Perrin (Japanese: サザレ Sazare) is a character introduced in The Teal Mask in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. She is a traveler and photographer who is visiting Kitakami to seek and take a picture of a certain Pokémon.[3] She is the only character in the games to have the Trainer class Photographer (Japanese: 写真家 Photographer).

She is a descendant of Adaman,[1] with whom she shares a striking resemblance.

In the core series games

Perrin can be found in Mossui Town along with her Hisuian Growlithe. She has come to Kitakami to get a photo of a certain Pokémon. Once the player has obtained at least 150 Pokémon in the Kitakami Pokédex, she will battle them to see how strong they are, and then inform them that the Pokémon she's searching for is a special Ursaluna known as the Bloodmoon Beast, which arrived to Kitakami from her homeland of Sinnoh. She tells the player that this Ursaluna has been sighted in Timeless Woods and asks them to meet her there.

In Timeless Woods, the player saves Perrin from a wild Ariados and helps her set up a tent as their temporary photo survey base. In order to find the Bloodmoon Beast, the player and Perrin wait for a foggy night to occur, during which the player needs to photograph ten different Pokémon species around the forest, allowing Perrin to use her Pokémon Searcher device to filter out the presence of every Pokémon in the forest that isn't Ursaluna. While the device does its work, Perrin tells the player how she used to be a successful photographer with awards and prestige, but lately, she's been having a slump, and hopes that getting photos of the Bloodmoon Beast would get her career back on track.

Once Ursaluna has been located, Perrin tries to take a photo of it, but her camera's flash agitates the beast, forcing the player to battle it. After the player has successfully beaten and caught Ursaluna, Perrin rushes back to Mossui Town to get her photos developed. Unfortunately, when the player meets Perrin back in town, she tells them that the photos she took are blurred and out of focus, making them useless. Despite this, however, she has regained her passion for photography thanks to this experience, and rewards the player's help with a Choice Scarf and one of her Hisuian Growlithe before departing, hoping to see the player again someday.
