A Poké Fan (Japanese: だいすきクラブ Lovers Club), formatted as Pokéfan prior to Pokémon X and Y, is a type of Pokémon Trainer that debuted in the Generation II games. They come in two varieties: middle-aged women with Poké Dolls (outside of Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire) or a Pokémon magazineORAS, and middle-aged men with small children dressed in PikachuGSCRSEBWB2W2, PichuDPPtHGSSBDSP, or PanchamXY outfits, or a bag of Pokémon-themed merchandiseORAS. Trainers of this class are members of the Pokémon Fan Club.

In Double Battles, two Poké Fans paired together are called a Poké Fan Family.

They raise many different cute Pokémon that usually belong to the Fairy Egg Group. The Pokémon of Poké Fans are notable for always holding a Berry, Oran Berry, or Sitrus Berry, depending on the game. In Generation V and Generation VI games, they may use Hyper Potions and Full Restores on injured Pokémon during battle.

  • In all of the games, the species of the dolls accompanying the female Poké Fan sprite shown changes (progressing with Clefairy, Wailmer, Bonsly, Sewaddle, Flabébé, Banette, Skitty, and Pancham), but until Pokémon X and Y, the male Poké Fan sprite has always been shown holding a child in a Pikachu or Pichu costume, as well as the Pokémon's icon imprinted onto their T-shirts.
  • Because the female Poké Fan sprite remains the same between Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum and HeartGold and SoulSilver, they are shown to have Bonsly dolls in a region where Sudowoodo appears only once (and is apparently not well-known) and where Bonsly does not appear in the regional Pokédex.
  • The Poké Fan is voiced by Kaiji Tang in Pokémon Masters EX.
