The Pokémon hunters are a pair of minor antagonists who appeared in The Power of Us.
In the anime
The two Pokémon hunters watched the Pokémon Channel's coverage about a rare Pokémon living in the mountains around Fula City, and became interested in capturing it. Meanwhile, Margo overheard Callahan continuing an earlier lie he told to Risa, and assumed he knew about Zeraora, her friend. As a result, she went on to sabotage the Wind Festival to protect her friend.
Margo spotted the Pokémon hunters the next day. The pair had already netted themselves a Sentret, but were looking for a bigger target to make a profit. They soon noticed Margo, and she pointed them to a different direction for a Pokémon to capture. As the hunters prepared to leave, a Teddiursa and Ditto caught their attention. When they tried to capture the two Pokémon, Zeraora intervened, but also revealed itself to the hunters and a battle began. Zeraora did its best to fend off the hunters' Pokémon, but was left fatigued from injuries it had sustained earlier. Zeraora, Margo, and the Pokémon were saved by the arrival of Ash and his friends, who had come to find the eternal flame that Margo had stolen. Mayor Oliver threatened the hunters with legal action, and the pair quickly fled the area in response.
Personality and characteristics
The hunters are opportunistic people who travel around in a truck, looking for their next profit. They use their net guns to ensnare unassuming wild Pokémon. For tougher opponents, they have their Houndoom and Sneasel to rely on.

Pokémon the Movie: The Power of Us: Zeraora's Story
A trio of Pokémon hunters served as antagonists in Pokémon the Movie: The Power of Us: Zeraora's Story. Two of the hunters made their first appearance in ESEZ1, where they were part of a virtual reality simulation of Fula City's past. There, the two attempted to kidnap the wild Pokémon living in Fula City, only to be stopped by Zeraora. Thinking they could make a profit on Zeraora as well, the hunters attempted to take it as well and used their Pokémon to battle it. Zeraora easily defeated the hunters' Pokémon and forced them to escape. Afterwards, the hunters informed their boss, Agee, of the situation, which led to him deciding to face Zeraora himself.
In ESEZ2, Agee and the other hunters attacked a boy named Norbert in an attempt to steal his Elekid. After Norbert was saved by Zeraora, Agee battled it, only to lose as well, forcing him and the hunters to retreat once more.
