The quiz professor (Japanese: クイズハカセ Quiz professor) is a reoccurring character in the game Detective Pikachu Returns. She is a Pokémon studies major at Ryme University.
In the games
The quiz professor is an infamous student at Ryme University, the university that Tim attends. She loves sharing the knowledge that she's learned in her major, Pokémon studies, by quizzing people about Pokémon, earning her nickname. Her real name is unknown. In addition, she enjoys writing the daily crossword puzzle in Ryme City's daily newspaper.
She first appears in Serenity Park after Tim Goodman and Detective Pikachu have interviewed Pawniard. She's honored to meet Tim and Pikachu, and she's shocked that they don't know her. She appears again at the southern ruins, Second Avenue, and Bamboo Borough.
Each time she appears, she quizzes Tim about three species of Pokémon that can be found somewhere in the area. She describes something about the Pokémon's appearance or characteristics, and Tim has to figure out which Pokémon she's talking about. This is accomplished by finding the Pokémon and talking to it after the quiz professor gives the hint; talking to the Pokémon before getting its hint from the quiz professor does not allow the player to immediately answer the question. If the player answers all three of the quiz professor's questions before completing the current chapter, the daily crossword will appear in the newspaper the following day, with each hint and answer being identical to the ones in the quiz professor's last quiz.
The following table lists all the quiz professor's questions and answers for each chapter.
