The Scarf Guy (Japanese: バンダナにいさん Scarf Brother) lives in Pastoria City, in the house nearest to the Route 213 exit. The Scarf Guy lives with his sister and a Pachirisu. His girlfriend is the Massage Girl in Veilstone City, whom he keeps in contact with through mail, which he lets Pokémon deliver. The Scarf Guy checks a Pokémon's condition to see if it is worthy of a Scarf. If the Pokémon's condition is at its maximum value in an area, he will give out the corresponding Scarf to that Pokémon. If not, he will tell the player to improve its condition with Poffins.

The Scarf Guy only gives out one Scarf of each type. If another Pokémon with a maximized stat in the same area is shown he will simply tell the player to feed it more Poffins.
