Mr. Fuji looks after abandoned and orphaned {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} at the Lavender Volunteer Pokémon House in [[Lavender Town]]. He subscribes to {{DL|Magazines in the Pokémon world|Pokémon Fan}} Magazine. Mr. Fuji is supposedly shy. Mr. Fuji wishes for the happiness of all Pokémon. He cares for the {{p|Cubone}} that [[Team Rocket]] orphaned.
 
Mr. Fuji is not a nativeresident of Lavender Town. He used to live on [[Cinnabar Island]], where he was known as '''Dr. Fuji''' (Japanese: '''フジ{{tt|博士|はかせ}}''' ''Dr. Fuji''), the founder of [[PokémonCinnabar Lab]]. He is a close friend of [[Blaine]], as indicated by a portrait in the [[Cinnabar Gym]] in {{game|FireRed and LeafGreen|s}}.
 
In the [[Generation I]] games and Pokémontheir FireRed and LeafGreen[[remake]]s, when members of Team Rocket killed {{OBP|Marowak|ghost}} at [[Pokémon Tower]], Mr. Fuji marched up to their [[Team Rocket Hideout|hideout]] and started to rant about how Team Rocket was abusing Pokémon. Later, Mr. Fuji went to the Pokémon Tower to calm the Marowak's restless spirit, but Team Rocket appeared and held him hostage until the {{player}} drove them out of the tower. In gratitude, Mr. Fuji gives the player a [[Poké Flute]].
 
In {{game|Emerald}}, there is a message left at [[Faraway Island]] where a {{pkmn2|wild}} {{p|Mew}} can be found. The message pleads for only "a kindhearted person" to ever set foot on the island again. The author's name is smudged but the remnant ジ ''ji'' is still readable in the Japanese version.
In the [[Generation II]] games and {{game|HeartGold and SoulSilver|s}}, Mr. Fuji does not have a prominent role. He is found in the [[House of Memories]] paying respects to the deceased Pokémon there. In the house, there are hidden chambers that only Mr. Fuji has access to.
 
It is rumored that Mr. Fuji once lived on the {{ka|Pokémon Mansion}}, where [[Pokémon Mansion journals|journals]] related to the discovery of {{p|Mew}} and the birth of {{p|Mewtwo}} can be found. The mansion being located on Cinnabar Island and the fact that Fuji was a doctor are the only implications given in the games he appears in. However, this is also backed up not only by Pokémon Emerald as aforementioned, but by [[Mr. Fuji#In the anime|different anime media]], suggesting he is in fact the author of the Pokémon Mansion journals and thus, the scientist related to the creation of Mewtwo in the games as well.

===In the main series===
{{main|Dr. Fuji (anime)}}
Mr. Fuji as in the elder from [[Lavender Town]] hasn't appeared in the [[Pokémon anime]] series. However, evidence from the other media suggest that Dr. Fuji from ''[[M01|Mewtwo Strikes Back]]'' is based on him. In the movie, Dr. Fuji was involved in the creation of {{OBP|Mewtwo|original series}}, from which he did not survive due to Mewtwo's destructingdestruction of the lab where it was created.
 
===In Pokémon Origins===
[[File:Mr Fuji PO.png|250px|thumb|Mr. Fuji in [[Pokémon Origins]]]]
Mr. Fuji's first appearance in [[Pokémon Origins]] wasdebuted in ''[[PO02|File 2: Cubone]]''. Much like in the {{pkmn|games}}, he had gone to the [[Pokémon Tower]] after it was taken over by [[Team Rocket]], trying to convince them to leave, but wound up as their hostage. After Team Rocket was driven out of the Pokémon Tower by {{OBP|Red|Origins}}, Mr. Fuji rewarded the young Pokémon Trainer with the [[Poké Flute]] and a pair of mysterious stones. When Red asked what the stones were for, Mr. Fuji told him that he would find out soon enough.
 
Mr. Fuji later appearedreappeared in ''[[PO04|File 4: Charizard]]'', where his past as Dr. Fuji is revealed by [[Professor Oak]] soon after he concluded that [[Pokémon Mansion journals|the journals]] Red found at the {{ka|Pokémon Mansion}} were his. He explained that Dr. Fuji used to be dedicated to Pokémon researching, but after he discovered a {{p|Mew|new species}}, the subjects of his studies were dismissed, and the Doctor was trying to artificially create a {{p|Mewtwo|powerful new Pokémon}}. Despite their last names matching, Red was skeptical about both being the same person, but the Professor told him it was very likely, as Dr. Fuji did a research related to mysterious stones flowing with energy, like the ones that Mr. Fuji gave him.
 
Later, in their home at [[Lavender Town]], [[Reina]] told Mr. Fuji about the rumors of an incredibly strong Pokémon seen in the [[Cerulean Cave]]. After hearing that the Pokémon is likely a {{t|Psychic}} type, he indicated that he knew the identity of this Pokémon. After hearing of Red heading to capture the mysterious Pokémon, {{p|Mewtwo}}, Mr. Fuji began to think about Red's possibilities to win the fight against it. During his thinking session, Red battled Mewtwo in the Cerulean Cave, and wound up getting almost all of his Pokémon defeated, leaving him with only his {{p|Charizard}}. While Charizard battled Mewtwo, Mr. Fuji understood that Red's only hope of victory lied within the stones he had given to him. The stones, revealed to be a [[Mega Stone|Charizardite X]] and a [[Key Stone]], gave Charizard strength to rise from the brink of defeat and [[Mega Evolution|Mega Evolve]] into Mega Charizard X. This new power gave Charizard capabilitythe ability to defeat Mewtwo, allowing Red to {{pkmn2|caught|catch}} it.

===In Pokémon Adventures===
[[File:Mr Fuji Doduo Adventures.png|thumb|120px|Mr. Fuji (right)in withPokémon his {{p|Doduo}} and {{adv|Blue}}Adventures]]
Mr. Fuji first appears in ''[[PS013|Sigh for Psyduck]]'', when he meets {{adv|Red}} in [[Lavender Town]], on his way to pay his respects to his {{p|Doduo}}'s grave. Mr. Fuji invites Red to his house and tells about the [[Pokémon Tower]] and the {{OBP|ghost|literal}}s in there. Because of them, he cannot bury his {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} in a proper place. Red sees a photo of {{adv|Blue}} with Mr. Fuji, who tells him that the lad went to the Pokémon Tower to defy the presence of any ghosts, which makes Red willing to go there as well. Once Blue defeats [[Koga#In the Pokémon Adventures manga|Koga]] and the truth about the ghosts is revealed to the citizens of [[Lavender Town]], Mr. Fuji can finally take his deceased Pokémon to rest at the Pokémon Tower.
 
Mr. Fuji made a couple of cameo appearances in later chapters. In ''[[PS179|The Last Battle XIII]]'', he is one of the [[Pokémon Fan Club]] members that sent Pokémon to defeat {{p|Lugia}} and {{p|Ho-Oh}}. In ''[[PS295|Double Down Deoxys]]'', the [[#Fame Checker|photo]] of Mr. Fuji and [[Blaine]] standing shoulder to shoulder is seen in an album.====History====
