A '''Pokémon Contest announcer''' (Japanese: '''ポケモンコンテスト司会''' ''Pokémon Contest Moderator'') is a [[Human|person]] who works at [[Contest Hall]]s hosting [[Pokémon Contest]]s. Contest announcers have appeared in the [[core series]] {{pkmn|games}}, the {{pkmn|anime}}, and multiple {{pkmn|manga}} series. They present the contestants, speak to the audience, and keep the event moving by announcing the start of each round and giving a continuous description of what is happening.

In the {{pkmn|anime}}, an unnamed announcer appeared in ''[[AG013|All Things Bright and Beautifly!]]'' during the [[Rustboro City]] [[Pokémon Contest]]. He was theannouncers oneare responsible for explaining the proceedings to the audience, introducing the [[Contest Judge|panel of judges]], welcoming each [[Pokémon Coordinator]] on stage, and showing the prize [[Ribbon]] at the beginning of the competition.
An unnamed announcer appeared in ''[[AG013|All Things Bright and Beautifly!]]'' during the [[Rustboro City]] [[Pokémon Contest]]. Starting with ''[[AG035|Win, Lose or Drew!]]'', [[Vivian Meridian|Vivian]] fulfilled the emcee duties for every other Pokémon Contest held in the [[Hoenn]] [[region]] and the [[Hoenn Grand Festival]] as well. She hosted every competition in a formal and ceremonious way, much like the host of an award ceremony.
The younger sister of Vivian, [[Lilian Meridian|Lilian]], was introduced in ''[[AG143|The Saffron Con]]'' as the announcer for the [[Kanto]] Pokémon Contests. Unlike her sister, Lilian's style as an announcer was more in line with that of a {{wp|Sports commentator|sportscaster}}. In addition, she was always trying to get the audience pumped up and create a cheerful atmosphere in the [[Contest Hall]]s. This was noted by {{Ash}} and {{ashfr}}, who commented how the crowd in Kanto ContestsContest Halls differed from the ones in Hoenn.
In the [[Sinnoh]] region, the master of ceremonies is [[Marian]], who made her debut appearance in ''[[DP011|Mounting a Coordinator Assault!]]'' during the [[Jubilife City]] Pokémon Contest. Besides working as an announcer, Marian has a [[Television|TV show]] and she also records videos for the official Pokémon Contest website.
[[Jessie]] disguised as the reporter Jessadia was once the co-announcer of the [[Kanto Grand Festival]] alongside Lilian. She also helped Marian during the [[Wallace Cup]] that was held on the shores of [[Lake Valor]], interviewing the competing {{pkmn|Coordinator}}s from the quarters up to the finals.
