A '''Scientist''' (Japanese: '''はぐれけんきゅういん''' ''Researcher Gone Astray'' in Generations I, II, and {{game|HeartGold and SoulSilver|s}}; '''けんきゅういん''' ''Researcher'' in Generations III, V, VI, and {{game2|Diamond|Pearl|Platinum}}) is a type of [[Pokémon Trainer]] that first debuted in the [[Generation I]] games. They are men in [[wp:White coat|lab coats]] and glasses, with the ones in {{2v2|FireRed|LeafGreen}} as well as {{2v2|HeartGold|SoulSilver}} holding {{wp|beaker (glassware)|beakers}} as well. They are often aligned with [[Team Rocket]], as shown throughout the first three generations, and with [[Team Galactic]], as shown in {{3v2|Diamond|Pearl|Platinum}}. In {{2v2|Black|White}}, female Scientists, who were depicted as women with dark hair and glasses wearing lab coats, were introduced.
 
They generally use inorganic or artificial Pokémon such as {{p|Porygon}}, {{p|Muk}}, {{p|Voltorb}}, and {{p|Magnemite}}, but also {{type|Psychic}} Pokémon in [[Sinnoh]]- and [[Unova]]-based games. Scientists of the Sinnoh and Unova regions start the battle by using [[battle item]]s such as [[X Attack]] or [[X Defense]]. In the [[Battle Maison]] in [[Generation VI]], they only use {{type|Poison}}, {{type|Electric}}, and [[fossil]] Pokémon. In [[Generation VII]], they keep their Pokémon in {{ball|[[Repeat}} Ball]]s. Scientists in the [[Battle Tree]] use teams with strategies revolving around {{m|Trick Room}}.
 
In {{eng|Pokémon Stadium}}, Scientists are known as '''Lab Men'''. In the English version of [[Pokémon Colosseum]] and [[Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness]], Scientists are known as '''Researchers''', while Scientists working for [[Cipher]] are called '''Cipher R&D''' (Japanese: '''{{tt|シャドー研究員|シャドーけんきゅういん}}''' ''Shadow Researcher'') in XD.

A Scientist appeared in ''[[PW27|Fossil + Pokémon = Aerodactyl!?]]''. ofThe the [[How I Became a Pokémon Card]] manga where heScientist was in his laboratory with a woman wherewhen they get into an argument with each other about discovering Pokémon. While the Scientist was tired, [[Team Rocket]] barged in and demanddemanded him to give them the [[Old Amber]]. The Scientist accidentally tripped on a table leg, causing the stufftable to fall afterand crashingcrash andinto the machine holding the Old Amber. This caused it to rapidly regenerate into an {{p|Aerodactyl}}. When Team Rocket went after Aerodactyl, the Scientist pulled out a Poké Ball and caught Aerodactyl.
 
In an attempt to get away from Team Rocket, the Scientist retreated on his {{p|Dodrio}}. After stalling the villainous team with {{p|Jolteon}} and {{p|Exeggutor}}, he encountered a waterfall and sent out {{p|Lapras}} to cross the ocean nearby. Their getaway on the ocean was stalled after Team Rocket's {{p|Gyarados}} appeared from underwater. With no other option, the Scientist sent out Aerodactyl and blasted away Team Rocket. This caused the tides to get out of control which knocked the Scientist into the river. Aerodactyl rode down and saved Scientist after seeing its own kind. After saving him, the Scientist waved Aerodactyl goodbye as it flew off with the other Aerodactyl. The Scientist returned to the lab after being saved.
