No change in size, 9 June
top: replaced: {{ball|Lure}} → Lure Ball
In the Japanese version of {{game2|Gold|Silver|Crystal}}, they are depicted smoking, as fishermen smoking is a common stereotype in Japan. The cigarette was removed in international releases.
They specialize in {{type|Water}} Pokémon that can be caught via [[fishing]]. At least once in every core-series game prior to {{g|Sun and Moon}}, there is a Fisherman who will fight the player with a full team made up entirely of {{p|Magikarp}}. In [[Generation VII]], they keep their Pokémon in {{ball|[[Lure}} Ball]]s.
In [[Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!|Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!]], Fishermen will award three [[Poké Ball]]s along with [[prize money]] upon being defeated.
