The '''Pokémon hunters''' are a pair of minor antagonists who appeared in ''[[M21|The Power of Us]]''.
==HistoryIn the anime==
The two [[Pokémon poacher|Pokémon hunter]]s watched the Pokémon Channel's coverage about a rare {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} living in the mountains around [[Fula City]], and became interested in capturing it. Meanwhile, [[Margo]] overheard [[Callahan]] continuing an earlier lie he told to [[Risa]], and assumed he knew about {{OBP|Zeraora|M21}}, her friend. As a result, she went on to sabotage the [[Wind Festival]] to protect her friend.
Margo spotted the Pokémon hunters the next day. The pair had already netted themselves a {{p|Sentret}}, but were looking for a bigger target to make a profit. They soon noticed Margo, and she pointed them to a different direction for a Pokémon to capture. As the hunters prepared to leave, a {{p|Teddiursa}} and {{p|Ditto}} caught their attention. When they tried to capture the two Pokémon, Zeraora intervened, but also revealed itself to the hunters and a {{pkmn|battle}} began. Zeraora did its best to fend off the hunters' Pokémon, but was left fatigued from injuries it had sustained earlier. Zeraora, Margo, and the Pokémon were then saved by the arrival of {{OBP|Ash Ketchum|M20|Ash}} and his friends, who had come to find the eternal flame that Margo had stolen. [[Mayor Oliver]] threatened the hunters with legal action, and the pair quickly fled the area in response.
===Personality and characteristics===
The hunters are opportunistic people who travel around in a truck, looking for their next profit. They use their net guns to ensnare unassuming [[wild Pokémon]]. For tougher opponents, they have their {{p|Houndoom}} and {{p|Sneasel}} to rely on.

A trio of Pokémon hunters served as antagonists in ''[[Pokémon the Movie: The Power of Us: Zeraora's Story]]''. Two of the hunters made their first appearance in [[ESEZ1]], where they were part of a virtual reality simulation of [[Fula City]]'s past. There, the two attempted to kidnap the wild Pokémon living in Fula City, only to be stopped by {{OBP|Zeraora|M21}}. Thinking they could make a profit on Zeraora as well, the hunters attempted to take it as well and used their Pokémon to battle it. Zeraora easily defeated the hunters' Pokémon and forced them to escape. Afterward, the hunters informed their boss, [[Agai]], of the situation, which led to him deciding to face Zeraora himself.
In [[ESEZ2]], Agai and the other hunters attacked a boy named [[Nozomu]] in an attempt to steal his {{p|Elekid}}. After Nozomu was saved by Zeraora, Agai battled it, only to lose as well, forcing him and the hunters to retreat once more.
