=In'''Mr. theFuji''' Games=(Japanese: '''フジ{{tt|老人|ろうじん}}''' ''Elder Fuji'') is a kind old man who lives in [[Lavender Town]].
Mr. Fuji looks after abandoned and orphaned [[Pokémon]] in Lavender Town. He subscribes to [[Pokémon Fan Magazine]].

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.

=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 TCG=island again. The author's name is smudged but the remnant ジ ''ji'' is still readable in the Japanese version.
[[Mr. Fuji (Fossil)|Mr. Fuji]] appears in his own card in the [[Fossil (TCG)|Fossil]] expansion of the [[TCG]]. The card allows its player to return Pokémon to the deck from the bench.
 
==Misc==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 theorized that he may have been the inspiration for Dr. Fuji from [[Mewtwo Strikes Back]], due to their similar names and history in studying Mew. However, Dr. Fuji is consideribly younger than Mr. Fuji, leading to another theory that the senior Fuji is the junior Fuji's father. However, besides having the same surname and the aforementioned interest in Mew, there is nothing to back this up.
It is rumored that Mr. Fuji once lived on the {{ka|Pokémon Mansion}}, where [[Category:GamePokémon charactersMansion 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 anime==
{{Spoilers}}
===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 destruction of the lab where it was created.
 
===In Pokémon Origins===
[[File:Mr Fuji PO.png|250px|thumb|Mr. Fuji in [[Pokémon Origins]]]]
Mr. Fuji debuted 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 reappeared 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 [[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 the ability to defeat Mewtwo, allowing Red to {{pkmn2|caught|catch}} it.

====History====
====={{chap|Red, Green & Blue}}=====
Mr. Fuji first appeared in ''[[PS013|Sigh for Psyduck]]'', when he met {{adv|Red}} in [[Lavender Town]], on his way to pay his respects to his {{p|Doduo}}'s grave. Mr. Fuji invited Red to his house and told him about the [[Pokémon Tower]] and the {{OBP|ghost|literal}}s in there. Because of them, he was unable to bury his {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} in a proper place. Red then saw a photo of {{adv|Blue}} with Mr. Fuji, who told him that the had gone to the Pokémon Tower to defy the presence of any ghosts two weeks earlier, which made Red willing to go there as well. Once Blue defeated [[Koga]] and the truth about the ghosts was revealed to the citizens of [[Lavender Town]], Mr. Fuji could finally take his deceased Pokémon to rest at the Pokémon Tower.
 
====={{chap|Gold, Silver & Crystal}}=====
In ''[[PS179|The Last Battle XIII]]'', he makes a cameo appearance as one of the [[Pokémon Fan Club]] members who sent Pokémon to help defeat {{adv|Tower duo|Lugia and Ho-Oh}} in [[Ilex Forest]].
 
In ''[[PS295|Double Down Deoxys]]'', he makes a cameo appearance in a [[#Fame Checker|photo]] in [[Blaine]]'s photo album, standing shoulder to shoulder with him in a jungle.
 
====={{chap|Emerald}}=====
In ''[[PS337|Epilogue]]'', he makes a cameo appearance in one of the ships heading to the {{gdis|Battle Frontier|III}}.

==In the TCG==
{{main|Mr. Fuji (Fossil 58)}}
'''Mr. Fuji''' was introduced as a {{TCG|Trainer card}} in the [[Pokémon Trading Card Game]] during the English Original Series (the Japanese Original Era). First released in the Japanese {{TCG|Mystery of the Fossils}} expansion, it later debuted in English in the {{TCG|Fossil}} expansion, with both prints featuring an illustration by [[Ken Sugimori]]. Mr. Fuji allows the player to add a Pokémon on their {{TCG|Bench}}, and all cards attached to it, to their deck and then shuffle it.
