== Other "Fishing Gurus" ==
Many other characters give fishing rods to players. In the Pokémon fandom, these have all become unofficially known as fishing gurus, even though they are not referred to as such in-game.
* In [[Generation IV]], a man who is found only after the player receives the [[National Dex]] in the [[Fight Area]] gives the player a Super Rod.
== Trivia ==
* Although in Generation I the Fuchsia Guru claims to be older than the Vermilion Guru, in Generation II the Guru in Vermilion claims to be the eldest of the brothers. This could perhaps be explained by the brothers moving around—in fact, it could be that there is only one Fishing Guru (from Vermilion in Generations I and III and from Lake of Rage in Generation II).
