Spenser (Japanese: ハヤテ Hayate) is the Leader of the Ringtown Pokémon Ranger Base. He has a Fearow as his partner.

In the games

At the start of Pokémon Ranger, the player (either Solana or Lunick) receives a letter from Spenser in response to the previous seven letters written to him in regards to becoming a Ranger. He tells the player to meet him in Fall City on Sunday wearing the Ranger uniform he sent them. Shortly after meeting the player, a Plusle or Minun (depending on the player's gender) angers a wild Houndoom, causing it to become vicious. Due to this, Spenser gives a Capture Styler to the player so that while he captured the Houndoom, they could capture the other Pokémon. And after an impressive capture, Spenser gives the player official Pokémon Ranger status.

It is Spenser's job to give missions to the Rangers of Ringtown in order to keep the peace in his area. It is also said that he used to work as part of a team with two of the other Ranger Leaders, Joel and Cameron. He maintains a fierce, yet friendly rivalry with Joel. This gives Spenser motivation to maintain his quality capture skills and he quickly gained a mighty record at the Capture Arena when it opened. This could be because briefly it is said that he, like the other leaders, have a Super Styler, which allows the player to capture Pokémon much faster.

During a mission to gather information on the Go-Rock Squad in their base, Lunick and Solana are sent on a mission as decoys. After they defeat the Go-Rock Quads who initiate a self destruct sequence in the base, they meet up with Spenser who tells them that he has retrieved Professor Hastings' stolen Super Styler and that he'll be going back into the base to save the wild Pokémon. Lunick and Solana are told to escape while they can. He soon unites with Joel and the two of them escape together, however the player doesn't see him again until he comes to meet them after defeating Gordor.

In Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia, it is revealed that he is a graduate of the Ranger School.
