In Generation II, they are women in suits with pointers. In Generation IV, they are older women in suits, with bags containing papers. In Kanto, they are usually found near School Kids.

In Generation VII, Teachers share their appearance with female Office Workers. One Teacher appears in the Trainers' School on Route 1 in Alola.
