Oreburgh Gym's caretaker, as seen in Platinum

The gym caretaker is a character in the main series Pokémon games. The title actually belongs to at least four characters, each corresponding to a different region. In each case, the caretaker is usually found at the front of a Pokémon Gym, ready to offer tactical advice to novice Trainers.

Some gyms are unique, in that their caretaker seemingly roams outside its walls. The Celadon Gym caretaker is not seen in his gym, and appears instead at the Rocket Game Corner, where he plays the slot machines. Similarly, the Cianwood Gym caretaker is found in the city's Pokémon Center instead of the gym. The Petalburg Gym caretaker will vanish after the player has defeated his or her father, and, in Generation II only, the Cinnabar Gym caretaker will arrive after Blaine has been defeated.

No official name has been released for the gym caretaker. This has given rise to the fan-designated name "Jim Gai"—a pun on "gym guy".
