A Fisherman or Fisher (Japanese: つりびと Fisherman) is a type of Pokémon Trainer that first debuted in the Generation I games. They are middle-aged men with rods, reels, and fishing gear. There is normally a Poké Ball attached to the end of the line. The class was named Fisher in Generation II, but otherwise is named Fisherman.

In Japanese Gold, Silver, and Crystal Versions, they are depicted smoking, as fishermen smoking is a common stereotype in Japan; however, the cigarette was removed in international releases.

They specialize in Water-type Pokémon that can be caught via fishing. At least once in every game, there is a fisherman who will fight the player with a team made up entirely of Magikarp.
