This article is about the Trainer class. For the magazine, see Pokémon Fan.

A PokéFan (Japanese: だいすきクラブ Lovers Club) is a type of Pokémon Trainer that first debuted in the Generation II games. They come in two varieties: Middle-aged women with Poké Dolls, and middle-aged men with small children dressed in Pikachu outfits. Trainers of this class are members of Pokémon Fan Club.

They raise many different cute Pokémon, that usually belong to the Fairy egg group. The Pokémon of PokéFans are notable for always holding a Berry or Oran Berry, depending on the game.

In Danger: High Voltorb of Pokémon Adventures, a group of PokéFans congregate in the Pokémon Fan Club headquarters to talk about their favorite Pokémon and to read their own magazine.


  • In all of the games, the species of the dolls accompanying the female PokéFan sprite is shown with has changed, but the male PokéFan sprite has always been shown with Pikachu or Pichu, both on his t-shirt and the costumed child.
  • Because the female PokéFan sprite remains the same between Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum and HeartGold and SoulSilver, they are shown to have Bonsly dolls in a region where Sudowoodo appears only once (and is apparently not well-known) and where Bonsly does not appear in the regional Pokédex.
