The Pokémon Center men are a quintet of non-player characters that appear in Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald. They are all located in the Mauville City Pokémon Center, however only one will be present at a time. Each one can be indicated by the color of their hair.

Each man performs a different role.

If two or more players of Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire or Emerald mix records with each other, the men that were in each players' games will be transferred over.

The storyteller

This man, in his own words, "tells tales of legendary Trainers". He tells the player about records they have set as well as those set with other players they have mixed records with. When approached by the player, he will offer them choices of the records they would like to hear about, and will also add a comment about it.

The trader

The trader will allow the player to trade one secret base decoration for one of his own decorations. When the player mixes records with other Hoenn-centric games, the trader will keep the item the first player traded to him and will offer it to the new player for a trade. This allows easy trading of secret base decorations between games. The trader will offer a new trade every time the player mixes records. He has green hair.

The bard

The bard will sing a song to the player and ask them to change part of the lyrics of the song.

The hipster

The hipster adds phrases to the game's easy chat system.

Giddy

Giddy will have a "scintillating story" for player. He will either comment on word from easy chat system or something else, ask some other questions, like if player knows a nice place for vacation (though it's impossible to answer any of them as YES/NO make him continue) or tell player something else.
