Pokémon Fan Club Chairman
The Pokémon Fan Club Chairman is the head of the Pokémon Fan Club, a Pokémon lover association. There are four known chairmen, all of them old men.
In the games
There are four chairmen appearing in their respective regions. They all are chatty old men loving their Pokémon and bragging about them.
The Kanto Pokémon Fan Club Chairman first appears in the fan clubhouse in Vermilion City in Pokémon Red and Blue as well as their Generation III remakes. He talks about his two favorite Pokémon, Rapidash and Fearow at length and then gives the player a coupon to get a bicycle. In Pokémon Yellow he got a new hobby - taking Pokémon photos. The big photos of his Rapidash and Fearow can be seen on the walls of the clubhouse. He appears again in Pokémon Gold and Silver and their Generation IV remakes in the same place. Again, he talks about his Rapidash although this time he gives the player a Rare Candy for listening to his story. He also claims to have raised over 150 Pokémon in his life.
The Hoenn Pokémon Fan Club Chairman is at the club house in Slateport City in Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire. He claims to have raised over 100 different Pokémon in his lifetime and he travels across the nation on his Fearow. He also gives out Scarves when the player shows him a Pokémon with a condition high enough in the scarf's respective concentration, which boosts the Pokémon's condition in contests and Super Contests.
The Sinnoh Pokémon Fan Club Chairman appears in Hearthome City in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl. He says that his Fan Club is number one nationwide because he brags more than anyone. However, he doesn't do it anymore because of people's complaints. This may also explain why only one member is found in his club.
The Unova Pokémon Fan Club Chairman appears in Icirrus City in Pokémon Black and White. He checks one of the player's Pokémon and hands out a Exp. Share if the Pokémon is happy; if the Pokémon doesn't have enough happiness, the Chariman hands a Cleanse Tag. The Chairman also gives out gifts that vary on how much you have trained the Pokemon. If the Pokemon is trained from Level 1 to Level 100, he will give the player a King's Rock.
In the Pokémon Adventures manga
Three of the chairmen appear in Pokémon Adventures manga. They are all short, odd old men.
The chairman of the Kanto fan club's first appearance was in Danger: High Voltorb where he forced Red to be part of the community and even borrowed his Pikachu. His Abra, along with all members' Pokémon were stolen by Lt. Surge. When Red hears about that, he goes to S.S. Anne to rescue them and give them back to members of the fan club. When the chairman sees that his Abra evolved into Alakazam while being on the ship, he faints.
