The apprentice (Japanese: でし apprentice) is a character from Pokémon Emerald located in the Battle Frontier.

The apprentice will look up to the player for their skill and strategies, and asks to player to assist them. Events in the game also change based on the apprentice. Eventually, the apprentice will battle with the player, either as an opponent or a partner in a Multi Battle.

In time, the apprentice will state that they feel that they have learned everything they can from the player and depart the Battle Tower. After answering all their questions, a different apprentice will take their place, and the cycle is repeated.
