GAME FREAK (Japanese: ゲームフリーク Game Freak) is a type of Pokémon Trainer that debuted in the Generation V games.

In the games

Game Freak employees appear in each of the main series games, with their headquarters on the third floor of the Celadon Condominiums. In the games in which Kanto is not visitable, they sometimes appear on vacation, with a group in Lilycove City, staying in the Cove Lily Motel, and a single member staying at the Hotel Grand Lake in Valor Lakefront. The main reason to visit them is to obtain a diploma, awarded after the completion of the Pokédex. In Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, the sound designer gives the GB Sounds after the player has obtained all 8 Kanto Badges.

Game Freak has its own building in Castelia City in Pokémon Black and White, where a character representing Shigeki Morimoto can be battled after stopping Team Plasma. Game Freak is found on 22F, just like in their real-world office in Carrot Tower. In Black 2 and White 2, aside from Morimoto, another employee which is based on Kōji Nishino can also be fought. Nishino uses a Snorlax as his highest leveled Pokémon, a reference to his nickname カビゴン Kabigon, after which Snorlax is named. In the English versions, he calls himself Snorlax.

In Sun and Moon, Game Freak has an office located in Heahea City. Morimoto returns as a Trainer the player can battle once per day, though the player must have become the Champion to do so. After being defeated for the first time, he will give the player the Oval Charm.
