Professor Takao Cozmo (Japanese: ソライシ・タカオ博士 Dr. Takao Soraishi) is a character in Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, Omega Ruby, and Alpha Sapphire. He is a meteoriticist who lives in Fallarbor Town, Hoenn.

In the games

Professor Cozmo leaves either with Team MagmaREOR or Team AquaSAS for the Meteor Falls, thinking that they are going to help him excavate meteors. However, the offending team steals the Meteorite, intending to use it to power their machine at Mt. Chimney. After defeating the Grunts and the team's leaderRSE, the player can take the Meteorite from the machine and return it to the Professor in exchange for TM27 (Return)RSE.

In Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire Special Demo Version's first scenario, Takao appears in Mossdeep Space Center asking for Orlando and Steven's help.

In Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire proper, notes in Sea Mauville reveal that Takao's father, Raizoh, was a researcher for Greater Mauville Holdings and the Devon Corporation who spent nearly all his time working, apparently causing his marriage to unravel. One of the few things Raizoh had to remind him of his son was a Hi Skitty doll the latter had sent to Sea Mauville. The retrieval of that doll proves to be the object of the Sea Mauville sidequest. Takao used to live in Rustboro, but at some time moved, possibly to Fallabor.

Meteor Falls
"I... I'm Cozmo... I'm a Professor... I usually study Meteorites in Fallarbor Town... Then some people from Team MagmaR/Team AquaS made me guide them to Meteor Falls... They promised me that they would excavate Meteorites for me... But, I... Team MagmaR/Team AquaS tricked me... Oh... That Meteorite... It will never be mine now... But that Team MagmaR/Team AquaS... What are they going to do with that Meteorite at Mt. Chimney?"
"That Team MagmaR/Team AquaS... What are they going to do with that Meteorite at Mt. Chimney?"
Professor Cozmo's house
"Oh... I never should have let myself be conned into telling Team MagmaR/Team AquaS where you can find Meteorites... That Meteorite from Meteor Falls... It's never going to be mine now..."
"Oh! Hah? That item... Could it be? Is it the Meteorite that Team MagmaR/Team AquaS took from Meteor Falls? Please, may I have it? I'm not asking for it for free. How about in exchange for this TM?"
No: Oh, but... I'm crushed with disappointment..."
"Please, may I have that Meteorite? I'm not asking for it for free. How about in exchange for this TM?"
Yes: This TM, it represents my feeling of gratitude. Please use it!"
"Oh, I can't believe it. This is really, really great! This is really going to help my research!"

Meteor Falls
"I... I'm Cozmo... I'm a Professor... Team Magma asked me to guide them to Meteor Falls... But they tricked me. They even took my Meteorite away... And then another similar bunch, Team Aqua showed up. After that... I don't understand any of it. But that Team Magma... What are they going to do with that Meteorite at Mt. Chimney?"
"That Team Magma... What are they going to do with that Meteorite at Mt. Chimney?"

"Wha-wha-wha-what?!"
"Augh?!"
"B-but...they...I...only..."
Professor Cozmo's house
"Hah...haha... Thanks to these children, I have somehow returned."
"But I need to thank you, as well. You truly saved me from disaster. I hope you'll take this TM as some small form of repayment."
"Oh, welcome, welcome! Make yourself at home."
  • After the Delta Episode
"Oh! Why, hello again! What good fortune... I'd been thinking that if I saw you again, I would want to give you this..."
"I happened to pick this up some time ago, while doing excavation at Meteor Falls. I hoped it might help you and your team along on your journey. But I'm still astounded by it all. A relationship between the Mega Stones, Key Stones, and the Meteorites... My, but new facts do come to light every day! This is what makes my research feel worthwhile! I know a man, a dear friend in the Kalos region, who has been researching Mega Evolution. We worked together a few years back here at Meteor Falls researching Meteorites. I'll have to share this information with him at once. It might propel his research forward, and help future Trainers and Pokémon. I hope it does."
Letters to his father at Sea Mauville
First letter
"Dear Daddy,
How are you? Are you working really hard? I'm doing well. I'm doing all my homework, and I'm helping at home, too. Mommy's working hard and makes us dinner every night. Do you have to work this weekend? Are you going to come home? If you come home, take me to see the star show, OK?
—Takao Cozmo
P.S. I'm going to send you the picture I drew at the Trainers' School."
Second letter
It looked like another letter, but it's a drawing. The drawing is of a boy's face, and written next to it are the words "I love you, Daddy."
Third letter
"Dear Daddy,
How are you? Are you working really hard? I was sad that you didn't come last weekend. But Mommy didn't seem so sad. She went out with her friend. I finally got the telescope that I've been wanting. It was from you, wasn't it? Thanks, Daddy. I really, really wanted it. I like looking at the sky, Daddy. When I look at the stars, I wonder if you are looking at the same stars, too. Let's look at the stars together, next time you come home.
—Takao Cozmo"
Fourth letter
"Dear Daddy,
How are you? You aren't working too hard, are you? You never come home anymore. I'm worried if you're OK. Mommy goes out with her friends a lot. It seems like fun, so I guess she's doing OK. The Shelgon you gave me evolved the other day. But I liked it better when it was a Shelgon and it looked like a Meteorite. Salamence was kind of a letdown, so I asked a friend to trade it for his Solrock. I'm sorry, Daddy. I know it was a present, but I think Solrock is cooler. When it gets dark tonight, I'm going to look at the stars again. I'm going to think of you when I do.
—Takao Cozmo"
Fifth letter
"Dear Daddy,
I was really, really happy to get to meet you the other day. It was so fun playing together again, and going to see the stat show, too, even if it was just the two of us. It was sad that Mommy couldn't go, and even more sad when you and Mommy fought that night. I'll study hard, just like you told me, and I'll be a good boy, so don't fight. But let me keep watching the stars, even if I have to do all my homework, too. When I grow up, I want to be a professor and study the stars.
—Takao Cozmo"
Sixth letter
"Dear Daddy,
Thanks for writing to me. I'm doing really well here, so please don't worry about me. I hope I'll see you again someday. I dream about it all the time. I brought the telescope you bought me to our new house. Please don't work too hard, Daddy. I hope you are OK. I will always, always love the stars, and I will always, always love you.
—Takao Cozmo
P.S. I'll give you my Hi Skitty doll. Please take care of it for me."
Seventh letter
It looked like another letter, but it's a photo. There's a little boy holding a telescope, with a woman beside him, looking bored.

In the manga

Professor Cozmo in Ash and Pikachu

In the Ash and Pikachu manga

Professor Cozmo appeared in Two Groups Attacking! Magma VS. Aqua of the Ash and Pikachu manga.

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

In the Chuang Yi translation of the fourth chapter, he is referred to as Professor Starstone. This error is rectified when he appears in a flashback during the fifth chapter.

Professor Cozmo believed Team Aqua to be noble heroes, so he assisted them with the meteorite and their device on Mt. Chimney. He was taken hostage by Team Aqua and was locked inside their headquarters shortly after their mission succeeded, and only rescued by Winona and Flannery deep in the crisis. Winona took him to the Pokémon Association airship where he was reunited with his three aides.

In the FireRed & LeafGreen chapter, it is revealed in a flashback that Cozmo found the meteor that fell from the sky which was later a part of Team Aqua's plan. He also discovered two life forms on the meteor, and passed them to Mossdeep Space Center where they were later stolen.

Cozmo returns in the Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire chapter at his Fallarbor Town base, predicting that another meteor would hit the planet in "10 days' time".

He is apparently good friends with Roxanne and was once her teacher.
