The Fishing Brothers, or more commonly called the Fishing Gurus in the Pokémon fandom, are characters in Generations I, II and III who give out different types of Rods. They are all related to each other as brothers, and are spread out through Kanto and Johto. Other characters who give out Fishing Rods appear in Hoenn and Sinnoh.

The Fishing Brothers

Vermilion Fishing Guru

In Generation I and Generation III, a man known as the "Fishing Guru" can be found in Vermilion City, of Kanto, who gives away an Old Rod to the player. Later, in Generation II, he is known as the Fishing Dude and claims to be the eldest of the Fishing Brothers.

Lake of Rage Fishing Guru

In the Generation II and Generation IV games, a man known as the Fishing Guru lives at Lake of Rage, in Johto. His greatest dream is to see the world's largest Magikarp, and he regularly measures those brought to him in order to realize it. If the player brings him a large enough Magikarp, he will give the player an Ether as a prize.

Silence Bridge Fishing Guru

In Generation I, Generation II, Generation III, and Generation IV a brother of the Fishing Guru lives on Silence Bridge. He gives Super Rods to those in whom he detects a love of fishing. In Generation II, he claims to be a younger brother of the Fishing Guru of Lake of Rage. In FireRed and LeafGreen, he is one of the few sources of Balls introduced in Ruby and Sapphire, rewarding players with a Net Ball for showing him a record-breaking Magikarp.

Fuchsia City Fishing Guru

In Generation I and Generation III, the Fuchsia City Fishing Guru lives in Fuchsia City, in Kanto and gives away a Good Rod. He says he is the older brother of the Vermilion Fishing Guru. There is also a small pond at the back of his house, where people can fish.

Other "Fishing Gurus"

Many other characters give fishing rods to players. In the Pokémon fandom, these have all become unofficially known as fishing gurus, even though they are not referred to as such in-game.

Generation II

  • A man in the Route 32 Pokémon Center gives the player an Old Rod.
  • A man who has fished in Olivine City for 30 years gives the player a Good Rod in the Olivine Cafe.

Generation III

Generation IV

Trivia

  • Although in Generation I the Fuchsia Guru claims to be older than the Vermilion Guru, in Generation II the Guru in Vermilion claims to be the eldest of the brothers. This could perhaps be explained by the brothers moving around&mdash.
    • In fact, it could be that there is only one Fishing Guru (from Vermilion in Generations I and III and from Lake of Rage in Generation II and IV).
      • However, It is unlikely that there is only one brother since in the room of the Vermillion fishing guru, a book on the table has a description suggesting that there are in fact multiple gurus, if indirectly.
