Detective Pikachu

Baker is the head of the Baker Detective Agency and a friend of Harry Goodman and Frank Holiday. A year prior to the events of the game, Ryme City started seeing an increase in Pokémon-caused incidents. Six months prior, Baker and Harry received a request from Frank to to investigate them.

Baker appears for the first time at the end of Chapter 1, when Tim Goodman visits the Baker Detective Agency for the first time. He warns Tim against investigating Harry's accident, as there were suspicious things about it and he doesn't want Tim to put himself in danger.

He appears again at the beginning of Chapter 3, where he lends his car to Tim so that Tim can drive to his new part-time job at PCL. He then receives a visit from Frank Holiday, so he tells Frank about Tim's arrival in Ryme City. Frank is concerned that Tim won't listen to Baker's warning, but Baker thinks Tim is an agreeable young man. Frank is later proven correct when Tim catches Carlos Hernando, the man who caused Harry's accident. He is disappointed that Tim didn't listen to him, but he understands how Tim feels. So, rather than telling him to stop, he asks Tim to tell him the next time he goes to investigate something so he can help Tim out. He also acknowledges that Tim has talent as a detective.

Baker's Pokémon partner is Accelgor. It is extremely shy and often hides in Baker's office, watching the people who come to visit. It loves doughnuts. It is sometimes referred to by the nickname Accie.

Baker has several entries in Tim's case list:
