A Poké Fan (Japanese: だいすきクラブ Lovers Club), formatted as Pokéfan prior to Pokémon X and Y, is a type of Pokémon Trainer that first debuted in the Generation II games. They come in two varieties: Middle-aged women with Poké Dolls, and middle-aged men with small children dressed in Pikachu or Pancham outfits. Trainers of this class are members of the Pokémon Fan Club.

In Double Battles, two Poké Fans paired together are called a Poké Fan Family.

They raise many different cute Pokémon, that usually belong to the Fairy Egg Group. The Pokémon of Poké Fans are notable for always holding a Berry or Oran Berry, depending on the game. In Generation V games, they may use Hyper Potions and Full Restores on injured Pokémon during battle.

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

In Danger: High Voltorb of Pokémon Adventures, a group of Poké Fans congregate in the Pokémon Fan Club headquarters to talk about their favorite Pokémon and to read their own magazine.

Later, in Deprogramming Porygon-Z, a female Poké Fan entered the Battle Castle with her Bonsly.


Here is a listing of the Poké Fan's Pokémon in the Platinum chapter:

Pokéfan's Bonsly
Bonsly briefly appeared with its Trainer when they were going to the Battle Castle.

None of Bonsly's moves are known.

Debut Deprogramming Porygon-Z


  • In all of the games, the species of the dolls accompanying the female Poké Fan sprite shown changes (progressing with Clefairy, Wailmer, Bonsly, Sewaddle, and Flabébé, Banette, Skitty, and Pancham), but until Pokémon X and Y, the male Poké Fan sprite has always been shown holding a child in a Pikachu or Pichu costume, as well as the Pokémon's icon imprinted onto their T-shirts.
  • Because the female Poké Fan sprite remains the same between Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum and HeartGold and SoulSilver, they are shown to have Bonsly dolls in a region where Sudowoodo appears only once (and is apparently not well-known) and where Bonsly does not appear in the regional Pokédex.
