A Pokéfan (Japanese: だいすきクラブ Lovers Club) 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 outfits. Trainers of this class are members of the Pokémon Fan Club.

They raise many different cute Pokémon, that usually belong to the Fairy Egg Group. The Pokémon of Pokéfans 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 Pokéfans congregate in the Pokémon Fan Club headquarters to talk about their favorite Pokémon and to read their own magazine.

Later, in VS Porygon-Z, a female Pokéfan entered the Battle Castle with her Bonsly.


Here is a listing of the Pokéfan'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 VS Porygon-Z


  • In all of the games, the species of the dolls accompanying the female Pokéfan sprite shown changes (progressing with Clefairy, Wailmer, Bonsly, and Sewaddle), but the male Pokéfan 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.
  • In each handheld game where the female Pokéfan is present (excluding HeartGold, SoulSilver, and Generation V), each doll depicted in the sprite has also been made available to the player in some form. However, in Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald, the Wailmer Doll that the player receives is different as it is larger than the player, compared to the miniature Wailmer Dolls that the female Pokéfan has in her possession.
  • Because the female Pokéfan 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.
