From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Professor Cozmo (Japanese: ソライシ博士 Dr. Soraishi) is a character in Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald. He is a meteoriticist who lives in Fallarbor Town, Hoenn.
In the games
Professor Cozmo leaves either with Team MagmaRE or Team AquaS 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 leader, the player can take the Meteorite from the machine and return it to the Professor in exchange for TM27 (Return).
- "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?"
Professor Cozmo's house
- "Oh… I never should have left myself be conned into telling Team Magma 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 Magma took from Meteor Falls? Please, may I have it? 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!"
- No: Oh, but… I'm crushed with disappointment…"
- "Oh, I can't believe it. This is really, really great! This is really going to help my research!"
In the anime
In Fight for the Meteorite!, Professor Cozmo meets Ash Ketchum on Mt. Chimney. The situation from there is similar to how it is in the games.
In the 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 meteor and their device on Mt. Chimney.
He's apparently good friends with Roxanne, and was once her teacher.
