The Radio Director (Japanese: きょくちょう director) is the head of the Radio Tower in Goldenrod City. He appears in Pokémon Gold, Silver, Crystal, HeartGold, and SoulSilver.

In the games

A key part of all Johto-based games is Team Rocket's invasion of the Radio Tower. After defeating many Grunts, the player meets up with who is assumed to be the Radio Director. It turns out that this director is merely an impostor: Team Rocket Executive Petrel disguised as the director. Once he has been defeated, Petrel will reveal that the director is in the Goldenrod Tunnel. After rescuing him, the real director will give the Card Key, that will give access to the fifth floor, where Team Rocket's Executives are.

Once Team Rocket has been conclusively defeated and disbanded, the director will express his gratitude by awarding an item. In Pokémon Gold and HeartGold he will give the Rainbow Wing, in Pokémon Silver and SoulSilver he will give the Silver Wing, and in Pokémon Crystal he will give the Clear Bell. The director supposedly found the item given when the tower previously there was knocked down, and they are all used in summoning a legendary Pokémon, specifically the version mascots Ho-Oh, Lugia, and Suicune respectively.

In the manga

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

The director first appears in Smeargle Smudge inviting Gold to participate in a radio show at the Goldenrod Radio Tower. He is later seen with DJ Mary broadcasting events such as Gold's race against Whitney, her visit to Mahogany Gym and the battles between Gym Leaders from Kanto and Johto.

In VS Togepi, while he is broadcasting the Pokéathlon events, Lance's Dragonite suddenly attacks the place and the director ends up on the Pokémon's head, being saved by Gold. The director then takes Gold by car to Ecruteak City, where he wants to meet the Kimono Girls.


Dusknoir appears with the director at the Ecruteak Gym, right after it is destroyed by Arceus.
