The Tower Tycoon Palmer (Japanese: タワータイクーン クロツグ Tower Tycoon Kurotsugu) is the leader of the Battle Tower in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl. He is Pearl's father. He is very similar to his son in look and character, as he's always in a rush. He is probably a good friend of the unknown father of the player character. Just like the player and his rival did, he also got to a lake with the player's father and was also attacked by wild Pokémon.

"Hi! My name’s Palmer. I remember you from when you were in Twinleaf, <name>. You were always playing with my son <name>, right? You’ve grown up since then, and most impressively, too! So, I’d like you to show me. Show me the bond you’ve built with your Pokémon. Show me the skill you’ve acquired as a Trainer!"

"Losing to an outstanding Trainer like you… I can live with that."

"Bravo! One day, I imagine my son will come challenge me just as you have. That’s something I look forward to a great deal. You will become even more skilled the very same way your father did. Keep battling Trainers from around the world and keep growing greater in stature!"

"So, you've come this so far! As the Tower Tycoon, I'll have to give you my best effort. That's how the best Trainers show respect to each other. By Battling all out as dedicated students of Pokémon!"

"Losing to an outstanding Trainer like you… I can live with that.”

"Bravo! I feel inspired in my heart! It brings back a memory of that day long ago… I went out to the lake with your father that day… We were attacked by a wild Pokémon. We fended it off, but I don't recall how. It was that desperate. That was my first step as a trainer. I wonder if the professor is doing well? …That's enough reminiscing. My young friend, the world and your future hold infinite promise. Go on, you can be all that you desire! There is no limit to where you can go!"
