A Fisherman or FisherStadGSC (Japanese: つりびと Fisherman) is a type of Pokémon Trainer that first debuted in the Generation I games. They are middle-aged men with rods, reels, and fishing gear. There is normally a Poké Ball attached to the end of the line. The class was named Fisher in Pokémon Stadium and Generation II, but otherwise is named Fisherman.

In the Japanese version of Pokémon Gold, Silver, and Crystal, they are depicted smoking, as fishermen smoking is a common stereotype in Japan. The cigarette was removed in international releases.

They specialize in Water-type Pokémon that can be caught via fishing. At least once in every core-series game prior to Generation VII, there is a Fisherman who will fight the player with a full team made up entirely of Magikarp. In Sun and Moon, they keep their Pokémon in Lure Balls.
