Jordan (Japanese: サスケ Sasuke) is a character in Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum. He is one of the judges of the Pokémon Super Contests. His design is based on that of the Rich Boy Trainer class.

In the games

Jordan appears in Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum. After the player has received a Poffin Case from the Chairman of the Hearthome City Pokémon Fan Club, Jordan will give them a level 60 Mild Poffin with 40 smoothness when talked to. It is a unique Poffin that raises all of the five condition stats at once, which is impossible for Poffins that were made by the player.

  • If the player has not received a Poffin Case
"You're going to enter Contests? But I don't see a Poffin Case. It could be tough for you to win Contests without it. But if you're determined to enter, don't let me stop you. It wouldn't hurt to get in some practice at the counter on the right."
  • If the player has received a Poffin Case
"You're going to enter Contests? And, yup, you have a Poffin Case. Let me gift you with this fabulously wonderful Poffin!"
"Feed that Poffin to a Pokémon you're going to enter in Contests. Oh, and a word of advice for you. Go take a run at the Contests! However, the best way to get ready is to get some practice first. You can take practice sessions at the counter on the right."
"Like everything else, the basics are important. It takes practice to win Contests!"
  • If the player's Poffin Case is full
"Oh, no. Your Poffin Case is full. I'll give it to you another time. Oh, and a word of advice. Go take a run at the Contests! ...That isn't much of a strategy. You might want some practice first. You can take practice sessions at the counter on the right."
