Mr. Game is a non-player character in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver. He can first be seen in the Goldenrod Game Corner, and later at the Celadon Game Corner. The first time the player speaks to him, he will give them a Coin Case. Because of a difference between language releases in Generation IV, he appears only in non-Japanese games.

Mr. Game owns the two Game Corners in the Kanto and Johto regions, having taken over the Celadon Game Corner at some point after Team Rocket's defeat in Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen. The games played in this renovated Game Corner (and its counterpart in Goldenrod) are unique to HeartGold and SoulSilver. Voltorb Flip, which was invented by Mr. Game, replaces the slot machines from previous games.

Mr. Game loves watching people play his Coin game, and comments that it is what he lives for. He challenges the player to participate, saying "Make my heart pound with excitement!".
