Raifort (Japanese: レホール Raifort) is a character in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. She serves as the history teacher of Naranja AcademyS/Uva AcademyV.

In the core series games

Raifort’s classes focus on the history of Area Zero and the Paldean Empire. She is so disinterested in the present that she does not even seem to care about recent history. After addressing the Four Treasures of Ruin in class, she invites students to speak with her more about them afterward. If the player talks to her, she will explain how they were sealed away and mark their locations on the player’s map, asking the player to update her if they find anything.

Raifort also participates in the Academy Ace Tournament.

Staff Room

"Taking time out of your day to attempt to converse with me? You must be absolutely mad."

History (1)
"Oho... I see we have some new students here with us today."
"My name is Raifort. I will be the one to impart knowledge of the past to your little minds."
"History is a wonderful thing. Truly splendid. The lives of our ancestors throughout history forged the path to the present in which we live!"
"Today, you shall learn about the most mysterious location in all of Paldea—the Great Crater."
"As you are all aware, a massive crater known as the Great Crater of Paldea exists in the heart of our region."
"The area inside this crater is called Area Zero, and research of its geological strata and material composition has shown that the crater is in fact over one million years old."
"It was long believed that a certain something rested at the bottom of this mysterious crater."
"Aha. Perfect timing to make eye contact, young <player>. Answer me this..."
"What exactly was believed to rest in the depths of the Great Crater—inside Area Zero?"
Treasure: "Heh. That is correct! You are a surprisingly clever one, aren’t you? I see you did your homework prior to coming to my class."
A Snorlax: "Incorrect! An adorable answer, to be sure, but were you perhaps fooled by my use of “rest”? The correct answer is treasure."
A Pokémon Center: "Incorrect! An interesting answer, to be sure, but that would be quite the anachronistic artifact. The correct answer is treasure."
"That’s right! Some believed that a treasure more valuable than anything else in this world rested in the depths of the Great Crater!"
"So much for dreams of treasure hunting, though, as a lab has been built in those very same depths."
"Oh, and before I forget—you would all do well to remember that the Great Crater and Area Zero are both off-limits to all but those who have official business there."
"Do not dare entertain the foolish notion of gallivanting off to Area Zero in search of riches. It is no place for children dreaming of treasure and adventure!"
"Besides, if it were at all possible to investigate the area, I would surely be the first to do so!"
"Oho, is that the time already? I must’ve gotten swept up in filling your minds with knowledge."
"This ends today’s lesson. We will unravel more of history’s enigmas together next time."
History (2)
"Greetings, my little students. Whatever you did yesterday, it is now a part of history."
"Today, we will continue to unravel the marvels that history has presented to us."
"About two thousand years ago, this region came under the rule of the Paldean Empire."
"Historical accounts describe the Paldean emperor as being quite the dictator."
"This emperor also zealously believed the legend of the treasure that rests deep within Area Zero."
"I must mention that the civilizations of our ancestors were not as developed as ours is today."
"People back then were far more likely to believe in mysterious legends, magic, and beings beyond human comprehension."
"In an attempt to gain the power to stand against Paldea’s neighboring countries, the emperor sent people in droves to join the hunt for the fabled treasure of Area Zero."
"Aha. Perfect timing to make eye contact, young <player>. Answer me this..."
"Approximately how many years ago was it that the Paldean Empire began to rule this region?"
About one thousand years ago: "Incorrect! You’re off by an entire millennium! Why, one thousand years ago, the Paldean Empire had already begun to collapse!"
About two thousand years ago: "Heh. That is correct! You are a surprisingly clever one, aren’t you? I see you’re listening intently to my lecture."
About three thousand years ago: "Incorrect! You’re off by an entire millennium! Why, three thousand years ago, the Paldean Empire didn’t even exist yet!"
"The answer is about two thousand years ago. That is when the Great Era of Exploration began."
"However, it is said that not a single adventurer sent out by the emperor ever reached the depths of Area Zero."
"Was it the punishing journey itself that barred their way? Or perhaps some unknown creature?"
"The resounding failure of this “Great” Era of Exploration almost certainly heightened the air of mystery surrounding the crater."
"Oh, what I wouldn’t give to explore Area Zero in its untouched state at that time!"
"I suppose I can only hope for the swift invention of a time machine."
"Oho, is that the time already? I must’ve gotten swept up in filling your minds with knowledge."
"This ends today’s lesson. We will unravel more of history’s enigmas together next time."'
History (3)
"Greetings, my little students. Whatever you did yesterday, it is now a part of history."
"Today, we will continue to unravel the marvels that history has presented to us."
"As you should remember from our last class, Area Zero’s Great Era of Exploration began about two thousand years ago."
"This era lasted for approximately one thousand years, but not a single soul was able to venture all the way to the deepest reaches of Area Zero."
"Having poured much of its human and financial resources into the exploration of Area Zero for so long, the Paldean Empire fell into decline."
"Two hundred years later—or eight hundred years ago—the empire and its surrounding nations united into one entity. This was the formation of Paldea as we know it today."
"Ah yes, this very academy where you’re now filling your young minds with knowledge was also apparently established at that time."
"In fact, this school building—though certainly having undergone repairs through the years—is just as it was when it was built so long ago."
"This very structure is a piece of history! Ahh! Things of old are truly splendid!"
"I would certainly prefer it not to have the Poké Ball portion, though—a relatively new addition."
"Aha. Perfect timing to make eye contact, young <player>."
"Let’s see if you’ve been listening to my lecture. Tell me—approximately how many years ago was this academy of ours established?"
About six hundred years ago: "Incorrect! You are missing two hundred years of splendid history!"
About seven hundred years ago "Incorrect! You are missing one hundred years of splendid history!"
About eight hundred years ago "Correct! I see the look of concentration on your face was indeed just that. I hate nothing more than when a student only pretends to listen."
"This academy was constructed exactly 805 years ago, to be precise. In other words, your academy here is 805 years old!"
"At the time, it offered state-of-the-art facilities and a uniquely innovative curriculum. As such, people used to say..."
"“Those seeking knowledge need look no further than the orangesS/grapesV of Paldea.” That’s right—they were referring to NaranjaS/UvaV Academy!"
"It is said that this proverb of sorts was even used outside of the Paldea region."
"Oho, is that the time already? I must’ve gotten swept up in filling your minds with knowledge."
"This ends today’s lesson. Our next class will be our midterm exam. Bring the wonders of history to the forefront of your minds in preparation."
Academy Ace Tournament
"Hello, my little student. I look forward to deciphering the secret to your skill."
"How about taking a page from the history books and allowing me to pull victory from defeat?"
"It’s time to use the technology born of the Great Crater! Primeval power, spill forth!"
"Shall I add this defeat to the pages of the history books?"
"History is written by the victors. Cast aside the vanquished and ascend your rightful throne."
