Professor Juniper (アララギ博士 Dr. Araragi) is the Regional Pokémon Professor for Unova. She is the first female Professor to feature in the main stream games.

Like the other Pokémon Professors in the previous games, she gives the players their Starter Pokémon and the Pokédex.

In The Anime

Professor Juniper

Professor Juniper makes her debut in the episode In the Shadow of Zekrom! where she greets Ash, his mom and Professor Oak and the airport. Professor Juniper introduces Ash to Unova and gives him his new Pokédex. Professor Juniper's Oshawott follows Ash, so she lets Ash keep it.

Professor Juniper also has handed out a Snivy to Trip, a trainer whom likes to snapshot his journey. Trip battled Ash with this Snivy and it defeated Ash's Pikachu. It later went on to evolve into Servine.


  • Despite being the first female Pokémon Professor, she isn't the first to appear in the anime, being beaten by Professor Ivy of the Orange Archipalego by almost 10 years.
