Professor Elm (Japanese:ウツギ博士 Dr. Utsugi) is the renowned Pokémon professor of Johto. He lives in New Bark Town with his wife and son in a house south of his laboratory (the second floor of his lab in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver). Professor Elm lets you choose a Chikorita, Cyndaquil, or a Totodile as a starter Pokémon. He initially discovered that Pokémon can lay eggs. He is considered the best professor when it comes to researching Pokémon evolution.
In the games[edit | edit source]
He is the Professor of the Johto region, and is described as "a little scatter brained and disorganized" by his wife. In Platinum, a hiker in Hearthome City that in Diamond and Pearl previously gave you an egg containing Happiny, mentions him and Elm being great friends.
