Professor Rowan (Japanese: ナナカマド博士 Dr. Nanakamado) is the resident Pokémon Professor of Sandgem Town in the Sinnoh region. He specializes in Pokémon evolution.

History

Professor Rowan works in Sandgem Town; living with his grandson Lucas. When he was still a young Professor, he left the Sinnoh region to study the Pokémon of Kanto with Professor Oak, after reaching the conclusion that Sinnoh holds far greater secrets. He has a stern personality that makes him seem intimidating and mean, but he is actually very kind and patient. Rowan says he still feels a thrill whenever he travels anywhere with his Pokémon. He apparently has a sweet tooth, as the refrigerator in his laboratory is full of nothing but sweets and candy.

Rowan's particular field of study is Pokémon evolution, having discovered that 90% of all Pokémon are connected in some way to others through evolution. He is also interested in determining if evolution is supposed to be a form of Pokémon reaching maturity, or a way for an "incomplete" being to become "more complete," and the implications that the process has on legendary Pokémon, which don't evolve.

The Alexis Saga

Rowan's first and only appearance in the series thus far was in On the Road Again! when he gave Lexi her Starter Pokémon Piplup. He has not been seen since but mentioned by Lexi several times.
