    A researcher can be another name for proffesor. All we know of him we get from judging from his looks...he could be a nice proffesor, or an evil guy, or both (minus the nice part)...

    Not necessarily, since I'm sure all researchers in B/W weren't professors :( Don't really think he'd be the regional professor, though. I'm sure there's someone else we'll be going to for that anyway since he doesn't seem helpful.

    Him not seeming helpful could be a good ploy for them to approach the game! They never did something like this before, they almost did in R/B before releasing it judging from the unused Professor Oak battle data but that was much more tame. It would be cool if he actually is the regional professor this time.

    I see your points as to why he doesn't feel like he would be. But the only researcher this personalized (that's not a regional professor) of recent memory would be Fennel, and somehow Akuroma doesn't strike me as the Fennel-type recurring character. Not that he should.

      Tbh, Fennel really only was important at the beginning of the game, so I'm not sure that's a good comparison. But he doesn't strike me as that type either.

      I guess. I only had a few examples to choose from as for researchers that aren't professors. Most that are in-game are not personalized at all, bearing one lab coat wearing sprite like those aides the regional professor has, very much unlike Fennel and Akuroma. The latter even shows up in the introduction, so that shows his large role I guess. In fact, wouldn't it be weird if the game had two researchers and the regional professor turns out to be the less important character between the two? Wait, with Oak and Elm, they did that in Gen II.

      Akuroma seems far too important to be just a researcher. Though maybe he's attempting to be the regional professor? Or a replacement for Juniper just for some time?

        I think that if he doesn't turn out to be an evil genius, he'll end up serving the same purpose as Professor Oak did in Jhoto. Hopefully he plays a larger role that that though, because he has an interesting design and a mischevious look to him, so I hope he turns out to be evil.

        Okay we know for sure that Akuroma won't be handing us our starters. And so far with the news we've gotten, it doesn't look like he'll be the region's Professor either.

        Hmm.

        Definitely leaning towards him being the new leader of Plasma then. While something on the side would be great, since he doesn't have a "good" role, all that's left to assume is they'll go with the obvious and make him Plasma's leader.

          Watch he'll become a "Scott" or "Looker" role. One speculated to have great purpose, but really he doesn't even need to exist.

          Maybe he set up the World Championship to test all the trainers around the world. I mean they do show him coming to meet the new PC on a stage that looked like it could be some major event. Maybe it was the World Tournament's Champions Platform and Akuroma was awarding him the trophy.

          He is studying Pokemon's Strengths. Seems like the best way to show a Pokemon's strength by pitting them against the world's greatest trainers.

            ^ I agree, his presence in the tournament makes me feel that he's out to look for strong trainers much like Scott himself was, perhaps they have a connection, both being people who look for strong trainers.

            Maybe he's hosting the world tournament because he wants to see what trainers he could potentially recruit. Why have someone in an introduction that hosts what we think is most likely just a post-game thing? >))>

            I haven't seen anything that would even remotely suggest that Akuroma would play a "Professor" role. Misinterpreted word of mouth passes quickly in the fanbase, though, so I guess I can't be surprised.

            A lot of things suggest that his influence in the game isn't a nice one.

              In all the pics I've seen him in he's smiling so I can't really picture him as a bad guy lol but I must say your reasons are very well thought out

                He's certainly not the regional professor seeing as Juniper is still in operation. Bianca helps her give the protagonists their starters.

                  That and the fact that Akuroma isn't a Professor to begin with. Akuroma is a Researcher.

                    I think akuroma would pull a "Charon" on all of us but he would also help the trainer out

                    Example: Akuroma without the protags knowledge would be the top researcher of team ??? Like charon But he would aid the trainer in various ways

                    The reason i see him helping the trainer is because in a world tornament screenshot you see him on stage with the protag

                    Edit: also what if he pulls a "cynthia" helping the player but ending up being a champion

                    The Aquarius loves a party. Anytime, anywhere is their motto. It is not unlikely that an Aquarius will consider a wake a good place to meet chicks. Aquarians love to be naked. It is even better if they are naked and crocked. Froot Loops is a very Aquarian cereal. So is Rice Krispies, since it will engage in a friendly chat with the Aquarian as he or she is eating breakfast. Count Chocula is off-limits, however. It belongs to the Scorpios. Aquarians use the phrase "Dude, man..." frequently when describing philosophical concepts. Aquarians have out-of-body experiences on a daily basis. If you are talking to an Aquarian and he or she zones out, consider the conversation hopeless. He or she is talking to the guy three feet away from you. Aquarians are fun because they channel people. Plus, if you tell them to, they will run around naked. Aquarians like astronomy because they've been to all those places. If you want to know what the food is like on Saturn, ask an Aquarius. Aquarians can allow themselves every possible vice on the planet, and don't think twice about it. That is why they piss everyone else off. They are cosmically entitled to do this.

                        But wait....

                        If he appears in the world tornament(which is most likely post-game) that means he will not play an evil character because by the time you apprehend team ??? he would have disappeared.

                        If he works for team ??? why would he return to the world tornament if we apprehended him?

                          His name strongly indicates that he's either with Plasma or a solo villain.

                            there are rumors going around that he invented the World Tournament (which is highly possible)

                            some say that he is the new leader of team plasma/ "Neo" Team Plasma

                            but the question stands... who is Akuroma?

                            lets theorize!

                              We know he is a Researcher that does not agree with Team Plasma's ideals that Pokemon should be separated from Humans for them to reach their highest potential.

                              Other than that, nothing else has been said.

                                He also Researches Pokemon Strength, so interestingly enough, him and team plasmas ideals can coincide good with each other.

                                maybe he plays a role like Scott in RSE and invites you to this world tournament.

                                another thing that is possible is he could be a spy and lead the team plasma dressed in the old uniforms? farfetched but possible

                                We've already got a thread about Akuroma here. Let's keep everything in there. :)

                                  so we all agree he maybe affiliated with the World Tournament, but his name still basically means Evil, so i think there's something deeper here.
