Kentucky Smith is an archaeologist who resides in the camp at Fuchsia City, along with his assistant. He also appears outside the Mausoleum of Origins, giving the player information about the temple.
His target as an archaeologist is to find out more about the Mausoleum of Origins.
Before you can access the Mausoleum of Origins, you must battle him. His Pokémon include 3 Pokémon only found at the Mausoleum, and the Regi Trio, (Regice, Registeel, and Regirock) which are all level 90+. He says he did this to test your strength, because there is "no one to bail you out".
- He is known to dislike musical notes, as mentioned by an NPC in the Mausoleum.
- He claims that he used to be a gym leader right before he battles you.
