** The character who most closely follows the traditional "evil poacher" mold, even more than Team Rocket, is probably [[KnightOfCerebus Pokemon Hunter J]] from the Diamond and Pearl seasons. She had a device that could [[AndIMustScream turn Pokemon--and people--into living statues]] to sell on the black market, repeatedly tried to ''kill'' Ash, and was the only recurring character in the anime to be KilledOffForReal.

Even Team Rocket [[EvenEvilHasStandards is appalled]] by her methods.

** An easy way to spot a poacher is if he is using any tools beyond a Poké Ball. If he is using a Poké Ball, is it a regular Poké Ball or a modified one that never misses its capture (like Mewtwo's balls (though he wasn't specifically an Evil Poacher) or the Dark Balls used by the Iron Masked Marauder? Are they attempting to capture more than one Pokémon of a certain type at a time, outside of a designated Safari Zone? And most obviously, does the targeted Pokémon clearly belong to someone else?

* ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'' - One of the reasons why the [[TheFederation Time-Space Administration Bureau's]] Frontier Nature Conservation Corps exists is the presence of poachers who disregard the nature protection laws. One of them even tried to put a bullet between the eyes of a 13-year-old officer when she arrived to arrest him in ''Audioplay/StrikerSSoundStageX''.
