Professor Sada is a character appearing in Pokémon Scarlet, who is also one of the Professors in the game, alongside Professor Turo in Pokémon Violet. She is a Professor who researches the lore of Paldea, and also the primary professor of Naranja Academy.


Professor Sada is a slender young woman of average height. She wears a two piece orange-colored crop top and shorts, orange furry stockings, brown sandals, and a white lab coat with light pink fur trimming. Sada also has orange nail polish, two hair pieces, a necklace, orange and diamond-shaped earrings, and a belly chain around her shorts. Sada also has fangs when she opens her mouth.


Sada had an immense fascination with history of the past and its Pokémon, so much so that she invented a time machine to make contact with the ancient past. She is a highly skilled inventor, with her time machine and robotic counterpart being prime examples. The robotic counterpart is far more advanced than any AI in the game, having retained her personality, memories and also has the ability to experience feelings and computing data.

Sada also had a strong desire to protect the time machine she created, taking great measures to keep it safe by installing numerous security systems to the point that her AI counterpart believed that it was all she cared about. However, the AI also remarks that she truly loved her son, another evidence of her love for Arven is the photo of Arven as a toddler and Mabosstiff as a Maschiff together that she has in her lab.


At one point, it is presumed Sada married Professor Turo and had a son with him, naming him Arven. As the years progressed, Turo eventually left her, making her more focused on her research and thus having a strained relationship with Arven. She eventually created an artificial intelligence that was identical to her in appearance, and the AI helped her invent a time machine in order to make contact with the past. Discovering living beings couldn't travel through it, Professor Sada instead sent Poké Balls through the time machine that catch Pokémon from the past and bring them to the present, with the first of these Pokémon being Koraidon.

After catching these ancient Pokémon, they were dubbed "Paradox Pokémon" and Sada conducted research on them in hopes that they can one day coexist with modern Pokémon, though after they were proved too dangerous to Paldea, the Pokémon were locked in Area Zero. During this time, she also discovered how to bring the Terastal phenomenon outside the crater in the form of Tera Orbs and invented a Pokémon ID locking system and the Paradise Protection Protocol to further defend her time machine.

Sada then recovered a second Koraidon, who was more aggressive in nature than the first one. Tragically, after it went rampant in her lab and tried to attack the first Koraidon, she threw herself in front of the latter to protect it, injuring her so severely that she passed away. After her sacrifice, AI Sada had took care of her lab in her place until meeting the player character, not revealing the fate of the original Sada to anyone, including Arven.

Pokémon Scarlet[]

Afterwards, AI Sada managed to meet the protagonist, who would only meet them in the research stations around Area Zero. During this time, AI Sada learned that the past Pokémon were escaping from Area Zero and that they would cause havoc in Paldea if left unchecked, and thus resolved to shut the machine off for good. When the protagonist arrived, they used the Scarlet Book that Arven had given them, although AI Sada warned them that she would end up fighting them should they attempt it.

Once the book was placed, AI Sada battled the protagonist and was defeated. However, a second failsafe mechanism took place that activated the Paradise Protection Protocol, calling the other Koraidon to eliminate the intruders. The protagonist's Koraidon was able to activate its Battle Form and defeated it after a long battle, returning AI Sada to her original programming. The AI then decided to head into the past, both to ensure the machine would not cause any further harm to the present to also experience an adventure, taking the Scarlet book with her.

Pokémon Scarlet: The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero (The Indigo Disk)[]

Upon the player returning to the Crystal Pool, after obtaining Briar's Book and Terapagos, Sada will appear from the mist, who will offer to trade his book for Briar's, which cannot be denied. After this, she will be sent back to her own timeline. Based on her notes found in the Area Zero Underdepths, this is implied to have created a bootstrap paradox, as Sada calls Koraidon its original name Winged King and remarks about meeting a child (the player) in the eastern lands who gave her a book.
