Professor Cypress is the Pokémon professor in core series games. Unlike other Pokémon Professors, he is the only Pokémon Professor that is evil and fakes to be good.

Witnessing them giving the player the Bronze Brick necklace after battling Jake, he then orders his thugs to kidnap player's parents shortly after the player goes off on and becomes busy catching Pokémon Route 1. He pretends to be innocent by delivering this bad news to the player when he actually lied and that he did it. Personally and instructing the player to find his "friend" Linda at Cheshma Town, apparently sending the player right into a trap. Linda steals the Bronze Brick from the player and gives it back after that player beats her. He immediately leaves the town, not giving the player a chance to interrogate him on Linda's ambush.
Eventually, he decides to confront the player in Anthian Park. He proceeds on revealing his backstory how he finds human beings often abuse Pokémon to do whatever they want, and how he finds Hoopa to have the power for creating new worlds ideal to him.

And leaves by entering the Team Eclipse plane with his grunts and admins and kidnapping Jake just for hin to betray the player.
Cypress is a man originally with good intentions, but has similar intentions to Galactic Boss Cyrus in the comic Pokémon Diamond, Pearl and Platinum.

He uses Venusaur, Feraligatr, Blaziken, Toterra, Samurott and Delphox.
