Eggman Robotnik (エッグマン・ロボトニック, Egguman Robotonikku) or Dr. Eggman (ドクター・エッグマン, Dokutā Egguman) serves as one of the main antagonists in the Sonic Pokémon series. He is a scientist with an IQ of 300. Eggman has a bent dream on world domination. He is aided in his schemes by his two sidekick robots, Decoe and Bocoe, as well as his messenger Bokkun and a horde of E-Series robots. Eggman's constant plots to create his Empire are endlessly thwarted by Sonic the Hedgehog, his arch-enemy, Ash Ketchum, and their friends. His counterpart is King Shahryār.
Eggman is bald man with red-brown mustache, and wears a pair of white gloves. When he was younger, he wore with a black pants/shoes suit, a red shirt with two downward yellow triangles on it (sometimes called a collar or redesigned as part of a cape), and of course, dark blue, clip-on-to-nose, one-way sunglasses. When he got older, he wears black trousers, black and gray shoes with a gray zipper, red jacket with four White and yellow sort of decorations with a gray zipper, white gloves, dark blue pince-nez sunglasses, goggles with small green lens. While he wears his sunglasses, his eyes was rarely have been seen. His height is 185 cm. (6 ft. 1 in.), weight is 128 kg. (282 lbs.)
He is a short-tempered, loud, pompous and cruel evil genius who is constantly planning to take over the world. However, his plans have always failed thanks to Sonic and his allies. Despite his intelligence, Dr. Eggman is horribly immature, throwing temper tantrums when Sonic throws the proverbial wrench into his plans, and, at times, seems to overlook crucial details in his plans, such as when he orders his robots to fire on Sonic while he is escaping with Princess Elise, failing to realize that they could possibly injure or kill Elise if they land a direct hit on Sonic.
He has built immense warships, such as the Death Egg and the Egg Carrier, as well as escape units such as the Egg Mobile. In fact, his most famous machine is an Egg Mobile with a wrecking ball attached to the bottom, which (even though it retains its spherical shape), it remodeled to have small red wings. There is also a long spike at the bottom that is surrounded by a circle shaped hole, both were made for unknown reasons although they could be used as how it retains flight as there are no thrusters on the future Egg Mobile. Missiles are located in the body of the craft istead of being released by accessories. His plans to create the ultimate utopia, the Eggman Empire, are always in full swing, and he doesn't care where to start it -- in the end, he plans for it to encompass all of the world. His abominable laughter and maniacal declarations contrast his self-professed softer side as a romanticist, feminist, and gentleman. Despite his and Sonic's constant feud, he has secretly developed a begrudging respect for the hedgehog. Although Eggman is a villain, he helps Sonic and co. when the world is at stake, not wanting to think what would happen to the world.
However, despite his desire for world domination and having a few evil moments in the series, Eggman is considerably more lucid ,overall sympathetic, and does have a human side. Clearly not having problems with kidnapping and threatening to inflict harm, he does, however, he does not appreciate senseless destruction and killing, believes it to go too far by actually hurting his hostages, and dislikes to harm humans and animals and Pokémon alike; for example, when the Metal Heads begin to beat up a captive Chris and Cosmo, Eggman criticized them for their malicious behavior towards the two, remarking that "It's one thing to take them prisoner and threaten them, but when you actually hurt somebody, that's going too far!" Earlier in the series, when the malfunctioning Eggsterminator was brutally beating Sonic, Eggman could not bear to watch and even ordered the robot to stop and give Sonic a break. In contrast, he seems more flamboyant, as he is frequently seen showing off. He also appears to be a fan of baseball, where he makes the main characters play a baseball game against him and his team for a Chaos Emerald.

Abilities and PowersEdit
ggman's most well known ability is his masterminded plots and schemes which only fail due to Sonic and his friends. He is a remarkable scientist and engineer, as evidenced by the numerous armies of robots and other mechanical inventions he has created. Eggman is an incredibly skilled pilot: able to swoop missiles and lasers in his Egg Mobile with skills rivaled only by Eggman Nega and Tails. Eggman commands the Egg Fleet, the Armada of Flying Battleships.
Eggman has considerable physical strength as seen in Sonic Lost World where he was able to shatter a large wall of ice with his bare hands, and in Sonic Riders, Eggman is classified as a Power Type, further implying a high level of strength for Eggman. As seen in some games' endings he is also quite resistant to damage, being catapulted or falling vast distances only to come out scratched up but mostly unharmed. Despite his physical structure, Eggman is also very athletic; this is seen in many of the 16-bit era games, where there is almost always a point where Sonic chases him and despite of his weight and Sonic's speed, he always manages to outrun his nemesis long enough to reach his next escape vehicle or weapon. In one cutscene of Sonic Lost World, Eggman is seen to be running at the same speed as Sonic.
As a child, Eggman looked up to his grandfather and idol, Gerald Robotnik, who was renowned as one of the greatest scientific geniuses of all time. He believed him to be a great man who had done his best to help mankind. Thus the doctor decided to follow in his grandfather's footsteps and became a scientist, as well as pursue a teaching degree (apparently because he liked telling people what to do). However, he became obsessed with the idea of an entire world under his rule, and using his unmatched genius, began his plans.
At some point after setting out on his quest for global domination, Dr. Robotnik met Sonic the Hedgehog. While the nature of their meeting is unknown, the two of them eventually became rivals, with Sonic proving to be Dr. Robotnik's greatest enemy. After their meeting, Dr. Robotnik made several attempts to conquer the world, but at every turn, his plans were laid to waste by Sonic.
After encountering Ash Ketchum and witnessing him and Sonic defeat the Team Rocket trio in the second episode of the series, Eggman saw Ash as another great adversary and rival. From there on out, whenever Eggman hatches a scheme, Sonic or Ash or the both of them intervene and foil it, though there are times when he join forces with his adversaries to take down a much more dangerous threat.
