An Engineer (Japanese: でんきやのオヤジ Old Electrician) is a type of Pokémon Trainer that first debuted in the Generation I games. They are generally depicted as men with hardhats, toolbelts, and toolboxes.

They specialize in Electric-type Pokémon. There are three in the game, and are all in Vermilion City and Route 11.

The Worker class in Generation IV is similar, but its members generally use different Pokémon.
