A Poké Kid (Japanese: ポケモンごっこ Make-believe Pokémon) is a type of Pokémon Trainer that first debuted in the Generation IV games. They are little girls that are possibly the children of male Pokéfans who are often depicted holding one in a Pikachu costumes. Outside of battle they appear to be just an ordinary Pikachu; this is abused to mess with the player on multiple occasions, including a Poké Kid hidden amongst several regular Pikachu.

Like their costumes, they use Pikachu as their Pokémon.

Trainer List

Pokémon Diamond/Pearl

Pokémon Platinum


  • In Diamond and Pearl, Poké Kid Ariel can be fought in the Jubilife TV station on Fridays.
  • In Platinum, Ariel can be found in these PokéCenter locations around Sinnoh:
Sunday, Monday, Thursday: Floaroma Town
Tuesday, Friday: Solaceon Town
Wednesday, Saturday: Resort Area
  • Poké Kid Ariel says "Pi-Pikachu!" before battle. Ash's Pikachu says the same after many of Ash's various victories (winning a Badge, catching a Pokémon, and so on).
  • The Poké Kid bears some resemblance to the concept of Moemon, a hacked game where Pokémon are turned into ginjika.
