A Tuber (Japanese: うきわボーイ Inner Tube Boy and うきわガール Inner Tube Girl) is a type of Pokémon Trainer that first debuted in the Generation III games. They are young children in inner tubes that are learning to swim. They come in male and female versions. They appear to be younger versions of Swimmers. The payout for defeating them is generally low.

When male Tubers are paired with female Swimmers in Double Battles, they are called Sis and Bros.

They generally use a combination of Water-type and Normal-type Pokémon—particularly Marill, Zigzagoon, and their related forms.

A Tuber in Pokémon Adventures

A Tuber makes a cameo while the main characters visit Veilstone City. He first appears in Magnificent Meditite & Really Riolu I. He was supposed to challenge Maylene but she mixed the Tuber and his friends with the three main characters, due to the main characters possessing an item that made landing attacks easier she had heard the kids talking about.

Trivia

  • In FireRed and LeafGreen, there are no male Tubers, and the male version of the Trainer class is not even programmed into the games, despite there being a Sis and Bro (which is comprised of a female Swimmer and male Tuber). It is possible that a true male Tuber class would have used different colors, as the male Tuber in Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald uses a different color palette than the female Swimmer, requiring them to be changed for the Sis and Bro class.
