A Youngster (Japanese, Generations I–III: たんぱんこぞう Shorts Youngster, IV: たんパンこぞう Shorts Youngster—note the use of katakana) is a type of Pokémon Trainer that first debuted in the Generation I games. They are depicted as average young boys wearing caps, and are obsessed with short pants.

They use a variety of Pokémon, but they tend towards common ones that are caught early in their respective games.

Youngsters appear to be the male counterparts of Lasses.

In Pokémon Stadium, they were referred to as Lads.
