A Backpacker (Japanese: バックパッカー Backpacker) is a type of Trainer class introduced in Generation V. They are young men and women who carry large backpacks with them.

Backpackers use many different types of Pokémon. In Black and White, X, and Y, they will always have just one Pokémon in their party unless they are involved in a Triple Battle, Rotation Battle, the Battle Subway, or the Battle Maison. They often use more than one Pokémon in Black 2 and White 2. Some will give out Max Repels when defeated.

A large number of Backpackers can be found in Nacrene City.
