A Dragon Tamer (Japanese: ドラゴンつかい Dragon Tamer) is a type of Pokémon Trainer that first debuted in the Generation III games. They are young men in elaborate purple and red outfits and capes.

They specialize in Dragon-type Pokémon that belong in the Dragon Egg Group.

The goal of most of these Dragon Tamers is to attain the status of their greatest member, Kanto and Johto Pokémon League Champion Lance.

In the Generation II games, they are merely referred to, especially in Blackthorn City due to its Dragon's Den. Although the English versions simply call them "dragon users" in these games, the Japanese versions clearly mention Dragon Tamers (ドラゴンつかい). This explains their appearance in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, their remakes, where these same instances now refer to them as Dragon Tamers in English as well.
