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 used 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.

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

A Poké Kid makes a cameo while the main characters visit Veilstone City. She first appears in Magnificent Meditite & Really Riolu I. Her friend was supposed to challenge Maylene but she mixed the Poké Kid and her 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. She, together with her friends, is seen entering the Battle Frontier in VS Porygon-Z.

Trivia

  • 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.
