PMDP20 (Pocket Monsters DP)

A Rich Boy (Japanese: おぼっちゃま High-class Child) is a type of Pokémon Trainer that debuted in the Generation III games. They are depicted as boys dressed in elaborate and fancy clothing. Their female counterpart is a Lady.

They generally use weak Pokémon but give out a lot of money as a reward. Many of their Pokémon also carry Nuggets or other valuable items. They use Full Restores when they heal their Pokémon.

In X and Y, Rich Boys appear in the Battle Chateau, where they are classified as another Trainer class. They also appear in the Battle Maison so there are no Rich Boys that can be battled outside of the Battle Maison.

Dol, a Rich Boy

In the Be the Best! Pokémon B+W manga

A Rich Boy by the name of (Japanese: ドル Dol) appears in the Be the Best! Pokémon B+W manga.

Monta meets him on the Battle Subway and asks him for a battle. He sends out his powerful Bouffalant and Swoobat. Monta was no match for him and with some sneaky moves, Dol easily defeated Monta. Several days later Monta asks him for a rematch which he accepts. Thinking the outcome will be the same, Monta edges on but with Monta's new moves and held items, Dol is defeated.

Pokémon

Dol's Bouffalant
Bouffalant
Dol's Bouffalant was first used in a battle alongside Swoobat against Monta's Snivy and Boldore. Snivy hits Bouffalant with a Leaf Tornado. However, Bouffalant did not take any damage due to its Sap Sipper Ability. Bouffalant uses Horn Attack on Snivy fainting it. Bouffalant then hits Boldore with a powerful attack fainting it.

In a rematch against Monta, Bouffalant starts off with an Head Charge, which hits Snivy but is unaffected by Snivy using Protect. It then uses Megahorn on Boldore, in which Boldore retaliates with Bulldoze. It is eventually finished off by Boldore's Stone Edge.

Bouffalant's known moves are Horn Attack, Head Charge and Megahorn, and its Ability is Sap Sipper.

Debut PBW4
Dol's Swoobat
Swoobat
Dol's Swoobat was first used in a battle alongside Bouffalant against Monta's Snivy and Boldore. After Snivy faints, Monta decides for Boldore to use a Rock-type move on Swoobat because it would be super effective, but Swoobat uses Fly to evade it and Bouffalant hits Boldore with a powerful attack knocking it out.

In the rematch against Monta, it uses Fly once again to get out of reach of Boldore but is shot down by Boldore's Smack Down. It goes in for a Heart Stamp which Boldore is able to withstand with its held item. It is then hurt slightly by Boldore's Bulldoze and taken out by Snivy's Slam as Snivy survived Boldore's Bulldoze attack using the Air Balloon.

Swoobat's known moves are Fly and Heart Stamp.
