A School Kid (Japanese: じゅくがえり Coming Home from Cram School) is a type of Pokémon Trainer that first debuted in the Generation II games as Schoolboys. In Generation III, female variations started to appear and the class gained a gender neutral name. They are presented as young children carrying school bags.

Max of the anime is very similar to the male School Kids who appear in Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire. He may have been based upon them. They raise a variety of Pokémon, but they are usually unevolved.

In Generation VI, older versions of School Kids appear as the Schoolboy and Schoolgirl classes.

A School Kid in Pokémon Ruby-Sapphire

In the Pokémon Pocket Monsters manga

A School Kid named (Japanese: てつやちゃん Tetsuya-chan) appeared in Pokémon Friendship Story where he is trying to get his Volbeat's tail to light up.


Tetsuya's Volbeat
Tetsuya's Volbeat was very shy towards newcomers and would usually hide inside the playground. Due to his shyness, his tail could not light up. However, after Tetsuya who took care of him started drowning, Volbeat managed to get his tail lit in order for Tetsuya to be saved. Afterwards, Volbeat invited his own kind over.

None of Volbeat's moves are known.
