A Super Nerd (Japanese: りかけいのおとこ Science Man) is a type of Pokémon Trainer that first debuted in the Generation I games. They are generally depicted as skinny teenage boys, with long hair and glasses. In HeartGold and SoulSilver, they are accompanied by a remote-controlled robotic Pikachu holding a Poké Ball. The HeartGold and SoulSilver version of the Super Nerd class also resembles a skinnier version of Generation IV's Collectors.

They are very similar to Scientists.

They generally use a combination of Poison-, Electric-, and Fire-type Pokémon.

Conway

Conway, a recurring character, who was Dawn's tag team partner, seems to be based on the Super Nerd class. He first appeared in Tag! We're It!. Later, he appeared in the summer arc special from Camping It Up! through One Team, Two Team, Red Team, Blue Team!. He became Ash's official rival during the Lily of the Valley Conference in the episodes An Old Family Blend through Working on a Right Move! where he lost to Ash. Unlike the Super Nerds in the games, he is not known to own any Poison, Electric or Fire-type Pokémon, however, he did train a Venonat during the Pokémon Summer Academy.

A Super Nerd in Pokémon Origins.

In Pokémon Origins

A Super Nerd appeared briefly in the Pokémon Origins episode File 2 - Cubone. He was shown hogging two fossils when Red was at Mt. Moon. Red battled him off-screen, after which he presumably gave Red one of his fossils.

Miles in the second chapter

Miles (Japanese: アキヒト Akihito), known as William in Chuang Yi's translations, a minor recurring character in the Pokémon Adventures manga, belongs to the Super Nerd class. He first appears in Whacked by Marowak! where he is disguised as Red, punches Erika and reveals himself before taking away Pika. He uses a coat of rubbery stocking to shield himself from the Pikachu's attacks, as well as Marowak, Paras, and Persian to escape from and confound the citizens of Celadon City. He is later defeated in Paras Sight by Misty, Brock, Erika, and Blaine, and Yellow gets Pika back from him. In As Gastly as Before, he is taken away by a Gastly and it is revealed (after Blue saves him) that he was hired by Agatha of the Elite Four. Weeks later, in Take a Chance on Chansey, Miles wakes up at Cinnabar Gym, where Camper Evan is taking care of him while Blaine is absent. He then tells Evan that he was the first to find Red frozen on Mt. Moon, and it was here that he found bits of Red's clothing that contained his scent to fool Pika.

In Oh, It's Ho-Oh!, Miles and his Persian and Evan and his Haunter are seen having a quick battle with Evan emerging as the victor. They are revealed to be taking part in the next Pokémon Tournament and because they do not have Gym Badges, they have to take part in the preliminary tournament. However, because of the attack caused by the Masked Man, the Pokémon League tournament was cancelled and they never got a chance to compete.

He and Evan also made a cameo appearance in Last Shot, visiting Blaine for a while.
