A Worker (Japanese: はたらくおじさん Working Man in Generation III, さぎょういん Physical Worker in Generation IV onwards) is a type of Pokémon Trainer that debuted in the Generation III games, where they appeared in Pokémon Colosseum and Pokémon XD. They later appeared in Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum. Workers can also appear in Johto's Battle Frontier.

They are generally depicted as young-to-middle-aged men with hardhats and tools. They appear to be similar to the Engineer class, but they use different Pokémon. They use Rock-, Fighting-, Steel-, and Ground-type Pokémon. In the Battle Subway and Battle Maison, they specialize in Pokémon benefiting from sandstorm.

In Black and White, some Workers dress in warmer clothing for colder climates, similar to the Ace Trainers that are on Route 217 and in Snowpoint Gym. They are mainly found in Cold Storage; they still use mainly Fighting-type Pokémon, but several also use Ice-type Pokémon. While the Cold Storage is no longer accessible in Black 2 and White 2, bundled-up Workers can still be found in places such as Twist Mountain. In the Battle Subway, these specialize in Ice-type Pokémon.
