A Poké Maniac or PokéManiac (Japanese: かいじゅうマニア Monster Maniac) is a type of Pokémon Trainer that first debuted in the Generation I games. They were originally presented as strange boys with long hair who wear trenchcoats. In Generation III, they were changed so that they became cosplayers dressing up in beast-like costumes.

They tend to use Pokémon in the Monster Egg Group—such as Lairon, Lickitung and Charmander.

Notable Poké Maniacs

Bill and his father are commonly referred to as Poké Maniacs.

In Gold, Silver, Crystal, HeartGold, and SoulSilver, Kirk (known as Mania in Generation II), a Poké Maniac from Cianwood City, is well known for his arrogance. Hearing of this, Silver stole one of his two Pokémon, a Sneasel. Kirk begs the player to take Shuckie, his Shuckle, for safekeeping. Depending on how well Shuckie is treated, Kirk may or may not ask for Shuckie to be given back.
