A Burglar (Japanese: かじばどろぼう Post-fire Burglar in Generations I and IV, かじばドロボウ Post-fire Burglar in Generation II, どろぼう Burglar in Generation III) is a type of Pokémon Trainer that first debuted in the Generation I games. They are generally depicted as suspicious men sneaking around with sacks thrown over their backs. In Generation I, they are only found in the burned-down Pokémon Mansion and Cinnabar Gym. If defeated, they will sometimes drop an item as they flee. Burglars tend to drop large amounts of money.

They specialize in Fire-type Pokémon. They also use Koffing, which may be used as a quick escape method, similar to that of the anime's original series.
