A Nursery Aide (Japanese: ほいくし Kindergarten Teacher) is a type of Trainer class introduced in Generation V. They are normally found near Preschoolers. They could be considered a different version of the Teacher Trainer class. Some will give out Rare Candies when defeated. They normally use a variety of different Pokémon. In the Battle Subway, they specialize in Eeveelutions, and in the early stages, either Dragon-type Pokémon or the final evolutions of starter Pokémon.

In the anime

Daniela, a character of the day in Here Comes the Trubbish Squad!, is based on this Trainer class, due to the Japanese name of the class. She was shown to run a kindergarten located somewhere between Striaton City and Nacrene City.


  • Nursery Aide June is the first Trainer of a gender-specific class to be the opposite gender. In the Japanese and French versions of Black 2 and White 2, June (named エナツ Enatsu and Mahault, respectively) admits he's a man, but dresses like a woman so he could have his job.
