A Police Officer (Japanese: おまわりさん Police Officer), known as an Officer in Generation II and a Policeman in Generations IV and V, is a type of Pokémon Trainer that first debuted in the Generation II games. They are police officers, with flashlights and baton, that only battle at night in Generations II and IV. It could be said that their counterpart is the Joggers, who can only be battled in the morning.

They specialize in using Growlithe in Generation II, its remakes, and Sun and Moon, a possible reference to the anime's Officer Jenny. In Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum, they use a combination of the Hoothoot and Machop families. In Generations V and VII, they tend to use Pokémon with canine traits, including the aforementioned Growlithe; possibly an allusion to police dogs. In the Battle Subway, they specialize in defensive Pokémon sets primarily relying on status conditions, and in the early stages, Fighting- and Steel-type Pokémon.

Although they weren't Trainers, they also appeared as guards to Saffron City and tried to arrest a Team Rocket Grunt in Vermilion City in Pokémon Red and Blue (replaced by Officer Jenny in Pokémon Yellow), and their remakes Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen. Another NPC by the name of Officer Johnson played a minor role in guarding the Cipher members that Duking arrested in Pokémon Colosseum.
