A Lass (Japanese: ミニスカート Miniskirt) is a type of Pokémon Trainer that debuted in the Generation I games. They are depicted as average young girls in clothing resembling school uniforms. Lasses appear to be the female counterparts of Youngsters, and they grow up to be Beauties.[1]

They use a variety of Pokémon but tend to use cuter and/or common Pokémon such as Pidgey, Nidoran♀, Zigzagoon, etc. In the Battle Maison of Generation VI, they specialize in Normal- and Fairy-type Pokémon. In the Battle Tower in Generation VIII, they specialize in Grass- and Fairy-type Pokémon.

In Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!, Lasses will award three Poké Balls along with prize money upon being defeated, except Gym Trainers and Master Trainers.

Giselle, a Lass in the anime

Main series

A Lass briefly appeared in the theme song Aim to Be a Pokémon Master and its English counterpart Pokémon Theme. She wears an orange blouse with a red ribbon and a green miniskirt, and Pikachu runs under her.

The character of Giselle, who appeared in The School of Hard Knocks, seems to be loosely based on the Lass design.

In Getting Down to The Ire!, a Lass observed the Manalo Conference alongside a Youngster and a Roggenrola.

Pokémon Origins

A Lass briefly appeared in File 1: Red, being one of the Trainers residing at the Pewter Gym. Later, in File 3: Giovanni, Red was briefly seen battling another Lass with his Charmeleon.


Lass's Wigglytuff
Wigglytuff was used by the Lass whom Red battled his Charmeleon.

None of Wigglytuff's moves are known.

Debut File 3: Giovanni

Pokémon Masters Animated Trailer

A Lass appeared in the Pokémon Masters Animated Trailer, where she, Erika, and a Beauty battled Scottie, Brock, and Rosa in a forest. Her group initially had the upper hand until Scottie's Pikachu used Thunder on their Pokémon, defeating them.

In the Japanese credits of the short, the Lass is credited as ミニスカートの女 (Minskirt Girl) rather than simply ミニスカート (Miniskirt).


Lass's Whimsicott
Whimsicott is the Lass's only known Pokémon. Alongside Erika's Vileplume and a Beauty's Lotad, it battled Scottie's Pikachu, Brock's Onix, and Rosa's Snivy. It used Leech Seed on Onix, ensnaring it, but Snivy managed to free Onix with Leaf Storm. Whimsicott and its teammates were then defeated by Pikachu's Thunder.

Whimsicott's only known move is Leech Seed.
