A Punk Girl (Japanese: バッドガール Bad Girl) is a type of Pokémon Trainer introduced in Generation VI. They are depicted as young, reckless women in punk rock attire. Punk Girls generally specialize in Poison- and Dark-type Pokémon.

In Pokémon X and Y, two Punk Girls appear as Lumiose Gang Members. A Punk Girl can team up with a Punk Guy to form a team known as a Punk Couple in Generation VI. Some Punk Girls also specialize in Fire-type Pokémon in the Battle Maison.

In Generation VII, Punk Girls dress similarly to female Team Skull Grunts, but do not wear Team Skull-related accessories and keep their Pokémon in Dusk Balls instead. In Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, it's confirmed that former female Team Skull Grunts take on the Punk Girl appearance. Similar to Generation VI, a Punk Girl can team up with a Punk Guy to form a Punk Pair and challenge the player to a Double Battle. A Punk Girl can also team up with a male Sightseer to form a Tourist Couple for Double Battles. Punk Girls also appear in the spin-off Pokémon Masters EX, where they are counterparts to Street Thugs.
