A Rich Boy (Japanese: おぼっちゃま High-class Child) is a type of Pokémon Trainer that debuted in the Generation III games. They are depicted as boys dressed in elaborate and fancy clothing. Their female counterpart is a Lady.

They generally use weak Pokémon but pay out a large amount of money as a reward; the largest recorded prize money after a Trainer battle was $10,240, which can be multiplied to $20,480 with an Amulet Coin or Luck Incense. Many of their Pokémon also carry Nuggets. They use Full Restores to heal their Pokémon in battle.

In X and Y, Rich Boys appear in the Battle Chateau, where they are classified as Barons, Viscounts, Earls, Marquises, or Dukes. They also appear in the Battle Maison, the only place in X and Y where they are explicitly indentified as Rich Boys.

Dol, a Rich Boy

Be the Best! Pokémon B+W

A Rich Boy by the name of Dol (Japanese: ドル Dol) appears in Be the Best! Pokémon B+W.

Monta meets him on the Battle Subway and asks him for a battle. He sends out his powerful Bouffalant and Swoobat, quickly defeating Monta's Snivy and Boldore. Several days later, Monta asks him for a rematch, which he accepts. Despite him expecting the same outcome, Monta presses on, and with his Pokémon's new moves and held items, he finally manages to defeat Dol.


Dol's Bouffalant
Dol's Bouffalant was first used in a battle alongside Swoobat against Monta's Snivy and Boldore. Snivy hits Bouffalant with a Leaf Tornado. However, Bouffalant did not take any damage due to its Sap Sipper Ability. Bouffalant uses Horn Attack on Snivy, knocking it out. Bouffalant then hits Boldore with a powerful attack, taking it out as well.

In a rematch against Monta, Bouffalant starts off with a Head Charge, which hits Snivy but is ineffective due to Snivy using Protect. It then uses Megahorn on Boldore, to which Boldore retaliates with Bulldoze. It is eventually finished off by Boldore's Stone Edge.

Bouffalant's known moves are Horn Attack, Head Charge, and Megahorn, and its Ability is Sap Sipper.

Debut Challenge the Battle Subway!
Dol's Swoobat
Dol's Swoobat was first used in a battle alongside Bouffalant against Monta's Snivy and Boldore. After Snivy faints, Monta decides for Boldore to use a Rock-type move on Swoobat because it would be super effective, but Swoobat uses Fly to evade it as Bouffalant hits Boldore with a powerful attack, knocking it out.

In the rematch against Monta, it uses Fly once again to get out of reach of Boldore but is shot down by Boldore's Smack Down. It goes in for a Heart Stamp which Boldore is able to withstand with its held item. It is then hurt slightly by Boldore's Bulldoze and taken out by a Slam from Snivy, who avoided Boldore's Bulldoze attack using its Air Balloon.

Swoobat's known moves are Fly and Heart Stamp.

Okane Daisukī

(Japanese: オカネダイスキー Okane Daisukī), a character from Pocket Monsters DP, is based on the Rich Boy class. He appeared in PMDP20, where he was seen walking with a Nuzleaf, Wobbuffet, and some other people. His Japanese name is a pun of "I love money".

An unnamed Rich Boy appeared in PMDP58 in a battle facility, where he battled Red's Clefairy using Roselia and Togekiss.


Rich Boy's Roselia
The Rich Boy sent out Roselia as his first Pokémon to battle Red's Clefairy. After blocking Clefairy's Pound, the Rich Boy immediately recalled Roselia.

Roselia's only known move is Protect.

Debut PMDP58
Rich Boy's Togekiss
Togekiss is another of the unnamed Rich Boy's that was sent out to battle Red's Clefairy. Even though Clefairy made the battle mismatched by using his gas as a weapon, Togekiss was still able to win.
