A Schoolboy (Japanese: スクールボーイ Schoolboy) is a type of Pokémon Trainer introduced in Generation VI. In Kalos, they are depicted as young boys dressed in school uniforms who carry a backpack around with them. They could be considered elder versions of the School Kid class.

In Galar, they look notably younger. They also wear clothing inspired by British school uniforms.[1] In the Battle Tower, they mostly specialize Pokémon that are Psychic type or have high Special Attack.
