Poké Maniac (かいじゅうマニア Monster Maniac), named PokéManiac before Generation IV, is a Trainer Class introduced in Generation I.

They first appeared as strange boys wearing trench coats or cloaks with long hair covering half of their face. Since Generation III, they are Pokémon cosplayers dressed like Charizard, Tyranitar, or Slowpoke. Bill is said to be a Poké Maniac.

They raise many different types of Pokémon from the Monster Egg Group, such as Charmander, Lickitung, Lairon and Cubone. They also seem to favor rare Pokémon.

Trivia

  • In Pokémon Stadium 2, the PokéManiacs seem to wear trench coats instead of cloaks. Since all Trainer appearances are based on the sprites of Gold, Silver and Crystal, this is the only Trainer Class not to have his appearance based on his appearance in the Generation II games.
  • The Generation III sprites somewhat resembles Scraggy's shed skin.
