PMDP20 (Pocket Monsters DP)

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 PokémonDollar.png10,240, which can be multiplied to PokémonDollar.png20,480 with an Amulet Coin or Luck Incense. Many of their Pokémon also carry Nuggets. They use Full Restores to heal their own Pokémon in battle.

In X and Y, Rich Boys appear in the Battle Chateau, where they are classified as another Trainer class. They also appear in the Battle Maison so there are no Rich Boys that can be battled outside of the Battle Maison.

Dol, a Rich Boy

In the Be the Best! Pokémon B+W manga

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

Monta meets him on the Battle Subway and asks him for a battle. He sends out his powerful Bouffalant and Swoobat. Monta was no match for him and with some sneaky moves, Dol easily defeated Monta. Several days later Monta asks him for a rematch which he accepts. Thinking the outcome will be the same, Monta edges on but with Monta's new moves and held items, Dol is defeated.


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 fainting it. Bouffalant then hits Boldore with a powerful attack fainting it.

In a rematch against Monta, Bouffalant starts off with an Head Charge, which hits Snivy but is unaffected by Snivy using Protect. It then uses Megahorn on Boldore, in 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 and 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 Snivy's Slam as Snivy survived Boldore's Bulldoze attack using the Air Balloon.

Swoobat's known moves are Fly and Heart Stamp.

Debut Challenge the Battle Subway!

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

A Rich Boy appeared with a Haunter in Deprogramming Porygon-Z and another one appeared with a Blitzle in Unraveling Mysteries.

In the Pokémon Pocket Monsters manga

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 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.


Here is a listing of the unnamed Rich Boy's Pokémon:

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.

Togekiss's only known move is Sky Attack.
