A Preschooler (Japanese: えんじ Kindergartner) is a type of Trainer class introduced in Generation V. They are young children dressed in uniforms typical of Japanese kindergartens. They could be considered younger versions of the School Kid Trainer class. They are often found with at least one other Preschooler and near a Nursery Aide.

They usually use small cute Pokémon that are unevolved, and they tend to give out small sums of prize money when defeated.

In the anime

A group of Kindergartners from the anime.

In The Purr-fect Hero, Ash and his friends stop by at a school to entertain the Preschoolers who were excited about meeting Pokémon Trainers. One boy, Timmy, is ridiculed by his classmates because the only Pokémon he wants to meet is a Meowth. He later explains that a wild Meowth had saved him when he was attacked by a wild Beedrill once, and none of his classmates believed his story. Meanwhile, Jessie and James find out about the preschool and use it to their advantage in another scheme to steal Pikachu. Timmy believes that their Meowth was the Meowth that had saved him. However, their plans are foiled, and in the end, the real Meowth comes to the rescue, and Timmy's peers no longer doubt him.

In Here Comes the Trubbish Squad!, a group of Preschoolers befriend a Trubbish. Their kindergarten teacher, Daniela, is opposed to the idea of letting Trubbish stay at the school because of its smell, but the children want to keep it. In the end, the conflict is resolved when Trubbish saves everyone from potential danger, and Daniela finds that Trubbish will stop releasing bad odors when it becomes friendly towards a person.

In Kindergarten Chaos!, Ash and his friends go with Penelope to the kindergarten class she teaches and let the kids play with their Pokémon. One of Penelope's students, a young boy named Randall, is shy and too afraid to interact with anyone. Froakie wouldn't interact with the kids at first, but by the end of the episode, both Randall and Froakie overcome their issues and become great friends. Ash promises Randall that when Randall is old enough to become a trainer, Ash will have a battle with him.
