A Curmudgeon (Japanese: しぶめなおじいさん Bitter Old Man) is a type of Pokémon Trainer that debuted in Pokémon XD. They are depicted as old men wearing glasses, a purple sweater, and dark blue pants.

There is no pattern to their Pokémon's types—rather, they use multiple types like most Trainers in Pokémon XD.
