A '''Poké Maniac''' or '''PokéManiac''' (Japanese: '''かいじゅうマニア''' ''{{wp|Kaiju|Monster}} Maniac'') is a type of [[Pokémon Trainer]] that first debuted in the [[Generation I]] games. They were originally presented as strange boys with long hair who wear trenchcoats. In Generation III, they were changed so that they became {{pkmn|cosplay}}ers dressing up in beastPokémon-like costumes. In [[Generation VII]], Poké Maniacs cosplay as {{p|Slowpoke}} and, when defeated, make Slowpoke impressions with their faces.
 
They tend to use Pokémon in the {{egg3|Monster}}—such as {{p|Lairon}}, {{p|Lickitung}} and {{p|Charmander}}.
