A '''Super Nerd''' (Japanese: '''{{tt|理科系|りかけい}}のおとこ''' ''Science Man'') is a type of [[Pokémon Trainer]] that first debuted in the [[Generation I]] games. They are generally depicted as skinny young men with long hair and glasses, and are grown-up male {{tc|Schoolkid}}s.<ref name="NOM 2000-07" /> In {{2v2|HeartGold|SoulSilver}}, they are accompanied by a remote-controlled robotic {{p|Pikachu}} holding a [[{{i|Poké Ball]]}}.
They generally use a combination of {{t|Poison}}- and {{type|Electric}} Pokémon, except those in the [[Cinnabar Gym]], who specialize in {{type|Fire}}s instead.
In [[Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!|Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!]], Super Nerds battled outside of [[Gym]]s will award three [[{{i|Poké Ball]]}}s along with [[prize money]] upon being defeated.
