A Hiker (Japanese: やまおとこ Mountaineer) is a type of Pokémon Trainer that first debuted in the Generation I games. They appear as large, bearded men carrying a walking stick and hiking gear. In the first two generations, they appear to be wearing a hard hat for protection. In the following generations, they wear a hat more associated with alpinists instead and also carry a large backpack.
