A Bodybuilder (Japanese: にくたいは Bodybuilder) is a type of Pokémon Trainer that first debuted in the Generation III games, and are currently exclusive to Pokémon Colosseum and Pokémon XD.

Bodybuilders are tall, muscular men and women in exercise outfits. Like many of Orre's Trainer classes, they do not specialize in any particular strategy or Pokémon type (but do like to use Pokémon that heavily use physical attacks). Many can be found in places such as Mt. Battle and Pyrite Colosseum, with most being overconfident and eager to battle. Many special Trainers, such as Mt. Battle's hundredth Trainer in both games and Deep King Agnol, are based on Bodybuilders. Bodybuilders mainly use Pokémon with high Attack and Special Attack.
