A Dancer (Japanese: ダンサー Dancer) is a type of Pokémon Trainer introduced in Generation V. In Unova, they are depicted as young men break dancing. Battling them is optional. Many of them have Western names in the Japanese version of the games. All of them have had only one species of Pokémon, even if that means having the same Pokémon twice. Unlike some Trainer classes, they do not appear to limit themselves to a particular type.

In Alola, Dancers are depicted as young women who practice hula dancing. They exclusively use Oricorio in the main story line and hold their Pokémon in Great Balls.
