Type expert

A type expert is a Pokémon Trainer who specializes in just one type. These Trainers are most commonly Gym Leaders or members of the Elite Four. There are also some Trainer classes that specialize in one type, such as the Bug Catchers who specialize solely in training and battling with Bug-type Pokémon.

Some notable type experts include Brock, the Pewter City Gym Leader who specializes in only Rock-type Pokémon, and Misty, the Cerulean City Gym Leader who specializes in only Water-type Pokémon.

The Type Expert Tournament at the Pokémon World Tournament in Pokémon Black 2 and White 2 features type experts from all of the regions known at the time.
