An Actor (Japanese: げきだんいん TrouperUSUM; はいゆう ActorB2W2) is a type of Pokémon Trainer introduced in Pokémon Black 2 and White 2.

In Black 2 and White 2, Actors appear exclusively at Pokéstar Studios. Their female counterparts are Actresses.

There are two Actors who appear in two different movie series.

Actor Fabio has the appearance of a male Ace Trainer and appears in Rosa's version of the Love and Battles Series. He plays the role of Boyfriend Antonio in Love and Battles 3 - Antonio's Story. Like all opponents in his series, he uses only a single Smeargle during filming.

Actor Lars has the appearance of a male Scientist and appears in the Everlasting Memories Series. He plays the role of Assistant Manuelo in Everlasting Memories - INITIATE and Everlasting Memories 3 - RUNTIME EXCEPTION. In the former, he uses a Prop R1 during filming. In the latter, he uses a Prop R2.

In Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, Actor is used as a gender-neutral descriptor. A single Actor, Meredith, who has the appearance of a female Office Worker, appears on each island of Alola in the areas where nectar can be gathered: Melemele Meadow, Royal Avenue, Ula'ula Meadow, and Poni Meadow. She uses each island's respective form of Oricorio. After being defeated in all four locations, she will give away TM75 (Swords Dance).
