An Earl (Japanese: アール Earl) is a type of Pokémon Trainer that debuted in Generation VI. This Trainer class is a title of nobility, granted in the Battle Chateau, and Trainers with this class only appear there. Earl is the third rank of nobility for males, ranking above Viscount and below Marquis. Its counterpart for females is Countess.

The male player character may earn the title of Earl by winning enough battles in the Battle Chateau. All opponent Earls use parties of two Pokémon at level 25 (if no Writ of Challenge is active).
