A Hunter (Japanese: ハンター Hunter) is a type of Pokémon Trainer that first debuted in the Generation III games, appearing in Pokémon Colosseum. They are depicted as men wearing hunting gear and goggles. There is also a female variation with bright blue hair and overalls, orange undershirt, as well as a brown vest and boots. Miror B.Peons Reath and Ferma resemble the female variation. Like many of Orre's Trainer classes, they do not specialize in any particular strategy or Pokémon.
