A Model (Japanese: モデル Model) is a type of Pokémon Trainer introduced in Generation VIII. They're depicted as dark-skinned women wearing purple coats with yellow patterns, resembling a Liepard's fur, hair that is cut into a bang on one side and shaved on the other, and yellow-gold eyeshadow and lipstick. They mostly use Bug types and keep their Pokémon in Dusk Balls. In the Battle Tower, they specialize in Ice- and Dark-type Pokémon.
