In the anime
Ash and his friends visited the Pokémon Trainers' School in Gonna Rule The School!. Roxanne, the Rustboro Gym Leader works as a teacher there. She describes it as a place where "students can learn all about the world of Pokémon". As a teacher, she promotes cooperation between the students and says that they are not to compete with one another but to learn and grow together as friends while promoting good interactions between humans and Pokémon.
The school's motto is "Go forth together with me, friend".
Besides the classrooms, the school has a large Poké Ball deposit room, meant to store the many rental Pokémon available at the academy, and several outdoor battlefields for its students to practice on.
The school is divided into four classes, including:
- Beginner's Class
- A class that has a classroom with a huge TV screen to receive lectures via videophone from authorities like Professor Oak. It is taught by Roxanne, and sometimes the students have field trips. They also have Pokémon battle training where they choose one random Pokémon for the battle.
- Pokémon Doctor's Class
- A class that is for potential future Pokémon Doctors, taught jointly by a teacher and a Nurse Joy.
- Pokémon Battle Class
- A class that has its own battle arena and a referee.
- Pokémon Contest Class
- A class for future Pokémon Coordinators to learn about Pokémon Contests and practice ideas for appeals. After training, there is a quiz.
