A Sailor (Japanese: ふなのり Sailor) is a type of Pokémon Trainer that debuted in the Generation I games. Originally they were often depicted as burly men in sailor suits flexing their muscles, though their actual physical shape varies between games. In Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum, a sailor named Eldritch plays a minor part in the game's storyline.

They usually specialize in Water-type Pokémon, with the exception of using Raticate and the Machop evolution family.

In Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!, Sailors battled outside of Gyms will award three Poké Balls along with prize money upon being defeated.
