A [[Pokémon Trainer]]'s '''ID number''' (Japanese: '''{{j|IDNo.}}''') is a number that is assigned to a Trainer when they begin their Pokémon journey. It is used, in conjunction with the [[Original Trainer|Trainer's name]] and gender, to identify whether the Pokémon is an [[outsider Pokémon]] by the {{pkmn|games}}.
 
Prior to [[Generation VII]], itTrainers ishave a five-digit number ranging from 0 to {{wp|65535 (number)|65535}}. In Generation VII, itTrainers ishave a six-digit number.

==Generation VII==
From [[Generation VII]] onward, the ID number is a six-digit number. A five-digit Trainer ID and a five-digit Secret ID are still generated but are not displayed on the [[Trainer Card]] directly. Rather, they are used to calculate the final ID number by using the following formula: <code>ID<sub>final</sub> = ID<sub>trainer</sub> + ID<sub>secret</sub>* × 65536</code>. The last six digits of the resulting number are what is displayed when the [[Trainer Card]] is viewed. Pokémon transferred from earlier generations will be displayed with their original five-digit ID in the summary screen.
 
For example, consider a new save file in which the player is assigned Trainer ID and Secret ID are 00033 and 34262 respectively. The final ID number will be 33 + 34262*65536 =====Example===== 2245394465. However, only the last six digits are used so the [[Trainer Card]] will display an ID No. of 394465.
Imagine a player starting a new game. Their newly assigned Trainer ID and Secret ID are 00033 and 34262 respectively. The final ID number will be 33 + 34262*65536 = 2245394465. However, only the last six digits are used so the [[Trainer Card]] will display an ID No. of 394465.
If a Pokémon is transferred to Generation VII from a previous generation, its Trainer's ID number will remain 5 digits long.
