A '''Pokémon Trainer''' (Japanese: '''ポケモントレーナー''' ''Pokémon Trainer'') is a [[Human|person]] who {{pkmn2|caught|catches}}, {{pkmn|training|trains}}, cares for, and {{pkmn|battle}}s with {{OBP|Pokémon|species}}. The majority of people within the known [[Pokémon world]] are Trainers.

Many Trainers leave home at about the age of ten, sometimes accompanied with a [[starter Pokémon]] obtained from a [[Pokémon Professor]]. Many will travel around one or more [[region]]s, doing such things as gathering information for a [[Pokédex]], perfecting their technique, collecting [[Gym]] [[Badge]]s, and working to become a [[Pokémon Master]]. No matter what their specialties or aims, there is one code that they all follow—when two Trainers make eye contact, they must have a {{pkmn|battle}}.

There is a {{player|playable character}} called "{{sbw|Pokémon Trainer|Pokémon Trainer}}" in the game [[Super Smash Bros. Brawl]]. His appearance is based on {{ga|Red}}'s [[Generation III]] design, and he uses {{p|Squirtle|members}} {{p|Ivysaur|of}} {{p|Charizard|the}} [[evolution]]ary families of the [[Kanto]] {{pkmn2|starter}}s to battle against the others.
===Trophy information===
Two trophies appear in the 3DS version of [[Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U]], one of the Brawl character and one of the player characters from {{g|X and Y}}.

In the games, Pokémon Trainer (rendered as "{{PK}}{{MN}} Trainer" until [[Generation VI]], in which the full title "Pokémon Trainer" is written out) is used as the Trainer class for certain storyline characters. These opponents tend to be the most powerful non-arena Trainers the player will face, notably including [[rival]]s (except {{ga|Blue}} and {{ga|Silver}}, who are instead outright referred to as rivals). This class is used for every opponent in link battles and the [[Pokémon World Tournament]], {{DL|Battle Tree|special Trainers}} in the [[Battle Tree]], {{DL|Battle Agency|Bosses}} of the [[Battle Agency]], as well as the following characters:
* {{game|Gold and Silver|s|Pokémon Gold, Silver}}, and {{v2|Crystal}}: {{ga|Red}}, {{ga|Cal}}, and {{ga|Carrie}}
