Pokémon Trainer

No change in size, 23:24, 23 October 2018
* It is stated in the anime that a person may not become a Trainer until the age of 10; however, this is not the case in other media as some Trainers are obviously below the minimum age, such as the Trainer classes {{tc|Twins}}, {{tc|Tuber}}, and {{tc|Preschooler}}. Some Preschoolers in the [[Battle Subway]] emphasize the fact that they are four years old. However, in the anime episode ''[[BW065|Battling the Bully!]]'', [[Cilan]] mentions that young kids are allowed to have battles for fun.
* In [[Generation I]] and [[Generation II]], the word "Trainer" is not capitalized. However, it is capitalized in later games.
* In ''[[Pocket Monsters: The Animation]]'', it was revealed that Pokémon training was a very dangerous sport, as the mere act of training a Pokémon can result in severe injuries or even death. It also mentions that various men try to go out and become a Pokémon trainer at age 10 (which was considered the legal age of adulthood), and there was a high dropout rate regarding whether they become skilled trainersTrainers that afterwards they come across as incompetent. It is also implied that this is the reason why most of the professional workplaces are almost entirely staffed by women.
