Swimmer (Trainer class)

2 bytes removed, 8 June
A '''Swimmer''' is a type of [[Pokémon Trainer]] that first debuted in the [[Generation I]] games. Originally, the only Swimmers to appear in-game were male—'''Swimmer ♂''' (Japanese: '''かいパンやろう''' ''Swimsuit Guy'')—but in [[Generation II]], female swimmers, '''Swimmer ♀''' (Japanese: '''ビキニのおねえさん''' ''Bikini Lady'') were introduced. Swimmers are found in the sea, usually just off the coast, and in some [[Gym]]s. From Generations II through V, they were formatted as '''Swimmer♂''' and '''Swimmer♀'''. They specialize in {{type|Water}} Pokémon.
When female Swimmers are paired with male {{tc|Tuber}}s in [[Double Battle]]s, they are called {{tc|Sis and& Bro}}s. Pairs of one male and one female Swimmer are known as {{tc|Swimmers}}, while a pair of two female Swimmers is known as {{tc|Swimmer Girls}}.
In {{pkmn|FireRed and LeafGreen}}, [[Beauty (Trainer class)|Beauties]] from Generation I games on [[water route]]s were reassigned as Swimmer♀, but this was reverted back in [[Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!|Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!]].
