Pokémon Trainer

335 bytes added, 15 January
1- Add "core series" and "spin-off" sections. 2- Add Play It series.
While the viability of [[Pokémon training]] as a lifestyle is never outright stated in most games, it is implied in {{game|Sun and Moon}} that it does not guarantee a sufficient income. Several [[Eevee users]] are seen having to take up part-time jobs in order to obtain the finances needed to support themselves, with the latter being unable to go into retirement using just the funds from Pokémon training.

===Trainer class===
'''Trainer classes''' are the types of Pokémon Trainers one can battle in all [[core series]] Pokémon games. They come in different varieties and sprites which describe their occupation, estimated age, and sometimes what Pokémon they train. For example, a {{tc|Psychic}} is a young adult with telekinetic powers who trains {{type|Psychic}} Pokémon.
 
While in {{pkmn|Colosseum}} and {{Pokémon XD}}, there is one model for each minor Trainer class, in [[Pokémon Battle Revolution]], each minor Trainer class can consist of multiple models.

==As a Trainer class==
[[File:Red HGSS battle.png|thumb|250px|The Trainer class as it appears in-battle]]
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:
* [[Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!]]: [[Mina]], Blue{{tt|*|First battle}}, [[Archer]]{{tt|*|After Team Rocket is disbanded}}, {{ga|Green}}, Red
* {{g|Sword and Shield}}: [[Hop]], [[Bede]]{{tt|*|Before becoming a Gym Leader}}, [[Marnie]]{{tt|*|Before Champion Cup rematches}}, [[Piers]]{{tt|*|During Champion Cup rematches}}, [[Leon]]{{tt|*|After losing his Championship title}}, [[Sordward]], [[Shielbert]]

In the introduction of [[Pokémon Play It!]] and [[Pokémon Play It! Version 2]], {{OBP|Julie|Play It!}} says that she and the [[player character]] are Pokémon Trainers. However, they play the {{pkmn|Trading Card Game}} rather than train Pokémon.
