A Suit Actor (Japanese: スーツアクター Suit Actor or スーツアクトレス Suit Actress) is a type of Pokémon Trainer introduced in Pokémon Black 2 and White 2, appearing exclusively at Pokéstar Studios. They are depicted as stage hands in green suits. When the films are edited, visual effects are applied and they appear as the character they are portraying.

While filming their roles, they use a wide variety of Pokémon with preferences dictated by their role in the movie.

Many Suit Actors can be found around the studio. One will provide an overview of the rules when filming movies.
