Trainer PR Videos (Japanese: トレーナープロモ Trainer Promo) are approximately 13-second video clips featuring the player or one of their Pokémon, made from combinations of different effects or "events". PR Videos can first be made upon reaching Lumiose City, at the PR Video Studio on South Boulevard across from the Pokémon Center.

Other people may view a player's favorite Trainer PR Video through the Player Search System. If the player has not selected a favorite Video, has their Trainer PR Video set to "private" in the PSS Settings, or is offline, no Video will be available for viewing. When a person requests to see a player's Trainer PR Video, the player will receive a prompt to share their PR Video. If the player selects "Yes", the Video will be sent.

It has an anime equivalent in Pokévision.

Making PR Videos

At the PR Video Studio

Players have three slots they can use to create three different PR Videos. To create a new PR Video, the player must visit the PR Video Studio in Lumiose City. Otherwise, the player may at any time favorite, view, or edit previously created Videos at any PC. If no Video has been created, the PC will have no option for Trainer PR Videos. Editing PR Videos at a PC only allows the player to alter the events in a PR Video.

At the PR Video Studio, the player may either speak to the man at the left hand counter or to the makeup artist in the green room (through the door on the left of the studio) to make PR Videos. The player will have the option to favorite, view, shoot new, or retake previously created Videos, or to shoot a new PR Video in a slot that has not been used. In contrast to only being able to edit events at a PC (while the player's appearance and the cast Pokémon remain the same), choosing to retake or shoot a new PR Video will always update the player's appearance and recast a Pokémon.

Shooting a new PR Video will erase any event settings that were previously in that slot and start over with the defaults. When the shoot new option is chosen, the player may choose to either create the Video entirely on their own from the defaults, or they may choose to have the studio "Surprise me" and create a Video following a preset theme. If a preset option is chosen, the first Pokémon in the player's party will automatically be cast (though no preset theme uses the Pokémon in the Video) and the player will not be able to edit the Video afterwards.

Retaking a PR Video retains all event settings (except those that rely on Pokémon-Amie stats), but updates the player's appearance and makeup as well as recasting the Pokémon in the Video. The player will also be able to edit the Video.

Custom editing PR Videos

A Trainer PR Video is defined by events set for 11 seconds, numbered from Second No. 0 to Second No. 10. Events control things like music, background, visual and sound effects, and more, as detailed in the list below.

When an event is set in one Second, it stays in effect until a different effect is selected in a later Second or until it naturally ends. Sound effects and captions will naturally end after a period of time, while other events will continue perpetually. Sound effects and captions may also overlap each other from one Second to the next.

In Second No. 1 or later, all events also have a reset option. The reset option will deselect any currently selected option for the event, allowing the option last set for that event to persist. (Sound effects, effects, and captions also have this option at Second No. 0.) Reset can also be activated as its own option for the effect event to cut off any ongoing effect, so long as no effect option is currently selected and there is an ongoing effect.

Green room makeup

On the left side of the PR Video Studio in Lumiose City is a green room where the player can talk to a makeup artist to apply makeup for their Trainer PR Video. This makeup only applies to PR Videos and cannot be seen anywhere else. If the player talks to the makeup artist after previously having had makeup applied, they can choose to use the same look they last used.

The options available in the green room depend on the player's gender.

While the majority of events are available by default, many must be unlocked in special ways. These can be divided into special captions that each have their own unique requirement (and that are automatically added when those requirements are met), and other events (including some captions) unlocked by speaking to specific NPCs in Lumiose City.

The special requirements for captions are given after that caption in the events list below, headed by "Req:". The other events may be obtained from the following people:

  • Woman in the PR Video Studio (on South Boulevard), at the right counter
    • When the player has at least 25 style, she will give her first set of events, marked below with "PRVS1".
    • When the player has at least 90 style, she will give her second set of events, marked below with "PRVS2".
  • Rich Boy in Café Action! (on North Boulevard)
    • Gives captions daily, marked below with "CA-RB". Initially, he will give three consecutive* captions from his list of unlockable captions starting from a random caption, but on subsequent visits, he will only give two continuing from the last caption he gave.
  • Madame in Café Action! (on North Boulevard)
    • She appears in the café when the player has 255 style*, and will give the player two events, marked below with "CA-M".
