What are Pokémon Generation IX Trainers?

Pokémon Generation IX Trainers are those trainers that are found in the Generation IX games – Scarlet and Violet. Pokémon Trainers are people who capture and train Pokémon and then compete to become a Champion. Along their journey they compete with other Pokémon trainers. 


Trainers are grouped into different classes depending on their ability. There are a total of 26 different Trainer Classes in the Generation IX games. The majority of these are generic trainers that are not individually named but are known by a descriptive noun eg Backpacker or Student. They can be found in many different locations where players can challenge them to a match.

More experienced Trainers become Gym Leaders and these Trainers are named. There are 8 Generation IX Trainers that are Gym Leaders and these can be found by playing the Victory Road storyline. Players compete against Gym leaders to win Gym Badges. When all Gym Badges are collected the player can battle the Elite Four.

The Elite Four are four very experienced and strong Trainers. These Trainers are also given names. Once the Elite Four are defeated, the player can go on to battle the Top Champion Geeta.

Team Star are delinquent students that exploit Pokémon for their own aims. There are five Team Star squads each led by a Team Star boss. After defeating Team Star Grunts, the player competes against the Team Star Bosses to win further badges.
