Trainer classes are the types of Pokémon Trainers one can battle in all main 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 Psychic is a young adult with telekinetic powers who trains Psychic-type Pokémon. All Trainer classes have overworld or field sprites that sometimes may be used for non-Trainers. Notable Trainer classes, such as Gym Leaders, have unique sprites between each individual one. Trainer classes can be combined in certain Double Battles; for example a Pilot and a Stewardess can team up to form a Cabin Crew; however, special class names are not created for Trainers involved in a Tag Battle.
