Trainers’ Roles in Pokémon Masters, Pokémon Adventures, the Pokémon TCG, and More

Learn more about some of the most important characters in the world of Pokémon through these Trainer Spotlights.

Pokémon have all sorts of great personalities, but it would be a shame to overlook the human characters who share their world. That's why we started our Trainer Spotlight series—to highlight the many wonderful people who have dedicated their lives to training, researching, and battling with Pokémon.

Each of these spotlight articles focuses on a single character (and in one notable case, on a certain troublesome trio) to show how they've made an impact in video games, animation, manga, and the Pokémon Trading Card Game. Now's a great time to catch up on these memorable Trainers and learn about the roles they've played.
