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.
