The Pokémon Trainer is a playable character in the fighting video game, M.U.G.E.N Trilogy. He was confirmed along with the other characters who appear in Super Smash Bros. Brawl on March 20, 2015. Both male and female variants, Red and Leaf can't fight, but they can summon their Pokémon (either Squirtle, Ivysaur or Charizard) to the battlefield upon starting the battle. Their voice actors, Tomoe Hanba (Japanese) & Billy Bob Thompson (who also voiced Greninja, English) for Red, and Wakana Kingyo (Japanese) and Kate Bristol (English) for Leaf provide the roles for the Pokémon Trainer. For their Pokémon, Rikako Aikawa (Japanese) and Michele Knotz (English) provide the role for Squirtle, Inuko Inuyama (Japanese) and Justin Anselmi (English) provide the role for Ivysaur and Shin'ichirō Miki provides the role for Charizard in this fighting video game, using voice clips recycled from Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
From the very outset of the Pokémon franchise, the world of Pokémon had been established as an Earth-like world populated by humans and a diverse set of creatures called Pokémon. In this world, humans are referred to as Pokémon trainers if they collect, take care of, and train Pokémon for use in competitive matches with those of other trainers called Pokémon battles. While most games focus on the battling aspect, other Pokémon-related hobbies and professions exist in the world, such as Pokémon Breeders, who focus on raising Pokémon; Pokémon Coordinators, who train Pokémon for contests; and Pokémon Professors, who focus on studying various aspects of the Pokémon themselves. Nevertheless, raising and training a team of Pokémon is the main activity/quest that the main Pokémon RPGs feature; as such, a player of a Pokémon RPG is considered a Pokémon trainer themselves.
All main Pokémon games cast the player as a young Pokémon trainer ready to set out on a Pokémon journey across that game's region of the Pokémon world, on a quest to capture many species of Pokémon and, from them, train a team of Pokémon proficient enough in the sport of Pokémon battling that they may carry the trainer to victory against that region's Pokémon League. The trainer's traditional tool for capturing Pokémon is the Poké Ball, which is sold at Poké Marts in the game's various cities and comes in many distinctive varieties; new trainers also receive a piece of high-tech equipment called the Pokédex, which functions as an encyclopedia for the Pokémon in that region which the trainer must fill up, among other adventuring gear.
