In almost every Generation, new trainer classes are introduced.

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/e/ef/GenIBugcatcher.pnghttp://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/3/31/GenIFisherman.png
To name a few, with Gen I, we started with the Bug Catchers and Fishermen.

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/b/bf/GSC_Schoolboy.pnghttp://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/f/fd/GSC_Officer.png
Gen II came with School Kids and Officers.

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/0/0e/RSE_TriathaleteSwimM.pnghttp://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/4/43/RSE_NinjaBoy.png
Gen III saw the arrival of Triathletes and Ninja Boys.

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/f/f7/DPCowgirl.pnghttp://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/8/8a/DPSocialite.png
Gen IV had additions like Cowgirls and Socialites.

With the Isshu region said to be far away from the past regions, what new trainer classes to you think we'd find?

Also, do you guys have ideas for any new trainer classes that they could add?
Or possibly, are you sick of the additions and want the developers to stick with the old ones?

I have to agree, there were boat loads of business people running around. It's hard to imagine that some of them wouldn't have Pokemon.

Other than that I can't think of anything else specific that they would add...

they should have gangsters. and their pokemon would be the fighting type :p

May 19th, 2010, 08:48 PM
Nurse/Doctor? I dont know why but i want this o.o Don't know how they'd incorporate it though :\.
Cheerleader
Gymnast
Gardener or something of the sort who uses Grass Types.
Acrobat
Circus Folk :D

How about Marketeers/Shoppers?

Lawl I don't know what to call them, but there seem to be tons of people walking around in some market-like area in one of the pics. :3

There was an awesome thread in PG about this awhile back...I can't find it though and the only suggestion I remember was my own...

Pokemon Strategists (jokingly referred to as smogonites):
appear as college-aged young adults carrying charts, notepads, and calculators. Often talk about how effective their pokemon's genes are and their devastating attack strategy. They often use three or more pokemon with w good balance between their typing. They will have AI somewhere between that of an Ace Trainer and a gym leader and their pokemon will occasionally be using an egg move. :P

They should have gangsters, how bout socialites and gentlemen as gangsters? I would lawl hard.

haha business people would be funny. they should also make a business like pokemon for them.

Businessmen with humanform Pokemon.
Gangsters with dark-type Pokemon, although that's a bit unlikely for the loltastically young audience Gamefreak tries to make the games for.

Bikers kind of already fit that description.

And I want Jocks with Fighting type Pokemon.

If I were more original I could come up with more. o3o

Pokemon Trainers!!!!!!!!
the only ACTUAL pokemon trainers we had were: Red, Steven, & 1 other i cant think of at the moment

i think just plain, normal pokemon trainers should become more fruitful, itd make it more realistic :P

Timbjerr
May 20th, 2010, 08:01 AM
I actually like the ideas of a businessman class. They could perhaps use psychic pokemon (good with crunching numbers, forecasting changes in stock market, etc.).

.EJ
May 20th, 2010, 09:14 AM
Businessman is a good one. But how about:

Taxi Cab Driver (it IS a big city)
Bridge Operator (somebody has to do it)
Skipper (since sailors already exist)

Garland
May 20th, 2010, 09:25 AM
Businessman/woman is the most likely. I think we'll probably be seeing Shopping Freaks or Shopaholics, etc.

Hybrid Trainer
May 20th, 2010, 09:41 AM
I recon that with all the commotion about there being vehicles that there will be
Taxi Driver's
Trucker's
Racer's

Dragonika
May 20th, 2010, 01:45 PM
Hmmm well....

Gymnasts
buisness workers
market owners

BUMS for the back streets lmao with pokemon like skitty and houndoor :D

.EJ
May 20th, 2010, 02:07 PM
YES! Somebody else agrees with the taxi cab driver xD

Hmmm well....

Gymnasts
buisness workers
market owners

Rattata makes more sense since they are known to hang around alleys. =p

Uhh, what about Lass/Youngster/Ace Trainers? Then again, those trainers don't really add much to the plot. 'cept maybe Joey

Businessman/woman is the most likely. I think we'll probably be seeing Shopping Freaks or Shopaholics, etc. [

*imagines a sprite of a lady laden down with shopping bags* Lol!

Skateboarder/Rollerbladers wouls be a good idea. They should put Trialtheletes back in. Oh, and Scuba Divers if Dive returns...*can't think of anyone else at the monent*

PiPVoda
May 25th, 2010, 08:55 PM
businessman/woman like already said
ranger?
nudist :D
Traveler (if we don't already have it)

Azzurra
May 25th, 2010, 09:29 PM
What about the addition of the "Pokemon Master" rank? Or, even the reintroduction of the "Snowboarder" title?

GoldvsRed
May 26th, 2010, 10:57 AM
Gen. I had Channelers, Gen. II had Mediums, Gen. III had Hex Maniacs, and Gen. IV didn't really have any spooky-themed Trainers. Because of the more realistic turn, maybe we'll be seeing Goths? They could use Duskulls, and Houndours.

Gamer? I don't really know what Pokémon they would use though. They could be a somewhat stereotype 'geek' playing on/holding a Gameboy Original.

Well, there ARE Supernerds... :3

I would have said so many things here, but thinking back, everything has been done!

I was going to say a REAL trainer, but then Ace Trainers came to mind...
I was going to say a cheerleader, but they would barely be any different to Lasses...
I was going to say so much, but... now I'll say,

No more trainer classes, please!

ahh, a modest answer. We do have one trainer class not used yet:
superlonelyuglynerdloser guy or lad :D.

May 26th, 2010, 01:20 PM
Going by my guess that Isshu is set in America...
Football Players, or as someone else said earlier, Jocks.
Someone said "Mimes", I'd like the broader "street performers"
Treehuggers/Hippies
Runaway
And to replace Rancher, I'd like Cowboy. I don't like how the male Ranchers are fat and pedo-y.
Uh, Black trainers! That's not the class name, they could be the jock class.

What kind of new Trainer Classes would you like to see. I would love a pirate. And I think there might be one if you look at one of the images revealed today. It is the last picture in Serebii's Pre release pictures. The guy on top out of the four trainers looks like a pirate to me.

Izanagi
June 14th, 2010, 07:17 PM
Team Aqua Grunt =/= Pirate

Anyway, seeing as how we'll be entering a more urban setting, probably some class like "Thug" or "Gangster" (even though there will no doubt be some people bringing up how PC that may be).

Dr.Garrison
June 14th, 2010, 07:22 PM
Sailors... Pirates. They are pretty much the same. Aye? As for me, I'd like to see some kinda Sumo person who has only heavy pokemon, or something.

I can see your point about that Pirate Trainer class, But pirate is actually a same kind of class like Team Aqua. Their costumes is really similar to pirate to me. The new class is probably the New Evil Team. I don't know about this but, PokeMafia? Samurai Trainers? or, a Army Trainers? Nah, I'm not sure. :D

SIN1488
June 14th, 2010, 09:38 PM
I think one new one will be a salaryman/businessman, as you can see in some pictures of Isshu, there are guys walking around with briefcases.

I can't seem to think of any I would want that haven't been put into the game already, I'll have to come back when I come up with something.

Erick
June 14th, 2010, 09:45 PM
-Pr*stitute (nah, joke)
-Samurai
-Chef
-Soccer Player
-Business Man
-Business Woman
-sexy Nurse

IDK.

SIN1488
June 14th, 2010, 10:02 PM
-Chef

IDK.

A chef would be cool, their most used pokemon could be Gulpin/Swalot, Magikarp (lol), Krabby, and or Corphish.....

Edit: vvvvv"Don't forget Munchlax" Oh yeah, good point.

rocky505
June 14th, 2010, 10:04 PM
Dont forget Munchlax^

Filler filler

Hibaru
June 15th, 2010, 07:13 PM
Nah, Still the same :
-Samurai Trainers.
-Poke`Mafia Trainers.
-Pokemon Riders Trainers. (Ride a Pokemon)
-Knight Trainers.
-Military Trainers. (Air Force, Using a lot of Flying Pokemon replacing Bird Trainers)
-Mechanic Trainers. (Using a lot of Steel Pokemon)

That's an AWESOME Trainer CLASSES! Haaahahaha!:D

Treehuggers/Hippies


Well if there are street performers and this is in a big city, then why not Bboys/Bgirls? *Headspins* :D
Actually that would be perfect, because then their main pokemon could be Hitmontop.....

And Treehuggers/Hippies, lawl, that would be interesting.

rocky505
June 15th, 2010, 11:24 PM

No filler no filler There was no Character limit it didnt warn me at all.

Honchcrow would be a great Pokemon for them.

Chaos Rush
June 16th, 2010, 01:51 PM
-Mechanic Trainers. (Using a lot of Steel Pokemon)

There's already an Engineer class. They appear in the Kanto-based games.

I think it would be interesting to see a "Rapper" class. Also a "Twilight FanGirl" class. They'll mainly use Ghost & Dark type Pokemon, plus Zubat.

Eurydice
June 16th, 2010, 01:53 PM
i think it would be cool to have travelers, since this region is farther away from the others have travelers from the other regions in the game.

ElectricScyther
June 16th, 2010, 02:38 PM
The "black" trainer class you want so bad is the DJs.
I'm thinking a Graffiti artist using a Smeargle. And maybe a Priest sort of Psychic type user, or a Kung Fu Monk using Fighting types like Medicham. Then of course the over-fan-demanded Businessperson trainer type.

SIN1488

Yes! They need all the elements of Hip-Hop (Mc's, Dj's, Writers, and Breakdancers), that would be awesome. And it is mostly in a big city, so it would make sense. I'm not sure how big Rapping is in Japan, but I know there are definitely Dj's, graffiti writers, and breakdancers, so it could happen. I think the most likely one would be breakdancers though.

As long as they were real footballers. Not that stupid Rugby ripoff the Americans call football. :P
I do doubt they would use American Footballers though, seeing as the only country that actually plays it is the USA itself.

what ever happened to Jr. trainers? I would like to see a samurai.

June 16th, 2010, 03:46 PM
Football player (one called Ronaldo, since in the last decade, three of the best world players have that name: Ronaldo, Ronaldinho, Cristiano Ronaldo)
Hippies (only with grass pokémons, if them faint, they smoke them :D)
No hip hop elements please (apart of the grafitti artist, that would be cool)
Mega nerds (you can only find them in their houses, in front of their pc's)
Divers (you can only find them underwater)

If by "only country that actually plays it" you mean "not just the US, but also the UK, Germany, Sweden, Switzerland, Finland, Mexico, Austria, Japan, Israel, and Spain, all of whom have professional and/or collegiate football leagues, and there's also the International Federation of American Football regulating five continents" then you're absolutely correct.

Anyway, one class I'd like to see is "Master." They'd be a post-game type, using six high-level, fully-evolved Pokemon, maybe even starters or pseudolegends. Something with actual difficulty, because I'm disappointed in Ace Trainers and Veterans. There's even some potential characters for that- ex-Elite Four members like Agatha, Lorelei, and Flannery's unseen grandfather, and whoever it was Blue beat to become Champion. There's got to be more powerful trainers than just the Elite Four and champ.

I'd also like to see a movie star/celebrity, lifeguard, adult-age ninja (so far we have Koga, Janine... and a bunch of kids), doctors/nurses, and spies.

xDaisuke0
June 16th, 2010, 07:58 PM
Bring back the Gamblers! :o
But srsly, Business Man/Woman in the city, Steel types? :3
Maybe some Desert people, like... with the whole headscarf and such. Ground Types.
Jungleboys :D

Magmarizer
June 16th, 2010, 08:18 PM
I dont care if they have any new ones, but i want to see more interesting placement, like a rich boy stuck in a cave. that would be funny, and it would make you use pokemon other than grass and water for the hikers.

June 17th, 2010, 07:13 AM
Maybe a soldier? You know one from the army?
It could have steel, electric or fighting type xD

ChaosNinjat
June 17th, 2010, 07:25 AM
I understand where people are coming from when they say Businessmen/women, as they seem very likely. I don't think they'll reintroduce gamblers, because that was an issue to do with kids and gambling was a more adult theme, and they weren't allowed to use it incase it influenced small children that played it (yeh, I'm sure there's a word for it, I just can't think of it.). Because of the same issues, I can't see them introducing soldiers either, cept obviously it's to do with war and violence, and not gambling. I know it's not like the soldiers are gonna be blowing stuff up, but you know what governments are like -.-'.

June 17th, 2010, 12:17 PM
I am all up for business men and women, but how about a female cop too? Since they have a female professor, why not a cop?

-a storekeeper like someone said earlier
-a doctor (maybe nurse joy)
-a professor (the professor aids I guess)
-female bikers lol
-a skydiver (the new birdkeeper)
-plumbers
-bandgeeks!
-coaches? (the athletes got to have coaches)
-anchor man
-pirates
-superhero nuts?
-fireman
-spaceman
-more executives

EDIT: instead of football like someone said earlier, why not soccer? Its a popular sport around the world. lol Soccer player Mark wants to battle!
