From what I understand, "Trainer fic" is the term given to any Pokemon fic that follows the basic life of a Pokemon trainer. They actively train Pokemon. That's what they do. Given what you mentioned of your plot, I would call it a trainer fic. But just as long as you put a unique spin on it and don't simply follow a "beat Gyms, save world" with the trainer only having little to no personality (or my favorite personality: the friendly but loner cool kid) and the Pokemon only being treated like tools of war.
So it's not like we'll say "It's a trainer fic! Don't write it!" Instead, we'll say that you should still write your fic so we can see your own personal take on the genre.
