The in-game VS. Artwork of a Male Pokémon Breeder that appears in Pokémon X and Y.

Pokémon Breeder is a Trainer Class introduced in Generation III. They are trainers who nurse Pokémon from birth and guide their growth. They also breed Pokémon to pass on specific traits that they want the offspring to have and try to understand how Pokémon learn and grow. Usually, a breeder carries no more than four Pokémon, although rematched Breeders can have more. A breeder is somewhat similar to a Doctor and a Collector.

In Generation III, their outfits are red but over time, the outfits are changed into green instead. In Generation V, they uniforms are changed to part red, part green. In manga, Pokémon Breeder considered as a specialty of a certain trainer, the one that possesses this ability is Gold.

  • In FireRed and LeafGreen, there is no male breeder.
  • The male breeders weren't holding buckets until Generation IV, but only the female was holding a bucket in Generation V.
  • Breeders have Pokémon with low level than other trainers present in the region.
    • It might be due to fact that their Pokémon are freshly egg hatched.
