A Battle Girl (Japanese: バトルガール Battle Girl) is a type of Pokémon Trainer that first debuted in the Generation III games. They are generally depicted as young women, dressed in belly baring crop tops, or traditional Kung Fu uniforms in Black and White, and striking a fighting pose.

Gyms and battle facilities aside, they use Fighting-type Pokémon exclusively. In the Battle Subway, they specialize in Fighting-, Fire-, and Steel-type Pokémon.

The character Shauna from the episodes A Meditite Fight! and Just One of the Geysers is based on this class.

In general, their male counterparts appear to be Black Belts. In Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen, a nearly identical sort of Trainer called Crush Girl (Japanese: かくとうむすめ Fighting Girl) appeared.

Battle Girl's Kirlia
Kirlia
Kirlia was the first revealed Pokémon the Battle Girl sent out. It managed to put Hareta's Misdreavus to sleep and somehow placed Hareta to sleep which made the audience laugh at him. The outcome of the battle was unknown as it was not shown whether or not Kirlia was able to knock out Misdreavus.

Kirlia's only known move is Hypnosis.
