Trainer list

Pokémon Black/White

These Trainers can only be battled on Wednesdays and Saturdays.


  • In a real game of American football, a Linebacker would never use a 3-point stance and no player would use a closed fist. Using a closed fist during a game could potentially disqualify them from participating.
