A Reporter (Japanese: レポーター Reporter) is a type of Pokémon Trainer that first debuted in the Generation IV games. They are young women working as television reporters.

Reporters are female counterparts of Cameramen. When paired with Cameramen in Double Battles, they are called interviewers; in Generation III, they are only battled as such.

They specialize in Flying and Electric-type Pokémon.
