Area Leader (Trainer class)
From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
An Area Leader (Japanese: エリアリーダーArea Leader) is a type of Pokémon Trainer that first debuted in the Generation III games, appearing in Pokémon Colosseum and Pokémon XD. Each Area Leader rules over 10 sections of Mt. Battle and many specialize in a single Pokémon type. In this way, they are much like the closest thing Orre has to Gym Leaders. After defeating an Area Leader, the player receives Poké Coupons as a reward instead of Badges. There are 10 Area Leaders in all. The tenth one faced is known as a Mt.BtlMaster, the Area Leader of all of Mt. Battle.
