A Baron (Japanese: バロン Baron) is a type of Pokémon Trainer that debuted in Generation VI. This Trainer class is a title of nobility, granted in the Battle Chateau, and Trainers with this class only appear there. Baron is the lowest rank of nobility for males, ranking below Viscount. Its counterpart for females is Baroness.

The male player character is granted the title of Baron upon first visiting the Battle Chateau. All opponent Barons use parties of one Pokémon at level 15 (if no Writ of Challenge is active).

Appearance

Barons can appear as a Rich Boy, a Monsieur or a Butler.

In XY020, Ash and his friends met brothers Nikola and Tesla, the first of whom had achieved the rank of Baron. His rank was upgraded into Viscount after he defeated another Baron-ranked Trainer, Farrell, in a battle. Later, Ash was also granted with the Baron rank after he had defeated Tesla in a battle.
