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).
