A Battle Girl (Japanese: バトルガール Battle Girl) is a type of Pokémon Trainer that first debuted in the Generation III games. They are generally depicted as young girls or young women, dressed in belly baring crop tops, traditional Kung Fu uniforms in Black and White, or blue karate gis in X and Y, and striking a fighting pose.

Gyms and battle facilities aside, they use Fighting-type Pokémon exclusively. In the Battle Subway, they specialize in Fighting-, Fire-, and Steel-type Pokémon. In the Battle Maison, they specialize in Fighting-, Fire-, and Rock-type Pokémon.

The character Shauna from the episodes A Meditite Fight! and Just One of the Geysers is based on this class.

In general, their male counterparts appear to be Black Belts. In Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen, a nearly identical sort of Trainer called Crush Girl (Japanese: かくとうむすめ Fighting Girl) appeared.
