A Boss Trainer (Japanese: ボストレーナー Boss Trainer) is a type of Pokémon Trainer that first debuted in the Generation V games Pokémon Black and White 2. They are the leaders of each section of Black Tower (in Black City) or White Treehollow (in White Forest).

Boss Trainers do not have unique sprites like most other Trainer classes, instead appearing as other classes with the Boss Trainer title. They have Pokémon at slightly higher levels and more powerful Pokémon than the other Trainers in the Area; the Bosses of later areas even use legendary Pokémon. One notable Boss Trainer is Benga, Alder's grandson, who is the leader of the tenth and final section of the facility during the initial visit.

Trivia

  • Each Boss Trainer has Pokémon that are 3 levels higher and pay out PokémonDollar.png600 more than the previous Boss Trainer in Area order.
  • With the exception of Benga, the first letter of each Boss Trainer's name is in alphabetical order in each numbered Area order. In the Japanese version, their first letter is based on the katakana in vowel "a" column order instead.
