Channeler (Trainer class)
From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
A Channeler (Japanese: きとうしShaman) is a type of Pokémon Trainer that have only appeared in the Generation I games and their remakes. They are generally depicted as Shinto priestesses. They scared out people from Pokémon Tower, and were possibly unwittingly helping Team Rocket make their base in the tower. Their strange behavior when challenging the player, and subsequent reaction after being defeated, seems to imply they were possessed by the ghosts they used while battling. In fact, some Channelers apologize after battle, saying "I was possessed!" when spoken to.
