A Guitarist (Japanese: ギタリスト Guitarist) is a type of Pokémon Trainer that debuted in Generation II games. They appear as young, blond men or black haired women, playing guitars.

They specialize in Electric-type Pokémon, as they play electric guitars. They may also use Pokémon associated with sound waves such as the Whismur evolutionary line in Generation III, and in Generation IV, ZubatDP or the Kricketot familyPt due to its relation with music. They may have some relation to the Rocker class introduced in Generation I, and the Musician class introduced in Generation V.

In the anime

Guitarist Billy Jo in the anime

May battled against Jeremy, who seems to be based on the Guitarist class in Weekend Warrior. However, he owned a Venusaur and a Butterfree, which are not Electric-type like the Guitarists use in the games. However, Butterfree are capable of using sound waves in the games, possibly referencing the Trainer class.

In Rocking the Virbank Gym! Part 1 and Rocking the Virbank Gym! Part 2, a Guitarist named Billy Jo appeared as a member of Roxie's rock band "Koffing and the Toxics".
