An Idol (Japanese: アイドル Idol) is a type of Pokémon Trainer that debuted in the Generation IV games. Outside the Battle Tower, there is only one Idol, Grace, who is found in the Jubilife City TV station in Diamond and Pearl and inside Oreburgh City's Pokémon Center after the player defeats Gym Leader Gardenia in Pokémon Platinum. Idols are teenage girls dressed up in elaborate pink pop star outfits with a microphone.

They mostly use cute Pokémon from the Fairy Egg Group, such as Pikachu and Clefairy, in battle.
