Interviewers (Japanese: インタビュアー Interviewers) is a type of Double-Battling Pokémon Trainer class that first debuted in the Generation III games. The pair is made up of a Reporter and a Cameraman. In Generation IV, Reporters and Cameramen can be battled alone, while in Generation III they appear only in pairs as Interviewers.

In Generation III, "Interviewer" specifically refers to Gabby and Ty, who can be battled on Routes 111, 118 and 120. In Generation IV, it specifically refers to Roxy and Oli, who can be battled in Jubilife TV headquarters in Diamond and Pearl and various Pokémon Centers around Sinnoh in Platinum.

In Generation III, they were known as Interviewer, which made it sound as though only Gabby belonged to the class; however, in English versions of the Generation IV games, they are correctly known as Interviewers.
