A Collector (Japanese: ポケモンコレクター Pokémon Collector) is a type of Pokémon Trainer that first debuted in the Generation III games. They are generally depicted as nerdy young men carrying many Poké Balls.

In Generation III and VI, they use game-exclusive Pokémon. In Diamond and Pearl, they use three Pokémon of the same species, while in Platinum they use rare Pokémon such as Togetic or Feebas. They often talk about how they wish to catch rare Pokémon.

In Generation I, one of Bill's titles was the Collector.
