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, they use version-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.

Lawrence III

Lawrence III called himself a collector. While his design is different from that of the at the time undesigned and unintroduced Trainer class, he shares the common interest in rare Pokémon. His image song is titled I am a Collector.

In the manga

In the Pokémon Diamond and Pearl Adventure! manga

In Find Munchlax!!, a Collector is one of the three Trainers searching for Munchlax. He claims that all Collectors dream about Munchlax due to its extreme rarity, and he uses honey to lure it out.
