>Could someone seperate this into two tables? One for males and one for females? I tried it myself but couldn't work it out. - Zeta

Like that? ^_^ - Ferret 07:20, 5 May 2005 (UTC)

An excellent opportunity to demonstrate the usefulness of <gallery>. - 振霖T 08:05, 5 May 2005 (UTC)

Sadly, using a table with cells in a row for a gallery breaks the layout on smaller browser widths... --Meowth346, CSS Advocate

Ass trainer?? (in German) --HTMLCODER.exe@bulbapedia$_ /usr/bin/apache2 -k restart 18:14, 27 December 2009 (UTC)

So... Cool Trainer or Ace Trainer?

I know the German version (or at least presume as much with German's similarities to English) literally translates to Ace Trainer, and in DP they're known as Ace Trainers, but they've always been known as Cooltrainers... Now, I'm definitely trying to stop a move war before it starts here, so what shall we do with the page? Should it be known as Ace Trainer with a statement that prior to Generation IV they were known as Cool Trainers, or have it the other way around, with a statement that in Diamond and Pearl they were known as Ace Trainers?

Personally, I'd say keep them at Cool Trainer until we know that they'll never again be known as that, then change it, since we know for a fact that Nintendo of America's made some pretty big errors in their localization (Charine, anyone?). --TTEchidna 17:09, 7 May 2007 (UTC)

I say in this instance, we go with the most up-to-date names. Particularly since in DP, they seem to have cleaned up their translation, such as with the lack of NOUNS IN ALL CAPS and with better phrasing in battle dialogue. --Pie ~ 17:28, 7 May 2007 (UTC)

In the original games, they are called Jr. Trainers so we should include that name. --1-Up 22:17, 6 August 2007 (UTC)

You're thinking of Campers and Picnickers. --Shiningpikablu252 00:09, 7 August 2007 (UTC)

If we changed Cue Ball to Roughneck, Cool Trainer should be moved to Ace Trainer. Satosuke 15:33, 8 October 2008 (UTC)

I think it should be moved to Ace Trainer. For one thing, it's a more accurate translation of the Japanese Elite Trainer. --Evice 21:10, 28 August 2009 (UTC)
If in HGSS they stay as Aces, it's moving. TTEchidna 06:54, 20 October 2009 (UTC)
They're aces in HGSS. Move? CuboneKing 04:57, 31 March 2010 (UTC)

Possibly Rockets?

Is it me, or do the Generation I sprites look similar to Rockets but without the unifrom? Seth Graystone 22:48, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

Slightly. It's the whip that does it. But we generaly don't incorporate "X looks like Y" trivia. — THE TROM — 22:53, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

PBR

Should we include Cool Boy and Cool Girl PBR sprites? I'd do it myself but I don't know the png file. - unsigned comment from Giratina's Embodiment (talkcontribs) 20:37, 16 August 2009 (UTC)


Move!

I think we should move Cool Trainers to Ace Trainers because I want it to be like about NOW! Not THEN, NOW! Anyone agrees? *Press button "Yay" while Obama press "Nay"* --The Bulb's Master 23:40, 25 August 2009 (UTC)

A) What? B) Don't bring politics into it. I think we should wait to see if they keep the Ace Trainer renaming, then decide what to do later. The Dark Fiddler - You enter a poorly lit room... 23:58, 25 August 2009 (UTC)
As I said in another section, I think it should be moved to Ace Trainer, and that it's a more accurate translation of the Japanese name for the class. I also second leaving politics out of this, because politics don't belong on a wiki about Pokémon. --Evice 21:11, 28 August 2009 (UTC)
They were called Cool Trainers the last time we went to Johto. The name may not change. Give it a week or so until the release date. That's what Mister Fiddler was insinuating. —darklordtrom 04:16, 29 August 2009 (UTC)

Lists

Anyone going to do the listing for Cooltrainers & their Pokemon in each game, like we did some of the other Trainer classes? Because if anyone does, I'd be glad to help. Prince Marx 15:19, 11 September 2009 (UTC)

Name issue

Was it fixed in Platinum? Ace Trainer, I mean. ht14 02:19, 3 October 2009 (UTC)

Nope, still aces. TTEchidna 06:54, 20 October 2009 (UTC)

TMs notable?

So, I encountered an Ace Trainer on Route 210 (Alyssa, I believe?) who had an Aipom with Water Pulse [clarification: in Platinum]. I don't know if other Cool Trainers have access to TMs, or even if other (non-Gym Leader, etc.) classes can have TM moves on their Pokémon - so is this notable? Anaphysik 06:38, 27 February 2010 (UTC)

Not really... CuboneKing 02:32, 28 February 2010 (UTC)

As a Player

I know the player can have a Trainer Class (for their GTS appearance and such), but how do you become an Ace Trainer? I've beaten the Pokémon League, but I still appear as a Rich Boy. --Nathan2055talk 19:39, 24 February 2011 (UTC)

In which games? In the Gen IV games there's someone you can talk to in the Pokémon Center of the city with the first gym who will change it. Although as far as I can recall, you only get to choose from four trainer classes unless you mix records. Which four depends on your Trainer ID number. Werdnae (talk) 04:44, 25 February 2011 (UTC)
Generation IV. Does this mean some players have the option to be an Ace Trainer? I've seen a lot of people that are Ace Trainers, more than other classes. --Nathan2055talk 20:12, 25 February 2011 (UTC)
Some do. I'm sure I saw a list or something similar describing which ID numbers get which trainer classes to choose from at one point, but I can't find it at the moment. IIRC, mixing records with someone who can be an Ace Trainer should also give you the option to be one. Werdnae (talk) 04:13, 26 February 2011 (UTC)
OK, thank you. --Nathan2055talk 22:45, 26 February 2011 (UTC)

D/P/Pt Classification

Does anyone else think we should label the trainers from D/P/Pt that have the green hair and the brown clothes "Forest" or something? We call the ones with the furry coats snow... uNsUsPeCtInG fOoL (talk) 17:43, 22 January 2013 (UTC)

Not all non-snow Aces appear in forests, though. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 17:45, 22 January 2013 (UTC)

X and Y VS "sprite"

VSAce Trainer M.pngVSAce Trainer F.png

This pretty much goes for all trainer classes available in Pokémon X and Y, but how exactly should we use trainer "sprites" like these on their own page? I guess, technically they aren't sprites anymore, but that's beyond the point. ----NateVirus(Talk|Contributions) 07:18, 16 November 2013 (UTC)

Ace Trainer/ Bird Keeper

This probably is not important, but I wanted to point out that the Gen IV Ace Trainer overworld sprite is the same as the Gen IV overworld sprite for the female Bird Keeper. RapidashRocks524 (talk) 03:45, 4 October 2014 (UTC)
