A Triathlete (Japanese: トライアスリート Triathlete) is a type of Pokémon Trainer that first debuted in the Generation III games. They come in male and female versions, and are generally men and women in sunglasses and skin-tight workout clothing. The cycling Triathletes seem to be the R/S/E equivalent of Bikers and Cyclists, the running Triathletes seem to complement that of Joggers, and the swimming Triathletes are similar to Swimmers, although actual Swimmers do also appear in the game.

Triathletes come in three different varieties, and each type uses different Pokémon:
