An Ace Trainer (Japanese: エリートトレーナー Elite Trainer) is a type of Pokémon Trainer that debuted in the Generation I games. They are depicted as teens or young adults and can be male or female. The title Ace Trainer is used in Generation IV and onward; prior to this, the Trainer class was known as Cooltrainer.

They are Trainers who frequently travel around the world to meet new Trainers and take part in Pokémon League competitions. In Generation I, the Cooltrainers are shown to be carrying whips, which were also used by Team Rocket Grunts at the time. In Generation II onward, they no longer carry whips.

They generally use strong and evolved Pokémon, have a diversified and balanced party, and their artificial intelligence is generally very good compared to other Trainer classes in their games. Like Gym Leaders, they often have healing items, and they also use type advantages to their advantage. They are usually seen during the mid to last part of the game in Victory Road, as they are presumably on their way to challenge the Elite Four. In the Battle Subway, some of them employ a set strategy revolving around the Ability Intimidate. In Generation VI's Battle Maison, they have unspecialized teams that may occasionally include Latias or Latios.

When paired together in Double Battles, they are called Cool Couples in Generation III, Double Teams in Generation IV, and Ace Duos in Generations VI and VII. In addition, a duo of a male Ace Trainer and a male Veteran is called Master & Apprentice.

In the Generation IV games taking place in Sinnoh, Ace Trainers have two sets of sprites, with one set of Ace Trainers dressed warmly for the blizzards near Snowpoint City.

In Black and White, some will give out PP Ups when defeated.

In Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, some Ace Trainers appear on top of Surfing Pokémon across Hoenn's water routes.

In Sun, Moon, Ultra Sun, and Ultra Moon, Ace Trainers keep their Pokémon in Ultra Balls. In addition, certain Ace Trainers possess Z-Rings or Z-Power Rings.

In Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!, Ace Trainers will award five Ultra Balls along with prize money upon being defeated, except for Gym Trainers and Master Trainers.
