A Battle Girl (Japanese: バトルガール Battle Girl) is a type of Pokémon Trainer that debuted in the Generation III games. They are generally depicted as young girls or young women, dressed in midriff-baring crop tops and shorts, traditional Kung Fu uniforms in Black and White, or blue karate gis in X and Y, and striking a fighting pose.

Gyms and battle facilities aside, they use Fighting-type Pokémon exclusively. In the Battle Subway, they specialize in Fighting-, Fire-, and Steel-type Pokémon. In the Battle Maison, they specialize in Fighting-, Fire-, and Rock-type Pokémon.

The character Shauna from the episodes A Meditite Fight! and Just One of the Geysers is based on this class.

In general, their male counterparts appear to be Black Belts. In Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen, a nearly identical sort of Trainer called Crush Girl (Japanese: かくとうむすめ Fighting Girl) appeared.

Computer technician Bebe uses the Battle Girl's sprite, which seems to have inspired her design in the TCG.
