Riley (Japanese: ゲン Gen) is a Pokémon Trainer from Sinnoh. He specializes in Pokémon with high Attack.

In the games

Riley is one of five Trainers who can join with the main character during an event in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl. Later, he can join the player in competition at Sinnoh's Battle Tower and, in Pokémon Platinum, can be battled at the Battleground after the Stark Mountain subquest. All of his Pokémon excel in the Attack stat. He also appears in HeartGold and SoulSilver in a similar capacity.

Riley's first appearance in Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum is at Iron Island. He helps the player to get through the deep mines on the island, and assists in the defeat of some Team Galactic grunts. After the Grunts have been defeated, Riley offers the player a Pokémon Egg that eventually hatches into a Riolu. In Platinum, he will give the player HM04 (Strength) before he or she enters Iron Island's cave.

Apparently, Byron had previously asked Riley to become a Gym Leader, though Riley politely refused, saying that Byron's son Roark should be considered first.

Riley mentioned to the Team Galactic members that Iron Island actually belonged to him, suggesting he may be the owner of the mines and someone else reopened the island as a place for wild Pokémon to live as well as a place for people to train.
