Moria, a female Sky Trainer in the anime

A female Sky Trainer named Moria appeared in Battles in the Sky!, commanding a Talonflame. At the beginning of the episode, she was seen defeating a male Sky Trainer using a Skarmory. Later she also battled Ash twice. In the first battle, her Talonflame took a rather easy victory over Ash's Hawlucha, while in the second battle, Ash's Fletchling evolved into a Fletchinder and learned Flame Charge in the middle of the match, resulting in Ash's victory.

A couple of other, unnamed Sky Trainers also appeared in the Sky Battle Center where Ash and his friends practiced the basics of Sky Battles.

A Sky Trainer appeared in Getting a Jump on the Competition!, participating in the Pokémon Sled Jump Games on Mount Lanakila with an Emolga.

In the anime, it is shown that Sky Trainers use their flying suits to fly alongside their Pokémon during Sky Battles.

Y as a Sky Trainer in Pokémon Adventures

Pokémon Adventures

Y, who was first introduced in An X-cuse to Come Out and Play, is training to become a Sky Trainer. She chose this career path out of irritation when people expected her to follow in her mother's footsteps and become a Rhyhorn Racer, deciding to do the exact opposite thing and learn to fly.

Later, it is revealed that there was a Sky Trainer school in Vaniville Town, where Y studied at along with her senior, Yvette, who had collected 18 of the Vivillon patterns.
