I like it, tough it would be interesting if it had game color schemes based on most recent or first appearance. --ルレ 05:02, 2 May 2010 (UTC)


As you might have noticed, I've been the one who's been adding this template to the trainer class pages. If I could suggest a few things...

  • There should be "image2" and "size2" parameters for use with dual-gendered classes with no artwork avaible, such as Swimmer and Triathlete.
  • The switch for gender counterpart should not be restricted to just "male only" and "female only"; it should read {{#switch: {{{gender|Both}}}|Male only|Male=Female|Female only|Female=Male}}.
  • Also, have the C in Counterpart capitalized if gender=Both; This allows for inclusion of cases that aren't strictly gender-related, such as the Skier and Boarder

I think there should be a standard image class used for all Trainer classes. Some I've been seeing are TCG, some anime, and some game sprites--SandmanDP 20:27, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

Sugimori art is prefered. However Sugimori art hasn't been released for many of the trainer classes. In the absence of that we use whatever is available. Not all trainer classes have been featured in any particular media except games, and due to their small size sprites are only used where necessary. Werdnae (talk) 02:39, 16 January 2012 (UTC)
Then there should be a uniform Plan A (Sugimori) and a uniform Plan B (whatever that shall be)--SandmanDP 02:54, 16 January 2012 (UTC)
I would say Game art > TCG Art > Anime/Manga caps > Latest sprite. - Chosen of Mana 05:46, 16 January 2012 (UTC)
That looks like a good proposal to me. Werdnae (talk) 06:20, 16 January 2012 (UTC)
