A Waiter (Japanese: ウエーターWaiter) is a type of Pokémon Trainer that first debuted in the Generation IV games. They are generally depicted as young men in typical waiter clothing. They are the male counterpart of Waitresses. They use a variety of Pokémon but tend towards Normal types.
In the Generation IV games, Trainers from the Waiter class are generally rare and those that want to battle can be only be found in the Battle Tower and the Battle Frontier. There are no other Trainers from the Waiter class outside this place that will challenge the player to a battle.
