“Take that! Triple Finish!”
The Pokémon Trainer is a playable character in the game Super Smash Bros. Brawl. He is designed after Red, the main male character of Pokémon Red Version and Pokémon Green Version, Pokémon Blue Version, Pokémon Yellow Version, and their remakes, using the design of the character first seen in Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen Versions.
The Pokémon Trainer is the first playable Pokémon representative in the Super Smash Bros. series who is not an actual Pokémon. Though a selectable character, he is not an actual fighter, instead commanding either of his three Pokémon in the background of the stage, his team consisting of Squirtle, Ivysaur, and Charizard. The only move the trainer performs is Pokémon Change, which allows the player to switch out his three Pokémon at will throughout the battle. He also automatically switches Pokémon whenever one is KO'd. The Pokémon also run on a stamina system that weakens them as their stamina decreases the longer they are out on the field. Their Final Smash is Triple Finish, which has the trainer send out all three Pokémon at once to attack.
In the Subspace Emissary, he allies with Lucas who helps him find his Charizard and Ivysaur. The two also encounter Wario and a large Subspace Army robot, Galleom. They are saved from the robot's detonation by Meta Knight, and they team with him, Marth and Ike afterwards. When encountering a huge Subspace Army group on the foothills of a mountain (Meta Knight has left to retake the Halberd), they are saved by Mario and his team (Link, Yoshi, Pit, and Kirby).
In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, transforming during battle is omitted, so Charizard was made into a separate character, while the Pokémon Trainer, Squirtle, and Ivysaur are no longer playable. He, Squirtle, and Ivysaur appear as collectable trophies, however.
