Pokémon Master

From Rebirpedia, the Pokémon Rebirth encyclopaedia.


Pokémon Master was a common term for describing Cho'moken-wielding Pokémon Trainers - used primarily during the Pokémopolitan era. These types of trainers were often considered masters in the field, as their abilities granted them a far closer bond with the Pokémon they befriended. Before Capture Devices of any sort were created, Pokémon Masters were also the only people who could fully tame Pokémon -through the use of Linking- and were therefore highly revered by others.


The term 'Master' has persisted in the Ocian language in reference to trainers up into recent years, but it is generally frowned upon by the Pokémon League as it perpetuates an attitude of enslavement, as opposed to the more cooperative relationship that they endorse.
