Gangster
Physical description: Wears a fedora and sunglasses and dark clothing. Females wear suits as well as men. Gives out a lot of money when defeated.
Specialty: Dog pokemon
Location: Roads and cities
We already have Roughneck, Punk Guy, and Punk Girl in 5th and 6th gen, I don't really see the point.
But these give out extra money! I also forgot to put that they only battle Double and Triple battles.
Don't Roughnecks also specialize in Triple Battles? Plus, all the other "bad guy" classes are based off of biker gangs. I'm assuming you meant like Mafia Gangsters? Which would've been an awesome class to have in Castelia (based off of NYC, which is notorious for its Mafia wars)
 
Nah, not possible.

I've had this idea way back...

Golfer
Looks like your average golfer you might see on TV. Maybe even has a stupid plaid hat. Holds a golf club, looks like he's about to swing at a Pokeball on the ground.
Specializes in either Grass or Normal types, or could just use local Pokemon.
Usually found at... golf courses, duh. Wide-open fields and hills could work too.

I'm pretty sure Roughnecks have existed since Gen III...

What would be cool would be if you could choose your class at the start of or during the game.
For example:
Dragon Tamer
Dragon-type pokemon gain 5% more xp
Dragon-type pokemon have 5% increased catch rate
Cape customization item added

Pokemon Breeder
Eggs hatch 20% faster
Pokemon below lvl 10 gain 100% more xp
Apron customization item added

Biker
10% increased speed when riding your bike
Poison type pokemon have 5% increased catch rate
Leather Jacket customization item added

Rocker
Electric-type pokemon gain 5% more xp
Electric-type pokemon have 5% increased catch rate
Guitar customization item added


Etc.

At least, I think that would be funny.

Rescuer

I'd love to see an orchestra of trainer classes! Perhaps it would be too much, though. It just would be cool to see a trainer type representing each type of instrument in the orchestra, at least (brass, woodwind, percussion, strings, maybe piano).

I can't lie, I was kind of saddened to play through X and see no reference whatsoever to Europe's rich tradition of classical music.

I dot know if someone put this ideas before:

Crazy Man/Woman of the cats (Yes like the character from the simpsons)
This trainer wear an outfith that remembers a homeless people, they have an large barb (if the trainer is male) and large white hair at shoulder height, they can be found in the big cities, their team consist in cat-shaped pokemons: Purrloin, Mewth, Skitty, etc, etc.

Time Traveler
This trainer wear both ancient and futuristic accesories, in their qoutes the say he can travel across time but Is that true? or he only are saying lies? Their team have pokemon for all regions and some of their pokemons have their sprite changed to first, second, third generation.
