So in the older episodes of the anime there are pokemon poachers, as well as pokemon trainers. But really what's the difference? They both catch the pokemon, and sometimes they both sell them. There's really no difference except one uses pokeballs and the other doesnt. What do you guys think are the differences?

Poachers capture the pokemon, and only care about the money. Pokemon trainers use pokemon for battles where both the pokemon and trainer bond. In the anime at least, most trainers care for their pokemon.

Pokemon trainers can't sell pokemon. At least, I'd think it'd be outlawed considering their whole lifestyle revolves around them.

The thing is, poachers are barely, if ever, mentioned in the games. Likewise, the Game Corner is never mentioned in the anime. Look at what J does: she steals the 'mons from Trainers and puts them in some sort of carbonite freezer-esque stand and sells them.

Well I always thought that the poachers would catch the pokemon and sell them to the gamecorner, not a proven fact but that's where I got that poachers sold them. Then in the pokemon center next to mt. moon theres a trainer selling a magikarp so that shows trainers sell them to. But then again...it's a magikarp. xD

In my mind a Pokemon Poacher is someone who captures Pokemon and uses them as tools, profit, or personal gain alone. The average Pokemon Trainer captures Pokemon and raises it to win battles, contests, competitions, or to collect them for the Pokedex. Pokemon trainers can release them into to wild, but selling them wouldn't be Pokemon Trainer like. A Pokemon trainer has to care for their Pokemon in order for it to grow stronger, so it would be pointless to be a Pokemon trainer that just captures and sells Pokemon, and by that means the person isn't even a trainer at all and just a Poacher.

Team Rocket for example, are Pokemon Poachers. They provide the Pokemon in the Celadon game corner, probably by stealing/poaching and then by mass breeding to make a profit (Remember that the game corner in Celadon is run by Team Rocket).
