That's not Elesa. Why has everyone been saying its her? I haven't looked in the BW2 thread, so excuse me if this has already been established, but I am sure that this isn't Elesa. It could be a relation because there is a strong resemblance, but I'm sure that its not her.

    Why would they replace Elesa with someone identical?

    Her twin sister was obviously jealous of her fame, so she decided to do something about her after the Plasma incident. And after two years, she's still able to fool her fanbase in the game and in real life.

    And can you tell exactly why it isn't her? Because just because you say so doesn't make it true.

    "Not much is known about the Gym Leader that gives you the Bolt Badge, but she's shown on a stage in the promotional video trailer and has both an Emolga and a Zebstrika — like her predecessor, Elesa. While her eye color and hair are different than Elesa's, they do bear a lot of resemblance to each other, so it is possible they are related."

    And Jasmine had different eye color in GSC compared to HGSS. So what? It's animation, they take liberties.

    Using the hair as an example is not a good argument though, since people can change both the color and the look over two years.

    And she has the exact same pokémon. Besides the eye color, you have no evidence, and even then it's rather weak.

    She got special contact lenses, she dyed her hair, she got extensions, she got a new set of headgear.

    Elesa's supposed to be fashionable, correct? Maybe the styles changed, and she changed with it.

    thats fine with me, weak evidence is enough. In the anime, Elesa also has a Tynamo and in the game she has another Emolga. So, this doesn't match either of her teams.

    It is only a hunch, I can't confirm that it isn't Elesa. But I think thats rather obvious.

    Why would they include her in the video if it is just Elesa? All of the old characters that were included in that video had played part in the storyline, whilst Elesa is just a gym leader to be battled. It didn't seem to indicate that this character really had much in the storyline, so the only reason that I see for her to be there is because she is new.

    I don't think it's Elesa either, to be honest.

    The new person (in my opinion) got a fuller figure. Black hair. Different eyes. Weirder outfit. It doesn't feel like her.

    I'm thinking it's her sister or something.

    Yes, it doesn't feel like her! She looks fiercer. It doesn't look the kind of pose Elesa would do. Elesa isn't that showy, I don't think she would rip off a jacket like that. The expression doesn't seem like her.

    If you say that she got contacts, new hair and everything, then that really means that lots and lots of girls in the past in Pokemon could be Elesa. The reason she looks identical is because anime characters don't have many distinguishing features, which is why they use wacky hair and everything. One thing characters have different is the head shape, and I think this girl has a much smoother jaw compared to Elesa. Elesa's head has relatively prominent straight lines before it turns into the jaw.

    I can't even tell what here eye color is by just looking at the image.....

    I say its Elesa as all evidence points to her (Pokémon, attire color, leader status)

    I was going to say that she just changed because it's now the Spring/Summer fashion season rather than the Fall/Winter one, then I remembered that this generation has seasons so this remark doesn't completely work.

    On the YouTube video there are credits listed. One of the names listed is Elesa (well, Kamiture since it's in Japanese).

    This Gym Leader also has the personality and appearance of Elesa, her Pokémon and a giant Bolt Badge on the screen behind her.

    Remember that Elesa is a model. Part of her work involves changing drastically her appearance (and that means style, mannerisms... not simply changing hair and clothes) to fit a fashion theme.

    Also yes, Miyuki Sawashiro is credited as カミツレ (Kamitsure, Elesa), so this is all moot anyway.

    She just looks older, is all. Like she put some weight on and got serious.

    Its Elesa, she simply changed her appearance in the 2 years that passed between BW and B2W2.

    From the official video's description:
    カミツレ (Kamiture) ・・・ 沢城 みゆき (Miyuki Sawashiro)

    Case closed.

    Marriland isn't an official source >_>

    Also, given that the only "evidence" you have going is eye colour (really, she's a model, its not that hard to think she changes hair styles...and her hair is already similar):



    So her eye colour didn't even change. Also, as for why she was shown: fan service and likely being the most changed gym leader.

    Saying that gym leader is not Elesa is like saying Mr. L is not Luigi.
