    Oh wow. Thanks for posting my translations here haha.
    Just some clarification since you seemed interested...
    妹思い can be translated as "thinks of his sister", but does not maintain the nuance of "longing" that the English version can also suggest. Instead its more like 'he takes care of her' or 'is a good brother to her'.
    A lot of translations become what we call "sterilised" between languages. Making it very difficult to make detailed theories if you're not bilingual. Hence I exist :)
    If there's anything else you would like clarified just let me know! (preferably at PokéJungle!)
    Ciao!

    So translations via Pokéjungle (posted in character discussion thread, but here's the GL-relevant parts):

    Translation Nugget 4: Homika


    Homika is one of the new Gym Leaders and is set to make an anime appearence on June the 14th. How it is that there can be new Gym Leaders entirely unrelated to the types of Gyms from Unova of two years ago is still a mystery! She has only two Pokémon suggesting that she will be an early Gym Leader, most likely the first. Upon further inspection she actually has freckles! Here’s what the Japanese site has to say about her:

    Homika

    “One of the new gym leaders.
    Her base guitar is her trademark, and her gym is actually a rock stage! She specialises in Poison Pokémon.
    “Here I go! I’ll make you go crazy!!” (lit: send your rationality flying)



    Translation Nugget 5: Shizui

    Shizui is one of the new Gym Leaders. He has a strange dialect which made many other translators run miles away from his quotes. Pictures show a sunny beach area meaning that the town his in may well be near Undella Town. There are wooden buildings and platforms built over lumps of sand and shallow waters similar to that seen to the right of Undella two years ago. What do you guys think, is this possible?
    Here is what the official Japanese site has to say about him.

    Shizui

    Yet another new Gym Leader. He’s cheerful and does things his own way but gives advice to the main character at times. He seems to specialise in water Pokémon.”
    “The strength of your conviction gives power to you and your Pokémon!”
    His other quotes include “I was out swimming with my Pokémon but it just felt so good that I floated out way too far”. “Listen up, you gotta have faith!”. “After all, the ocean excepts all rivers as it’s own…”
    People may find Homika more interesting, but it seems like Shizui will be the one playing a larger role.

    EDIT: I'm hoping the first gym isn't in the first city...

    ...I don't know, maybe that's actually a League-sanctioned Trainer school? The translation of the Rival's profile suggest he's living there but is not actually from there, so maybe its more prestigious?

    Pokémon Smash has confirmed that Homika has a Koffing when she appears in the anime.

    That's why we should pay more attention to small details. I guessed she'd have one based on her stage.

    We do need rematches.
    She only have two Pokémon, probably Koffing and Whirlipede, the fight will be so short =(

    Pokemon Smash has just aired and showed a walktrough. But they didn't show the main character going in the Trainer School. I think i would be right about trainer school beeing a Gym.

    That would be a nice call back to gen III since Roxanne's gym was technically on the campus of the Rustboro Trainer school.

    Yeah. And if Homika is the first leader, they would be describe her as the first gym leader, like Dento/Cilan was before release. I also would see the champion to be a rock type, and a teacher, since it's a school, like Roxanne was.

    Homika is most likely to be the second leader, imo...

    I honestly hate the new gym leaders, and a poison type gym battle sounds boring. poison types are my least facorite types. but the characteristic about the gym leader being a rock star-ish person sounds cool.

    the water type leader? I dunno. he sort of reminds me of Crasher Wake from gen 4 for some reason. I'd prefer Cress.

    I hope the other gym leaders stay the same.

    You got mail :3

    We barely know something about Shizui and he already have more personality and presence than Cress.

    The website also implies he'll be playing some sort of role outside of being a simple gym leader since it mentions him giving advice to the PC.

    Yeah. Cress is great but I am all for new, interesting characters that'll actually contribute to the story.

    His sister is alive and seemingly well...you see her with the Rival in the intro walkthrough on Smash.

    I'm guessing he wants to win the League for her to impress her simply or something.
