    Okay fine, maybe dark isn't the right word. It would just feel...out of place, for some reason.

    Default Re: Revealed Gym Leaders Thread: Nay or Yay?

    Is it bad that I laughed at "Blaquaman"?.

    Seriously though, I'm guessing that Homika is the second Gym Leader, because Venipede doesn't evolve into Whirlipede until level 22 (and after her guitar, if she only has a Venipede I'll be disappointed). Sure, she could use a Scolipede and be the third Gym Leader, but I don't think two Pokémon is enough for a third Gym Leader.

    Personally, I expect that the majority of the gyms will be the same as in BW - according to the map, the only areas that are covered up that had gyms are Striaton City and Nacrene City, so we have their replacements already. Then while the gyms will probably stay in the same location, I imagine we might see another leader change or two (such as Iris becoming the Opelucid Gym Leader in Black as well).

    Don't you see the irony here? Half black, half white?.

    I also agree with The Outrage, I don't get why people would hate him, judging by design I already like him better than Wallace and Juan combined...

    I don't get why people like the new poison leader though, but that could be because she's a poison leader.

    In the Rival Vs. screen, you can see that you'll battle him on top of the lookout platform in Hiougi City. That's probably the first battle!

    looks like he spent too much at the tanning bed. Stupid Sexy Shizui.
    His pants look kinda Gyarados-themed, so I hope Magikarp makes a return.

    I liked Homika. Rocker girl with freckles and a Scolipede guitar. And she's left-handed (don't ask why, but I think that makes her more special in a way)

    Half-Nay for Shizui, Yay for Homika.

    I'm hoping that the PC and Rival are graduates from Trainer School. It would be a fairly new set-up as to why they go on their journey.

    I'm also thinking they're 13-14 years old. I know they look younger than Hilbert and Hilda but Caitlin looked that young at 14. I also assumed Silver was around that age given a ten year old was mistaken as him three years earlier (and he looked older than Ethan).

    Also, I've made a commentary on nearly everyone else's attire. Anyone notice that Rival's pants suddenly get tight near the bottom of his legs? It's almost as if he's also wearing shorts and tights, except he wore the tights on the outside. And judging by the PC and Rival character's clothes...Brendan's a trend setter.

    Yeah, I can't wrap my head around the rival's pants, they go from baggy to tight. If they were baggy throughout though, hot damn. Love his purple c-gear, the best color for one ever. The girl also has yellow ones based on her short/skirt/thing so that's cool I guess. The boy though, gotta say its catching on. That stripe on the leggings further cements the theory of it being a swimsuit on the inside, as its the same stripe as Shizui's.

    I keep getting the ninja pants vibe from the Rival's pants. I kinda hope the PCs are wearing swimsuits, and that it somehow comes into play in-game, like maybe your outfit changes while surfing or something equally trivial, lol.

    That, or they just wanted to get silly with the boys outfit. Although those sunvisors, combined with a wetsuit/bikini, can't really complain if they do it for the dive portions. And yeah, Ninja was the first thing I thought about the guy.

    This just hit me - how many Gym Leaders changed between RGBY/FRLG and HGSS? Only two - Janine and Blue replaced Koga and Giovanni.

    What if these games are trying to emulate that and these two new Gym Leaders are the other two new ones we see?

    The thing is, those were replacements within the cities. I'm starting to think that the Unova League is structured very differently from the Japan-based region leagues. They give you a choice on which Elite 4 to battle, so why not have more than 8 gym leaders and give a choice on who to battle there as well? Homika's probably an early gym meaning she's in that South West portion. There's nothing to suggest that area didn't always have a gym leader.

    The Trainer school in Hyougi City has the same statues as the Gyms in BW & BW2 (Shizui's gym has them).
    img_story_03.jpg => Hyougi's Trainer school
    9-d000d6a370.png => All BW's gym has them outside and ONLY GYMS.
    8-44edee1394.png => Striaton's Trainer school DOESN'T have them.

    So Hyougi City HAS A GYM. Trainer School IS the Gym, like striaton's gym was a RESTAURANT.

    Interesting.

    Perhaps Homika's gym isn't the first, but the second (She have only two Pokémon, but Lenora also had only two in BW)

    From Pokéjungle (only kept the part relevant to Character discussion; you can click the link if you want to see the rest):

    Quote Originally Posted by Pokéjungle

    As we reported yesterday, Achroma’s (Akuroma) name most likely comes from “Achromatic”. Meaning ‘colourless’.
    Here is what the official site has to say about the mysterious researcher who is going to play an unknown major role in the events of BW2:

    Achroma
    A figure of mystery who you can’t quite put your finger on.
    He is studying the secrets behind a Pokémon’s strength.
    Along the journey, he also helps out the protagonist from time to time.
    “What is it that draws out a Pokémon’s strength?”


    His other quotes include “Oh how rude of me! I am Achroma, a scientist” and “With the tool that I created that ‘activates’ Pokémon…”



    Translation Nugget 3: The Rival


    We’ve known since the CoroCoro leaks that the rival character has strong thoughts on a “Pokémon’s strength”. Does this coincide with Achroma’s research somehow? The site is a reason behind this, and trails out slowly when talking about the rival’s sister. Is the rival’s quest for strong Pokémon somehow related to an experience he has had involving his sister? Just where is his sister now? Is it a character we already know or someone missing?
    The site has this to say about him:

    Rival
    “A childhood friend to the main character who lives in Hiougi City”. (Notice it says only “live” and not “from” which is less common in Japanese) It seems there is a reason behind his strong feelings towards Pokémon and Pokémon battles.
    He also has a caring side towards his little sister…”



    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)
    I think an interesting thing to note here is the Rival living in Hiougi City, rather than from. Perhaps the Trainer school is a boarding school? If that's the case, that's probably why he thinks about his sister a lot. Though the translation in this line suggests that nothing's really wrong with his sister (like "keeping her in his thoughts" did to me) but simply that he cares for her.

    There's supposed to be one more translation nugget which I assume is Shizui.

    EDIT: Evidently there's more than 5, but I think this one is the last of the character discussions:

    Quote Originally Posted by Pokéjungle

    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.

    ShizuiYet 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…”

    Interesting notes:
    - Strange dialect (Hey, maybe he is Jersey Shore :P)
    - I see the Pokejungle translators had the same idea as I did about Undella Town
    - "Gives advice to the main character at times" suggest he plays a larger role than simple gym leader.

    THEORY TIME

    Achroma's quote: “What is it that draws out a Pokémon’s strength?”
    Shizui's quote: The strength of your conviction gives power to you and your Pokémon!"

    I'm really hoping that last part isn't just some lame dribble because we've seen in Nobunaga's Ambition that the Warlords can assist Pokemon with their own powers. What if the relationship between trainer and Pokemon play a larger role in battle mechanics now past evolution and Return/Frustration?
