    I don't think Blue was really challenging. Cynthia was't hard not only because of variety, but because every single one of her Pokémon have 31 IVs and she have one of the most overpowered Pokémon in her team (Garchomp). But yeah, I think champions shouldn't focus on a single type, though I think the champion having at least three Pokémon of one type, like Alder have, is really nice.

    It's just kind of a recurring thing in Pokemon games to have Dragon-type gym leaders either as the 7th or the 8th gym, so why not change things around a bit, yeah? I'd also appreciate it if Grass was like the 6th gym, but that's just me. xD;
    There's definitely been some annoying gym patterns in the last few games, I'd like the gym lineup to be more like this.

    Apparently the new issue of CoroCoro reveals a new Gym Leader, according to Serebii. Here is a scan:


    I think she looks pretty damn cool.

    What's she doing not wearing elbow and knee pads. What a bad role model for kids.

    I've seen a lot of people guess normal probably just because she's got a mostly white palate. My first thought was also fighting along the lines of roller derby. Interesting to see what speed oriented pokemon she'll use.

    The light brown-colored patterns on her skates and clothing seem to suggest she is a Fighting-type gym leader. I wonder if her gym puzzle will involve your roller skates.

    She looks like a Fighting gym leader to me. She has the "energetic" quality about her. I was trying to figure out which Pokemon her helmet is going to be based on and Joshawott pointed out it looks like Mienshao. So yeah, I personally think Fighting.

    Fighting would be nice. It is about time for another female Fighting-type specialist.

    Seeing as this gym leader knows the secret to Mega Evolutions, I wonder if she'll use any in her gym battle.

    Well her name is コルニ, which means Koruni (コ=ko, ル=ru, ニ=ni), that is as much as we know. I tried some google translate stuff, and as far as I know ニ means ni which means two. I didn't get anything worthy with google translating runi (ルニ) but I did get col from koru (コル). Looking for wikipedia pages for '' col '' you are redirected here. '' A col in the geographic (as opposed to meteorological) sense is a geomorphological term referring to the lowest point on a mountain ridge between two peaks. '' So something to do with mountains, blah blah.

    But then again, if I google コル, I get redirected here. It has something to do with a spiral I guess, google translate gives this: Koru or protocol and (koru), it is the word of Maori that points to the sprout of fern spiral not completely deployed yet. AND HERE IS THE INTERESTING PART. It is a symbol of "New", "growth", "power" and "peace", it is preferred as a motif of tattoo and Maori carving. Growth, power and peace huh.

    Why KoruNI though, and does the TWO mean anything, or does it have any significance in her name, I don't know. So from all this, my guess is on a fighting, rock or a ground type, and my '' wildcard '' is a flying type gym leader.

    And it looks to me like she is standing on a boxing ring.

    Knowing how dirty roller derby can get, I think it's a fair guess. If Fighting is clean fighting and Dark is fighting dirty, Dark seem much more fitting for someone whose character design is inspired by derby. I would love it if our first dark gym leader is some peppy girl who just also happens to be a menace and extremely competitive.

    I have seen it stated nowhere that she's the third GL. Just because she's being revealed now doesn't mean she's an early leader. We already know half the leaders this gen. Prerelease of BW only gave us leaders for the first two gyms, though that too was 4 leaders. She could be late in the game where it would make sense to be fighting suped up versions of pokemon.

    Also. Kuroni is rumored to be the one who knows the secret to mega evolutions. So she is most likely going to be using one. And rounding up all the possible mega evolution's types (mega evolutions she COULD be using), we have AT LEAST dark, fire, fighting, fairy, electric, dragon and steel?? (is MegaLucario still the same??). So she is the gym leader who represents one of those types, unless we have loads of more mega evolutions, and we already have almost half of the types filled.

    Also.



    Same color palette.

    I'm not really sure what you're talking about. I never said she was the third gym leader or even an early leader. In fact I thought she might be a later leader. I just wondered if she would use a mega Pokémon, which I assumed she probably would.

    Koruni looks pretty cool. On design alone, I'd guess she's a Fire or Fighting Leader. In which case, she may just kill us with a MegaBlaziken or a MegaLucario. I figure she may have at least one Mega if she knows so much about them.
