    No surprise there, all of their types (bar Viola, since we knew hers) seemed kinda obvious imo, especially since they put what I'd assume to be the gym badge in their portraits.

    I actually hate when they do this, unless the Pokemon is related to that type (as is the case with Sabrina's Venomoth or Aaron's Drapion). But stuff like Volkner using Ambipom and Octillery or Flint using Drifblim, Steelix, and Lopunny is too random and reflective of DP's poor Pokedex distribution. Platinum's teams are more like what they were intended to be in the first place.

    Drifblim and Steelix are actually related to fire, being a hot air balloon and a creature made of heat/pressure compressed material, respectively.

    Not in the same way as Venomoth and Drapion, who can actually have the same type moves in their movesets (and Drapion's pre evolved form is Bug). Drifblim, Steelix, and Lopunny only really learn generic Fire moves that every other Pokemon in the Dex can learn.

    Does anyone have a source for this?

    ^I can't confirm a source, but my meager spanish skills can confirm that that is what it says.

    I sort of have a feeling that Korrina is going to be very difficult, especially since I wouldn't be surprised if she uses a Mega Evolved pokemon. Maybe even Mega Lucario. I peg either her or the rumored Fairy gym leader as the "whitney" of this gen, if there is one. Actually I think a lot of people are gong to have trouble with a fairy type trainer if for no other reason than it will take a while for some people to commit it's weakness 9which we still don't know) to memory. Yeah, the gym guy will tell you what's strong against it, but who the hell bothers talking to that guy anymore?

    Are you kidding me? Yet ANOTHER electric gym? We've had one every region besides Johto! I would have much appreciated if another type got to shine, but I guess electric is better. It would have been nice if he was steel, like I hoped, but meh...


    All of the other types though are understandable. Korrina's is certainly the least shocking.

    Clemont was so obviously Electric it wasn't even funny, anyone who thought it was anything else with all the evidence was only fooling themselves.

    What do you mean, a source? I posted a pic and the name of the magazine it came from.

    Apparently Clemont had a Dedenne in the anime, so there's more support for him being electric if you happen to doubt spanish magazines.

    Since Clemont is almost guaranteed to specialize in Electric-types, he should be the third gym leader you face in the games assuming the rumors given to WPM are accurate.

    If he's the Lumiose gym leader (I think that's been implied, right?), then third sounds about right.
