    Default Normal Gym Leaders Showdown

    I looked around for this and I found none, so here goes. Due to the ongoing month, I'll be making some Whitney-centric match-ups.

    VS VS


    Whitney, the incredibly pretty girl, Gym Leader of Goldenrod City.
    Norman, a man in pursuit of power, Gym Leader of Petalburg City.
    Aloe, the natural-born mama, Gym Leader of Shippou City.


    All the Normal Type specialists are here for a showdown of regular proportions! They're well known as some of the hardest Gym Leaders in the series due to Normal being a rather difficult and solid Type to deal with. They're also quirky characters with plenty of personality, all focusing on different aspects.

    I really like them all, but I have to pick Whitney. She's my favorite character and girl, not just in Pokémon, but in everything ever. She was also the first Gym Leader that gave me any difficulty, and she remains a tough opponent to this day. I gained huge respect for her ever since I played Gold for the first time, 10 years ago, and I really love her in every way. She's also the cutest and best looking out of the three. I'll put a multiple choice poll, but I have to stick for my love, Whitney ~ <3
    lol I got bored.

    I picked Norman and Aloe.

    When I saw Norman's sprite, I used to think he has a beard, but no...anyway, the manga sure has some spectacular actions by Norman, which involves a lot of violence towards Ruby (the male protagonist). Also, those Slakings are quite a powerful force too! Fortunately, there's a way around them, but Protect is not that widespread at that point (only Swampert can learn Protect). Also, how could I forget Norman's Skill Swap strategy back in Emerald in Doubles?

    Aloe is the first African American-like Gym Leader to me, so that's why I like it: it shows a more diversified ethnicity in the game.

    Thanks for reading.

    ...Wat? It's Whitney month?! *Assumes that is a month of celebrating Whitney*


    Anyway, I pick Whitney. She's adorable, and pretty tough.

    Aloe is really awesome too, but Norman always just struck me as sort of bland, no pun intended.

    But, yeah, Whitney.
    yeah.

    I prefer Norman, as his actions in the Manga and his in-game role appealed to me.

    I choose Norman, because Whitney never really appealed to me and I don't know much about Aloe.

    I picked Norman because he's probably the best strategist and the furthest along in the Gym Leader order (5th, as opposed to Whitney's 3rd and Aloe's 2nd), but Whitney would pwn them all in a battle with her damn Miltank!
    Yeah, I write weirdly dark stuff sometimes. Birdsong, I Can't See The Light and The Courteous Soldier, if you're interested.

    DOn't know much about Aloe but she seems cool...

    Whitney is a bitch (That damn Miltank!!! And then she doesn't give you the badge augh!!!!) But other then her crybaby attidute and her demonic Miltank (I actually didn't have a problem with her in SS though back in the day...) She's alright and very pretty

    Norman Get's props for being the only PC Father introduced in the series. (Seriously? Where is Red/Leaf, Ethen/Krys/Lyra, Lucas/Dawn Touya/Touka dad's?) And his slowking Those things are hacked Slowking doesn't naterally learn Skill Swap does he?

    I'll choose Whitney who despite being seen as the weakest Leader in PokeSpe (Which I never actually read...) Is probibly one of the most infamous Gym Leaders ever...

    Whitney is my second placer because of all my fooooooond /sarcasm memories of her. Norman is first because... well, he's your dad. That's pretty cool.

    Norman being your dad was really cool.

    Another plus for Gen III.

    Norman is boss. I remember, back in the days I could only understand a few words of English, I was shocked I had to battle my own "father". When I realized he was a Gym Leader, I thought that was epic, and I have been fond of him since.
    His PokéSpecial persona also helps, he is surely a very interesting character.

    I like the gals, too, but it's just that I like them less.

    I choose Whitney. Her Miltank is one of the few gym pokemon that I actually have some trouble with. I choose Whitney because of that badass Miltank.....*blushes*and she is pretty.

    Norman. Everybody that battles using a Slaking gets my deep respect. Because Slaking is awesome.

    I love Whitney, she's hot.

    While aloe activates my guilty pleasure for "plump" dark skinned girls. Ahhh decisions, decisions.
