If you were a Gym Leader

Recommended Posts

For any Pokemon fans on here: If you were a Gym Leader, what type would you specialize in? Who would your team be? And what would your badge be?

 

I would most likely specialize in Dark types. My team would consist of an Absol, Zoroark, and Umbreon

 

Upon my defeat, I would confer to the victor the Eclipse Badge

Rematch team: 

Absol

Zoroark

Umbreon

Houndoom

Weavile

Honchkrow

Hm... I think I'd have to go with the ice type! I've always loved the bright blue and white aesthetic.

As for my team, I suppose there really aren't many choices that haven't already been used. I suppose I'd use Alolan Sandslash and Ninetails along with Glaceon, Aurorus, Weavile and Froslass!

The badge would be the snowflake badge!

Edit: For a more believable in-game setup, I'll make individual teams based on the number of badges the challenger has:

0-2: A Vulpix, A Sandshrew, Amaura

3-4: A Vulpix, A Sandshrew, Aurorus

5-6: Sneasel, A Ninetails, A Sandslash, Aurorus

7: Weavile, A Ninetails, A Sandslash, Aurorus

8: Weavile, A Ninetails, A Sandslash, Froslass, Aurorus

Rematch: Weavile, A Ninetails, A Sandslash, Glaceon, Froslass, Aurorus

My problem with this is that most of my favourite Pokémon are all different types, so I wouldn't be able to use them all...
Unless it were theme, rather than type, which would probably end up with me being Elite Four rather than a Gym Leader, like Dragon Cheater Master Lance.

For type, I would have to pick Fairy, I think. That or Dragon. My team would likely be some combination of Alolan Ninetales, Mimikyu, Gardevoir, Dedenne, and Primarina, though Mawile and Altaria (Mega) are options too. My main logic for these is the secondary type, even though I'd miss out on Clefable and Sylveon with that reasoning (my two favourite pure Fairy types). A win would get you the Sprite Badge.

If I went with Dragon, it would be some combination of Dragonair, Flygon, Altaria (Mega), Alolan Exeggutor, Dragalge, Tyrantrum or Turtonator. If you brought your A game, you'd end up with a Hoard Badge.

For E4 theme, it would of course be foxes/fox-like Pokémon. Ninetales and Alolan Ninetales, Zoroark, Braixen or Delphox, Sylveon, and probably Midday Lycanroc to round it out. I know an Eeveelution and an obvious (from the name at least) wolf (and locking myself out of anything that can Mega evolve) is kind of pushing it a bit, but so what? 🙃

I'm also not saying I would definitely have six Pokémon, but I can't narrow it down further than that... Definitely a late stage Gym if not E4.

My very first post, and it's in relation to being a hypothetical Pokémon gym leader — sounds about right!

My heart tells me that I would go for the Fairy type, if for no other reason than the aesthetic of an underestimated pink powerhouse™

But my head tells me to go for electricity, which is the type of most of my favourites: Raichu, Jolteon, Emolga and Luxray.

And I'd probably relinquish the Fizzle Badge, or perhaps the Cannon Badge. ⚡

Since gym leaders tend to.habe rematches with a full team of 6 Pokemon, I'd say go ahead and make a full 6 Pokemon team, but now that foxy brings it up, I think I'll edit my post to include a team for each gym level.

That's actually a pretty good idea. I just picked 3 to keep it simple.

Late-game Normal type Leader.

First match:

  • Furret
  • Audino
  • Cinccino

Rematch:

  • Furret (with Chople Berry)
  • Delcatty (with Silk Scarf)
  • Wigglytuff (with Leftovers)
  • Blissey (with Jaboca Berry)
  • Audino (with Audinite)
  • Cinccino (with Normalium Z)

My badge would be the Charm Badge. A cute badge for a master of cute Pokémon!~

Blissey instead of Furfrou.

I think there would be only one type for me. Dragon. Dragons are just the best (Yes. I am totally, 100% biased here)

I think I would go for a mid-to-late-game gym, more towards the late game.

First match:

  1. Dragonair
  2. Skrelp
  3. Gabite

Rematch: 

  1. Dragonite
  2. Dragalge
  3. Garchomp
  4. Hydreigon
  5. Tyrantrum
  6. Kingdra

I think the badge I would give out, would be the "Dragon's Heart" badge.

ghost and psychic pokemon all the fucking way.

first match:

  1. Haunter
  2. Jynx
  3. Kirlia

rematch:

  1. Gengar (Maybe with the Gengarite thing)
  2. A more badass Jynx
  3. Gardevoir (Maybe with the Gardevoirite thing)
  4. Latias (Maybe with the Latias-ite thing)
  5. A super sized Gourgeist, because fuck you motherfucker. lol
  6. Aegislash.

which one I mega evolve is pot luck. I think you can only mega-evolve once per match, right? so................which one I mega evolve completely depends. as for a badge that's pot luck too.......I wouldn't know. maybe the degeneracy badge. which is someone taking a diglett up the ass or being licked out by a lickitung.

Hmmm for me its always been the Ice type gym. I'm not gonna lie, its my favourite. But I also know its generally precieved as the weakest type. Soo I would definately try to do something about that.

My team of 4 (since I'd try to have my gym about halfway through the story) I'd go for the following:

Mamoswine, Obamasnow, Frostlass and as an ace I'd use Wallrain.

 

For my re-match I'd probably add a sneasle to get the quick damage in and a glaceon... cause i like it XD

Really? Ice is considered weak? I'd think Bug type would get the most flak because I always have a hard time with ice

Mainly because there aren't that many, and they have pretty bad resistances. They normally need their second type to make them more viable and a lot of them became absolete with the introduction of fairy type. Before then they were already only really used for the dragon killing, but then again, i havent' done competative battling in a while so I need time to get the information gathered if you like to know more 🙂 But yes bug is often also considered weak because of their stats and the likes, but then again, i don't know in the current meta. Also ice types often have terrible stat distribution.

      Hey all! So I had tried this idea with someone a while back, didn't get too far into it before they deactivated their account. So! I kinda wanna give it another shot, especially because its different from what I usually do. 
      So you'll play a girl (preferably 15-17) that missed her chance at getting her first Pokémon, and has never tried again since. A week before your birthday, your parent(s) give you an empty pokeball as an early present, thinking it's time you go on your own journey. You find your first pokemon nearby, but miss with your throw. Then you learn that there is another way to catch it. 
      I will play the various Pokémon and people that you meet on your journey.
      Setting is a region that we make up containing all Pokémon from every region. You'll be traveling the world battling trainers, participating in poke contests...and fucking each Pokémon that you wish to catch and join your team. Possible non-con scenes if you want, but we'll have to discuss it first. 
      Bonus points on using and wanting elements from both the games and the TV show!
      EcchiText me your ideas and which Pokémon you would like to be your first 😁

      The Pokegirls to choose from:
      Green: Tsundere with an angry attitude and big breasts.
      Kris: A sexy tomboy with a big heart.
      Lyra: A far girlier type than Kris, but still a tomboy.
      May: A sweetheart who’s in love with Brendan.
      Dawn: A fashionable type who’s super sweet and wears a tiny skirt.
      Hilda: Rosa’s bestie, an oneesan type.
      Rosa: Energetic idol!
      Serena: Fashionable, ditzy, and cute.
      Selene: Loves the supernatural, very cheerful, chuunibyou
      Gloria: Scottish tsundere.
      Give me your ideas for these pokesluts!

      *Okay, so this is about a mew (me) getting transported to the normal universe, the one where we live in. This mew was banished by arceus and has all moves stripped off of her. She only has telepathy, her way of communication to humans. She has to adapt to these humans, or she will forever be a victim for these rule 34 explorers. IF I AM DOING SOMETHING WRONG, PM ME. THIS IS MY FIRST TIME STARTING A PUBLIC RP!!! HUMANS ONLY, HORNY HUMANS HIGHLY PREFERRED!!*

      So... um, for people who don't know me...
      Hi and welcome to the world of Pokèmon, my name is Professor O...
      Wait, that isn't right.
      Hi! My name here is Maid Lover, since I happen to have a very exploitable weakness when it comes to ladies wearing certain kinds of uniforms, but I happen to have many names, or rather nicknames. A way I've been adressed as ever since I was little is "the Pokèmon pro", something that I have always found a little bit excessive, because I don't really feel like it's deserved, as I haven't been recognized as one of the top player by the community as a whole, I don't own any kind of world record, and I have never won an IRL tournament. However, the ungodly amount of hours I spent playing the games over the past 16 years granted me a well-rounded competence in most of its fields, accompanied by a very solid knowledge, which I try to improve by reading articles and doing reserch by myself.

      I will say this here and now, Pokèmon is a surprisingly complex game with a tremendously high amount of mechanics to learn, secrets, bugs, glitches, exploits, general tips, strategies and stuff you have to memorize, making it, in my opinion, one of the games with the highest skill caps, since there are at least 4 competitive ways to play it, every single one of them being completely different from the other. I'm talking about:
      -Competitive battles (pvp)
      -Speedruns
      -Nuzlockes
      -GCC card game (Stop hating it!)
      As much as I try to continuosly improve, I tend to consider myself a Noob most of the times, because considering the amount of time I spent playing the main series video games and spinoffs, as well as playing PVP on Pokèmon showdown, I should be much better than I am right now. However, even after having spent so much time on it, and even though sometimes the game makes me rage, cry and sometimes scream out of frustration, I keep playing it, unable to abandon it completely.
      Pokèmon has made my life what it is, for better or for worse, I tried hating it, abandon it forever, but there has never, ever been a year in my life when I didn't play it, I have now acknowledged it as my #1 passion, even if some people see it as a waste of time and give me hate or pity for it, which still Really saddens me to this day, because I am really sensitive about it.
      One thing that I have to specify right off the bat is that I only play retro pokèmon games, mostly gen 3 and gen 2, perhaps I will get in depth of gen 4 and learn all of its most obscure secrets later on, but I will never play gen 6 onwards. The reason is quite simple: I play on phone or on PC, because I have no console I can play the games on, since my parents yeeted all of my games, except my pokèmon white 2, where I saved all of my important mons, and it miraculously survived the "WW3". Also, I really love the fact that I can bring my Pokèmons everywhere and freely manage my save files on pc, copying them and making backups, since losing them would be a catastrophe, all the while allowing me to trade easily, replay events... Emulators are great! I feel like that's the best way to play the old games, since there was no wireless back then, but everyone seems to want to murder me whenever I say that, so let's ignore my personal opinion.

      The thin is... I play so much and yet have nobody to show the cool and sometimes crazy things I achieve, which saddens me a little bit, so I decided to create this forum, to share with the world what I do, how I play the game and let's be honest, to brag a little, after all, I do love being praised. I encourage everyone to share their thoughts, ideas and experiences, PLEASE, post here, I don't want to monopolize this discussion completely, and I would love to have a dialogue with every single one of you, as long as you are being respectful, and you aren't saying dumb shit. However, please notice that I would like to keep this as a safe place to post my personal in game things, but comments, replies and discussion are very welcome!
      (Please notice that I won't be annoyed if you decide to post a picture of your pokémon or your save file, or anything else, as long as it's in the right context or in a discussion between you/us)

      Also, this is my first time making something like this, so please, let me know whether you find this kind of format appealing or terrible, costructive criticism is always welcome, especially when it come to graphic style!
      One thing that I would like to point out is that I will NEVER post in game playthroughs, unless very special cases, like very particular challenges or guides. This is mainly for two reasons: It's too much work, but most importantly, @Aura has had this idea a while back, and it would feel so wrong to copypaste him, especially since he has been magnificent in creating his posts, and I truly encourage every single one of you to go read his discussion regarding his pokèmon journey through the various games, you can find it under the name "all the pokemens".

      This is all for now! Thank you everyone who read this, I would appreciate so much if you could react to it to know that someone is interested in my content! I wish all of you a very nice day and week.
