but it's a gym leader battle

A PokemonxHaikyuu AU where Bokuto is the League Champ.

Champion Bokuto never intended to use a Wailord in official league battles. But that goofy, gigantic smile just melted Bokuto’s only slightly less gigantic heart, and soon he was begging Akaashi to let him keep one at home as a pet.

Unsatisfied with Akaashi’s assertion that their pool is much too small, Bokuto consults with Pokemon Professor Kuroo who confirms, “No, an Olympic-sized pool cannot comfortably fit a Wailord.”

Nevertheless, Bokuto manages to catch himself a Wailmer, and Akaashi and Kuroo try to hold off its evolution for as long as possible. They last three weeks.

★ we finished season two! ★ here are some small doodles i did while watching (including some pokemon au ideas lol)

Bnha Pokemon au

I just started thinking about bnha and pokemon with some of my faves:

Bakugou would be a badass gym leader with all fire types and maybe a few fighting type. He’s like the number one gym leader and no one has yet to beat him.

🔹All his pokemon are strong and have been eveloved to their last.
🔹 He’s trained day and night to get to where he is and will not back down no matter what.
🔹 He actually really cares about his pokemon.
🔹If one gets seriously injured he’s right there to make sure its okay.
🔹 He tends to visit Kirishima when he needs help caring for his smaller pokemon.
🔹 You wanna challenge Bakugou? Think again. He’ll take you down in a blink of an eye.

Kirishima would have either ground or dragon types and most definitely be a pokemon breeder so you’d see him constantly taking care if hurt pokemon.

🔹He’s not much for battles when it comes to travlers but he does enjoy it from time to time.
🔹He once went against Bakugou. Never again will he ask him to battle.
🔹He’s almost always seen carrying at least one or two eggs.
🔹His pokemon follow him wherever he goes.
🔹"Why aren’t they in pokeballs?“ “Because they don’t like it plus its more fun when they follow me around!”
🔹He’s actually a very good with battles. He’s won quite a few.

Denki is all electric types obviously and would just be a wandering trainer who enjoys all the places he’s seen and battles he’s won. He visits Kirishima a lot for tips on caring for his pokemon.

🔹He’s always getting shocked at least once a day by his pokemon.
🔹He’s not exactly good with remembering what they like so he goes to Kirishima.
🔹Has a whole list of notes on what they do/don’t like.
🔹He may not look like it to most people but Denki is very strong.
🔹Almost every battle he’s had, he’s won or its a draw.
🔹He never backs down from a fight.

Midoriya would most likely have like normal to grass types? Probably not even close to a gym leader but he’s getting there. His normal types always turn out to be super strong, like Eevee he has at least one or two.

🔹Very gentle with his pokemon and always encouraging them to do their best.
🔹Tends to drop by Kirishima’s place when his pokemon get injured or sick.
🔹He’s nervous about battles but he’s smart and knows what to do to win.
🔹He gets very nervous when he doesn’t have any idea what to do when there’s a wild pokmon near by.
🔹He’s seen with Uraraka and IIda always, they train together to see who’s gotten stronger.
🔹IIda usually wins.

Mina would have all bug types and probably be one of those type of people to put their pokemon through little fashion shows as well as a pretty badass trainer.

🔹She’s always hanging out with Denki no matter what.
🔹She tends to travle to big cities in hopes of meeting new people for battles.
🔹She loves cuddling up with her pokemon and takes very very good care of them.
🔹She enjoys watching other pokemon during shows and is seen cheering on hers.
🔹She’s such a sweet heart to her pokemon that they love to cling to her and she doesn’t mind one bit.
🔹Wanna fight Mina? Better be ready to lose.

Todoroki would be a gym leader as well with either fire or ice types but with how he is he’d have both. He’s not number one like Bakugou but he is second best as a gym leader.

🔹 Like Bakugou, Todoroki’s pokemon are strong and he always takes down his opponent.
🔹He’s like Deku, encouraging his pokemon to do their best.
🔹Head pets are his favorite thing to give to his pokemon when they’ve done well.
🔹He tends to his pokemon on a daily basis.
🔹He never loses a fight. Although he lost to Bakugou a few times.
🔹Challenge Todoroki? Think twice before stepping into his gym.
🔹He’s the strongest in his city and everyone knows it.
🔹He even helps people train, usually his previous opponents will come back asking for advice on how to get better.

This isn’t the kind of thing I usually post here, but it is my Pokemon blog, so hell, why not. I find the Pokedex entries of ghost Pokemon to be, as a category, the most interesting in the games, especially because so many of them have explicit or implied ties to humanity. 

It just makes me picture this scenario: imagine a horde of roving pillagers attacking a village. A father manages to escape the village with his little boy, and they make it into the forest. Imagine that some of the large mob noticed them, and chases them as they run through the forest at night. The father knows they won’t be able to outrun them. He tells his boy to run very, very far away, and hide as quietly as he can. The boy reluctantly obeys, and the father stays behind to hold them back for as long as he can. The boy never finds his father again, nor does he ever find his way out of the woods. 

Now imagine that 500 years later, a trainer is traveling through a forest with his trusty Yamask at his side. They encounter a Phantump in the wild, and the trainer finds himself unable to order his Yamask to attack it. Instead, the Pokemon seem weirdly taken with each other, and the Phantump soon joins his team of its own accord. 

And picture that down the road sometime, after gym leader victories and difficult terrain, this trainer enters a battle with another trainer who sends out a Spritomb. He finds himself confused as Phantump and Yamask release themselves from their Pokeballs and refuse to switch out from the battlefield. The trainer can’t understand their speak, but if he did, he’d hear his trusted companion say, “We’ll beat them this time, son.”

I personally view Blanche as gender-fluid, but for comprehension’s sake, Blanche was given the pronoun “her”.
- - - 
Something was wrong. He didn’t know for certain what, but something in the bottom of his gut was telling him he was needed.

Like a lightning bolt, Spark darted through the woods that surrounded the clearing of his gym on the high mountain. He knew its terrain better than any trainer under him and he quickly zipped through the trees, pulling a Pokéball from his hip just as the trees began to thin. 

“Pidgeotto, go!“ 

The great Pokémon appeared above him, its wings spread wide as it soared through the air, taking a moment to stretch its feathers. Spark kept his gaze ahead of him, his sights set on the approaching cliff and the magnificent view of the valley below. With one great leap of faith, he threw himself over the edge and for one adrenaline-pumping moment, he flew. But before he could begin his quick descent back to the unforgiving earth below, Pidgeotto streaked towards him and ducked under his fall, catching him with practiced grace on its back. 

With a clear view of the valley before him, Spark suddenly understood what had made him feel so anxious. The large, blue and white Tower of Mystic’s gym was engulfed in smoke. 


Without waiting for a command, Pidgeotto soared towards the once-glorious building at an impossible speed. Spark’s bright orange and yellow gloves protected his hands from the bite of cold air and his dark jacket billowed out around him as the large Pokémon circled the blue needle at the top of the tower. The once intricate and sparkling glass was now cracked and broken, and like silent birds of prey, they revolved around the needle until they found an opening they could dart into. Inside, Pidgeotto found a high perch to settle on to overlook the gym. 

A horrible feeling welled in Spark’s chest as his bright eyes took in the destruction below. Giant shards of glass from the supporting pillars and ceiling littered the gym and the once-flawless diamond floor now held spider web cracks that stretched across the entire length of the battle arena. The worse of the damage was in the center, where Blanche was lying unmoving with her Pokémon just as injured beside her. However, she was not alone.

Candela, the third major gym leader of the region, was beside her, but she was in no better shape. Her jacket was torn and the Flareon that never seemed to leave her side was sprawled on its side. This was no Pokémon Battle. This was an attack. 

It shouldn’t have come as a surprise to see Team Rocket standing across from the pair with an army of Pokémon behind them. It was not the first time the infamous group had attempted to take one of them down in sake of destroying their gifted power; but this was on another level Spark had never seen before, and though the trio squabbled like siblings, there was anything one wouldn’t do to protect another. 

"Down,” Spark ordered.

Without hesitation, Pidgeotto sprang into action, its large wings flapping to life before they descended downwards towards the party. Team Rocket noticed his approach at the last second, but before they could ready an attack, Spark dropped to the floor as Pidgeotto used its large wings to send a biting gust of wind in their direction before it retreated once more to the high perch. 

“Spark!” Candela called. Her tone was equal parts surprised and relieved.

“Sorry I’m late.”

Now that he was closer, he could see the other gym leaders were better off than he first suspected but neither looked able to continue their fight. Blanche was sporting a rather nasty cut to her arm and Candela’s cheek was bruised. The injuries made his stomach twist in knots.

“Better late than never,” Candela smiled.

She gathered Blanche further into her arms as heavy-booted steps thumped behind him. He turned as a member of Team Rocket stepped forward, obviously presenting himself as the leader. Spark didn’t recognize him, but the smugness surrounding him was undeniable. “Well, look who decided to join us, boys. If it isn’t the baby of the Big Three.”

At the insult, Spark’s eyes narrowed dangerously. However, it was Candela that spoke first: “The Big Three.” Spark didn’t need to glance back at her to know there was a confident smirk etched into her face; he could hear it in her voice. “I think you forget that Spark earned his title, just as Blanche and I did.”

“There is more to a gym leader than power and ability,” Blanche added. “It is equal parts ambition, wisdom, and instinct.” Her voice was rough, but it still held the undertone of a confident, experienced trainer and leader.

Spark stood slowly as he adjusted the cuff of his gloves. The doubt was evident in the leader’s expression, but he merely faced him head on as the anger began to boil just under his skin. No one touched Blanche and Candela without answering to him.

“Team Leader? Don’t make me laugh.”

“I think you forget you’re standing in water,” Spark murmured. He could already feel the power of Zapdos spreading through him, like little pinpricks of lightning running through his veins, causing his body to vibrate with building power as his skin broke out into goosebumps. “And you know what electricity loves?”

Confusion rippled through Team Rocket, but he didn’t give them time to answer as the beat of wings reached his ears.


A monstrous clap of thunder reverberated through the air as a bright bolt of lightning blinded them. In a moment that seemed to last forever and yet only an instant, it was gone, leaving deafening silence in its wake as the three leaders found themselves alone once more. What remained of Team Rocket was nothing more than a giant hole in the glass doors of the Tower’s entryway.

Relaxing his stance, Spark scratched the back of his neck as he glanced back at the other leaders. “Sorry about the door, Blanche.”



Eevee, native to the Kalos region, is one of the most commonly distributed Pokémon worldwide and a general favourite among trainers and normal folk alike. The diversity of its evolutionary paths make it a common research topic among scientists, and its friendly temperament makes it an ideal pet. Whilst some trainers choose to raise eevee from a young age, adopting one with the intention of evolving it into a specific evolution is generally discouraged, as it can be hard to control the path it takes. 

The most common eeveelutions are vaporeon and leafeon, as their natural enviroments are widely available. Wild vaporeons are found in a myriad different aquatic areas, and their features and statures vary depending on whether they inhabit fresh or saltwater. Primarily, they live in small groups in lakes and docks, and are rarely found far out at sea.   

Leafeons are mainly solitary, but will occasionally travel in pairs. Sightings of them are fairly few, as they are shy Pokémon who flee quickly when spotted. As expected, they reside most commonly in forests and woods.

Jolteons often inhabit cities, but can be found virtually anywhere; eevee often evolve into them unexpectedly. They travel in groups and can sometimes cause a nuisance chewing on power lines and digging in dustbins. Nonetheless, they have eager, dog-like temperament and lots of energy, making them favourites among many.

Flareons are more scantily dispersed, confined to hot, volcanic areas. They are slightly more apprehensive of humans, but will approach if exposed to them for long enough. Though gentler than jolteons, they are capable of exerting just as much enthusiasm when it comes to battling; the two are seen as a complementing pair, and train well together.

Glaceons are, as one might expect, found commonly in cold, snowy environments. They are mainly independent, but trusting, thus form relationships fairly quickly with both humans and other Pokémon alike. Territorial disputes involving them are uncommon, if not unheard of.

Umbreons are sparse, but are sighted most commonly in urban areas. They hunt alone during the night, cause little disturbance, but slink away quickly at the sight of human activity. Unlike jolteons, they rarely leave any evidence that they have been in a certain area, and this makes it hard to determine their population. 

Espeons are perhaps the rarest of all the eeveelutions, and can be found in any mild-weathered area; there is no real correlation as to what environment they seek. They do not flee when discovered by humans as leafeons and umbreons do, but nor do they approach cordially like jolteons and, to some extent, vaporeons; they simply ignore them. Predominantly, wild espeons are fairly removed from human life, but have been known to steal titbits food from restaurants and homes, often through thought-out, clever methods (of all of eevee’s evolutions, espeon is the most intelligent).

Sylveons can be found in grasslands, but they exist primarily in domestic environments. Often the most pampered and adoring eevee evolve into Sylveons, and they make incredibly loyal, if a little clingy, pets and allies. 

Controlling eevee evolution is a difficult feat. Whilst evolutionary stones would be a viable option for those seeking vaporeon, jolteon or flareon, I imagine that they wouldn’t be as foolproof a method as the game suggests. Evolution via use of a stone requires prolonged exposure to it, often whilst the eevee sleeps, and its effects can still be nullified if the evolution evoked by the stone would be completely inappropriate for the eevee’s environment. For example, you’ll have a hard time getting a flareon if you live within a few meters of the beach.

Evolving an eevee into espeon or umbreon is even harder, as it often depends on the personality of the Pokémon at hand and the relationship it has with with you. If a trainer seeks either one of these eeveelutions, they are encouraged to buy them outright, despite their expense, as it is much simpler and less stressful. Many eevee are abandoned or hurt when they evolve into something outside of their owner’s preference, so check ups and interviews have to be conducted before a person can adopt one.   

Glaceons and leafeons evolve only when exposed to their ideal environments, thus meaning that it is far easier to prompt an eevee to flourish into the latter. Frequent training and play in forests and grassy areas is often all that is needed.

Sylveons simply require that you adore them, so whilst it is true that they are often formed from the most spoil eevee, they are still found in poor households in which they receive nothing but a home and limitless amounts of love.

Sometimes, of course, eevee will never evolve at all. Contrary to popular belief, this doesn’t always infringe on their strength, as well-trained, adult eevee can hold their own in battle, and are sometimes used in friendly matches.  

To conclude, eeveelutions are commonly used amongst gym leaders and elite four members, as they are all strong, friendly Pokémon that are widely available to those prepared to commit to them. Espeon, despite its rarity in the wild, is a popular choice for psychic trainers and established coordinators.  

Sit back and I will tell you a story about baby natasha. I decided when I was young that I would be a ghost and dark type pokemon gym leader. But I wanted to wear a pretty pink princess dress and have bows in my hair when I battled because I thought it was cool to look kind but to have a bunch of scary pokemon to be my friends and keep me safe.

Since then not much has changed. But now its Grass and Ghost types that are my favorites with dark types close behind.

i talk abt this a lot but kanto sucked when it came to appointing gym leaders and league members like??? more than half of the people who had those titles were bad people (altho there was redemption stuff but still.. they were bad for a long time!!)

did they not do background checks or something?? its like “alright, i know ur an awful person with highly questionable motives, but you battle well. welcome to the team” ???? why was our region so flawed

reasons for sinnoh remake  /  continuation : beautiful music re - orchestrated  ( distortion world, floaroma meadow, cynthia’s battle theme ), character redesigns, more in - depth on storylines  &  pokémon creation mythology, the distortion world in 3 - D, younger players seeing how truly terrifying cyrus  /  team galactic is  (  can we get rid of their space suits?  ), new cities added  /  redesigned, snowpoint city, eterna forest, mega - evolutions, et cœtera. 

Gym Leaders, Elites and Champions

The processes of becoming a gym leader, Elite Four member or Champion all differ greatly from one another, and each job demands a different attitude and approach to battle. Strength is not the only determining factor as to which job is best suited to a trainer. 

Gym Leaders:

Being a gym leader has two primary requirements: that you can battle and that you can teach. All gym leaders within a region are supposed to be of a similar standard (not ascending in difficulty as they are in the games) but variation is always present. Being a gym leader does not necessarily place a limit on your strength; some are even stronger than Elites - Volkner, leader of the Sunyshore City gym, is of almost champion standard, but elects to be a gym leader out of desire to teach. Blue Oak is of the same calibre, but took up the Viridian gym position after losing his Champion position to Red. Nontheless, gym leaders of this skill level are fairly uncommon; for the most part, the Elite Four is more challenging.  

Gyms are primarily run by the gym leader, who is in charge of conducting both general lessons and one-to-one tuition sessions with those who book them. However, most gyms - primarily those in cities - attract legions of trainers per day, so type experts are employed to demonstrate and teach where the gym leader is unable to. It may also be worth mentioning that matches with the gym leader usually have to be booked in advance - as in, you cannot simply turn up at the gym and demand a battle in the brazen manner that Ash Ketchum does in the anime. Leaders have busy schedules. 

Anybody can apply to become a gym leader providing that they are of substantial skill and maturity. There are no strict age requirements attached to the job, but it is rare that a gym leader be any younger than sixteen, as anybody below that age usually lacks substantial experience and responsibility. The only real factor that may count against an applicant is their type specialty, as League officials wish to maintain diversity and always avoid appointing two gym leaders of the same type choice.

If a gym leader receives multiple complaints from students or fails to meet certain standards of strength (all leaders are expected to win a certain percentage of battles per year), they can be placed under observation for several months. If their teaching and/or victory rates do not improve within this time, they can be dismissed from their job. I imagine that Jasmine would be placed under observation at one time, hence why she visits Sunyshore City (to be trained by Volkner, I believe), but would manage to improve and keep her position at her gym. I cannot imagine the same thing happening to Whitney, who would eventually be sacked after she failed to recover.

Gym leaders below the age of eighteen are treated with slightly more leniency, as they are not expected to be as polished as those with more experience. Newly appointed leaders are also regarded in the same manner, so as to give them a few months to find their feet.

Gym leaders achieve international fame the moment they take up their positions, but are usually better known in their own regions. Nevertheless, that doesn’t mean they can visit an airport without being crowded by the paparazzi; they’re definitely considered to be high profile celebrities.

Elite Four Members:

Being an Elite requires a different kind of attitude to gym leading, and the appointment process is completely different. Whilst certain Elites may hold occasional education workshops so as to offer expertise to those specialising in their type (something I can imagine Karen, Sydney and Grimsley doing, due to the severe shortage of dark gym leaders), teaching is not a part of the job description. Being an Elite is best suited to powerful trainers who purely enjoy battle, ones who can handle the intensely busy lifestyle attached to the position.

Unlike applying for gym leading, there is no free-for-all auditioning process when trying out for an Elite position. When a member of the Elite Four steps down, the League officials make a collective decision about what kind of trainer would be best to take their place, usually contacting three or four potential candidates and having them audition before making a final decision. Either way, appointed Elites are usually very successful trainers already renowned in their field, not unknown members of the public. You could say that it works on a  'don’t call us, we’ll call you’ kind of basis. 

Elites tend to be stronger than gym leaders (though this isn’t always the case), therefore they cannot be challenged until a trainer has collected all eight badges. Whilst casual trainers may make it their goal to defeat all of the gym leaders in their region, only serious ones try their hand at defeating the Elite Four, as it is enormous step up. Matches have to be booked in advance and are often attended by the public, with tickets going on sale in the weeks before it takes place. I can’t imagine that challengers would have to defeat each Elite Four member in succession (that may have once been a tradition, but is no longer practical), but they would have to conquer all of them before they could challenge the Champion - a difficult feat.

All Elite Four members are all household names, even in overseas regions. More so than gym leaders, their job requires international travel, as they don’t have gyms to manage or teaching commitments. It’s all about the battle.


Becoming the Champion is an enormously difficult task, but it is, in a peculiar kind of way, almost easier to attain than an Elite position. Whilst the skill required for the job is higher than any other battling occupation in the world, it works on a similar basis to gym leading in the sense that anybody can take up the position if they are strong enough. The only requirements are that you triumph over all of the gyms in your region, beat every member of the Elite Four, and that you win against the existing Champion in a 6v6 battle. No previous credentials or establishment is needed, as is the case with becoming an Elite.

Champions typically take up influential positions on the League council, having an involvement in the appointment of new gym leaders and Elites and as well as an overall say in the running of things, but that isn’t always the case. Lance, even Gold took his place as Champion, would leave the battling aspect of the League but remain on its council, as he would have been a long-standing member, whereas Gold himself would have a more minor role. There is more to being Champion than battle, but the extra demands do depend on how willing the Champion is to take them on. 

Champions are obviously the most famous trainers of all, known worldwide by even those with little to no interest in battling. Any matches in which they compete go on sale to the public and sell out rapidly, as well as being televised to those who cannot see them in the flesh. The prestige of Champions, even those who have incredibly short reigns (like Blue) or disappear without a trace (like Red), isn’t something that ever fades away. They are always welcome at tournaments, namely the PWT.  

I never thought I was a bad person. I just thought I was the one good person living in a bad world!

Gym Leader Dean Ambrose wants to battle!
A good friend suggested a Mightyena for him which was a swell option for the wolf/hound part, but I went with a more unorthodox choice instead for obvious reasons (though the Mightyena remains part of his team and is his starter). 

“Despite its cantankerous demeanor, Pangoro is not one to tolerate those who pick on the weak. With arms powerful enough to snap a telephone pole, it charges into battle like a berserker, heedless of any damage it might suffer as it bashes its opponents.”

He runs a fighting/darkness gym with Roman that’s more or less built around a yin/yang concept ie. there can’t be darkness without light, and both must be accepted for a balance. 
He’s got…..unfinished business with a certain Rocket Admin, oh yes.

I can get some H/C's for how Lillie's return to Alola would go down? :)

ok ok ok here we go this is such a golden ask

see her HC team here, i reference them often in this post

- Hau, who has been sending her letters for the entire time she’s been away, fuckin cries as soon as he catches sight of her. they’re all a little bit more grown up now, so she looks so different and so much more confident than she did before.
- she fucking walks off the boat like its her runway. she knows how powerful she’s become, beating all of Kanto’s gym leaders and going through the elite four.
- while she’s grown quite a bit, the one thing that won’t change is her love for pokemon protection and research! she has so many stories to tell and even helped the oak family with their research about regional variants (hc: i see her with a kantonian marowak on her main team)
- Moon, who didn’t keep in contact as much as Hau did, immediately challenges her to a battle as soon as she’s settled
- Moon gets defeated. it’s a close battle, but Lillie ends up blowing Moon’s incineroar out of the water with her dewgong
- with that, Moon decides to gift lillie back nebby….she probably cries? she cries
- once that’s over, they all go to Kukui’s house to talk about her adventures and what she’s missed while she was gone
- i love lillie so much

@frcgmentmuses we’re weak.

There was no need for him to be there. The school had plenty of top class trainers and they could of gone to represent the school with out him. Citron wasn’t a battler, he was a scientist.

 An inventor.

Sure he liked to battle with his Pokemon like everyone else did but he didn’t like contests or competitions that involved the Pokemon doing all the work. 

Citron wanted to create to make them happy, and even if his dream was to become Gym Leader some day and learn more about how to better their lives,but  he really didn’t think battling now was going to benefit him. At least the school they were up against had its benefits.

Kanto Prep had daily visits of one of the head Professors in Pokemon Study. Surely Citron could go missing for a couple of minutes to look over his research, not like anyone would notice if he was gone anyway.

i alr drew it for the shadow trio SO

Fay is less inclined to battling, he just likes to take care of his pokemon. He likes staying in one city rather then going about, usually the quiet ones with a beach. He likes grass types best.
Tyler likes battling though, even the ones where he stands no chance. He has little patience for training, and he’s the sort that would challenge a gym leader even though he’s unprepared. He likes to travel A LOT. He has a relatively balanced team but he picks them mostly by seeing which one he bonds with most rather than ability.
 Emmett likes collecting!! He wants to see all the pokemon and learn about all of them. Gym badges aren’t so much his priority, but he’s up for a battle if the situation calls for it. He has a bias towards BIRD TYPES idk why i typed so much u didn’t ask for this

DA:I Companions and Pokemon Go
  • Cassandra: Team "Doesn't quite get the hype, but she kicks ass when she logs in"; she's reading the smutty fanfiction of the leads for every team on AO3. Not so good at catching Pokemon though. She's very careful with the team she builds. Team Valor. Charmander starter.
  • Varric: Only plays because his friends play; he gets dragged by Hawke to all the lures to wait for Pokemon to arrive. Has one, maybe two leveled up Pokemon, but anything else represents a commitment he's not willing to make. Hasn't joined a team yet; picked Squirtle as his starter.
  • Solas: Says he doesn't play, but he secretly does. Is the leader of a gym, high leveled Ninetails and Arcanine are his faves. Goes by a pseudonym so people don't recognize him when they go and challenge him. Team Mystic; Bulbasaur as a starter.
  • The Iron Bull: Catches every single Pokemon on sight; hates to trade them, though, so you'll find several low CP Pidgeys and Rattatas on his list. Likes to challenge gyms with low level Pokemon teams to show them that you don't need to be high level to be good. Team Instinct; Charmander as his starter.
  • Sera: Goes around dropping lures on places where people have complained about there not being a lot of Pokemon; likes helping the newbies out. Surprisingly bad at battling, but super lucky at catching the rare ones quite easily. Team Instinct; Charmander as her starter.
  • Cole: Drops lures everywhere. He buys them anytime he can. Likes to sit around while people show up to the Pokestops where he has dropped a lure and just listens and smiles when people start making friends with each other. He always says he doesn't know who dropped the lure, but everybody knows it's him because they have seen him before. Team Instinct; Bulbasaur as his starter.
  • Dorian: Horrible luck at catching Pokemon. He depletes his pokeball numbers in just one day; he camps in pokestops to stock up on them. Despite his bad luck at catching pokemon, he's pretty good at battling and making strategies for taking over gyms; hasn't yet made it to gym leader but hopes to do so one of these days. Team Mystic; Pikachu as his starter.
  • Vivienne: Like Solas, she claims she doesn't play/doesn't care for the game when in reality she is a gym leader and nobody has managed to take her off since the game started. Has rare Pokemon only and has spent no coin in raising them. Team Valor; Squirtle as her starter.
  • Blackwall: Sera managed to convince him to download the app and she can't get enough about how bad he is at it. He doesn't quite understand how battling works, especially dodging, so he has yet to win a battle. He is horrible at catching Pokemon, too; a Pidgey with CP of 25 fled from him. Team Instinct; only caught the Pikachu as a starter because he didn't figure out how to catch Pokemon until he saw the yellow fellow appear.

This is bad. This is very, very bad. Louis’ faced many Gym leaders since beginning his journey as a pokémon trainer, but he’s starting to realize he overestimated his abilities and underestimated the leader of the Fuchsia City Gym.

With a sigh, Louis steels his expression. He can’t let his fear show. Not now. “Sawsbuck, return.” He keeps his voice as steady as possible, watches his deer pokémon disappear back into its pokéball in a flash of red light. He’ll need to take it to a Pokécenter after this battle is finished, just to be safe. The Sawsbuck easily defeated the leader’s Nidorina, but was no match for the Arbok.

“This battle’s not over yet.”

Louis looks across the battle arena, locking gazes with the Gym leader. He’s right though. Louis has one more chance. He can still win this battle, still earn his Soul Badge.

He reaches down to the string of pokéballs attached to his belt. “Flareon, I choose you!”

“Arbok, Poison Sting!”

“Flareon, dodge it!” Louis yells, and his fiery pokémon does so just in time, narrowly escaping its rival’s jaws. The two pokémon continue to fight, blurs of purple and orange moving around the arena. It’s a deadly dance, and Louis knows Flareon will tire quickly if it keeps it up. “Flareon, use Flamethrower!”

The pokémon flips in midair and exhales a stream of fire from its mouth. The attack finds its target, and Arbok retreats. The giant snake is moving slower than before, though.

This is it.

Before the Gym leader can counter, Louis calls out, “Flareon, let’s finish this! Heat Wave!” With a quick nod, Flareon spins rapidly in a circle, warming up the air around it. Then, with a violent flick of its fiery tale, Flareon shoots the concentrated and molten hot gust towards its opponent. Too worn out to dodge, the Arbok is hit. It’s thrown backwards and lands at its trainer’s feet, unconscious.

“Arbok, return.” The Gym leader’s voice is quieter than before, perhaps even defeated.

Flareon runs up to Louis’ side, and he ruffles the fur on its head. “Good job, lad. We did it.”

Louis looks up as the Gym leader approaches. “Congratulations, Louis,” he says. “You’ve beaten me, and you’ve certainly earned this.”

In his extended hand sits a bright pink heart. A Soul Badge. Louis takes it, pinning it to the inside of his jacket with the rest of his collection. His dream of becoming the best pokémon trainer in the world is now one step closer to coming true.

Louis, Team Valor
