    Which of Hoenn's Elite 4 members did everybody like the most? Please explain your choice(s) a little.

    I loved Sidney. I don't know if it's due to his punk-esque design or type specialty, but he seemed like the coolest character out of the 4. Drake's my second favorite.

    Drake is my favorite. His design is great, he looks like a ship captain (which he also is, in the remakes) and he has an awesome moustache. I am also a big fan of Dragon-types. So he's my favorite. But I like the other three as well, especially Phoebe and Glacia.

    I like Drake the most since he was pretty tough when I challenged him back in Sapphire. He wasn't as difficult to beat in the remakes in my opinion but I do like his tean postgame. Especially since he uses a Dragalge!

    I'll go with Glacia, since the fact she traveled from afar to hone her skills is pretty cool (no pun intended). Drake is a close second, because I like his entire team, especially Salamence.

    Phoebe. She was the person who introduced me to my favourite pokemon Dusclops and pretty much made me rethink how I felt about ghost types in general.

    Oh man, it's gotta be Drake. No particular reason some of my favorite characters in Video games seemed to be pirate based. For example Admiral Bobbery in Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door. Plus, you know Dragons are nothing to scoff at if you're not prepared.

    I think Phoebe's my favourite right now cuz her Hawaiian themed clothes are reminiscent of Alola and I like Phoebe's ghost type team from R/S/E. I always wondered why she didn't use Shedinja tho since it was a Hoenn ghost type and would've suited her team.

    I'll go with Drake because of his ship captain clothes. I thought he had the coolest design out of Hoenn's Elite Four and I loved his team minus his second Flygon in RS.

    There seems to be a lot of love for Drake and his getup. Do you find that the other leaders appeal to you for the same reason, or is Drake unique in that respect?

    I like Sydney because he is the closest thing to a bad boy that isn't a villain in the pokemon world
     
  11. I'd say Phoebe because... it's a slightly long story.

    So, ORAS was my first game. The only battle I lost before the elite four was against Roxanne, since I had no idea about typing advantages at all. Then I tried the elite four. I just beat Sidney, probably because I chose Torchic at the start, but when I tried Phoebe I finally realised how much I had to learn about battling. Also the whole entrance to her room was pretty freakin awesome.

    But I do love the whole Hoenn elite four.

    My favorite Elite Four member has to be Glacia. I love how her design and even her name is reminiscent of the Ice-types she uses, and I admire her "cool" personality.

    I'll go with Phoebe. The entire Hoenn Elite Four has always been memorable for me, but Phoebe stands out the most for me because I find her design the most interesting and she was the toughest to defeat during my first few RSE playthroughs (my teams couldn't handle Ghosts too well back then).

    Probably Glacia, because she's the only person other than Red that made hail frustrating (for me) to deal with.

    Sidney since he seemed genuinely cool and he was the first real Dark type specialist since Karen's team only had like three Dark types.

    I liked how Drake's spare Flygon got replaced by a Kingdra in Emerald cuz his two Flygons always gave me a hard time when I faced Drake in Ruby. I liked Drake's pirate theme as well and to me he was almost as challenging as Steven/Wallace.

    Because if Phoebe had used a Shedinja, its Wonder Guard would have caused huge issues for players who didn't have Pokemon with Ghost, Fire, Rock, or Flying moves.
     
  18. Phoebe is my favorite elite four in Hoenn I love her design and the battle in Emerald was tough Also I like Ghost type Pokemon :)

    I always wondered why Phoebe was a Ghost-type Trainer when her outfit of a beach sarong, bikini and hula flowers suggest her being a Water-type specialist. Also, is Phoebe actually originally from Alola and not Hoenn, because her outfit looks kind of Hawaiian? ;)

    Probably due to it's ability. She has sabeleye, i wonder if the dev's were worried about someone trying to skill swap it's ability (I think skill swap is a gen 3 move anyways XD) and ending up giving it to her sabeleye and being unable to win.

    My favorites in order are:

    Drake: he has the coolest team, dragons.
    Phoebe: I always thought she was cute when I was a kid. First pokemon character crush IG? Plus her thpe choice reminded me of previous elite four members.
    [slash]Will[/slash] Sydney: dark types are kewl
    Glacia: go away knock off lorelei... grr. Jk it's really because I always hated her walrein as a kid.

    Honorary mentions: Steven (does he even count? XD) he is the champion, but I always thought he was way to easy.

    Wallace: shudder... let us never speak of this again.
