    Who is your favourite out of all 8 of the Sinnoh chapter of Gym Leaders?

    I have quite a few -

    1. Candice - She's a pretty tough girl to be wearing a sweater tied around her waist and bared legs in the coldest point in Sinnoh.
    2. Maylene - She's a fierce fighter who uses a Lucario, one of my favourite Pokémon.
    3. Roark - He just has that sort of geeky charm to him, maybe because of his glasses. I like how the games show the deep ties Roark has with his father Byron, the Steel Gym Leader of Canalave City.

    And which Sinnoh Gym Leader(s) is/are your favourite(s)?

    Either Crasher Wake or Candice for me. I just love Crasher Wake's gym design in Platinum, and Candice is just plain cool, both in the anime and in the games, I like her design a lot.

    I personally love them all but my favorite is Volkner for being the one who stands out the most.
  5. Volkner! I really love his personality of him being burnt out. Also he's so cool *_*

    My favorite is Volkner. The main reason is that I can relate to his burnout on Pokemon battles, that has happened to me as well as I have been burnt out on Pokemon. Most notably at times when Gen 4 was the newest. I experienced a very small and short burnout while playing through Diamond, it actually started right before I was about to battle Volkner and ended once I had trained up two new Pokemon as my "team" and beat the Elite Four with them. The second one lasted during the latter half of Gen 4, for more than two years. I later got my interest for Pokemon back, while Volkner got over his burnout and regained his passion for Pokemon battles after I had beat him. I also remember Volkner being rather difficult to beat in Platinum even if he was the last Gym Leader in the game. For these reasons, he is my favorite.

    Apart from Volkner, I am also a big fan of Candice and Crasher Wake. I like Candice's talk about focus, and Crasher Wake is just a really cool character in general.

    So I voted for these three.

    I also once burnt myself out on Pokémon for quite a long time (I broke off it after Ruby & Sapphire). Because of this, I missed out on the Gen 4, Gen 5 and Gen 6 games when they first came out (I didn't get the Gen 6 games straight away because I only had a normal DS, not a 3DS, at the time, while not getting the Gen 4 and Gen 5 games was due to my burnout). I finally got back into Pokémon in 2013 with Black (1, not 2), and from there on I'm a Pokémaniac again. :)

    So you could say I was a bit like Volkner during that time. ;)

    Roark is my longtime number 1 favourite. I've always found him adorable (love the glasses and longer hair) and his Gym battle introduced me to the Cranidos line, which is one of my favourites. Plus, there's the whole mining thing, which I like as digging in the Underground is one of my favourite features of the Sinnoh games.

    I really, really love this whole group of Gym Leaders, though, so I picked everyone on the poll as I always do when given the chance. :p

    1) Her style

    2) How tough she is

    3) How she also competes against you in the Contests

    4) Who doesn't love ghost types

    5) Kalos reference way before XY even came out?!

    Fantina is French, and Kalos is based on France, so were Nintendo/Game Freak planning Kalos two generations in advance?! :eek:

    I still consider Gardenia to be my favourite Sinnoh gym leader cuz I like her design and type specialty, as well as her Platinum version gym design. My second favourite is Crasher Wake and my third favourite is Candice. :3

    I'd have to pick Volkner because my battle with him brings back fond memories of my childhood and I liked how he enjoyed a tough battle against good challengers.

    I've always been a fan of Candice. I like her cute looks and cheerful personality,
    as well as her whole rematch team(especially Weavile). That being said, I also like Gardenia and Crasher Wake, the former for her fear of Ghost types(I'd like to see her in a future game with any of the Grass/Ghost Pokemon) and the latter for his personality and theme song.

    Imagine Gardenia's reaction when she finds out about Pumpkaboo, Gourgeist, Phantump, Trevenant, Decidueye or Dhelmise. :p :D

    Crasher Wake, though Candice is a very close second. How can you not love Crasher Wake's design, dialogue and his own theme music. He's a rather easy Gym Battler to beat but hey he's fun.

    Volkner would be my favorite, given that he's one of the strongest Gym Leader (even compare to other region Gym Leaders) and i like the fact that he got bored about battling because there's no worthy challenger and even will try to challenge E4+Champion had we didn't beat him at that time..

    My favorite has to be Fantina, because of her elegant design. I also like how she's French and uses Ghost types :)

    I don't know why, I just love her design. And I find her being afraid of the Old Chateau to be... funny.

    On the topic of gym leaders, I'll never understand why everyone keeps referring to Wake that way.
    ... I mean Crasher Wake.

    My favorite Sinnoh Gym Leaders are...

    1. Crasher Wake: He has a cool personality, and his gym design in Platinum is great!

    2. Candice: I really like her design. Also, I find some of her dialouges fun... "Candice is on fire! I'm blazing hot! Hot enough to melt Ice-type Pokémom! I need a battle to cool me down!" xD
