Gym leader you like/liked most

    Who's your favorite kalos gym leader? :3

    When i first played the games, my favorite seemed to be valerie, due to the whole 'girly fairy type' theme.

    That sure changed.

    Everyone know's who I like most now :p Yep, Lady Korrina. Its probably going to stay that way too. She means a lot to me.

    Kalos in general had good gym leaders IMO. I think i really liked most of them overall. But Korrina and Valerie stand out the most to me :3 Especially Korrina now xD hahaha...

    I'm happy to inform you that Korrina and Valerie were my favorites as well. I like them especially in the anime. I love Korrina's fun personality and the fact that she has a lot of similarities to Ash. And both gym leaders have nice designs too. Valerie and the furisode girls are living in a world of kawaiiness. <3

    Mache (Valerie) is my favorite Kalos Gym Leader since she was implied to come from Jouto, and her Kansai accent in the anime was adorable. Her avant-garde dress was quite lovely, too.

    Valerie is definitely my favourite Kalos Gym Leader because of her being a Fairy type user especially as a user of Sylveon, one of my favourite Gen 6 Pokémon. She looks very elegant and her eyes make her look mysterious although it's known she's from Johto, which explains her dress looking a bit like a furisode.

    It's hard to pick, but I'll go with Grant. I really like his team (I like the Kalos fossil Pokemon a lot, especially the Amaura family) and the rock climbing theme of his Gym.

    I'd probably go with Viola, Korrina, Olympia and Wulfric.

    • Viola - She's a photographer who also loves bugs.
    • Korrina - I like her fighting style with rollerskates.
    • Olympia - I just like her design and the mysterious aura she gives off.
    • Wulfric - He's a seriously tough guy who keeps his coat off even in the cold.

    Honourable mentions would go to Grant and Clemont: I liked how Grant's Gym was based on a rock-climbing centre, and Clemont was the typical 'mad scientist' (although maybe not mad), which was made even more prominent in the anime. I liked his quiz with his little sister Bonnie.

    Bulbapedia actually states that Valerie was originally from Johto before emigrating to Kalos. I'm guessing the Kansai accent thing was only in the Japanese originals, not the English dub.

    Her Ash-likeness is part of why i develupted a crush on her, really :p *i used to be an ash fangirl when i was younger*

    Although, i'm sure i love her way more than i ever loved Ketchum, at this point. Its a little spooky how much i like her, i'm going to flat out admit this, but, at the same time, i'm just happy i found something that helps me feel good xD They never said anything in life was perfect....

    EDIT: I know about val being from johto. I think its stated in the games, too :)

    My personality is likely somewhere between 'korrina' and 'valerie'. I have korrina's peppiness, and high energy, and i've nearly always liked pokemon battles a lot, but i'm also a huge fan of cuteness and fashion. Like Valerie.

    both of them also like to wear dresses, which i myself have liked since childhood :)

    Zakuro (Grant) definitely had the best Gym layout in the Kalos games. It was challenging to reach his spot at the summit of the rock, yet still fun. I just never liked his hairdo.

    I can relate a lot to Viola. She loves taking photos and she also like bugs.

    I've always appreciated the fact that she's the first major female Bug-type specialist. I'm not sure why she was given a photography hobby, however. To me, that doesn't seem like the kind of career that an insect fanatic would pursue.

    Wulfric is my favorite personality- and design-wise. I also like that his gym didn't use ice tiles as part of the puzzle: always hated those.

    Valerie is my favorite as well. She's so beautiful and mysterious. Plus with the whole fairy type hype, along with Sylveon, I love everything about Valerie.

    My top picks are Claire, Drayden, and Iris because they use Dragon Pokémon and have interesting Gym set ups. Claire’s Gym in Gen 2 was amazing with the lava. It’s a real shame this was changed in the remakes because seeing that lava with HGSS graphics would have been amazing to see.

    His Gym's puzzle was original, although I thought it was somewhat tedious to get through. I loved his design however, which was among my favorites in terms of Ice-type specialists.

    I liked Grant because he had cool hair, Valerie because she looked classy and Wulfric because of how strong his main Pokemon was.

    I think they did keep the lava for HG/SS. If you talk to your Pokémon inside the Gym, it says they feel hot because of the heat from the lava.

    It kind of reminds me of Tetris, where you have to fit the blocks together.

    My only issue with Mache (Valerie) was her eyes, which freaked me out. And I've always wondered if she was a relative of the Kimono Girls.
