The Monai Region is a project I have been working on for a little while now.
The Monai Regoin consists of the mainland and a series of islands. The region has every kind of environment chock full of unique pokemon. The starter town is Black Pine City which is found on the west coast of the mainland. Unlike the games the starter town in Monai is a moderately sized city not a little town with two houses and a lab.
Here are some of the gym leaders i've made sprites for so far.
Rook Town Gym Leader in a run down airplane hanger specializing in flying pokemon. Beating him gets you the Glide Badge.
SIDE NOTE: When you defeat his brother Wilbur (who uses much more powerful Flying type pokemon at the Hawkitt City Gym) you will be able to fly back and forth between Rook Town and Hawkitt City which is on an island with two other cities.
Cape Seabreeze Gym Leader specializing in ground/water pokemon. Beating her gets you the Scale Badge.
Canyonpass Town Gym Leader specializing in fossil pokemon. Beating him gets you the Erosion Badge.
SIDE NOTE: i decided to give all the pokemon that are regenerated from fossils a Fossil Type designation since none of them actually have any rock type moves or abilities.
Illume City Gym Leader specializing in electric type pokemon. Beating her gets you the Shock Badge.
I haven't thought up a name for the city he's in but he secializes in bug pokemon. Beating him gets you the Swarm Badge.
I haven't thought up a name for the city she's in but he secializes in fighting pokemon. Beating her gets you the Dueling Badge.
Central City Gym Leader specializing in poison pokemon. Beating her gets you the Venom Badge.
SIDE NOTE: I got tired of seeing a million Nurse Joys and figured there had to be at least one Joy that wanted to be more than just a nurse.
Gym Leader at the Mt. Froston Ski Resort who specializes in ice pokemon. Beating her gets you the Cornice Badge.
Gym Leader at the Amaranthine Cemetery in a converted mousoleum who specializes in ghost pokemon (obviously). Beating him gets you the Eternity Badge.
Here is also the leader of the evil group of the region.
This is Vincenzo aka 'Don Vino'. He's the leader of the mafia ring known as 'The Syndicate'.
