    Am I the only one who noticed Elesa's hair dye? It looks kinda nice to me.
    It certainly doesn't scream "masculine" either. I'm sure most would think of it being feminine, what with the Pink and it's wool being rather stylish.

    Elesa being a model having a Pokemon that has wool which is used to make clothing seem very fitting in my opinion.

    I agree. I'd rather Elesa had a Tynamo or a Joltik on her team instead of that sheep. But I guess Game Freak really wants to showcase Generation 1-4 Pokemon again. Oh well.

    Both would be very underwhelming for a fourth Gym. It's a shame they evolve so late, Galvantula would be very fitting for her.

    But Tynamo's evolutions are slightly ugly and supermodels don't like spiders.

    Actually, Tynamo is pretty scary with its vast movepool, and Joltik's BST of 319 overwhelming....

    All joking aside, I wouldn't ally expect a fashion model to own a giant spider, but I suppose a Zebra is odd as well. Maybe Elesa uses her nw giant cloak, drags it on carpet to charge static electricity, then uses the static electricity to charge Flaaffy?

    Stripes, they are fashionable I do believe, well at less stripes are used for designs. I find Zebstrika to be very fitting for Elesa. Emolga I'm not sure how it would fit in with Elesa being a model but Emolga is clearly meant to be cute so there's that at less.

    I'm glad Elesa has a Flaaffy, I don't believe it's ever been used by a Gym Leader(Excluding rematches, which I don't think it was used much then either).

    I see no problem with her having a flaaffy, I think it fits her.

    Have you even payed attention to the new artwork for Unova? You start out in the southwest corner of the region and provided those underwater tunnels don't go to Castelia City you would have to go north to Driftveil, then cross over to Nimbasa and then south to Castelia.

    There could always be rematches.

    Is that an official rule?

    Have you paid attention to it? There's no pathway from Virbank to Driftveil. It's all vegetation. Unless the underwater tunnel or a boat brings you to Driftveil, there's no pathway there.

    Additionally, the badge case confirms that Castelia is the third Gym, because the Insect Badge's outline is visible. After Virbank, we aren't going to Driftveil, we are going to Castelia, and chances are, it's by underwater tunnel. We've known this for a fairly long amount of time.

    I think its going along with the social stereotypes that girls will only like cute pokemon.

    Still it would be interesting to see if the underwater tunnels are just visual like the bridges or if battles and stuff happen along them.

    As disastrous of consequences I could see for that, I'd love to battle someone in the underwater tunnel. Your rival, maybe? I've never been a fan of gauntlet-style trainer battles (where you literally just walk straight down a road and have trainers challenge you left and right, like on the Nugget Bridge in Kanto or on pretty much any Cycling Road), but having a rival battle there would be cool.

    Is that an official rule? Pink and fluffy aren't characteristics exclusives to females.

    This is Pokemon, of course it is. Honestly though, a gym leader hasn't had a member of that line before. It's refreshing.

    No path up to the Giant Chasm, no paths near Mistralton, path to Tubeline bridge covered in vegetation, the PokéTranfer lab off the main path with no visible path to it, no path over to Route 17. So yeah, no path on the map does not mean there won't be one.

    I already said in an earlier post that I had not seen the badge case before.

    How many guys do you see wearing something pink and fluffy on a regular basis? Of course it's feminine.

    It's hard to tell, since her BW team consisted simply of the only Electric-types you could have met up until that point.
