    But then again, when have gym exterior's ever been particularly good(bar Opelucid and maybe Driftveil)? Bearing in mind that this is also the first generation with unique exterior designs for each gym.

    Considering it's clearly in Nimbasa and has the massive, glowing gym symbol on the front, I'd say yes.

    I think it has the most spectacular visuals as well (inside, I mean). They really pulled all stops with that one.

    As far as flashy gyms go, Cheren got the raw end of the deal.

    Yeah Drayden wanting Iris to look like that is amazing, but even more amazing the entire build up to it. The protag is oblivious to who she is exactly, and finding her at the end of the league, in that room, with that look, and that music is just great. Even better is for those who played BW and are going into this without spoilers are gonna be blow away. The backdrop is also pretty amazing, representing the E4 and all.

    I'm really excited about the World Tournament Type Expert listings. 8 types have an additional trainer and since all the others are gym leaders, I wouldn't put it past Game Freak to use this stage as an opportunity to have the 6th gen gym leaders make cameos!
    The additional types and the order I think it'd be is: Bug (Walter) -> Dark (Vito, Illusane, Bonnie) -> Ghost (Rensuke) -> Psychic (Cart) -> Poison (Botsuri) -> Steel (Thatcher) -> Ground (Ieji) -> Dragon (Ryuichi)
    Sure there are 3 dark-type trainers added, but it could be like the striaton gym leaders where you only fight one. Plus it's about time we have a dark-type gym leader!
    And sure on my list Dragon is last again, but I think it's a toss-up between Steel and Dragon as the final leader.

    As neat as that would be, I really doubt these guys are going on to be gym leaders in gen 6. they're not all even named after plants!
    I'm sure fans will take off with it regardless, though, yeesh.

    What sprites do those guys use? Are they all Ace Trainers, or do they use player/GL sprites, or have custom sprites, or some random mix or different ones, or what?

    I also hope they will be the 6th gen's Gym Leaders, atleast there wouldn't be any Grass, Water, Fire and Rock gyms.

    Definitely not custom sprites, considering there's no such sprites in the rips.
    other than that we don't know yet

    Wonder what they say before the match

    Botsuri is described as having a creepy laugh and wants to experiment on you.
    Ieji wants to become a Ground-type Pokemon. ("I will! I'm serious!!")
    Cult is weird, she talks about seven-fingered hands singing ice-cream-flavoured psychics, then falls asleep.
    Walter seems to have no personality to speak of whatsoever.
    Rensuke is a 'shock creator' who lives in a haunted house.
    Ryuuichi talks about the pride of dragons, and was apparently 'chosen by dragons'. (His name can mean '#1 Dragon')
    Thatcher says she can withstand any attack with her Steeled heart, then cries when you beat her.
    Vito turned to Evil because he 'sinned' by stealing a 10-yen coin someone dropped on the ground. (about 8p)
    Illusane is described as the 'Queen of Evil' and has a typical Japanese ojousama laugh. (stuck-up lady)
    Bonnie is a coward who decides that anything goes as long as he wins, even running away to avoid losing.

    (Note that all genders except Illusane(Female), Rensuke, Walter and Eiji(Male) are implied from mannerisms, and could be incorrect)

    Aren't most NPCs, especially irrelevant ones, insane anyway?

    So I'm guessing Botsuri is a Doctor & Ieji is one of the little kid types (Maybe a School Boy or a Youngster)

    Ryuuichi might be an Ace Trainer or Veteran, since the Dragon Tamer class is absent and the Aces/Vets are peppered through Drayden's gym

    Not to this extent.
    Usually they just go off about shorts or office work or something related to their profession/area.

    usually not

    Favourite character in B2W2 confirmed.
    This is Turtwig, he was the most under appreciatted starter in Diamond & Pearl. If you picked Turtwig as your starter, put this in your sig . Started by Dax-360

    Ummm what. Why are these people such freaks, like seriously. Seems odd to give such... unique personalities to NPCs who don't do much.

    e: I guess these are this gen's version of frontier brains, though, so it sort of makes sense.

    Maybe she will show up in a future game as a gym leader or Elite Four kind of like Caitlin.

    Bonnie sounds like the perfect dark-type user, hell id love to see him/her in a future game, sadly seems like all these guys are WT exclusive.



    o.o

    The WT attracts all the crazies. I kinda hope they show up in later games now.

    Unless someone used Google Translate on her dialogue (which would explain a lot of the Funhouse of Horror above), this biatch be crazy.

    I'm sorry to do this, but I won't be posting in the Serebii Discussion Forums anymore. My account here will remain open for trading/chatting with friends, but please be patient for a reply as my visits here will be fewer.

    I've left for the greener pastures of Bulbagarden Forums, where free speech is still allowed and the rules are followed by all, including those who enforce them.

    It's been a fun 3 years ~

    It's hard for them to become full-fledged characters in later games because, well, chances are they don't even have their own designs. They're just like named characters from some Trainer classes.

    So has anyone who knows Japanese figured out what in Arceus' name Giovanni is doing in the World Tournament. What does he say when you fight him?

    That's not a big problem, really
    "We got makeovers"
    They don't even really need to address it


    That said they'll probably never show up again outside of future world tournaments as filler

    That's what I immediately thought. What does "seven-fingered hands singing ice-cream-flavoured psychics" even mean? O.O

    "I am a wanted criminal. Do not notify anyone. Unovans are idiots. I never had this trouble in Kanto; I was apprehended by a ten-year-old. Now, allow me to create more fanon."

    Something like that, I don't know.
