    Default Gym Leader Names

    Has everyone noticed how gym leaders' names are just about always puns for their favorite type? Just put your ideas for new ones (not that Nintendo will look here for inspiration or anything).

    I can't believe you didn't get Roxanne the Hoenn rock gym leader.

    yeah if you go too far with that you can get in big trouble with perceived and real racial slurs or other slights. What if they decided to use Epandanandas, the Dark Pokemon Trainer? Or Insert famous serial killer who got the chair, The Electroctued Convict! (like the Lightning American)

    Stoney the Herb Smokin Master of Grass Pokemon?

    Raul, The Flamin' Gym Leader.

    Gypsy Scum, Queen of the Ghost Pokemon?


    The list of Gym Leader names that could just be wrong goes on.

    Okay, Qoorl, I wasn't going that far (although I do like some of them). These games are made for children, even if we aren't children.

    And Dragonfright, I found a pun in EVERY gym leader's name except a few: Jasmine (Steel) Claire (Dragon) and Tate & Liza (Psychic) (and Koga's daughter who replaced him in GSC, but that's because I forgot her name).
    If you really want, I will explain every single one to you, Kanto to Sinnoh, but you don't probably want to waste your time and I don't want to waste my breath. Just ask and I will tell you though.

    In the mean time, I hope this bad idea for a thread vanishes.

    Your right. But I would have done just all the easy ones like Brock, Roxanne, Lt. Surge, etc. just to show that you aren't completely dumb.

    Here I go.

    Brock - Rock
    Misty - Mist
    Lt. Surge - Surge
    Erica - Air
    Koga - Poison was viewed as a ninja type, Koga is a typical ninja word and name, almost like Sasuke, but I don't know Japanese culture.
    Sabrina - A certain magical TV star at the time of the game's release (Pokemon psychics are more of magicians anyhow)
    Blaine - Flame or Blaze
    Giovanni - Geo

    Falkner - Falcon
    Bugsy - Bug
    Whitney- White
    Morty - Mortal, etc
    Chuck - Norris
    Jasmine - First of three I don't know
    Brice - Ice
    Clair - Second of three I don't know
    Koga's daughter that replaced him as gym leader - I forgot her name

    Roxanne - Rocks
    Brawly - Brawl
    Wattson - Watt
    Flannery - Flame
    Norman - Normal
    Winonia - Wind
    Tate & Liza - Last of three I don't know
    Wallace - Water
    Juan - Water

    Roark - Rock
    Gardenia - Garden
    Maylene - Melee
    Crasher Wake - Crashing waves, Water wake
    Fantina - Phantom
    Byron - Iron
    Candice - Ice
    Volkner - Volt

    You asked for it. It took less time than I thought it would.

    Well, you said to "show that I wasn't completely dumb", so why not show that I am entirely not dumb? Ah-ha!
    And you don't have to read it.

    Anyhow, some wandering PD-er that never noticed the pattern can see the pun names.

    I said the EASY ones. Are all of them easy? Whitney wouldn't be easy. I never did read it, who would anyways?

    I don't know.

    Let's just let this thread die, unless the creator has the power to lock it, in which case I haven't found it.

    Glacius9, Giovanni doesn't train rock types, so your 'geo' is incorrect - it is merely a popular Italian Mafia name which goes well with his leadership of Team Rocket and how it's basically the Mafia of Pokémon. Otherwise, yes it's usually like that.

    And Hicky, you are both right, because in the game[s] Giovanni does use predominately rock/ground types. :3

    In this life of survival,
    my brother has died,
    Even though my breath has sighed...
