Hi Cardinal.

So, I guess you like Flying-types?

Make sure to get involved in the latest topic. Oh, and btw I love Winona's design, I think she had the best design of the Hoenn Gym Leaders.

Well, the announcing of a game out of the blue, is pretty different from just giving one of the key characters in a game a twin out of the blue. I mean there had been no signs of it at all, so it'd just be pretty weird. Not to mention that it just seems a bit dumb that the twin would suddenly take over the gym from their sibling :P

What are your thoughts on this? Would you like to see her in the anime just to get to know her more than just the games?

Yeah, Janine was just never quite explained in my opinion. I mean, we know that she took over the gym from Koga after he became part of the Elite 4, and that she's his daughter, but I don't recall anything else being explained about her. So yeah, I'd like to see her in the anime, but the only way that I could see that happening was if they made the protagonists return to Johto or Kanto like they did with Battle Frontier, but with all the B2/W2 stuff happening right now, they have a lot of other stuff to take care of, so I don't see that happening at any point.

An alternative could be if she made an appearance in later games, where she would be more explained and stuff, but that is also unlikely to happen. I guess Janine is just one of the characters that we'll never get to know much about.

Janine should probably have her backstory expanded a bit and I'd prefer if it was done in the game as the anime has gotten horrible. Though saying this she is explored a bit more in the manga which is really cool! If you guys havent read it and are interested in her you should probably check it out xD

Well, I was kind of disappointed not to see Janine when Ash returned to Kanto, seeing as Janine is supposed to be the gym leader then. But I guess, Janine is really a minor character (despite being a gym leader herself). I guess, there is really not much of a story behind her.

Well, Gamefreak has been known to be stressed by being behind schedule and stuff with Pokémon games, at least with the earlier ones, so it could be that Janine was just a quick decision for G/S/C that they didn't want to work any more on. I mean, back with R/B/Y, the lack of time for finishing the game was what spawned MissingNo, so yeah.

Though I am not discluding the possibility of them suddenly giving her a story, I just don't think it's possible, since it has been like 12 years or something since the character was made xD

She has a bit of a back story in the manga people! Why you ignore me! Shes definitely more prominent in the manga then any other pokemon related thing.

I personally think its cool how she takes on the gym when her father gets promoted, shows a lot of dedication to her family. We could nearly look at her as a member of the club as she surely trained under Koga when he was a gym leader!

Also I think the reason shes not in the anime is because they always reset it meaning basically no time ever seems to pass in the pokemon world so Koga would probably still be the gym leader of Fuschia City in that timeline?

She has? I've only ever read a small part of the manga, and that was only in the Kanto part of the story. Sorry I didn't notice.

And yeah, that is quite some dedication they are showing there. Though it kinda makes me wonder, how are gym leaders even selected to be gym leaders. I mean, is it like the previous gym leader gives some candidates to whoever is in control of the league team, and let them decide on a fitting gym leader to further occupy the gym? Maybe that's worth making a topic on?

And yeah, you're probably right. One of the must confusing things about the Pokémon anime is how in the world they make sense out of making almost every episode a new day in the journey, which is well over 700 episodes by now. That would be close to two years in the real world, including the episodes that take off from the previous ones.

Would you like to see Janine in the anime just to get to know her more than just the games?

The Anime, Games & Manga are in completely different development or something like that, correct? The Anime developers could be like against her or something. I don't know..but I did like her. Her dad Koga was cool, and I'm sure they wanted to spice things a little & make an interesting change with Koga moving up to the Elite Four with his daughter taking over the gym. You know, just like how Blue took over after Giovanni in the Viridian Gym.

Does anyone remember Aya from the Anime when Ash, Misty & Brock went for the Soul Badge? Would you rather see Aya take over as gym leader in-game?

I'd love to get to know more of Janine. Getting to know her in-game just wasn't enough. And I'm someone that's clueless about her because I don't actually read the manga. If they could just make at least an episode of her in the anime, then that would complete my curiosity about her.

As a watcher of the anime at that time, I totally remember her. At first I thought she was the actual gym leader (lol clueless 8-year-old me) I guess she would also be a perfect fit for gym leader. If Janine gets promoted or leaves, then she should totally take over. :)

My memories from the first season are quite faint actually, so I think I should get down to watching it again. Though as far as I remember Aya, I would have to say no. I mean, as Koga's little sister she, she should've been heir to the gym leader spot over Janine, though neither of them appears outside of their respective part of the franchise, so that would be hard to debate.

Though to be honest, with the battle skills that Aya showed, I think I'd rather go with Janine. They weren't exactly impressive, and oh well. I just don't see her as a good gym leader.

Alrighty, 4 days has passed since the last new topic discussion.

There has been Elite Four members who mono Dark-types, but is the only type lacking for a Gym. Do you think there is a reason behind this and how do you feel about this? Other than Dark-type being "just plain good!"

Dark types are plain good, no other reason.

I am guessing that there are few Dark-types who are eligible to be used by early gym leaders, and there are more types fitting for the final slots for the leadership. I think this is the reason why Dark-types are always pushed to the Elite Four.

we could just stop this talk right now, and agree that Dark-types are good.

Do you think there is a reason behind this and how do you feel about this? - Well there's no reason to not have a dark type Gym Leader, maybe they like to keep the type orientation similar but I have a feeling in the next Generation we'll see this for the first time because 16 years without a Dark type leader but all other types covered is too long IMO.

I'm not sure, but as far as I know, Dark types are one of the less popular types, and kinda boring compared to others. I mean, I personally think it reminds me a bit of some other types, but then again, the same could be said for Steel types, who where introduced in the same generation as Dark types. But, well, maybe the only explanation is that they actually are just too strong additions to gym leader teams?

To be honest, I'd really like to see a Dark type gym at one point. Though, this may be because I'm still stuck in third generation, but I honestly can't recall that many Dark type Pokémon, so designing a whole gym for them sounds like a pretty difficult idea without having to use the same Pokémon over and over again, especially if it was one of the later gyms.

Well, the reason why they didn't make a Dark-Type gym is that it's less challenging(It can only deal normal damage) than other Types of Gym and it has less pure dark-type pokemon and half and secondary dark-type, they can use Skuntank, Tyranitar, Drapion, Sneasel, Weavile, etc. Just like Jasmine's pokemon, she has 2 Magnemites (Electric-Steel Type) and Steelix (Steel-Ground Type).

I really, really like to see a Dark-Type Gym for future Pokemon games, but it takes a long time to design a whole interior of the gym and ideas on which dark-type pokemon to use to make it more challenging like the other Gyms

I almost forgot that I've made userbars for the club :D

Is it ok if I choose half of that gym leader? I'm a boy so it's awkward if I choose liza or sabrina.

Sure thing, although I don't see how its awkward to choose a female leader xD

Would you like to see more various-type Gym Leaders? (Ex: Blue)

Yes, I wouldn't mind more multi-typed Gym Leaders. Though, the whole point of gyms is to defeat a certain specific type itself in order to obtain a badge. I suppose it could work. They would just have to use Pokemon like StunFisk and such. Though, I think it would be tricky matching Pokemon with secondary types with the type of gym it would be, considering isn't a large ratio of multi-type Pokemon out there.

I......would rather see more single-type Pokemon Gym Leaders. Having more various-type leaders makes things less challenging. That way I can plan which Pokemon I can use and how I'm going to defeat the leader. With a various-type leader, I usually just jump in without preparing myself and that's where I end up losing. :|

About the topic, of course, but I'd rather have its style somewhat like the kanto gym leaders on 2nd Gen games. Having a various type leader makes it more challenging, well for me because I prefer fighting without using type advantages(which explains why I like attributes better).

If anyone has seen the Anime with Ash and Misty traveling to the Orange League to meet up with Tracey, this should be an interesting question:

Which of the Orange League's Gym Leader Battle was your favorite? Explain.
