      Marlon is alright. What exactly was so horrible about him?

      He seems like a nice, upstanding kind of guy, and he is one.

          Marlon isn't an idiot; he's laid back. That put him in my "Winners" book.

          Pretty much what the above said. Just by watching his interview on TV, I could tell that Marlon's personality isn't that bad.

          Kinda random to be hating on Marlon of all people, but he was great, IMO. He used my favorite type and one of my favorite Pokemon(Jellicent). I dont know how you could hate him.

              I thought he was meh. We had no background and he seemed kinda copy-pasted from Brawly.

              I thought his dialogue was pretty lame and his design is a bit odd (weird tan and whatever he is wearing). Other than that, I thought he was okay. Him and his gym were very underwhelming concepts as the last one, which is my biggest problem with him.

                He was annoying. I liked Brawly better. Then again I seen him in the anime. That is probably what made me like him. I just don't really like Marlon because of the way he was acting toward Plasma. I know he helped a lot,but I still didn't like the way he acted.

                  No. Not really.
                  He was doing exactly as he said.
                  He didn't really care about the doings of Team Plasma, but he;s willing to help you because you need it.

                  Just be thankful he let you on the frigate.

                    There's no reason one of the player's own monsters, namely one knowing Fly, couldn't carry them onto the ship.
                    I felt his actions and/or lack thereof were pointless and nonsensical.

                        He was okay, I guess. I didn't really like or hate'em. To me, he was just another person you met on the game. Yeah, he was kinda irresponsible; I mean, Plasma's going around freezing everything and he's just gonna turn a blindeye on it...yeah, that's responsible. Also, I found his dialogue...eh. LOL Weird to say the least.

                        But nah, I didn't hate da dude.

                          His accent can be hard to get used to but he isn't so bad.He is more laid back than the other leaders.

                          Marlon is one of my fave Gym Leaders ever, he's my fave of the Water Gym Leaders tbh.

                          I love his hair, and that awesome accent of his. He's so cool.

                          Marlon? Bad? Annoying? Y'all must be on something cray, because he's so legit. I love Marlon. He's a lot like I am, tbh. Plasma did nothing wrong to him or his town, so he doesn't find a need to step in. However, he sees that the player wishes to fight, but sees the player's only reasoning is, "Because I have to", and warns him to gain a better reason to do so other than, "It's the right thing to do." Such as why it is the right thing to do. Why MUST you fight a battle that was never yours to fight? Marlon's character is much deeper than the anti-Marlon groups have come to make him out to be. His dialogue isn't some black and white one-meaning statement, it has a deeper meaning to it.

                          "It's not my style to go around decidin' Team Plasma's bad without thinkin' 'bout it just 'cause everyone says so!" We always say we must make our own judgments based on what we experience, rather than what we see or hear. Yet when a fictional character says it, it somehow becomes stupid and annoying? He just found his role to be the voice of reason, not to be the one on the front line. If you ask me, it's about time we finally have a character like that.

                          Marlon is one of those guys that just has to show you how much stronger then you he is, like the people at the gym.

                          Marlon is definitely not one of the best gym leaders, but he's definitely not one of the worst. For me, he's in-between. His personality was laid back yes, but that's how he was designed to be.

                            Marlon's alright. Didn't particularly love him, but didn't dislike him either.

                              To me, he's not exactly the most memorable gym leader but he isn't bad. I've never really hated a gym leader before, I either like them or I'm pretty neutral about them.

                              The only gym leader I can say I "dislike" (and that's a stretch saying that) is Elesa in BW, I thought it was pretty arrogant of her to step in on Bianca and her dad's little feud in Nimbasa. And gurl got weave, nobody grows like 3-4 feet of hair in two years.

                              Marlon is awesome. idk how you can make a thread like this and not even lead it off with any good examples...seems a bit lackluster to me, but whatever. I have no problems with Marlon. He seems like a cool dude.

                                I'll be the minority that doesn't quite understand why people dislike him so much. /shrugs.

                                I mean, he helps you out regardless, right? I don't see any bad things about him, even dialogue-wise. He lives in a small, isolated island that Team Plasma hasn't even so much has touched, so there's no reason for Marlon to be an expert on them or anything, because he hasn't even heard of them until the player arrives.

                                He lowered the ladder for you to get on to Team Plasma's ship, and then he went back home to continue surfing/swimming/whatever cool things Marlon does. Didn't bother me a bit.
