Born to Lead #5 – Roxie

Cody

Welcome to “Born to Lead”, a weekly segment where I talk about one of the many Gym Leaders of the Pokemon world. We’ll be covering the bio, team, and pieces of random trivia that each leader has to offer across the main series games in which they were introduced.

This week, we’re finally heading up to Unova to cover what is somewhat a rarity in Pokemon – a Poison-type Gym Leader. Poison hasn’t always been the best type out there, but if anyone was going to give the Poison type a good name, it would have to be Roxie of Virbank City! Doubling as a bass-playing rockstar in her band, Roxie is among the most memorable gym leaders out there, and just might be my favorite of all time due to her awesome gym, and her rocking design and personality.

In short, 2014′s Eevee Friendly was 10 daily rotation battles using a team of 4 Kalos-born ‘Eeveelutions’. The Junior and Masters competitions were held for 3 days, roughly around 7/10 to 7/13. This was a very short tournament, I personally only played 2 of the 3 days by accident. Inside this article are the most effective Moves, Abilities, Natures, and Held Items which worked best for the many forms of Eevee and trainers around the world. These percentages could help you train the best ‘Eeveelution’ possible! Hit the jump take a look at the results!

Welcome to “Born to Lead”, a weekly segment where I talk about one of the many Gym Leaders of the Pokemon world. We’ll be covering the bio, team, and pieces of random trivia that each leader has to offer across the main series games in which they were introduced.

This week, we’re going back to the beginning – the VERY first gym leader that fans who’ve been around since the original Red and Blue encountered. I’m talking, of course, about the hard-rocking Brock! The starting gym leader of Pewter City in Kanto has left quite an impression on a lot of players, and it’s time to delve into his simplistic battle that introduced us all to the concept of Pokemon Gyms.

Olivia

It’s summer time here in America and many people are going on vacation. A very popular and traditional travel destination is a certain place with lots of sand, heat and water. It’s time to hit the beach! The ocean has always been a large role in Pokémon games.
