I want to thank Magnitude Reviews for choosing me for this Pokemon Tag.
As most of us know already, Nintendo already released the official app called “Pokémon Go”. In this app, users of iPhone and Android can finally capture Pokémon hidden outside in the real-world. This augmented device has became the greatest sensation for fans. As a fan who enjoyed the classic anime, I just had to get it. What better way to celebrate the release by writing a post on my ideal gym. This is my first time doing this and I may be breaking the rules, so excuse for this. It’s been a long time since I played a Pokémon game.
After looking at Magnitude Reviews‘ gym and the YouTube video by Bird Keeper Toby, I have been thinking really hard on what would my gym would like and what kind of Pokémon will I use if I was a gym leader. In a nutshell in the video Bird Keeper Toby discusses on what kind type of Pokémon will he use on his gym, what will it look like and what kind of trainers would the trainer would have to face. Magnitude Reviews mentioned that he would be a ground-type gym leader.
If I was gym leader, I would be a water-type gym leader. I would most likely be the 3rd gym leader the trainer would have to face. If the trainer defeats me, they can get the HM surf.
As for design, I would want it based on Pastoria City but with more fishing docks and boats. I want my gym to look like a combination of Pastoria City and a safari zone to make it look like lake. The reason why is because my family enjoy fishing and we enjoy being with nature and away from the city and people. I like the smell of fresh air and clean trees, the perfect place to fish.
Something like this (the pic on the right is from Knotts Berry Farm):
The gym will have fishing shop that will have a Pokémon healers. There will also be small boats that will take the trainer to different big boats where the trainer can battle.
The trainer will also have to face fishermen, tourists, and captains. The common Pokémon that each will use will be a Buizel, Poliwags, Poliwhirls, or Psyduck. The combination is random on the trainers.
Gym Leader Quote:
After the trainer defeats the other trainers, the trainer will have the honor of fighting me on a stadium floating in the middle of the water. Here is what I would say:
“Hey you finally made it. What took you so long? I hope you don’t fall asleep now. After this, I am going to wash you away with my skills and send you across the sea. Brace yourself!”
My Pokémon team:
Badge and TMs
If the trainer defeats me, they will be awarded with the Fen Badge and a TM. Unfortunately, I don’t what to give for a TM but the trainer will get the HM Surf.
That’s my ideal gym and these are Pokémon I would choose to use in battle. I hope you guys enjoyed this special tag post. I think I have messed on the Pokémon guidebook as a gym leader but I tried. It’s been a long time since I played Pokémon. I wanted to incorporate the Pokémon from Kanto and Sinnoh.
Here are the people I tag for this Pokémon tag. I can’t wait to see what you got:
Very creative and cool, Matt! I think I have just run out of ideas while reading this. Haha. I wonder how I’d do mine. If you don’t mind, I’d like to take my time. Pokemon Go os my first pokemon game after all. XD
Thank you Rose for reading this post. Sure, take your time. There is no rush. I just wanted to let you know I chose you :)! I would love to see what you do. ^_^
I’m so glad to have seen you be able to take some time out of your day to make this post of yours 😛
I am really interested in seeing anything and everything that people can come up with. Also those 5 people that you tagged… those were a few that I was considering on tagging, but decided not to because I felt like tagging 5 people was more than enough.
As for handing out an HM, that’s kinda something that doesn’t exist in the pokemon universe. Maybe something like Brine or Scald would have worked well.
I find the idea of having a fishing dock being the general idea around a gym to be a great idea.
As for the pokemon themselves, all are excellent choices. Tho if you do a tiny bit of digging in the interwebs you would notice how the highest level pokemon in a 3rd gym leader’s team is Level 32… so sadly the blastoise wouldn’t happen but in gym 4 it is totally possible. Just wanted to point that out for you 😛
Also I love seeing people who are willing to put their gym anywhere between #1-5 which I find to be the hardest for most people to compromise on different things. Like limiting the amount of pokemon or different types of moves that a pokemon wont be able to learn at that time.
Also I highly suggest you check out some of the newer games when you get the chance, they are great 😛
Thank you for reading this tag and critiquing. I will admit, I did have some errors on making this post since my Pokemon game knowledge is rusty. At first, I wanted to use 6 Pokemon but I decided to cut down to few instead. Before picking, I was going to choose electric, dark, or steel. Anyway, I was happy to do this post and I thank you for tagging me. 🙂
By the way. Crawdaunt is the best water pokemon around… just saying 😛
Love that guy.
Crawdaunt is cool looking Pokemon. Living like Larry lol.

Damn…this is so hard… TT I’m just a first generation expert. I stopped watching when Misty left damn it!
I’m a fan of the first generation too. The last and only game I played was the fourth generation, Diamond and Pearl. Misty leaving was a sad part of my childhood.
I want to join your Gym! Water types rule!
…Just don’t make me the one with like 5 Magikarp please.
You want to join my gym? Awesome. Yeah water types are great. I won’t make you use a Magikarp. Go for the ones that you prefer. If I was to recommend water types, I say choose Psyducks, Poliwags, or Goldeens. Thank you for joining ^_^.
Who else wants to join XD?
I’d probably base my team on my rain team: Politoed, Raichu, Azumarill, and Ludicolo. Yes, Raichu isn’t a water type, but you cannot resist the cuteness! (And Lightningrod).
Hey that’s an impressive team :). I like how you included Raichu on your team. Raichu can defeat any water type Pokemon haha. Raichu is cute. ^^
Raichu is like my MVP online. Nothing like locking someone into a bad move with Encore!
Pretty cool if you ask me. With rain dance in play, Raichu’s electricity will be too much for the Pokemon. They would all be toast.
