Your thoughts on the Gym Leader - Day 38: Burgh

#1Rupin_SalesmanPosted 7/4/2013 8:06:53 PM
Today, let's talk about the third Gym Leader of Unova, along with being the most fabulous Bug-type specialist, Burgh!

You can talk about him in relation to the media he's been in.

My snuggle bug? He's the best! His gym gimmicks are really cool and I love how he puts his paintings up for everyone to see. He's really talented and has an interesting preference in Pokemon. His signature is one of my favorite pokemon, Leavanny! It's the little things that count.

However I will admit that his gym isn't very difficult to beat. X4 weakness to fire AND flying makes Leavanny super fragile. Also I thought Struggle bug was a poor choice in TM for his gym seeing as none of his pokemon have very good Sp. Atk. It's useful in multi and double battles, but for a 1-1 gym battle, I think a strong physical move would have complimented Leavanny better.

The bug gym leaders are weak and every one of them looks kind of nerdy (in all gens). In my opinion, unless there is a super strong bug (which there isn't), the bug type gym is rather repetitive and a waste.

Thought Burgh was a 'she' when I first played White-JP

He's one of my least favorite gym leaders in all regions.

He's a bad gym leader. It doesn't help that he isn't even dressed like an artist.

I am happy that his TM displaced Stealth Rock, though.

I'm not the largest fan of him. While the Dweeble in his party prevents it from getting completely swept, I think having a larvesta instead of a venipede would have been better IMO. Of course, his personality is still annoying >.<.

I found him annoying, though that tends to be the case for all Gym Leaders that have an overly flamboyant style.
