Your thoughts on the Gym Leader - Day 43: Drayden and Iris

#1Rupin_SalesmanPosted 7/9/2013 7:32:30 PM
I got a migraine, so I'm doing this one a bit earlier.

Today, let's talk about the eighth Gym Leader(s) of Unova, the Dragon-type specialists Drayden (in Black) and Iris (in White)!

You can talk about them in relation to the media they've been in.

I really don't feel anything towards any gym leaders these days.
Did you know if the Sun was ten feet closer to the earth we would all burn to death, and if it were ten feet further away the earth would freeze? God is great.

Drayden's the coolest "older" gym leader imo.

One of them is rather cute (ideal) while the other looks tough (reality) it really showed the truth and ideals of an 8th gym leader.

I like Drayden but he was underplayed.

Also I kind of wish that Iris and Drayden used different Pokemon than one another besides the Pokemon's gender. At least one. Iris could have used Zweilous instead of Fraxure.

I'm also happy that Iris eventually became a champion.

They both were good, no thank to there B/W team. Drayden is pretty good but Iris impressive me a lot by not only defeating Alder but becoming the champion in the reverse order of Blue.

And Iris is my Wifu...

She lack glamor but has a very good pokemon team.
What do you guys think about the fairy type?

It's interesting that Drayden was training Iris to be the champion. Drayden would probably be really hot without that ridiculous beard.
