Theories on the new gym types?

#1PT_PiranhaPosted 7/12/2013 2:00:11 PM
I want to say Steel for Clemont because of science, but it could be wrong (unless there's new information I don't know).

Usually a Gym Leader's name is a pun that has to do with either their type, or their career.

Grant... Would've suspected Bug type, since it has "ant" in the name, except for Viola. And what does her name have to do with bugs? Maybe her career instead?

Am I just rambling, what are your thoughts on all of this?

Based on these screenshots...

Grant will be a Rock type gym leader and Clemont will be an Electric type gym leader.

Grant is clearly similar to granite, his badge looks like rocks, and the background is brown. Clemont has a yellow background, indicating Electric.

I think "Grant" is a pun on "Granite".

I believe Viola is a butterfly genus.

Rock for Grant and Electric for Clemont. After all Steel type Gym Leaders tend to have more brown hair, and the Electric Type Gym Leaders are blondes, excluding Wattson who's just too old for his original hair color to be known.

Just once I'd like to see a young Electric leader who doesn't have blonde hair.

Just the same as they need to find a new way to make puns for Ice leader names instead of using "ice" over and over.

Thinks about Ice type gym leaders

Wow...I never noticed that before. Well, I mean, unless you count Glacia, which is no worse of a pun

I'm pretty much agreed on Grant being a Rock Gym Leader, for the very reasons listed (his badge, his name looking like granite, brown background, plus the fact his Gym appears to be a cave), and I'm inclined to go with Electric for Clemont. Which begs the question... what's the electricity-based pun with his name?

So, if Grant is a Rock-type Leader, then does that mean he's going to be the first one fought again? Because I was really hoping that GameFreak would've given that tradition up by now.

No, the first Gym Leader is Viola.
