Your thoughts on the Elite Four member - Day 9: Glacia

#1Rupin_SalesmanPosted 7/27/2013 9:00:04 PM
Today, let's talk about the third member of Hoenn's Elite Four, the Ice-type specialist, Glacia!


You can talk about her in relation to the media she's been in.

There's not much to say here except that Sealeo can be a pain.

Go to Gamestop, buy a Steam card, and use it to purchase Ys Origin. You won't be disappointed.

Her over world sprite doesn't match her trainer sprite. That's just weird.

The absolute definition of a completely forgettable NPC, and the Hoenn games had some of the most forgettable ones in the series. It's like GameFreak just slapped her together as a placeholder but kept her when they literally couldn't think of anything better for an Elite.

I think you're right. I also right now came up with a theory that Glacia may have been a probable prototype for the Lady trainer class; But they went with the green dress instead, and rather just deleting the sprites, they made her an Elite. Sloppy, sloppy work.

... Where did she come from? Not much to say about Glacia. I kinda wish we'd get R/S remakes that expand a bit on the E4's backstories and whatnot. Sort of like what we had with Lorelei in FR/LG

She, like, the other Hoenn Elite Four members, were absolutely forgettable. And this is coming from someone who enjoyed RSE for years.

I disagree. There other E4 members were a punk rocker, Hawaiian shaman, and pirate captain. They at least had those going for them.

This. It's unfortunate that Glacia didn't really have any traits beyond being "the Ice one"
