Why wasn't the fairy gym leader a buff guy

Your implication of a derogatory term towards a subculture is not amusing.


I'm not sure if the connotation of "fairy" is even the same in Japan. o.o If there were a "homosexual" type, I'd imagine the gym leader would be really buff though. That is how homosexuals are stereotyped in japan after all.

They say she's low down, but it's just a rumor I don't believe 'em.

Sylwyn thought you were referencing homosexuals that work out at the gym. It's a gay subculture that is horribly stereotyped.

It has nothing to do with that subculture. It is going for the humor in subverting the perception propagated by the game of trainers using primarily fairy types being petite, cutesy, ("traditionally) feminine little girls.

That "dragon hunter" idea got me thinking about what a really cool approach would have been...imagine you walk into the gym leader's room and it's pitch black. Suddenly, two torches light up. The leader is a big guy, maybe imagine AZ except closer to normal size and in tattered, "tribal" sort of clothes. He has a staff with a Dragonite's skull on top, with a Pokeball in its mouth. Doesn't say anything, the fight just starts, and his whole team...

Is the most ****ing adorable set of Fairy-types imaginable.

And he's the most difficult gym leader in the game.
