Matt-in-the-Hat decided to tag me in this Pokemon Gym post thingy. Thanks for the tag, but this is going to take some creativity since I’m only a “first generation expert,” and the only reason why I got into Pokemon is because, in second grade, I had a crush on this boy who loved Pokemon. Well, that’s another story that I’ll tell later on in life. So anyways here’s my ideal Pokemon Gym.
I would specialize in Fairy-type Pokemon. I always thought fairies are cool (I mean if I had to build a Yu-Gi-Oh! deck, I would use a Fairy deck). And since it’s a recently new type of Pokemon, it would be fun to study them and be one of the rare few that has a Fairy-type gym. Many of the Fairy-type Pokemon are cute, and I like cute things. Also, there’s this sort of fantastical element with these Pokemon that makes them other-worldly, but at the same time, still part of the Pokemon world if you get what I mean.
I did some research and there’s like only one Fairy-type Gym Leader, Valerie, and she designed her gym like a dollhouse. She even wears a Japanese-like kimono with a gothic-lolita twist. I don’t know if I can top that…but I’ll try.
Continuing on with the concept of magic and fantasy, I’m going to go with an Alice in Wonderland design. There’s going to be a lot of pastel colors on the walls, and we would most likely battle in a ballroom with the card deck suit theme. As for my attire, I’ll go with a red & pink “Queen of Hearts’ dress—feminine but fantastical.
After the battle, the trainers and I would have a tea party where we shall enjoy scones and tea-size cucumber sandwiches.
I’d only accept challengers that are mature, humble, kind and amusing. I don’t think a majority of trainers would carry just only fairy-type Pokemon because there aren’t a lot of them, and so I think trainers that come to challenge me will have a variety of different types of Pokemon.
On a side note, I think I’ll get challengers that are misogynistic and may think Fairy-types are too weak and girly. Those are the opponents that I may accept (sometimes) and give them a well-deserved beatdown. 🙂

My Pokémon Team:
Badge and TMs
Trainers that defeat me will earn the Fairy Badge and a one-year membership in the Lyndere Club. With one year membership, you are invited to many of Lady Lyn’s tea parties and social events.
I think I did this correctly. I never played Pokemon on a Gameboy or a DS, so I don’t have much experience with the whole Pokemon world except for the anime. However, I do want to play Pokemon Go if I ever get a smartphone…
