Pokémon OmegaRuby and AlphaSapphire: Gym Leaders

21 September 2014

The eight gym leaders from Hoenn make a return in the upcoming remakes (duuhh..)
They all have redesigns and updated Gyms, and perhaps even updated Gym rosters. I’ll be taking a look at the Gym Leaders, their Gym and their presumed teams during- and after the storyline. Let’s dive in!

The full rosters of the Gym Leaders have been leaked, but I'm not going to update this page, since I don't want to spoil it for everybody.

#1: Rustboro Gym Leader Roxanne

Ruby Sapphire Roxanne.png     ->

Roxanne had a minor redesign/ Her skirt changed and she looks more like a teacher now.
Her Gym is also updated. It keeps the same idea as a maze, but it now also contains fossils on the wall and in glass, as well as a 3D perspective.

#2 Dewford Gym Leader Brawly

Ruby Sapphire Brawly.png  -> Omega Ruby Alpha Sapphire Brawly.png


Brawly changed a little more than Roxanne did. He know looks more like a surfer, with goggles and wetsuit.
His gym now consists of 2 rooms; a hall with trainers, and Brawly’s room with real fitness machines.

#3 Mauville Gym Leader Wattson

Wattson is still that jolly old dude. He know wears a Hawaiian shirt with Lightning bolts.
His gym seems to be the exact same.

#4 Lavaridge Gym Leader Flannery



Flannery changed a little bit design wise. She looks more fierce, and she now wears different jeans than before, as well as a towel attached to her belt.
The gym keeps the same idea, but with an overall redesign. Instead of just straight holes, the gym now uses trapdoors. There are now rocks, there is water and of course, steam.

Heat Badge

#5 Petalburg Gym Leader Norman


Norman only switched his shoes for a pair of sandals. Bad fashion taste I guess.
The gym is exactly the same. Pick a door, defeat the trainer, move on.

#6 Fortree Gym Leader Winona

  ->  ??

We have no information about the last 3 gym leaders. I assume her design doesn’t change much. Probably just a new suit.
Her gym will definitely change, Her gym sucked and didn’t make any sense in RSE. I mean, come on. Ports? Whut?
The new design will probably be related to the treehouses in Fortree City. So, you have to climb up?

#7 Mossdeep Gym Leaders Tate & Liza

   ->  ??

We have no confirmation that the above picture is the Mossdeep Gym. However, judging from the looks of it, it definitely is. It looks al so Psychic. Reminds me of Olympia’s Gym. You can also see Psychics, so pretty much confirmed.
The Gym has had a complete overhaul as you can see. I don’t know what the puzzle is, but appereantly you bounce around platforms.

#8 Sootopolis Gym Leader Wallace

This picture is the only thing we have about both Sootopolis and the Gym.
Wallace will probably looks more fabulous, to correspond with the Contests.

Rain Badge

I’m 100% sure that the Gym Leaders can be battled again. If Emerald can do it, than ORAS can surely. Plus, it is a selling point.
The question is; how can we rebattle them?

  • PokéNav (Match Call)
  • Locations in-game based on time. (I.e. Brawly appearing on Sunday morning in Granite Cave)
  • Facility we can battle them (similiar to Platinum)

#1 Roxanne

It would make sense for Roxanne to appear in a cave, because she is a Rock type specialist. But it could also that she is battleable in her school, as she is a teacher.
