Like Ash Ketchum, as in ''Catch 'em All''. Are there any others? What are they?
Besides Ash there's,
Brock = B rock (Rock
Misty = Mist y (Water)
Byron = B yron (Iron)
Roark = Ro ar k (Rck)
Candice = Cand ice (Ice
Volkner = Vol kner (Volt - Electric)
Gardenia = Garden ia (Grass)
Maylene = (I'm Guessing) May lene (Lean??? Anyway... Fighting)
Bugsy = Bug sy (Bug(s))
Their fun to seek out and helps you memerize their types and stuff...
(P.S. Even my name here has a pun... vvvvvv)
Hyper Flares = Hyper Flares (Dragons breath Fire) <<<< XD
Every Gym Leader has something about them that matches their type.
I'm gonna have to answer after Hyper Flares with..
Tracy Sketchit = Sketch it
Lt. Surge = surge as in a surge of electricity
Geo has to do with ground, Giovanni (pronounciation varies depending on region and culture) is a ground leader
Norman from gen 3 = Norman, Normal
Almost all gym leaders have names like this, as Hyper mentioned.
I suspect that May may have gotten the name because of what it means, pretty much chance. And she entered a lot Pokemon Pokemon Contests, which can take some luck.
