>only male Psychic-type gym leader
>looks like a girl anyway
Why is so? Is Psychic the girliest type? Almost all gym leaders are women and if you look at Elite Four members using psychic type (Will and Lucian) they looks like homosexuals. And I was sure Will was a woman until I looked in Bulbapedia.
they read my mind and automatically know how i want them to be like
Liza and Tate are twins, so of course they look similar
You can tell that Tate is a dude because he has no eyelashes
Viola is the only female Bug specialist.
Karen is the only female Dark specialist
Elesa is the only female Electric specialist.
Falkner is the only male Flying specialist.
Bertha is the only female Ground specialist.
Koga is the only male Poison specialist.
Roxanne is the only female Rock specialist.
Jasmine is the only female Steel specialist.
Misty is the only female Water specialist.
Do note that I'm only counting mainlines.
>Why is so?
Because he's a Twin.
Because he's like 12 and hasn't hit puberty yet so he hasn't developed secondary sexual characteristics? Enough so to distinguish him from other anime characters?
>looks like a girl
I think he just looks generic. And generic, in anime/manga is pretty effeminate.
If you look at all gym leaders, it really seems quite spread out. If anything, a female bug and ground leader is overdue, and perhaps a male grass leader.
This guy gets it. The accumulation of ill-willed thoughts strong enough to crystalise in form of psychic waves is possible only with females, hence their domination on type mastery field.
Sure we have Will and Lucien, but they only train psychic Pokemon, without having any kinds of esper power themselves.
50% of Bug specialist are female
50% of Dark specialist are female.
Elesa is the only female Electric specialist(1/5).
Falkner is the only male Flying specialist(1/3).
Bertha is the only female Ground specialist(1/3).
Koga is the only male Poison specialist but he held a position of both - gym leader and elite four member(1/3).
Roxanne is the only female Rock specialist(1/4).
Jasmine is the only female Steel specialist(1/4).
Misty is the only female Water specialist(1/7!).
He's not even similar to Blaine. But he is one of the most completely unexplored and underdeveloped gym leaders in all of the main series games. Which sucks, because his design is great.
