Viola named as Santalune City’s Gym Leader


Santalune City, a pleasant city known for its large fountain and park benches, will be the first stop on your Pokémon X and Y adventure.

Here, you’ll take on your first Gym Leader, Viola (left), with the players first learning of her identity by stumbling into her older sister, Alexa (right), a journalist working for the nearby publishing house in Lumiose City.

Viola, a professional photographer that specialises in Pokémon photography, looks after the Santalune City Gym, whose interior is constructed from threads like spiderwebs, strung together tightly above the darkness.

Pokémon X and Y will launch worldwide for Nintendo 3DS on October 12th.
