[Image Description: A man with tanned skin, short red hair, and dark violet eyes. He is wearing a red and blue jacket over a red turtleneck, khaki cargo pants with lines at the knees indicating the legs can be unzipped and converted into shorts, and brown hiking boots. He is holding a red and white Pokeball in one hand, the other hand holding onto his jacket. To his left is a Pokemon that takes the form of a grinning stone humanoid covered in green and pink agate, resembling the Flatwoods Monster cryptid. It is holding up one of its agate-clawed arms in a threatening manner. The background consists of a pair of blue and purple mountain peaks in front of a light blue sky, meant to resemble the rock-type background for Pokemon pages in Pokemon Go. End ID.]
"How was the hike up here? Third gym you've been to now, is it? I'm honored to be your next stop on the trail. I'm Peter, and I'll get right to it, I specialize in rock types. Their sturdy defenses and hard-hitting attacks make them pretty well adapted for life in and around the mountains. I'll show you just what that means!"
Here's Pokemon Plow's third Gym Leader! It wouldn't be an Appalachian-based Pokemon region without some references to mountains, of course, and who better to represent the mountains than a trail guide for hiking?
In Plow Version's Brownslade Gym, you'll face off against the rock-type specialist Peter. He works alongside his cousin to keep amateur explorers safe, and while she keeps people safe in the caves, Peter keeps people safe on the many hiking trails around his town as it's right next to the geological landmark Nature's Bridge. The importance of this local landmark makes its mark on his gym's interior as well, as it is basically a miniature recreation of the trails around Nature's Bridge that one must navigate to reach him.
If you're the type to rely heavily on your starter rather than build a balanced team, you're going to start having some major difficulties with Peter's fight. All three have some major thing that'll make things challenging, for one Kinedle (I'm going to assume your starters have evolved by now) will be week against all three and Heronek's flying type gives them an extra weakness to rocks. He has a Graveler at level 27, a Carkol at level 28 that'll give your Soystodon a run for their money (hope you decided to pick up a Mudwelp or a non-flying water type), and finally his Malevoleye at level 29 who he'll join in with for Union Battle. After becoming Champion, you can rematch Peter with a higher-leveled full team of six: Golem, Stonmeele, Sudowoodo, Coalossal, Bouldeon, and Malevoleye. ...wait, was that an "-eon"?? Yes, another new Eeveelution tease! Still can't show them off for WAY longer than I'd like, but I hope you'll like them when I can :D
