Name: Viridian City Gym
Type: Recently renovated pokemon gym
Location: Viridian City
Description: Recently restored to its previous classical glory, the outside of the Viridian Gym is simple, yet elegant, with a water fountain nestled between curved white stairs and pillars on the raised balcony leading into the gym. Most times, the interior of the gym reflects this theme; smooth tiles and open windows leading to the battlefield in the back. Administration offices upstairs are more utilitarian, though still well-done.
When a challenger comes, however, the gym transforms. A thin layer of ice over the tiles makes the footing treacherous. Cooling machines freeze the air into a low-hanging mist, and the windows are shut. Floor-level lighting makes the mist glow, and various Gym Defenders lurk, ready to disorient and expel any unworthy challengers. Ice pokemon slip through the mist, their Snow Cloak abilities used to appear and disappear in seconds.
The Gym Leader’s battlefield is more of the same. Quilo greets players on a raised platform, the ever-present mist swirling around the battlefield. He usually appears with his sword at his hip and a pale blue coat, cutting the figure of casual nobility. He makes good use of the mist, his pokemon’s attacks thickening it to near-blinding levels. Many of his pokemon use Hail to cause further danger.
If defeated, the overhead lights come on and the mist is allowed to dissipate, leaving the battlefield looking otherwise unremarkable for its type.
Quilo does not live at the gym, though he does tutor his students and schoolchildren here. On occasion, he rents out the front room for community events, like weddings.
