The Spooky Badge is an official League badge available in Licentia. The Gym is a haunted house tourist attraction in Audola, where Pokémon and people work together to make a fun, spooky atmosphere. However, trainers take a subtly different path, in which the Pokémon are actively inflicting negative status ailments and the costumed actors are actually the Gym leader’s underlings.
Gym Leader: Callum, the Lord of Bones
Callum- Cal for short- is a playful, light-hearted trickster who’s always loved Licentia’s Spooky Day celebrations ever since he was a young child. When he made close friends with a Gastly as a child, his fate was sealed. He became a popular trainer on the Gym circuit, and eventually became a Gym Leader himself. Cal works in his own funhouse as a skeleton, and takes great joy in surprising trainers by looking like just another employee.
Cal is a joyous trickster. Where others may enjoy inflicting poisons, burns, and other nasty statuses, Cal thrives on it. Behind his playful exterior, he’s a careful combatant who well knows the best way to take advantage of both his Pokémon’s strengths and others’ weaknesses.
Cal’s field, located in a faux corn maze, is, predictably, coated in surprising traps, many of which inflict status conditions or negative combat statuses. However, they’re easily spotted if your Pokémon keep an eye out, and flying or levitating Pokémon can bypass some entirely.
- Gastly/Haunter/Gengar – Cal’s constant companions since he was very young, these three tricksters perfectly suit Cal’s battling style, so expect to see them there! Or, worse, expect to not see them there until it’s too late!
- Rotom (All Formes)
