The Agile Badge is an official League badge availablle in Licentia. The gym it is available from is located in the city of Magnegravium. The Gym itself is built into the side of the city, looking out over the ground thousands of feet below, allowing Nova’s high-speed flying Pokémon to take advantage of their freedom of movement.
Gym Leader: Nova, Zephyr of Grace
Nova is a trainer who values speed and acrobatic prowess above all else, and as such, all of her Pokemon are specifically raised to be as fast as possible. The trainer herself is no Slowpoke either – she wakes up at 5 AM every day to go out running with her Pokemon, and she is an active gymnast who often travels to Johto in order to participate in the Pokeathlon. She can often be found participating in local competitions, too, and so it is likely that any sports-oriented trainers may already have seen her out and about. Nova is often seen wearing some kind of tracksuit if she’s running, or more casually, airy outfits that aren’t too tight and restricting.
Nova revels in utilizing moves that allow her to duck in and out of close quarters with ease, such as Quick Attack, and moves that allow her to avoid the opponent’s counterattacks, such as Fly and Double Team. Although she does not tend to use moves that are individually punishing, her hit and run strategies can often result in your Pokemon being worn down over time with her Pokemon unscathed. In addition, Nova makes full use of the gym’s apparatus, so even her non-aerial Pokemon can navigate the field with blinding speed.
Her gym is perfectly equipped for acrobatic Pokemon: ropes hang from the ceiling for them to swing from, and towers (like the Tactic Leader’s Tower field) are all over the field. The ground half of the field is exactly as described in the Tactic Leader’s Tower field gimmick, and the upper half has enough ropes to allow her Pokemon to traverse the field quickly. The specialized training that her Flying-types have received allow them to be able to traverse these obstacles without being impeded.
- Ninjask – Ninjask is Nova’s signature Pokemon! It is common knowledge that Ninjask is by far the swiftest Pokemon of all, able to move so quickly it becomes almost invisible – and so it is easy to see why Nova loves it so. It is highly likely that she will use Ninjask!
