is the third member of Kanto region's Elite Four and has specialized in Ghost-based Pokémon throughout her entire training years. She has also achieved the given pleasure of raising other Pokémon for battle, usually choosing those classified with possessing an eerie presence of features as their appearance. When her team is stricken down, the Pokémon Trainer receives her permission to proceed to the next room, therefore challenging the fourth member of Kanto; Drake.
The established elderly woman holds the legendary record of holding the title of being the oldest member within all of the regions' Top Four, thus achieving status of a model member of the Elite.
As an active Pokémon Trainer, even in her old appearance, she has surpassed fitness in both mental and physical state, reinforcing achievement in agility as her strategist goal within her methods of play. When given the chance for introduction, she honorably refers to her own age and states it proudly.
She has been a fond acquaintance of Professor Oak in their youth, as both generally possessed strong qualities for a Trainer, thus becoming competitive towards achieving the title of Pokémon Master. Furthermore, throughout her years of youth, Agatha
became a bitter rival of Professor Oak, with whom she often battled for supremacy, claiming to best him as a Pokémon Master.
Her most recent sprite differs significantly from the previous. While she retained early development of white hair in the previous sprite, she now holds a blond-gray colour depiction. The posture is significantly improved from the previous, know suggesting the her age of gray is a lot younger than the first depiction of her appearance.
Agatha specializes in Ghost-based Pokemon, but the common type shared between her specialized Pokémon (for the exception of Misdreavus) is their typing as Poison.
All of her specialized Pokémon in R / B / G have in common the typing of poison and, thus, are all vulnerable to Psychic moves and (with the exception of Golbat) Ground moves while in combat.
Samuel Oak and Agatha had a great connection and spent of their years of youth training to become a the greatest of Pokémon Masters.
She highly admired Oak as the handsome man that allowed his Pokemon to achieve a higher success in his personal Pokemon Training. But as time spent, she had given a great ordeal of hardship for his grown ideals in Pokemon research, harshly disagreeing and criticizing his role as a Pokemon Trainer wasting away through books and papers. Now she claims him to be forgotten within his true purpose.
In-Game Role R / B / G
Aside from the type casting, Agatha's team is compromised of a well built strategy. Unfortunately for her tough lineup of Pokemon, the in-game strategy ranks her reputation with a poorly built assault. Her moveset is at times unnervingly spent using Dream Eater upon already awaken Pokémon contenders, and can be seen switching them on other turns, basically at given random.
Usually set upfront to compete against her opponent, the two Gengars and Haunter are punished by Psychic-based Pokémon. Golbat hones his skill in the sky but does not fair any well against the smite of Electric-based Thunderbolt. Arbok, pray tell, is assured to be shriveled with ease on a Psychic basis. To reinforce a team against Agatha's in-game balance is reassured to be less of a threat than foretold. Take her team on with an even balanced team and she'll sure grant passage to the next Elite on the roster.
The close relations of Oak and Agatha were unveiled in the Yellow Saga introducing the two at a back-then age of young adulthood. They both collaborated in formal works of Pokémon, with little detail or explanation.
As they both competed within the first ever Pokémon League Championship staged, Oak and Agatha were in good terms. Once Oak had gained favorable status in the Conference League he went on to confront Agatha in battle and ultimately defeated her in the enacted finals. Agatha met in secular privacy with Oak as she knew his whereabouts on Pokémon Training had ultimately come to a complete null. Agatha directly confronted Oak on his singular reasons about leaving the collaborate "research group" that they had worked up upon.
He had given verified reason that he was to complete life in the significance of a gadgets creation; the Pokédex. Perplexed of the idea, Agatha fought frustratingly against the ideals of its entire completion, as she remarked that this work would wrap him within text that would stretch upon years to come without the slightest avail of success. Knowing replied, Oak spoke truthfully that if the gathered information was not to be complete by the end of his generation and time, his lineage of children and grandchildren would in any case take over this task. As his departure from the scene took, Agatha ensued a personal vendetta over him, those associated with him and the human race in that matter.
By then, she had grown disdain against the issues brought upon Pokémon, brought upon by mankind's ignorance of understanding from pollution developed from selfish focus on industrialization.
