I'm Falkner, the Violet City Pokémon Gym Leader! People say you can clip Flying-type Pokémon's wings with a jolt of electricity... I won't allow such insults to bird Pokémon! I'll show you the real power of the magnificent bird Pokémon!
~ Falkner

Falkner (Japanese: ハヤト Hayato) is the Gym Leader of the Violet City Gym in Johto. He specializes in using Flying-type Pokémon and, when beaten, will reward the player with the Zephyr Badge. He is the very first gym leader of the Johto region.

Appearance

Falkner has blue hair, a sky blue shirt with white buttons on it, a blue undershirt, a white belt, indigo shorts, black socks and shoes, and black wristbands with red outlines.

Personality

Known as "The Elegant Master of Flying Pokémon", Falkner is adored as a cool and handsome Trainer. He looks up to and reveres his father, who was Gym Leader before him, appears to want to become his equal. Falkner aspires to follow in his dad's footsteps and be the greatest bird master.

Trivia

  • Falkner's name possibly comes from the bird Falcon because of his fondness for bird-like Pokémon, which is makes him a Flying type trainer.
    • Additionally, his Japanese name means "falcon person."
  • In the games, Falkner seems to be popular with female Trainers (who find him to be quite handsome). According to a Picnicker named Liz (who provides gossip to the player over the PokéGear), Falkner's father is apparently supposed to be more handsome and cooler than his son is.
  • Falkner doesn't own any Johto Pokémon, even though he is a Gym Leader in that region. However, he does use a Noctowl when you battle him the second time in HG/SS.
  • Falkner is the first Flying-type Gym Leader.
