Roxie (Japanese: ホミカ Homika) is the Gym Leader of Virbank City's Gym, known officially as the Virbank Gym. She specializes in Poison-type Pokémon. She gives the Toxic Badge to Trainers who defeat her.
She is voiced by Eri Kitamura, Alyson Leigh Rosenfeld and Brianna Knickerbocker in the English version, and by Chisa Suganuma in the Japanese version.
In the games
Roxie appears in Pokémon Black 2 and White 2 as a Gym Leader. She is a musician who plays the bass guitar. Her Gym is a music club. Trainers who defeat Roxie will receive the Toxic Badge, along with TM09 (Venoshock).
Before the Gym battle, Roxie is seen in Virbank City outside of the Pokémon Center, arguing with her father about him becoming a movie star. He defends his wishes by commenting that Roxie balances her duties as the Virbank Gym Leader, and as a member of her rock band. He leaves, and Roxie gets angry and heads for the Gym, which the player can directly challenge.
After the Gym battle, Roxie can be seen near the port with Hugh and several of the Team Plasma Grunts. After the battle that follows, she gives the player the HM Cut and then heads back to the Gym.
Roxie later makes a brief appearance after the player competes in the PWT for the first time, expressing an interest in competing in it (causing Clay to remark that word of the competition is spreading). Roxie does indeed compete in it later, along with most other Gym Leaders. In the summer, she visits Cynthia in Caitlin's villa in Undella Town.
