'''Maylene''' (Japanese: '''スモモ''' ''Sumomo'') is the [[Gym Leader]] of [[Veilstone City]]'s [[Gym]], known officially as the [[Veilstone Gym]]. She hands out the {{Badge|Cobble}} to {{pkmn|Trainer}}s who defeat her. She specializes in {{type2type|Fighting}} {{OBP|Pokémon|species}}.
==In the games==
Maylene uses {{type2type|Fighting}} Pokémon in her battles. Trainers who defeat her receive the {{Badge|Cobble}}, {{TM|60|Drain Punch}} and are able to use {{m|Fly}} outside of battle. In addition, all Pokémon up to level 40 will obey them. Maylene is considered a cute little girl, but adults in the town respect her for her power. Maylene's father gambles at the [[Veilstone Game Corner]]. Maylene apparently doesn't know her own strength, as she's totally unsure of how she got to be Gym Leader, and seems rather confused by the whole thing.
Later in {{v2|Platinum}}, the player encounters her upon entering {{rt|217|Sinnoh}} where she is apparently {{pkmn|training}} by walking to [[Snowpoint City]]. She doesn't use {{m|Fly}}—even if she can—so she can train herself. She is also used to the cold, even if she is lightly dressed and barefoot. In Snowpoint's [[Pokémon Center]], she says that she admires [[Candice]] for being so studious and that she'll see her later. Later in the game, she can appear at the [[Battleground]], where she and the other Sinnoh Gym Leaders and Trainers can be battled again. After battling her here, she mentions that she believes that being barefoot is healthier than wearing footwear, pointing out that Pokémon go barefoot.

:''"Brrr... Oh, hi, <player>! Are you taking the Gym challenge now? I'm hoping to see [[Candice]] soon, but I'm staying put until I warm up again first. Oh, you should know that Candice is a user of {{type2type|Ice}} Pokémon. I really admire Candice. She's so studious. She wanted to practice against me to learn about the {{t|Fighting}} type. It's because the Ice type matches up badly against the Fighting type."''
