'''Roxie''' (Japanese: '''ホミカ''' ''Homika'') is a {{wp|musician}} who is the [[Gym Leader]] of [[Virbank City]]'s Gym, known officially as the [[Virbank Gym]]. She [[Type expert|specializes]] in {{type|Poison}} {{OBP|Pokémon|species}}. She gives the {{Badge|Toxic}} to Trainers who defeat her.
Roxie appears in {{game|Black and White|s|Pokémon Black 2 and White 2|2}} as a Gym Leader. She is a musician who plays the {{wp|bass guitar}}. Her Gym is a music club. Trainers who defeat Roxie will receive the Toxic Badge, along with {{TM|09|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 {{tc|Team Plasma Grunt}}s. After the battle that follows, she gives the player the {{HM |01|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]].

==In the anime==
[[File:Roxie anime.png|thumb|250px|Roxie in the {{pkmn|anime}}]]
Roxie appeared in ''[[BW083|Rocking the Virbank Gym! Part 1]]'' and ''[[BW084|Rocking the Virbank Gym! Part 2]]''. Like the {{pkmn|games}}, she is a musician who plays the bass guitar. She leads a rock band named "Koffing and the Toxics", with {{tc|Roughneck}} {{un|Nicky}} and {{tc|Guitarist}} [[Billy Jo]] as the other members.
 
She is also a powerful Gym Leader, defeating everyone who dared to challenge her with only three Pokémon even when they challenged her with six. When Ash arrived at her Gym, she was thrilled to see his {{AP|Pikachu}}, as she too had a Pokémon originating from [[Kanto]], {{p|Koffing}}, and happily accepted his challenge.
Roxie proved herself to be a very capable Gym Leader, defeating five of Ash's six Pokémon despite being at a disadvantage in terms of her [[party]]. She would occasionally perform a riff on her bass during the battle, and the crowd would chant her name. Despite their status as opponents, she also preferred giving Ash a fairer chance, offering Pignite a Pecha Berry to heal its poisoning after it defeated Scolipede when she could have simply let the battle continue with Pignite weakening. When she was defeated she happily congratulated Ash as the crowd cheered for his victory, and she presented him with his eighth and final Unova Badge, the Toxic Badge.
 
She reappeared in a flashback in ''[[BW103|Curtain Up, Unova League!]]''. She also makesmade a cameo appearance in the ending credits of ''[[M16|Genesect and the Legend Awakened]]''.

==In the manga==
===In the [[Pokémon Adventures]] manga===
[[File:Roxie Marlon Adventures.png|thumb|200px270px|Roxie in Pokémon Adventures]]
Roxie debuts in the {{chap|Black 2 & White 2}}. She was first mentioned by students at the [[Aspertia City]] Trainers' School as a possible invite to perform at a cultural festival.
 
She debuts in person in ''[[PS533|New Sword Player]]'', where {{adv|Blake}} takes {{adv|Whitley}} to a concert she performed at. Blake later asks Roxie to be a judge at the [[Autumn ChoralChoir CompetitionTournament]], which she happily accepts. After the competitiontournament ended, Roxie has her father take the winning team and their class to [[Castelia City]].
 
Shortly after arriving at their destination, Roxie discovered an executive member associated with the Unova ChoralChoir CompetitionTournament. The executive revealed that a group of villains attacked him and stole his {{p|Karrablast}} in an attempt to "liberate" it. Angered, Roxie, Blake, Whitley, and [[Hugh]] traveled to the [[Castelia Sewers]] in order to confront the villains. After investigating the area, the group was attacked by the villains, who turn out to be [[Team Plasma]]. When Hugh sees the Team Plasma members, he flies into a rage and begins attacking them, only to fail when the Muk begin swarming after everyone, forcing the group to scatter.
 
The Grunts eventually back Roxie and Whitley into a corner, forcing Roxie to battle them. Roxie eventually gets overwhelmed by the number of opponents, but Whitley easily defeats the Muk by using knowledge she learned at school. With their Pokémon defeated, the Grunts retreat and throw the Pokémon they stole away. After retrieving the stolen Pokémon, Roxie and Whitley exit the Sewers and return to Whitley's class at Prime Pier. After Roxie goes on ahead to return the Karrablast to the executive, the group is approached by Hugh, who reveals to everyone about the encounter with Team Plasma at the Sewers. He also reveals that one of the girls in the class is a member of Team Plasma and presents a pendant containing a picture of [[N]] he found as proof. When Whitley comes out of hiding to stop Hugh, everyone finds her behavior strange and they begin to question if Whitley was the person Hugh was talking about. Nervous and panicking, Whitley has [[Foongy]] release its spores everywhere, causing everyone except for Hugh to fall asleep.
 
Roxie and the class later awaken at the [[Marine Tube]]. There, they meet [[Benga]], another student at the Trainers' School, who reveals that he found the unconscious people and took them to a safe location alongside [[Marlon]]. Benga and Marlon reveal that Team Plasma has begun freezing several other locations across Unova with their flying ship, the [[Plasma Frigate]]. They also reveal that they plan on gathering allies to confront Team Plasma and ask Roxie and {{adv|Cheren}} to join them.

Due to being a Poison-type expert, Roxie managed to hold her own in battle, but was eventually overwhelmed by the number of opponents.
