In the games
Maylene uses {{type2|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. 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 [[Route 217]] where she is apparently {{pkmn|training}} by walking to [[Snowpoint City]]. She doesn't use {{m|Fly}} even if she could so she could 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.
