Gardenia is the SECOND Gym Leader to have received a Pokémon from a main character. Sabrina of Saffron City was the first, because Ash gave her his Haunter.

I completely forgot that. I am so sorry >.< ~Light

Is she a Nudist? She dos not were a shart under her thing. Cerberus 13:10, 12 December 2007 (UTC)

NO! It was a error that occurred in the episode. -うずまき ハルカ 16:52, 12 December 2007 (UTC)

Way dos it show a shirt later? Cerberus 16:54, 12 December 2007 (UTC)

'cause she wears a shirt under that mantle, but, in one of the scenes, they colored it with her skin color. -うずまき ハルカ 17:38, 12 December 2007 (UTC)

OH I thought it was like the the wole time. Sorry Cerberus 17:47, 12 December 2007 (UTC)

Besides, a nudist is someone who doesn't wear any clothes at all - That isn't the case for Gardenia. --FabuVinny T-C-S 20:12, 12 December 2007 (UTC)

Pokemon is a Kids show she can't be naked on a kids show. Cerberus 21:01, 12 December 2007 (UTC)

Nudity isn't exactly something you'd find in shows like Pokémon. Granted, that doesn't stop the hentai artists...
Anyway, stuff like Gardenia's missing shirt is easily fixed in the dub by the paint-edit departments. It's not like that controversial scene in EP018 with the inflatable cleavage that kept it off American airwaves until almost the start of season 3 (and even then it's the most heavily-edited dub episode due to the controversial sequences)...--Shiningpikablu252 22:42, 12 December 2007 (UTC)

That wos one bad thing. Cerberus

Her Pokémon

We need links to her other Pokémon, including Cherubi and Roserade (actually, I think that's it...)---ht14 17:22, 19 February 2008 (GMT)

Well we don't make pages for Pokémon that really aren't important (A.K.A. her's). So there are no pages on them, which means there are no links. --Theryguy512 23:59, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Speaking of her pokémon, I'm quite sure that Nuzleaf from her exit scene isn't hers. She called it a messenger Nuzleaf and her assistant Youko was shown to own one. There's a strong implication there that the Nuzleaf sent to fetch Gardenia from the Eterna forest is Youko's. And not Gardenia's. Luna Tiger 23:18, 24 February 2008 (UTC)

I agree. The Nuzleaf can't possibly be Gardenia's. --Shiningpikablu252 20:43, 5 March 2008 (UTC)


Are we certain the black part is her hair? I believe it is but I've heard one or two people say that is may not be it due to it not shining in the official art. Lovely Rose 01:59, 4 June 2010 (UTC)

Pokémon Heart Gold Soul Silver

I found a video about her being in heart gold doesn't look fake but I could be wrong --Just a simple edit (talk) 01:03, 23 September 2013 (UTC)

It's fake. --It's Funktastic~!話してください 01:11, 23 September 2013 (UTC)
Yeah I kind of realized after watching the entire video the quotes gave it away. How did they make it look so legit?--Just a simple edit (talk) 01:20, 23 September 2013 (UTC)


"Gardenia is said to be afraid of the possibility of the existence of a Grass/Ghost-type Pokémon. In Generation VI, two Pokémon with this type combination were introduced."

What about Phantump and Trevenant? --Poggerius (talk) 07:12, 13 February 2014 (UTC)

Done. Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 07:25, 13 February 2014 (UTC)

First Gym Leader to use a starter in battle

This is contained within the trivia section of the article:

"Gardenia is the first Gym Leader that uses a starter Pokémon in battle."

Wouldn't she be the second, since Lt. Surge has a Pikachu in Red, Blue, Green, FireRed, and LeafGreen? Luigi-San 03:44, 18 May 2014 (UTC)

Pikachu is not a starter Pokémon in any of those games, nor is it a member of any of the Grass/Fire/Water trios that "starter Pokémon" most commonly refers to. Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 05:19, 18 May 2014 (UTC)

Can we get a bigger image of her character art, please?

The resolution of hers is very small compared to, for example, Maylene.

I'd do it myself but I don't know where you guys find the official art. --Jsmith28 (talk) 14:53, 10 March 2017 (UTC)

I think this is the best we can get. --Celadonkey 14:59, 10 March 2017 (UTC)
How did we get a bigger version of Maylene? --Jsmith28 (talk) 15:23, 10 March 2017 (UTC)
Sometimes, it's like that. Just like how some Pokémon have smaller art, trainer art size varies because often they are published different ways. --Celadonkey 15:29, 10 March 2017 (UTC)
That stinks. Thanks for the info. One day, hopefully. --Jsmith28 (talk) 15:45, 10 March 2017 (UTC)
Probably when the remake arrives. --Celadonkey 16:06, 10 March 2017 (UTC)
