A special report from... the Investigation Squad!

Yo, Reborn City! What's up?! We're here with the Reborn Rundown giving you a look at the leaders of the Reborn League! I'm your host, DJ Arclight, now on air!

You'll hear this often when facing the Agate Circus Strongman, Samson! Now stepping up to bat as Reborn's Fighting Gym Leader, Samson, compared to the previous leader, is all about matter over mind! His Pokemon's power is augmented by the Big Top's High Striker effect, an infamous rigged carnival game that here triggers based on certain attacks!

Here's a hook: It turns out, Samson may not have joined the league of his own according. It seems he was strong-armed into it by another party. And who's that? None other than the Agate Circus's Ground Leader, Terra! What could have gone down? The world may never know.

But in order to take him out, beat him at his own game! Cripple his Pokemon to reduce their power-- even that from the High Striker-- or use the Big Top's Flying-type advantages for the super-effective kill! Either way, Pokemon like his ace, Conkeldurr, are sure not to go down easy as they tank hits and strike back double every time!

That's all for now, but remember, Trainers, Keep fighting with everything you've got! Hold your spirits high, and even you can defeat the Reborn League!

Quotes Edit

  • "No sweat. I've been in worse positions." -When sending out last Pokemon.
  • "Tch. This isn't the worst thing I've lost." -After defeat.

Gossip Gardevoir's interview intermission!

Hello! Gossip Gardevoir here in Interview Intermission, bringing YOU the inside scoop on Reborn's celebrity figures!

Today we’ve got a special report with Samson, the Agate Circus Strongman!

Mr. Samson, would you like to tell us a bit about yourself?

SAMSON: Hm…No, Im good. Thanks.

GARDEVOIR: Ohh, come on, just one teensy weensy fact, please…?

SAMSON: Nah.

GARDEVOIR: I said please! Honestly, how much longer are you going to hold up the show?

SAMSON: Nothing personal. I just save that sort of stuff for the ladies. No offense to you. Not really into the whole Pokebeastiality.

GARDEVOIR: ……………………………Incidentally, Samson is the reserve fighting leader for the reborn league! What means when the current leader retires, he takes her place! It also means that if I were to throw a PSYCHIC attack in his FACE it would be SUPER EFFECTIVE. And, dear Samson, that’s exactly what’s going to happen if you don’t tell us something about yourself right now~!

SAMSON: All right, one fact, and you go away?

GARDEVOIR: Yep!

SAMSON: Anything?

GARDEVOIR: Anything!

SAMSON: Fine. One fact about me. The fact is that I’m telling an arbitrary fact to a camera now. Later.

GARDEVOIR: ……………………………….Thats all for today’s interview intermission. Until next time.
