Marnie is character who appears in the Pokémon games, Pokémon Sword and Shield as one of the rivals, and later succeeds her older brother's Gym Leader title. She is also the idol of Team Yell.

Appearance

Marnie is a slim young girl with icy blue eyes and black hair tied in twintails, the latter with red ribbons. She wears a black choker, a pink minidress under a black Gothic jacket and matching black and pink boots. She also wears a red ear piercing and carries a red backpack.

Later, as a Gym Leader, she wears a new uniform consisting of a pink and black tank top with the Team Yell symbol on it, matching black and pink leggings with the number 960 and black and brown shoes. She also wears a glove with the same color as her shoes and has a gym tattoo on her arm.

Personality

Marnie is normally a calculated and composed strategist, who mostly hides her competitiveness. She is sometimes annoyed by her wild fans, but as long as they don't borderline and intervene others, she actually appreciates their support.

Although generally emotionless on the surface, Marnie can stay angry for a long period if her limits have been tested. She also has a difficult time expressing happiness, as shown when the player character once finds her attempting to train herself to smile by literally dragging the corners of her mouth upwards with her fingers.

Since Morpeko is her partner and best friend, Marnie always finds herself being manipulated by its mood swings.

Biography

Games

Marnie first appears in the Motostoke hotel, dispelling a few disruptive Team Yell members. After apologizing to the trainer, she attends the opening ceremony of the Gym Challenge. She later meets up with the trainer at the same hotel prior to the third gym challenge. She fights the trainer, and upon her defeat, Marnie notes she has a long way to go.

Marnie then continues her gym challenge and runs into the trainer again outside of Spikemuth, which is being blocked off by Team Yell. At this point, she is on friendly terms with the trainer and shows him a secret entrance after the trainer defeats her again. She helps the trainer advance in the Gym challenge and berates some Team Yell grunts for obstructing with the gym challenge. After the trainer beats her brother and seventh gym leader, Piers, it becomes Marnie's turn to fight him. Although a caring sister, Marnie scolds Piers for suggesting that she should settle to be the new seventh gym leader over him, and states that she has her ambitions set on the championship.

After losing to the player character in the semi-finals, Marnie takes over Piers as the newest Gym Leader of Spikemuth.
