Roxie made her debut in Rocking the Virbank Gym! (Part 1) and was the final Gym Leader Ash Ketchum faced after he heard the Opelucid Gym was closed. She's the lead vocalist and bass player of her band, "Koffing and the Toxics", and she exudes confidence. Unlike other Gym Leaders encountered, she pits her three Pokémon against her opponent's entire team, stating that if her opponent beats her team, she gives them the Toxic Badge.
