Bebe Zahara Benet
Badge: Cameroon Badge
Pokemon: Ninetales, Arcanine, Camerupt, Darmanitan, Pyroar, Rapidash
As the queen of Cameroon, Bebe deserves a team of regal fire types to rule the region alongside her. Fire types are swift, adept, majestic, and amazingly destructive. Considering Bebe’s iconic African look, it only makes sense she’d have a Serengeti realness team full of lion-inspired fire types and hard-hitters.
Badge: Whyutalkin Badge
Pokemon: Umbreon, Sharpedo, Liepard, Zoroark, Drapion, Sableye
Out of all the RPRDR queens, Tyra is arguably the most controversial and least liked, which makes her the perfect queen for a dark type gym. A beautiful, unapologetic queen like Tyra would reign supreme with a team of dark types, all of which have amazing defense, speed, and special attacks. Cunning and misunderstood, dark types need a trainer who understands what it’s like to be on the outside to lead them to victory.
Badge: Zubi Zubi Badge
Pokemon: Alakazam, Gardevoir, Gothitelle, Beheeymen, Meowstic, Xatu
Our diamond crowned queen perfectly embodies everything a Psychic Pokemon should be: intelligent, resourceful, and uniquely powerful. Raja is a captivating beauty, able to think ahead of the curve, and offer unparalleled imagination and creativity. Psychic Pokemon are the perfect pairing for such genius.
Badge: Ouija Badge
Pokemon: Gengar, Jellicent, Cofagrigus, Chandelure, Drifblim, Banette
It’s a given that resident scream queen Sharon Needles would be a ghost type gym leader. She’s spooky, kooky, and unpredictable like any good ghost type. She may be scary at times, but she’s really nice, and a good old time. A team of ghosts would be the perfect residents for her house of haunt!
Badge: MILF Badge
Pokemon: Golduck, Slowking, Simipour, Swanna, Mantine, Quagsire
It’s all “water off a duck’s back” with Jinkx Monsoon! Water types are easy to use, versatile, and incredibly reliable just like the queen from the rainy state of Seattle. Water Pokemon may not always be the most exciting, but they’re a type you always want on your team.
Bianca Del Rio
Badge: Bozo Badge
Pokemon: Hitmonlee, Mienshao, Conkeldurr,Pangoro, Hawlucha, Toxicroak
Bianca’s trademark quick wit and deadly comedic delivery make her the perfect companion for fighting type Pokemon. Fighting type Pokemon never let you see them sweat, and they KO you before you can even think of landing a punch-just like our devious comedy clown did to her fellow competitors in season 6.
Badge: Betty Badge
Pokemon: Mawile, Klefki, Florges, Sylveon, Togekiss, Clefable
Violet is the future of drag, so it makes sense to pair her with the newest Pokemon type! Violet is beautiful, dazzling, and unlike any of the other winners. Fairy types are super rare, super effective, and can slay even the strongest of competitors- just like Miss Chachki.
Bob the Drag Queen
Badge: KackKackKackBoom Badge
Pokemon: Nidoking, Donphan, Hippowdon, Diggersby, Dugtrio, Marowak
Bob dominated season 8 from the moment she walked into the workroom. She may have not served the most gag-worth looks, but she dominated every performance challenge with ease. Because of this it only makes sense to pair her up with ground types, which are one of the strongest Pokemon types offensively. Bob is loud, proud, and unstoppable and because of that she deserves a team of solid Pokemon that pack personality and punch.
Badge: Mother Dust Badge
Pokemon: Dragonite, Altaria, Goodra, Noivern, Haxorus, Flygon
Chad Michaels ’bout to die- might as well team her up with the oldest creatures in the book. Chad is a professional just like dragon types- she’s an All Star, goddammit! She’s polished, regal, and commands the type of power needed to train a team of fierce dragons.
