How Iris joined the Tourney

Iris is the eighth and last Gym Leader of the Unova region in the Pokémon White Version only. Iris lives in Opelucid City, and specializes in using Dragon-type Pokémon. She will award the player the Legend Badge if he/she defeats her. In the two year gap between Pokémon Black and White and Black and White 2, she has become the Unova League Champion.

After becoming the Unova League Champion, Iris decided to hunt for dragons. The oldest Pars Marzban, Bahman warned that instead of using Pokemon all the time, she must learn to fight with her fists if she is to kill a Red Dragon.
