I guess my fav gym leader would be the flying one. She's purrdyy. :3
I haven't played B/W yet so I can't say much about them...
I think the gym leaders should have more pokemon. ._.

Ahaha, I haven't looked at the OP because I want a surprise at the types of Gym Leaders (that is, if they are listed) for Unova, however I've managed to find out 6 or 7 unfortunately.

Furou for the win! She is like the reincarnation of Winona. Flying types for the win!

I know what you mean :) I wonder if she might be related to her like Lance and Clair were...
My favorite gym leader so far has been Isis because she's the only one I really know the most about.

Who is your favorite gym leader? Why?: Kamitsure because she's sexy. I also like Dent and Iris because they're traveling with Ash in the anime.
Which is your least favorite?: Hachiku. How does he not get cold when he's not wearing a sweater or a jacket? I also don't like Arti.
What do you think over all over all about the Unova gym leaders?: They could use some more Pokemon on their team, but otherwise, they're cool.

I agree they do need more Pokemon I was disappointed when I saw that Iris only had three Pokemon despite being the Eighth gym leader >_> Two of which were of the same evolution line...

Who is your favorite gym leader?
Oh man. Aloe. <3 Kamitsure's, Dent's and Yacon's designs are great, too.

Which is your least favorite?
Uhhh, Arti.

What do you think over all about the Unova gym leaders?
I hadn't seen them until now, but I'm pleasantly surprised at their designs. I wish Aloe had, like, grass/poison pokemon or something, rather than normal. (regardless of what her role is in the games/anime. I'm sure it will make sense for her to have normal type, I just think that grass would go with her design.)
& I don't like the Elite Four at all.

Who is your favorite gym leader? Why?
I am in love with Kamitsure. She has a Zeburakai, which is ultimate badarseary and she just looks easy going. But, I am also quite torn between Furou and her.

Which is your least favorite?
I am really not found of the stereotypical Aunt Jemima gym leader. Seriously? Do we SERIOUSLY need her :/

What do you think over all about the Unova gym leaders?
I think they are pretty chill from what I've seen. The only complaint I've had is that the gyms aren't as pretty as D/P and HG/SS.

Who is your favorite gym leader? Why?: I like Kamitsure because her design is really awesome. And she's an Electric Trainer, and the Electric Pokemon this Gen are so cool.

Which is your least favorite?: Arti, definitely. I just hate the design.

What do you think over all over all about the Unova gym leaders?: They're really cool, but I wish their Pokemon were more diverse for some reason. Other than that, I love most of them.

Who is your favorite gym leader? Why?
My favorite would have to be either Iris; Idk why she's just awesome, and she has Dragons so yeah, or Aloe; cause she's beast :DD
What strategies did you used to beat them?
I use the only normal strategy, pinpoint the weakness and make use of it. (Used should be use.)
What gym leader did you find the hardest?
Dento/Poddo/Koon, they were just to hard, and I refused to use the fugly monkeys.
Which is your least favorite?
Yakon and the Ice person, they've received no attention; not like the other leaders.
Who was the easiest?
Ice person; He was just to easy.
What do you think over all about the Unova gym leaders?
Tbh... I think these leaders are the best, O' wait; except for Hoenn; But I really like these Leaders :]

My favorite Gym Leaders:
Kamitsure & Furou because I find them both...(Tries to think of an appropriate word)...attractive

Least favorite Gym Leader:
Only Arti because the guy has a butterfly belt. Not epic at all...

Hardest Gym Leader:
Iris was the hardest for me because we all know from Lance, Clair, and Drake how hard it can be to take down a dragon

Easiest Gym Leader:
Hachiku, I swept him with Hihidaruma and that was the only sweep of any of the gym leaders I've faced in gen.V

Overall Opinion:
I think this set of gym leaders are 2nd best to HG/SS's Kanto gym leaders

ah the fighting pokemon with the steel thing, i had the grass starter and dorian with a few other fillers. they kinda hit me a little hard with the volt change X.x you'll go through the terror X.x i've only beat like 4 gyms.. I cant find the 5th one xD

i don't know, i guess from where it was normal effective on most of my pokes it killed them pretty quick. their rabid beasts.. X.x

ah then again, the gyms on the game are on a new level. all four so far have been somewhat tough..

You should be able to trash Emonga since there horribly weak D:

Glaceon; read this if your stuck :]

For the 5th Gym, go to the Dance hall thing, talk to Bel, once all the events are done; make sure you go to the ferris wheel to battle N, once everything's done go west and do the events there, cross the bridge to enter the 5th Gym City, go south to the Freezer containers, search around beat Team Plasma and Viola! Everything kinda unfolds from there :]

Also I think Shaga is pretty cool, only because he's related to Iris though u.u I hope in the 3rd version they become a double battle.

I think His and Iris' team should of been different; keep the first fugly Dragon but swap the last 2.

My favorite is obviously Kamitsure. Her design is totally rad, and she's an electric type trainer. I do however wish she had more diversity on her team, rather than having two Emonga's. I can't remember what my strategy was against her lol, I most likely just went head on against her. She wasn't really tough. My least favorite would probably be a tie between the Cowboy guy and the "snow ninja" dude haha. Not huge on their designs for some reason.

I found the hardest leader to be Aloe. That dog of her's was packing some serious power, and then the rat thing was pretty quick and a pain in the ass. The easiest trainer though... hmm, probably Arty. That was most likely because I picked the fire starter haha.

As a whole, I think the Unova gym leaders are all pretty cool though. I wish we had seen a Psychic or Dark type trainer though, but the Elite 4 having those types definitely made up for it.

well i haven't really played the game, but i know the normal gym leaders are hard as a general rule of thumb... so Aloe will probably be the hardest to face(i mean look at Ash! he got destroyed by her O_o)

I liked the Groundtypeguy,because I love groundtypes and he was a Cowboy which was somhow funny to me
The Hardest was the Electro because in my team was 2 flying and a water Poki...

Who is your favorite gym leader? Why?: I like Furou and Kamitsure, as they are both, kinda cute.

Which is your least favorite?: Yakon, Shaga and the Ice guy. They look like creeps, all 3 of them. Also, Shaga's name is quite rude...

What do you think over all over all about the Unova gym leaders?: Most of them are pretty well designed, and I'd really like to get Pokemon White just to see how tough they really are.

Designs: I think all the Unova gym leaders designs are pretty good tbh, oh, except Arti.
Favourite: My favourite would have to be either Shagga 'cos he just looks badass, or Kamitsure, due to the fact she still has time to listen to her ipod whilst gym battling.

January 30th, 2011, 01:40 PM
Who is your favorite gym leader? Why? Dent, Pod, Corn, and Arti. Kamitsure is pretty high on the list as well.
Which is your least favorite?
Yacon, Hachiku

Who is your favorite gym leader? Why? Furou and Dento are my favorites. ;3 I love flying types, and I adore Furou's seemingly energetic personality and looks. She's very adorable and I love her team. <33 The anime is the reason I love Dento, so there's not much to say there. n///n

What gym leader did you find the hardest? Aloe, by far. None of my Pokemon were listening at this point and her Pokemon were impossible. I had to catch a Nageki and train it separately and beat her. ;__;

Which is your least favorite? Hm... honestly, I don't have a least favorite. XD I love all the gym leaders! :3

What gym leader did you find the easiest? Uhhh, no one specifically. They all were pretty hard to beat for me. ._.; Then again, I had an unevolved team up until about.. Furou. XDD;

What do you think of the Unova gym leaders? Ohhh they are great stuff so far. I think I'll let the anime decide this for certain though.. so it'll be a good while before I really make my mind up. XD

Who is your favorite gym leader? Why?
Kamitsure because I love her design and the concept behind it.

What strategies did you used to beat them?
Haven't played yet.

What gym leader did you find the hardest?
Same as above.

Which is your least favorite?
The Ice Leader (7th Gym). Seriously, they totally ruined the whole modern theme the others had. I regret spoilering myself by seeing him, waiting to see him in game might have made me dislike him less.

Who was the easiest?
Not played yet.

What do you think over all about the Unova gym leaders?
I like them. I like their concepts. I like their designs. They're really cool. My only problem, but it is something I like as well, is that they're too normal, design-wise, and Western except the Ice Guy who I ironically dislike. Gym Leaders of the previous Gens had a mix of type cultural and normal Gym Leaders. Unova only has one, who I dislike because he ruins the flow xD Really, I love them all, great designs :)

OMG I can't wait to see Kamitsure in the 3rd game with a Luxray in the post-League rematchs. She'll look so cool with one as Luxray ears look like headphones ^_^

Also, Kamitsure + Volkner anyone? The hottest Gym Leaders, both blond, both Electric type specialists x)

Finally, I think Fuuro will me called Lea or Leah, after Amelia Earhart. The name Lea is fun and young, just like Fuuro :)

Great thread MRAS :)

My favorite Gym Leaders:
I liked how Aloe and Yacon were integrated in the story and how they appeared outside of their gyms. I don't want to go too much into that and spoil anything, but I just liked it that they weren't characters who only existed at one point in the game never to reappear. Design-wise they're all pretty good although Fuuro's hair thing is a little weird.

Least favorite Gym Leader:
I don't really dislike any of them. Maybe the first gym's fire and water leaders just because I didn't end up battling them and they kind of take a back seat to Dent / Cilan since he's the one that got more publicity.

Hardest Gym Leader:
Aloe, or maybe Yacon. I don't really remember any of them being too hard. D:

Easiest Gym Leader:
I swept Kamitsure, Fuuro, Hachiku and Iris so I couldn't really say which one was easiest.

Overall Opinion:
I liked the gym leaders for this game, but I liked the gyms themselves more. A roller coaster, a library with a secret passage, cannons. I mean, those were the most enjoyable part about getting to a new gym.

Who is your favorite gym leader? Why?

Kamitsure and Furuo; their design is absolutely lovely! [and pretty cute too. :3] Uh, for Kamitsure; I like show she has a yellow themed dress-up; with yellow headphones and blond hair. She looks like the electric [hah pun] yet very calm type. And well, I do love the fact on who they have a female electic gym leader now; I was dying to face one. :3 For Furuo, her design is pretty cute as well! :3 [not to mention I love her hair style~] And sheeeee seems like the ecentric, playful type, so yeah! Can't wait to see her in-game. ^^

Which is your least favorite?

Honestly? I don't have a least favorite -- I do believe that they did a good job personalizing the gyms and gym leaders, so I like them all. <3


Who was the hardest?

That would have to be Aloe the first time I played it...her pokemon were strong, and took me about 2 tries to beat it. D= [Heh, I have problems with all the normal gym leaders I suppose. ^^;]


Who was the easiest?

Iris was pretty easy, actually...I was able to sweep her because my pokemon were great in proformance against her, but eh. The gym leaders were all pretty easy to battle against [YEAH, EXCEPT FOR DARN ALOE. D=].


What do you think over all about the Unova gym leaders?

Overall, they are all pretty cool!The gym designs are origional and differen't, and that goes with the gym leaders as well!They do seem a little tougher than all the past gen gym leaders though; buuut I do like a challenge. :3

Who is your favorite gym leader? Why?

My favorite leader would have to be the 5th leader. His design, cowboy business man, had a deeper meaning and it also made him look like he was a very serious battler and person in general. I also really like his gym design. You walk into a business and you go down into an elaborate mine. It really helped develop his personality and it was just awesome looking.

Which is your least favorite?

I did not like the fourth gym leader all that much. Her gym was unique but her team was a let down. Only 3 pokemon for the 4th leader and 2 of them were pushover duplicates.


Who was the hardest?

Honestly the second gym leader was the hardest. After you took down Haderia her speedy Miruhogu would be able to ohko your pokemon with vengeance and it was also able to use hypnosis.


Who was the easiest?

Shaga/Iris because only 3 pokemon for the last gym is just so easy when I have 6 pokemon.


What do you think over all about the Unova gym leaders?

I wish they had more pokemon, were at higher levels and were overall more difficult. The only Gyms I felt were hard were the first 2. All the ones after that were too easy.

For my fellow fans out there. If that was I real outfit, like clothing line, I want to see girls in it :D It's good... I want Touya clothes, if that justifies this post xD Also, I like Arti's outfit, why don't some like him, they didn't really explain the dislike.

Also, yay for Aloe being hard! Her or Whitney, who's harder? Also, I hope her name isn't Verra, there's a rumor.

Oh and there's Fuuro: http://cosplay.lightchan.com/anime/fuuro-cosplay-pokemon-black-and-white/

My top 3 would be:

Furou (Flying)
Kamitsure (Electric)
Hachiku (Ice)

I love also the idea of having the initial Leader depend on your chosen starter.
