I would probably have a Psychic Gym. It would be in a regular building in a city, for that's where most gyms are.

My Pokemon would be Kirlia, Kadraba, Espeon, Xatu, and Chimecho. They wouldn't be too highly level, considering there are five of them.

For defeating me, trainers would receive the Mind Badge(Has that been done before? XD) and a Psychic TM

My gym would also double as a research facility. xD

Here's a picture of my gym:


June 23rd, 2006, 5:05 AM
I would have a Gym perched atop a mountain. It'd be like a house, but there'd be a cavern in back where'd I'd actually stage the battle. Due to the fact that it'd be hard to reach the place, I probably won't need Gym trainers.

With a Rock and Ice theme....

Piloswine (66): Earthquake, Rock Slide, Blizzard, Endure
Sneasel (68): Faint Attack, Ice Beam, Slash, Swords Dance
Glalie (67): Crunch, Hail, Blizzard, Sheer Cold

I would love to have a gym that's high up in the mountain forests.. the type that I'd choose would be grass ^^ Probably going with a Sceptile, Breloom and a Jumpluff..

- Sceptile because it is fast and pretty strong in its special attack
- Breloom because it has a fighting element and is highest in its attack
- Jumpluff because it is fast, and pretty cute too..

Actually, I love all the pokemon that I chose.. didn't choose them recklessly out of the many many grass pokemon XD

No badge name thought of yet, and the TM I'd reward would probably be a solarbeam or a giga drain.

Yep, that's about it I guess ^^

Aw, you beat me to it. I prefer flying/bird pokemon too. n_n I like the idea of your gym, it sounds quite brilliant.

Hey, it would be nice if you could all edit your posts and add a picture like some of the others. I love your ideas but they're projected so much more easily in my mind when somebody gives a picture.

All your gymleaders sound pretty tough. xD Newbie Trainers wouldn't stand a chance, unless they have one very strong pokemon that has a type advantage. ^^;;

I'm subscribing to this thread- it sounds really cool and I like reading all your ideas. Thank you to SamBee for creating this thread.

June 24th, 2006, 3:22 AM

Paras 33
Parasect 35

June 24th, 2006, 5:24 AM
Meaningly, My gym would be deep underwater in a cave that you have to use Dive to get through to. We would battle in that cave and if you have a water pokemon supposedly we could battle underwater. It would be a six on six battle, there would also be seven trainers you would need to battle before me. Oh, I forgot, I would have a Water/Dark/Steel gym. And my pokemon would be around level 39-46. My gym would also function as an aquarium for all my water pokemon, and a fitness center for every pokemon, where everyone's pokemon can get stronger.


Swimmer Vea (Female)
Level 36 Seel
Level 35 Carvahna

Athlete Dmitri (Male)
Level 34 Pelipper
Level 35 Sealio
Level 32 Wailmer

Psychic Aurora (Female)
Level 35 Mightyena
Level 36 Sharpedo
Level 38 Mawile
Level 34 Carvahna

Tuber Missi (Female)
Level 38 Azumarril
Level 36 Quagsire
Level 37 Lanturn

Hex Maniac Kiwi
Level 39 Shiftry
Level 40 Skarmory
Level 36 Murkrow

Level 38 Mantine
Level 36 Golduck
Level 40 Sharpedo
Level 39 Blastoise

Lass Natalie
Level 41 Skarmory
Level 39 Seadra
Level 42 Dewgong

And then after the Lass there would be a path to me, the gymleader of Shawrun City, get ready for a tough fight!

Leader Sarhra
Level 39 Absol
Level 41 Milotic
Level 44 Walrien
Level 42 Skarmory
Level 43 Umbreon
Level 46 Steelix

The Reward for beating me would be the TM Iron Tail, 39,672 Pokedollars, and the Cubic badge which makes all pokemon obey and raises your pokemons special attack, and also the ability to use Waterfall outside of battle.

Blaze Dragon
June 24th, 2006, 6:37 AM
Well, I would have a fire gym, in a volcano shape. All the battles would be double, so it wasn´t going to be easy. There would be 6 trainers, not only using Fire Pokemon, but Pokemon that could learn Fire moves. Also my gym would be a resistance chamber, where your Pokemon can improve their focus by meditating on the geysers

Cooltrainers Marcos & Rocio
All Pokemon LV30
Granbull (can learn Fire Punch, Sunny Day, Flamethrower, Fire Blast and Overheat)
Clefairy (can learn the same attacks, except Overheat)
Jigglypuff (can learn the same attacks)
Nidorina (can learn Sunny Day)

Fighters Gonzalo & Julian
All Pokemon LV35
Steelix (can learn Sunny Day and Flamethrower)
Rhydon (can learn Fire Punch, Sunny Day, Flamethrower and Fire Blast)
Shiftry (can learn Sunny Day and Nature Power transforms into Overheat in the Gym)
Snorlax (can learn Fire Punch, Sunny Day, Flamethrower and Fire Blast)
Solrock (can learn Fire Spin, Fire Punch, Sunny Day, Flamethrower, Fire Blast and Overheat)

Rich Boy Lucas and Clown Maxi
All Pokemon LV40

Then, the last battle of the gym:

Blazing Leader Matias
All Pokemon LV50
Snorlax (can learn Fire Punch, Sunny Day, Flamethrower and Fire Blast)
Ludicolo (Nature Power=Overheat)

As the battle is on a Lava River (The Pokemon are on rocks) using physical attacks, except if you are Fire or Flying, does damage to your Pokemon. Also, Fire attacks increase its power by 10%. If you win, I would give you a TM with my favourite move, Flamethrower, and 5000 money

July 5th, 2006, 2:01 PM
My gym wouldn't be an official pokemon league gym, more of a gym like the one in Saffron (obviously not Sabrina's). It would be a place perfect for me and my pokemon to train. Workout stuff etc. Other trainers would be able to come and train too with the equipment and things. Trainers would also be able to take battling challenges against me, eg. single battles, double battles, certain type battles and all sorts of 'certain rule battles'. They'd recieve prizes for completing different challenges too.

Espeon Master
July 5th, 2006, 3:06 PM
I'd probably go with a flying type gym located on an island outside Vermillion. The island would be a bird sanctuary as well.
Challanges are single battles, 3 pokemon per trainer, no time limit.
Reward: Breeze badge and Aerial Ace


Pidgeot- male- lv. 40
Wing attack
Mirror move
Steel wing

Fearow- male- lv. 42
Drill peck
Aerial Ace

Steel wing
Aerial Ace
Rock slide
Drill peck

Tropius- male- lv.40
Magical Leaf

Charizard- male- lv. 43

Dragon claw

July 5th, 2006, 8:03 PM
Mine would be a bit complicated.

It would double as a museum, with 5 different rooms (not counting the exhibit halls), each one depicting a different part of history.

The first room would be from Feudal Japan, the Junior Trainer would most resemble a Ninja and use the following pokemon:


The secound room would be of artifacts from Egypt and other ancient cultures, the Junior Trainer would be a ruin maniac have the following pokemon:


The third room would be designed like a pirate ship, and I would probably have someone who resembles an Aqua Grunt or something, who would have:


The forth room would be designed like a labrotory, and the trainer would be a scientist with the following pokemon:


The last room would be my own, designed to resemble an ancient Chinese palace, or a cave, either one, can't decide, I would have the following Pokemon:


Winners (if there are any), would get a Dragonbreath TM, and a Legends badge, that is shaped like a white dragon.

Images pending.

July 5th, 2006, 9:34 PM
I would have a dark type GYM. I would have many different pokemon depending on the trainers, but some you include: Poochyena, Mightyena, Sableye, Houndour, Houndoom, Murkrow, Absol, Sneasel, and a Weavile (Once my starter). The reason for all the different pokemon would be the different region factor, if you completed a region already, you will be put against stronger pokemon. The GYM would be located on an Island, somewhere in-between the regions. On the outside the GYM appears to be a temple. But inside the GYM is quite modern. Besides being a GYM it’s also a hotel, with a small store, a healing center, and on the second floor there’s rooms for bored. It is also wildly used as training center, there are many different trainers, most being Hex Maniacs, (trainers that I, the GYM leader don’t like vary much, viewing most of them a stereo types, but allow to be trainers anyway) and others being trainers that love dark pokemon ( I Myself became a GYM leader to show everyone the good in Dark type pokemon.) The first floor of the GYM contains the shop, center, and lounge area. The third is wear the GYM battles are held, and the forth is the training area, with six small battle fields wear random battles can be held, sometimes torments may be held, with common to rare dark pokemon, and Money is the prize. All this makes the GYM very popular, it’s know as the Kurai Island GYM. For wining the GYM battle the trainer gets The Shadow Badge, and TM 30, Shadow Ball, despite this being a Ghost pokemon move, it is the Gyms signature attack. And that’s my big advanced GYM, it’s mostly reached by boat, and is open to anyone who wants to stay the night, relax, train, or if the trainer has at least five badges, make a challenge. Had fun righting this, hope you liked it.
