If Brycen isn't a leader then i have a strong feeling he will take part in the story, people seem to forget he told us the legend of Reshiram and Zekrom in the first place, but between him and clay it's kind of tied with me cause I really like them both.

I'd prefer Clay to keep his spot rather than Brycen anyway; his character was a lot more outgoing.
Because so far we have five confirmed (normal,poison,water,electric, and flying) and if one takes a look at the badge case it seems as if Burgh will be returning making it 6 and Brycen will make it seven. I'm guessing that Iris will stay but you never know...so Clay be or may not be in...

Don't give up! D;
They haven't ALL been announced yet! I'm still rootin' for a Dark Gym. But if not, as long as they have Clay, I'm Gucci. But really, if Drayden has moved on to being an E4 member and Iris is a Gym Leader, I'm gonna be a little irritated that it's going to be G/S/C, HG/SS all over again.

Nooo. u_u
A Dark-type Gym is very unlikely at this point. Maybe next gen?

But yeah so far we have five Gym Leaders (technically four) fighting for three spots.
Why not just have all ten though? Heh, screw the magical eight.
  • Cheren
  • Homika
  • Shizui
  • Burgh
  • Elesa
  • Clay
  • Skyla
  • Brycen
  • Iris/Drayden
I believe they'll go with it at that order, too. Give or take a few. Shizui can be relocated to a later Gym but he always stood out for me as an early Gym, I don't know why. Also, we aren't really sure that the player character will go about the region in the same path as the BW protags, so maybe the old Gym Leaders returning can switch around in order, too. But yeah regarding the current surplus of Gym Leaders, if no one becomes an Elite Four member then I'm leaning towards Brycen retiring and opening his spot. :(

Well yeah so far gen V has really switched up the order of what normally happens so with the introduction of new leaders they technically could skip the tradition of eight, given how they changed the e4.

Id prefer it if there were 10, it would make the games even more separated from the others and it would be more challenging, as unlikely as it is it's still possible.

Ten gyms would be so fun! D:
That'd be a neat little thing to do. It seems that the anime MIGHT (don't quote me on it) be heading into that direction, as well. Maybe, idk. If Ash is going to be battling Homika, Shizui, AND Drayden for a Gym battle, I could see us having ten badges and ten gyms in the next game!

I agree, ten would be great (it'll be like Ash in the anime as mentioned by...)
If they do this I hope that the later gym leaders have more than three to make them even more challenging.

Hopefully it's not just me, but I hate that the last few gyms have only 3 Pokemon. Not much of a challenge, is it? OGod plsplspls let the later gyms have more Pokemon...
I'm confused about Brycen. Is he going to have a single role in PokeWood or is he also going to be the gym leader? Truth be told I don't really like him... + I want a Dark Gym sooo bad.

Not very much, but Shizui has three pokemon on his team. It don't help very much however, considering the first Unova had mainly only three or less Pokemon on the gym leaders team.

I don't think that will be the case this time round, all the leaders in Unova used Unova Pokémon, there are only 3 new Ice & Dragon evolutionary lines introduced in Generation V, Cryogonal, Beartic & Vanilluxe and then Hydreigon, Druddigon & Haxorus. Hopefully in B2W2 because of the way the Pokédex has increased by a large number (upto 300 for the post-national dex) their teams may be more versatile which will help you fill out your Pokédex like in previous games.

These new gyms do need versatility, which BW did lack. So, I agree completely with you.

If Shizui is fourth or seventh or eighth which are the positions I think he has a chance at then our hopes for more than three Pokemon aren't looking too good since he only has three pokemon in the trailers...

Yeah I don't think it's gunna change from the 3 we saw in the trailer. :x If 3 is the standard if every gym that'll just make the possible rematches much more interesting, since they allow for many more changes in the teams.

^ Yeah kind of like the rematches against the E4 were,when they had two extra pokemon and some replacements.
Well I can say this now, I don't think there will be a Dark type gym this time around.

It's fairly unlikely at this point, but it could still happen. Bearing in mind that so far we only know of five confirmed gym leaders, leaving a possible maximum of three entirely new gym leaders (although this is unlikely, as mentioned). Burgh, Clay, Brycen and Drayden/Iris may not make comebacks at all. I remember someone earlier in the thread mentioning that Burgh's gym badge curves downwards at a sharper angle than the silhouette of the third badge in the picture of Cheren giving you the basic badge. Chances are it probably is Burgh's badge, but you never know.

If Grimsley is confirmed to remain a member of the E4, I think the chances of a Dark type gym are essentially eliminated.

In one of the recent trailers they showed Opelucid city (Black version) so chances are that Drayden and Iris might be returning (then again that doesn't really mean they will be gym leaders seeing how they show Clay's city on the map).

Well the fact that Drayden appeared in the anime makes me think that he may be returning in the actual games, whether that be as a gym leader or not I don't know. He could have easily upgraded to an Elite Four Member or even Champion, it does suit him after all.

Even if he appears in the anime it doesn't mean that he'll necessarily appear in the game. But if it does it could simply be in a role similar to the professor, to give you information and help you out.

I do think it would be better to see him in the E4 though.

I'm guessing we may actually see rematches! c:
Homika is shown to own a Garbodor in the anime, so maybe this means that she will have a Trubbish, and later in the games we actually get to see the Gym Leaders with improved teams! Of course this is me shooting in the dark at this hope I have, but it'd be fun as heck!

I'm pretty sure they will be, I was kinda surprised they were excluded from Black & White but they usually save the rematches for the third game so hopefully there will be.

I'm hoping for Gym Leader rematches given that Homika is the second Gym Leader yet she has a Garbodor in the anime.

I agree with Jellicent, she might have a Trubbish along with Koffing is this was the case.

New Rumor says Burgh is still third Gym, so so far they are still in the same order if this is true. Which really questions where they are going to put Shizui.

There's two games so I'm pretty sure Iris and Drayden will be the last Gym Leader, the one varying on which game you get. I mean why wouldn't they do that?
