Apparently this is a new feature in the game (apparently, not definitely). What do you guys think? How could they utilise this feature/make best use of it?

I'm simply assuming that's just a giant gym puzzle.

The walls and floor come away iirc, I don't really see how Player Owned Gyms would work either.

Only way I could see this working, if it was like a mini game, like the battle centres or something like that. A number of people would come in and you could try to set records and become undefeated.

Or, there is a players gym, where anyone can become the gym leader, but you have to defeat the current leader to gain his spot; like winner stays on.

Would be cool, but doubt it would be implemented.

It could involve random trainers coming to you rather than the other way around. Though I don't think that's what this is, definitely looks like just that gym's unique puzzle.

Where did you here this?

I'd like to see it happen as a post-game option where NPC's can challenge you and you could take it online also assuming this is true. But I doubt it will happen.

It just hit me! What if this is some kind of extra challenge, done via Streetpass? Each trainer sets up a whole gym, so that they could exchange that info whenever they are nearby! It would be boss to face a customized gym leader, or even get a badge from a friend.

I think that it is a cool feature. Maybe you will be able to create a town, and then players via wifi will be able to visit your town and battle you as gym leader. After they beat you, they can have a badge that you are allowed to create which will be added to their player card for all of your friends to see.

Or it could be a puzzle. :p

I think it could work almost like the Join Avenue, where you can battle random trainers, gym leaders or even people you've traded or battled with before. Earning points to raise your gym status and decoration or whatever. They could grab the idea of the join avenue shops as to be part of your gym grounds or city territory, where you would have your breeder, trainer, shop clerk, stylist or whatever can make easier for you to train your pokemon.

Customization is always something we've been looking for in a pokemon game

Hm... player owned gyms, sounds interesting but I don't think it would happen. Though at that point in the trailer it really did sound like the gym was really amazing.

But if player owned gyms really did get implemented into the game, I'd really like to see some random people from all over the world battle you for your custom gym badge, which would be something to do with connecting to people all over the world. It would be interesting though.

Didn't the player own the only gym in Gale of Darkness? I was thinking it would probably be something like that, but what you guys are speculating sounds pretty awesome.

I can't see this being much more interesting than the battle subway or something if this was a thing. Actually, I'd see it as being LESS interesting, since with the battle subway you were working your way towards the leaders, but in this case you ARE the leader. I could only seeing this being fun if you could design your own gym, (which it appears to be if this IS the create your own gym) but even that would wear off pretty quickly I think. Hm, maybe if you could have wifi players challenge you!? (but then it'd just be like a normal battle with you at the disadvantage since you have a monotype). :/

This would be a nice feature, sadly that pic (from the direct video) comes after the fact that the picture is after that room with the stary sky and weird lighting looks like the psychic gym.

Maybe the new plot is that you are a hobo who tries living inside different gyms in secret. When the gym leaders find out, you have to make your Pokemon beat up theirs. Eventually you sell enough Pokemon on the Black and White market that you get to buy your own gym! Then all of the previous gym leaders become homeless, and join team Rocket. And that was how Team Rocket was made. :3

I agree, it's probably some sort of Psychic gym. Maybe like Sabrina's gym in the anime. The one with the doll house.

It would be a cool street pass feature, and I would defenentially take part in that as well as possible. I hope that this is correct! (And for the gym puzzle believers, you may be right. I've just got my hopes up!)
Perhaps so, but we've seen it happen with our very own eyes. The answer is out there, Luke - we just need to find it. -Professor Layton

nice! i totally suport this XD.
and let's create a light type while we're at it so that when you finish the game said gym leaders don't simply join TR but also fall to the dark side of the pokeforce!
also i think darth vader should be the new champion so you get to have an epic battle using your brand new, shiny light saber... hmm, sorry i mean light type to defeat him.
oh and right before you fight him he could say something like: X, i'm your father... come to the Y side of the pokeforce!
not only would it give us a reason to have a light type, it also would give us a father for the 2nd time in 6 gens!

oh my, can't wait for it!

Nah, player-led gyms make no sense at all. Let's say you own your own gym and you get challenged by an NPC. If you win, you get a little money like any other NPC battle. If you lose, you give this NPC a badge and...they disappear because they're just an NPC. It was a fruitless loss.

Let's add in Streetpass and say you challenge someone's gym. You lose, it's like any other loss. You win, you get...a badge? What kind of badge? Is this badge personalized to tailor to that specific person's gym? That results in an infinite number of badges. Do all Streetpass gyms give the same badge? That means you only need to battle one.

There's no suitable reward system if you win and no special outcome if you lose.

Probably after the elite four they could make it so an extra gym is built for the protagonist? I dunno I feel stealing a gym from a gym leader is kind of mean.....

Negative. Typically the person beating the Champion is the new Champion. Being given nothing more than a Gym is sort of a demotion. Thus I will squash that storyline being an idea.

Doesn't mean I don't like it, though!
