I think my favourite will always be Skyla, but with Marlon joining Gen V that choice may be changed! I would have liked Elesa more if my battle with her wasn't so frustrating. Then there is Cheren... Too hard to decide between the three!

How about you guys?

I still prefer Clay compared to the newer Gym Leaders because I love his accent!
Boilurn, the Scald Pokemon and the evolved form of Hottle. It can burn the holder by the lightest of touches when it boils. It can boil 3 gallons of water in one minute.

I picked Cheren, Roxie, and Drayden, but out of those three, Roxie is easily at the top for me. I don't know what about her makes me like her so much, but I She's awesome.

Marlon is definitely my favorite. He's so chill and uses a Wailord. Not only that, sometimes he'll take a picture with you at the face board.

I voted for Roxie, Burgh, and Elesa, which happen to be consecutive gyms.

Roxie was great addition! We have never had an alternative chick as a gym leader. I love the vibe of the city as well. It is not overdone, yet still has a grungy seaport charm, in which Roxie is able to complement.

Burgh is apparently not liked by anyone else, haha. I liked his honeycomb gym, but the cacoon gym too it to a whole new level of whimsical, in addition to the colorful paint room in which you encounter Burgh. Plus, I love bug pokemon.

Elesa, do I even need to say anything? Tall, blonde, composed, model, that specializes in electric types. Well, actually, she had jet black hair in BW2 which was probably the most fresh revamp from the previous version, along with her plush Mareep-fur coat, and head phones that resembled pointed ears.

I chose Roxie, Elesa, and Drayden. Roxie because she uses one of my favorite types, Poison. And because she's one of the very few characters in the series whose voice we hear. Elesa because of her really awesome outfit, good personality, and general attractiveness. And Drayden because of his cool beard and cool outfit.

I like how determined and hardworking Clay is, but I think Marlon's laid back attitude beats Clay by a slight margin. Also water is one of my favorite types.
If I were to have a "Dream team," this would be it.

There wasn't one Gym Leader in Unova that really stood out to me, but with his interesting gym layouts and having built the PWT for tourism, Clay gets the nod as my favorite.

Cheren! He grew to be such an adorable character and I was so happy to see him as a gym leader. While I wish he was further in the game rather than the very first leader, his rank as a beginner leader still fit him. <3

Maybe you should chat with my little sister, Gym Leader Rozu. She's kind of a Roxie fanatic right now!

Drayden has to be the coolest. He is a dragon master. However, when it comes down to it, its Drayden or the water gym leader (Opelucid City)

From left to right, Rogetta, Rogon, Rogastar.

Roxie all the way! I know her better as Homika which is an insanely cool name and she uses my favourite type of Pokémon along with some really cool individuals on her team and an exceptionally unique character background/gym theme. I love her style and her team is similar to what I'd train, so she'll always be a favourite of mine. Shame about the white hair though!
