I hate all the puzzles you have to do in every gym.
I'd rather just battle trainers and go right to the Leader instead of doing stupid obsticles.


What about you?

YES!!!! All of the early gyms (Usually the first two, minus Dewford and Eterna) don't have puzzles, therefore my favorites

The only puzzle gym in G1 was the psychic gym, I think... Yes, god, I hate puzzles in gyms. Takes all the fun out of fighting and beating all the trainers.

The not so invisalbe walls in one game was kinda fun

g4 takes puzzles to new extremes. I go in, do the puzzles (battle all the trainers) then go out and heal. on sunnyshores and snowpoints gyms it was annoying to have to figure it out again

Oh yeah, forgot about Koga/the poison gym. I guess that counts too.

I like the puzzles. They give the gyms more variety. The only one that actually gave me some sort of problem was Candice's gym.

However, Super Smash Bros. Brawl already knows four pokemon characters.
Should a character be deleted and replaced with Lucario?
Which character should be forgotten?

I like them because most of the time they force you to battle everybody which makes you a better trainer and weaker for the Gym leader which makes it more challenging

You actually also forgot about Lt. Surge's annoying double-switch trickery. That one really ticked me, when I'd find it, and after doing a bit of trial and error selection, always coming up short... >_<

Blaine also had riddles, in his Gym, I believe, while Viridian City Gym had moving floor panels, much like the Celadon City Team Rocket base. Totalling 5 Gyms in Generation I with tricks/puzzles.

Personally, there are some puzzles I can handle, such as Dewford Gym's and Pastoria Gym's, but then there are those like Vermillion Gym... I really hate those... Trial and Error is annoying... ._.;;

The trouble with gym puzzles is that I would always have to do them twice. I'd get through them one time to clear out all the trainers, go back and heal at the Pokemon Center, then come back to the gym a second time, go through the puzzles again, and challenge the Gym Leader.

I would prefer to have all the trainers lined up in a cluster or in a row so that you could defeat all them first. Then the Gym puzzle would pave the path to the Leader. I like puzzles. I think they express the creativity of the game designers and are generally fun to solve. I would actually prefer that the puzzles be longer and more challenging than what they are so long as I wouldn't have to go through them twice.

I enjoy them. I mean, in Pokemon it's always BATTLE! BATTLE! BATTLE! Gym puzzles really aren't that hard, but at least they're a change of pace...

The puzzles keep the game interesting and make the gyms unique instead of just having the same lineup of trainers that often stand in front of the gym leader because that was be monotonous and take away from the challenge. I like the puzzles, but they can be annoying and unnecessary; the puzzle at Candice's gym gave me a little trouble, but for the most part, the puzzles aren't that bad. They may be tedious and based completely on chance, as in Lt. Surge's gym, but other puzzles like the ones in Fantina's and Koga's gym were nice diversions from the battling.

I personally prefer the puzzles. They aren't too hard and they make the gyms much funner. I think it would be better if the puzzles where actually longer.

i lol at Fantina's puzzles.

"What's 18-6?"

Always picked the wrong door so I could get the exp, so in a way being stupid was actually being smart.

Some of the puzzles are okay but the one in the Sunnyshore Gym is very difficult I think, I spent the best part of 2 hours battling the trainers and working the puzzle out.

I liked the puzzles, as everyone says because it's a change of pace. My favorite one of all time was Pryce's sliding floor (Candice's was a bit challenging..).

I prefer the gyms with Puzzles to the ones without. anyone can battle, but the puzzles add some logic into the games, they actually make you think.
oh, t3hjolteon: there was one gym where all the trainers were all in one place... to an extent. i dont remember his name, it was the gym leader before Jasmine in the G/S/C games, i think...
either way, i do prefer a challenge in getting to the gym leader than walking right up to him. the only one that gave me a little trouble was Candices gym.

Lt. Surge's was really crap honestly. I am pretty sure those switches are purely random, no challenge in that, just luck.

As for the rest, I think they're actually a good twist to the trainer-battle experience, even though I like battling too.

WHA?! I love them! I wish there were more puzzles throughout the game! I wouldn't be so hardpressed to say something like "Yeah I just wanna fight the damn trainers and leader and get out of there" if the battles weren't so freakin easy. The puzzles are harder than the actual battles. They actually make you think, rather than just hitting the same button on the same move over and over and OHKO-ing pretty much every opponent.

I Like those puzzles because they exercise the mind and yes I do agree that they do get annoying.

Sometimes you can do them without fighting people.
