Personally I feel like it's the only option they have. These are sequels, and if we're playing as the same trainers we've already beaten the Unova gym leaders.
I agree with the above quote.
I think that if they are trying to make a version 1.5 of it, but slapping a 2 on instead, it needs to be from different angles to be convincing.

Wolf suggested something about protags that made me think... perhaps Homika/Shizui's teams can be version exclusive. So in Black, Homika has Venipede, while in White, she has Trubbish! And they just go like that with each parallel. Might be a nice twist!

^ That would be cool as heck! Like, Koffing in one version, and Grimer in the other! That'd be sweet. I'd definitely be excited for that.
Shizui could also have one form of Basulin in one version, and then the other form in the other version!
Now I want this to happen. Make this happen. ;;

I think they are going to move Brycen as well. He didn't really seem to "fit" with everyone. Maybe he's off researching Kyurem?

Oh awesome, Basculin forms per version would make more sense than throwing anything together. Maybe Ducklett and Wingull - with each game concentrating more on the present or past aka new Pokemon or just Unova Polemon for the gym leaders.

And about Brycen yeah that could be logical and replace him with a new ice leader.

Once you think about it your right even though brycen did lead you to the dragonspiral tower i feel that his character was not developed enoughother than being a very softspoken moviestar(a girl said it in town)

Thats another thing i would like to the characters not just the gym leaders developed even more
For example if Homika is the rebellious daughter of janine

I'm starting to think that Brycen might be replaced and made into an E4 (seeing how every odd gen has had an ice e4) so maybe the new gym leader could be a steel or possibly a rock gym to go with the DragonSpiral tower being a ruin.

!!!!just had an idea!!!!
What if they moved the Dragon gym to Icirrus, where I think it belongs, and then the Opelucid gym would be split-If you play Black, it would be Dark type,(because dark is black) and if you play White, it would be...Psychic? Or Fire? Those are bright types. And later you could battle the other one.

I would like a dual type gym with dark, and psychic type gym leader twins.

Probably because there's Dragonspiral Tower and Druddigon is also found there. Though if the Dragon type Gym Leaders moved over to Icirrus, they'd better have more Dragon types appear in the wild. :B

Oh and I'd like to see a split between a Electric/Fire gym for Opelucid. Considering Chili may start his own separate Fire type Gym (if followed by anime); it also goes along with the red/blue scheme.

Maybe because at that time it was too close to Lacunosa and the ice build up, isntead of the snow build-up was detrimental to the dragon Pokemon so they moved to the next closest place?

Guys Icirrus City is undeniably icy during winter. Puddles frozen over, snow covering the city everywhere, I mean it felt really fitting for its name. Granted this season only happens thrice momentarily but I coincidentally reached Icirrus City during that season in-game so I had no qualms about it not being too Ice-type related. I guess Dragon-type in it would be okay 'cause you guys stated good reasons but I had no problem with the local Gym's Ice-typing.

Also I want the idea of version exclusive Pokémon for each Gym Leader to become a reality so much. And Opelucid City getting a Fire/Electric split would be neat but they would probably do it across versions and not in both. Still interesting if they do the imo probable!

I think there still will be ice gym in Icirrus. That would make even more sense in B2/W2. If you look at "frozen" Unova map, Icirrus has something to do with ice. So, I think in Icirrus, we might learn about Kyurem being powerful ice-type who caused Icirrus to have snowy environment during the whole year - that would make Icirrus being snowy regardless of in which season player arrives there. In post game, after Kyurem's ice is gone, Icirrus would go back to it's normal seasonal environment.

I too think that the ice gym will stick in Icirrus even though I'm not all that sure Brycen will still be the gym leader. Personally I'll like him to move up to the E4, and get a new gym leader, perhaps a girl so that our number of ice gym leaders will be even by gender.

True, I don't really think GF will move Brycen over anywhere else. To be honest, none of the gyms need to move desperately. I'm fine with where the gyms are placed, but I'd like for Icirrus to have more icy effects like you mentioned with Kyurem and all.

The reason that I thought that Opelucid should have a dark/psychic split is because those are typically the dark and light types so the gym design wouldn't technically have to be changed, as it focuses on black and white, and plus it goes with the split theme of the city.

I doubt Opelucid Gym will have another type. I think dragon gym will have connection to Kyurem's dragon typing, the same like ice gym in Icirrus will have connection to Kyurem's ice typing. Also, Black Opelucid is fitting to Black Kyurem's electricity (modern energy) and White Opelucid is fitting to White Kyurem's fire (ancient energy).

Almost positive we will see another Steel type gym.

But where would it be? I don't know, I'm sure they are expanding the region anyways. So probably in a newer city. Probably be a male too.

The poison Gym leader has a koffing/weezing.

They have been guaranteed to be in the new game.

Based on the trailer, I think it's safe to say there's some new Gyms, or at least revamped Gyms. Or, maybe both. :D

In that steel area we saw uhhh last week! I'd want it to be a female, though, so it relates back to Johto and there are too many men who have ground/rock etc those type of gyms. :(

Oh right there was that steely area that kinda felt like an industrialized Driftveil City of sorts, it's likely they will place a Steel-type Gym Leader there. Very unlikely for that person to be female but I would love another take on the Jasmine character. I liked Jasmine the most out of the Johto Gym Leaders and also among the Steel-type Gym Leaders, so if they make a female one that's just as awesome, I might just have a new favourite.

If Opelucid does change type, it could be Ice to fit with Kyurem, or Fire/Electric depending on the version. I don't think they'll make Opelucid a gray area at all. After all, the titles are still named Black and White-- they're simply numbered sequels. Although what would have happened to Iris and Drayden, I don't know.

If they're still splitting Opelucid up with each game, I can't see them getting rid of one and having the same leader for both. But what I can see is Drayden retiring, and getting a new Dragon-type leader to replace him along with Iris. :3

Agreed. For once I'd like to see a female Gym Leader who's hardcore like Maylene, but just not with the Fighting types. Steel would be great though.

@Toujours ; I could see Drayden retiring, but I hope he still has a placement in the game and storyline. He did give us information about Zekrom and Reshiram and you would think after two years, he'd have known more about dragons like Kyurem.

Brycen be promoted sure is a possibility, but I don't see Dragon Spiral as ruins. And if they wanted something in the area to draw back to Rock or Steel gym they could just use Twist Mountain Mining.

I'm hoping for a still gym as well.

I have a feeling it may be in Driftveil or maybe Burgh was either replaced or relocated, because he didn't feel in place at Castelia.
