And is gym isn't necessarily in Undella. ;x Besides, why would the last gym leader have only 3 Pokemon?
Iris/Drayden only had Three Pokemon. If they are still following the same pattern, who is to say that these won't go 2, 2, 3, 3, 3, 3, 3, 3. We know that the first two Gyms have 2 Pokemon (Cheren and Homika), Elesa had three in B/W, although the trailer only shows two, we can assume she has three placing her fourth+, and Shizui's Gym is in some sort of Port city with a lot of docks, there is only one place like that and that's where Undella bay was.

As for Gym skips, that only happened in Gens 1 and 3 as major story elements with Giovanni and Norman (Giovanni being the leader of Team Rocket and neglecting his Gym leader role, and Norman telling his child that he would not battle them unless they had four badges.) Gen 4's changes. You DO meet Fantina and see her gym in Pearl/Platinum while you don't get to challenge them yet, but in Platinum you challenge her when you get to Hearthome so her Gym placement switched.

If they skip gyms, I don't think it'll be Elesa's gym that gets skipped seeing as she was a highlight to the Trailer.

If they don't skip than that would mean that there is a trainer before Elesa, my guess is it's Burgh as it seems like one gets to Castelia before her city.

Oh right I forgot about that. Even so, the location doesn't look directly like Undella, so the gym might be somewhere different. Besides maybe the gym could be like nearby it since it seems to be floating on something which Undella isn't.

Well that might be kinda awkward because we already know Homika/Shizui are water/poison exclusively, as well as Cheren as normal exclusively. Elesa could be electric/steel and relocated to the steel area but I kinda doubt it. :(

I think Shizui will be replacing Clay and Homika will be replacing Skyla, we know Elesa is returning, Cheren is taking Lenora's place & Brycen has some role in the game so that just leaves Drayden/Iris & The Striaton Trio who I'd assume would possibly link up with the shadow triad and Iris may have taken over Drayden for both games after his retierment for example.

Striaton guys have been confirmed not to be Triad by eyes :x Besides, if so, that'd mean there's a new gym leader so either Clay or Skyla are staying. I think it's Skyla-- if I did the maths right. XD;

Clay plz! He was much more fierce and his dialogue is too amusing. Especially with older Pokemon returning, I would love for him to remain a Gym Leader.

I want Clay back. Skyla was boring as all can be. ;A;
Plus with more ground Pokemon coming back, his team will be epic. <3
Or, maybe they'll change his type into Steel! -GASP- THAT WOULD BE AWESOME

Actually i would like to see how Skyla's team turns out, but i agree that they should keep clay, I also wouldn't mind him turning into a steel gym.

I dunno I'm kinda hoping that we get more new Gyms. I still want a Dark Gym. We may not get one seeing as Homika is the final Gym in the Anime apparently since they've made no mention of Shizui in the Anime yet.

Out of Clay & Skyla I'd much prefer Skyla to return, I love her typing, looks, personallity etc. With Clay it's the opposite but I'd like to think Skyla had a bigger part in the storyline than Clay so it's more likely she'll return.

I agree with the part about Skyla being better, but Clay had a bigger part in the story, he held the team plasma grunts in custody and met Ghetsis.

I agree, Clay played an more important role. I think though that in the end both Clay and Skyla will be returning.

Actually yeah, Skyla's team really needs improving. You can't just leave it at what she had imo, it has to be a bit better because she was basically the weakest of all.

Another reason for Skyla to stay! Plus she needs a bigger role too. :3

I would like to see Skarmory and Staraptor/Pideot on her team, that would be a huge improvement in it self

I think of Skarm more as steel than flying tbh, but Pidgeot or Staravia would greatly improve her lacking team - maybe both and a Swanna?

Well I could see Shizui having a Poliwag or a Poliwhirl (and if there are rematches, later on a Politoad). There are so many choices for water types though. :c

Tympole, Poliwag, and Lotad lines? (he has lily pads in his gym)

Or...Lotad, Lombre, Ludicolo~

Or...Triple Ludicolo~ Just give him a Pokeball wig, some 60's threads and some grove~

I would hope his team would be made with a mixture of water types and not evolutions of the same line. :[

Or Shizui's team would consist of random "Fish" Pokemon (hence the netting he carries) such as Magikarp, Seaking, etc.
Or "Deep Sea" Pokemon (he has diving goggles and leg fin thingies...) like Gorebyss (name doesn't suit them imo), Clampearl, or Jellicent.
Or we could screw that idea and just give him 2 Gyarados and a Lapras. Yup.

I think his team will be the Second gym, so levels around 14-16 maybe, maybe polliwirl, Lombre and Tympol?

Homika is Second.

Shizui is Third on up due to number of Pokemon, and Fifth on up due to possible location of his Gym.

Skarmory would make sense for Skyla since airplanes are made of metal and fly like the said Pokemon.
