I'm pretty sure that since Black 2 and White 2 are going to have a LOT of version differences again, like Black & White 1, that the leader for Opelucid Gym will depend on the version again as well.

Like, if Iris is the leader of your version, the town has grown more agricultural: maybe vines growing up the sides of buildings, little windowsill gardens, some terracotta archways...

Or if Drayden is the leader of your version, the sidewalks are actually conveyor belts, there are lots of street lamps, cars & trucks moving overhead, a huge futuristic clock tower...

Also, I'm pretty sure there are only two gym paths that make any kind of sense:

Cheren - Homika - Burgh - Elesa - Clay - Skyla - Drayden/Iris - Shizui

Cheren - Homika - Burgh - Elesa - Clay - Skyla - Shizui - Drayden/Iris

The first one is a linear path. I'm pretty sure most people agree that Shizui seems to be located someplace in Eastern Unova, and since there's a clear path from the starting town all the way to Opelucid (and only 7 gyms currently visible), it could be that the Kyurem plot plays out after Gym 7. Only afterwards would we face Gym 8.

Now, path #2 is kinda interesting! If, after we beat Skyla, she lets us hitch a ride one her plane, maybe she'll fly us over to the new airport that's in Eastern Unova (you can see it on the map) and we'll face Shizui over there before the 8th Gym.

^ The air port there will actually make sense than...

I want Brycen to be a gym leader but I also want Clay to stay... also if he isn't why is Brycen the only former gym leader shown...even if he is will they explain what became of the missing gym leaders?

Not sure if this belongs here....but BulbaNewsNOW (Bulbgarden/Bulbanews twitter) account has leaked all eight Unova Gym Leaders....but the photo is grainy. Really grainy.



Spoiler:
Looks to me Clay, Drayden and Burgh returns.....but who's the top one on the right? Wait....that's Skyla....looks like their artwork remains the same. Elesa's is the only returning Gym Leader to receive new art.

The one on the top right is Skyla btw.

The Gym Leaders shown are: Drayden, Clay, Cheren, Elesa, Skyla, Burgh, Shizui and Homika. So, only Lenora, Brycen and the Striaton Trio got replaced.

I guess this confirmed Brycen stopped being Gym Leader cos his hometown was frozen and he now works in Pokewood.

So, I wonder if Drayden will be exclusive to Black 2 or will he be Gym Leader in both games?

Yup, Skyla.

And With Drayden, Clay, Burgh, Skyla, And Elesa returning with three new Gym Leaders, I doubt he's a version exclusive this time around.

Ahh so no Brycen after all if true...oh well at least he wasn't put under the bus like Lenora or triplets (if they aren't you know who).

I'm predicting this order for the Gyms after seeing the link:

1. Cheren (Normal, Basic Badge)
2. Homika (Poison, Toxic Badge)
3. Burgh (Bug, Insect Badge)
4. Elesa (Electric, Bolt Badge)
5. Shizui (Water, ???? Badge)
6. Clay (Ground, Quake Badge)
7. Skyla (Flying, Jet Badge)
8. Drayden (Dragon, Legend Badge)

True, and I like he actually has somewhat of a role now from gym duties. He's too cool for that...excuse the pun. XP

I'm hope the order could be Cheren, Homika, Shizui, Burgh, Elesa, Clay, Skyla and lastly Drayden? Based on the map that what's I'm going for.

And crap...Iris is moving up then? Possible Elite Four Member this go around?

Maybe this could signal that Iris has become an Elite Four member?

Also, I wonder what name they will give to Shizui's badge?

This is just an advertisement from corocoro. They can still have updated art in the strategy guides coming soon.

Good question. Seeing how the gym layout appears with lilypads and ponds and such, its name be something related to that.

What did happen to Iris...
Perhaps Shizui is 7th taking Brycen's position either that or third, pushing the old guard up a rank except Drayden who's kept his spot.

No Iris? :( I'm okay with Drayden being that gym leader tho. I agree with whoever said Shizui would take Brycen's spot since he doesn't seem to fit in anywhere earlier. :x

Aw, bye bye Iris. She was always my favourite, even if I never actually battled against her.

While I would have liked a bit more shake-up with the Gym Leaders, hopefully the way that these ones are presented in BW2 will mean there'll be a nice bit of variety, instead of simply rehashing the same teams from the previous games.

Oh thank the Lord Iris is gone. She annoyed the HECK out of me. I am so excited that Clay is back. Legit, I can't wait. <3
I still wanna know what happened to Iris. Maybe she's a full time Dragon trainer?
And I think that Shizui is indeed taking Brycen's spot.

No Iris? D: I actually liked her as a Gym Leader, but I think she could have a supporting role this time around.

Anyway, I'm kind of disappointed that no new Gym Leaders other than Homika and Shizui were revealed, but I'm fine with that because I like Homika.

I also agree with Hikari10's predicted gym lineup; it kind of makes sense to me that they might use a similar gym lineup as the original B/W.

Lol we were lied to or the POkemon fan sites misinterpreted. I was sure Brycen wouldn't be in it, Iccirus is frozen over, but they said otherwise. Glad he isn't though.

Hopefully this is only Black 2's line up...why Iris? Her city isn't frozen over like the Triplets', Lenora's, or Brycen's towns.

For some reason I have a feeling that Shizui will give you the Wave Badge, IIRC it hasn't been used before and it suits him pretty well IMO.

Wave Badge? I could see that. Probably means his name won't be Wade then. That is a bit too cheesy, even for GAME FREAK.

There is supposedly only 1 City frozen and I doubt its any of the Gym Cities right now. The one in the trailer was fairly large (it could have been exaggerated for the trailer, but still). Iccirus wasn't that large, would make sense if it were Lenora's city cause it's fairly large though it could be the Second city from the game and not any of the Gym Cities.

As for the line up posted, that wouldn't really be the same as the B/W line up cause you'd have to travel through Black City/White Forest to get to Undella to battle Shizui then back to Nimbasa to get to Driftvell to battle Clay and move on from there.

I'm still goin with the linear pattern they had before:
Cheren, Homika, Burgh, Elesa, Clay, Skyla, Drayden, Shuzui

Imo Shizui might be 7th and Drayden 8th. This gyms' order is currently shown in Bulbapedia. I think Opelucid Gym might be skipped during first visit in Opelucid, player will have to go through Lacunosa to Undella (where Shizui gym might be). After getting badge from Shizui, player will have to go to Giant Chasm, encounter Kyurem, go to Opelucid to get last badge and from Opelucid to League.

No they aren't shown in order on Bulbapedia. Bulbapedia even says that the order in which the Gyms are ranked is still currently unknown.

I'm not saying it's official order but there it is:

http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Unova#Gym_Leaders_2

It makes sense, making Opelucid Gym last and going straight to League. Giant Chasm might be blocked by ice boundary while going to Undella to get 7th badge from Shizui. While going back to Opelucid, ice boundary would open.
