I know we haven't even seen a glimpse of the Gym Leaders but hey, what better time to think of them than now?

Do you think they're going to do a dark type Gym Leader finally? Or perhaps a Gym Leader can dual specialize this time around?

Ahh I'm looking forward to the gym leaders <3. I think they'll throw in some more unusual types than the regular Rock/Water/Grass etc., it'd definitely be cool seeing either a Dark or Ghost gym-leader. I think they might also give them a little boost in skill and strategy since sometimes, certain gym leaders in previous games proved absolutely no challenge at all. But yeah I'm looking forward to this, seeing what types they'll throw at use and what the gym leaders appearances are.

That whole web-type thing that we say the Player bouncing on hints at a bug-type gym at least. They could do some really freaky things with Dark or Ghost type gyms in 3D, which I'd love to see.

Maybe they could make dual typed Gym Leaders so that 16 types are covered after defeating the 8th gym. And if they introduced 3 more types, then the Elite 4 can be of different types and the Champion would be as usual, multi-typed.

I just rewatched it and before I hadn't seen it (darn you internet!) it definitely seems like a connection. So possibly a bug type, which I don't mind.

I'm not sure if the one with fire blasting up was a gym but that could possibly be another Gym...

Dark leader defs. I'd also like the actual gym leaders to be really... interesting. Considering it looks like it's based upon Europe maybe the gym leaders can have a lot of European things about them (not that I know European things BUT STILL) compared to the previous games that had very American-ised gym leaders.

I'll hope Ken Sugimori would design the Gym Leaders just as awesome as he did with HGSS leader. BW Gym Leaders are cool too I guess, except for that bikini-wearing-pilot. Ken Sugimori's design for characters rarely fails me except for that one.

I think the gyms should keep monotype, but then the E4 could switch it up with the dual type(since I do like the idea) and the Champion being of course really well rounded.

Also, if they don't include a dark type gym finally, I will personally find a way to rewind my entire memory of anything Pokemon from Gen 6 arrival back to before this announcement.

I'm sure by now they would have thought to put in a Dark type gym. As for the others, I think definitely bug and maybe grass and fire?

I want this generation's Gym Leaders to train a diverse range of types. The one thing I'll really crack it at, is if the first gym is a Rock Type Gym. We've already got tired of this type, and I think it's time for something fresh.

A Dark Type Gym Leader is definitely needed, no doubt, zero doubt, period, end of story. What I'm even more interested in however, is if the developers have finally understood that us gamers want more of a challenge. And not in the form of a silly Challenge Mode that's unlocked at the end of completing the main plot, (which in itself only raises trainers' pokemons' levels by 5 or so). We want a challenge straight off the bat. Meaning, we want Gym Leaders with their each, own, individual strategies.

I want so see each Gym Leader have a battling technique that complements the type of Pokemon they're using. I want to see each Gym Leader concoct a strategy to cover their type's weaknesses. I want to see each Gym Leader become smarter and stronger than the next. I want each Gym Leader to make us think, make us win by forcing us to concoct our own battle style, our own counter-strategies, not just through type adv/disadv.

Example: A Steel/Rock Type Gym Leader utilizes moves such as Rock Polish and other speed-boosting moves to help support their otherwise extremely slow Pokemon.


Also with new Gym Leaders, I want harder gym puzzles, and much better badges. Gen V's were horrible imo.

This.
I too, want Gym Leader battle more difficult and meaningful. Not just a random trainer battle with the opponent having titles. Gym Leaders having certain strategies to their would be a fresh addition. They need to do this not just for rematch, but for first battle too. At least they could make the battle against Gym Leader have level cap so we won;t breeze through by overtrained our Pokemon.

But I think this would less likely too happen, considering how Game Freak like try tos tick with old formula as possible.

I'd say psychic given that it's PINK. Ghost and dark seems less likely tbh. Although the gym does look dark-ish...

I also support the belief it's a Psychic Type Gym. Mainly because Caitlin's Elite Four room consisted of sparkles and glitter. Yet...so did Karen's so, who knows.

Judging from he video We'll be getting Fire and Bug gyms and that one with the stars says either Dark or Psychic to me. I would love for Gym 8 to be fire and gym 1 to be bug, I have always waned that.

I'm guessing that we'll be getting Bug, Grass, Dark, Fire, Rock, Steel, Fighting, Normal. Not sure on the order though.
