He could be a professional Skydiver/Hang Glider + Gym Leader?

I really really really do hope they'll make a Dark-type gym leader. 'Cause they have never made a Dark-type gym leader before and I would really love it if they do.

But if they don't, I'd be a little disappointed. :x

I hope they continue what they did in Pokemon Black 2 and White 2 and give the gym leaders character and personality, and make them do more than just battle you. I want them to actually to have a place in the story line.

The room with chimney cries Normal type to me with it's household look and all. Maybe the gym leader is a cook or something home education related.

I don't think the vine place is a gym but a new terrain or at least I hope so as I'll love new terking styles.

I want it to be as this (not in any particular order):

Normal
Ghost
Psychic
Dark
Poison
Steel
Ground
Flying

which are all types that need more gyms (or in the case of Dark, one)

E4:
Fire
Electric
Grass
Water
Champ: Dark (Johto and Unova (2) had a dragon champ and a dragon gym leader, while Hoenn had a Water champ (E) and a water gym leader in two of those three it's been the 8th gym)

I have a bad feeling we wont get a Dark type Gym and instead we'll be treated to another Dark E4 member.

I'm hoping we have a Bug gym leader who presents you with the 7th or 8th badge. I'm fairly certain we've never had a Bug leader higher than the 3rd badge.

Nica we already have a pilot gym leader! I think Skyla is enough, another one would be overkill.

I'm glad to see there appears to be a bug type gym! I'd want it to be the eighth gym though, since it could show how strong bug types are, and would be a really fun and interesting final dream. As for other gym types, I definitely want a dark type gym. Too be honest, the gym where we see the female MC standing looks to me like it could be dark. Especially with the gif - dark types are about illusions and tricks, right? So the gym is constantly changing, and it makes it difficult to navigate, with trainers popping out everywhere - seems incredibly fun to me! :D

I'd also love to see another poison type gym! With all the great types dual typed with poison, it could be interesting, and a really fun gym if they went creative with it. I know we just had Roxie, but whatever! And another steel type gym would be fun! And I love normal pokemon, so another normal type gym would rock!

Can't wait.

I wanna see Grass and Bug type Gyms at higher levels. None of them have made it that high up in the Gyms.

Also we need Steel, Dark, Ghost and Poison type gyms. They aren't very commonly used compared to most.

It would be nice to see Grass/Water type have a shine at the Elite Four.
Still waiting on that Dark Gym, GameFreak!

I'm not sure whether the fire thingy mo gig is a E4 room, or a Gym.

But Fire is deffo up in there.

Yeah Roxie was a disappointment...we need a better poison gym leader. Though what would their theme be? We had two ninjas (a clan?) and a poison metal(?) star. I guess we could have a sewage worker...
For Bug they could be a semstress. Hope she's a female whose name is a pun on Arachne, the mother of all spiders in greek myth.

What if a gym leader is one of your family members? We haven't fought one of those since RSE~

well, I know this may seem really out there, how about having 17 gyms, one for each type. I know its probably not going to happen but it would change the game play a bit.

What I would like to see most is Dark Type gym as one most of the fans. An immediate rival as gym leader would be new, and a nice change of pace imo.

Maybe a Chemist that experiments with Chemicals that could be termed "poisonous". Because I always felt that when I ran into a Chemist/Scientist character like in RBY FRLG that they would have something like a Koffing/Weezing or a Grimer/Muk.

Either the regional dex would have to be expansive like BW2 with 300 or this would have to include multiple regions. And seeing as all the past regions aren't in 3D like this current one I don't see them going back and making it fit into the 3D like they currently have it. It would be nice though.

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?
I feel like they might do a dark type gym, this place reminds me of France which for some reason makes me think lots of dark types and steel types idk why xD

The gym leaders would probably be the most unused types but what could the rival be?

As you see through this video, it showed a web-like trampoline when the male protagonist falls down. But what kind of gyms should be included? Do you think that a Dark gym should be implemented? What should these gyms look like anyway? Share your ideas.

I liked the ideas that they put in Gen IV and Gen V with the obstacle courses. I do hope a Dark Gym will finally come. We got enough Dark type Pokemon to make a whole gym based out of it

Dark Type Pokemon Gym. PLEASE. It's been bugging me forever.
Anyway, one thing I would really like to be addressed is that Gyms seem sort of like McGuffins in the plot. Obviously, they drive the plot, but I feel like we've NEVER had any Gym that has had too much thought put into it, which is a shame in my opinion. I don't know exactly what I'd want but I do know I find all the current Gyms to be poor and not very exciting to play through.

This is just my opinion, of course! I'm pretty sure most people are content with the Gyms, and it's not like it's a huge issue anyway.

Already covered by this existing thread, so merged.

I also agree that a Dark type gym would be nice to see finally.

I'm really hoping for a Steampunk-themed electric or steel gym. I'm also holding out for the long-awaited Dark-type Gym because that would be amazing.

I'm personally a big sucker for cool-named gym Leaders, and I've been brainstorming names for a while. Such as Colleen for a bug type leader because it sounds like "colony", or Aria for a female flying-type leader. And Stella for a steel type leader. And a bunch of other stuff <3

We Need a dark gym and a fire gym also diversity with the pokemon for example if there isn't enough new electric types in the gen use old pokemon I don't wanna see another volkner situation that forced him to have to use other types also I hate when gym leaders have copies of pokemon

These are my thoughts/theories/hopes on the gym leaders, in no particular order:
  • Poison (seriously, there should be more of these)
  • Fighting
  • Bug (the one with webs hints at it)
  • Fire (the one with two fire columns. Its been a while since we had a fire-gym, hasn't it?)
  • Dark (Finally!)
  • Grass
  • Ground (Maybe to showcase a new Eeveelution?)
  • Supposed new type (which is a rumor I've seen floating around on the internet)
