    You can give the Gym Leaders different Pokemon. An explanation that I've seen the fandom give is that the GLs do have different Pokemon, and they battle with certain Pokemon based on the level of the challenging trainer. Since it's figured that not every trainer follows the same path that's shown in the games/anime, it's figured that the GLs expect this and have Pokemon ready to fight any trainer at any level.

    That really doesn't answer your question, but it does show that people can accept the GLs having different Pokemon than just the ones shown in the games. In fact, having different teams makes sense for the GLs. Otherwise, their Pokemon would get tired from being in constant battles, so it's would make sense for them to switch around their teams.
