I've always found this to be a very interesting point. I have no idea why they've never had a Dark type gym leader, and I really think they're really overdue for one. It's the only type that has never had a gym dedicated (despite having more than one Elite Four member using it), but I see no reason for this. A Dark type gym could easily be made for the start of the game (things like Poochyena, Purrlion, Sableye) or could fit nicely into a later on gym (Pokemon such as Weavile, Spiritomb, Scrafty) so there's no real reason not to have one imo. I certainly hope there will be one in Gen VI! Or even later in Gen V; we don't know the full details for B2W2 yet :3
