Anyway I think there hasn't been a Dark type gym leader since we haven't had enough Dark-types to build a decent gym leader. Several years ago I made up a Dark-type gym leader and right around the time Gen 3 came out and I could come up with a good time.
Now that we have more Dark types I see us having a Dark type specialist in gen 6 or in B2W2 cause who knows. They might change all the gym leaders or we'll have the same ones plus the two new ones.
Lol sorry, I just thought it was a very valid topic that needs discussing x] But yeah, I think there probably would be enough to build a team around? In Gen I there was only one Ghost type family and one Dragon type family, yet they had Elite Four trainers dedicated to just them, so I see no reason why they can't do it for a Dark gym x] Plus they've had two Dark Elite Four members, so there must be enough for them to build a team too? I think an ideal team for a dark gym leader would be made of (for the weaker gyms) Poochyena, Sneasel, Purrlion and Sableye, or (for the stronger gyms) Spiritomb, Weavile, Scrafty, Umbreon, Houndoom, that kind of stuff. :3 I reckon they could build a good team pretty easily with all the Pokemon available, so its about time they did! Or maybe Dark Pokemon are just too good and need to be reserved for the Elite Four ;]
