What do you think are the requirements to be a Gym Leader?
bribes It seems that you need to really know how to command your Pokémon, how to raise them, and more than anything how to go up against types that your team is weak to. It doesn't really matter how strong your team is considering there needs to be gyms for the weaker trainers to fight and some to test the stronger trainers, but you need to be able to hold your own against any Pokémon of the level you're expecting to fight. For example a Rock type gym leader needs to have decent strategies for dealing with Water, Grass, Fighting, Ground & Steel types, all whilst ensuring their Pokémon can still hit hard and do some very formidable fighting. You also need to be able to adapt to any situation and cope with it in the right way, or you're not going to do well as a gym leader at all. Alongside being able to connect with your Pokémon and everything mentioned above, these are the qualities that are required to become a gym leader in my opinion.
