    Let's say you were privilaged to be a Pokemon leader, either a Gym Leader, a member of the Elite Four, and a Pokemon Champion for your league. What would you be?
    I personally thought about being a high level [8th] Gym, it would seem fun. But I would prefer to play at the best. So if I had a choice, I'd like to be a Pokemon Champion (like probably most). Except, this would be in a setting with A LOT more trainers, before the 1st gym, between the gyms, after the 8th gym, and throughout the world. Most games have more story after the Elite Four. In this, the Elite Four and Champion are the end, leaving much more story in between.
    I say all this to have an excuse for high level Pokemon:

    Let me just create a quick form~

    Name: Jobrjo
    Rank: Pokemon League Champion
    Region: Kanto
    Type: Flying - but there's a catch. Most Pokemon leaders can be easily dealt with, seeing how they have specific types and you can find weknesses. Well, not the case here. They would all be dual-types, giving me an upper hand.
    Pokemon: I haven't narrowed it down yet, but it would be 6 of the following:
    Spoiler:

    Pigeot
    Fearow
    Dodrio
    Zapdos
    Articuno
    Moltres
    Dragonite
    Togetic
    Xatu
    Jumpluff
    Murkrow
    Skarmory
    Gyarados
    Aerodactly
    Crobat

    Either: Togetic, Pidgeot, Fearow, Dodrio, Zapdos, Articuno
    Or: Aerodactyl, Crobat, Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, Dragonite.
    But both of the teams are subject to change. I'm leaning towards the 2nd though.
    I haven't decided all the moves yet, but I will.
    Also, all will be level 100. That's why it would be so late in the game. (The Elite Four would have level 90s.) This would have a long story, with plenty of trainers and stuff to do for experiance.
    Notes: So basically, I'm the final trainer in the game, meant to test the ability of the Trainer. However, because of my difficulty, there would be an option to fully heal up before battling me, sorta like a mini-Pokemon Center. A box is also there to allow them to get different Pokemon. It's only fair, seeing as I'll have 6 level 100s. But I'm not worried if they bring Eletric, Ice, or Rock types. While I haven't decided all 6, I'll have Pokemon that have better resistance to such, such as Zapdos, Articuno, and Aerodactly. Another reason I would have level 100s, is because I hope they would too, or at least close. So instead of it being "I have higher levels", it's "I have more skill" for whoever wins. Having such high levels would also prove me as a Champion, not just some high level Gym Leader or something.
    Also, rather important: This is in a Generation III setting. So it'd be Generation III moves
    (and Pokemon, but you can trade with other Generation III) particuarly Kanto. (The only Pokemon game I have is Fire Red {})

    So, your turn. If you could be a Pokemon leader, what would you be?
    Here's a few things we could use for reference, if your confused
    http://sosbrigade.forummotion.com/t1532-if-you-could-be-a-new-gym-leader-what-would-you-be

    http://bmgf.bulbagarden.net/f313/if-you-could-gym-leader-26660/
    And of course, you can be as detailed as you wish, from Rank, to Type, to Pokemon, to Levels, to Moves, to anything else

    Oh ghad, I used to go crazy with being a pretend gym leader when I was younger, both in games and with my imagination.

    I'm not going to go into too much detail, but I would always be either an Ice or a Water type gym leader (Kinda based after Lorelei/Prima... only a guy). My main Pokemon was always Vaporeon, and the rest of my team was comprised of various ice/water types with the exception of a Dragonite every now and then.
    I wish I had some of my old doodles from when I was younger, because I would actually draw out the gyms/puzzles as well as the badge.

    Uh, most flying types except for one are dual types.

    But, I would probably be a...idk. Maybe Water-type trainer? My team would be Jellicent(f), of course, Gorebyss, Milotic, and Alomomola (make them ALL pink!). The prize for beating me would be TM45 Attract. c:

      I used to be a "Gym Leader" in a competitive battling league/forum and I was Flying. But the rules there were that only 4 (or more) of the 6 Pokes had to be part Flying. In the short time that the league existed, I was 8 for 8 in defeating challengers (who could bring any Pokes they wanted to battle me).

      So I would be an Elite 4 member, similar to Lance in the games where not all Pokemon followed one type, but Flying would be a common theme like Dragon was for Lance.

      Name: Taco
      Theme: Flying

      Swampert
      Skarmory
      Gyarados
      Salamence
      Heatran
      Honchcrow


      So Swampert (lead) and Heatran are the non-flyings, which play very well for people who think they can run in with a few Ice/Electric pokes. Swampert is immune to Electric, so is a nice switch in from Gyarados. Heatran resists Ice by 1/4 and would be a great switch in from Skarmory predicting a fire attack.

      But Honchcrow is the signature Poke, his name is Lenny, and he is a boss.

        Oh man I would totally be a Fire gym leader! I love Fire types they are my absolute favorite next to Fighting types. I would probably be upper level because that's where all the good Fire types are.
        My party would probably consist of a Ninetales, Arcanine, Chandeleur, Flareon, Charizard, and a Houndoom. The prize for beating me would be TM 61, Will-o-Wisp!

          I would be an 8th gym leader but i would be different to normal leaders as I would have an assortment of pokemon. They would be Charizard(lead), Pidgeot(3rd), Heracross(2nd) and my best pokemon would be my kick ass Kingler.

          I just will be a Steel-Type leader, like i always been for my friends...
          I had a Excadrill, Metagross, Aggron, Magnezone and a Empoleon...
          It was a kick-ass team.

          Great Question,
          I would love to be a bonus, hidden 9th Gym leader, located on a secret Island, like New Moon Island, that requires either a event ticket of some kind to reach or that is only accessible on one calender day of the year and then disappears into the mist like Brigadoon (You youngsters may have to Google that reference) It would have a painfully hard mini game first then an all level 100 battle againts my elite six.

          Name: Zeus
          Type: Multitype
          Moves: Dark, Dragon & Fighting

          Gen IV Sinnoh

          Houndoom
          Aggron
          Toxicroak
          Blastoise
          Lickilicky
          Salamence



          Or

          Gen V Unova

          Hydriegon
          Excadrill
          Krookodile
          Beartic
          Braviary
          Emboar



          Then Some big dollar reward Item like the Relic Crown worth $500,000 as the prize for victory.

          Zeus

                I'd be a Gym Leader. That sounds more fun anyway. Champions don't battle many people if you think about it. They take a few challengers here and there, but that's it. The Elite Four is the same way. As a Gym Leader, I'd get quite a few battles per day so I'd imagine I'd enjoy myself more. Specifically, I'd be the second or third Gym Leader.

                I would probably specialize in Steel-types, because that's how I roll. My team would be an Aron, a Metang, and a Scizor. The prize for beating me would be TM Dig.

                I'd be either a Champion or an eighth Gym Leader, since in the past those have been the two positions that have hosted trainers with diverse teams. I can't picture myself just using one type of Pokemon - even the game manual advises against that xD

                So yeah, I'd field a type diverse team identical to my OC trainer Lisa's team: Persian, Metagross, Walrein, Flygon, Jolteon, and Weezing.

                    I'd be a fire-type Gym leader. I have personally preferred Fire types to most other pokemon in the game. They're rare, and it most cases look effing awesome. I guess my obsession started with Charizard. I'd probably use mainly gen 2 pokemon. I'm partial to anything beyond that.

                      Well, I decided a team of 6: Togetic, Pidgeot, Fearow, Dodrio, Zapdos, Articuno.
                      And my 2nd team idea: Aerodactyl, Crobat, Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, Dragonite.
                      Either of those would be so awesome :D
                      Haven't decided all moves though. Yet I specifically chose the 1st group because of the moves they can learn. They have many that I approve of for them. Thoughts on that team? While the 2nd I chose because they are simply poweful Pokemon, and also have great movepools. Thoughts on that team?

                        I would have to be normal type gym leader, quite early on in the game; amounts to my skill. 1 Pure Normal type from all generations.
                        Team: Munchlax, Jigglypuff, Aipom, Slakoth and Audino.
                        Location: Something unique; not in a town, on a route. You battle me to get through to the next area, without knowing I'm the gym leader.

                                  I would love to be a fire gym leader as well!

                                  unlike other gym leaders, I would have a shiny Ninetales in my party, and use a semi-sunny day team. Remember that puzzle from the Ocarina of Time where you had to move around stone blocks with sunshines on them into the light? combine that with mirrors, and that would be my ideal gym puzzle. My gym would be located inside of an ancient ruin, with similarities to the Stonehenge (ex: the light, and positions). My gym prize would be the TM 11 Sunny Day!!

                                  Team:

                                  Shiny Ninetales
                                  Arcanine
                                  Chandelure
                                  Blaziken

                                    Hum interesting. As I've said to my RL friends, I'm (or gonna be) a Draconic Master. I'd be like gym leader #8 or an elite four member, using draconic pokés to destroy and burn and... well. Anyway, I'd say that if a trainer faced me for the first time, I'd be using -Kingdra lvl 45 -Haxorus lvl 52 -Flygon lvl 47
                                    -Altaria lvl 44 -Charizard lvl 48 -Gyarados lvl 50

                                    The gym would be divided in 2 sections, the first one depicting a somber cave with dragon bones to decorate and you have to use strenght to move boulders and advance thorough. After that you'd have to go one floor up and appear in a puzzle room filled with fire breathing pokedragon statues that wont let you advance unless you press the corresponding switch( and face my minions while trying to so buahahah).

                                    As a reward I'd give the victor TM 02 Dragon Claw. Also, I'd play a role later on the game helping the player to face *insert game version evil team here* and unblocking some area.

                                        I would be the first gym leader.. after reading some of the stuff on here, it's kinda changed my opinion. I've always thought I'd want to be champion, because you get to have all the buffed up pokemon, but like it's been said, you'd have a select few challengers.
                                        I'd probably go ghost with,

                                        Level 9
                                        Rollout, Astonish, Pound, Thief

                                        Level 7
                                        Scratch, Leer, Shadow Claw
                                        I'd set up my gym to be super dim, with a sort of purple glowing light about it. There would be no trainers, just wild pokemon, and the challenge would be trying to get to the right door while the floor moves under you. If you manage to make it to the correct door, you move on scott free, but if you go to the wrong one, you have to make your way through a room with instanced encounters involving a few wild pokemon.

                                        Honestly, I'd probably just be an assistant trainer in a gym and even then I'd only show up sometimes and get kicked out for lack of attendance. XD; Although I think it would be really awesome to be a trainer in Erika's gym because I'd start all my battles saying "Hi, I'm Erica. Are you challenging me?" and never hint that I wasn't the actual gym leader until they beat my Cherrim/Whimsicott team really easily and I'd act all confused when they ask for their badge. 8D

                                        That sounds a lot more appealing to me than being a gym leader especially since, because of Cherrim, I'd have to be a grass gym leader and there's already an Erika grass gym leader even if she can't spell her name right fffffff. But assuming there wasn't, my team would be:

                                        - Whimsicott
                                        - Cherrim
                                        - Carnivine
                                        - Cherrim

                                        And maybe a Shroomish to bug my roommate because I always call him one. My gym would be pretty straight-forward. If I had to have an obstacle in it, I imagine it would be a quiz one like in Blaine's gym. I always liked those kinds. So if you didn't want to fight all my assistant trainers, you could be smart and get through that way. (Or maybe I'd just have people draw Cherrim all over the walls or something. I dunno!) The gym itself would honestly be pretty standard grass-type fare with lots of greenery for the Pokemon to play around in. (I'd just have one room to myself with shaded blinds and stay in there until challengers showed up. Eww, outdoors and sunlight!) I guess I'd probably be like the fourth gym leader since my Pokemon would all be around level 30? I'd at least be past 25 with two Cherrim. I wouldn't want to be a later gym leader because then I'd have to see my Cherrim get trampled by like... giant Charizard-level Pokemon. ;_; No thanks.

                                        At this point, I'm probably better off just invading Celadon City and taking Erika's gym anyway. (Also I didn't even consider being an E4/champion because there's no way I'd get away with having Cherrim on my team if that was my rank. XD)
