Honestly, I would be a Normal-Type Gym Leader. However, all of my Pokemon would be Ditto, so the type would vary. That way, my Ditto would truly challenge the challenger as they would force them to battle against an exact copy of what they've been training.

I know Ditto aren't exactly the strongest Pokemon out there, but hey, once you see a Gym Leader bring one out then you know you've got to change your battle plan up a bit.
Why can't I just be me?

I'd be a Dark-gym leader with Krookodile, Houndoom, Drapion, and Sharpedo.

Picking a type is such a hard decision. I would choose Water. It is leaps and bounds my favorite type.

The strongest Pokemon I would have would be Sharpedo.
The two medium leveled Pokemon would be Walrein and Vaporeon.
Then my three lower leveled Pokemon would be Slowking, Whiscash, and Poliwrath.

I'd have the Scurvy Badge and the TM I would give out would be Swagger. Just so you can get your swag. Bwaha

Dark is my favorite type, so I'd probably go with that. My team would be:


In the unlikely event that I didn't go with Dark, I would definitely choose Psychic. My team would be:

Name: Leif (because it sounds like leaf)
Type: Grass
Puzzle: A gym set in the trees where you have to traverse a maze by swinging on vines.
Badge: Sap Badge
Gym: 8th
TM: Giga Drain
Once completing my maze: "By completing the maze and beating my students you have reached your final step before the elite four. Prepare yourself trainer, for a battle you won't soon forget!"
1st time taking damage: "An interesting choice, I see I might have to change my strategy with you."
Last pokemon: "It's been too long since I've been challenged like this! Prepare yourself for the pride and joy of my team!"
When I lose: "I gave it all I had, but it wasn't enough. You are indeed a very strong trainer worthy of challenging the elite four and I take great pride in awarding you the Sap Badge for your victory."

I always imagined myself as a Gym Leader that does only Double Team battles. Not only that, the pokemon I use together will always be the same pokemon species but with completely different move sets and abilities.

Game wise, it won't be that awesome but anime wise...IT WILL BE FUN AND EPIC!

Like the sprites you see here?
Want a custom one of your very own?

I'd definitely be a Fire-type Gym Leader; I love the type for what it is! Chances are you'd find Gym Leader Aurora giving out the Incendiary Badge.

The team I'd use would be something along the lines of:
• Emboar (Fire / Fighting)
• Houndoom (Fire / Dark)
• Darmanitan (Fire)
• Chandelure (Ghost / Fire)

Hmm...I'd either be a dragon, fighting or water gym...

Dragonite, Gyarados, Flygon, Charizard, Aerodactyl, Kingdra

Obviously this'd have to be an 8th gym because dragons. And I'd do the typical thing of half my team not actually being dragon-type. Much as I like Salamence, I'd only have one pseudo, Dragonite.

Blaziken, Poliwrath, Breloom, Hitmontop, Hitmonchan, Hitmonlee

No Guard Machamp just seems a cliché tbh.

Politoed, Poliwrath, Ludicolo, Buizel (because fu Floatzel!), Lanturn, Gyarados

Yup, I'd genuinely have an unevolved pokémon in my team as I dislike Floatzel that much. Although maybe swap it for a Swampert / Empoleon.

And yes, I genuinely wouldn't use any Gen V pokémon. Much as I appreciate them, I have more than enough favourites from Gen I-IV so, meh.
