    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 would like to be a Fire Type Gym Leader.

                  With this Pokemon at hand. (I think I'll just be an early Gym Leader.)

                  Growlithe x2

                  Something like that should do. :3

                    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?

                    Come on down to DD's Sprite Shop~!

                    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)

                            Why: Because every Electric type Pokemon is awesome and has lots of assets in battle.

                            My badge would be a thunderbolt against a cloud, called the Thunder Badge. AWSM, right??

                                Waaaay to many cool typed to chose from, but here it goes:

                                Type: Ghost

                                Why: Ghost Pokemon are mysterious and deceiving, they can use various strategies to defeat their opponents, and a ghost-themed gym would look awesome!!

                                  I would be a Steel-type gym leader .

                                  Town: Slate port city

                                  Badge given out: Perseverance Badge

                                  TM given out: Iron Tail

                                  Design: My gym would only have 2 trainers and I but they would have a full pokemon team. To get to me you would have to beat them both The trainers would be Ace class.

                                  Pokemon team

                                    Normal-type because this is my nr1, most of my favourite Pokemons are Normal-types.

                                      I want to be a fire type gym leader. I love fire types, I love watching flames and fire attacks are powerful.

                                      My team would consist: Ninetales, Charizard, Typhlosion, Magmortar, Flareon, Volcarona

                                        I think I'd Gym Leader Draz!

                                        Type: Dragon

                                        Line-up: Deino - Gabite x 2 - Flygon - Haxorus - Hydreigon (Final Gym Leader)

                                        What is this Pokémon's type?
                                        Only she knows, and it'll stay that way for a long time.

                                        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.

                                        I would definitely be a Dark-type gym leader, I just love them :3

                                        My team would consist of;
                                        -Houndour (cutenessfactor)

                                        Yeah, sorry Houndoom, just no.
