My initials are TS - therefore, I would be a Psychic type Gym Leader in Saffron City. Sabrina WHOMST?
I think my team would be...maybe the below?
I know I'd at least have the first 3 Pokémon. Jynx is one of my favorites, and I really loved using both Alolan Raichu and Gardevoir when I played Gen 7 and 6 respectively. I can't say I've ever used Malamar or Exeggutor, but I think they look cool. If we're being honest - the first 3 would probably be my team on the player's first playthrough, and then I would add Malamar and Exeggutor for the post E4 rematch. I'd much rather be a Ghost Type gym leader tho
If I absolutely had to be in Kanto, I'd say Saffron would actually be my preference given the fact that it's literally in the center of like everything. It'd be pretty convenient as far as locations go. If I could choose anywhere else in the Pokémon world to have a gym be, I'd maybe go with Hearthome City in Sinnoh. I love Sinnoh, and really like Hearthome.
I'm a Normal type leader in Laverre City :) I think that is a bit boring maybe haha but Normal types can be really cute and cool, and at least they won't disrupt the pretty environment there. I'd probably have a theme to strive towards balance, but better than Norman did lolol. Balance between nature and humans etc. And between Normal type and secondary types ;D Oh, the gym could be in the big tree with lots of actual physical balancing needed lol.
My team... Could be...
Pyroar-F, Bewear, Pidgeot, Wigglytuff, Heliolisk, Diggersby! Naturally I wouldn't always use all of them in every gym battle. It would depend on my opponents :3 and how good I gauge their ability to balance is!
I'd be aaaaa Psychic type gym leader in Opelucid City!
My team would be .. I guess I'd have to use at least a Unovan Pokemon so
I mean, at least I get Mega Metagross <3 Which would be my only requirement in my team ahahdalkdkfsbja I have no idea what theme I'd go for other than "hey these Pokemon look pretty cool". For the first run I'd probably do Reuniclus, Sigilyph, and Gallade, and add the others post game.
If I had to choose what type I'd be though, it would most likely either be Steel/Psychic/Fairy, and would be somewhere in Sinnoh. Sunyshore, probably! Or I can be a non type leader like Blue and just chill in Viridian. I like that too.
...Well, at least it's Sinnoh! And flying give me some crossover with lots of different types. I'll just have a cute gym with Pokemon that would be useless if they knew "Fly". So Hoppip, Drifloon, Combee, etc. 8)
As a JP I got Psychic type in Pewter City.
Psychic is my second (or third???) fave type in the series, so I don't actually have a problem with it. Regarding Pewter City though, I gotta say I'm not that much of a Kanto fan except for Sabrina, so Pewter is a little... meh for me.
Now, my team would be as follows:
For the first match.
For the post-E4 match
To be fair I would've preferred Poison type since it's my favorite type, but as I already said Psychic is one of my faves as well.
I'm JP as well, so Psychic in Pewter City. I'm not really a fan neither of Psychic-types or Kanto, so this isn't really a YAY moment for me. But I think I would be 1st Gym Leader for new trainers to encounter, so I'll make the battle really memorable.
Hmm a Fairy Type Gym in Goldenrod. Fairy eat your heart out I think I'd easily beat Whitney in terms of giving people nightmares as Clefairy won't be so easy this time around. I'd also use Mawile for those thinking Steel or Poison would easily sweep me and finish my trio off with Sylveon. Rematch would add Alolan Ninetales, Mimikyu and Gardevoir. Haven't decided if Mawile or Gardevoir should Mega Evolve(leaning Mawile).
