    I'd probably be a psychic type leader. Still a big fan of psychic types since Gen 1 where they were super broken. Alternatively, electric types.

      Thinking about my response to this question prompted me to spend a couple of hours looking up competitive strategies for a few Pokemon, so I even went and designed teams based on where I would be encountered in the League. So, the team varies a little bit depending on badge progress or if I happen to end up in the Elite Four.

      My team is Fairy, but designed to be a little diverse. Being in a gym, I envisioned the idea of any challengers having to go through a gym designed to be a space station. The gimmick would be having to go through gravity chambers whose gravity can be changed by activating switches, and there are three possible choices: Normal gravity, low gravity, or zero gravity. Most chambers start as zero gravity, meaning instead of walking from place to place, you are floating in the air, and although you can change direction, it takes time for you to change direction if you are already moving. Low gravity just allows you to make big jumps off of ledges, so often you'd need to have this setting to land on the center platform of a chamber. When you finally reach the chamber I would be at, the gravity would need to be normal gravity, and at that point the challenge can happen. I would reward the Planet Badge upon being defeated, which would be a design of a planet not exactly like Earth's, but gives the appearance of another Earth-like planet.

      As for my actual team, it does vary slightly depending on how many badges you have, but you would get this lineup battling for the 8th badge:

      Ninetales-Alola (it is cold in space, after all)
      Klefki (Steel is naturally something you would see in a space station)
      Clefable (said to have come from space)
      Togekiss (by changing the gravity, you're in the air longer, and this Pokemon is a master of the air)
      Gardevoir (complete with Gardevoirite)
      Azumarill (usually every gym leader has their signature Pokemon, this one would be mine)

      If I were a gym leader, I'd specialise in dark type, but the team itself shall unusually also consist of other pokemon, in the style of Volkner owning an octillery and ambipom in gen 4. The badge will be the Crack badge, and the gym will exhibit structures of glass, crystals and glitter, while requiring trainers to use the bicycle to cross the crevasses.

      The gym will be the 6th or 7th gym and the pokemon team is:
      Krookodile, bisharp, mandibuzz, whiscash and venomoth.

          Difficult choice between 2 types, Ice & Fire.

          Ice-type gym:

          Team: Dewgong, Jynx, Sealeo and Weavile

          Team (Rematch): Lapras, Abomasnow, Glaceon, Alolan Ninetales, Walrein and Articuno

          Badge: A simple shiny snowflake that gives off a little bit of heat

          Gym design: Depending if it's the first match or the rematch. For the first match the gym would be inside a huge ice cave with a lake inside it. For the rematch you have to go through the ice cave to enter a secret frozen forest which has a lake as well.

          Fire-type gym:

          Team: Growlithe, Houndoor, Charmeleon and Magmar

          Team (Rematch): Magmar, Charizard, Infernape, Houndoom, Alolan Marowak and Arcanine

          Badge: A chunk of molten lava that looks like a volcano

          Gym design: A simple basic gym building with nothing fancy. It is what it is. Straightforward.

          Even though it's not one of my favorite types, I would likely be a Water type Gym Leader if I was given the opportunity. There's so much I could do with a team, especially with all of the combinations of secondary types available to me.

          If I could have my top 3 picks, I would like to feature Azumarill, Slowking, and Empoleon on my team, with any mix of Lanturn, Carracosta, Crawdaunt, Kingdra, Ludicolo, Lapras, or Poliwrath as my supporting party members.

          My first and obvious choice would be Fairy (Sylveon, Spritzee, and Comfey probably! I imagine myself as an early gym leader lol), but if I had to pick something else it would probably be Dark! Pokémon like Inkay and Tyranitar are always personal favorites. :)

            I'll definitely run a Dark type Gym with Weavile as my signature Pokémon.
            My other Pokémon: Hydreigon, Sableye, Houndoom (Mega), Honchkrow, Mega Gyarados, Drapion, Scrafty, Absol (Mega).
            I will also often use one of these too: Gengar (Mega), Chandelure, Luxray, Venomoth, Noctowl.

            Gym rules:
            • Everyone must use a fully Dark team with the possibility to only bring one non-Dark Pokémon.
            • Trainers should bring 3 to 6 Pokémon but only 3 Pokémon can be called to the battle, so that adds some strategy to the Pokémon picks.
            • Gym challengers make the first pick so I will have the advantage at the start of the battle to counter them!

            Also, the gym is open for challengers only during the night.

              I'd have a Bird type Gym and battle trainers with one Missingno.

              Just so that when they beat me I won't have a badge to give them because it's missing. Saves money that way, not that I need to save money.

              I'd be a flying type gym leader if I could! I'd be in the late game so I could use some more diverse flying types (rather than just those that appear early in-game) such as Skarmory, Aerodactyl, Xatu, Drifblim, Braviary etc. Haven't really figured out a proper team but it would be something like that. :D

                      Nowadays I don't have a clear favorite type, but I guess I'd pick Flying. I'm going to assume the Unova Dex from B/W2 since those games are my favorites. I'll select different team rosters depending on when you'd battle me.

                      Gym 1: Pidove lv 13, Zubat lv 14
                      Gym 2: Tranquill lv 21, Gligar lv 21, Golbat lv 22
                      Gym 3: Tranquill lv 25, Gligar lv 25, Golbat lv 27
                      Gym 4: Tranquill lv 28, Gligar lv 28, Tropius lv 29, Crobat lv 31
                      Gym 5: Unfezant lv 32, Gligar lv 32, Tropius lv 32, Crobat lv 34
                      Gym 6: Unfezant lv 36, Gligar lv 36, Tropius lv 37, Skarmory lv 37, Crobat lv 39
                      Gym 7: Unfezant lv 41, Gliscor lv 42, Tropius lv 42, Skarmory lv 42, Crobat lv 44
                      Gym 8: Gliscor lv 48, Tropius lv 48, Skarmory lv 48, Braviary lv 48, Crobat lv 50

                      Post-League rematch 1: Gliscor lv 57, Tropius lv 57, Skarmory lv 58, Braviary lv 58, Yanmega lv 59, Crobat lv 60
                      Post-League rematch 2: Gliscor lv 66, Tropius lv 66, Skarmory lv 68, Braviary lv 68, Yanmega lv 68, Crobat lv 70
                      Post-League rematch 3: Gliscor lv 75, Tropius lv 75, Skarmory lv 77, Braviary lv 77, Yanmega lv 77, Crobat lv 80

                        A friend of mine and I have had this discussion multiple times. We'd likely have a poison/dark type themed double battle style gym.

                        My team would be:
                        -Houndoom
                        -Stuntank
                        -Zoroark

                        Their team would be:
                        -Alolan Muk
                        -Swalot
                        -Nidoking

                          I’ve always had the idea of a dual-type gym, where all of my Pokemon are one of two types (or both) but not necessarily the same dual-type combo, if that makes sense...

                          So, I’d have an Ice/Fairy gym as those are my 2 favorite types. My team would likely consist of:
                          Sylveon (Fairy)
                          Dedenne (Electric/Fairy)
                          Glaceon (Ice)
                          Mamoswine (Ice/Ground)
                          and my ace Pokemon...

                          Alolan Ninetales (Ice/Fairy)

                          Unfortunately most of the team could probably be taken out fairly effortlessly by steel types, but I do still really like the idea of a dual type gym! I’d give out the Aurora Badge to winners and the TM for Ice Beam.

                          I’d probably be a Dark type leader.

                          I’d most likely use Umbreon, Honchkrow, Houndoom, Weavile, Tyranitar, and Sableye.

                              Gymleader: Dark

                              Gym inside: Darkness, trainers must think on how to find the Gym leader in complete darkness, but to do that they have to battle 7 trainers, they will appear when you bump against them, when the last trainer has been defeated you will find the Gym leader in an unexpected place.

                              Gym leader will ask first the trainer on how many pokemon he wants to use. If the trainer wants to use 3 pokemon, the Gym leader will also use 3 pokemon being these >

                              First: Bisharp with moves to counter type weakness.
                              Second: Houndoom similiar like Bisharp.

                              Third will be something unexpected.

                                I mean, they let Tobias in that thang with dang near a team full of them....

                                Dragon

                                Rewarding to train, because they start out semi-useless, but by the 2nd evolution you think "Ok, I got something here."

                                1) Hydreigon

                                2) Salamence

                                3) Garchomp

                                4) Kommo-o

                                5) Haxorus

                                6) of course I throw the OG out last, Dragonite.

                                I would be Normal-Type Gym Leader. It would be about 4th Gym and first really challenging. I would use 2 teams. One for "fast" attackers and one for slowly bulk Pokémon.

                                My "fast" team would be:


                                And slow team:
