Black 2White 2 [Spoiler]New Gyms? Gym Speculation

Fifth Generation Are Pokémon slaves to humans? Team Plasma thinks so. Travel the Unova region and prove them wrong in Black & White, and then return two years later in Black 2 & White 2.

    I can't even begin to describe how unbelievably easy the first two gym leaders sound. Cheren's team can easily be beaten down by just your starter as long as it's at around the same level as his Pokemon. Speaking of levels, both Cheren and Homika have weaker teams than the Striaton trio and Lenora, respectively, so they're slightly weaker even in that aspect.

    Also, I think it would have made more sense to have Shizui replace Brycen as the 7th leader and have Drayden maintain his position as the 8th leader. Could Drayden as the 7th leader mean a downgraded/watered down version of his team from B/W, a la Cheren with Lenora?

    Massively disappointed. I'm hoping that the other gym leaders make things more interesting. I'd like to see more interesting Pokemon on the leader's teams. Maybe Burgh could have an Accelgor, or Shizui a Carracosta?

    I expected Drayden to be the last Gym Leader like in the original Black; why GameFreak put Shizui in as the last Gym Leader is beyond me.

    And as for the gym lineups, I can't help but wonder why Homika has an underlevelled Whirlipede (I'm guessing for difficulty reasons?).

      Hmm considering Cheren gym is in the home town (kind of explains the low levels as the Pc proably hasn't traveled far) means the player will have to do some training on the route outside of town... it'll be something different for sure...

      I'm starting to think that Cheren has a playground for his school, and that's where you battle him and any trainers he may have under him. It'd be so adorable if they were preschoolers!

        Well that would explain why they would have a battle outside, perhaps it can be a mix of pre schoolers and normal school boys and possibly teacher class trainers here and there.
        Shizui will likely have swimmers. Elesa will have the return of the beauties. Drayden-Ace and dragon tamers. Burgh- clowns again. Clay- construction workers.

          Found this picture for the badge case:



          Does not look like anyone else got visual changes according to that since everyone else seems to have the same pixel art.

          Also Burgh's team is: Level 22 Swadloon, Level 22 Dwebble, Level 24 Leavanny

          Burgh's team is awful. His original team was better. At least he had more diversity with Whirlipede.

            His team is +1 level higher than in B/W though XD

            Also Homika has Whirlipede so blame her for him losing it. XD

            Burgh is just horrible period. :c
            But I like his team better this time.

            HOMIKA YOU THIEF. But I can't wait for Shizui's reveal! <3333333333333

              So Burgh's team... Eh, not too fussed, still would of like to see a non-Unova Bug-type in his team though. I love Elesa's eye-catch. Those shades are awesome.

              And yup, Drayden looks like he's been demoted. I just hope his team's levels aren't that low, judging by the first two gym leaders and their Pokemon though I'm feeling that. I'll be fine to keep them 38-41 or maybe a tad higher to emphasize the time-skip.

              Pretty disappointed with Burgh's team.

              It's the same as in B/W but they replaced his Whirlipede with a Swadloon, probably because Homika has Whirlipede.

              Shizui being the final Gym surprised me though, and I want to point this out - this is the first time a Dragon Gym Leader isn't the last Gym. What do you think of this change?

              Cheren's team is basically a scaled-down version of Lenora's, which was a bit disappointing.

              It's not the first time. RBY, Emerald and DPPt didn't have dragon types. Giovanni had Ground, Juan had Water and Voltner had Electric. In fact Dragon was only used in the final gym in Johto.

              Also Elesa's team is Emolga & Flaaffy at Level 28 and Zebstrika at Level 30

              I WAS RIGHT

                Burgh is actually easier to take down with a Tepigs line than he was in BW...I guess I won't have much of a challenge when facing against him. They really should've gone with giving him a non Unova Pokemon. The fact that two (Cheren and Burgh) lack non Unova Pokemon while two do (Homika and Elesa (so far it's only the girls who are diversifying away from Unova...)) makes me think that perhaps half of the region will be all Unova...

                Clay's team is;

                Krokorok & Sandslash at Level 31 and Excadrill at Level 33

                Clay's team looks good, almost the same as B/W but with Sandslash replacing Palpitoad.

                Maybe this could signal Seismitoad on Shizui's team? He is the final Gym so expect him with a team of fully evolved Pokes.

                  just dislike the fact that all the gym leaders generally have only 3 pkmn on their team...

                  OK, so Skyla's team is another similarity to her old team except she now has Skarmory in place of Unfezant.

                  Let's hope Drayden and Shizui's teams don't end up bad like Burgh's.

                  Drayden's team is Druddigon and Flygon at Level 46 and Haxorus at Level 48

                  Higher than his team last time. And this time he's the 7th leader, lmfao.

                  OH COME ON. They stopped RIGHT before they got to Shizui. Hurry up people!

                  Aaand lastly, Shizui's team is Wailord and Carracosta at Level 49 and Jellicent at Level 51.

                    Also, Drayden no longer has an underleveled Haxorus! And to top it off, I love how Skyla's team got a slight buff, switching Unfezant for Skarmory.

                    Scars, she’s got her scars
                    Sometimes it starts to worry me
                    Cause lose, I don’t want to lose
                    Sight of who we are

                    Got a ways to go
                    This is still the place
                    That we all call home

                      Sweet. You breeze through the first three or four gyms and then you face the real challenge. Sounds good.
                      And btw, Elesa looks soooooo hot, lol. XD

                      I'm a silhouette, chasing rainbows on my own
                      But the more I try to move on, the more I feel alone
                      So I watch the summer stars to lead me home.

                      That is so anti-climatic. How are they suitable for a last gym leader?! idek. That sucks though, I can't use my fighting types all the way through unless Scrafty!

                      Ooh, what a level spike between the 4th/5th gyms. But I would've liked it if Skyla, Drayden or Shizui had at least 1 more Pokemon on them to make them more of a challenge.
