I don't have a favorite.
My least favorite is Marlon. I find him to be incredibly annoying.

After you get past the dialogue, Marlon's pretty cool.

I hate Cheren though, always have. Doesn't help that he uses like the most generic Pokemon ever.

My favorites are Drayden and Cheren.
Cheren: Because he's very...well...there. He helps you a lot in stopping Team Plasma, and though I hated him in B/W, he's one of my favorite Gym Leaders in BW2.

Drayden: He seems very down-to-earth...and he set up one heck of an epic gym! It was fun to battle him as well!
My Chainsaw Meowth is currently missing! If you have a lead or think you know something, PLEASE PM ME! I am desperately searching, and I dread the possibility that I may never find him...
On a side note, if anybody can answer the following question right, then they get a mystery prize! *Must have a Gen V game to claim prize*
Question: What the heck did Jinora do in the finale?! I don't get it! I know 90% of you won't know what I'm talking about, but I need an answer!

Roxie and Skyla are pretty cool! Roxie's in a band and she's really spunky! Skyla is really fun and has awesome gym puzzles!

My least favorite, I'd have to say Marlon. For the final gym leader, he was just too easy. I guess that fits his laid-back personality, but I wish he put up more of a challenge. I mean, I like his personality, and his gym puzzle is neat, but as an actual gym leader, I don't care for him that much.

Roxie's my favorite because she's the easiest gym leader to fight and the rock concert aspect of her gym.

Cheren and Drayden are my least favorite gym leaders. Cheren because he's the hardest first gym leader in the series (since i was doing a generation run and did not want to use Riolu since everyone was using that pokemon) Drayden mostly because you don't have a good ice or dragon type to deal with his dragons (also his trainers in the gym are hard to fight)
I don't calculate stat values, I don't breed my way to perfection, and I don't care about natures. I catch my Pokemon the way they are, and treat them like individuals instead of brainless drones. If you use this philosophy, copy & paste this into your signature.

My favorite is definitely Marlon! He's right up there with Sabrina in terms of all time favorites now. Elesa is probably my 2nd favorite, but Roxie is up there too. My least favorite is probably Clay.

Roxie is definitively my favourite Gym Leader. I love Rock and as you can tell from my username, I play bass. And Venipede might be my favourite bug type, so the fact that her bass is styled after one just made me love her.

Since I'm a huge metal fan, and like others mentioned, my favorite gym is with Roxie! She rocks. Every time I play I always go back and listen to the song, over and over again.

The least I enjoyed was with Clay, at the Driftveil gym, for starters I got lost in the gym's maze - I ended up back at the start 4 times before reaching leader. After every defeat was the same struggle finding my way around. it was the gym leader that I also struggled the most with, lost 16 times in a row before victory.

My favourite is without a doubt Roxie. She's exactly what I'd be like as a gym leader (maybe with a gender change!) and she uses my favourite typing, plus she has some really cool Pokémon to fight in her gym so it definitely was a favourite of mine. It was also nice not having to do a stupidly complicated and annoying puzzle to get to her for once, and the music in her gym was awesome n.n Plus in the story she seemed really nice and pretty tough so she rates high in my books. As for least favourite, it's Elesa. I just really don't like the whole show-off nature of her gym... it kind of irritates me haha. Plus her Pokémon are easy are really boring to fight, so I'm not a fan of her at all.

Elesa, for a number of reasons. Them being..

1) Getting to take on and beat Pokeverse!Lady Gaga is fun.
2) She was the first gym leader since G1 who I've had to rebattle twice to beat (damn flying squirrel - to be fair, it was partly my own fault, but still..)
3) HOT. DAMN. ._.

Not really feeling roxie as much as everyone else but i do believe she has a better plave as maybe a 6th or 7th gym leader. Marlons my favorite just would have liked to battle him woth 6 pokemon not 3 or 4 and would have loved some dual typing if his team would have beeen like
That pink thing that evolves from feebas

I would have been uber satisfied he would of probably been my favorite of all regions

I don't like Burgh at all really. One of my favorites has to be Marlon, he talks different which makes him stand out imo. He doesn't make long speeches about the relationship between Pokemon and trainers when you beat him (I think?)

Roxie's all there in terms of not only being a Gym Leader, but the lead singer for a band that's (in game) supposed to be totally completely stupendously awesome. She's pretty young and yet her message is a good one: You can split responsibility, but only if you can handle it! It ain't easy! That really resonated with me and made me think she was a pretty cool leader. Thus, she's my favorite Leader in B2/W2.

For the love of Mike, why is Marlon so... Vacant? Unlike some gym leaders who are missing due to taking on duties or personal agendas(Misty's date, Roark's mining, Giovanni's... scheming?), Marlon is more or less described as constantly swimming off for no real reason. As far as I can remember, he doesn't even /give/ a reason. It may be true that other Leaders skive off for relatively weak reasons when they should really be in the Gym doing their job, but Marlon takes this to a whole new level. The first time you meet him, he's been swimming around. Then, right after you beat him, he /again/ vacates his position to go and /swim around/. Finally, I feel his dialogue speaks for itself. This is not a gym leader, I truly want to know /how/ he became a gym leader from all of the work he doesn't do(the whole trifle with Team Plasma doesn't count because he did that on a whim).

Stupid freaky fish guy. >_______>

I like Marlon a.k.a Smiley Swimsuit :3

I like his careless spirit and the fact he's got a cool looking gym theme, which is a very big improvement from previous water gyms.

Also, defeating him was a cakewalk with my Ampharos and Roserade.
West, on a plane bound west
I see her stretching out below
Land, blessed mother land
The place where I was born

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

From the mountains high
To the wave-crashed coast
There’s a way to find
Better days I know

It’s been a long hard ride
Got a ways to go
This is still the place
That we all call home

Yea.. Marlon wasnt tough at all. I love the fact that he is so care free ( admitting it did strike me as odd why he wouldnt help with team plasma ) but it makes more sense then some would think. To be on a coastal rim especially right down the road from a rich society such as undella ( im guessing due to the see-through to the sea floors in the houses ) that humila ( however its spelled ) is even more lavish. He completely devotes his life to the ocean, which would also show why he is the 8th gym leader because he is just like his pokemon which means he is probably way more fine tuned to what needs to be done ( it all also can kind of play in with what N wants - the pokemon living beside humans outside of pokeballs ) I just imagine him in the ocean swimming with wailord and carracosta.
I wish he would of been more of a challenge and also more of a presence earlier in the story so the player would be more used to his attitude before he turns down helping foil plasma

Had to say Burgh. The cool artist that constantly disappears from his gym. He became my favorite gym leader in b/w due to his roll in the story. Him, Clay, and Iris played the big gym leader rolls in the story and idk.. Burgh was just the coolest one.

The least favorite is Clay, though. Just because he is the only one that ever takes more than one try for me to beat with vigorous training in between attempts.
