    I have to admit, I'm somewhat hoping that there is no Dark-type Leader. I see it as a Pokemon 'tradition', if you will, with Dark being the only type that has yet to have a Gym Leader specializing in it.

      It looks like some sort of Strategy Puzzle.. I don't remember hearing anything about Player Owned Gyms.

      Anyway, looking at this image closely, it looks like we could be getting another Grass Type Gym:

      Here's the gif of said Gym (or player owned gym?). Perhaps it is a Psychic Gym? Maybe it's either the beginning or ending because it looks like that blue part is a pathway.

      As mentioned by some, I want a Dark gym leader. Bug and Fire are pretty much confirmed. And if the above images turn out to be Grass and Psychic, I really like them.

        I really want to see a dark gym... (BECAUSE IT'S ABOUT TIME!!!)

        I think it'd be so awesome if there were more than 8 gyms... And maybe you could challenge some of them in a different order... (Dude. Like second gen. LOL)

        I mean, I guess it'd be kinda hard since we don't have a region to "return" to like Kanto... They could just make two new regions next to each other. Or send us to Hoenn!!!!!

        ...

        Wishful thinking...

        ...

        Seriously though I think it'd be cool if they had lots of gyms... Or if not gyms, more main story challenges besides just post game stuff. I like a nice long storyline.

        Oh and... On another note, um...

        Please no ice gyms... The naming of the badges is driving me CRAZY!!! Specifically the localizations to English. Really... Ice>Glacier, Glacier>Icicle, Icicle>Freeze What will happen if the Japanese version has a Freeze badge? XD I mean I guess maybe they'll just avoid that since they're apparently working on it all at the same time, but... you know.

        I think it'd be cool for the first gym to be something more interesting than the past. Rock is way overused, normal is kinda boring, same with flying, and the first gym in Black/White was really just like a rival battle, which you do around the same time in the game, so it's not all that interesting... I want to see something cooler. Like... I dunno, electric or fighting or something. Or throw a curve ball and just give us dark as the first gym!! That'd be awesome.

          A Dark Type Gym Leader is definitely needed, no doubt, zero doubt, period, end of story. What I'm even more interested in however, is if the developers have finally understood that us gamers want more of a challenge. And not in the form of a silly Challenge Mode that's unlocked at the end of completing the main plot, (which in itself only raises trainers' pokemons' levels by 5 or so). We want a challenge straight off the bat. Meaning, we want Gym Leaders with their each, own, individual strategies.

          I want so see each Gym Leader have a battling technique that complements the type of Pokemon they're using. I want to see each Gym Leader concoct a strategy to cover their type's weaknesses. I want to see each Gym Leader become smarter and stronger than the next. I want each Gym Leader to make us think, make us win by forcing us to concoct our own battle style, our own counter-strategies, not just through type adv/disadv.

          Example: A Steel/Rock Type Gym Leader utilizes moves such as Rock Polish and other speed-boosting moves to help support their otherwise extremely slow Pokemon.


          Also with new Gym Leaders, I want harder gym puzzles, and much better badges. Gen V's were horrible imo.

          That is awesome, imo. Yes I agree - I want to be more challenging gym leaders with specific strategies. D= For example, at pokemon Colosseum; each of those Cipher Admins had their own specific strategy (Miror B - Rain Dance, Dakim - Earthquake + Protect, Venus - Attract, Ein - Lightning Rod + Water Pokemon) even though those were double battle strategies, they were challenging! I'd really hope they'd take consideration on how easy the current gym battles are, and seriously re-work them to incorporated strategies that not only work with the TMs they issue, but with moves such as... Trick Room or the weather moves.

          And another thing, I want there to be more harder gym trainers, and a longer gym feel. I dunno, with gyms, I feel like at the end, I feel like Gym Leaders are 'bosses'. And, I want there to be more satisfaction of beating these 'bosses' than just collecting badges and grabbin' those TMs - I want there to be a point where you'll feel that you've really, really, had to actually work for it. Plus, the gym battle music has to be epic!


          PS. I also want a dark gym. XD And a ground gym; there wasn't one for a good while. Not rock. Ground.

            Squirtle thinks another Poison gym should be implanted (OOC: Since Poison is one of the most underdeveloped types...). Squirtle also agrees a Dark-type gym should be implanted.
            Other than that? Steel, Bug, Ghost, Psychic and maybe a Water gym?

              I just hope they were as in depth as bw2's roster
              It seems like every leader had some kind of contingency plan.

              Marlon-... well... hmmm...well thats why hes so laid back because hes an unemployed hippy
              But after it all looking back it really helped give depth to their character and makes them stick mentally better ( imo alot of their teams sucked so they needed that back story you know)
              I just hope that no matter the types we get good teams with full character depth

                Speaking of character depth, I also kind of wish that the gym leaders... will be a bit more arrogant this time around! Like in Gen I - Lt. Surge called you a 'baby', and Brock is all like, 'your pokemon does not compare to mine, are you ready to lose?!' or something paraphrased like that~ Even with Giovanni he's all like, 'I am the best trainer in the world!!'. I dunno, I just feel that the current gym leaders now a days are a bit too nice! D=

                  I think we're going to be getting another Fire member Elite Four (Those giant pillars of fire in the teaser?)

                  I suspect we'll get another Fantina-ish gym leader, since we're moving to France this time

                  So here's hoping for Ghost, Dark and Psychic gyms

                  and I hope we'll be able to catch Riolu and Eevees again...I liked that
                  maybe even Zorua?

                    That image looks to be of a gym. What type of Gym? Who knows, we can only speculate until we have further information. As per what Kanto_Johto said above me, is highly unlikely, for them to make Player ran Gyms there would need to be a system to where players will have the ability to give badges and what not, and I don't see that being possible, although I think it would be cool, but as I said, we can only speculate. :)

                    I have really high expectations for the gyms after B2W2. I wish they'd make the gym puzzles more challenging, though.
                    That whole player run gym thing sounds like a great idea.
                    Maybe they'll do something like that in the future. I don't think they're going to it in XY though.

                    Going by the one scene with the vine swinging I'm betting on a Grass Type gym to go along with the Psychic, Fire, and Bug.

                    From the footage today, it looks like we might see a Bug, Grass, Fire, and some other gym (the changing room one), unless they are actually Elite Four rooms, in which case we might see puzzles in the Elite Four for the first time (unlikely but possible).

                    I'm also amongst those hoping for a Dark-type gym!

                    I'd guess having something like this; Grass, Fire, Psychic, Bug, Dark, Ghost, Rock, Fighting? Although the Fire looking gym could have been an Elite Four room.

                    I think that sometime in the game (probabl after-game) you will be able to have your own gym. And it'll kinda work like the Battle Tower. I wonder what types the new Gym Leaders will have? Ghost? Hm...

                      A Dark-type gym is long overdue. And, just a wild theory, it looks like they may finally introduce a Light-Type guy, based off of the Deer legendary (I'm assuming it's legendary), so if that does happen, they'll probably make a Light gym.

                      Bug and Fire are guaranteed by the video.

                      Sadly, I think they'll take advantage of the 3D graphics to just make the puzzles look better, not improve them at all otherwise.

                      Regarding the predicted Fire Type Gym...I don't think it will be a Gym. It looks like one, square room with a circular battle field in the centre. Meaning, perhaps it's an Elite Four Member's room?

                        I'm hoping too...they made a Gym for Steel in the Gen it was released in (2) and gave no love for dark-types until Sidney. They must have SOME Dark-type gyms planned SOMEWHERE

                        My only request is to NOT have a rock type gym leader. Please.

                        I'm hoping for a male flying gym leader if we get a flying one, because we've had enough females.
                        I'm hoping for a steel type gym leader.
                        I'm hoping for a dark type gym leader.
                        I'm hoping for gym leaders that are twins.

                        I could imagine him as like, a big powerful pilot who is friends with Skyla and often "borrows" her planes. And for the people in his gym to be flight hostesses! Male and female ones :3

                        That would be terrible. I'd prefer someone more like Falkner, but with Burgh flair!

                          There's supposedly to be a Bug and Fire-type gym.
                          And there should be a male flying gym leader.
                          I'm guessing that the room with pillars of fire is a gym.

                          Ew no. Not that I'm opposed to Burgh but if the male flying trainer has the fashion style of Burgh I'll be disappointed. ;(

                          But srs, a pilot sounds badass, HE COULD EVEN FLY YOU TO THE REGION. But really I can't think of what else could be done other than Pilot/Falkner :x
