I think a dark gym is a good idea. As for the leader's gender, it doesnt matter to me. I originally had a male dark gym leader made up named Darcen(darken with the k replaced with c), but I like the name Terry. That can be a girl or guy name.

I noticed that all the grass gym leaders were girls, but never found it ironic until now. The other starting types have gym leaders of each gender, what makes grass different? Probably the flowers...but a male grass gym leader can be like a forest ranger. Or a lumberjack. Forest ranger would probably fit better, since lumberjacks tend to destroy nature.

Actually ground hasnt had a gym either. Giovanni doesnt count...

I don't see how Giovanni doesn't count. He hands out a badge, all the Pokemon he uses in the Gym battle in Red, Blue, FireRed and LeafGreen are Ground, and his name is even taken from "geo." I'm pretty sure that makes him a Gym Leader.

True...I didnt notice the "geo" name thing.

I don't consider him a true gym leader because that's not all he does. He also runs Team Rocket. None of the other gym leaders have other jobs, not to mention theyre not villains.

Unless of course he was a gym leader first, but it's hard to tell.

This is true. You do make a good point, though. I guess I never really considered Giovanni's running Team Rocket a job until now.

I made a Male Grass Type Gym Leader in the appropiate thread just cause of this fact...&...

&...Giovanni isn't the only gym leader with another job as well...but to be honest he was a disgrace of a Ground Type Gym Leader anyway so...yeah, he doesn't count...I want a Ground Type Gym Leader with an actual theme stating that he/she is a Ground Type Gym Leader peferrably a female Gym Leader since there isn't one for that type yet...

Glad you found it...it needed more traffic umm back on topic...anyone?...

Well I for one would like an Ice Type Gym to appear early in the game & a Dark Type Gym to appear later in the game...mainly the later thing...

The Dark Type should probably come at the latter half, maybe at the sixth or seventh gym.

As for a male grass leader, how about Wood(y), as a name?

If they did that...& I would hope that they would make a male Grass Type Gym Leader, then this could work as a name I guess...& yes, yes, the Dark Type Gym must come at around the 6th or 7th Gym cause otherwise it would be a dissapointment considering the lack of Dark Types & the fact that they may not fix this well enough to be able to work with it being any earlier...I vote for it to be the 6th Gym myself...

All Nintendo would need to do to make a fun selection of gyms for a new generation is; count up all of the gyms in previous games, work out the least common ones, use the least common gender for those gym leaders in each gym, and use the new pokemon in the generation as each leader's signature pokemon. I think that the dark gym should be the last and hardest one, with Zoruak as the signature pokemon. This would make up for a lack of prior dark gym leaders.

Yeah...actually I wouldn't mind at all if the Dark Gym Leader was not only last but female as well...that would be amazing...

Thanks...& that might not pose as much of a challene that's needed from a 6th or 7th Gym...Solrock & Lunatone provided a decent amount of challenge for a 7th(?) Gym due to them working well together & both having great stats for that point in the game...even with their weaknesses it was not too easy to win...with the new Dark Types I see this = Zorua hits the dust slightly too quick to be a challenge & then Zoroark is overpowered & victory is yours...besides, I'm pretty sure there will be a Fighting Type & definetely a Bug Type by that point in the game that will pose a threat here of some kind...meh...

I'm all for being more challenging but I assume that they won't ever move it above 8 for two reasons...

1) Its been something they've kept constant throughout the whole series

2) In the Pokemon show I believe every region has had only 8 gyms, and the games try to keep things like geography/cities pretty similar to the show.

No more than 8 gyms please. There are certain traditions we just can't break.

He is right. If you want more than 8, Then at least ask for another region for 16 gyms.

To be honest I'm joining this discussion after only reading the last three posts.
There are two things I love about this thread, already.
1. Dark-type gym would be fantastic
2. Another double battle gym leader challenge would make my life as close to complete as it's going to get

I really hope that they put a Dark-Type Gym Leader. Sidney and Karen aren't tough. In my opinion, they're weak. Anyway, a Dark Type Gym Leader is a must. I swear, if they put another Dark Type E4, I'm gonna be mad!

How would they design the gym though?

Between Morty's two and Fathama's two gyms from their respective generations/games a dark looking room idea has been very explored already.

Maybe they could explore the evil side of it?
Like, Dark-type doesn't necessarily represent darkness to me (weird, right?)
It represents wrongdoings and the like.
I'm not creative at all, so I can't give a specific example, but I think it'd be neat.

They could go in the Moon theme direction or have some kind of Dark Forest like theme to it...tbh, I don't care what they do as long as I get my Dark Type Gym Leader & her/he is a good one...

On all accounts here, I agree, I like that, that's the way to think AceTrainer...
