    I'm a little disappointed there aren't more new Gym Leaders, but I wonder if the order of the old ones is still the same? I'd like to see Clay as the new eighth Gym Leader, he did seem to be the one in charge before.

    Now I just hope Iris isn't a member of the Elite Four. *Shudders*

    Who is this git?

    Any possibility that this is why old artwork was used? When Giovanni was revealed for the World Tournament, he used his FrLg art despite using his HgSs art.
    I don't think Giovanni even received new Sugimori Artwork for HG/SS. At least, i can't find it anywhere on his Bulbapedia page. If i am wrong again, please correct me.

    I still hope we can battle the missing Unova leaders at some point in the games, maybe even in the World Tournament. Apart from that, i want to know which Pokémon they will use, and if they use more than three in the first battle.

    What, so 12 gym leaders is overkill, but 16 isn't?

    Anyway, I don't know about you guys, but I want main series Pokemon games to be longer. I think their current length is fine, but the more the better when it comes to Pokemon games.

    I am surprised at the lack of Iris (and a bit disappointed), but I hope that she might be a version exclusive Gym Leader like last time that we don't know. After all, if she appeared, people would know how her new look is like, which is probably the case due to the games taking place two years later.

    Thanks for reading.

    Yes! New gym leaders!

    Doesn't it worry anyone that Pokemon Black and White 2 is coming out in a week(Japan) and we don't even know what order the gym leaders are in, not to mention where they live, or almost anything about Pkmn B/W 2?
    Dibs on Banette or Wobbuffet.
    I claimed Wobbufet! Man, that doesn't sound very exciting.

    I don't calculate stat values, and I don't care about natures. I catch my Pokemon the way they are. I just play the game normally. If you agree copy & paste this in your sig.

    I have claimed Imposter.

    Like the others, im disappointed they didn't change their clothes or get a few more replacement leaders, but i digress. Here's to hoping their rosters are updated at least.

    That was spread between 2 regions, Unova is just one continent/country. Besides, the other 8 leaders weren't even mandatory to go up against. So yes, overkill.

    They clearly kept both Skyla and Elesa for fanservice reasons.

    We don't usually learn about the order of the Gym Leaders until people start getting the game, as the instruction booklet tells you. We only know the first 2, which is more than previously.

    Also, I imagine GameFreak wanted to keep most of it a surprise.

    Not really. The gym leader order isn't really all that vital, plus we don't even know the way you progress through Unova in BW2 in the first place. Besides, the fact that it is coming out in under a week (people who have pre-ordered it should get it by Thursday or Friday) means that we don't have to be worried - and the more stuff we discover in the coming weeks after BW2 is released, the better.

    Uh, I think the other 8 gym leaders were mandatory, seeing as you couldn't face Red otherwise. Plus, if you did all of Johto, why wouldn't you finish the game and battle the other 8 gym leaders anyway?

    I still don't understand why everyone believes others won't get redesigned when Skyla has a different design in the games as well.

    I know two years isn't a long time, but the gym leaders in Kanto managed to change a little bit after three years (from Gen I to Gen II). It would be unrealistic to assume that Elesa is the only "BW-original" GL to have changed in appearance over the past two years.

    Perhaps the Striaton Trio are too busy being the Shadow Triad to be Gym Leaders? :3 /shot

    If Cilan is not in this game, I'm not sure if I will still buy it or not. Unless, the previous Striaton Gym Leaders are revealed as the Shadow Triad.

    Don't leave Comrades behind.

    ​If that's the case, where's Cilan, Cress, and Chili? Clearly the Shadow Triad!
