    A bit disappointed to not see Iris among them, I was really hoping for her to be the successor of Drayden, but unfortunately not. Oh well, wouldn't mind having her as an Elite Four though. Dragon-trainers tend to be very hard and defeat, and battling her if she was an Elite Four member would surely be a challenge.

    I'm happy to see Elesa, Skyla and Arti, and although I pretty much knew it I must say that I'm still sad that Lenora isn't in these games neither. Oh well, hopefully Homika, Shizui and Cheren will be nice replacements.

    GUYS GUYS GUYS. This TOTALLY means that the Striaton Triplets = Shadow Triad.




    ....




    Anyway, I am a bit disappointed the other gym leaders didn't get new art. Also I'm a bit surprised that Iris didn't take over the gym from Drayden.

    Watch, the Striaton brothers make up three of the four members of the Elite 4. The final member is Lenora, and the champion is Iris.

    I love Elesa's updated artwork.

    Bit disappointed that Drayden still doesn't have a cape, though. D:

    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.
    GSC/HGSS was different because there were only 8 gym leaders per region. What I meant is, 12 *or* 16 gym leaders before the damn Elite 4 is overkill.

    Okay, I was going to vent my disappointment about the lack of new artwork, but several people have already done that; instead I'll add that 1) N still got new artwork even though his design looks the same, 2) I was hoping to see Aloe/Lenora with a design more appropriate for a librarian, and 3) Iris getting axed in favor of Shaga/Drayden being Gym Leader in both versions is rather backwards: it'd make more sense for Iris, being younger, to replace Drayden in Black 2, than be replaced by him in White 2. Then again, we won't know everything for sure until the game actually comes out.

    Oh, and that Ghost/Bug thing on the type chart probably is a typo. :p

    Honestly, I would have loved 12 or 16 gym leaders. That's one of the things I loved about GSC/HGSS. (though where to put them all would be the question. Gen II had two regions to space things out and an Elite Four in-between, Gen V doesn't have that luxury.) It would make up for the decrease in difficultly they had this gen.

    The lack of the Striaton Bros...I can't say I'm truly sad over it. Yes I like them, but that's mostly due to their anime counterparts. Plus they weren't as involved as other gym leaders in the story. though as others have already noted this absence may give credence to the Striaton-Bros=Shadow-Triad theory. *crosses fingers*

    Here's hoping for new outfits for everyone, not just a few of the gym leaders~

    I'm not too disheartened that there aren't any more new Gym Leaders, though I was hoping for re-designs for all of the returning ones. It doesn't make sense to me that Elesa gets new art, but the others don't. I get that she is a model and all... but, you know, regular people change their clothes too.

    Since Skyla have a new sprite (without the gloves and with what looks like a skirt) in the game trailer and she is still with the old art in the picture, I guess we can't assume that the other Gym Leaders still have a change of receiving new arts. I am not disappointed about Iris not being in the picture, because I believe she surpassed Drayden and is now an Elite Four or something like that. Anyway, looking forward for the new arts.

    Like that can stop the power of plot. Mark my words, the Shadow Triad, whether they are the Striaton trio or not, will appear in some way in Black and White 2. I'm pretty sure I saw them in that animated trailer as well.

    They did indeed appear in the trailer. I only mentioned it because I found it amusing that the Striaton Trio also seems to have "vanished" for the time being x3

    They only said that they would never meet Hilbert/Hilda again; Black2/White2 are fair game.
