I'm dedicating this topic to speculation on the life styles of Gym Leaders and other important Trainers.
What do you think life is like for Gym Leaders and Elite Four members when they're not battling Trainers?
Do you think they live alone or with families? Do you think they have lots of people surrounding them constantly or they are more lonely? What about their relationships with other Gym Leaders? (I'm not talking about shipping, I'm talking about things like getting to know other leaders in the region and in other regions.)
I think it depends on the Gym Leader and what their occupation is. For example, Elesa is a supermodel and Roxie is in a rock band, so naturally they has a lot of people following them around. On the other hand, Morty and Flannery do not seem to do anything like that, so I would assume their lives are a little more private.
It might even vary between the games, the anime, and the manga. In the games, Falkner clearly has no occupation besides Gym Leader. But in the manga, he helps out with the police. The anime gives some insight to their life styles, but the games kinda leave it a little more vague - especially the older ones where Gym Leaders are not shown outside of their Gyms.
Who they live with might depend on the age. I'd expect a lot of the younger Gym Leaders like Roxie, Falkner, Janine, and Bugsy to still live with their parents. But older ones like Lt. Surge, Clair, Fantina, and Drayden would probably live on their own - maybe with spouses or children if they have them.
Elite Four members, on the other hand, probably do get quite a bit of publicity and attention. They probably have very good living quarters too. And don't even get me started on Champions.
