    What about a Trick Room-themed gym? Or a Perish Trap themed gym? Or a Volt-Turn gym (god, maybe not)? Assist Shuffle? Baton Pass? Anything involving entry hazards? I want variety!!

    If you people want type specializations, perhaps the Elite 4 can each specialize in one of the weather effects, which is sort of monotype.

    Imagine:
    1 - Gravity
    2 -
    3 - Assist Shuffle (would be the singularly most frustrating gym in history lol)
    4 -
    5 - Perish Trap
    6 - Trick Room
    7 - Baton Pass
    8 -

    Maybe, but I doubt they would make a blonde playable character.
    The main target audience is the Japanese kids and you know, Japanese people don't have blonde hair.
    Virtually every anime ever would like a word. Besides, Japanese people naturally usually have black hair, not brown. Also, she looks like the PC here:

    Really? The hair looks yellow here... Maybe my monitor is broken.
    It's dark blonde. It's certainly not yellow though.

    But plenty of japanese kids have blue hair, right?

    I think the webbed gym is most likely a bug gym.

    That crazy floor gym could be either Psychic or Ghost, but I'm betting Psychic.

    The fiery room could be a gym, but I think it's an Elite 4/Champion's room.

    And I do hope there's a Dark gym in this game. THERE NEEDS TO BE ONE!!!

    what do U think will there be different gyms between X and Y !

    Not only different pokes, different type of gyms?

    I hope for more changes. and differences between versions.

    and will there be a PWT building ?

    I thought it was cool in Black and White where you fought Iris or Drayden depending on the game, but i thought it was awful when there was no difference then the Pokemon's gender. If they were to do that in X and Y, they should make a difference.

    For the gyms, I'm predicting (in order of likeliness, IMO): Bug, Psychic, Dark, Grass, Ground, Fire, Steel, Ice. If Fire is a gym, I bet it'll be that room with the crazy pyrotechnics going on, and it'll be last.

    As for the E4, I predict Normal, Rock, Electric, and Water. Of course, this is assuming they're trying to balance the number of times each is used for what.

    Reasoning:



    Of course, it's no where near solid, but it's my best guess atm.

    P.S. I'd love to see more multi-leader gyms, in the style of the Striaton Trio & Drayden/Iris, but something tells me it was just a Gen V gimmick :/

    Another Psychic-type gym would be nice. We haven't had one of those since Hoenn. And I agree that we need a Dark-type gym leader already. I don't understand why they haven't done that yet. The types I would like to see used for gyms are: Psychic, Steel, Ghost, Dark, Bug, Fire, Poison, and Fighting (not necessarily in that order). Ghost, Steel, and Fighting gyms all weren't in the last gen, so I could see them being used again. We just recently had a Poison gym, but I still wouldn't mind another one. Bug-type seems to be confirmed already.

    Rock, Normal, Electric, and especially Water need to take a break. There's been a Water-type gym in every gen so far except for the second one. I think they should give Water gyms a rest this gen.

    As long as there's a Dark-type gym I'm satisfied.

    Would it be a good idea to use the environments shown as evidence for possible gyms?

    By retcon, yes, it is a Trick Room gym. But the original intent back when Green was made that gym leader was to allow you to fight the champion from the previous games. The fact that they could mold his team into one for Trick Room ten years later is a coincidence.

    I want to see something that is very intentionally designed to be for Trick Room. Meaning pokemon like Escavalier and Claydol, not Trick Room Alakazam that conveniently has a Rhyperior on the same team.

    As a bit of a side-step away from what types of Gyms we can possibly expect/would like to see, I'd like to through into this discussion some talk about the Gym Leaders themselves as well as the actual battle environments.

    Since Diamond & Pearl (if memory serves) Gym Leaders have popped their sprites in and out of battles to throw in comments and whatnot about the battles progress - do you think we'll see this continue in X and Y? I'd imagine that it would be a lot easier to achieve it given the 3D environment, just by having the Gym Leader always there in the background of the environment and simply have the camera cut to them momentarily (I'd imagine regular trainers would also be present in the backgrounds of regular battles too).

    I'm also wondering about the Gyms themselves and how they will be represented in the 3D battle scenes. As has been since Gen I all Gyms are unique with their designs and layouts and I full expect to see this represented in the 3D battle scenes as opposed to just a generic indoor area, which is something I really look forward to seeing too.

    I'd thought about, for Gym battles, actually having a Gym referee in the background of the battles too (like in the anime) and having them "announce" what happens in battle (like "foe's Fennekin fainted" for example) as opposed to it just being stated by some unknown being as has been in the past. This is something that would be purely aesthetic and exclusive to Gym battles (probably) though, but it would be a pretty neat detail that I'd love to see.

    What other mechanics would you like to see (or even expect to see) incorporated into the Gyms and Gym battles based on the 3D features?

    I like all of your ideas, I'd love to see the ref in the background or something like that.
    I'm also intrigued to see what they do with the Gym Battle scenes, I hope they make it worthwhile and exciting!
    I can imagine there being a Dark Type Gym this time around, not just by popular demand, but it hasn't been done before! I'd also like to see a Steel Type Gym! Steel Type Gym's have always been the most challenging for me (Well, Jasmine in G/S not HG/SS, and Byron was awesome).

    A dark type gym and Electric/Grass Elite 4 members would be nice to see.

    Preferably a male grass Elite 4 member. Every grass specialist so far has been female apart from Cilan.

    I'm hopping on board the Dark type gym train. Dark types are one of my favorites! They should have had their own gym by now, don't you think? I'd like to see another poison gym as well.

    Though I'm wondering... what if they decide to mix types in the gyms now? So that the pokemon and the gym's style could be a mix of two types? I dunno about how all of thatwould work but it might be interesting.

    An IceFox who prefers fire types? That's... interesting.
    I'm more partial to blues and greens as well~
