    That'd be cool. I actually wouldn't mind fully mixed gym teams (i.e. a mix of six types) either, but I guess that kind of thing is reserved for champions and frontier brains and such.

    What about having it more specified by theme? For example, say a Gym Leader who specialises in serpent/snake-like Pokémon using the likes of Arbok, Steelix, Seviper, Eelektross, etc - know that's a really simplified example, but so much could be done with that kind-of thinking and it would really open up the challenges a bit more. I think someone earlier in the thread suggested a Trick Room based Gym, which would be really cool and different.
    Like, the tree-swinging gym could be adapted to use Pokémon like Primeape, Sudowoodo, Ambipom, the elemental monkeys, to give a bit more diversity... which just gave me thought, given how they seem to pushing the 3D environment a bit with this game, maybe the Gyms each specialise in one kind of environment and use Pokémon that live in said environment?

    For a long time, I've liked the idea of seeing dual/multi-type gyms. Like a gym down a cave or up a mountain where it's Ice/Rock type, an industrial city by the coast where there's a Water/Electric type gym, a Fire/Ground type gym out in the desert or a Fighting/Steel type "warrior" themed gym. Those may not be the most challenging combinations in battle but you get the idea. I also think it'd be neat to have a gym of two levels; one level with one gym leader's theme and you go up a floor to a slightly different theme and battle the second gym leader to get the badge.

    We've been given a Grass gym, a Bug gym, and a Psychic gym. We've also been given a Fire Elite 4 room

    That first bit about serpent/snake-like pokemon gave me the funniest thought.

    I demand a crazy cat lady gym leader. xD
    An IceFox who prefers fire types? That's... interesting.
    I'm more partial to blues and greens as well~

    I'm at the very least hoping each Gym Leader has more than three Pokemon. Give them a full six, please. Pokemon can repeat, that's fine with me, but it's gotten to the point where they're not even challenging and don't serve the title of "boss battle" justice. They're no better than any other trainer and frankly are just a pleasant change in background music.

    Aside from that, I hope the Gym Leaders are all given plot-heavy backgrounds. Really involve them into the story. Maybe make one Gym Leader the player character's brother or sister, or let's see Norman v2.0. I was much more pleased with characters like Clay and Marlon, who had accents and used slang and epitomized their stereotypes. They seemed extremely human and were definitely relatable. As long as GameFreak improves upon the characters we had in Black & White then we should be in good shape.

    Because fighting two Patrats and four Lillipups at the first gym would be just wonderful, right? Larger teams for later leaders would be wonderful, but it's unnecessary for earlier leaders.

    I hope the gym leaders are a bit more challenging this time around. I found most of the Unova gym leaders minus Lenora very easy to beat. I also think the later Gym leaders should have more Pokemon or a full team, I actually want a challenge when I fight a Gym leader.

    I agree, the only one's who challenged me were Lenora and Elesa.

    And I beg to what ever deity will listen that their's a Dark Type Gym Leader (Preferably a 7th or 8th Gym)

    It would be difficult, which is exactly what I'm asking for. Maybe in X & Y we'll be able to play with different levels of difficulty from purchase of the game, not after our first playthrough.

    I don't like the idea of the first leaders having a team of six Pokémon. It should be like this:

    1st leader: Two Pokémon
    2nd leader: Three Pokémon
    3rd leader: Three Pokémon
    4th leader: Four Pokémon
    5th leader: Four Pokémon
    6th leader: Five Pokémon
    7th leader: Five Pokémon
    8th leader: Six Pokémon

    Anyway, it seems we will get one more Bug-type Gym and I really hope we finally get a female Bug-type Gym Leader this time.

    As long as they don't do what Gen 5 did having Gyms max out at 3 Pokemon by the 3rd Gym and the Rival max at 4 I'd be fine. Also Elite Four need their original amount of 5 back

    That's really not so much difficult as it is frustrating and annoying. /:
