    Enough for eight gyms, in fact. Though I doubt the game would use all of these types.

    Poison - Castor
    Ghost - Ferly
    Psychic - Delphine
    Ground - Homer
    Bug - Walter
    Dark - Impera or Bonnie (Vito's from Hoenn)
    Steel - Margaret
    Dragon - Drakon
    Where do the names come from? I really would not like to see Dragon as the last gym again. I think a good Psychic gym would be great for the 8th.

    I'd prefer if the Elite 4 specialised in strategy as opposed to type. For example, have the Elite 4 use teams based on Sunny Day, Rain Dance, Hail and Sandstorm, with the champion using Trick Room.

    Or at the very least, I'd like to see a Grass-type Elite 4 member.

    The house that forms in the trailer looks like it will be a Distortion World-like Psychic Gym, with screwed physics. The house that forms also looks like a very stereotypical, almost symmetrical household, so maybe we'll have to investigate it sort of like the Trick House in RSE.

    Here's my wishlist/guesses:

    Gyms:

    1. Fighting (Male maybe?)
    2. Bug (Female)
    3. Ghost (Male)
    4. Psychic (Male)
    5. Poison (Female)
    6. Normal (either,)
    7. Rock/Ground mix (female, females, or male+female) (Maybe with a Triple battle or Double battle?)
    8. Dark (either)

    Elite Four

    1. Steel (Female?)
    2. Flying (Male)
    3. Grass (Male)
    4. Electric maybe? (Female?)

    Champion: Fire (Male?)

    Other stuff:

    A well developed or mysterious character in the story that uses Dragon types. He/She (Same as your character's gender) will be a post game challenge, akin to Steven in Emerald.

    The rival will be Diversified, so there's no need for a diversified leader or champ, and they will also be a late game challenge for your last battle with them.

    We need a Dark Gym leader, that's violent and threats you with nasty stuff. Like, imagine that you arrive to the city, and the Gym Leader is a boss of criminal gang in the city... They attack you with pokemon outclassing your level, and losing is inevitable...so you respawn at pokecenter and the event never happens again. To beat the Gym Leader you have to go on the journey and train your pokemon, then come back and fight the Leader. After beating him, he notices his wrong, and becomes a better person... But NOPE instead let's just be kind friends and show the things that will never happen to you in RL kids... Oh, it's time to go to school~

    Anyway, I want the Gym Leaders to use pokemon from other regions, that's cool when they do that.

    As long as the first gym isn't Rock, and the last gym isn't Water or Dragon, I'm OK

    A Normal type for the first gym would be OK, even despite it was done in W2. Aside from the Riolu abuse that makes Cheren's gym cheap, it tries to keep the sort of "neutrality" that was given in Gen V, i mean, any of the three starters has the same chances against the first Leader.

    In previous generations, aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaalll the Rock gyms left the Fire starters with disadvantages, being poorly fixed with Metal Claw (FR/LG) and (by now annoying) Fighting second-typing. In Gen II, Chikorita was in disadvantage due to Falkner.

    I want to see a Fire Gym too, it's been a while since last time (Chili is a strange special case). Though in the very first trailer there was a room looking like either a Fire Gym or Elite 4.

    Aaaand I'd like a Dark Gym, just like everyone else wants.

    I guess the 8 is a tradition :S But I understand your pain bro ;c

    Besides, with 3D graphics for 750+ pokemon and whole game there really can't be much place for diversity I'm afraid D:

    16, like Johto games. Maybe returning to an old region... it's not impossible.

    About the space, 3DS cartridges apparently have an obscene space limit, being 8 GB maximum. Consider Mario Kart 7 weighs around 700 MB. Compare to Mario Kart DS, just 32 MB. Now extrapolate to a big RPG like Pokémon (B2/W2 was 512 MB).

    The hard work here would be modelling the whole map... however, somewere I read Pokémon XY have been in development for several years, even before Gen V launch.

    Anyone think they should introduce some gyms that aren't type-focused but focused on other things? For example, a gym where the teams are focused on having only a minimal amount of weaknesses, gyms that focus on certain color/shape/size Pokémon, or gyms where the focus is on double/triple/rotation battles. Even gyms where the leader still specializes on one type but tries to avoid its traditional weaknesses would be nice (e.g. a water leader with a grass/water type, a water/electric type, and a water/ground type).

    Of course, they could still include some type-specified gyms too, or even possibly combine the aforementioned features with type-specific gyms. I just think a little bit of variety could spice things up instead them of always having the same "every gym focuses on one type only" shtick. As the generations go by, each type will have more and more gyms (except the poor dark type), and some like electric and water have been used to death already. When every type will have been used 10+ times, they will have exhausted the potential of monotype gyms.

    Of course, gen V still had some potential, since the leaders had more distinct stories and were more involved in the main plot. However, I don't think they should solely rely on simply fleshing out leader personalities or making unique designs/themes for each gym. Gen VI should definitely introduce a new aspect for at least some of the gyms. Anything new at all would be much appreciated from this longtime fan.

    I agree with the strategy-based/battle type based gyms idea. If they insist on following the standard 8-gyms-8-types formula so closely, things will get stale. A few gyms of a different sort would be really interesting.

    And yes, a dark type gym! The gym should be literally dark, with the leader whispering to you from the shadows. A steel-type gym would be great too, featuring giant robots.
