Thread for guessing gym teams/ gym leaders.
Cheren's gym team is pretty much already confirmed unless for some reason Game Freak throughs us a curve ball he has a Delcatty instead.
In most cases for gym leaders usually use a strong pokemon or hand a really powerful TM move and in the Anime Gardodor used Venomshock, the anime has been pretty consitant with giving the TM as part of the move set of said pokemon so that's my guess. In case I'm wrong then she's probably going to use an underleveled Scolipede or Garbodor.
There's no telling which pokemon Shizui will use on his team but my guess is pretty good. There's also a chance he could use Azumarill, Floazel, Buizel, Pelipper, Wailmer, or Golduck.
Burgh will now be the fourth gym leader move up in rank to establish them as having improved over the last two years. I'm guessing Burgh will use a Joltic since Homika might use a Whirlipede.
Elesa's team is pretty obvious, unless by a slim chance she'll use a Magnemite instead of Emolga.
There's a new steel building in Driftviel City, so I think Clay has switched to using Steel type or has decided to retire to focus on his business. There's still a slight chance he could use a Durant or Pawniard. If he isn't switching types then he'll use the same gym team as the original BW.
I can think no better but for Skyla to have the same team she had in the original BW. She deserves an Archeops now as the 7th gym leader she can have a strong 7th pokemon.
The Opilucid gym leader will now be in opposite games to be consistent with there new experience.
