    Default Gym "Obstacles"

    What is your opinion on gym obstacles, such as the lift's in Byron's gym or
    the warp panels in the Mosdeep Gym? Do you think Gym's should be done "Anime-style", in which you walk in the gym and challenge its leader?
    Personally I find them fun, but a few were somewhat vexing. I'd also like some variety, however. I wouldn't mind a straight challenge, but I'd prefer obstacles be kept
    for most gyms.

    I advocate rock pushing puzzles for the Ice-type Gym!

    And I'm talking hard rock-pushing puzzles. Ones where you slide onto rocks and push them over the ice until they bump into other rocks. With at least a 12 by 12 grid. Nothing wussy like the Mahogany Gym.
    The word "quadragonal" is the only word with "dragon" in it where "dragon" is not a root word. That makes it awesome.

    Ultimately, I dislike the puzzles that are provided in gyms -- they don't give me any thrill and they only add extraneous time to my experience playing those games/watching the anime.

    Oh god I hope nothing like that ever happens. Most ice gyms are lame as fuck. As a matter of fact most things having to do with Ice/Snow in video games suck. Remember the trek to Snowpoint? Easily the worst part of DPPt. The only cool Ice gym is Hachiku's.

    I like them for the most part and some of them are pretty damn hard but some seem a bit too easy(not just the first 2 gyms)

    These I think are meant to test the player though out of all of them I'd say Volkners one would be the hardest one to solve cause you have to go back to go forward

    I do wish they'd take the anime approach. D8 An epic battle against the gym leader with a crowd that appears out of nowhere is awesome. Obstacles never made sense to me, and always annoyed me. D8 Sunnyshore Gym especially. I only forgave Volkner because he's hot, but damn, that one is the worst for me.
    Signature is a WIP for the moment.
    For now, I have claimed: Mewtwo, Member's Card, Wide Lens, Honey Gather, and Psystrike.

    I'm pretty indifferent towards the mazes, but I love the trivia gyms (a la Cinnabar).

    NEEDS MOAR TRIVIA! :D

    Erika's HG/SS gym was also a bit of trouble

    I can see why they're there, but I don't particularly like them, especially as I need to go through them all near enough twice to get my pokemon healed before facing the gym leader!

    I find them irritating, mainly when I make a mistake and I have to infuriatingly need to correct it (bugsy, pryce, blue, to name a few) If they can make it so it is satifying without being irritating, that would be good. We all enjoy that "I AMZ THE GREATEST" feeling.

    Candices gym is way more irritatin than Pryces gym. Probably because I was always good at the kicking things into place or strength puzzles

    Nah, I like them. Candice and Volkner's Gyms were hell, though. And I remember taking forever to understand how the Sootopolis Gym worked.

    I like the gym challenges. They aren't all that hard and junior trainers are great for last minute experience.
