If I Was a Pokémon Gym Leader

If I Was a Pokémon Gym Leader


– Greetings Pokefans! Michael here, and something that many Poketubers have
talked about over the years is what their gym would be like, if they were a gym leader. What their team would be,
where the gym would be, what the puzzle
would be and more. But I have never done that
myself, that is, until today. In this video, I will
be going over my ideas for if I had a gym
and was a gym leader, in the Pokemon world, but I’ll
actually be doing it twice. First I’ll be going over if I
had a gym in the Galar region, where I’m limited to types
that are not already taken and then I will be going
over if I had a gym anywhere with no limitations whatsoever. So don’t forget to
subscribe to my channel, and let’s get started
with my Galar region gym, where I would be an
electric-type gym leader. This choice was pretty easy. Electric is not taken and
it’s my favorite type. This is my character
design for myself as an electric-type
Galar gym leader. I’m wearing my signature hat
but with different colors and all my Pokemon are in Quick
Balls, my favorite Pokeball. I’m of course sporting
the electric uniform, but with plain black
leggings instead of the regular one
with purple sparkles, simply because I thought the
sparkles were a bit much. My eyes are yellow
because they fit well with the electric typing
and let’s be honest, they make me look anime. And my uniform number is 99. The significance
of the number 99 is that it was my jersey number
in middle school football but also it’s the jersey
number for JJ Watt, who is my favorite
professional sports player. Also it’s just a cool number. As for how my gym
battles would work, I’d want them to be
just like Raihan’s, where they’re double battles. In my play through of Sword, I tried to make all
my gym battles fair, where I only used the
same amount of Pokemon as the gym leader, played
on the set battle style and didn’t use healing items. Raihan’s battle was the
closest of all of them with it ending 1v1. Also, ignore my
Corviknight there, it’s the fifth
Pokemon I sent in, ’cause I had to and
it was in my party and I intentionally
didn’t attack with it, it didn’t participate. That battle, being
a double battle is the reason it was such
a close, epic battle. I’d simply think that double
battles are straight up, more fun than single battles. There’s less switching. There’s more strategy about
when you should protect, when you should attack
and who you should attack, when you attack. There’s also all sorts of
really cool interactions, between ally Pokemon,
how their abilities work and some abilities only
work in double battles. And I just think it’s
way more interesting. Because of my love
for double battles, I’d want my gym to host them. They’d be 4v4 double battles,
just like Raihan’s gym and also like Raihan’s battle, I would use an
environment strategy. But instead of Sandstorm, I
would use Electric Terrain, activated by my Electric
Surge Pincurchin. My first Pokemon,
Pincurchin’s main role is to, as I said, set Electric Terrain, thus powering up the
electric moves of my team. After that it just
starts smacking the
challenger’s Pokemon with physical moves like
Zing Zap, Poison Jab and Liquidation for coverage
against ground types. I might give it Protect
for its fourth move, but also might give it an
entry hazard like Spikes. By the way I should mention
that these move sets, I’m giving for these
Pokemon are assumes that I am one of the last,
if not the last gym leader. So I have the most
move set options. I’m doing that, ’cause I
didn’t wanna limit myself. My other lead Pokemon
would be Lanturn. Lanturn has always been
a Pokemon I’ve thought was really well-designed, but I’ve never had
a chance to use it. That is, until my electric gym. Its main role is to
be a strong counter for opposing Ground types,
which the challenger is sure to bring, since it’s the only
type strong against electric. Lanturn would have Volt
Absorb as its ability because it’s a double
battle situation, where I can have the
partners attack it with the Electric
moves to heal it. It wouldn’t happen very
often, I would assume with Pincurchin ’cause
Pincurchin would have to attack Lanturn instead
of the enemy Pokemon, but the other two Pokemon, I would give Discharge because
they’re special attackers so Discharge works on them and then they can
hit the enemy Pokemon and heal Lanturn
at the same time. Lanturn would run Thunderbolt
and Scald for Stab attacks. Ice Beam to cover grass types and then either Protect
or maybe Whirlpool to trap enemy Pokemon. My next team member is Vikavolt. While Vikavolt’s
Levitate prevents it, from getting the benefits
of Electric Terrain, I just thought it
wouldn’t be right for me to not have my second
favorite Pokemon of all time, on my gym team for
a type that it is. I have to include Vikavolt. Plus, while Levitate
doesn’t make it get boosted by the Electric Terrain,
it helps it not get hurt by earthquakes. Vikavolt would run Discharge
as I mentioned earlier for when it’s next to Lanturn. Thunderbolt for when it’s
not, Bug Buzz and Sticky Web to help my whole team
with their speed issue, because Pincurchin, Vikavolt and Lanturn are all
on the slower side. It doesn’t have any
coverage for opposing Rock or Fire types, which
are its weaknesses, but the idea is that
Lanturn and Pincurchin, handle those with their
Water type coverage. Now you may be
thinking it’s strange that none of my Pokemon
so far have Thunder Wave. After all, the majority of
electric type gym battles, throughout all of
Pokemon’s history, have at least one Pokemon
with Thunder Wave, ’cause Paralysis is the
Electric type thing. However, while I do not
have Thunder Wave on any of my Pokemon, I
do have another way that I intend to spread
status conditions. And that is with my ace
Pokemon, Gigantamax Toxtricity. Toxtricity is one of my
favorite Gen 8 Pokemon, and its Gigantamax form is
my favorite of all of them. It’s the perfect Pokemon to
have as my ace for a Galar gym, and it works perfectly
since no other gym leader or any in-game trainer
at all uses one. Its special move G-Max
Stun Shock either poisons or paralyzes both enemy Pokemon, so that is how I’ll spread
status conditions everywhere. As for its moves to use once
it’s returned to normal, I’d run Discharge
as I mentioned, Overdrive for when I don’t
need to heal Lanturn, Sludge Bomb and Hyper Voice so I don’t hurt my ally
Pokemon with Boomburst. It would be Amped form
because I like that form more, and its ability would be Punk
Rock to power up Overdrive and Hyper Voice for when
I’m not Gigantamaxed. Toxtricity is just
such a cool Pokemon that’s really
popular, so I’m kind of surprised it didn’t
end up as the ace Pokemon for any of the Galar
big-name trainers. My gym would fix that. Now for the gym itself. The location, I’m flexible on. The only two towns in
the entire Galar region that don’t already have a
stadium are the first two towns and they wouldn’t really
have room for one. So instead, let’s assume that
I’m a minor league leader that gets strong
enough to replace one of the main eight gyms, so
if I had to pick a stadium to swap out with, I
would pick Turffield’s. While the surrounding rural
atmosphere doesn’t fit much with electric type, it’s
just such a pretty place that I think would be pretty
cool to spend a lot of my time. Plus the likely Gigantamax
Toxtricity on the hill, would be quite poetic,
since I would use one too. For the gym puzzle,
I picture something that has to do with like
memorization and EDM music. So there’s several
colored lights that play a note sequence
that you have to memorize, then you walk around and step
on certain colored buttons that correspond to the notes
to make the same little melody. If you do so successfully, it
plays a short little EDM riff with that melody that you just
put in as the main melody, but there’d be other
things added to it, to make it more just
a couple of notes. If you get it wrong, you
have to fight a trainer, but once you beat them, it’s
still plays the little riff, ’cause you know, that’s fun. Also if you’re worried about
a music puzzle being difficult for those who are hard
of hearing to solve, like I said, there would be
colored lights and buttons, so you can solve the puzzle
totally visually as well. The last thing I need to cover is what my team would look
like in the Champion’s Cup, as all gym leaders can come
back and compete in that with a full teams of six. Well, unfortunately,
like Raihan, I would be forced into
single battles instead of double battles, I still
think I could still hold my own. While my base team of four
would remain the same, the Pokemon I’d add would
be Dracozolt and Boltund. Dracozolt is the faster
of the two zolt fossils and is therefore more
likely to do big damage with Bolt Beak. And Boltund is
great-looking Pokemon that would give my team
some much needed speed. For the single battle aspect, I think I would probably
lead with Pincurchin to set Electric
Terrain immediately. And then, right away
just Self-Destruct, so it can get a Pokemon
that is better suited for sweeping, even faster. So that concludes my idea
if I had a Galar gym, but now for my second
me as a gym leader idea, where I have no
restrictions on location or team or anything like that. So if I’d to pick anywhere
in the Pokemon world, I would pick the Hoenn region. After all, it is my home region. The location would
be Fortree City, which has being my favorite
city in the Hoenn region, ever since I was a kid. I know Winona already
has a gym there, but as I said, no restrictions. We’ll just pretend she
died in a flying accident. (explosion) Okay never mind that’s horrible. She moved up to be an Elite
Four Member after Drake retired. Are you happy now? Fortree City which
is my favorite city because it’s literally
a city of tree houses, an aesthetic I
have always loved. Whether it’s Fortree or
Ewok’s towns on Endor or the Freedom Fighter’s
base in Avatar, if you have a village
where it’s all tree houses, I’m going to like it. Being surrounded by greenery
while also being so high up and connected to
it, is beautiful. That’s why I would make
my gym a grass type gym. First off, it’s my second
favorite type behind electric and we just did the
whole electric thing, but also because it would
fit so well with Fortree because you’re so
connected to nature there. I’m honestly surprised
Fortree’s gym wasn’t a grass type
gym from the start. Hoenn already had a water
and a fire type gym, why not complete the triangle. Also another reason I’d want
to be a grass type gym leader is that Ramos’s gym from X and Y is my favorite gym interior
in any Pokemon game. It is beautiful and so
cool to climb to the top of this massive tower,
while leaves fall all around and you find this cute
office space up at the top, that’s like his little lab. That’s awesome. This is my design for me as the Fortree City
grass type gym leader. The rope and
Go-Goggles are there because of what this
version of me mainly does, in his spare time, work on
the tree houses and ladders of both Fortree itself
and the Fortree gym. The rope is of course used
for lashing wood together and the goggles are
there to shield my eyes, when flying around on
the back of my Tropius, which assists me with
working on the tree houses that are much higher
up in the trees and therefore
harder to climb to. The style of leaf on my shirt is a nod to a
Tropius’s leaf wings. I like to think that
a big change that
gym-leader-me brought to Fortree is the
implementation of elevators. As of right now, Fortree
just has ladders, which doesn’t really
work well for people, who are not able-bodied,
so I like to think that he implemented,
like platforms of wood with rope going over
and a pulley system, using counterweights, you know. Like, engineering! My gym would make use
of these elevators and I picture it like Byron’s
gym in the Sinnoh region, but with wooden
rope-lifted platforms, moving around instead
of metal floating ones. Challengers would have to
navigate through this maze of wooden platforms
and elevators that are attached
between the trees and it looks really cool, until eventually
reaching me at the top, on the big wooden platform
battlefield I have built, in the tippy-top
canopy of the trees, far above the houses in Fortree. That may seem dangerous
if the challenger brings, like a super heavy
Pokemon, but don’t worry, engineering, it is
structurally sound. And also when I say high above, I just mean like the elevation, they’re not directly
above the houses. My team would of course depend, on which number gym leader I am, but if I had the honor of
being the final gym leader and got to have a
full team of six, this is what my
team would would be. First is Tropius, as
I already mentioned. It’s out of its Pokeball most
of the time since as I said, it’s my main method
of transport, between all the different
levels of the tree houses. It’s not my strongest Pokemon, but it can hold
its own for sure, especially when the opponent
can’t fly to keep up with it. Next is Breloom, a Pokemon
I’ve always really liked and one of the best
designed Pokemon out there. Its stretchy-arm punches are
a force to be reckoned with. Then is Whimsicott, a
great support Pokemon that I like to use
to set up Tailwind for the other
members of my team. Then is Ludicolo, my main
answer to challengers who plan to defeat me with Fire types. Since it can learn both
Rain Dance and Sunny Day, I can choose which
weather helps me more, depending on whether
the challenger is leaning more on
Fire types or not. Next is Sawsbuck,
a very cool Pokemon that ends up being in its
summer form most of the year, due to the tropical climate
of the Hoenn region. And finally is Mega Sceptile, my first starter Pokemon I got
when starting out my journey, back in Littleroot Town. It’s my most powerful
Pokemon by a sizable margin and it has ended many a
battle with one strike. I only activate its mega
form against the strongest of challengers, as
its sheer power, risks damaging the
surrounding infrastructure. I considered using
Torterra and Decidueye, but in the end I decided, my team should really
only have one starter. Also, if I had to limit
my team selection, to Pokemon that are
in the Hoenn Pokedex, then I would swap out
Whimsicott and Sawsbuck for Shiftry and Roserade. Roserade is in the ORAS Pokedex. I also like Cacturne but
because it’s a cactus, I didn’t think it
would fit really well, in the tropical
forest type area. So I didn’t pick it. My gym badge would be… Honestly I do not care. I’ve never really
cared that much, about the particular
emblem, so we’ll just… It looks like a tree. It’s the tree
badge, there you go. Thank you so much for watching and an extra special thanks
to my patron over on Patreon, who are helping support
me in a way independent of fluctuating and unreliable
YouTube bad revenue. If you wanna help support
me in the same way and get some cool
perks in exchange, like my videos with no ads, the link is in the
description below. Also, don’t forget to
check out some more of my fun Pokemon content,
including my week two battle of the Metronome
Battle Federation. Which is over here. All right, that’s
all I have for now. So until next time, Pokefans. Gotta catch them all.

100 thoughts on “If I Was a Pokémon Gym Leader

  1. heres my concept!
    Type: Multi Type
    Region: Galar
    City: Motostoke
    My backstory for this is that when Kabu eventually decides to retire (not that he ever will tbh) he holds a selection of try outs for who can replace him as a gym leader. I keep coming back with various different teams to see if I can manage to win him over. Eventually he decides "fine, theyre persistent so…" and gives me a spot as the gym leader.
    Due to the fact I use a multi-type team, similar to Blue, my team predominantly focuses on different strategies. I feel like if I was ALLOWED to choose what my team would be like, it would be different for different challengers, but I have a feeling that whoever's in charge of the Galar gym challenge following SWSH's ending stamps down on me being an indecisive weirdo.
    My gym puzzle is very similar to Kabu's, involving capture of various pokemon in the tall grass alongside gym trainers; these pokemon are random depending on when you play the game so everyone's experience would be different but its typically first form pokemon such as grookey, blipbug, skwovet, yamper, wooloo, bounsweet, hattena, clobbopus, rolycoly, toxel, cufant etc.
    Gym trainers will typically use similar pokemon, sometimes even in 2nd or 3rd form (like orbeetle, the 2nd forms of the starter trio etc.) and they'll often aim at YOUR pokemon with moves that confuse, poison or paralyze you. You have to be quick with healling items, as well as immediately attacking them so you can focus on the Pokemon themselves and getting points.
    Once you get 5 points, you get to battle me. When you get to me its very similar to the other Galar gym trainers, except I'm already standing out in the field waiting for you. I apologise for the difficulty of my gym challenge, but say that was just a breather compared to my team. And I get my first Pokemon ready.
    My team consists of three Pokemon within the levels of 25 – 35. These are;
    Level 25 Cufant with the Sheer Force ability. Its moveset is Rock Smash, Bulldoze, Stomp and Iron Defence. It's main strategy is to spam the HECK out of Iron Defence, increasing its defense as it mainly uses brute force against your Pokemon. It IS a steel type tho, so if you have a fire type Pokemon you can easily take it down in more than one hit.
    Next up is a level 30 Boltund, with the moves Swift, Crunch, Charm and Spark. Using Charm, it lowers your Pokemon's attack, focusing on outspeeding and paralyzing you before you even get the chance to attack. While it DOES have high HP and the Strong Jaw ability, which increases the power of Crunch, it also has INCREDIBLY low special defence and defence
    Finally, is my ace in the hole, a level 30 Thwackey. This is the Pokemon I dynamax (yes, dynamax, not gigantimax) and it knows the moves Branch Poke, Acrobatics, Taunt and Low Kick. This means that in its dynamax form, it has Max Overgrow, Max Airstream and Max Knuckle. It's the main physical attacker, utilizing the fact that after Cufant or Boltund, your team may be weak and easy to take down.
    But of course you beat me, and I give you the Multiple badge, and later you recieve TR07 – Low Kick from one of the gym trainers out the front gate.
    Much like Kabu, I don't go through the Champions Cup and I also appear in the post game (mainly using either cufant or boltund against the dynamax pokemon in my gym) but following the post game, I return during your Champions Cup with my 3 main Pokemon at higher levels (and Cufant and Thwackey evolved into Copperajah and Rillaboom) as well as a Snorlax, Grappleloct and Hatterene. Prior to the DLC, Snorlax is my last Pokemon and I gigantimax it, but after the DLC's release, I instead Gigantimax my Rillaboom.
    OH RIGHT I FORGOT NUMBER… UM I'll do a similar thing to Michael and pick the number of one of my favourite sports people 011, which is the jersey number of South Sydney Rabbitohs player John Sutton. I'm biased, I know :'D

  2. Type: Dragon, Town: Blackthorn City, 7th gym, Team: Noivern, Haxorus, Garchomp, Dragalge, Ace: Mega Latios (if legendaries are allowed), my attitude would be mostly carefree, never giving a crap about stuff until things get serious, even then i manage to keep my cool, Latios would be my main method of transport

  3. If I had a gym I would be electric cuz electric is my fave and my fave Color is yellow
    The Pokémon I would have on my team would be
    Boltund
    Raichu
    Electrode

    Battle style: double battle
    Pokemon I'd have:
    Ice – Alolan Ninetales (from Alola, thus has Icium Z as it's item)
    Mr. Rime
    Frosmoth
    G-Max Lapras
    Galarian Darmanitan (champion's cup)

    Puzzle: guess the right fossil Pokémon by the name
    Where: (new place) the rocky cave
    Hope you like the idea

  8. Thanks Michael for acknowledging those of us who are HOH with the colored lights. That's something that I have an issue with in games and it's nice to know that we're thought about when making video game ideas

  9. OK, that monotype gym leader thing ist nice and all, but it got boring after a few gens. What I'd like to see is a game where all the leaders and e4 members are using pokemon based on characteristics. For example a canine badge, a serpent badge, hoof badge… You get the idea. This way the teams could be more diverse and interesting to fight against.

  10. if get a chance to make a gym i will make synergy gym: it mean i want all type of pokemon it mean my pokemon is balanced so it make me so op

  11. My gym. Type: water. Gimmick: the gym is like a spiral tower and when you enter, and you have to enter a room with a crane-like setting where you have to grab specific items to drop onto a water pump to make something shoot up to grant you access to the next room but if the object goes too high or not high enough, you have to fight a trainer. This repeats 3 times. Location of gym: sootopolis city My team: pelipper (drizzle) :scald, hurricane, u turn and hydro pump , Barraskewda (swift swim) :liquidation, crunch, psychic fangs and poison jab , Barbaracle (tough claws) : shell smash, liquidation, stone edge and aerial ace , azumarill (huge power) : aqua jet, liquidation, play rough and superpower , and finally my ace gmax inteleon (even though it’s in expansion pass but I don’t care lol) (torrent) snipe shot, ice beam, dark pulse and mud shot. I’m final gym leader. Sorry if it looks messed :/

  12. A dark type gym in Lilycove City. I would have 4 dark types (Mightyena, Sharpedo, Tyranitar, Absol) as well as an Exploud.

  13. Type: Dark

    Theme: Deception and Trust
    Puzzle: Just a good old maze with invisible walls (randomly generated, based on trainer ID number, maybe?)
    Battles would be based around the Battle Palace, where you don't get to choose the Pokemon moves. Have it as a double as well, where the Pokemon have a small chance of hitting their own partner (lower chance based on affection or friendship)
    Team: Zoroark, Malamar, Zweilous/Hydreigon, Umbreon, Cacturne, Mega Absol

  14. My team will be:
    Blaziken (with Blazikenite) (it’s my strongest, but not my last)
    Cinderace (with Charcoal held item)
    Greninja (with battle bond)
    A Corviknight (able to Gigantamax) (this is my last)
    Zacian (With rusted sword) (this is my first)
    Decidueye (With Decidueye Z-Crystal)

    You would receive the Saturn badge for beating me

    And my jersey number would be 69 because that’s what it is in Sword

  15. the electric gym is really cool I'd definitely put that in the game if I made it, just 1 thing I'd give Toxtricity Hex instead of Discharge, Hex covers Toxtricity's Psychic weakness and he can paralyse/poison them with G-Max Stun Shock to make Hex twice as strong

  16. My Galar Steel Type Gym Leader Team would be as the 8th Gym with 5 Pokemon. Perrserker, Bronzong, Ferrothorn, Klinklang, and Corviknight. Perrserker would have Tough Claws and the moves Fake Out, Iron Head, U-Turn, and Close Combat. Bronzong would have Levitate and the moves Raindance, Iron Head, Zen Headbutt, and Gyroball. Ferrothorn would have Iron Barb's and the moves Iron Head, Power Whip, Leech Seed, and Earthquake.
    Klinklang would have Plus and the moves Shift Gear, Gear Grind, Wild Charge, and Charge Beam. And Corviknight would have Pressure and the moves Steel Wing, Brave Bird, Swords Dance, and Roost.
    My Elite Leader Rematch team would be the same but adding Melmetal. Their moves would also be different. Perrserker would have Crunch instead of U-Turn and be holding an Expert Belt, Bronzong would have Protect instead of Gyroball and be holding a Sitrus Berry, Ferrothorn would have Explosion instead of Leech Seed and be holding an Occa Berry, Klinklang would have Substitute instead of Charge Beam and would be holding Leftovers, and Corviknight would know U-Turn instead of Swords Dance and would be holding a Sharp Beak. Finally, my Melmetal would be able to to Gigantamax with the Moves Ice Punch, Thunder Punch, Earthquake, send Double Iron Bash and Holding an Asualt Vest. I would also be dressed up in clothes that have Silver, Gold, Black, and Red like Melmetal.☺️

  17. I would be a Water Champion with ( warning one-two names are french since I'm french ) :
    Greninja , Hastacuda , Dracovish and finnaly a G-Max Intelleon ( because I think G-Max Kingler and Torgamord (fr) are very ugly..

  18. My gym's most used type:Poison, (maybe steel.)
    Puzzle in my gym:A mixture between a maze and a guessing game (a random pokemon does it's cry and you have to guess which one it was, you guess correctly and the correct path opens up to you, which a gym trainer awaits to battle you)
    Region:Unova
    My team:Scolipede, Garbador, Amoongus, Crobat, Venomoth, Muk.
    Badge gained when you win:Toxic badge.
    My team level:60-70

  19. My Own Gym
    Type: Dragon
    Name: Liquidate
    Region: Hoenn
    Place: Lilycove

    Gym Puzzle: Trapdoors that lead to a cave and needed to be shut with levers on the walls to get to the gym leader, if you fall in the cave, you have to fight a trainer and behind the trainer has a leader that leads to the start like Wallace's gym

    Badge:
    Spiky Badge

    Team:
    Altaria
    Kingdra
    Dragonite
    Dragonair
    Pupitar
    Salamence

    Healing Items:
    Hyper Potion
    Super Potion
    Calcium

  20. I don’t know if anyone else realized J.J’s last name is watt, which could stand for an electric watt. I don’t know if he used 99 because of the last name.

  21. Trainer makes it to end Michaels electric gym

    Michael: "GREETINGS POKEFANS IM GONNA WRECK THIS MANS WHOLE CAREER"

    Trainer who has been binge raiding max raid dens

    Trainer: Maniacal laughter

  22. I’m surprised he didn’t say about his last name being Watt and he’s talking about an Electric gym for his league number

  23. If I were a gym leader, it wouldn't actually have a type, but rather a category. I want a Pokemon game to have this at some point. Like, a gym based around weather, sound, babies, Pokemon that are 100% male/female, genderless Pokemon, etc. Personally, I would do a signature moves gym, full of Pokemon that are the only ones to get a specific move. If I was limited to 4 Pokemon, I would have a Sirfetch'd, Morpeko, Grapploct, and my signature Pokemon which, in this theoretical sense, would have a Gigantamax form, Falinks. The gym puzzle would be trivia because, I like trivia. It would be based around signature moves, with questions like "Which Pokemon gets the signature move Volt Tackle?" or "True or false: Chewtle and Drednaw are the only Pokemon to get the move Jaw Lock?". Below are the movesets I would give my Pokemon. By the way, I'm ignoring learning levels, mainly because that kind of prevents a lot of signature moves like Meteor Assault and Aura Wheel, so we'll just say that I, as a gym leader, have a personal move tutor that can just teach my Pokemon moves that they aren't supposed to know yet.
    Sirfetch'd – I would, of course, give it Meteor Assault, but I would also have Brave Bird and Leaf Blade for coverage, and Iron Defense for, well, iron defense! It would have the ability Steadfast, not because it's useful, but rather because I'm not even sure if gym leaders are allowed hidden abilities. If they are, though, I'm definitely getting Scrappy, that's so useful.
    Morpeko – Aura Wheel, Agility, Brick Break, and Ice Fang, and the ability would, of course, be Hunger Switch. Easy!
    Grapploct – So, Octolock isn't too good, so what? Grapploct is cool and it has a signature move, so I'll use it, even if I have to sacrifice a slot that would usually have a better move in it. Other than that, we can have Submission, Octazooka, and Dig, and we can have the ability as Limber since Technician really isn't too useful for us.
    Falinks – And here we are, the powerhouse of my team. No Retreat is obvious, and it will actually be the first time a gym leader uses a move before Gigantamaxing. I will also have First Impression, Smart Strike, and Brick Break, keeping in mind the Max move versions of these, mainly having Brick Break for Falinks' G-Max move. The ability will be Battle Armor.

    In the champions cup, like Michael, my team would be the same, but I would add Hawlucha and Appletun.
    Hawlucha – Flying Press (duh), Bounce, Thunder Punch, and Swords Dance. Like Grapploct, it would have the ability Limber, but now it's actually useful since Hawlucha's weak to Electric!
    Appletun – Both of Appletun's abilities involve berries, which aren't allowed in gym battles, so it doesn't matter which one I choose, it sucks either way. I would have Apple Acid, Earthquake, Dragon Pulse, and Sunny Day.

    Sorry for the long comment, I just had a lot to say.

  24. I would be a normal type gym I would Have 5 Pokémon
    First I would have g max Snorlax
    And a Heliolisk also a Kanto farfetch'd as well as a obstagoon and finally a drampa

  25. My gym:
    Fire type
    Lumiose City (my favorite city)

    Team:
    Typhlosion (my favorite Pokemon, thus he would be my ace)
    Rotom-Heat (helps out with water types)
    Arcanine (he's just really cool)
    Coalossal (make use of the steam engine ability)
    Ninetales (drought plus solarbeam to take care of water and rock types)
    Chandelure (high special attack stat)

  26. Region: Galar
    Type: Normal
    Team:
    Eevee
    Jigglypuff
    Dubwool
    Cinccino
    Ditto
    Yes, Ditto is my ace. I will Dynamax it, and for some reason it will turn into the Gigantamax form of the copied Pokemon and not just the Dynamax. I know Jigglypuff isn't in the game, but I think it just works.
    The puzzle would be about seeing some paintings of Pokemon and finding the odd ones out. If you get it wrong, you will have to battle against a Gym Trainer.

  27. I'd be a poison type gym leader in galar, my puzzle would be to find an "antidote" for a doll, my number would be 869(alcremies number but i can't be a fairy leader cause it already exists) my team would be gengar,toxicroak, salazzle, skuntank, and a g-max yellow toxtricity. I'd say I'd be the 6 or seventh badge with a single battle platform and my badge would be the resin badge (a very VERY dangerous poisonous chemical)

  28. My gym would be ice/rock in an icy cave at galar
    My pokemon would be:
    Bergmite
    Crustle
    Mega glalie
    Omanyte
    Frosmoth
    Mega aerodactyll

  29. You inspired me to also do this, I don't post videos on YouTube, but I will post it on my Twitter, do you mind if I use the same pose as your character?

  30. If I were to be a gym leader, this will how it goes:

    Location: nacrene city in unova region

    Rampardos (sandstorm, head smash, zen headbutt, ancient power)
    Tyrantrum (sandstorm, ancient power, dragon pulse, draco meteor)
    Aurorus (hail, blizzard, ancient power, freeze dry)

    Challenge: (decipher the ancient symbols) (there are three books in each room, one will contain the answer so choose wisely. Find the right book on the said decipher) first room will be the unown symbols, decipher these symbols, decipher it wrong, you will challenge the trainer. Second room is deciphering hieroglyphics, and last room will be the gym leader's room, in order to battle me, you need to answer a certain riddle that I adore so much.

    Team:

    Weavile

    Cloyster

I really appreciate it that there are people out there like me. I apreciate your great content and you just being yourself. Keep up the great work Mikey!
