ITT make your own ideal gym team. It can describe yourself as a gym leader or be some OC you cooked up
>Normal mode: Include your type, which Pokemon you use, general theme
>Hard mode: Actual movesets for your team based on where you fall in the gym leader roster (e.g. if you're a fourth gym leader, you should only have 4th gym difficulty etc)
>Overachiever Mode: All of the above plus badge name, detailed gym puzzle and pre/post battle dialogue
Rate/hate/etc based on whatever criteria you like
>A sandwich chef who specializes in the Fighting type. To make a perfect sandwich requires speed, care and physical aptitude; this Leader brings these traits to the Gym as well. He fancies himself an artist and believes certain things must be done in a perfect manner.
>TM: Low Sweep. It's my favorite move.
>The gym is a warehouse of various food products and paper goods boxes. The food products can be pushed around like a strength puzzle. Only by arranging the foods in a proper sandwich row (bread, sauce, veggie, meat, bread, IN THAT ORDER) can the player move on to the gym leader.
>Before battle: "Welcome! To make a perfect sandwich takes a lot of care. But what about a hundred? A thousand sandwiches? That takes momentum! I take it you want a battle? I'll serve one up right quick!
>After battle: "Every battle is a balance between momentum and care. You've displayed a perfect balance. Here it is, your Toil Badge!"
>Local mobster looking to get into the gym running business, sees potential for good money in battling trainers.
>Gym Puzzle based around gambling.
>Literally all of it is 100% luck.
>You have to pay a certain amount of money to progress through the checkpoints to reach me.
>You can either battle a trainer for the exact amount, or gamble to win more with what you have.
>If you don't win the roulette you will obviously be forced to fight, but it is possible to win all 4 roulettes and reach me without fighting anyone.
"Hope you brought a lot of cash, kid, 'cause I plan on taking whatever you got."

>badge is the hardship badge
>gym leader is a grizzled soldier who did whatever it took to win, learning that sometimes the best path in life is hard to find
>Before battle: "I see you made it through my gym! Did you learn just how horrible battling with status holding your pokemon back was? Show me how you face life's challenges, trainer, prove to me that you deserve this badge!"
>post battle (Trainer win): "When you do whatever it takes to win, you learn what real strength is. Take this badge, and this TM, and keep going until you cannot stop!"
>post battle (GYM LEADER WIN): "You'll need to try much harder than that if you want to succeed, friend."
Gives toxic TM.

Donphan (lv. 40)
Krookodile (lv. 42)
Torterra (lv. 45)
I think at least the last three gyms should have a full team of competent and interesting Pokémon, they're already at a heavy disadvantage from being monotype. Wulfric has 3 Pokémon, that is just sad. (Jesus Christ, does his Abomasnow only have 3 moves?)
Type: Grass (7th)
Puzzle: Transforming terrain
In order to navigate the gym, the player must change area sections to specific terrains in order to overcome obstacles. Wind to blow away sand, flooding magma and freezing lakes, etc. The final gym battle is done in grass terrain (not the move).

>Intro: This world is a vast one, every nook and cranny offering new experiences and new perspectives. Will you allow me to witness the results of your life's journey?
>Defeat: Sometimes, even your best will not suffice. Perhaps you can discover another road that leads to your goal.

Badge: Horizon Badge.
>A woodsman who specializes in grass types,
>an intricate series of logs that you have to cut down or move (using cut and strength) to create several paths over ravines
Upon initiating battle
>I've been through every kind of forest inthe world kid, and and I've got the Pokémon to show for it. Time to cut you down to size!
Upon Being Beaten
>Looks like I don't need to sharpen the old axe yet, I've still got it!
Upon Beating Him
>Wha-?!?! Looks like I need to go sharpen the axe kiddo. You're good, I'll give you that. Here's the Lumber Badge, you've more than earned it.
I like it, could always use more quirky fighting type leaders
A ship captain by the name of Cutter
The inside of the gym if made to resemble a beach, with the middle of the room being flooded with salt water. There are patches of sand around the gym's edges and an island in the middle where Cutter waits for the trainer to appear.
The player is given a choice of boats which he/she must pick in a correct order to reach Cutter. Incorrect boats take the player to beaches where other trainers wait to battle. Process is repeated until player reaches Cutter.
Upon Cutter's defeat, player is allowed to use Surf.
"Ahoy! What is a young lubber like you doing in this here waters? I harnessed the power of the storm with Water Pokemon! You think you can stay afloat against me?!
"I'm all washed up! The tide of battle turned in your favor! You have earned your sea legs, here take the StormBadge!"
>After being defeated
"The StormBadge doubles your Pokemon's speed! It also allows you to use Surf anytime! TM18 contains Rain Dance! Teach it to an aquatic Pokemon!
Red is for Challenge Mode stuff, like in B2W2. I feel like this might be a tiny bit too strong, I was aiming for 6th/7th gym.
Normal, but a Doubles Battle. Eighth Gym. Based on cheating. Gym leader is a stereotypical computer nerd. So they all have one illegal move or ability that makes them somewhat hard but doable by a 10 year old. I thought about the type being Dark, but all people lie and do bad things.
>Mega Pidgeot with Sing
>Porygon2 with Adaptability
>Ursaring with either Sheer Force
>Smeargle with Prankster and four random status moves
>Bidoof with Swords Dance
>Pyroar with Competitive.
Badge: Digital Badge
Afterward, the leader closes down the gym and vows
>Theme: Puddles of "poisonous" liquid around the gym, have to stop leaks by arranging pipes to pass certain areas
>Moveset: Nothing specific, but all of them know Toxic and Facade. Haunter knows Hex.
>Gym number: 4 or 5
>Badge name: Noxious Badge
Honestly the level/strength is kind of subjective and depends on the game. Those levels would be fine for FR/LG, but would be really high for something like XY.
tfw no challenge mode ever in any new pokemon games
>gym leader is a young man with a passion for bobsledding
>gym puzzle is a complex series of bobsled runs on snowy slides that lead you down to the next level, with a trainer battle awaiting at the bottom of each slide
