The title speaks for itself, pretty much.

Mine is Skyla, she's just so....good looking, and no, I dont mean that in a perv way.

Besides, she was like...the only gym leader I struggled with in b/w xD.

Please explain your choice(s) a little. No spamming!

28th April 2012, 2:46 PM
Skyla, she's just so....good looking, and no, I dont mean that in a perv way.

I like her, but in a perv way and same thing with Elesa XD

But my most favorite Gym leader is Drayden all the way. I may be a little bias since Dragon is my favorite type. I just wish they had him on pokemon white and not have Iris as it's gym leader instead... I can't stand her, especialy in the anime series :/

28th April 2012, 10:39 PM
Burgh I'm a sucker for Cloudcuckoolanders 2nd has to be Marashall ( I know he's not technically a Gym leader)

Aura Of Twilight
28th April 2012, 10:42 PM
I guess Elesa. She has a nice personality.

29th April 2012, 1:46 AM
Skyla. She's hot and easy to beat.

29th April 2012, 3:09 PM
I like Elesa, because her personality is cool. I also like Drayden.

29th April 2012, 3:17 PM
Mine is Drayden due to his awesome appearance as well as his specialization in my favorite of the seventeen Pokémon types, Dragon.

29th April 2012, 6:51 PM
Drayden. His appearance and Pokemon are too awesome enough.

29th April 2012, 7:23 PM
Either Elesa or Burgh. Elesa because her design is awesome, and she just looks so cool. Burgh because of his personality~

29th April 2012, 7:30 PM
My favorite leader was Elesa.

No reason, really. :/ She's super hot.

29th April 2012, 8:55 PM
Gonna have to go with Lenora... I liked the library. ;p

29th April 2012, 9:00 PM
Gonna have to go with Lenora... I liked the library. ;p

Skyla because she didn't seem to be a cliche.

29th April 2012, 10:42 PM
I think I'm the only Brycen fan there is...which is a shame.

Princess Raspberyl
30th April 2012, 4:32 AM
Elesa, Iris, and Skyla were my favorites. :3

30th April 2012, 4:42 AM
Yeah I pretty much like the same one's SapphireIris like's. :)

Iris' hair is soo cute <3

Archangel Azazel
30th April 2012, 5:47 AM
My favorite is Drayden and Elesa ^_^

30th April 2012, 9:18 AM
Skyla, she had an cool part in the story and an awesome gym

Mr. Reloaded
30th April 2012, 9:31 AM
My favorite is probably Brycen only because he actually can counter attacks unlike the others.

30th April 2012, 1:19 PM
I really enjoyed battling Elesa (...that's how you spell her name, right? o_O). Electric-type Pokémon are just fun, and she's also a good-looking character. So it was an all-around pleasant experience. XD

30th April 2012, 1:29 PM
My favorite leader was Elesa.

No reason, really. :/ She's super hot.


My favorite was Elesa as well, shes cute and she likes roller coasters, what a women! :p

30th April 2012, 4:00 PM
Probably Elesa as well. Cute, cool and with awesome Pokémon - always looked forward to challenging her and her gym.

Ace Of Keys
30th April 2012, 4:35 PM
drayden is pretty bad *** plus he seems pretty intimidating ;)

30th April 2012, 9:08 PM
Mine would probably be Clay, I like his cowboy appearance, and really love the mining gym.

cookies kill you
30th April 2012, 9:46 PM
hmm im thinking elesa skyla or brycen are all very cool but maybe one of the girls since there hawt

30th April 2012, 10:54 PM
Elesa,she wasn't very hard though..

1st May 2012, 1:15 PM
Dreyden and iris because i love dragon pokemon!
well and there gym is pretty easy imo.

4th May 2012, 12:57 AM
I like Burgh. Hes got bugs. And i love gym leaders who use that type for some reason xD

4th May 2012, 2:06 AM
I'd go with Elesa or Burgh.

Elesa's cute and had an awesome gym, plus she hits on the player. XD

Burgh is an artist so that puts him way up on my list. ^_^

4th May 2012, 2:15 AM
A tie between Elesa and Drayden. Elesa was the very first Unova Gym Leader that I liked, but Drayden took a while for me to appreciate. I also like Iris and Lenora, but they're not as cool nor as interesting as Queen Elesa and King Drayden. <3

4th May 2012, 3:21 PM
Iris and Clay They were the strongest teams but Clay wasn't even a challenge and Iris was only annoying.

5th May 2012, 6:34 AM
Drayden, cuz he looks cool!
Second is Skyla, she’s pretty I guess.

5th May 2012, 6:53 AM
Elesa and Skyla. Brycen, but because my Emboar laughed in his face, good times, good times.

5th May 2012, 7:07 AM
Skyla is hot challenging and has good plot around her as well.

Elesa because of reasons mentionned before in this thread.

6th May 2012, 1:25 AM
Elesa all the way! She's cool.

6th May 2012, 6:09 PM
Probably Elesa or Brycen, I like most Gym Leaders from these games but these two stand out for me due to their coolness.

6th May 2012, 6:14 PM
Elesa, she's beautiful and I love her personality.

The Unknown Twinkie
8th May 2012, 12:17 AM
Elesa is my favorite because she was hard to beat but I still beat her on the first try but it just took a lot longer then I thought it would.

8th May 2012, 2:05 PM
Elesa because she really helped bianca when her Dad wanted her to stop travelling and she's an electric type gym leader.Not to mention she's the only gym leader who beats me like 10-15 times in my first run on Black.

Skyla because she's cute

8th May 2012, 2:09 PM
Lenora had the best battle IMO, but Skyla is the cutest one.

9th May 2012, 1:25 AM
Brycen. I would say Clay, but in all actuality his gym would scare the stuffing out of me in real life. Ground types, especially since they can learn earthquake, in an underground gym? Yeah, not cool man.

9th May 2012, 3:55 AM
Skyla and brycen looked pretty cool to me

10th May 2012, 12:02 AM
Iris or Elisa.

I found Elisa a very nice and inteligent character, as well as very pretty. :) Plus she train's eleeeectric types, which rocks, too. But Iris was incredably cute and moe looking and also share's her name with a flower (but i dunno if i like her much in the anime. but her in-game personality is adorable to me^^).

10th May 2012, 9:14 PM
Elsa, I like electric types, especially hers, and she looks nice too

10th May 2012, 9:14 PM
Elesa, she's a dime.

Or the ice gym leader (mind blank!)

he's awesome because he is a ninja

10th May 2012, 9:20 PM
Homika and Elesa.

11th May 2012, 2:10 AM
My favorite is Brycen. He pretty much is the protector/ guardian for Icirrus City. He can sense the Shadow Triad. Just seems like the baddest personality and character wise of all the gym leaders.

11th May 2012, 2:28 AM
Skyla and Elesa.

Mainly because of what their Gyms look like.

Appearance wise, I'd have to say Brycen. His outfit is the best.

11th May 2012, 4:15 AM
Now that's a hard choice. Maybe it's Lenora, though I really really like Chili, Elesa and both Dragon leaders.

11th May 2012, 5:22 AM
Homika .

Worst gym leader ever.

Mr. Ribbles
12th May 2012, 11:35 PM
Worst gym leader ever.

This thread is mearly for opinion. Please try not to start unneeded arguments.

12th May 2012, 11:45 PM
Skyla and Brycen, hands down.

"Spite" DefaultAsAwesome
13th May 2012, 12:55 AM
Drayden or Elesa...

23rd May 2012, 4:52 PM
Mine is Skyla, she's just so....good looking, and no, I don't mean that in a perv way.

XD. I'm pretty sure there are a lot more like you out there somewhere. But seriously, mine is Drayden. He has a haxorus, Nuff said.

23rd May 2012, 7:34 PM
Elesa is my favourite followed by Skyla. My reasoning is that they seem to have more personallity, than the others. Skyla was shown to be a bit miserable and passionate about saving the Pokemon that landed on the room and Elesa is quite fiery and passionate about what she believes in such as suggesting Bianca needs to travel. Plus their gyms are pretty awesome.

23rd May 2012, 8:06 PM
Skyla, I like her design and she uses nice pokemon.

23rd May 2012, 8:23 PM
Elesa (hot :3)
Cilan - My favourite Anime character + his awesome Pansage

23rd May 2012, 9:43 PM
Clay, I liked his pokemon, personality, and his old western feel costume. He was pretty cool.

24th May 2012, 12:03 AM
Hard call. I like most of them, particularly Cilan, Chili and Cress because they're the only Gym Leaders who base their Pokemon on what you have as opposed to the other way around. I also like to draw, so that puts Burgh pretty high on the list. But I'll go with Lenora because she was the only one who really gave me a challenge. It helps when you don't have many Pokemon choices by then.

24th May 2012, 12:09 AM
Elesa is hot (especially in the animated trailer) and Drayden's just made of badass. Look at that beard!

24th May 2012, 12:09 AM
I like Lenora. She just looks cool.

24th May 2012, 12:48 AM
Lenora, Elesa, Skyla, & Iris were my favorites. All four of the female Unova Leaders I guess lol.

Clay was cool too, I have to agree that the Old Western/Southern feel to him was cool and unique for Pokemon.

24th May 2012, 5:01 AM
My favourites are Cilan, Chili, and Cress. I just tend to like first Gym Leaders a lot.

I've also started to like Brycen more too.

24th May 2012, 9:43 PM
- Fuuro, because I like her appearance, even though her clothes are the worst.
- Aloe, because I like her motherly figure.
- Yacon, for being a very unique Gym Leader.
- Iris, just because.

Pod also have a lot of style.

25th May 2012, 4:03 AM
Lenora and Chili.

-Aloe, because I like her motherly figure.
Pod also have a lot of style.
Exactly, both things. I think Lenora's motherly figure gives her a very dignified and powerful aura (even though she's just the second Leader).

25th May 2012, 4:18 AM
Even though she is just the second leader, she manages to be more challenging than most of the others.
Her Miruhog with Hypnosis and Retaliate and the Herrdier with Take Down are a pain in the ***, depending of your team.

25th May 2012, 4:21 AM
I kinda saw that coming, Normal-type Gym Leaders always seem to be the hardest ones. Yes, I'm looking at you, Whitney.

I really love Lenora design-wise and as a character, I was very upset to see her replaced by Cheren in B2W2.

(And look, they apparently got rid of both my favorite Leaders haha! Lucky much?)

25th May 2012, 4:36 AM
And there is Senri also, but I think Akane + Miltank and Aloe + Miruhog/Herrdier are harder.

Well, none of my favorites were confirmed yet.
Only Kamitsure was, who I couldn't care less about.

25th May 2012, 4:51 AM
I think it's probable your favorites will show up.

I hope they give Skyla a redesign, though... I don't know what they had in mind when they created those clothes, but that's not sexy, it's borderline vulgar.

25th May 2012, 4:55 AM
I like skyla and elesa...they are cool :D

edit: if i had a choose i would go for elesa :D

25th May 2012, 5:00 AM
I think it's probable your favorites will show up.

I hope they give Skyla a redesign, though... I don't know what they had in mind when they created those clothes, but that's not sexy, it's borderline vulgar.

I guess. They wouldn't drop them and reveal new gym leaders with a month or less to the release date... I think.

I hope for the same thing. I like Fuuro, but her """clothes""" are hideous.
That what I disliked in the Kamitsure's new design. Her hair is better and all, but what is the deal with that clothes?

25th May 2012, 7:10 AM
I really like Elesa and Drayden's appearance. While Elesa is a very attractive female, Drayden gets the edge because he uses cooler pokemon and is more of a challenge. Elesa's team is just annoying, though I barely remember my battles with either.

25th May 2012, 6:27 PM
My favourite is the guy in the ice gym and Lerona, awesome gym leaders :3

29th May 2012, 1:49 AM
My favorite was Brycen. He was pretty "cool." (I know, that was a horrible pun.)

29th May 2012, 1:56 AM
Personally, I don't have a specific leader to call favorite, since I liked all of them because they all had a personality and participated a bit on the game's plot.

30th May 2012, 8:10 PM
Lenora because ive never had so much difficulty with a gym leader since brawly in 3rd gen.

30th May 2012, 8:32 PM
Drayden is my favorite Pokemon 5th Generation Gym Leader & #39 on my "Trainer's List".

kadabra spoon
30th May 2012, 8:42 PM
brycen was the best. Yeah he was easy to defeat but he looked the coolest. and elesa was kind of hot i suppose...

30th May 2012, 11:53 PM
Elesa. Cool design, can be a pretty hard fight and electric is one of my favourites types.

31st May 2012, 12:40 AM
Noooo doubt about it. Brycen. He's just so cool :D
He's an athletic actor/monk, and by far the most good-looking old man ever in a pokemon game. Also, he's one of those characters who are just too cool to talk.
Red on Mt Silver anyone?

31st May 2012, 4:30 AM
Elesa for me, she's the coolest Electric Gym Leader ever.

Not to mention she's got a cute Emolga.

31st May 2012, 4:33 AM
It's got to be Elesa for me, by far! :D

31st May 2012, 4:42 AM
I liked Cress and Elesa. (Couldn't stand Clay; he beat me at least 5 times :( )

31st May 2012, 2:05 PM
I liked them all so didn't really have a favorite.

1st June 2012, 1:52 AM
They were all pretty easy, but Drayden and Clay where my favorites

1st June 2012, 1:56 AM
Elesa and probably Brycen

Howie Cheeto
2nd June 2012, 3:55 AM
Elesa & Drayden. I like their character designs and they gave a pretty good battle in-game too.

Ace Of Keys
2nd June 2012, 8:19 AM
I like kamitsure. i have a love for electric types plus i like how they showed her in the game and anime ;)

20th June 2012, 7:04 PM
Skyla, Burgh and Elesa,all tied. Love their designs, personalities and they've got awesome teams IMO.

20th June 2012, 9:21 PM
Drayden, gotta love that beard.

23rd June 2012, 3:12 PM
Skyla and Chili are my favorites

23rd June 2012, 3:24 PM
Elesa, Skyla, and Drayden.

Sworn Metalhead
13th July 2012, 1:04 AM
Definitely Skyla, she was so elegant, almost like a cousin of Winona.

10th August 2012, 5:23 PM
Skyla. She wasn't weird, and she didn't have any bad story parts.

10th August 2012, 5:35 PM
Drayden I love dragon types :)

10th August 2012, 8:30 PM
I like Cilan the best in general from watching Best Wishes.
But Drayden the best for his team of choice because I love Dragons.

Star Champion AJ
10th August 2012, 8:33 PM
Elesa and Skyla for obvious reasons!

21st August 2012, 5:01 AM
My favorite leader is drake in the last gym on black

21st August 2012, 7:47 AM
Skyla was probably my favorite

The Benmeister
21st August 2012, 2:32 PM

Not because I have a crush or anything, definitely not...

I also rate Burgh, he's just cool, plus he trains Bug types, one of the better types.

21st August 2012, 6:37 PM
I like Skyla. She can touch the sky. Whatever that means.

22nd August 2012, 6:20 PM
i must say iris :)

shes a good trainer, that becomes champion in B2/W2 :)

22nd August 2012, 8:55 PM
I like Skyala, she is hoT

12th September 2012, 1:38 AM
For me, it is a tie between Elesa and Skyla!

Plus side down side
12th September 2012, 2:16 AM
I didn't care for Iris in the anime, but I actually really liked her in the games. She was so sweet and cute! And she had some nice Pokemon

12th September 2012, 10:19 AM
Brycen is awesome!

12th September 2012, 9:27 PM
i like brycen his design is cool and ice type pokemon are one of my favorite pokemon

12th September 2012, 10:01 PM
Skyla. Having a lack of actual skill meant I lost to Cress, but for Skyla I don't actually lose the first time! :D

12th September 2012, 11:09 PM
I must be the first, but mine is Roxie, in Black and White 2, I like is style and it's a little different against the others.
If it was only in Black and White, I'll say Skyla. She's beautiful, and I like her face. Iris is tied with her as well. I love that little girl.

12th September 2012, 11:25 PM
My favorite is Cress. I like his look.

Toxic Nightshade
12th September 2012, 11:28 PM
My fav. is skyla because i like her gym style the best, even if your character gets thrown into a wall.

13th September 2012, 10:28 AM
Brycen cuz of Ice, my specialty, and for being a Star.
Following quickly after are Roxie and Marlon.
the rest is all um, well...

13th September 2012, 10:31 PM
I like Elesa <3 then Skyla :3 then Iris coz she and Elesa has Lyra VA lol ;p but now BW2 >.> Bianca did have Lyra's VA though, nya~

14th September 2012, 11:53 PM
skyla was my favorite in the 5th gen. i like flying types and i think the jet badge is cool looking

16th September 2012, 2:44 AM
Probably either the first gym trio or eighth gym duo for me.

21st September 2012, 3:33 PM
cilan,chili,and cress for personality. and they train monkeys :511: :513: :515:

22nd September 2012, 8:55 PM
Tbh, I think Elesa is hotter than Skyla but thats just my opinion xD.
Dude, her gym has freakin roller coasters! How bomb is that? Plus she's gorgeous and I love her character design in BW2 <3

Ace Of Keys
23rd September 2012, 8:04 AM
I like Dreydon the best. He seems very calm and collected and he used Dragons which is always badass

23rd September 2012, 8:45 AM
It'd be a tie between Elesa and Iris. Both of them were cool in their own way, which was great! Plus Iris becomes the champ in BW2, how cool is that?

23rd September 2012, 9:25 AM
Skyla. My bias for Flying types has appeared again.

24th September 2012, 12:20 PM
Brycen Becuase he's got a awesome design and one of my favorite types is ice.

24th September 2012, 12:58 PM
Skyla's probably my favorite, she's just badass :) Or Roxie, it's nice to see a musical themed gym leader.
Clay and the pan trio are pretty cool to
My least favorite would be Drayden, he's just a rip-off Santa...

25th September 2012, 1:22 AM
I like Elesa because she posed a challenge, looks good and also was in the anime episode I saw once. :P

25th September 2012, 4:29 AM
I like Lenora because she is a scientist :] :] Also Elesa is cool.

I liked Brycen because of his ninja look, I got very disappointed when gf made him just the movies character hachiku-man -____-'

25th September 2012, 5:11 AM
Probably have to be Clay. His stubborn and angry personality is funny. Although I said Clay, Iris' maturity is an admirable aspect.

25th September 2012, 5:20 AM
hmm I think both Elesa and Skyla are my favorite one , they are really just awesome and indeed good looking pretty women.

25th September 2012, 3:55 PM
Skyla, she is awesome! I beat her with my Boldore, but she is still epic.

25th September 2012, 10:10 PM
Favorite 5th Gen Gym Leader? I would say Drayden, I love dragons ^^ Though pretty upset to hear Iris was the gym leader in his place for White... That was an insult since I don't care for her in the anime at all and plus your talking about a Guy with a weird BOSS beard to a little girl with a oversized hair due.... So yeah :/

But now if were talking about favorite female 5th Gen Gym leader then it would be a tough toss up between Elesa or Skyla. I think there both good looking and not in a lesbian way... I like Elsa because of her personality and I like Skyla because I love to fly in the air, though I don't like airplanes too much, but I like being high up in the air ^^ But if I had to chosse between the two, it would be Skyla :) Also I'm sadden there was no decent fire gym leader and chili doesn't count! I want a fire gym like Blaine was or Flannery, but mostly Blaine. I hope 6th Gen will have a better fire gym and make the gym leaders tougher.

25th September 2012, 10:29 PM
Clay has to be mine. Partially because out of all the Gym Leaders so far he strikes me as the most American since Lt. Surge (whoo america!) but also he was the first gym leader in GenV that i went up against where i actually got to use my Samurott instead of catching and training some nonsense pokemon. Yay grudges! XD

Toyosatomimi no Miko
26th September 2012, 4:24 AM
I love Skyla and Elesa ;D They're awesome.

28th September 2012, 12:00 AM
Probably Elesa.

28th September 2012, 2:31 PM
Chili the flamer

29th September 2012, 6:28 PM
Burg!.... sexy clothing and leavany is awsome X3

30th September 2012, 3:37 PM
Marlon. A really nice design and an awesome.

1st October 2012, 1:10 PM
Elesa, she's a dime.

Or the ice gym leader (mind blank!)

he's awesome because he is a ninja

Actually, he's a theatre actor (kabuki, I think?). Yeah I know, I also used to think he was a monk or something like that, until I looked it up.

But yeah, he's my favorite too. Him and the dragon GUY. He's the first dragon leader to actually look badass. Gotta love his jaw-shaped beard :D

1st October 2012, 1:19 PM
Skyla- Finally. The last flying type gym leader was in Glenn

Roxie-I don't know why. She is just awesome :)

Drayden-Actually looks like a badass gym leader.

1st October 2012, 7:27 PM

I find her one of the best designed gym leaders, she also has one of my favorite gyms. Her theme in B2W2 is also my favorite.

She also was the toughest gym leader for me. That Volt Switch...

3rd October 2012, 5:43 PM
I really liked battling Cilan. I liked how the type of your starter Pokemon determined which leader you battled.

3rd October 2012, 6:57 PM
There are many awesome gym leaders in gen. 5.
I really like Skyla, Iris and Drayden, but Marlon too and Cheren yey :) Mh I like Elesa too.
It's hard to choose a favorite.

(Isn't every gym leader a 5. gen gym leader, thanks to the PWT? xp)

3rd October 2012, 10:50 PM
I really liked battling Cilan. I liked how the type of your starter Pokemon determined which leader you battled.
Many people were annoyed by this >,>

4th October 2012, 4:45 AM
Can I choose none? I've played every iteration of these games and this generation's game play and challenge is rather lackluster. I really just walked through this game four times, no challenge at all. The last two times i waltz'd my way through, i even challenged myself by picking a random type from a hat and using only that type from this gen. Still too easy. the only one who ever had any mediocrity was Clay. And that was only on account of weakness toward my all fire type team. black2's challenge mode better take up this slack.

4th October 2012, 7:38 AM
Defiantly Skyla. She just seems like a nice person, and I love flying types. Even if she was easy to beat, but that's probably just because I used a Zebstrika.

Gelatini Jejunator
4th October 2012, 4:21 PM
I think my favourite is Brycen, probably because I have a particular fondness for ice types. I love Cryogonal and Vanillish. :)

Mega Typhlosion
4th October 2012, 11:26 PM
I'll say Drayden. He's the Dragon Master! Not much more to say ^^

15th October 2012, 6:58 PM
Skyla, she has a nice pseudo-personality, plus she is a specialist in one of my favorite types.

I also like Clay and Chili.

15th October 2012, 7:12 PM
I'd say Elesa is my favourite, though Drayden is also quite cool.

15th October 2012, 8:19 PM
Mine would be Marlin, I like how he's totally laidback and talks like a surfer dude. Plus, it's pretty cool how he swims away after you beat him.

16th October 2012, 2:05 PM
Skyla. She's kind and has a cute personality in the games, and also looks cute and beautiful. And I like her Pokemon.

18th October 2012, 9:54 PM
Elesa would be my favorite with Skyla close behind.

19th October 2012, 4:48 AM
My favorite would have to be Skyla. Awesome gym, and an awesome character overall imo

Drayden. Hands down. Awesome Gym + Dragon-types = win

19th October 2012, 5:54 AM
Elesa, but I don't like her for the fact that she's a model, like the majority does.
I simply respect and admire the fact she's an Electric type user.

26th October 2012, 3:53 PM
mine is skyla there really cool and its fun the battle with them

What can I say? Elesa is beautiful and stylish but just it.
Burgh loves nature. I think I have these two as my favorite 5th Gen Gym Leaders, although a mix would be perfect.

23rd November 2012, 10:02 PM
I'd have to say Clay. The personal responsibility and no-BS attitude is very admirable, and I love that amount of character being put into a gym leader.

Drayden, you can't beat that bad *** beard.

27th January 2013, 12:15 AM
Drayen due to sheer awesomeness and Brycen because he's a freakin ninja!

27th January 2013, 1:08 AM
elesa , because she defeated me more than 20 times in the 4 games,she earned my respect as badass

27th January 2013, 3:10 AM
Drayden definetly. Himself, his use of dragon pokemon, and his awesome gym setup put him on the top of my list.

27th January 2013, 5:57 AM
cheren, because who really cares about looks anyway? i like him best because he was your b/w rival

28th January 2013, 5:50 PM
I love dragon types so drayden. (also i have black so i didnt get to battle iris...)

31st January 2013, 11:58 PM
I recently really started taking a shine to Cress... I actually don't like the 5th gen Gym Leaders that much. :\

1st February 2013, 12:14 AM
Skyla hands down. There's just something about her that's like wow. If she were a real person. I would be madly in love with her. I ain't no creep or nothing just admiring.

1st February 2013, 12:16 AM
It's a tie between Skyla and Elesa. I like the both of them and I really can't pick.

1st February 2013, 1:06 AM
Brycen & Skyla are my fav

1st February 2013, 1:39 AM
Elesa, Drayden, and Skyla. They're all pretty darn cool.

3rd February 2013, 1:06 AM
Skyla for her super-style, but I liked Iris too even if I had the Black version where she wasn't the gym leader...

3rd February 2013, 1:14 AM
Elesa... She's just awesome... But also I love Chili and Marlon because they are so freakin' hot!!!

3rd February 2013, 5:45 PM
I really like Roxie and her whole spunk and the music. Plus she looked pretty cool. Second favorite would be Marlon. I just like his whole style and how he behaves XD

4th February 2013, 2:48 AM
Lenora was great. She was great to battle, as well as aesthetics...

Crystal Power
8th February 2013, 6:44 PM
I can't choose! Lenora or Iris. I love them both. :)

9th February 2013, 6:12 AM
Drayden. I have no idea why, but whenever I see him, he gives me the thought of Galuf Halm Baldesion from Final Fantasy V... =O It must be how they have similar hair... =P

9th February 2013, 10:27 AM
I pick cowboy clay!

Kutie Pie
14th February 2013, 3:46 AM
Possibly Iris for me, though she wasn't much of a challenge once I trained my Druddigon a little. I honestly believe that had they not revealed early on in the game that she (in Pokémon White) was the last gym leader, she'd probably be a surprise. It's been a long time since we've had a surprise Gym Leader, you know? Though I do like her personality in the games, she was a real treat to have on-screen, though I can imagine she'd be pretty annoying at times.

13th March 2013, 11:33 PM
I'll go with Drayden here. I dislike most of the gym leaders in BW though.

*PKMN Trainer Paddy*
14th March 2013, 7:10 PM
I quite like Drayden from this gen. He has a cool beard and a pretty nice team. His gym is also awesome inside. Hes cool for an old man and the rest really do suck. (APART FROM ELESA)

Snorlax Max
14th March 2013, 11:05 PM
Drayden. He has a ridiculous yet totally fitting beard. Gamefreak did a great job on his design.

15th March 2013, 3:29 PM
Drayden's made of awesome. I wish my towns mayor was that badass.

15th March 2013, 3:52 PM
Drayden cuz why have mouth when you have mustache?
Or Skyla. cuz I'd fly my plane through her fluffy clouds any day.

21st March 2013, 10:01 AM
My vote goes for Drayden too. He's just so awesome looking. I like Marlon too. ;080;

22nd March 2013, 12:19 AM

Her emolga gave me some trouble though

23rd March 2013, 8:43 AM
I'm tempted to say Clay, but that's just because of some headcanon I made up for him; none of that's real. Going just off what's actually in the games, Burgh I guess.

23rd March 2013, 11:21 AM
Elisa simply because of the trouble she gave me
With my dewott, ducklet and swoobat

But I also love skyla!

Reborn Cyrax
23rd March 2013, 7:35 PM
Drayden. Gym = Awesome, Personality = Awesome, Battle = Epic. 'Nuff Said.

23rd March 2013, 7:50 PM
Clay. Would you rather get loads of money for mining something or just look beautiful? Yeah, Elesa is overrated. But Clay is cool and works all day long.

23rd March 2013, 7:53 PM
Elisa is my favorite Gym leader. :D And I love her Gym in white 2

23rd March 2013, 11:48 PM
Elisa,Clay and Skyla for the main reason that i had the most trouble with them and for their awsome gyms

30th March 2013, 3:59 PM
Elesa, perhaps, because she's hot ang good looking.

6th April 2013, 4:25 PM
My favourite is Cilan due to being your first big trial if you chose Oshawott and I liked his personality in the anime.

Ditto B1tch
6th April 2013, 5:35 PM
Elesa because she is strong and so beautiful in the meantime. Also, she is a model.

10th April 2013, 7:25 PM
Skyla or elesa. I swear if I was guy I would marry them both.
But elesa gave me a lot of trouble. She's tough. I'd battles her 23 times trying to bear her.
I just loved skyla's gym and personality and design.

12th April 2013, 12:29 PM
drayden, because dragon types are cool, he has an awesome attitude and the gym puzzle wasn't overly difficult.

13th April 2013, 7:37 AM
Skyla probably. Its just something about her dunno why.
Maybe Elesa but she is a pain to beat even the ground type moes wont hurt Emolga so she is tough so thats why I like Elesa the gym leader.
Brycn(forgot how to spell him) The movie actor ICE GYM LEADER! How epic does that sound? His beartic is a beast and Brychn is just awesome. (Though I though his team had fighting pokemon that was a fail but it makes sense)

7th May 2013, 9:17 AM
Elesa, Skyla or the last gym leader(s). I just like them.

7th May 2013, 12:32 PM
Elesa by a mile. Her gyms, in both gen V games, are the flashiest and all-around most fun, and her character model is the one that stands out as the most unique and memorable out of the entirety of Unova to me, not just among Gym Leaders. I also love how hard her Emolga
troll everyone on their first time through B/W. B2/W2's Memory Link scene with her and her new gym all helped me find her more appealing as a character as well.

As for Skyla, I've never really gotten the appeal. There's a lot of debates online going around on which of the two is the "better" character, and personally, I prefer characters who know what pants are.

The DragonKnight
12th May 2013, 12:20 AM
Clay for me. He was the most involved and the most memorable of all the Gym Leaders. I like Drayden as well.

12th May 2013, 12:37 AM
Mine are Elesa & Skyla

12th May 2013, 1:50 AM
Drayden! He's so cool, he gave me a hard time, and, c'mon, just look at that beard! He's awesome. Oh, and elesa too. She looks pretty. Also, roxie's pretty cool. She looks so crazy... That's what i love about her! Those are all, i guess. The rest are pretty awesome too! ^ v ^

12th May 2013, 2:49 AM
I really like them all. They all were very involved with the story and each one of them left their gym at one point or another. Besides Chili and Cress though. But they make up for that by having three Gym Leaders in one Gym. However, if I had to choose one, it would be Iris. I love her design to pieces and her personality was nice.

12th May 2013, 4:23 AM
Drayden, for reasons listed above.

16th May 2013, 10:16 PM
Chili. His personality, mainly. I love his hair too. Both enough to make me love him.

19th May 2013, 8:23 AM
burgh because his afro excites me

Janice Quatlane
19th May 2013, 8:30 AM
Creeeessss...... (He so hot, lol XD)


For battles and stuff, Clay.

I chose tepig, but it was on my other game, so I actually had to create a team with type effectiveness and stuff, instead of just using Umbreon.

22nd May 2013, 2:24 AM
Elesa did it for me. Simply being that she looks awesome & is a rockin' chick who is very attractive. Also the hardest of the Gym Leaders (for me, at least). Those fast Pokemon with Volt Switch made it hard to score a super effective hit.

1st June 2013, 11:47 PM
Elesa is pretty cool and has the most epic gym. Roller costers= awesome!! The others are cool too.

Cosmic Potato
3rd June 2013, 7:34 PM
elesa, roller coasters and not having a crusty old guy or hippie running the gym was new.

7th June 2013, 4:09 PM
...I almost completely forgot I like Brycen... ^^;
The absolute only gym leaders I really like in this gen are Cress (dat hair), and Brycen. Yea, they're cool.

7th June 2013, 7:03 PM
Skyla. She's beautiful, hot and yeah she has a cool gym.

17th June 2013, 7:46 AM
Clay is a good leader and skyla too

The Super Kid
17th June 2013, 7:13 PM
Chili and Skyla. I think they are my favourite gym leaders overall.

18th June 2013, 2:04 AM
Clay, as I liked the way he spoke (he reminds me of Hagrid), but I disliked his gym design.

20th June 2013, 3:36 PM
Elesa or Drayden. They're both so well designed!

22nd June 2013, 5:32 PM
I liked the fact that they all had a bigger part in the narrative than gym leaders usually do but even then, we don't really see much of them. I suppose I'll go with Elesa since she gave me the hardest time out of them all in battle and has a very iconic look and feel to her.

29th June 2013, 10:25 AM
Skyla! i like flying types!

30th June 2013, 2:08 PM
Elesea. I like her "shocking personality"

21st July 2013, 10:24 AM
It's a tie between Skyla, Roxie and Elesa, but I guess I'll pick Elesa. She's a hot fashion model and a great battler.

21st July 2013, 11:50 AM
Elesa seems to be the popular choice and I too enjoyed her design and battle style.

Brycen, though, was awesome! He had an very "ninja-like" style and I liked that. His Gym was also very creative.

My favorite would have to be Iris! One: I liked her in the anime & two: I thinks it's awesome how this little girl has these destructive Dragon Pokemon; it's just sick.

21st July 2013, 1:20 PM
I liked Burgh very much. I can relate to him, as I'm also an Artist. Clay was a challenge, and I liked him for that. Elesa was really cool.

21st July 2013, 1:22 PM
It's roxie. She's simply the best.

Lady Kuki
21st July 2013, 3:02 PM
Does Cheren count? If not then Roxie. c:

21st July 2013, 3:11 PM
BW Elesa, she's inspiring, and is the only GL I find hard during a normal playthrough.

Though in 2, if they made her just two levels higher and gave her Ampharos, or at least gave her it in Challenge Mode, she'd probably be even harder.

21st July 2013, 4:19 PM
My would have to be Iris she was gym leader in two years in game to pokemon champion

21st July 2013, 6:22 PM
Skyla, duh. She's alot cuter than Elesa. That's saying something.

21st July 2013, 11:09 PM
Elesa. The rest of the gym leaders didnt really stick out to me.

22nd July 2013, 7:02 AM
I'd probably say Elesa and Skyla for the obvious reasons that is fanservice and personality like most guys, but I can only pick one. So I'll pick Marlon.

Marlon kind of grew on me. His fashion and looks did get me uneasy, but how he comes off and his gym theme makes him pretty chill. Not to mention he wields water types. So I guess him and I will be surfing waves, swimming, and enjoying life. Like brothers.

24th July 2013, 3:40 PM
Brycen. I think his character was the most interesting! He seemed really serious about both battling and acting, I liked that.
Obviously Elesa seems to be popular. :') I also like her but mostly because she was most challenging for me to defeat.

26th July 2013, 9:26 AM
Elesa or Skyla. Both of the gyms were cool.

26th July 2013, 10:47 AM
Elesa, the three 'beauties' were annoying, but her flash entry was so awesome xD

27th July 2013, 12:08 AM
Elesa because I liked her gym and her design. Not so much about her team, though...

Swampert is my Homeboy
2nd August 2013, 12:25 AM
Probably Chili or Cilan, but I didn't like any of the gym leaders that much in this gen.

2nd August 2013, 12:27 AM
draydens gym.

Titanium Tyranitar
2nd August 2013, 8:47 PM
My favourite gym leader was Lenora as I like how you had to look in different books to find out where to go and i found pokemon to be tough without a fighting type to battle her with plus she had a cool sprite to :)

Marco The Phoenix
2nd August 2013, 8:59 PM
That's a tough question. It's between Elesa & Roxie. I'll go with Elesa.

22nd July 2014, 9:26 PM
Hm, mine would have to be Drayden. He was the only leader I had trouble with, and I liked his design.

Kitt Geekazaru
22nd July 2014, 9:57 PM
Brycen in Black.
Marlon in Black 2.

Skylander Sylveon
2nd August 2014, 9:53 AM
Skyla, Roxie and Lenora! ;D

Sky because... well... she's beautiful, has her own plane and has a set of cannons she can just load her enemies into and then slam them into a wall. >;D

Roxie because she is a rock star, a little brat, has her own city as well as a friggin den and she has poison types. <3

Lenora is first tho because she has a can-do attitude, her own secret entrance in a library in a museum AND is a archaeologist! ^^

8th August 2014, 4:57 PM
Elesa,especially in Black 2/White 2.I really ike her design and her Gym theme remix in the sequels-the rest of the remixed versions were just annoying.Also Cheren in the sequel games is an interesting character and I like the fact he assists the player many times.

10th August 2014, 1:19 AM
I liked Iris/Drayden the best because they were the most powerful. Second best is maybe Clay.

21st August 2014, 7:00 PM
Brycen because he seems like he knows kung fu.

26th August 2014, 9:25 PM
I really like brycen cuz he is a movie star who looks like a ninja

1st September 2014, 8:48 PM
my favourite gym leader from bw is probably iris because she's so cute :)

2nd October 2014, 1:10 AM
Either Elesa or Skyla. It's difficult to pick because they both have such awesome designs. But when it comes down to it, probably Elesa. Especially her B2/W2 design.

6th October 2014, 11:44 PM
mine would probably be skyla, her designs looks good to me plus she is adorable in my view

15th October 2014, 3:39 AM
Posting again...

My favorite would have to be Elesa. She has an awesome Gym in B2W2 and I always like her design. Plus, she says lame puns...that's always good for a laugh. xD

Erron Black
16th October 2014, 6:56 AM
My favorite would definitely be Marlon. I love water and swimmin so he's one of my favorites overall.

Scarlet Tactician
19th October 2014, 2:29 AM
Clay. I just love how he actually has hidden depths- he seems gruff, but he has his nice side and leads the charge against the sages near the end of B/W1. Plus, I'm a sucker for cowboy types period. The whole story of how he basically worked his way up and isn't even native to Unova is interesting, as well.

I also adore Iris a lot. She's just so lovable in the games and sweet, and I see her as sort of an honorary member of Hilda's (or Hilbert's, I guess) circle of friends.

Victorian Rush
20th October 2014, 12:28 AM
Definitely Skyla. I love her design and her personality, she's an awesome gym leader.

Banana Bloodplanet
26th October 2014, 9:05 PM
Elesa. I love her design, outfits, and boardwalk gym in B2W2. I'm also a fan of puns.

27th October 2014, 12:16 AM
Elesa. I love her design, outfits, and boardwalk gym in B2W2. I'm also a fan of puns.

All of that and the soundtrack is amazing af imo. Definitely flashy and very fun going up against other trainers in such high-style fashion.

29th October 2014, 8:12 PM
Brycen because he looked mysterious and tough to beat but when I came to fight him with my Moltres...it was quite easy for obvious reasons.

Miss Alexis
4th November 2014, 1:31 AM
I loved Elesa, she was an attention gatherer and she totally caught my attention especially with her style ^^
