    Ampharos should be on her team over those two.. or Flaffy they're both kind of feminine and Ampharos even bares a resemblance to her old outfit.

    Yeah, I forgot about Denryu. It fits Kamitsure more than Dentula, at least.
    But being feminine doesn't mean much... Arty with a Hahakomori proves this (And that's why I think he will have a Beequen, other feminine Pokémon)

    I've noticed...
    People forget that Skyla, who uses flying types, could have a Vullaby/Mandibuzz.

    I think, the teams will be:
    Cheren:
    Lillipup
    Patrat (main)

    Homika:
    Koffing (main)
    Trubbish

    Burgh (or other):
    Whirlipede/Scolipede
    Leavanny
    Vespiquen (main)

    Elesa:
    Emolga (yes, She should keep ONE Emolga)
    Flaffy/Ampharos
    Zebstrika (main?)
    Tynamo/Elektrik (main?)

    Shizui:
    Simipour*
    Ludicolo
    Dewott/Samurott (main)

    Clay:
    Excadrill
    Krockorok/Krookodile (main)
    Dugtrio
    Some other Pokemon

    Skyla:
    Unfezant/Pidgeot
    Skarmory
    Braviary
    Mandibuzz (main)

    Drayden/Iris:
    Dragonair
    Haxorus (main)
    Druddigon
    Shelgon

    Also, what if Hihihiroshi (the japanese fan name for the rival) does a Gary/Blue where he becomes the Champion?

    Simipour is the water monkey, Simisage is the grass one.

    Or, people just don't like Vullaby.

    I think, the teams will be:
    Cheren:
    Lillipup
    Patrat (main)
    Patrat was the first sent out, meaning it's not his "main." The main is pretty much never the lead.

    Homika:
    Koffing (main)
    Trubbish
    Same as above, the main is never the lead.

    Burgh (or other):
    Whirlipede/Scolipede
    Leavanny
    Vespiquen (main)
    Since Burgh's Whirlipede was illegal in the first games, I highly doubt he'll have a Scolipede unless the levels of each Gym Leader are beefed up considerably.

    Elesa:
    Emolga (yes, She should keep ONE Emolga)
    Flaffy/Ampharos
    Zebstrika (main?)
    Tynamo/Elektrik (main?)
    I feel like Zebstrika would be the main over Tynamo, but that's just me. (Actually, I'd prefer Ampharos be her main, but that's also just me.)

    Shizui:
    Simisage
    Ludicolo
    Dewott/Samurott (main)
    Assuming you mean Simipour. Honestly, even though he's not a Leader this time around, I feel like Cress's main is Panpour, so it makes less sense for Shizui to use one. Also, unless they add a Fire-type Leader whose main is Emboar and a Grass-type Gym Leader whose main is Serperior, I don't think Shizui's main is going to be Dewott or Samurott.

    Clay:
    Excadrill
    Krockorok/Krookodile (main)
    Dugtrio
    Some other Pokemon
    Isn't Excadrill his main?

    Skyla:
    Unfezant/Pidgeot
    Skarmory
    Braviary
    Mandibuzz (main)
    This team is mostly impossible. Rufflet and Vullaby evolve into Braviary and Mandibuzz respectively at level 54. Again, unless levels are beefed up considerably (and in Skyla's case it'd be about twenty levels from BW), Braviary and Mandibuzz would be horribly illegitimate. I think it's more likely that she'd keep Swanna in the place of those two, and that those two would appear in a rematch team.

    Drayden/Iris:
    Dragonair
    Haxorus (main)
    Druddigon
    Shelgon
    I personally dislike the overabundance of pseudo-Legendaries in this game, but that's just me.

    Also, what if Hihihiroshi (the japanese fan name for the rival) does a Gary/Blue where he becomes the Champion?
    That'd be seriously cool. I'm not sure why this isn't a more popular idea.

    I don't like the idea of the rival becoming the champion for some reasons:

    - I prefer men/women being the champion, like Daigo, Shirona and Adeku, over kids (Green). It is cooler and since I am not a kid anymore, it is easier to me to relate to them.
    - Repeating what already happened with other rival? Why?
    - I still wonder who was the champion who Green battled in RBY/FRLG.
    - Green is the character I like the least in the franchise, I wouldn't like to see people comparing the new rival with him.

    I never actually thought of that. Huh. (S)He should show up in BW2

    I really don't see how this would be a problem. People have already compared the two, but from what we know of the new rival by now, he's kind of like Barry (in that he's a friend of the player) and he's a caring older brother to a sister (who is apparently taken by Team Plasma at some point?). He's totally separate from Blue, and comparing the new rival with Blue wouldn't hurt the new rival's personality or anything. :S

    Because it makes more sense? An adult have more experience, etc...

    Yeah, she/he should. I guess Game Freak does not even remember that they didn't reveal the previous champion of Kanto region.

    People have already compared the two? o.O wow, what I see is people comparing he with Silver, even the color scheme of them is similar.

    It is not a problem in general. Only to me, because like I said, I can't stand Green and his arrogance. You see, people treat Green as the deus ex machina of the Pokémon World, but he isn't even the strongest trainer of Kanto to begin with. Oh well, I am going offtopic with this.

    Experience does not always come with age. A 10 year old could be more experienced than a 20 year old. You are just biased at children being champions, admit it.

    Not in the Pokemon world, it doesn't. Experience doesn't really matter much with Pokemon Trainers. Age is obviously helpful, but each game shows that the best trainer in the world is always a child (or adolescent): the player character. Besides, I was mostly arguing that if the problem with BW2's rival being Champion was that it was repeating what had been done before, than repeating what's been done since Gen II would be simply atrocious.

    It's because when we only had his art to go off of, he looked slightly evil, and possibly just a bad-*** type. So, people assumed his personality would be a little more cold or jerk-ish, making him like Blue.

    @Grei: Yeah, you have a point, the PC becomes the champion in every game, but they are clearly special cases. You see, almost all Gym Leaders, E4s and Champions are adults or young adults. The reason for this is pretty obvious. Can a kid become a Pokémon master? Absolutely, but if this task were so easy to accomplish, all the games would have a lot of kids as Pokémon masters.

    Talking about champions, my wishes for this position are: Renbu, N, Touya/Touko or Adeku again.

    Or if they want to put a kid as the champion again, I'd rather see Iris in this position.

    I really hope Homika gets a Scolopide to go along with that koffing. I really don't want an easy gym battle.

    Roserade has a terrible movepool if you evolve it early on. Scolipede can outrun pretty much anything that early in-game and it has good attack as well.

    Well Roserade could pretty much out-speed anything as well and it had high special attack They could always make Scolipedes it's move-pool crappy as well.

    This, Scolipede is too much a Whirlipede and Koffing or a Trubbish and Koffing would be just fine for her.

    I suggest using two vs two, no type advantage, no using items of any kind in battle, I'd assume all that could give you a hard time for the battle, after all battles are as easy or hard as you make them.

    If she's going to have Venoshock then I'm sure she'll be even harder to beat, just make sure you don't use a Magnemite.

    EDIT: Also, having Pokemon around the same level(Preferably lower) would do wonders probably.

    Well if not a Scolipede then at least a Wheezing or a Seviper would fit well.

    Truth is I kinda do already make it hard for myself and it was still really easy. The only gym leaders that gave me trouble in the original Black/White was Lenora and Elesa. I never once had a problem with Skyla, Brycen, Drayden/Iris no matter what my team was.

    Heck who knows they might give you a psychic type like Ralts or something to so you can have an advantage against her gym.
