Watching the game trailer, I noticed that there is a Cool Trainer in Shizui's gym. Cool Trainers don't really start to appear until mid game, so maybe he's one of the later gyms? Also it looks like you battle that evil scientist guy too...so maybe he's a gym leader?
You know your name better than I do. YAY!
If we get new gym leaders, I want a new champion and Elite 4. I really like Shizui's design, and we seem to see him a lot throughout the game

I have claimed Empoleon, Rosalina, and Super Mario Galaxy!
I don't understand people believing that all Gym Leaders will be replaced.
The pre-League Gyms seem to be: Homika's Gym, Shizui's Gym, Driftveil, Nimbasa, Castelia, Mistralton, Icirrus and Opelucid (not sure about the order, though). I don't see why would they replace all of the Gym Leaders in the returning Gyms (I'd say no more than two changes in returning Gyms, but they might all just stay unchanged).
Icirrus is covered, that might mean that Brycen could be replaced. But it's a really far-fetched conclusion (and I'm personally not believing this).
Striaton and Nacrene Gyms will seemingly be available post-League. If the theories about Striaton Brothers are true, then Striaton Gym Leader will obviously be replaced. I'd expect the new Leader to be a returning character, possibly Cheren or Bianca (or maybe even Hilbert/Hilda).
2. Why do they cover each other? Hell, as a perfectionist prick I can't accept this.
After 12 years of being a Pokemon fan, I'm officially quitting the fandom. This is not a rage quit and it has nothing to do with the Pokemon franchise. It's also NOT a sudden decision - I've planned it for months but I decided to stay a true, active Pokemon fan until the very last day. The reason for my leave is the fact that I'm starting my studies at the Uni and I decided that it's a perfect moment to move on with my life. I'll never forget all these awesome years and Pokemon will always be a part of my childhood memories. Goodbye friends! Thank you.
And if I'm ever back, I'm never back for good.
I like the idea that the Nacrene and Striaton gyms have become just a museum/library and restaurant. Nacrene's library could be a Canalave library-esque thing where the ancient myths of Unova are explored. I'd like it you could fight the Striaton trio in a triple/rotation battle though. Maybe your efforts will have them re-open the gym.
Looking at the map, I can identify the location of the log huts Shizui is seen in front of, perhaps they are hidden until the ice
Look, if you had one shot, or one opportunity
To seize everything you ever wanted-
Would you capture it or just let it slip?
I think that the first gym leader will be Shizui. Look at the map: http://cdn.bulbagarden.net/media/upl...Unova_B2W2.png. The grassy area with river and his hut is right after your hometown and a small town. I suppose his team will contain Lotad. Next is a city with a harbor and I think there will be the poison gym. And I suppose there will be gym leader re-battle feature and when you re-battle Homika she will have Scolipede...
I suppose that I made some language errors :P! My english is not perfect.

Assuming that Striaton is no longer a Gym and if it turns into a restaurant, is it possible that this may be the place where the Gym leaders meet up for a rematch? I remember there was such a place in HGSS, but I don't remember where exactly.
And, would it be unwise to look into the possibility of the E4 making some changes?
Platinum has a "Battleground", and it's a small cafe.
HGSS used the Fighting Dojo in Saffron for rematches.
IF the Striaton Brothers are no longer Gym Leaders (poor guys, they were novices in BW, and they already gave up the position?), they could manage the cafe and turn it to something similar. Good idea!
If they replace/ add another Gym I hope it's a Dark type
What Pokemon do people think Homika and Shizui will have? Obviously it'll include making guesses as to what Pokemon may be in the regional dex.
Homika - Venipede seems likely (with Screech). I'm not sure which other Pokemon fit... maybe Stunky or Koffing?
Shizui - I think Psyduck/Lombre/Azumarill/Remoraid/Corphish could be interesting choices. None of the 5th gen water types seem to fit, except perhaps Panpour.
Looking at shizui's hair he will most likely have Sharpedo.
Looks like the gyms are gonna be 8, I can't find anywhere under the ice where they could fit another 6 gym cities, although they seemed to fit 3/4 cities in such a small space so we'll see. What I assume is gonna happen is that the gyms are gonna go:
New Rock Leader in the Mountain City
That yellow building next to the plane landing looks to be a gym, so yeah.
According to the map: http://cdn.bulbagarden.net/media/upl...Unova_B2W2.png, Lenora's and The triplet's gyms have been frozen over. So has Brycen's. The ice MAY be there for show, but that would mean that there's 3 new gyms. Homika's gym is said to be located south of Driftveil, so I don't think she would be the first gym. Lenora and Clay, while unlikely, could become a double team if her gym is frozen, and the triplets either have a new gym(in that case, THEY MUST BE A TRIPLE BATTLE >.<) or open a restruant where you can rematch gym leaders or people you help throughout the journey (Like Riley, Buck, etc. from Platinum)
EDIT: They may make Shizui (did I spell it right?) the first gym if the triplet's are no longer a gym. Brycen.... is screwed
