    Default If you were a Gym Leader or Elite Four, what type of pokemon would you use?

    I would personally use normal type pokemon because they have a large moveset and most of them can learn psychic type moves. I mean, Whitney should be chamption of Johto/ Kanto! Imagine she had a Clefable instead of Clefairy or an added Blissey or Snorlax?

    I would use...
    Togekiss
    Clefable
    Snorlax
    Kangaskhan
    Blissey
    Miltank

    What about you?

    Milotic (Surprise!)
    Slowbro
    Cloyster
    Gyarados
    Vaporeon
    Lapras

    I'd honestly use Poison. It's a very hard type to break, as it has 2 weaknesses, and great defensive stats.

    Weezing
    Crobat
    Gengar
    Tentacruel
    Venusaur
    Nidoking

    Psychic

    Espeon
    Hypno
    Solrock
    Alakazam
    Metagross
    Lunatone

    Mainly because they have VERY high Sp.Atk/Atk and some of them have decent speed (Espeon)

    Flying types, obviously. Pidgeot would be my "trump card" Pokémon (assuming I was an advanced enough gym leader to have evolved Pokémon).

    I'd also use Xatu (one of my favourites), a Swanna, and maybe a Rufflet as my standard "weak" addition to the team.

    It would be epic.

    (Hope it's fine for having those two 5th gens in there. XD)

    So tough, since my favourites are spread all over different types. But I think Psychic type has the most Pokémon I like, plus Psychic powers are pretty cool.

    Team pre-Elite Four
    -Meowstic♀ - Light Screen, Reflect, Psybeam
    -Espeon - Attract, Swift, Psybeam
    -Kirlia - Double Team, Hypnosis, Psybeam
    -Kadabra - Recover, Calm Mind, Charge Beam, Psybeam

    Team post-Elite Four
    -Meowstic♀ - Light Screen, Reflect, Thunderbolt, Psychic
    -Espeon - Attract, Calm Mind, Dazzling Gleam, Psychic
    -Reuniclus - Substitute, Recover, Calm Mind, Psychic
    -Gallade - Swords Dance, Drain Punch, Night Slash, Psycho Cut
    -Gardevoir - Calm Mind, Wish, Moon Blast, Psychic
    -(Mega) Alakazam - Recover, Calm Mind, Charge Beam, Psyshock

    Ice Types for the win!
    However, not all my pokemon are Ice. A trick up my sleeve! But, they all know Ice Beam or Blizzard.

    - Empoleon
    - Lopunny
    - Mamoswine

    They may not pack the biggest punch, but I'd use bug types! They're my favourite.

    -Heracross
    -Butterfree
    -Scizor
    -Shuckle

    Sure, I'd probably get laughed by the big bad trainers of the higher gyms, but I'd have my little buggy buddies so I'd be perfectly fine with that.

    I'd use something like this:

    -Sceptile
    -Scizor
    -Mantine
    -Magmar
    -Hitmonlee
    -Steelix

    And about the first post: Togekiss wasn't released until Gen. 4. So, you'd probably want to say Togetic.

    I'd be one of the first gyms preferably the first I would use Flying types (I've been reminded of how deadly they are )

    Dragon types for days. I'd probably also use dragon-like Pokemon, too, like Gyarados and Charizard. I don't know the full team that I would use, and I don't have the patience to consider it.

    I would probably be an elite 4 member, and I would specialize in Dragons and covering their weakness. I would also allow the opponent to choose wether they want to do a double battle or not.
    My pokemon are:
    Dragonite
    Latias
    Flygon
    Starmie
    Swampert
    Poliwrath

    All 3 dragons have a different subtype to give a variety and to throw the opponent off, as each dragon has slightly different weaknesses besides dragon and ice, which they all have. Also, Latias and Starmie can recover, so I think it'll be a pain for the opponent and Starmie can use thunderbolt, great for dealing with pokemon like walrein, and I just like starmie more than milotic... everyone in the battle tower seems to have one and that just annoys me. I would love to put in kyogre over any of the water types, but I think that would be unfair. Latias, at least, is beatable and used in the battle tower.
