    Default Favourite Unova Gym Leader

    The Unova region has quite a few Gym Leaders in the Black & White and Black 2 & White 2 games. Which one(s) do you like best?
    Note that only 10 options are allowed on a poll, so some options had to have more than one character.
    And I forgot to make it multiple choice... *head desk*

    Please explain your answer a little. No spamming!

    Personally, I like Cheren. I am a big fan of his BW2 design as I find it quite cute.
    I also like the Cilan/Chili/Cress trio for pretty much the same reason.

    For me it's Roxie ! & the Poison Band lol. I thought it was cool how there was an old Rock n roll band Poison. I was raising a Nidorino at the time for the sole purpose of Toxic Spikes. I like poison , the order of the fights where you must challenge the band members first , imagining the music slowly fading out one member at a time. And last but not least the fight on Hard mode

    Gotta go with Marlon on this one. He was such a hunk in B2/W2, and I liked his Aquaman-esque design. But I also loved Elesa and Roxie since they were gorgeous, and Iris was so cute too.

    IDK. I would say Roxie on design, but for my favorite battle, it'd have to be Elesa, simply because it's the hardest gym for where it was in the game. Everything before it gave you hardly anything to hit Emolga with. It was slightly easier in the second games, but still a pain.

    I'll go with Elesa.She has a cool design and I like her Gym design and remixed music theme in the sequels.

    I like all of the Unova Gym Leaders, but I like some of them more than others. My top favorites are Clay, Skyla, Elesa, Iris, Marlon, Cheren and Roxie... that's still half of them, I guess picking a favorite is harder than I thought.

    I like Clay because of his involvement in various businesses in the game, like the PWT and the Clay Tunnel. And I think his hat is cool.
    Then Elesa because she is an inspirational character, most notably for Bianca in B/W. She is also a supermodel with both looks and intelligence which is great.
    Skyla because she is sweet and fun and I liked going to the top of Celestial Tower to find her there.
    I like how Iris goes from being a Gym Leader (in White) to being the Champion in the sequels. While this wasn't unique since it had been done before with Wallace, I think they made it well this time too. And it was a bit different since it was done in sequels this time around as opposed to a third version.
    Marlon was a really cool guy, I liked his attitude towards Team Plasma, different from all other characters which was interesting. And he seemed to be so energetic in addition to being a skilled swimmer.
    Roxie was cool because of her design and she plays in a rock band which is awesome. I'd listen to her music if that was possible.
    Finally, I liked how Cheren went from being a Rival in the first pair to being a Gym Leader in the sequels, great idea and they did it very well.

    All in all, I have a hard time deciding. But I'll vote for Clay as my absolute favorite on this poll.

    I have a preference for Marlon. He's such a juxtaposition by having a cool and calm demeanor for being the final gym leader.

    Out of those, I'd say Roxie. She was cool, even if the "music" from her band sounded terrible in a comical way. As far as Pokemon gym leaders go, she was pretty unique. Poison type is one of my favorites I wish it wasn't such a weak type though.


    I can even tell what you're thinking right now

    Drayden, Dragon types are cool and always a challenge. Always enjoy a good battle with a Dragon user gym leader.

    This was a really hard one considering i just really didn't like any of the designs of any of the gym leaders in the generation. I ended up deciding on Marlon though. I thought his gym was one of the more visually pleasing ones out of generation V and his design was simple, yet good. Probably a close 2nd for me is Brycen. I liked the layout of the gym itself, and with the exception of his mask, enjoyed his design relatively well.

    Wouldn't really pick any normally but I've chosed Burgh simply because the gym music that plays in his gym is amazing.

    I like Marlon a lot, too. I liked his personality as he just seemed like such a nice person. Plus, his design was pretty good imo and I liked his hairstyle.
    Also, his Gym was one of my favourites in BW2. I found it very relaxing and I liked using lily pads to get around.

    Mine is Skyla. I love her design, she's pretty.
    And her personality, Her flying planes for the player takes the cake.

    Skyla seemed pretty cool. I dunno what it is, but the female gym leaders for the Flying type have really seemed cool and have caught my eye. I also liked the concept behind Chili, Cilan, and Cress, but I could only vote for one. xD

    I couldn't grow to like Skyla as much since I thought her outfit was too risque. In fact I recall shading her often and praising Elesa's design over hers when B/W were released.

    I liked Drayden and Iris because they are both Dragon type users and my favourite type is Dragon! Also, they were the hardest and last Gym Leaders in BW (though Drayden was the 7th Gym Leader and Iris was Champion in B2W2).

    Elesa in both BW and the sequels that was actually somewhat challenging, so she easily wins.

    I like almost all the gym leaders in Unova so it's hard to pick a favorite. I like Elesa a lot from the cut scene with Skyla from the memory link.
    I really should get a real sig...

    Usually I go for the cool older person (Claire, Blaine and Pryce all being amongst my favourite leaders) but in gen V Clay edges it out over Drayden. Asides from his cool design and helping you out with progress in place of HMs (scrapping the need for HMs for the entire main quest was probably BW's strongest decision), he's the first leader to show up to take on the seven sages.

    Skyla. One of the only gym leaders suspected on having a crush on you, had cannons in her gym, blows you back to start in B2W2, and flies you around? Yeah SKyla wins.

    I like Skyla, too, mainly because of her Gym in both sets of BW games. I love getting shot out of cannons in BW1 and I like the music in her Gym in BW2.
    Also, her name is very similar to mine irl.
