    PWT isn't even canon...

    But I don't see a problem with using a legend and I would like to use Genesect in my Bug-Type team.

    Zigzagoon-Most random encounter... i was looking for a normal wingull/swellow and sort of stumbled upon it
    Psyduck-Sort of just training a venesaur against some golduck and a pretty blue psyduck came along (Now a Golduck)
    Ekans-1 hour After a blue psyduck i was walking from vermilion city to lavender town and stumbled into the grass (purely by accident) and found a nice golden ekans. (Now an Arbok)
    Gyarados- yes... the shiny everyone has.
    Volbeat- Another one i sort of stumbled on... training a snorlax above the resort area

    I would probably be a ghost type gym leader. My gym would be a really dark gym with a maze. You would be given a black candle and a match at the beginning of the gym. In the gym there would be Litwik guides. Follow them... At your own risk... I would be the 8th gym.
    My Pokemon would be:
    -Gengar lv 51
    -Mismagius lv 48
    -Chandelure lv 49
    If I could have a mixed team like Blue/Green, I would want
    -Gengar lv 51
    -Alakazam lv 48
    -Weavile lv49
    The gym would stay the same.

    I'd be someone who specialises in status ailments, with a generally defensive team to troll challengers and make them watch in frustration as their status ailments chip their health away bit by bit or render them helpless. I'd ban the use of any ailment-curing medicine too, of course. I'd probably have a Fire-Type, an Electric-Type, a Poison-Type, and an Ice-Type. I'll decide the Pokemon later, I suppose.

    I would be a Dark type Leader, my gym would be simple; defeat all the trainers as you climb a winding staircase to get to me, the gym would beautiful (maybe something smiler to Grimsley's room)
    I imagine only 3 pokemon would be allowed 1st time around, I would probably have Sharpedo, Houndoom and a Shiny Absol as my signature pokemon <w

    Legendaries would be too challenging to use in a normal gym match.

    Its hard to say for sure; it would depend on where the gym was located. For example, I might like to use Dragon types but if the gym is close to where the majority of trainers are new then that'd probably be rather unfair. Likewise, using normal types right at the very end where most trainers will be high levelled is just askoing to get smacked down by fighting or psychic types. One must strike a balance in these things. The purpose of a Gym Leader isn't to win -- its to test trainers who come again you. Indeed, the ideal end for a battle is for you to lose to a skilled trainer. In essence, you aren't supposed to win, you're just supposed to fight.

    So, taking that in mind I think that if I were a high-end Gym leader I'd make use of the dragon type. Dragonite, Garchomp, Kingdra,Flygon and Charizard (Because Charizard should be a dragon, damn it!) If I am top tier, I don't need to hold back as much since any trainer coming against me will by definition have defeated everyone else and be ready for a real fight.

    If, on the other hand, the majority of trainers are weaker where I am, I'll go with water types. Horsea/Seadra (depending on the trainers level) Politoad and Starmie.

    I'd go with Ground types, since they're a bit under-represented in Leagues, and maybe be 4th Leader-ish. I'd use a team of

    Pupitar
    Shed Skin
    Rock Slide/Sandstorm/Scary Face/Dig

    Gligar
    Sand Veil
    Dig/Acrobatics/Faint Attack/Screech

    Golurk (ace) @ Sitrus Berry
    Iron Fist
    Magnitude/Shadow Punch/Defense Curl/Rollout

    Yes, Golurk does have Defense Curl and Rollout. Suck it.

    Trainers who defeat me would receive the Terra Badge, as well as the TM28 Dig. The Gym would be located in a cavern, and I'd be surrounded by a maze of stalagmites. To progress to certain parts of the maze, you must battle the Gym Trainers to make the stalagmites recede back into the ground.

    I'd probably be a Dragon-type gym with:

    Charizard
    Dragonite
    Gyarados
    Haxorus
    Aerodactyl
    Kingdra

    I'd probably style my gym after a museum-type motif, like Lenora's.

    My Gym would be a Water type Gym set on a luxury liner. I'd be the 8th Gym Leader and I'd run a full team of six.
    My team would include:

    Seismitoad
    Starmie
    Lapras
    Poliwrath
    Vaporeon
    Blastoise

    -Zebstrika

    Also if I were allowed to use a legendary, I'd use Zekrom too (why not? Some gym leaders actually do use legendaries in some of the download tournaments for the PWT).
    Adding on to what I mentioned earlier, this team would actually be my rematch team. For my gym battle, I'd probably be roughly 5th-7th, and my team would be something like this:

    -Raichu
    -Galvantula
    -Jolteon
    -Zebstrika

    I'd probably remove either Raichu or Jolteon if I need to cut my team down to 3 Pokemon.

    My gym puzzle would involve wires somehow, IDK exactly how. I was thinking a puzzle that involves connecting electrical circuits that power up conveyor belts, and depending on how they're connected, it changes the path. I haven't exactly figured out how that would work, though.

    I'd be a Fire-type gym leader, probably the 7th or 8th in the region.

    My team would probably be Typhlosion (definitely), Camerupt, Chandelure, Arcanine, and Houndoom.

    My gym would be inside a volcano, with a puzzle similar to the Humilau Gym's.

    Ahhh yes. A Gym Leader thread. I'd be a Water Pokemon Gym Leader, using this team:

    -Starmie (Ace)
    -Staryu (Lead)
    -Milotic
    -Vaporeon
    -Gyarados
    -Lanturn

    Not a bad Water type team. Gyarados and Lanturn almost made my team, but in my opinion, Gyarados is too common for Water trainers, and Lanturn is too slow.

    I know Gyarados is kind of overused. But, I was thinking about using a Starter instead, but I had to reconsider. And Lanturn's used if someone tries to use an Electric Pokemon or move.

    I'd be an ice type leader.

    Glaceon
    Froslass
    Jynx
    Starmie
    Mamoswine
    Beartic

    Starmie would probably throw people off and help cover some ice weaknesses.

    Greninja, Venusaur, Blaziken, Raichu, Tyrantrum, Mr. Mime

    I suggest using Lapras over Starmie, in that case. Starmie is Water/Psychic, it doesn't have an Ice type.
