We may have a creepy Pyromaniac leader, a mystical burn victim leader, or a hot-headed athlete leader. There ar still some good names for Fire leaders, like Iggy (ignite), Charles (charcoal), Cindy (incinerate), Topher (maybe rhyming with stove), Owen (rhyming with oven), Fern (inferno), and Blair (rhyming with flair). Maybe we can have a nicknamed leader like how Wake was the Sinnoh water leader's wrestler name.
I'm hoping for the E4 to be:
If I'm right, Water and Flying have never been E4 types (but Water's been a Champ-Type.) You'll never guess what this one's based off of! *Sarcasm*
It's the types of Genesect's drives, so all four will have a Genesect with that drive lulz!Electric's never been one, and either has Water. Ice has been once, as well as Fire once. I got it off of the fact Fire and Electric are similar (Heat and Light) as well as Water and Ice being similar. (Ice is frozen water!)
Alright then, I have a little bit of personal time so I'm going to give a list for what I think will be the types for the gym leaders/ Elite 4.
Reasonings: For Grass, in the trailer we got shown that gym in which puzzle can was a giant web, leading towards it to be either a grass or bug type gym, based on what GF wants to do. I feel grass would be better, since we already had a bug type Gym last gen, and I feel having too many returning gym types would be a little redundant. Ground is because of the low amount of ground type gyms we've had, even if we've had one last gen, that wasteland area makes it look like there might be either a ground or rock type gym around there. I choose normal here for the big city, maybe as a gym that you return to after a certain requirement, but I feel like since this region is hypothetically based on France, a normal-type gym leader who's into fashion and other popular trends might be an interesting idea. Also, I felt like Lenora and Cheren really didn't fit the roles of a normal leader well, Lenore would of benefited better as a rock leader, and Cheren was like a warm up, unlike Whitney.
Dark type here should be obvious here, as we haven't had one yet. Also, in Europe there are a lot of myths about the night and other things, so it would be interesting. Also, Europe's history is notorious for wars that haven't exactly been fought fairly (Do the Tudors and Byzantine Lightning ring a bell, anyone?). Poison seems to be an interesting one for me here, personally. I feel like that this time it's more of going to be a sort of mental poison, as France itself is a very beautiful place. Maybe it's a femme fatale, as they say? Steel is here because of someone is trying to do a deduction based off of patterns. I've noticed we've had a steel type gym every even numbered gen, so it seems logical X and Y should have one as well. Maybe as a double battle gym?
Psychic is for that gym with the magic flooring in the trailer. It seems like the gym's built on fantasies and mind games, perfect for a little kid. Maybe we might have the psychic leader be the first Gym Leader younger than the player? (Liza and Tate were a little older, if I'm right...) I choose Ice for the French Alps, and to bring in a sort of winter aspect to the game. Europe does usually have a more milder temperature than Japan and America, so I can expect that an Ice type gym leader would be a nature choice for this.
I feel like Electric would be an interesting type in the Elite 4, and hasn't been done before. Maybe it can be a female leader named Eclair? (Eclair means lightning in French) With a foot motif or something, I don't know but I feel like we're going to have a light-hearted E4 this gen, and Electric seems to fit it. There was that fire place shown in the trailer, so I'm wondering if that's a dungeon or possible on of the elite 4. Maybe a play on death with Chandelure as their ace? Water would also be interesting, sort of bringing a calm to the elite four. Maybe it can be a play on France's beaches? Flying also hasn't been done before, and I feel like if the leader was influenced on times of day it would be nice. Overall I feel like the E4 this gen are going to be different than the last.
we are not dreams. we are the waking
If I could pick anyone, I would want to see an older Bugsy (the Bug type has MUCH improved since we saw him last) and maybe Sidney as the Dark type gym leader we've been wanting. I also think a former evil team member would be cool to see as an important character. An Archie/Maxie double battle water/fire gym would be badass. Probably the most ridiculous idea ever but I still think it would be cool.
Black Lives Matter
I like the girl cause, she has long hair and cool clothes.The boy looks almost the same, exept for the hat;p
Anyone else hoping we get another Gary-style douchebag rival?
It'd be so cool if rather than him/her just automatically getting to the gyms/elite four before you, it was actually a race against time, and he/she actually reacted if you got there first.
Plus, if you hadn't re-challenged the Elite Four for a while, you could turn up, only to discover that your rival had snuck in and taken your title away, giving you a bit more incentive to go back to the Elite Four, rather than just using them to grind for experience points.
Well, on Rivals, what I have been blathering about the entire time still stands:
1 Female "Gary"
1 Male "Bianca/Barry"
1 ??? (genderless?) "Hugh/Lucas/Dawn/Lyra/Ethan"
1 PC you didn't pick as Rival
and one Large French Fries
You know something I really like from Gen. 5 was the strong trainers post league they must add this again!!
Specially let us battle the rest of the Gamefreaks board members: Satoshi Tajiri (Have the poliwag line), Ken Sugimori (Have a Zekrom) & Junichi Masuda (Have a Victini with Surf)
After-game stuff is usually not canon. The PWT definitely isn't. Any Pokemon or character can show up.
To right the countless wrongs of our day, we shine this light of true redemption, that this place may become as paradise. What a wonderful world such would be...
JUST A COUR'PSE OF A DIFFERENT COLOR♥
It just came to me. If I were working on this game, I'd make a female, Latina Ground-type gym leader named Yolanda. Boom!
Seriously though, the only female ground type specialist I've seen is Bertha. I think there should be a female ground type gym leader.
Also, I'd like more rivals, and for them to have more diverse teams without the Starter + 2 early route pokemon + pokemon that cover the other 2 starter types + 1 unique pokemon (Silver + Wally are the only ones to negate the formula, Cheren and Bianca negate the rule by only having 4 EARLY GAME POKEMON!!!!!! then 2 unique).

You know what? What if, like you can choose if your character is male or female, the same option is available for rivals, and depending on the rival, the storyline could change. A girl rival who's a total b*tch and a dude who's really cool and laid back. I want them to keep the preset names.
