    Yes! Precisely! NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE NORMAL TYPE. And to clear the ar, yes, Whitney was known as the hardest Gym Leader back during the reign of Gen 2. Secondly, I would simply faint if they had a normal type Champion! It would be utterly amazing!!! Seeing as the normal type is by far my faveorite typing. Normal types have only 1 weakness, the Fighting type which normally don't have a lot of bulk or at least not as much as Normal types do. Normal types are also only resisted by rock and steel which can be tooken out by a fighting type move - (every normal type can learn at least 1 fighting move) and they can't touch ghosts, but again that's not much of a problem, do to Scrappy abilities and Normal types naturally have massive movepools anyways. Normal types are deffinatley a force to reckon with.

    Actually, in japan, Fantina isn't characterized as being french, like she is depicted in the USA. So that's a bit of a toss up.

    All this Fantina talk... it's never actually confirmed in-game that she's from France, is it? All we know is that she is from a place where they speak French as their main language. She could be from the Seychelles or Monaco for all we know.

    Well, as for Gym speculation...

    I'm hoping that when choosing types for the gyms in this region, Game Freak will pick types that haven't had many gyms in the past, rather than giving us yet another water gym and yet another electric gym, for example.

    However, there is then the trouble of including too many gym types that have already been seen recently. For example, Bug and Dragon haven't had many gyms, yet we've seen them both recently in Unova, in both the originals and the sequels. Then you have Rock, which has 3 gyms to Bug and Dragon's 2, yet it hasn't been seen since Sinnoh so it could feel like another rock gym is "due". Hmmm.

    Well, gyms I'd like anyway are (in no particular order)...
    Poison - We've had a Poison gym recently, but only in Black and White 2, and other than that no gym since Kanto, so I think Poison could do with another gym in X and Y.
    Psychic - Psychic has only had two gyms in total, and none since Hoenn back on the GBA, so I think a Psychic Gym is due.
    Ghost - Ghost in total has only had two gyms, and the last one was Sinnoh, so another Ghost gym would be welcome.
    Fire - Fire is one of my favourite Pokémon types, and while Striaton Gym could technically count as a Fire Gym, it didn't feel like it. This is obviously because of the fact that Striaton was also a Grass and a Water Gym, so really it was like it was only a third Fire, a third Grass, and a third Water. On top of this, it was only in Black and White, and not the sequels (where *ahem* water got another gym) - heck, the Gym Leaders weren't even that significant then, unlike the other 7. So basically, what I'm saying is, we haven't had a proper Fire type Gym since Hoenn, and there is only Kanto before that, so I think it's time for another Fire Gym.
    Grass - Similarly to Fire, Grass has only had two Gyms when Striaton isn't included (and really only 2 & 1/3 when it is). The last grass Gym we had was in Sinnoh, and there is only Kanto before that, so it's also time we got another Grass Gym.
    Steel - We've only had two Steel Gyms so far, one in Johto and one in Sinnoh, so another Steel Gym would be great.
    Rock/Ground - This is a case of preference I guess. We've had three rock gyms in the past - Kanto, Hoenn, and Sinnoh. With no Rock Gym in Unova we've had a welcome break from the almost traditional Rock type first Gym, and now there's space for a new Rock Gym in X and Y. As for Ground, we've only had two Ground type Gyms, one in the original Kanto games and their remakes, and one in Unova. So while it could be argued that a Ground Gym would be bad as we've just had one, it could also be argued that Rock has had more Gyms, so a new Rock Gym would be bad. Rock and Ground are similar types anyway, so I honestly don't mind which one gets chosen (if one does get chosen), as long as if it's rock, it's later on in the game and not the first Gym again. :L

    Hmm, I wonder if I've missed any...

    Oh yeah.

    DARK - Wow, this type has been so overused in Gyms, hasn't it? I mean, we've had so many, a grand total of... zero. Needless to say, we are extremely overdue for a Dark Gym, as not one Gym since the type was introduced back in Generation II (Johto) has been Dark. Yes, three Elite Four members have used the type, but Ghost has also been used three times, yet it still has two Gyms currently. I don't even care if any of the other types I listed don't get Gyms, and we get stuck with another Electric Gym and another Water Gym (4 and 4 & 1/3 Gyms respectively, by the way), I will be extremely happy as long as we get a Dark Gym.

    So, that's my rambling about Gyms done anyway.

    As for the Elite Four, I think Grass would be good for the first member if we didn't have a Grass type Gym. But, since I've already suggested Grass as a Gym...

    Flying - For the first Elite Four member, I think Flying would be a good type. It is often viewed (or so I've seen) as one of the weaker or more average types. However, there are many strong Flying type Pokémon, and this would allow for some dual types that aren't just Normal/Flying to be used. This could lead to the player having to face some unexpected but powerful Pokémon (Gyarados, Gliscor, Togekiss, Skarmory, maybe even Dragonite).
    Electric - The second Elite Four member could use Electric type Pokémon. This type is good offensively, has only one weakness, and has many powerful Pokémon. Since there isn't an Electric type Gym in my suggestions, this would allow for the type to really shine in the Elite Four. Add in the fact that we could get some great dual typing for Electric types in this generation, and you could have a formidable opponent here.
    Rock/Ground - Whichever of these types doesn't get a Gym, it would be a great typing for an Elite Four member. They are both great types, and have access to many powerful moves and Pokémon. No Elite Four member so far has specialised in Rock, so this would be something new. Plus, the type has access to powerful Pokémon like all-out attacker Cranidos and psuedo-legendary Tyranitar. Ground is, however, arguably the more powerful type, as it is super-effective against more types (including Rock), has access to Earthquake, and also has many powerful and varied Pokémon, such as Excadrill, Swampert, Flygon, and psuedo-legendary Garchomp. I'd be happy with either type, but Ground would probably be more suited to the Elite Four.
    Water - Great offensive typing, and a wide variety of great Pokémon. We've already had a Champion specialising in Water types, and it is definitely a strong type, so I think it would be ideal for the final Elite Four challenge.

    And as for the Champion...

    Normal - I hadn't even considered a Normal type Champion before reading the last page or so of this thread, then I realised, holy crap, that could actually be really difficult but awesome. A Normal type trainer would be perfectly suited to being the Champion. Only one weakness, access to many powerful moves, large movesets, many bulky Pokémon. I think I've always underestimated the Normal type until recently. Normal type Gym Leaders can be some of the most difficult, especially in the PWT, where I have been beaten by at least Norman before. But there are many powerful Normal types the Champion could use - Slaking, Blissey, Stoutland, Togekiss (again)... yep, would definitely be up for this challenge.

    Ok, rambling done. Those are my ideas anyway.

    Dude, I think that it'd be cool, but I don't think Pokémon will ever have more than the typical 8 gyms unless a lot of people worldwide beg for more gyms. The tier idea... I'm sorry, but I just can't see it happening.
    I am a fire pokémon fan.

    See, I don't have B2/W2, just Black. Never bothered, at that time Pokemon was at a low point in my priorities. But... I've quoted a rant about the region in the legendary thread, and want the idea out here too. It's going on about Norse myth Pokemon:

There's so much to do, and they could have the big famous train station in Paris be the Battle Subway, and the sewers of Paris be where Muk, Garbodor, Haunter, Sandile (Crocs of NY Sewers except in Paris, which they should of done for B2/W2 Castellia Sewers) and other Ghost/Rock/Water/Poison Pokemon roam. Just a thought.

    Double Audino can be battled in B2/W2. You need Cheren with you, though. And that's in Pinwheel Forest, which is a post-game area.

    But I like the idea of having shaking double grass that lets us battle double Audino on our own.

    YES!! Vive les Canadien!!! (I probably spelled something wrong there) still, I doubt that they're going to make a Canadian region anytime soon (hoping for it though!). I think the closest we're getting is Unova (and that's the US). It looked like they had Le luvre in the newest commercial, as with big ben and something like L'arche du triomphe... I know I spelled something wrong, but I don't know what

    LOL I couldn't imagine her being from there.

    But I do have a feeling that this new region is based off of France.
