Clichéd, as in, the mighty Dragons must be the final obstacle before reaching the Elite 4.How can Dragon in 8th place be a cliche, it only happened once before, 3 Generations ago, back in Gen 2.
I single out this gen specifically because not only are we denied another Poison Gym Leader yet again, but there is a meager amount of Poison-types in general.They hate the poison type every gen. There hasn't been a posion gym since Fuschia City if I'm not mistaken, and theres never really any powerful poison types, just look at competitive battling, apart from gengar who is mainly Ghost, no one really uses poison types as they are all really rubbish.
In one of the screenshots that was translated, Iris was visible and it was stating how the power of the Dragon wasn't ready to be tackled or something like that. I'll have to look it up to get the specifics. The building they were housed in was the Dragon Tower and you could tell where it was from the map of Isshu.Your evidence that she is plot centric is where exactly?
I'm guessing they choose Dento because as you can see from the anime clips, Ash gets a Mijumaru, logic dictates they'd follow the same pattern of facing the strongest type in the gym like in the games. Also Grass is generally seen as being before Fire then Water as in all pokedex's so they probably just picked the first one, and gave Ash Mijumaru so he'd be weak against Dento.
There will be Gym Leaders and they will have roles within the game. Seems pretty straight forward.It's great that you can "unabashedly" make such a bold claim without any evidence whatsoever to back it up.
Ah, that explains why I didn't see them. I remember that post of yours, but the links were dead for me.I posted some pictures from slowkingsley in the Confirmed info thread, which seems to be getting glanced over. It had that picture in there. They said it was from the new Famitsu though.
Clair is still the best. ;D Iris though has greatly pleased me since she was revealed in the anime, I hope every Gym Leader gets a Wargle, because it's the most epic Pokemon since Umbreon.8. Dragon
Iris. I knew it. this will be a badass gym with so many unique dragons in a generation and a real challenge. It deserves the last slot and should be the first Dragon gym where the leader actually does have a choice of different Pokemon. (I'm looking at you , Clair!)
It's the power difference, around lv 20 most pokemon are still the same, a lv 20 Dratini vs a lv 20 oh i dunno something random, lv 20 Noctowl, is pretty evenly matched, I'd even have money on the Noctowl to win as the early moveset for dragons is limited "twister all the way" but a lv 50 dragonite is much more powerful than a lv 50 Noctowl, so as to get the most power and challenge from the dragons, they make them the higher levels. Plus maybe it is a bit of a cliche but dragon is seen by many as the ultimate type ever since gen 2 really weakend psychic, it'd look odd to have any high ranking types early on. Like you never have a Ice type early on, or have a Psychic type early on. there supposed to be a tough challenge at the end.I guess I'm popular.

I don't care for 1st Gyms all that much, but the 8th Gym is usually meant to be a bit special. Gen 1 had Giovanni, Gen 2 had Clair and her dragons, then Blue and his crew, Gen 3 had the Water master-then-turned-champion Wallace, and in Gen 4 we got Volkner. Why couldn't the dragons be Gym #3-7? Why do they have to be the last Gym again?
And what exactly would there be sour grapes about? That's a saying for when someone is wrong and didn't get their way, and doesn't like it. I was just asking for evidence as I'd not heard this news before, and you backed it up with evidence when asked so I believe it. What exactly is there to have sour grapes about???There will be Gym Leaders and they will have roles within the game. Seems pretty straight forward.
Am I sensing sour grapes?
Well after Obama there's only so much change you can take.The gyms are kinda of dualhdear:
we were promise non-type dreams and we get the same ol same Ol
gamefreak is just lazy now and ready to make a quick buck
first gym should be
1. fire/water/grass(but you battle all three boys)
2. aloe(High Attack Team)
3. sunny day team
4. dark gym(since there needs to be one)
5. triple battle gym
6. Ground gym
7. High HP gym
8. Trick room gym
the gyms look really neat and pretty but they are stale
we already battle all of those in heartgold/soulsilver
time for a change game freak!
