Dawn was a one off which is what made it interesting, this would be doing 8 times and it would be annoying around the third time. Plus they would only be able to make one of th ebattles for each interesting I'm assuming, instead of 8 gym battles they would need to do 16why the same?
the gym leader would have 3 good pokemon , together 12 moves to choice.
If there would be a day or two pause between battles , for one we could get a mega, while the other could be a diffrent kind.
+ gym leaders would change strategy depending on oponent and pokemon they battle.
mostly in games we had gym leaders with more pokemon that werent used then in the anime.
+ many pokemon would need to appear.
In XY the fairy gym didnt use two good fairy type pokemon like Mr Mime and Mawile.
In Diamond and Pearl the fighting type gym and Dawn were ok or not?
Gym leaders adapt their team based on the trainer yes... but that's based on number of badges. If Ash and Girly McGirlFace walk in and face the leaders in the same order they will face the exact same Pokemon. How is the leader supposed to know what Pokemon the challenger is using to be able to adapt? they just ask how badges they have (this happened for Ash with Roxie and was shown also in Pokemon Origins and mentioned in the games as a thing that happens). Unless Ash and Girly travelled separate and we saw them face them in a different order so that we see different Pokemon, there'd be no point and it would be awful, unless I guess every gym battle is in one episode and we only see parts of them to avoid repeats.
