well totodile (waninoko) was only used in one gym and the rematch in Jhoto.
I'm expecting him to take part in at least 5 gym battles in total by the end of the series.
That means he needs to be used in all by one of the remaining gyms. Not sure if he should sit out the electric gym with clemont or the grass gym. I'd rather see him take part of the grass gym, with a new pokemon, pikachu, and another new pokemon or one of the birds fighting in that one. I can see Frogadier do well in the ice, psychic, the fairy gym if he is not evolved into greninja by then.
I don't get your logic,because he lost against his first fairy type opponent,he won't do well against the fairy type gym leader?That doesn't make sense.Given how he flopped against his first Fairy-type opponent, I doubt he'd do well against Valerie tbh. I'm not sure why Frogadier would need that much Gym battle screen-time anyway.

Also he flopped because of Attract,not because Sylveon was a fairy type.If it wasn't for that he would have won.
it'll be a different ball game against other new Fairy types, and past Pokemon that he's used to only considering from other type angles that now also have the Fairy typing.
I think that Origins explained it the best. The Gym Leader assesses the challenger and chooses Pokemon based on the perceived strength of the challenger. Things that are considered are gym badges, how long they have been traveling, bonds with pokemon etc. Ash's gym battles have become increasingly difficult because he is such a veteran trainer and the Gym Leaders and adjusting their own pokemon's strength and strategies accordingly.
i sometimes wonder if the gym leaders know who Ash is, having seen him battle on tv in previous leagues, or if word travels from other people traveling through the various regions, gym leaders having friends in other regions, etc, and that may explain how and why it sometimes appears the gym matches are a little tougher each new series.
I wonder that to. We know that many of the gym leaders in Kalos seem to know one another, so word may indeed travel amongst them.
I can say, Ramos already looks to be more competent then what many others predicted he'd be. I'm glad that's the case, he's my favorite of the Kalos gym leaders.
Wasnt said gym leader a beginner at mega evolution? Every other mega evolution, ash has lost to.When the gym leaders are so terrible as to lose to a pikachu using a mega evolution, you know they've hit rock bottom difficulty.

I do think however that gym battles are tougher and more engaging to me than previous battles.
