    I would personally use normal type pokemon because they have a large moveset and most of them can learn psychic type moves. I mean, Whitney should be chamption of Johto/ Kanto! Imagine she had a Clefable instead of Clefairy or an added Blissey or Snorlax?

    I would use...
    Togekiss
    Clefable
    Snorlax
    Kangaskhan
    Blissey
    Miltank

    What about you?

    Interesting thread! I think I'd use Water types since I like a few of them. Here are the ones I'd use.

    Milotic (Surprise!)
    Slowbro
    Cloyster
    Gyarados
    Vaporeon
    Lapras

    diamondpearl876 → soul sick.

    I'd use electric types.

    Raichu
    Electivire
    Lanturn
    Ampharos
    Luxray

    :)

    Aura Of Twilight Forever Clueless

    Haha Its hard to decide, but I guess I would use:

    Absol
    Umbreon
    Shiftry
    Houndoom
    Sabelye
    Tyranitar

    I'd honestly use Poison. It's a very hard type to break, as it has 2 weaknesses, and great defensive stats.

    Weezing
    Crobat
    Gengar
    Tentacruel
    Venusaur
    Nidoking
     
  6. PrismaticPrincessAnna

    PrismaticPrincessAnna I'll do my Lilliest

    I'd use Variety:
    Swampert
    Altaria
    Pikachu
    Manectrike
    Minun/Plusle
    Meowth/Linoone

    nya~
     
  7. SasoriSand

    SasoriSand Master of Sand

    Psychic

    Espeon
    Hypno
    Solrock
    Alakazam
    Metagross
    Lunatone

    Mainly because they have VERY high Sp.Atk/Atk and some of them have decent speed (Espeon)

    I will be a Ground Type Gym Leader

    Sandslash
    Quagsire
    Rhyperior
    Excadrill
    Donaphan

    Also the Pokemon are from different Generations.
     
  12. 32er

    32er TM87? I got TM32 :]

    I'd use water-types.

    Blastoise
    Tentacruel
    Vaporeon
    Swampert
    Milotic
    Slowbro
    Lanturn
    Lapras
    Cloyster

    Uh you have to use 6 Pokemon if you want to be a Gym Leader.

    Flying types, obviously. Pidgeot would be my "trump card" Pokémon (assuming I was an advanced enough gym leader to have evolved Pokémon).

    I'd also use Xatu (one of my favourites), a Swanna, and maybe a Rufflet as my standard "weak" addition to the team.

    It would be epic.

    (Hope it's fine for having those two 5th gens in there. XD)

    Ice Types for the win!
    However, not all my pokemon are Ice. A trick up my sleeve! But, they all know Ice Beam or Blizzard.

    - Empoleon
    - Lopunny
    - Mamoswine
     
  16. 32er

    32er TM87? I got TM32 :]

    Uhh I posted 9 Pokemon, I'd choose 6 of them for battles. ._.
     
  17. Little Miss Sunshine

    Little Miss Sunshine I like shorts!

    They may not pack the biggest punch, but I'd use bug types! They're my favourite.

    -Heracross
    -Butterfree
    -Scizor
    -Shuckle

    Sure, I'd probably get laughed by the big bad trainers of the higher gyms, but I'd have my little buggy buddies so I'd be perfectly fine with that.
     
  18. Primal Crusader V

    Primal Crusader V Watch some MANime

    I'd use something like this:

    -Sceptile
    -Scizor
    -Mantine
    -Magmar
    -Hitmonlee
    -Steelix

    And about the first post: Togekiss wasn't released until Gen. 4. So, you'd probably want to say Togetic.

    I'd be one of the first gyms preferably the first :D I would use Flying types (I've been reminded of how deadly they are :))

    1. Pidgey Lv. 8
    2. Spearow Lv. 10
    3. HootHoot Lv.8
    4. Wingull Lv. 14
     
  20. Cornelius

    Cornelius Continent

    Dragon types for days. I'd probably also use dragon-like Pokemon, too, like Gyarados and Charizard. I don't know the full team that I would use, and I don't have the patience to consider it.
