first most rock gyms aren't that hard even whit ember they are K0'd easely
second it is kinda stupid they have almost always rock first. I hope they change that in the V gen if they really have too, then use a not too obvious rock pokemon :/
Agreed. the Rock gym is usually easy and that's why the 1st gym's type must to be different that the other.
Mostly it was pretty easy to finish with this gym but the other gyms are hard.
