    Like in the games and anime, the leaders just sit there all day. it must get so boring. what do they do? why do they do it?

    They wait for challengers. That is their job.

    Oh and in Platinum and Heartgold/Soulsilver, they do go out and live their life sometimes.

    Probably train when you're not there

    They don't stand around anymore on new versions though.

    And if they do, they stay there to wait for a challenge.

    Because there only there to battle, they sometimes have other parts in the story, but they're usually short.

    They were programmed to do whateverthe game directors want. In this case, battling and short parts in the games story.

    'Cause that's their job.
    Besides, they don't in the new games; you see them around doing stuff.

    also as you see in some games (i.e G/S where misty is on a date) they dont just sit there 24/7
    sounds like a pretty sweet job, sit around most the day, get famous, battle poogymanz

    they train but when you walk in the door they act like they were doing nothing so you would ask the question "what do they do while i am not here? :0000"
  9. They're just Gym leaders. I think it would be too bothersome to program a daily routine for each Gym leader XP.

    Its an in-game thing like with all the trainers who are fixed in one position. In the anime, gym leaders do have a life and are frequently seen outside the gym as well as inside.
