Remaining Pokémon Black 2 / White 2 Gym Leaders Revealed


Thanks to AAPF we now know the full gym leader roster (supposing there are no version exclusives that haven’t been revealed):
[list style=”orb” color=”green”]

  • Cheren
  • Homika
  • Shizui
  • Burgh
  • Elesa
  • Skyla
  • Clay
  • Drayden

Disappointed?! Happy?! COMMENT 😀

<;3 pokejungleps- BulbaNews is listing a difference in type effectiveness (Ghost is no longer resistant to Bug), but I highly suspect this to be a typo.

  1. Arty/Burgh and Kamitsure/Elesa are back. I’m happy. I’m sure many will be happy that Fuuro/Skyla is back.. Clay.. ehh..

  2. I don’t mind this roster but clay is the only one that I just don’t like as a gym leader ^^; Only Drayden is perfect! He is awesome 😀 Iris is freaky annoying xD

  3. WHERE IS QUEEN LENORA :l if shes not in the games at all I might have an epi.

    anyway I guess the gym leader line up is alright. I’m not a big fan of Clay, Burgh or Drayden but they’re okaaay…

    Elesa looks fabulous with her new coat. I wonder if its made of Mareep wool 😀

  4. I think Clay’s character didn’t really go anywhere.. he seemed to just be there to fill a niche or because people were saying pokemon characters were too young or something.

    Here’s hoping we get some artwork of the gym leaders soon in good quality. I assume they’ll all have redesigns

  5. I;m ok with the gym leaders, and it is actually good to have Cheren as one so we can show him that he hasn’t gotten stronger ahhaha.

  6. Well, if Lenora and Iris are not in the roster anymore…
    Brycen – Yeah, a full time actor, can’t expect much. Maybe Gym Leaders do not have high salaries.

    1. It doesn’t look like we get a Battle Frontier this time.


      Looks like the World Tournament took its place.

      1. Oh yeah, totally forgot about that new element.
        It’s kind of bittersweet then, while we get to see all the old gym leaders, we don’t get to have new battle modes.
        Like, ‘chances and probabilities’ emphasised by Battle Arcade, ‘knowledge and wisdom’ emphasised by Battle Factory.

  7. Right, y;all said that Brycen was i it. I’m like Iccirus if frozen, what are you on? But glad he isn’t now 😀

    1. They said that only Elesa got redesigned art. Haven’t seen anyone see anything to say otherwise.

    1. They do get different art. Or at least we know skyla is different. So these are probably placeholders.

      1. They said they all get the same art except for Elesa. Haven’t seen anything that says otherwise yet.

        1. In one of the B2W2 trailers, Skyla is shown in her new gym with a black outfit.

    2. I’m sure ALL of the gym leaders will have new outfits.
      After all, TWO whole years have passed.

      If not, they’re closets need to be burned by wild Heatmor.

    1. His beard is based after an English Knight’s face guard. Knights slay Dragons, and Drayden is a Dragon trainer so they incorporated that for his design.

  8. I was hoping that Chili would get his own gym, since, in the anime, he stated that it was his main goal to open Unova’s first Fire-type gym.

  9. hey its togefree im typing this from my 3ds so i can’t log in but i hope that burgh and skyla get tougher as gym leaders and gyms puzzles become more difficult ps why hate on clay he a better gym leader the skyla and his team is much more challenging

  10. Huh. I was kinda hoping for one or two new gym leaders, but I’m sure the three new ones will be pretty awesome either way.

    Other than that, looks awesome! I mean, the plot will obviously be much different, so I’m excited to see that side of it.

  11. Honestly, after thinking about it, I kinda hope that the Bug isn’t resisted by Ghost ISN’T a typo cause now Sableye and Spiritomb have a weakness, and we won’t have a Type Combination that has no weaknesses.

  12. I’m sure that SHIZUI is the last gym leader!
    Look at any trailer ,that shows his gym, and u will that there are elite trainers, and elite trainer are only found in the last Gym.

  13. Gosh! I wrote Drayden to google images to inspect his beard but all I saw was drawings that portrays him in intercourse with Alder. What kind of fantasy is this? I mean it! Is this really a child game!?!?

    1. To be exact, I’m not criticizing it. I’m just surprised that more than 10 people thought of their releationship and spent some time to draw it.

  14. So we get 2 new gym leaders…
    2 Gym Leaders get new artwork (Skyla and Elesa)
    1 Gym Leader isn’t active anymore and is now a actor again (Brycen)
    Yeah this is kind of disappointing.

    I’m guessing Lenora gave the position to Cheren so she can continue work on her library/museum, and the fact that her town is frozen. It’s obvious Chili, Cress, and Cilan aren’t gym leaders for now because Striaton City is frozen lol.

    Iris probably still is a Gym leader, with the whole version exclusive thing that went on in BW. Did they show her on the original BW guidebook?

      1. Those rumors died thanks to the trailer though since the Shadow Triad’s eyes were all Gray.

  15. if they change the bug/ghost deal, i’m gonna smash my action replay! i love my wonder guard shiny max stat spiritomb w/ roar of time! also, shizui, clay, and cheren should get canned. i doubt cheren will have his lv 60s team. explanation, gamefreak?

  16. maybe we’ll get 16 gym leaders! 8 in frozen unova, 8 when it unfreezes! maybe chili, cress, and cilan get their own gyms! (well, not cress, since we have shizui)and i’m confused, as i heard iris got new artwork and was still a gym leader. maybe she’ll come post-main story. still 4 more gym leaders if i’m right, speculation, please?

  17. actually, chili, cilan, and cress could be shadow triad (if the colored contact thing is true) where were they at team plasma’s castle? ha ha ha! i have proven it! yeah right. it would be cool, though.
