I don't get the Gym Leaders actual levels of power.

I think Alder says in Black 2 that the gym leader is supposed to play to their opponent's level in order to give them a close match which will better them as a trainer. So if a kid from Opelucid City started out on a journey, Drayden would probably fight him with just like a Axew and a low level Druddigon or something. But by the time he got to Virbank and was stronger, Roxie might be using Drapion, Toxicroak, Nidoking, etc.

I've always subscribed to the different Pokemon depending on badges idea but I try not to think about it too much either way because it makes the Gym Leaders look bad still and is kinda disillusioning.

How do you get there without waterfall?


Just go as far as you could until you get stuck.

I remember trying to get to the E4 and they said I need more badges. >_>

Don't know how I did that though.

Maybe I'm remembering wrong.


The only gen you could possible do that is Gen 1 and...BW1

It's been confirmed that Gym Leaders use different teams depending on how many badges their challenger has.


If you skip Jasmine and Chuck and go right for Pryce why would he use his team for when a trainer has 6 bages when you only have 4?

That's more of a game design issue than anything. Gotta remember that gameplay/story segregation.

In RSE you can go through Victory Road and up to the badge gates with fewer than eight badges.

I don't think you can even get onto Route 10 in BW until you beat Drayden/Iris.
