Does anyone else ever get the feeling that a gym leader isn't that special after awhile? Like if you're fighting a 2nd gen gym leader, as an example, do u feel like fighting Whitney's miltank was just like fighting any other miltank, not HER miltank?

I thought it'd be a cool idea if the show introduced the gym leaders with specific marking on their pokemon, like a scar or different style, and the games had you battle them looking that way. It would feel like the gym battles are more unique, anyone else agree?

I'm happy enough if they have their "big" Pokemon before you can see it anywhere else in the game, makes it feel badass enough.
Eh-heh...

Personally, I always felt that Gym Leaders, the Elite Four, Champions, and rivals should nickname their Pokemon.

Yea, I mean they are the 'boss battles' of Pokemon. Making them a bit more distinguished from regular Pokemon would be a nice touch.

This. Gym leaders all have their main Pokemon shown before you can find them in the wild yourself.

Except for Falkner... Oh Falkner...
Love me long time.

But you can also get those "big" pokemon in the game at some point. If theyre the boss battles of the game, its about beating them, not about being able to have exactly what they have. Nicknames and distinct style differences would be welcome.

Personally, i think a Gym Leader's Signature Pokemon is only notable, if its a Pokemon that isn't able to be caught except for a few towns later, i mean Miltank is what? 2-3 towns away from Goldenrod..

Can't really recall that many signature Pokemon of gym leaders except for possibly Bugsy's Scyther or something, rather than gym leaders who only has Pokemon you've already seen or is in a route nearby..

That's why I loved maylene and her Lucario. It built up hype until you got it later on

Her Miltank is notable in other ways.

Like curbstombing.

I like the concept of gym leaders maining a certain pokemon.
