I'd love a pokemon game where the 8 badages were in the post game.

It starts out with you embarking on your pokemon adventure, with a more story driven quest. You can challenge the gyms at any time, but the gym leaders are actual skilled trainers, with full teams, and all pokemon level 70+. They would actually use strategies as well. For example, the bug gym leader may use a speed boost/baton pass setup that would lead into a Mega Scizor.

Instead of challenging the gyms right away, you can train at the gyms, and earn various items to help in your quest (as opposed to HMs).

that would be a lot of fun. it would be nice to have a different way of leveling IMO. something like to train your charmander you get more exp for killing pokemon who you have an advantage of (ie. Bug, grass, ice, steel) or something just to make it so its not just like E4 grind or Le Wow repeats and such. makes it more of a challenge to level up as opposed to just button mashing 'A' in the same battles

I heard that one of the Gen V games was something like that? Never played them myself.

That'd be pretty badass. Defeat the evil team, do a bunch of pokedex filling, explore the whole region, THEN start knocking off gyms. o.o M Night Shamalan Plot Twist!

Maybe one of the games I didn't play did this, but I'd also like to see a game where you beat the eight gyms, beat the Elite 4, and right when you think the Champion's coming out they say, "Congratulations. Welcome to the Pokémon League." Oh snap! It turns out that all the usual progression is just the qualifying round, and now you have to rematch all the Gym Leaders, who actually bring their A-Game this time around and show you why they're considered masters of their given type.* Then you'll have to rematch the Elite 4, and then, then you can fight the Champion.

'Cause seriously, what kind of expert Pokémon trainer has a team consisting of two, three Pokémon?

That are weaker than most wild pokemon for that matter.

No, but in BW2, after you get the last badge you preceed finish off Team Plasma before advancing to Victory Road.

In the first game, you didn't fight the Champion til post game, instead you dealt with N and Ghetsis.

If you watch the Pokemon Origins anime, it kind of explains why early gym leaders seem so easy compared to later ones. They handicap themselves based on how many badges a trainer has currently.

I've always had an idea about how that worked. But I wish they'd make a game take advantage of it. As in, you can do the gyms in (almost) any order. And their stats and teams are based on how many current badges you have.
Then any time in the post game, you can return to the Gym to rematch them with a full fledged team to see how good they really are.
