    Gym Leaders vs Gym Masters

    In a now deleted tweet by Nintendo of America, it was confirmed that gyms would be returning. But instead of leaders we’d be getting Gym Masters. What do you think the difference will be, if at all? Any hopes of some improvements to gyms?

    Maybe challenges where you have to use certain type and beat both it’s weaknesses and showcase your strength over it. It might really be trying to make things more on a competitive sports like level.

    That and they could be totally hinting at a new Pokémon Stadium game in the works.

    Interesting.

    Well, just changing "leader" to "master" doesn't help with any theories yet. XD As far as speculation, I feel like it's possible they won't be based on a certain type? I always thought that might be nice to see.

    Maybe it's just a region unique term for a Gym Leader? I do agree it could be a new twist on a Gym Leader...
    Everyone has a dream that fills their heart. A journey they must take. A destiny to fulfill. As close as your imagination exists a magical place, where wondrous creatures with incredible powers help make dreams come true. It's the world of Pokemon!!"

    That's definitely possible. Though I do feel like they might change something at least a bit.

    Battle Frontier confirmed? That would be dope, instead of Gyms just get into the Frontier.

    Maybe there's some sort of additional challenge to the typical Gym match or something. One thing I've always wanted to see the games do is to restrict the player to only using the same number of Pokemon that the Gym Leader is gonna use, like how it's done in the anime. I always use that restriction on myself regardless but still, it would be nice to see it as an official rule rather than a self-imposed challenge.

    That is actually a cool idea. Make it more fair and challenging. Make the person think more heartfelt on the battle that lies ahead instead of going full throttle 6v3

    Not just that, but maybe you get to choose the challenge. Like it's a theme the ask you to choose between.
