The Gym Leaders
Well in every pokemon game there are eight or either sixteen gyms you can battle yo obtain badges, but in Pokemon White there are only six gyms and eleven gym leaders. The first gym you will visit will have three gym leaders, but you will only have to battle one based on your starter pokemons type. I will list the name of the gym leaders and their pokemon types.
The first gym is in Striaton City the gym leaders are Chili, Cress, and Cilan. This is the gym that has three gym leaders, but you will only have to battle one of them depending on your starter pokemons type like I said earlier. The gym leaders pokemon types are fire, water, and grass. You will get the Trio badge once you beat the gym.
The second gym is in Nacrene City the gym leader of this gym is Lenora, she only uses normal types. You should find the pokemon Timburr in the bushes before you reach the city, if you catch one it will make the battle more easier since fighting moves are super-effective on normal types. Once you beat this gym you will get the Basic badge.
The third gym is in Castelia City and the gym leader for this gym is Burgh, he uses mainly bug types. If you have caught a flying of fire type pokemon you could win pretty easily. Once you beat this gym leader you will get the Insect badge.
The fourth gym is in Nimbasa City the leader of this gym is Elesa, she uses electric type pokemon. Once you beat this gym you will get the Bolt badge.
The fifth gym is in Driftveil City and the leader of this gym is Clay, he only uses ground types. So if you have or caught any water types you'll dominate this gym leader. Once you beat this gym leader you will get the Quake badge.
The sixth gym is in Mistralton City and the leader of this gym is Skyla, she uses all flying type pokemon so ground type moves won't be effective on her pokemon. If you already have caught any rock or ground type pokemon bring them to this gym, and use rock type moves on her pokemon. When you beat this gym you will get the Jet Badge.
The seventh gym is in Icirrus City and the leader of this gym leader is Brycen, he uses mainly ice type pokemon. Use water and fire type pokemon against this gym leader and you should be fine. Once you beat this gym you will get the Freeze Badge.
The final gym is in Opelucid City and the leader of this gym is Iris, she uses all dragon type pokemon. Some of her dragon pokemon use overpowering moves like Outrage. Use ice, water, and dragon type pokemon against her or pokemon with a high defense stat. When you beat this gym you will get the Legend badge.
