How do you become a Gym Leader?

To become a Gym Leader, you need to be appointed by the Pokemon League of the region you would like to work in. There are no residence requirements as they are in United States politics, so theoretically you can visit a region and become a Gym Leader during your stay.

Most commonly used Pokemon by Gym Leaders

As of generation 9, the most commonly used Pokemon by all Gym Leaders are Gyrados and Pelipper. This is largely due to water-type pokemon being super common and both Pokemon having dual typing (Water + Flying).
