I may have phrased it wrong because I referenced the game in terms of the last Gym Leader and the higher you go and such but the idea isn't that these Gym Leaders all just started out so that they don't have multiple fully evolved Pokemon. I mean, not like they would battle with 6 fully evolved Pokemon if the trainer opposing them only has like 2 or 3 Pokemon. In the anime it was always the Gym Leaders using the amount of Pokemon the challenger has if the Gym Leader had more Pokemon than the challenger. And as stated before, the previous game even had Gym Leaders exempt from that rule to begin with. Although as far as the "order" of Gym Leaders goes...I suppose so. We can scrap the order but one of the things about Gym Leaders like Cael Armstrong, Clifford Montaro, and Drew Dwyer is that the trainers have to prove themselves "worthy" is it is clearly depicted as part of their personality with the mini-bios I provided with how their Gyms function. No.
