* Every Gym Leader that specializes in {{t|Ghost}}- and {{type|Steel}} Pokémon uses {{p|Gengar}} and {{p|Steelix}} respectively in battle.
* Even though there are 51 known Gyms in the games, with 58 Gym Leaders among them, there has not yet been a Gym specializing in {{type|Dark}} Pokémon, although there have been three [[Elite Four]] members; [[Karen]], [[Sidney]], and [[Grimsley]], as well as an [[Island Kahuna]], [[Nanu]]. All the other seventeen types have at least one Gym associated with them. {{type|Electric}} specialist Gyms appear in five of the six regions that feature Gyms.
* For ''[[DP009|Setting the World on Its Buneary]]'', [[Professor Oak's Big Pokémon Encyclopedia]] is about Gym Leaders. He writes this {{wp|senryū}} about them: 「ジムリーダー いのちをかけて かかってこい」 ''"Gym Leader, put your life on the line and challenge me."''
* The {{t|Dark}} type did not get a Gym until [[Generation VIII]], twenty years after the type debuted in {{game|Gold and Silver|s}}. Previously, there have been three [[Elite Four]] members ([[Karen]], [[Sidney]], and [[Grimsley]]) as well as an [[Island Kahuna]] ([[Nanu]]) who specialize in Dark types. The other seventeen types have at least one Gym associated with them, with the new types {{t|Steel}} and {{t|Fairy}} getting gyms in their debut generations.
* Every Gym Leader that specializes in {{t|Ghost}}- and {{type|Steel}} Pokémon uses {{p|Gengar}} and {{p|Steelix}} respectively in battle.
* In the Johto saga of the anime, none of the Gym Leaders had exactly the same lineups as they do in the games.
* The Sinnoh saga marks the only time in the anime that all Gym Leaders in a region have used exactly the same teams as in the games.
* In the games, every Gym Leader has at least one Pokémon in his or her party that knows the [[TM]] move he or she gives out upon defeat. Former Gym Leaders do not count in this, as Wallace when he is faced as Champion and Giovanni when he is faced in Generation IV do not have Pokémon that know the move they gave out as TMs when they were faced as Gym Leaders in previous games. Koga, despite not being a Gym Leader in Generation IV, has several Pokémon that know Toxic, the move he last gave out as a TM.
* From Generations I- to V (not counting remakes), every move that was in a TM given out by a Gym Leader was a new move for that generation, and many of them were rarely (if ever) seen on any other Pokémon in the generation they were introduced. This trend has been broken in Generation VI, where only three Gym Leaders—Viola, Korrina, and Valerie—hand out TMs with moves new to the generation.
* In Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald, the player can continue the game without defeating [[Winona]] of [[Fortree City]] until attempting to battle the Elite Four.
* The Orange League is the only one so far in which Ash has successfully defeated all the Gym Leaders without a rematch.
