Um X, he’s asking for the type of puzzle of each gym. Like, the different types of puzzles in the gyms
Just the different types of puzzle formats (i.e. my example of a quiz-like puzzle and your example of a guantlet).
Yes, Smoothie. Thank you.
I may have misunderstood -- I was under the impression that you wanted every Gym puzzle to find the patterns between them. If this is the case, then I can say with confidence that the most major subsets are the gauntlet and the entity puzzle. Other minor variations exist, like the quiz (Fantina and Clemont), but the overall formation remains the same.

If I was mistaken, I'm sorry for being an idiot :P
Np. The examples in my title and your examples (plus, any you might have missed) will suffice greatly.
They're mostly all mazes with a couple repeated other styles, (quiz, warp panel.)

that took too much time
Congratulations on answering, but what's your source? And if you're not sure that this is the full list, you're better off with a comment than answering.
I feel like Hammerlocke and Ballonlea would also be considered as trainer defeating puzzles. On Ballonlea's specifically its a hybrid with the quiz.
Great, but Seafoam Islands aren't a gym location.
For Ecruteak Gym in HGSS, I'd call it a Guantlet.
The Shalour Gym is considered to be a Skating rink puzzle
So far, this answered my question of which gym housed which style variation of puzzle.
Seafoam Islands is a Gym location in HeartGold and SoulSilver.
