    Default Hardest Gym Leader?

    For Kanto it was Misty cuz Pikachu kept getting confused and fainted (although it was overtrained)
    Johto are all the same for me
    Hoenn is Norman. Had to train Sceptile all the way to 36 to get it to evolve.
    Sinnoh.... never played.
    Unova BW was Elesa. Took 3 tries. BW2 was same.

    What about u guys?
    Please call me LT, not XX or whatever. Thanks.

    Overall, I'd have to say the gym leader that ever gave me the most grief was Whitney, Goldenrod Gym, Gen II. Freakin Miltank, man. You pretty much have to go get a machop or something for that fight, unless you want to spend another two hours just grinding to beat her with your other pokemon. Granted fighting types are very good, I never used them when I was a kid playing Silver version so I got very angry with Whitney every time I started a new game.

    Johto. When you say Jotho, you mean Whitney. And when you say Whitney, you mean Whitney's Miltank. One of the reasons for this is how early Whitney appears in the game, and sometimes you even don't get a fighting type to deal with Miltank. Other tough gyms are, as you say, Norman in R/S, his second Slaking is badass, and the two first from Unova, they have pretty high level pokemons for being the first gyms, however, you get the monkey before the first gym, and near Lenora is plenty of nice fighting types which are really helpful, Timburr is a good choice for a permanent team member.

    Whitney. It was all fine and good until the Miltank. Dear god the Miltank
    That thing was rage inducing to the extreme... Finally beat it using Fighting types, but man, I've never had that much trouble with a gym leader before

    Probably Johto for me because I often had trouble with Whitney, Morty and Clair back in the GSC days. Clair can still be pretty tough in the remakes actually.

    Why is everyone having problems with johto? It's like, i just keep overtraining my pokes for some reason, just don't know why. I don't even bother to ev train in GSC lol.

    I never have troubles with gym leaders anymore, but I guess I would say Norman is the hardest gym leader.

    Sinnoh for me. Their strongest Pokemon are often very powerful for the stage of the game and are a nightmare for a team that are still developing to stand up to. The last three (Byron, Candice and Volkner) are pretty easy, though Candice also turns into a pain in Platinum. (For the wrong reasons. Damn evasion boosting techniques)

    Who is this git?

    Hoenn has by far the toughest Gym Leaders. I lost three times to Brawly (stupid Vital Throw), very nearly lost to Norman even though I had the type advantage with my Blaziken, and Tate and Liza were a royal pain in the ass (fucking Psychic attacks).

    For me, Johto. It took me over 20 tries to beat Morty (the funny thing was, I went out and caught a Stantler and beat him immediatly...) and I still haven't got past Clair. Falkner was quite hard, considering I had absolutely nothing on my team that was very effective on his Pokémon. But I actually found Whitney's Milktank easy. Strange.

    Kanto: Brock, because I always chose the Fire starter and you had nothing to go against them with.
    Johto: Whitney/Clair. Again I chose the Fire starter and had to train up a Dratini and a Magneton to beat her and everyone knows how hard she was.
    Hoenn: Winnona. Norman was easy because I had a Pelipper with Protect: (i.e. Protect, Slack Off, Protect etc)
    Sinnoh: Crasher Wake as I had no electric types
    Unova: Lenora/Elesa: Elesa I just got a Boldore and Sandile but she was still tricky.

    For me it was both Unova and Johto. I didn't really had a problem with Whitney and her Miltank mostly because soon I figured I'd just paralize it. Now Morty and Clair on the other hand gave me a lot of trouble. Morty swept through my whole team just by using a single shadow ball, eventually I had to give my Nidorina a quick claw and teach it shadow claw. Clair was annoying with her Kingdra since I couldn't find a Dratini and Ice attacks did normal damage. As for Unova it will always be Elesa and her god damn Emolga's. Even Sandile had trouble taking care of them.
    Totally not into ponies...or am I?

    Ask me anything about fire type pokemon. I can assure you I know the answer.
