    I found all of them pretty easy (especially Brycen. Seriously, in Black I swept him with an underleveled Stunfisk). However, I can see how in BW1, Elesa can be fairly annoying if you don't prepare for her two Emolga. However, if you have a counter for her Emolga it can be a fairly easy battle. I liked Cheren in B2W2 because I was only using my starter, so it was more difficult (as there were no Pokémon early on that I wanted to use). I could however, have trolled him with a Drifloon I got from Dream Radar if I wanted to though (I was nice and didn't xD).

    I can vaguely recall Roxie being a pain, because of her Whirlipede. I also didn't use Lucario or Magnemite (as I used them in earlier games), so that made it harder.

    Lenora in Black was the most difficult for me, none of my pokemon had enough attack power to deal significant damage to her Herdier and Watchdog at that point in the game and her pokemon could 2 hit KO mine, took me about 5 attempts to beat her. Didn't really have many problems with the other leaders except maybe Drayden. Had no problems at all with any of the gym leaders in White 2, beat them all easily on my first go.

    I can say the hardest was Lenora in B/W, and no one in B2/W2. Her Retaliate Watchog was quite a thing, especially if you got unlucky with the Hypnoses.

    Hmm...well, none of them were hard enough to leave an impression on me, it'd seem. But I guess I'd say Lenora because of the move Retaliate. >.<
    The rest are a joke, ESPECIALLY Iris.

    I thought Skyla gave the most trouble. Usually, my choices are not ideal against Flying-types (for starters, Snivy is my choice of a starter), which is why I thought that Skyla was a bit troublesome for me.

    Thanks for reading.

    Skyla was the easiest for me in both Black and Black 2, possibly because I had a fast Electric type with me both times. Seeing that her Skarmory in Black 2 (not her lead 'mon, thankfully!) has Sturdy, I started that battle by having another team member use Stealth Rock.

    I could understand how you found her hard when you don't have the proper team, though, especially when you started with Snivy (so did I in Black 2). It's all in how prepared you are when you face her.

    The gym itself in Black 2 is annoying to traverse, though.

    I had 2 tries in Lenora in my Black. Everyone else was easy.
    But the gym that gave me the hardest time was Skyla's gym in BW2. I super hate the strong wind that blows you off.
    That puzzle just frustrate me so much!

    In White it was probably Elesa. I didn't have any potent counters, and THAT PARALYSIS.

    In White 2, probably Drayden, because I went in underleveled against a gym leader who I could hit neutrally at best.

    Really, people struggled against them? I personally thought they were all jokes. The puzzles were laughable at best too, GF clearly slacked off this time.

    Lenora and her Watchog. For a moment, they brought me back to the Whitney's Miltank nightmares. Who said Normal is a "weak" type?

    Elesa wasn't hard, she was just annoying.

    Clay in W2 beat me once, but only because I made a couple of mistakes that allowed him to set his Excadrill: Unintentionally I made a slow story team, being Electivire and a Quiet Volcarona my fastest pokes. Also, he was lucky with a Metal Claw boost and a couple of Rock Slide flinches.
    It's impossible, said pride. It's risky, said experience. OU suspect, yelled Smogon.

    In Pokémon Black, Lenora hands down was the most difficult gym leader in that game. Though, given that Normal-type Gym Leaders have always been the most difficult to me (Whitney, Norman, etc.) that was par for the course.

    In Pokémon Black 2, so far it's a tie between Cheren and Elesa. Although the former was genuinely difficult. It was the first time in years that I actually lost several times against the first gym leader. With Elesa, admittedly I was very sloppy and a bit under-leveled.

    Admittedly Cheren was pretty annoying. I wouldn't call him difficult, but he was definitely a pain to deal with, especially when, even with copious amounts of leveling, I still had trouble knocking out his Lillipup before it knocked me out.

    Elesa. Her Emolga were soooo annoying, especially with Volt Switch!

    In White... probably Elesa. I suppose Lenora was also difficult.

    In White 2.... eh, I'm not sure. I think I had the most trouble with Clay, but I don't think I had *too much* trouble with any of them, really.

    I had the most trouble with Marlon's Jellicent all because of it's Cursed Body ability, my Pokemon with the type advantages became useless because of it >.<
