    This. So very much. I had so much trouble with Bugsy it wasn't even funny. I never wanna see that damn Scyther again. It made Whitney's Miltank look easy in comparison!
    Hello, I'm still here, all that's left of yesterday...

    Well, looks like I have a new challenge to tackle: Pokemon X. And then maybe Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire... but for now, I'll see which Pokemon I can name after K-pop idols.

    On my first run of diamond (and the first time playing pokemon period) Roark was the hardest (didn't help that I picked Chimchar). Even a year or so later, his Cranidos wiped out my team, even with having Piplup as my starter. I think the main reason this kept happening was his headbutts flinching my pokemon and getting critical hits. In hind sight, I hadn't trained that much either.

    Tate and Liza. The fact that it was a double battle just made it worse...

    WHITNEY.

    She stands out because she gave me so much trouble as a kid, something no one else did. I had tough battles, sure, but Whitney caught me completely off guard and when you're little, that isn't fun at all. Lots of battles may have been harder but I saw them coming. Whitney was the third gym leader and yet was absurdly strong.

    Since I chose Chikorita in my first Silver/Gold playthrough, I suffered a lottt when fighting Bugsy. Even with Totodile it was pretty hard. ): But there's also Brawly in Emerald who gave me a hard time with Bulk Up + Arm Thrust/Karate Chop.
    I am absolute.

    Sabrina in Pokémon Stadium. That Alakazam was unbeatable (that, and the fact that Psychic was extremely broken back in Gen I and also the fact that critical hits depended on how fast the Pokémon was, and Alakazam, being a fast Pokémon, got critical hits like 7 out of 10 times). Not even Chansey could stop that f*ck3r.

    I am ashamed of saying this, but...

    Cilan in Black. :| Because I just refused to catch a freaking useless Pidove to beat that damn Pansage and I didn't want to get a Pansear. I insisted on beating Pansage with my Oshawott but I just couldn't. I had to go get the Pansear.

    Clay. Definitely. He knocked out so much of my party in Black 2 with that Excadrill. Thankfully I won in the end, but sheesh.

    Lenora came a close second.

    I recall Misty's Starmie giving me so many problems when I was a kid. Ugh. To this day, I refuse to get a Starmie or Staryu.

    Other than that...I don't remember much. Ironically, I never had problems with the usual Gyms listed here. I did have issues with Winona for a ridiculously stupid amount of time, but since then...not much. Maylene was annoying as hell, but not tough. Oh, the Cheri Berries that were eaten that day...

    I think that after the Winona fiasco, I started picking my types better and that's why I don't have scary Gym stories.

    NOW LORELEI OH GOD. But this isn't the E4 thread, so I'll just leave and say: "Winona was a pain the neck."
    My mom's Puerto Rican. That's why I'm so lively and colorful.

    Elesa in nimbassa mainly because her emolgas kept dogging my pokemons attacks with double team and her emolgas also kept paralizyn my pokemon then after all that work came zebstrika which finnished my tiered pokemon with wild charge.Whitney in HG was hard to mainly because of her milktanks hp and attract which destroyed my golbat and my bayleaf.

    Mine would have to be Clay because 1) Moxie Krokorok swept my team once 2) Excadrill. I usually train my pokemon up to the level that all their other pokemon are at but I couldn't in this battle I had to evolve my Drilbur into Excadrill just to beat him

    Without any second thoguths, it has to be Whitney. Not only is her infamous Miltank absurdly powerful and bulky, the fact that I used Cyndaquil most of the time doesn't help.

    On Gen III, Liza and Tate gave me problems. Using Blaziken was no fun when againt them.
