This sounds fun!
For added fun, I'll be playing the games in Japanese.
1st Gym (Brock): Bulbasaur
2nd Gym (Misty): Pidgeotto
3rd Gym (Lt. Surge): Sandslash
4th Gym (Erika): Persian
5th Gym (Koga): Dugtrio
6th Gym (Sabrina): Marowak (Getting past that rival battle was annoying...)
7th Gym (Blaine): Lapras
8th Gym (Giovanni): Kabutops
She was overall easy to take down. Her Lapras gave me some troubles, but it only took me two tries to get her down.
Nice, easy fight. I was able to quickly destroy everyone without any difficulty.
After jumping the gun and giving FireFox a Fire Stone before he could learn any decent moves, I decided that I'd just finish off her ghost type Pokemon with primarily tail whip, confuse ray, and a heck of a lot of Hyper Potions.
Once I got Gyarados down, it was an easy fight. Nothing really special about this one seeing as my ice moves took out most of Lance's dragons in one hit.
Green/Blue/*Insert Rival's Name Here*
This was a pretty easy fight. Even if I was only able to get his Rhydon down in one hit, Tauros was able to take all of the hits thrown at him with ease.
This was a fun challenge. I enjoyed battling with some Pokemon that I usually wouldn't use and planning out movesets to best take out the Pokemon that I had to go up against. Fairly grindy, but nothing that a speed button couldn't fix. Overall, I'm up for a round two...

: * Stantler
...Those last three guys were kinda painful. Ah well, made it through eventually...
Kanto Gym Leaders:
9th Gym Leader (Erika): Nidorino
10th Gym Leader (Lt. Surge): Kadabra
11th Gym Leader (Sabrina): Kangaskhan
12th Gym (Janine): Haunter
13th Gym (Misty): Electabuzz
14th Gym (Brock): Weepinbell
15th Gym (Blaine): Nidorina
16th Gym (Green): Dragonite
Rollout rock (pun intended). Once I got myself set up with XAttacks, I was able to take everyone out easily.
Out of all of the Pokemon I used this round, I have to say that using ditto was the hardest. Its stats and lack of PP made it tough due to the fact that some Rockets love to carry around self-destructing Koffings...
Gym Leaders (Currently 2/8):
1st Gym (Roxanne): Torchic
2nd Gym (Brawly): Shroomish
Pokemon Planned for the 3rd Gym: Aron
Edit: I'll be pulling out of this challenge on Ruby. I've hit a brick due to the Rival battle, and I don't feel like grinding that much.
