Claire. I recall using a Combusken on the Miltank and it was a breeze.

Claire definitely gave me a run for my money.

Only problems I had with Whitney was in Crystal. In HG, it seems alot easier. On my latest run-through, I chose Chikorita and so Bugsy was the hardest for me. Bayleef was my only Pokemon as I didnt want any at that point. I had to get a slowpoke and grind it up a little and keep using Curse. Eventually, I won. After that, all the other gym leader were easy since I got the next Pokemon on my team.

When I was younger, I struggled endlessly with Morty. This time round, I've learnt from my many years of Pokemon mistakes, so in SS I had no trouble with anyone really. Although, I still struggle with Morty the most when I call for rematches.

For me, there were many that were quite hard. I have trouble against Chuck almost every time, and Jasmine immediately after is no walk in the park either for me. It's just her Magnemites and their Thunder Waves though. And of course, Clair is hard too, but I managed to pull it off quite easily in SS with Feraligatr (Ice Fang), Crobat (Confuse Ray) and Sunflora (Leech Seed + Grasswhistle).

Hardest Gym leader, depends on the team and the trainer in my opinion. But, I found Pryce hard because my team was set for every Pokémon but Ice. Luckily I had a Articunio that knew Rock smash!

Jasmine because steel types crush all my team (apart from my water type, but that loses to magnemite). Whiteny is tricky, but i poisoned her, then her lum berry got rid of her so i piosoned her again! Bayleef ftw :D

Really? You made a thread for this? I'm pretty sure we can all come to an agreement on who it is. I'll give you a hint: she's sexy and uses an animal that produces milk. I will admit that Clair falls dangerously close behind, though.

Ha, Whitney spamming Milk Drink was a pain, but I don't find any of the gym leaders particularly hard. Some battles just too longer than others, and it happened to be that Whitney was stuck up and refused to let that cursed cow faint.

Everyone hates Whitney because of that Miltank...

Claire, because I had absolutely no Pokemon to fight her with. I just had to hope for critical hits.

Bugsy because I get myself a Ralts/Kirlia a lot and the U-Turn was a OHKO every time until I was able to get lucky with Double Team.

Chuck. His Poliwrath's Focus Punch always seem to have somehow gotten to me. Whitney is the second hardest for me.

Definitely Whitney because Milktank was one of the toughest Pokemon I've dealt with, especially since it restored it's health every other turn. Claire is a definite second because Dragon type Pokemon are still kind of hard to tackle with only lvl40ish Pokemon.

For me, Whitney was always the toughest gym leader whenever I went through Heart Gold/Soul Silver (which I went through 3 times so far). Her Miltank... argh! Just makes me irritated thinking of it using Milk Drink. I always wondered why her Normal types gave me so much trouble, especially since my Pokémon were at a higher level than hers most of the time.

my most troublesome gym leader was indeed whitney. with all the others, you could make a plan of attack, but she just spammed rollout and stomp which was certainly a pretty good combination if you ask me. :x

Claire. Her kingdra took forever to take out and I had nothing to take out dragons except Feraligatr with ice punch. Although Kingdra screwed me over so bad.

Oddly enough, I didn't have much of a problem with Whitney (aside from a little mishap with forgetting about Scrappy) this time around.

Clair, however, was a pretty big pain to deal with. It mostly stems from the fact that all the wild Pokemon in the area were at such a low level, making it annoying to train up to match the level of her Pokes.

Hmm... In the original Gold/Silver, I thought all the gyms were rather tough except for Price. That guy was so easy. In each of my run throughs and versions I had problems with each gym leader somewhere along the line. Heart Gold/Soul Silver just made all the gyms really easy for some reason.
