it was misty...well, if you didn't pick bulbasaur. Dat Water Pulse was so overpowerin' against those mostly 2nd stage undeveloped Pokemon. LOL

But seriously, it's misty...my vote went there.

Misty's Starmie definitely causes a lot of problems for anyone. I always try to pick up a Pikachu in Viridian Forest with intent on using it, at least for the time being. None of the gym leaders are really that much of a challenge for me given how I know what to do against them... :-X
This'll do for now.

Sabrina. It took me a crap-ton of tries until I eventually got lucky with a Dragon Rage from my level 20 Dratini.

Koga, since 75% of his team is only weak to Psychic and I typically don't have a Psychic on my team when I face him. All of his Pokemon are rather bulky and take a few hits to take down, which of course gives him plenty of time to Toxic your team.

It stores BERRIES inside its shell. To avoid attacks, it hides beneath rocks and remains completely still.

If I had to choose it would be Sabrina because of the problems that her Psychic type Pokemon caused for my team at the time.

Koga, definitely. His strategy could be aptly described by one move: Minimize. It's extremely annoying when I can't damage his Pokémon, especially when he uses Toxic while doing his Minimize thing. You wouldn't believe how many times I've had to battle him in order to win. I didn't really have any Psychic or Ground types at that time, either...
same here for same reason. pretty much the reason why my raichu still has shock wave and my pidgeotto has aerial ace. accuracy downers and evasiveness uppers are like my sworn enemy. surge should be easy for anyone although his raichu has double team, just get a diglett or dugtrio from diglett cave. also just noticed that no one thinks Blaine is hard to beat lol. probably because of how easy it is to get a water type on cinnabar.

Misty. Starmie was generally pretty brutal unless I picked Bulbasaur.

oh in the orginal pkmn Blue, the alakazam and kadabra of Sabrina were a true nightmare, because back then the opponent had unlimited pp. so it always kept healing itsself....

Based on what I saw posted, Misty is the hardest cos her Starmie is fast and strong unless if you picked Bulbasaur.

It even has Water Pulse, which can confuse you, and confusion can leave you screwed.

For me the most difficult gym leader was Lt. Surge because I had a water type starter on my team (I think it was a Blastoise by the time I got to him) and because I had a Pidgeotto and both of their weaknesses are Electricity. I wanted to get access to a ground type Pokemon from Digletts cave, but I don't think I was able to go in their because Snorlax was blocking the way and if Snorlax wasn't blocking the cave, then I am stupid.

Misty is definitely the hardest mainly because of how much of a difficulty spike Starmie is

Lt. Surge when I didn't have Diglett, which was pretty much all the time. I can't even remember if he had more than one Pokemon but I do remember paralysis being an issue.

Misty, I levelled my charmeleon to lvl 20 and my pikachu to lvl 16. That starmie killed my pikachu and I had to finish it with charmeleon, I failed like 3 times and at the fourth one I finally killed the thing using metal claw because pikachu kept dying.

Koga was always the hardest for me to beat, mostly because his Pokemon would always poison me as early as possible in the battle. I rarely carry Full Heals or any of the other status healing items (I rely on Full Restore later on), so my only option was to beat him with my under-leveled Kadabra. Second place would have to go to Misty, though, even though I chose Bulbasaur as my starter.

I gotta say Misty, since Charmander was my starter. It was a bit hard took about 3-5 tries to beat her.. I think my team had to be 22-25 to beat her, so sad .

I'd have to agree with Ozzy; none of them seemed to pose a noteworthy problem, as far as I can remember. And I don't even use starters. =L

None of the were a problem my Bulbasaur soloed pretty much till 3rd gym were it evolved in the ship were you Venusaur and became even more beast I caught a Growlithe and evolved it into Arcanine for the 4th gym, My Alakazam took the 5th gym, Arcanine bited that gym to death together with Gyarados, Gyarados overpowered Blaine and Giovanni was taken out by Venusaur and Gyarados.

Gamefreak knew everyone would have a Charfetish thats why misty was the hardest but not from me, I completed the game weeks before my classmates (rivals) because of the fact that they were stuck at Misty while I was kicking Koga's ass

Gliscor is boss. Period.
