Who's the most irritating Gym Leader in all games that you faced?

For me, it's Whitney. I battled her in Crystal a few years back and she beat me so many times until I used Kadabra and Quilava to beat her in Level 25 around there.

But which Gym did you have trouble with?

I was just reminiscing about how hard Watson was in Emerald. When I didn't pick Mudkip, which was a lot of the time, I had a lot of trouble with Magneton and Manectric. Oh and he had Super Potions. And Paralysis.

Clay gave me the most trouble due to his Excadrill. Another large contender was the dragon-type gym in Unova too.

Yeah, Watson was very annoying unless you picked Mudkip. Also Flannery, Sabrina and Clair. XP

As a child... Whitney xD
Now in HG, I used SelfDestruct, 4 hit win :D xD
But the one I still struggle with somehow is Tate and Liza in Emerald, I think it's because I rarely get anything strong against Psychic types :P

Oh god, definitely Norman.

Those Slakings of his kept sweeping my team, unless if I did excessive level-grinding.

I'd say both Norman and Whitney. Those normal type Gym Leaders definitely prove to be formidable opponents with such relatively useless Pokemon.

When I was a 6 year old playing Crystal, Whitney gave me a very hard time.

Lenora in Black and White was mildly difficult for my team of only a Purrloin and Pidove. I eventually citched my Purrloin, its defenses were just too awful.

I say Brawly. Why? Because my team had not developed enough to be able to defeat him easily. I had to defeat him with a bunch of X Defenses...

When I played Ruby for the first time, I kept being beaten by Brawly. Later on, I had a tough time with Lenora and Whitney.

It depends on what team I am using. Whitney is always hard unless you have a good fighting type like Heracross. Norman was SORTA hard, but Slack Off really helped in defeating Him. I personally had more trouble with Cheren in white 2 than ANY OTHER leader. Those work ups really make him hit hard.

Because I was being stubborn, the leader that I struggled with the most recently was Roxie. My team was made up of only my Snivy and Riolu at that point, both of whose attacks are not very effective against Poison types. I actually lost to her three straight times before finally winning, and even then I refused to add any other Pokemon to my team (I had 5 by the time I faced Burgh).

If we can shift this to Elite 4 for a second I'd like to shed light on how hard Lorelei was in Fire Red. I'm pretty sure I wanted to kill myself or break my gameboy sp in half countless times. Regarding Gym Leaders we can all agree Whitney was pretty dang hard. And all I can say for Norman was it was a good thing I had a Breloom with Mach Punch and Leech Seed.

"Back in the day," I hated Sabrina and Whitney.
Now I don't have trouble with them, BUT Clair gets me, and in B2W2... Elesa. o___<

Jasmine typically gives me a lot of trouble, even more than Whitney's Milktank.

Lt. Surge, Whitney, and Elesa are three of the gym leaders that I've struggled with the most. If I'm going to face them next, my Pokemon must be overleveled (about 3-5 levels over their Pokemon) before I face them. Plus, before reaching them, I have to have special Pokemon to beat...or else I am dead meat.

Whitney, hands down. I think it took 2-3 hours to defeat Whitney, what a trolling miltank. That rollout attack. xD

Definitely Whitney. Because of her Miltank, I had to train my Dratini (from the Game Corner) to the point where it was able to evolve, but didn't evolve it, simply because I wasn't letting it evolve until it could defeat the two Pokemon that I actually fear (Miltank and Wigglytuff) by itself.

I have a confession to make. I actually never had a problem with Whitney. Admittedly, when I came back to her, like, two days ago on SoulSilver she actually put up one heck of a fight, but Dratini's Dragon Rage shut that Miltank down in two hits.

No, the gym leader that has given the most trouble out of any of them was... Misty. Red and Blue Misty. I don't know why I had such a problem, it's not like I had a fire type starter or anything, I had a Wartortle. But that girl slaughtered me each and every time. I don't think any other gym leader has put down nearly as many times as she did.

First generation Misty; Norman; Clair.

What I like about Clair is that she is undoubtedly meant to be difficult, and actually is.
