That Grovyle was such a pain, put the smack down on my Marshtomp, I didn't have a Taillow on my team... x/
Combusken on my other runs through was trouble as well, Marshtomp however crumbles with any grass type move.

Evice in Pokemon Colosseum. I was way too many levels behind him the first time and was only able to get through with dumb luck.

Tate and Liza of Hoenn was so hard. I was a begnning trainer at that point and had Blaziken and others between levels 20-25. I actually won because my Wobbufet used Destiny bond.

Tate and Liza, it took me 3 days to beat them.
But they're not just beyond annoying, they're far beyond annoying.
In emerald that is. They were pretty easy in RS.

I think the hardest battles for me were both in the Hoenn Region:
The Double Battle fight Tate and Liza was pretty hard, especially since i had Blaziken.
But the hardest battle ever for me was Champion Steven and his Metagross...

I had difficulty with the champion of R/S/E. I'm talking about both champions, Steven in Ruby/Sapphire and Wallace in Emerald. My Pokémon weren't that very strong at that time. Steven's Metagross was hard to beat for sure, and I had trouble with Wallace because his Water-type Pokémon had Ice-type moves, and it would greatly damage Sceptile, my starter.

Other than that, Tate and Liza was also a hard duo to beat, especially in Emerald since they had additional two Pokémon. I hate it when they use a Hyper Potion, and they have two of it!

The toughest battle I've ever had was with Elite Four in Pokemon Black and White, surprisingly enough. It took me around 8-10 tries to get them done with and when I did the rest was easy.

Although, right now Flannery's Torkoal is going to be coming in a close second place... why can't I beat it... Oh, right, his defense.

It took my days to beat Brock the first time I played through yellow because I was really young and inexperienced back then and the only Pokemon I had was Pikachu. I don't think I've ever struggled with a gym leader that much before.

Lorelei in Yellow. If I get past her, I can beat the rest of the Elite Four, but that rarely happens. Pikachu can't take a hit and her stupid Cloyster has ridiculous Special Defense. It doesn't help that almost all of her Pokemon are part Water, meaning a Fire or Ground type still has a disadvantage.

It took me at least 3 tries to get past Falkner in HeartGold, his Pidgeotto was a killer at first and wiped out my team with either it's gust or peck. However, on my third try, since my Level 9 Chikorita had some HP left, I used poison powder, which really helped and along with some of HootHoot and Ratman the Rattata's moves, I defeated Falkner.

I've only played the Generation 5 games, but Elesa was the most difficult for me. Her Emolgas kept pulverizing my starter and Fossil Pokemon (Which were Dewott and Archen respectively at the time) and staticizing my others which makes this overall battle very annoying. I had to use a few fresh waters and Paralyz Heals to get through this annoying battle, but I eventually did make it about three days later.

Tate and Liz were horrible. I would say those two are the worst, followed by Sabrina in RBY. At that point in time there were really no types that beat her and hers always seemed to outspeed everything.

As long as these struggles are aimless, we will all be standing still.

Holy crap, nearly everything in Hoenn apart from Norman, Roxanne and the actual Elite Four part of the Elite Four was hard for me in Emerald. Tate & Liza were pains in the... well, everywhere. It was nearly impossible to bet their Xatu and Claydol combo.
oh hey is this a placeholder

Red of HGSS course, you'll have to battle him with all his pokemon at level 80s, straight form the level 50s of Blue

imo the definition of a hard battle is how much grind and planning you need to do before taking on that trainer. In this aspect Red from HGSS definitely wins.

It's not about EVs or Ivs, which is the best starter, which typing is the best or which generation was awesome and which generation was crap.

If you see a wild Pokemon in front of you, You throw a Pokeball at it. It's that simple
