My favorite was definitely Flannery. One of the only videogame characters I ever had a crush on. I would have redacted taken her to a nice seafood dinner then called her back after observing the 3-day rule.

A very close second (and if we aren't counting looks, my first choice) is Wattson. Electric is one of my favorite types, and I like the jolly old man character he has. He just seems so... friendly.

Least favorite was Tate & Liza. The dual battle gym mechanic was fun and all, but that Claydol/Xatu combo was a redacted again tough fight.

My favorite Gym Leader in 3rd Gen is Wallace. He was a pretty cool and interesting character in the anime and I really love the puzzle in his gym.

Brawly - I like him since he is so easy to defeat if you have a Combusken. Simply peck all of his Pokémon's eyes out and you'll have destroyed him without getting even one hit point worth of damage.

Flannery - I love Fire Types, so of course I love Flannery! <3<3<3

Sorry for having two, but they are my two favourites and it's hard to choose between the both of them.

Roark is 4th gen mate!

Kanto: Sabrina, because it was so difficult to reach her in her gym.
Hoenn: Wallace, he uses milotic which looked so damn awesome.

Wallace for sure. I can see Wallace as a gym leader, but definitely not the champion. I think it suits him more. The ice puzzle was pretty cool and he was a kinda hard gym leader. It kinda pissed me off that he was the champion in Emerald, but at least they allowed you to fight Steven later.

In Kanto, Koga. Because poison type. That's why.

Hey guys, I'm really sorry to advertise here, but my friend's band just released a really good song, and I think I'd mean a lot to them if I shared it, so..

Hoenn: Tate & Liza.
Kanto: Sabrina.

Yep I like Psychic types, but the gym puzzle is also fun (at least the Hoenn one).

Without a doubt Flannery, as she's quite funny when she tries not to be. Plus she's hot (No pun intended).

For me, it's Wallace. His gym provided a very challenging obstacle, and his Pokémon were tough to beat. Tate and Liza are also my favorites. They're the first gym leaders to battle opponents together, and it was just entertaining to have battles against them.

I've always loved Misty since the days of RBY. But I may be biased toward her because she's my favorite character in the anime, well, after James anyway.

As for Hoenn, I love Wattson. He's all jolly and happy and I love the New Mauville sidequest. I always enjoy it when you get to interact with the gym leader outside of the gym/gym match.
