Again, just as the title asks, which one of the Gym Leaders from these Kanto remake games are your personal favourite and why? They could be because of their personality, their challenge in battle, or anything else you can think of!

For example, I tend to favor Erika more, from Celadon City! She's been my personal favourite for years now, because she's quite serene, and I do love her awkward carefree nature to just doze off at times, haha. If you've played HG/SS, you'll see that she's pretty much a gossiper too. o3o

Sabrina. She's a total badass in the anime with her psychic abilities. Her gym maze is also fun to wander through as well.

Erika is very cute design-wise and I like her as a character, though it's sad that she (and the rest of the Kanto gym leaders, really) hardly play any roles outside sitting in their gym. Guess I'm spoiled with seeing gym leaders traverse the region or areas surrounding their hometown and the like in newer games, haha.

Surge is really awesome as well though and I wish so very much that we could learn a bit more of his backstory.

Blaine, since I like how he had the guts to live near an active volcano. He also looks better than the others too.

My favorite will always be Blaine. He seems some mysterious person with his quizzes in his Gym. He is a scientist, but his Johto sprite shows he is a typical tourist as well. In the Pokémon Adventures manga he shows to have created Mewtwo, even being part of it, which is totally awesome.
My second favorite is Sabrina because she has psychic powers as well, being almost a psychic Pokémon herself too.

Koga. The guy's a badass ninja. He has a really cool design; if you see him, you don't want to mess with him.

About the HGSS version, i like Sabrina. But she is very (VERY) different from the old version... I mean, always she has been different, since Red, Fire Red, and also in the Anime...

In the other versions I like Koga. I think he's quite great as a gym leader member and now better as an Elite four member (when i played Silver or Crystal I have to say that it's was a shocking surprise to see him in the Elite Four! And see that in "3 years" many things had changed... I just love that history. And, of course, I love HGSS). Anyway, i think it's a great Gym Leader (although i really don't like Poison type pokemons haha) so I think is great 'cause he seems self-controlled, serious and quite strong.

That's it! Take care

I like Misty's new design in HG/SS. It's completely different compared to the old design.
Not to mention the perfect combination of vest/jacket and swimsuit.

It's a toss between Erika and Sabrina. Erika because she loves nature/natural things and is traditional. Ultimately what I love. Sabrina on the other hand is a total bad ass. Ultimately what I wish I was lol.

My favorite type is grass. That being said, my favorite leader is not Erika. My friends all went Charmander to my Bulbasaur, thought they were so funny. They got to the first gem and whined, what the heck? This is garbage! All we have are normals, bugs, flying and one fire. I didn't think they deserved to know about the early access to mankeys. I love you Brock for being one shot by Vine Whip, and one-shotting their Charmanders and Pidgeys.

I agree with a lot of others here.

Sabrina = badass.

She's been the toughest challenge, and her character... well, pretty much speaks for itself.

For me, it would definitely have to be Giovanni, without a doubt.

What makes this person so distinct is, in my eyes, he is the boss of Team Rocket--a criminal organization; alongside, he had also managed to make it into as Gym Leader, which is certainly respectable. Realistically, it wouldn't have been an easy task to be signing-up for such as a role if you're also in-charge something such as Team Rocket (the league might not have known about this beforehand, I suppose, allowing the guy to get through hiring process, but still), but he has managed to get it done.

As far as battling goes, he's not too easy, but he isn't overly difficult, either, which I do admire. It had taken me a couple of tries to get Giovanni beaten (in his gym) for the first time. Aside from him, I'm also a fan of Erika, as well as Misty.

This is hard. I love all the gym leaders in the Kanto region. Brock is Brock and Misty is Misty. LT Sturge is awesome, Erika is cute, Koga is even more awesome, Sabrina is a bad-ass, Blaine is Blaine and, of course, Giovanni is Giovanni. I don't talk about Blue, because the first 8 I described are the real Kanto gym leaders, so let's keep at that. I don't know wich one is my favourite, but I gotta go with Giovanni. His character is the most well constructed from all the leaders, and he is the most bad-ass of them all, just by being the leader of the greatest crime organization in the world, and secretly being a gym leader.

I have to go with Blaine. Blaine is so awesome. He's a gym leader I always look forward to battling. Fire types are one of my favorite types, and he uses some of my favorites. I like his gym puzzle too.

Blaine!, He's such a good character. And his gym is pretty funny as well, I always have troubles with his Arcanine on FR/LG.

In terms of character, I think it would be either Blaine or Koga. The former being the hot-headed genius he is, and the latter had a rad Gym full of ninja trainers and invisible walls, which was different than a lot of them present to me.

I'm not much of a fan of these Gym Leaders, except for Misty I guess. But that's because she uses my fave type, so yeah that's why my bias is towards her.

Blaine. I love his Burn Heal comment! He's got a pretty solid team too. And like Pendraflare said too, he's a "hot-headed genius!" :D

Misty beats all. Because Misty is love and life all in one package.

That, and it seems like, at least in game canon, her personality would be fun to shape and reshape. :V
