I have 7 of 8 GYMs beat, take a guess.

As for all this WHITNEY stigma, just use a well trained GEODUDE and he ROLLOUT is crap.

Claire or Whitney. Claire was strong because of dragons and yeah, while Whitney wasn't as bad as in the original Johto games, she was still pretty strong. :x

Oh god Whitney, I went into total rageface against her. That Miltank annoyed me so much it made me train my own.

I was so lucky against Clair, I beat her with an underleveled Dewgong.

I dunno, I always learned to Paralyze that Miltank, so I never had too much of a problem with Whitney. I never, ever had a file without a Mareep, so I always had a Flaffy but the time I got to her, which was able to take whatever she had before I could land a T-wave.

Claire...she was harder in the original because she had Surf. Now that she has Hydro Pump, it's easy to drain her out of PP before she starts using weak stuff, so she WAS the worst, now it's just a matter of stalling.

I found the Kanto ones harder, like Sabrina. I swear her Alakazam never misses Focus Blast.

I've just fought Whitney in my Heart Gold playthrough and really did struggle... I didn't have a fighting type so that Miltank was an absolute pain, I did manage to smokescreen it a few times with Quilava but it still seemed to hit a lot.

Normally, I use Heracross which makes her a complete joke once it has brick break.

Still voting for Whitney though, I just generally think at that point in the game she makes it really difficult.

With Rollout and Milk Drink, Whitney's Miltank destroys my team every time >.>
So, it goes without saying, that Whitney is the toughest Johto Gym Leader.

All this Whitney hate... Just use a well trained GEODUDE and her ROLLOUT does spit in a bottle.

Personally I've always disliked the Geodude family so I never used one. T-wave pretty much ends her Miltank though. Para-hax always kicks in before Rollout becomes an issue.

^With the right Nature his ATK and DEF is a force to be reckoned with.

Back to the topic, since I've beaten all 16 Gyms now. My choice of toughest Gym Leader is a tie between Claire and Lt. Surge, his RAICHU's speed was ri-DONK-ulous!

For some weird reason, I had a really tough time with Chuck's Poliwrath the last time I played soul silver. I think it took me somewhere between 4-6 times to finally beat. Other than Chuck, the rest of the gym leaders were surprisingly easy.

For me it was Jasmine since I played HG/SS without a fire or fighting type and didn't get my ground type until later into the game. Whitney ended up being really easy for me.

Whitney still is the hardest of them all, with her stomping milktank. It took a lot of luck for me to beat her.

I never really had any problems with any of the gym leaders. Back in the original games, Whitney was really hard for me to beat, but I didn't really understand how to properly battle back then. If I had to choose the most difficult, I would go with Whitney, though.

Clair, cuz at that time I had no dragon or ice type to counter and her dragons are resistant to my hits.

Nails down to Clair, Whitney, or Monty. Clair's Kingdra always gave me trouble, Whitney's Miltank gives everyone trouble, and that Gengar always seems to get me.

Whitney was very hard to beat in the original GSC, but in the remakes, I think the hardest was Chuck.

I didn't really have much trouble with the gym leaders this time around. I remember Blaine being somewhat tough. But then again half of my Pokemon were weak against Fire, and I distinctly remember falling asleep during that battle.

Clair was probably the toughest for me, Morty and Pryce as well cause I didn't have Awakenings the first time I challenged Morty haha and Pryce's Dewgong kept resting lol. But yeah Clair was the first one I was like "woah, it's on" lol.

Whitney was a piece of cake, I had a Nidoran female with Double Kick and I took her down first time lol.

Now if you're judging them by the difficulty of when you first fight them, this could be interesting. Compared to other Generations, GSC/HGSS has some notoriously hard Gym Leaders. But the ones that stick out to me as being the hardest would probably be...

Bugsy in second place, due to his Scyther being able to annihilate you if you don't have a good Pokemon to beat it. But first place is definitely Whitney! For that early in the game, that Milk Drinking Miltank of hers is a spotted-hide demon! I still have nightmares of facing that thing as a child. D:

Fricken Chuck and his Poliwrath... Such a pain in the butt. I had to train so much it was incredibly annoying... So I'm voting for Chuck.
