The only gym leader I only had struggles with was definitely Elesa. My team couldn't stand a chance against her, and the only thing I had to do was get a ground-type to cover up the bounds. I had to grind massively when challenging Elesa, and after all that, it was worth it.

Lenora was really the only Leader to give me a hard time. Also the only one that made me attempt the Gym more than once. =(

For me, the most difficult gym was definitely Skyla's.

This is because:
A: Every other gym was a breeze, my Pokemon just ruined Gym Leaders for the most part.

B: My Four-man team just wasn't ready for that darn Swanna. My team at the time had nothing to deal with water types... And BOY did I get a kick in the rump for it.

Elesa, but only in BW for some reason. All my Pokemon were slow and kept being paralyzed by Static. All the other leaders were pretty easy.

I played through White a while ago, and I sort of breezed through that gym without even leaving for PokeCenter. I think it was because I had a Zebstrika on me though for her gym. I personally felt that as long as you had some sort of Electric Pokemon, her gym would be easiest of them all.

My hardest has always been Lenora with Elesa coming in close second.

I say drayden, but, that might just be because of my liking for a specific pokemon type

Would that be... something that resists dragon maybe? (Just in case you accidentally mistook hardest for favourite!) As for me Drayden was still pretty easy tbh, I didn't really need to grind that much for him or Iris but I was a high level anyways.

I had no problem with Lenora because of my Servine and Sawk, but Drayden was very hard for me. His Fraxure along with his Haxorus was very strong with Dragon Dance and somewhat overleveled me by just 5 levels that I had to restart at least 2 times and replace one of my Pokemon by a Deino.

But I thought you can't get Deino until Victory Road, which is after you defeat him?

Anyways, he did give me a little trouble cos I lacked Ice-types on my team.

Iris. Her and her Haxorus gave me quite a bit of trouble. Dragon Dances and Dragon Claws were deadly. I didn't have an Ice-type on my team (because I didn't want an Ice-type) nor Ice-type moves. Had to attempt the gym a few times before i finally defeated her. D:

Lenora wasn't too hard. Her pokemon hits strong, but my Lillipup hit stronger. (Y)

Elesa wasn't much of a difficulty too, just a little annoying with stupid Volt Switch. I didn't get a ground-type (because I didn't want to).

I would say Elesa was the hardest because I started off with Oshawott. Her Emolga outsped all of my Pokèmon's.

I hated Elesa's Emolga's Volt Switch. The others I can beat, one or two I need a rematch but Elesa took 15 times, my last go through.

For me it was Lenora and her Herdier, even with my Pignite that thing was hell incarnate.

None of them were too hard to beat which was a disappointment but the most trouble i had was with Brycen because i didn't have too many type advantages against him.

I actually found Chili the hardest, because I had only my starter. That was entirely my own fault, but I don't use Pokemon I have no intention of using later, and I didn't get a second Pokemon in Black for quite a while. I had to level up my Snivy quite a bit before I could beat the Gym, which only added to my ire at the game at the time.

Lenora. Simply because I had to go and catch a Timburr in order to quickly defeat her. At least the first playthrough of my White. Second time was easier since I actually bothered to evolve my Tepig before dropping it for Darumaka. Other than that I didn't really have a problem with any of the gym leaders. Little disappointing but eh, it happens.

But... are there any hard gym leaders in BW? They're all easy to beat, in fact, this is one of the reasons that makes BW so easy. Yes, you may find a little trouble fighting one of them, but I'm sure they're not like Whitney's Miltank, for example.

I had trouble with Clay, simply because the only fire type I used in B/W was Litwick, which you catch afterwards. I usually have to evolve my Dewott before taking him on, or taking a hit to use revenge.

Hmm I would say Elesa. I think I caught a Sandile but I didn't have a lot of patience to train it. Darn Volt Switches and Static. Only in BW2 did I catch a Drilbur.
Oh, nothing compares to Whitney's Miltank. >:o

Clay was a ****ing nightmare for my team in B2 but since this is BW instead I'll have to say Iris since she was the first gym leader in a long time that's made me actually switch out members of my team just so I could beat her when I got to her.
