A direct opposite to my original question;What was the HARDEST gym ever?
Well there would be a lot of easy ones.Let me list them down.
-Every Kanto Gym Leader except for Blue(HGSS)

Well,to be honest, Jasmin and Pryce were easy because of the underlevel pokemon.The Black 2 gym leaders were easy because of my awesome pokemon.Every Kanto gym leader in SoulSilver except for Blue were easy because of weak pokemon.Roark was easy because of my first pokemoniplup.Byron was easy because of my Flareon in Platinum.

Skyla in both B/W games. I never had an issue with her the four times I've yet to battle her.
I have now moved to my new account
TéaQQ for good due to personal reasons.

All rock gyms, they are always really weak, early and low level due to being so early.

Brock gym in Pokémon Yellow was the hardest gym because I just had Pickachu and it had just electric moves and tackle. I had to evolve it to level 25.

I never had a problem with Falkner because of how low level his Pokemon are, despite me always choosing Chikorita in GSC/HGSS.

Close behind him is probably... Burgh? I don't remember ever having problems with him and a Fire-type can easily wipe through his team.

By the time I get to Giovanni in any game, all it takes is one Pokemon with Surf to just completely destroy him.

Lt. Surge is by far the easiest gym leader battle ever. You catch a Diglett, and... that's pretty much it. No trouble whatsoever. Plus, there are some really great places to train around Vermilion City.

Now overall, no gym leaders on a Pokemon game are CRAZY hard, but the ones that sticks out as pathetically weak pushovers were...Well, this...And going in each regional order.

Brock: Bulbasaur and Squirtle sh*ts on Geodude and Onix.

Lt. Surge: Tch. Diglett. And you didn't even halfta level it up.

Giovanni: Was pathetic. At this point you'll have all alotta powerful attacks at ur disposal. I mean, Ground Types? Pffft.

Jasmine: Was the only easiest Gym leader for me...Strange, I know...But Quilava and Fera can make easy work outta her Steelix and Magnemite aren't anything anyways.

Winona: Now most of all the Hoenn gym leaders were poweful, but Winona was a cakewalk compared to the rest. All her Pokemon were generally weak...and the quickest way to deal with her Altaria was getting Ice Beam from the Abandon Ship...

Maylene: She's wasn't hard for me...PERIOD! Lucario went down rather easily. Having low defensive stats was downfall, yo.

Crasher Wake: Again, another gym leader relying on a Pokemon with low defensive stats. lol Floatzel was kinda hard tho...since it was fast, but I was able to one-shot it with a powerful enough Super Effective move.

Candice: Oh, mah god...Seriously? I honestly have no comment. She was the weakest outta all gym leaders.

Now, almost every gym leader on B/W and B/W2 were just. *sighs* Well, with the exception of Lenora and surprisingly...Cheren. Let that Lillipup power itself up with Work Up if u want'll be wipe out, before u can blink.

The Trio Brothers: All three were pathetically weak; Pansage, Panpour, and Pansear didn't really put up a fight. I destroyed them, before they could even begin to muster an attack.

Roxie: Nice gym, nice gym theme...but that's pretty much it. I whooped her ass and then sent her crying back to her daddy. *shakes head*

Burgh: Mm, he was actually harder on the original B/W; but that not saying that mean much. B/W2 was just a stepback for him. A Swadloon and a Leavanny? Dafaq?!! Really?!?!?!? And his challenge mode battle wasn't really...challenging.

Elesa: On both B/W and B/W2...the experience was still pretty much the same. Thrash her ass and went on mah way. It was like this for almost EVERY gym leader.

Clay: Clay was actually harder on B/W2...seriously...But then again...that's not really saying much. Da only Pokemon of his that puts up a fight is Excadrill...but itself is kinda fragile too.

Arguably, the weakest Gym leader on the game. Her Pokemon are so weak...Swanna as ur lead Pokemon is a no-no. But hey, I like her gym theme on B/W2.

Drayden/Iris: Were the hardest, easiest gym leaders. lol Only reason why I added him to this list, cuz none of his Dragons could do anything against mah Pokemon. For cryin' out loud on mah B/W2 run, I had knockout Drayden's Haxorus with a Leavanny. Attract and X-Scissor.

I like that they added new gym leaders to this game...and Marlon's pretty cool, but his Pokemon aren't. Pretty much owned him.

Basically any Gym Leader who specializes in Rock, since they have all been the first Gym so far and you can easily destroy them if you picked the Grass or Water starter, and I often pick Water.

Also, Skyla and Brycen in B/W were incredibly easy since I had both Electric and Fire attacks on hand.

Misty. Any time I reached her I always had Pikachu or another electric type, and I was in and out of there in under a minute.

I hate to nitpick, but isn't Bugsy a she?

EDIT : I guess not. I've been wrong for so many years!!

I remember that Brock was the easiest gym leader if you had a squirtle with you, but was significantly more difficult if you just had charmander.

Of recent ones and just generally - yeah - Skyla's pretty easy. Especially since you're probably sporting some freshly caught Electric types.

The first one I thought of when I saw the question though was that one time I caught an especially nice Jolly Scyther in Fire Red and had it on my team through the entire game and it absolutely demolished Erika's grass-type gym. That was the first time I actually felt sorry for a gym leader. That was more because of that awesome Scyther though...

I liked the list from post 11, so here's mine.


Brock: If you made the wise choice and didn't choose charmander then this was easy as hell. 4x weakness to grass and water lol.

Lt. Surge: Even if you chose squirtle, this was easy even without Diglett.

Blaine: Surf on a good pokemon = win. Same goes for the last gym.


Falkner: lv.9 lol

Jasmine: Steelix get OHKO'd by Feraligatr. Magnemite just dies.


1st gym: lol rock

3rd gym: Choose mudkip. Plz.

4th gym: Choose mudkip. Plz

6th gym: this is very forgettable and easy. Flying type is not the best, and the only good pokemon on that team is skarmory.

8th gym: It's the last gym. Why is there a luvdisk? It's ridiculous.


1st gym: why. Doesn't mattter what you choose. Easy.

7th gym: Yes having a million weaknesses sure helps in losing.
Adamant scarfed Blissey wins games.
