Most difficult for me was Winona, the Flying gym in R/S/E.

Oh boy, I had trouble with mainly two gyms in Hoenn. Norman and Winona.

Norman was difficult even with a fighting type on my team and I'm not even sure why. His darn Facade attack was too strong, I guess. I eventually learned how to beat him though.

Winona was always tough, mostly because of Altaria. It wasn't weak against anything I had and most of the time killed most of my team before I could drop its HP.

Norman was ridiculously hard for me as I don't generally use Fighting-types. I spent what seemed like hours on his Slaking.

I think it might be because I always seemed to lack electric types in Emerald, but in that game (not Ruby or Sapphire) Juan often had been pretty difficult for me mainly because of his Kingdra. But not including that I suppose it would have to be the twins, Norman, or Winona. I can't really remember who was the hardest; I think it depended on my playthrough and what my team was.

If you picked Treecko Wattson's Magneton will destroy your team unless you picked up Geodude or Makuhita.

But in general, it's probably Norman, especially in R/S where his Slaking had Counter and Focus Punch. You were damned if you did, damned if you didn't.

For me it was Liza and Tate, I had some Pokemon that could beat them easy but they'd ALWAYS use hyper potion if one of their Pokemon got down to red. So annoying. At least with Slaking it loafs around every 2nd turn so you can have some breathing room, he wasn't so hard. Winona's Altaria was tough but not unbeatable, don't let the Dragon Dances stack though or you'll get swept

Psychic Pokemon are hard to beat for the most pat, for me once I got to the Psychic gym in Leaf Green I had to really think about tactics.

I always seem to have a little bit of trouble with Brawly, but that's usually because I'm too stubborn to train more than one Pokemon that early in the game.

Overall, I'd say that the most difficult gym is Tate & Liza's in Mossdeep. They aren't terribly difficult themselves, but just trying to get to them in the gym and facing a large number of trainers on the way is a challenge in itself- one that I never look forward to.

Ugh in Emerald I caught a Mightena and Absol and trained them to Lvl 45 for the sole purpose of battling Liz and Tate. Stupid earthquake is so overpowered. That Absol is still part of my team now. But man, i dread that battle everytime i play through...

Liza and Tate, full stop. They are fairly easy to beat in Ruby or Sapphire, but in Emerald, they are virtually impossible without a good team (AKA at least 1 dark-type and maybe your own psychic). They will destroy your team if you chose Torchic.

I remember having troubles with Flannery...Heck, even if I picked Mudkip, I still had some problems with her, but smaller ones. Same goes for Wattson.

Oh, and Norman was pretty annoying as well. He still is, but...

Norman in Hoenn. God was he frustrating. There was hardly's no places to grind since everything was pretty much done by that point. His Slaking was the only annoying member of his team though, the others just added to the frustration. :(

Liza and Tate were the bane of my existence back in the day. I still hate solrock and lunatone as a result of their torment.

I've never had too much trouble with the gyms, but Norman did prove a challenge to me. That Vigoroth...

Norman was the toughest and I had Blaziken. My issue was I was pretty underleveled and his Slaking was just wow.

Psychic type. beacause their weakness is psychic so it becomes difficult to land super effective moves.

The only ones I've ever struggled with would be Wattson and Juan. I solved the Wattson problem by grinding Grovyle until it learned Leaf Blade, but Juan's Kingdra gets me every time.

Norman. Hands down. He's not too bad now, but when I was new to the game, I remember restarting the game like, 7 times because he kept beating me. The man is a GENIUS.

Norman ruined me. Even some of the gym trainers were really really challenging, and that I made a point of fighting every single one of them might not have helped that.

Juan. I hate his Kingdra, it loves spamming Rest and it also has only one rare weakness which makes it hard to 2HKO unless you're overleveled.

Norman is the hardest IMO, even if his Slaking has that truant ability it's so powerful at that stage of the game it doesn't really matter. Even if you have Blaziken as starter it's difficult to KO it before Slaking makes its move; its Slack off move doesn't help, either.
