Thinking back, while I didn't really have a problem beating him at all, Blue (both in GSC and HGSS) would have to be one of the toughest Gym Leaders. He's the only one that doesn't rely on just one type of Pokemon, causing you to need a little bit of strategy going in rather than just sweeping through with one Pokemon with a type-advantage. And aside from rematches, Blue has the highest leveled team when you first face him, which also poses more of a challenge. And while it wasn't the case in the second gen, HeartGold and SoulSilver's version of the Gym was frustrating with all of the floor tiles that moved you in different directions, so you had to put in some effort just to get to the point of battling him.
