          I only played the remakes of Gens I and II, so I'll just do Gens III-V:

          Gen III: Norman (why did he have to have 2 underleveled Slaking in Emerald?)

          Gen IV: Fantina, I guess

          Gen V: Elesa (her Volt Switching Emolga were annoying)

          I. Koga, however Brock was always a pain in Yellow.
          II. Whitney by far, for her obvious Miltank lol.
          III. Norman, cause even with Truant, Slaking is just hard to beat.
          IV. Sorry but I don't even remember these. I'm just gonna go with the one that I remember the most which is Fantina.
          V. Doubting between Lenora and Clay, they were both hard but it really depended on the Pokémon you'd have with you!

            Gen 1 - Sabrina due to Alakazam
            Gen 2 - Clair due to Kingdra
            Gen 3 - Tate & Liza in Emerald due to Claydol constantly spamming Earthquake and Xatu spamming Psychic for starters.
            Gen 4 - Maylene because her Lucario was quite the pain in the ass to take down back then.
            Gen 5 - Lenora without any doubt in my mind, I really did not like being OHKO'ed by that damn Herdier's Take Down whenever I was so close to killing that retarded little flea bag, even my Pignite had trouble with that thing at the time but thank god I scored a critical hit on one of the Arm Thrusts which took it out only to have the Watchog but that wasn't as tough as the Herdier IMO even with Hypnosis and Crunch.

            It more or less depends on the team I have at the time of facing the gym leader, really. But I'll just list who I usually have trouble with, despite my team set up.

            Gen I: Misty
            Gen II: Chuck
            Gen III: Brawly
            Gen IV: Maylene
            Gen V: CCC/Clay

            Noticing a pattern here...lol lern 2 psychic, syd.

              My votes-

              I. None (I haven't played RBY, and I didn't find any of them too threatening in FRLG)

              II. Clair (Whitney is overrated, the female Machop you can get in a trade in Goldenrod can easily handle Miltank as it is immune to Attract and resists Rollout)

              III. Liza and Tate, cause I challenged them severely unprepared.

              IV. None (really).

              V. Drayden.

                Yea, it generally depends on my team. Usually i have a fire type (My fave type) so Brock was always a trouble for me.....

                IMPOSSIBLE :cer_pissed:

                  I see your point. I played Firered with Squirtle, so Brock was quite easy.

                  I think at least the 1st pokemon gym of every game should be of a type that is neutral to all 3 starters. Yes, if the gym is of a biased type, it lets you modify the game's difficulty by choosing different starters. But most people just want to use the starter they like, and I think they should all be provided with an equal challenge . So I think the 1st gym of a game should be of Normal, Fighting, Dark, etc types, types which are not exceptionally weak or strong against a particular starter.

                  For me it was;

                  Gen I - Koga (Mainly fr/lg) Erika had like level 31 Pokemon, it's a big jump from that to 44. Of in RBY with a Level 50
                  Gen II - Whitney... that. damn. Miltank. Rollout. Nuff' said.
                  Gen III - Norman - Slaking. Slaking. Slaking. Those ugly boobs made me lose all the time.
                  Gen IV - I didn't really have a tough time with any of them, but I guess Gardenia - Like I said not much trouble, but I guess her Roserade was quite fast and strong.
                  Gen V - Lenora - Her gross Watchog. How was it soooo fast?!

                  I guess I should use Fighting types more often. :x But seriously, who has a Level 31 Slaking? >:

                    I: Sabrina, the psychic woman. I remember I had a lot of difficulties to beat her.
                    II: Clair, the dragon goddess. 2nd gen gym leaders aren't really tough I think, and she's the only one that gave me trouble.
                    III: Norman, the daddy. Because I had'nt any fighting types and his Pokémon have very high defense/special defense stats.

                    IV:
                    Volkner, the master of electrik types. Seriously; 4th gen gym leaders weren't hard at all... And I choose him only because I have to choose someone, otherwise he didn't give me trouble.
                    V: Draydon, the dragon expert. Without any ice type it was a little difficult to beat his Pokémons.

                      None of the 4 regions gave me any problems.

                      Just Elesa since it was either her Volt Switching Emolgas or her Zebstrika.

                      Now I'm kicking myself because I soon learned I could've gotten a Palpitoad before I reached Nimbasa ;;

                      If remakes don't count, I'm going to go with my first playthrough of a game.

                      Gen 1:
                      Gym 1 - Brock: Brock was hard in Yellow because all I had was Pikachu when I first battled him.
                      Gym 5 - Sabrina: Since psychic types didn't really have much of a weakness in Gen I (you can say Gastly, Haunter, and Gengar, but since they're part poison, throw a psychic at them and they'll faint easily), she was really hard.

                      Gen 2:
                      Gym 3 - Whitney: Underestimating normal type Pokémon round 1. Miltank was just a powerhouse.

                      Gen 3:
                      Gym 5 - Norman: Underestimating normal type Pokémon round 2. That Slacking was just as much of a powerhouse as Miltank.

                      Gen 4:
                      Gym 3 - Maylene: I didn't know Lucario's typing when I first battled it in Diamond, so I lost to it a lot before finally going to look it up.

                      Gen 5:
                      Gym 2 - Lenora: Underestimating normal type Pokémon round 3. Retaliation and that powerhouse of a Herdier combination is deadly.

                        Gen I: Probably Misty, especially on my first couple of playthroughs where I'd only use my starter, Charmander. Brock wasn't too difficult, but Misty and her Starmie always gave me trouble.
                        Gen II: Whitney, 'nuff said.
                        Gen III: Norman and his Slaking gave me the most trouble, IIRC. I can remember strugling against Wallace/Juan a lot too, although not so much.
                        Gen IIII: I remember Gardenia giving me a bit of trouble (I picked Piplup, can you see a pattern now? XP) I can't remember much about D/P/Pl, to be honest. :s
                        Gen IIII: Ah, this is easy. Clay. Seriously, every other Gym leader was a breeze, and th ONLY one I lost against was Clay. I think I lost twice, actually.

                          Hey boo. This thread is from last year, so let's not post in it. ;( And right now, I think each forum for each game has a "Who was the most difficult leader?" type of thread anyway, so just use them instead! :)
