      Norman's Slaking actually wasn't a problem to me.
      Whenever I attacked him, he used Focus Punch, which I broke by attacking him.
      Then each turn after that, he'd just use Focus Punch, and I'd break it every time.
      Eventually, he got KO'd.

        Only one that really comes to mind is a double battle in Victory Road where the opponents had 2 Slaking along with a Gardevoir and Dusclops that spammed Skill Swap nonstop, really didn't help that my Swampert and Slaking were already very low on PP for their best moves (Surf and Hyper Beam respectively.) by the time I took out their Gardevoir and first Slaking and Dusclop's Pressure ability made that even worse for me until I took a risk and KO'd the Dusclops with a Faint Attack from Slaking to just barely survive a Brick Break from the enemy Slaking, Swampert seized victory for me with a critical Surf on the opposing Slaking right after Dusclops bit the dust.

        But besides from that particular battle in Victory Road I'd have to say Tate & Liza just for constant Earthquake spamming.

              Hariyama and Lairon.

              Hariyama was bulky and hard to OHKO for some Pokemon (not counting super effective), so most of the time it took multiple hits to KO it. What's bad there? Whirlwind. You use up few of your Hydro Pumps on it, and when it reaches the critical area, it uses Whirlwind. You encounter it, attack it once, it uses Whirlwind. You attack it and miss it, it uses Whirlwind. Whirlwind Whirlwind Whirlwind. Worst place for grinding.

              Lairon too. Worse than just Roar is having Protect too. Hydro Pump can easily OHKO it. What does it do? It uses Protect and you waste one Hydro Pump, and in the next turn it uses Roar. Perfectly wasted Hydro Pump.

              Of course, it's not a big deal during normal plays, but I barely finished my Sapphire Nuzlocke because of them. It took ages to train everyone. If it werent for the speed button, I'd probably quit or just overlevel one Pokemon and try to solo E4, which would end up bad due to my terrible team.

                  Any Double Team-ers and Minimizers, really. Actually, all the Pokemon that used something involving accuracy, but especially the Chanseys/Blisseys running around. They nearly made me lose.

                  And this applies to FRLG, but the first time I played through them, the Sevii Islands were an awesome place to explore. In turn, there were more exotic Pokemon running about. Chansey was one of them. Of course, that's not exotic, but you get the point. My Charizard don't carry any physical moves, nor did any of my other Pokemon, so Chansey gave me hell for ten minutes.

                    Tate and Liza's Solrock and Lunatone were so trollish that I could imagine them being plastered with trollfaces. Outside of that battle, however, they're laughin stocks, but when they get together in that battle, their trolling skyrockets to a maximum, causing me to hate them a lot more. Spamming Cosmic Power and Psychic isn't so fair.

                      Liza and Tate's Solrock and Lunatone, even Shedinja was annoying in that game I remember when I was battling it I had no super effective moves because my Pokemon were knocked out and I lost to a Shedinja...

                            All the pokemon in the desert, especially Trapinch!
                            Also as a child I hated the kingdra in the E4. I always thought it was a dragon type only, So I had no idea why my ice beam's didn't stand a chance.

                              These pokemon are way overpowered for what they are. And for what it is worth, Lunatone is overpowered in Mystery Dungeon!

                                    Slaking's Facade was nothing to play with. And you still had 2nd stage Pokemon at that point. Also, Flannery's Torkoal...And it had the nerve to be holding a got damn White Herb.

                                    Man, even Wattson Magneton gave me trouble before (That's saying if you don't choose Mudkip at the beginning) R/S/E...outta all Pokemon game, I believe these gym leaders gave me the hardest time.

                                    Man, I even lost the 3rd rival battle against May; you know the battle under the cycling bridge thingy...

                                    1, She caught me offguard; my Pokemon were still hurt.
                                    2, She wipe my team out with Grovlye! It even beat my Taillow with Pursuit...PURSUIT!!!

                                      Any Pokemon with Intimidate, and by that I mean pretty much Mightyena, because there weren't many Gyarados tbh. It just takes so long to start the battle, idk, just really annoying, + the actual stat decrease.

                                          What's his faces Kingdra from the E4, I never trained any Pokemon that were like super affective towards it, and it always OHKO'd my Flygon

                                            Flannery's Torkoal with the White Herb and overheat on my first playthrough of Sapphire. I was just a kid, so I only collected Pokemon I liked and thus I had just a Sceptile and Swellow. Put the pieces together and you discover a very annoying battle.
                                            I'm a silhouette, asking every now and then
                                            Is it over yet? Will I ever feel again?
                                            I'm a silhouette, chasing rainbows on my own
                                            But the more I try to move on, the more I feel alone
                                            So I watch the summer stars to lead me home.

                                              I'd have to say either Tate n Liza, Dad, or Flannery.
                                              Emerald: I did pretty good on these gyms, all thanks to my precious Sableye -tackle hug-
                                              Ruby: Not so much... Flannery was downright annoying with nonstop ember on my Blaziken (yes, amber was a blaziken already) and Dad, I had to hate on him because he finished off my last resort shiny crobat who I love so much. GRR.
                                              Feed this Pokemon a berry or suffer from guilt. >:3
