        Norman because his gym lets you either head into the battle styles you think are easiest, or are more suitable to your team, or tackle the challenge of facing a new type of NPC battling strategy.

        Winona I'd have to say, that helmet of hers with the wings and also her hair is very beautiful plus she uses some pretty strong Flying-types.

        In Kanto, I really like Sabrina and Blaine. I've liked them since gen I though, haha. But Sabrina is just a really cool person, and I love Blaine's gimmick. I'd actually say I prefer Blaine just a bit more, haha.

        For Hoenn, I would say Wattson. I don't really have a good reason why though. I just always liked his personality and he stood out to me more when I was a kid. Plus you can get Thunderbolt from him! :)

        tl;dr I like old men.

          Koga for Kanto because he's Ninja
          Flannery for Hoenn. She's hot

              Kanto? Probably Blaine. He's p fun.

              Hoenn? It's between Wattson and Flannery. He's jolly and ridiculous and she's adorably hot-headed and I totally see them being close and having a grandpa/granddaughter relationship and they're adorable ok.

              In Kanto I'd say Sabrina, just because she was mysterious and cool.

              As for Hoenn all of them lmao. Uhhh If I had to pick just one I'd say Wattson, however they were all cool and Hoenn is the best at everything.

              I liked Winona, so I'd go with her for my answer. Her gym had an awesome maze (doors ftw!), and I liked her beauty.

              FR/LG: Blaine, classy, and my favorite type.
              R/S/E: Juan/Wallace. They gave me the most pleasant "challenge" from all gym leaders.

                  Kanto: I liked Blaine a lot not only is his gym cool I also like his personality and Pokemon-type he uses.
                  Hoenn: I think Brawly was my favourite Because of the challenge that he gives you early in the game.

                    Hmm, for Kanto I'd say Sabrina, because I like how she looks (in the games, not the anime), and because she uses the Psychic-type which is my favourite type. For Hoenn, I'd say Flannery, again because of how she looks, and because she uses my third-favourite type (Fire, after Psychic and Dragon).

                      I like Bugsy. You know, because I'm scizor and he's a bug gym leader.

                        My favorite Gym Leaders in FR/LG were Blaine and Koga. Both of them were mostly for their gym design, although I do like both of their stories going forward into the Johto games, as well.

                        As for R/S/E, my favorite Gym Leaders were Winona and Wallace, again for their gyms. Both of them had some of the more fun little gym puzzles in my mind, and Wallace even managed to get an upgrade to Champion in Emerald (even if I didn't quite agree with it).

                          For Kanto, I'm going with Giovanni, he uses pretty much all of favorite 1st gen pokemon and is also just a complete badass. He's like a classic crime boss from the 20s.

                          And for Hoenn, although I love Juan/Wallace's gym puzzle, my favorite is Norman, because it's cool to face your "dad" in a gym battle. Plus, his Slaking's mind games in R/S were really difficult to beat, but were still cool and showed some strategical thinking on Nintendo's part.

                          Tate & Liza are absolutely adorable. Ever since I saw them in the anime they've become one of my favorite gym leaders. Winona is also quite amazing though; her design is beautiful. :D

                            Wattson!!! What a character. I love him and his laugh...


                            Brilliant. One of the best characters out of all the games. Plus he gives you TWO TM's if you do that little side mission in New Mauville... And Thunderbolt is one of my favourite moves so I always do it.

                                My favorite gym leader is Flannery. Mainly because she's a fire type leader, which is my favorite type. However, it's also because she's still like a beginner, despite her being the fourth gym leader. (That's mainly just funny, but whatever.)

                                As far as main trainers go, Steven Stone takes the cake. He's just... so cool. (Not sure what else to say here.)

                                  In Hoenn, Flannery because my Swampert demolished her team. And I loved her gym's design, Lavaridge Town, etc.
