Brock, Misty, Lt. Surge, Koga, Erika, Sabrina, Blaine, and Giovanni are the gym leaders encountered in Red, Blue, and Yellow.

Who is your favorite?

I've always liked Blaine the best, due to me loving fire types, but Sabrina is a close second!

    Erika gets my vote. ^^ She's also my favourite Gym Leader in General. Grass pokemon could be quite great from Gen 1, with their mixture of power-type moves like Sleep Powder, and they weren't too, too bad offensively. Erika back then liked to use Pedal Dance with her Gloom, which would of done great deal of damage, if I hadn't had Charmeleon and Ivysaur of course, ohoho.

    Misty is a second, with a cute Mermaid-esque theme. Starmie was quite tough without the proper training, so it was good that the game kept you on your toes and helped you to remember to take advantage of type advantages.

    My favorite is misty, water is my favorite type so it was nice to see a water gym leader that early. She also has a pokemon that combines my two favorite types, Water and Psychic (Starmie).

        I like Giovanni for his history. He is strong, he is dark and but he is also one of the league boss. I like this.

          I love Erika because grass types are my favorite. Her team in G/S/C was slightly difficult, but the combination was pretty okay, imo. Plus, the old man standing outside was quite amunsing.

          All the Kanto gym leaders look so grim somehow. Even with Erika and Misty in the bunch. Well, maybe not grim, but serious.

          Misty has always been my fav, ever since I bought my first TCG deck that was the Misty deck <3

          Totally Sabrina!! She's like, one of the most badass Gym Leaders not just in Kanto, but in the entire Pokemon world to me! Ever since the anime (when I was really young) I've always wanted to grow up and develop Psychic powers like she did. u__u

                Misty and Sabrina all the way. Both win for their anime portrayals, and the latter just happens to be cool and badass, in general. I also really love Water and Psychic types.

                  The original Sabrina is one of my top favorites of all time, but I also really like Erika because we share the same favorite type and i always liked that she had an appreciation for traditional Japanese culture

                    My favourite Kanto Leader is of course Erika. She uses Pokemon of my favourite type Grass and has a serene personality, elegant design and an odd character quirk of falling asleep.

                    Her main Pokemon is Vileplume. One of my favourite Grass Types that I have used extensively in my Monotypes.

                    Sabrina is my favourite gym leader in the entirety of the Pokémon world, not just Kanto. I'm still not quite sure if I like her because she uses my favourite type(not to mention my namesake), or if it became my favourite type because I liked Sabrina so much.

                      I'm a massive Misty fan, but I'm only turned that way namely due to Water types being my favourite type of Pokémon. But her role in the Anime kind of of drew me to her and she's the only one of the followers that Ash should of been with really but that's shipping and completely different aha. But if not Misty than Koga as he's a Ninja and Ninjas are always awesome!

                          In order from favorite to least favorite:
                          1. Sabrina
                          2. Erika
                          3. Blaine
                          4. Giovanni
                          5. Koga
                          6. Misty
                          7. Brock
                          8. Lt. Surge

                          I like everything about Sabrina. Psychic is one of my favorite types, her outfit is awesome, and she has beautiful hair.

                          I'd probably say Sabrina is my favourite of all the Kanto leaders but, for me at least, they have a great bunch to choose from. Brock, Misty, Koga, Blaine and Giovanni are all amazing too. Add Surge in too because of him namedropping the Great Pokémon War etc.

                          Sabrina really creeped me out in the anime when I was a kid. When Brock and Misty were turned to dolls along with her parents in the doll house I was freaking! She is a master of what is probably my favourite type. Her role in the manga is absolutely awesome too - TEAM FREAKING ROCKET?! A more personal reason is that when I was a kid my dad bought me and my little brother a starter deck of Pokémon cards each and since I am was an idiot
                          I chose the Surge deck. My brother ended up having tonnes of cool cards that I was immediately jealous of, haha.

                            Erika. No doubt about it.
                            I'm a big fan of grass types and she's in one of my favorite cities (only because of the game corner and the free Eevee.)

                            Due to the episodes that Showcase her in the Anime Sabrina takes the cake here! But had I not watched the anime I probably would have liked Misty the best :3
