Well, welcome to the "be as critical as you can about gym leaders" thread, a.k.a, the "What gym leaders you hate" thread - 1st and 2nd Gen edition. The name of the game's simple enough. You don't have to hate-hate them, disliking's fine.

Discuss.

I don't think I hated any of them, really. If I had to pick some annoying ones though, Misty in RBY is definitely a pain. Starmie is an amazing Pokemon and having to fight it so early is just...terrible, especially since I'm a Charmander kid. lol

As far as GSC goes, I am actually going to go with Chuck. That DynamicPunch... @[email protected] Especially since I normally don't have many team members that are good against Fighting. It seems like I always have a bunch of Normal types at this point in the game (unevolved Eevee doesn't help) and then I have like...Typhlosion and that isn't gonna cut it against Poliwrath lmao. Just a pain in the butt, really. I've always had more trouble with him than Whitney.

I didn't really hate any of them. But I agree with Syd, if you start with Charmander and haven't caught anything that can battle against Starmie, Misty can be a pain.

    Hands down Sabrina. She was always the toughest to beat for me. And the fact she had that annoying teleport gym which was always a pain to get through.

      Clair not just because of her Kingdra is an Nightmare to beat, she makes you take a test before she will give a bagde.

        In 1st gen I always found Koga from Fuchsia city gym annoying with his poison Pokemon. I tried to get through it a few times without aid but in the end I had to buy a fair number of antidotes to get past him.

          I can't recall having too much trouble with any of the Gym Leaders in the first gen, but Clair gave me a rough time once Gold came around. She's the only Gym Leader I can remember having to re-battle, and of course, I never put two and two together when I was young, so I never thought to go back to the Ice Path to catch a Jynx or something.

            I'm going to disregard the First Generation since I did not have a problem with any of the gym leaders, but the Second Generation I did.......one person that comes into mind which many people have already stated.....her name is crybaby Whitney. That Miltank and her rollout and at first when I was little, I thought that she continuously would spam the move, but I had no idea it was a continuous attack; I would swear up and down around the house because of that Miltank lol.

              Whitney and Claire are both little drama queens who can't take their losses- and that's why I absolutely love winning against those. And for first gen... I never liked Koga. He poisoned by precious Blastoise, every time again D:

                I don't hate any gym leaders because they were hard to beat, but I hated Whitney because she's such a brat. Also bugsy annoyed me, mostly because I was never sure if that weirdo was a boy or a girl.

                  Brock in Yellow had to have been the most frustrating for me as a kid EVER. No matter how much I tried I couldn't beat him. Pikachu, Pidget and Caterpie couldn't even dent his Geodude. I did it eventually by spamming Sand Attack with Pidgey (at least I think I did lol). I really regret not evolving Caterpie now because if I had Confusion it would have been SO much easier.

                  In G/S/C the obvious candidate is Whitney. Oh how her Miltank made me want to smash my Gameboy. I laugh now reminiscing about it because I remember how easy Falkner and Bugsy were for my Cyndaquil/Quilava and Pidgey/Pidgeotto, and then BAM. Rollout, oh lord.

                      I definitely hated Whitney and her Miltank. Then in Yellow, definitely Brock. Pikachu is practically useless against him! D:

                        Brock in yellow i can remember clear as day. i remember getting smashed. reviving my pokemon. getting smashed. reviving my pokemon. ect. (when i say pokemon i mean pikachu, and some random freshly caught wild pokemon with no training what so ever)
                        i gave up yellow for months. until i finally one day i was watching pokemon on tv and i seen that butterfree evolved from metapod. and i decided to get one. because i remember seeing hundreds of them in vidaran forest. i then decided to take on brock. and my level 14 butterfree wiped the floor with geodude and onix. to my amazement. bare in mind i was very young and had little knowledge of weakness's and type advantages. and for misty. she was easy too because of good old butterfree.

                        for whitney. i never had a problem with her because i always had a geodude by goldenrod. because i liked the move magnitude. and yeah. i will admit, miltank was tough. but not tough enough. chuck. on the other hand. now he's a good gym leader. but thats another story.

                        I really liked all of them, but I guess that Claire and Whitney were pretty tough. Chuck was also a bit of a pain sometimes. Overall though I really liked them all.

                          Misty's starmie is hard to compete with, that was probably the worst for me.

                          For Generation I, I would say Sabrina, if just because of how overpowered the Psychic-type is in those games.

                          And Generation II I'd say Whitney, I think we all know why.

                              Morty always gave me problems in Gold. His Gengar's Hypnosis attacks hit 90% of the time it seemed, and any damage that I could give to it would just vanish from Dream Eater.

                                Whitney, I can't tell you how many times it took.

                                  On Pokémon Yellow I hated Brock. Getting caterpie to level 10 for butterfree for confusion was such a chore each playthrough.

                                    In Red, I had a lot of difficulties with Misty. Sabrina was tough too.

                                    And in Gold/Silver I had problems with Whitney, Morty, and Clair. I even forgot about my Plain Bagde (Whitney starts crying after losing) and I didn't take it until a few days after beating her. I hated Clair the most because she refused to give the badge until I found the Dragon Fang.
