      Despite what most say, Whitney was the easiest for me. All I had to do was splurge on the TM for Focus Blast and my Furret, Pabu, 1HKO'd her clefairy and miltank. I didn't even know Bugsy's scyther had u-turn... He never used it on me, and flame wheel took it out pretty quick. The only one that really frustrated me was Clair and her stupid Dragonairs with thunder wave. I HATE PARALYSIS. SO. MUCH.

        I actually had a really tough time against that Kingdra against claire. But overall Miltank at such an early point in the game i think is overpowered, what with the milk drink and high attack/defense/hp/sp attack. Blooming nightmare it was to defeat that thing with no fighting type.

          Whitney's Miltank is just pure evil.

              All the other gym leaders were fairly easy, apart from Whitney. Her milktank spammed milk drink and rollout so my Quilava was in one heck of a world of pain. Took me 4-5 times to beat her.

                Chuck was, surprisingly, the hardest Gym Leader for me to beat. His Poliwrath kept using Double Team and, unfortunately, I didn't have any Pokemon with Foresight so I lost that one. He used a different strategy on my second challenging of him, though, so eventually I had badge number five.

                In terms of Gym design, Erika's was annoying. When I first arrived in Kanto I stumbled helplessly around looking for Brock until I had finally visited every town in the region before beating any Gym Leaders, so I found myself Flying around moving all the way up to Blaine before it hit me: I needed to face Erika. The Trainers there were surprisingly easy because I had my cute little Sparky, my Typhlosion, with me. *pats Sparky's head* (Sure, you wouldn't exactly call a vaguely reptilian, taller-than-the-average-human fire-wielding Pokemon "cute", but that's just me.) The only thing I had trouble with was - surprise - finding where the walls were. -.-"

                  Whitney. No matter what I did, I always had to catch a Drowzee and trade it for that guy in the mall for a Machop to beat her.

                  As much as Whitney can be a pain Claire's dragon's aren't exactly friendly to my team. With Whitney I can spam fighting moves at least. I never have the right moves for Claire.

                      I think Claire and her team is a whole lot worse than Whitney and her Militank. I'm not saying Whitney and her team is easy, I'm just saying Claire has freaking pain-in-the-butt Dragon types. I had to go find some pokemon that could learn ice moves to finally defeat her. And isn't it spelled Clair? I'm just wondering.

                      Whitney and her annoying Miltank with Attract, Milk Drink and Rollout. Most annoying gym leader in any Pokèmon game.

                        I remember losing to both Falkner and Whitney quite a few times in HG. Claire was difficult too but I did end up beating her on my first try.

                            Chuck with his stupid Hypnosis and Focus Punch combo caused me a lot of trouble. Made me use 10-15 revives to stay alive.
                            Whitney was easy for me because I had a female Feraligatr. So Attract didn't work.
                            Claire wasn't that hard because I just spammed Ice Fang pretty much.

                              On my first playthrough of HGSS, I had no clue why people complained about Whitney. Then I learnt about her freaking Miltank >. Attract,Rollout,Stomp,Milk Drink : Ultimate Moveset of Doom.It was a nightmare until I finally got a Female Heracross to help me out :D.
                              Other than that,Claire's Kingdra was real tough too.

                                Claire! I'm usually pretty under levelled whilst playing the main stories so her strong Dragon type Pokémon did a lot of damage to me haha. If I remember correctly it was her Kingdra which was the main problem, that thing was horrifically strong :x

                                  I don't remember my first time, but in rematches, Sabrina's Wobbuffet is EVIL. It's probably the only Pokemon that can beat my Mew. Blue is also very tough. He's one bad-ass trainer. But the best thing: He doesn't use Wobbuffet.

                                      Whitney. Always had to plan how to take out Miltank if I lacked Machop.

                                        I gotta be one of the few people that thought Jasmine was the hardest. T_T

                                        I had no Fighting, Water, Fire or Ground types.. and she kicked my ass. I know those types are easy to come by, but of course I've also gotta be the kind of guy who tries something that isn't overused. :D

                                          The hardest gym leader by far in the HG/SS games was Whitney because, her Miltank never failed to used Rollout and completely KO'd my team.
