Top Ten Pokemon Gym LeadersPokeking
The Top Ten
Whitney is strong and amazing gym leader who is amazing with normal type Pokemon now she may be a baby when you beat but trust me your gonna have a hard time with her but that's a good thing now one reason she is so hard to beat is cause of her miltank I'm guessing she's known a lot about miltank the fact her uncle has a farm of miltank but overall she's sprited gym leader who's fun to go against
That damn miltank she has knows stomp which can also flinch you, attract which can infatuate the male Pokemon (a pain in the ass), the killer-move rollout which eradicates all of your Pokemon step by step and even if you manage to land a hit on the damn miltank, it can heal itself with milk drink... What a powerhouse it is -_-
I beat Whitney on my first try, and Miltank wasn't a problem for me. But I must admit, Whitney is kind of good. But what I don't like is how she cries when she looses. A bit of a cry baby... but still good. - anythingispossible
Do you really have to use that OP Miltank?V 35 Comments
At a time when dragon types had two weaknesses, ice and dragon, having a gym leader with a Kingdra was insane. To beat it you had to just over power it and Kingdra's stats were nothing to sneeze at.
If I had to fight Whitney and Clair in a double battle I would die
Clair was the reason nine-year old me never beat SoulSilver lol. That Kingdra...
That Kingdra Do!V 22 Comments
Morty is so awesome. I like this layout of his gym. I like the type he uses (Ghost--and come on, what is cooler than Ghost type?! ) I don't know how Whitney is at the top. She is a cry baby and her Miltank is super annoying. I don't get how Clair is above Morty either. She is so stubborn and will not give you a badge until you go through a cave and do a test. Morty, however, is none of those things. That's not to say he doesn't put up a fight either, he was a worthy opponent to battle against. I eventually beat him with my Raticate--but the move "Curse" that was used in his gym was so annoying! That's also why I think he should be top gym leader. It was a challenge to beat him--but when you did, he was gracious about it. One more thing (because I noticed some comments for Clair stated she was 'sexy')... Morty is pretty cute
I love morty I think is the most interesting of all gym leaders he has extrasensory perception and clairvoyant powers and he have control of ghost Pokemon who are the naughty type he is really friendly and handsome his clothes are cool and I like his blonde makes him good face child he's so cute
The seer of the future, its perfect for him! He's cool in the anime, manga and he uses ghost types! What better type to use than that.
He is a beeping clairvoyantV 10 Comments
I like misty because she is the one main character of Pokemon and she loves water Pokemon as I. So I think misty is good Pokemon gym leader. When she battles her style is awesome.
I love misty just because she put up a good fight at the gym and her character is the best Pokemon character ever
BEST GYM LEADER EVER. I like her style when she battle with her water Pokemon. She and they are just awesome.

This girl is amazing I love her role in the anime she's gone through a few design changes but there all pretty good
Easily the biggest of a challenge in the original pokemon since the only pokemon that can defeat her are gengar and its pre evolutions.
Her Alakazam is too overpowered in Yellow. If it weren't for Pikachu's Mega Punch and Snorlax's Body Slam, I would've lost this battle.
She is makes no sence from goku, not amazing?V 9 Comments
He's the best electric type trainer I know (my favorite type) he has team versatility and ice moves, you won't beat him sorry
Without ground moves, you will be screwed.
He's Naruto's father... enough said!
Stong and smartV 2 Comments
The first double battle gym leader quite easy I won but because they use 1 Pokemon each makes it fun I mean a double battle gym they need to do that more often
Never before and never since have I lost to a gym leader more than twice. These kick-ass twins are so much more powerful in this ruby and sapphire remake that it took me 5 times, yes 5 times to beat them. Wasome! Well deserved winners in my opinion. - Pokeking
They should be number one. They are the only doubles battle and my Latios lost to them 3 times!
Maybe they are on this list because you fought both of themV 15 Comments
I picked oshawott in black who was dewott by the time she came around her gym was original and she was more of a challenge than alder but that was probably because I had to train my starter up so much that it was a samurott by the time I beat her so it was over leveled and 1hkos everything
Elesa is tough and also nice. It took me 4 times to beat her in Pokemon Black! But she kept on persevering, and when I DID win she let me pass into Driftveil City (instead of crying and being a pushover like the Top 2)
She is beautiful and really strong. She's clearly the best.
Beat the crap out of my serperior, Pretty much killed my unfezant, and destroyed my Watchog, so, yep, took me like 5-7 times to beat her.
3 words, powerful, graceful, Beautiful, that's all you need to say.
Was definitely hard. Torterra was always having a difficult time with his Gyarados and Floatzel made it pretty difficult.
Crasher Wake is baller! He's not #1 because you guys are jealous
He is a god among gym leaders. So hot. Truly glorious.
His floatzel still brings me nightmaresV 5 Comments
Blaine should definitely be higher on the list by far, he has a awesome personality, He was one of the scientists who worked on CREATING Mewtwo!, and best thing of all he created the "you better have a burn heal" line back in Generation 1!
While I love Giovanni and Blue, I always liked Blue as a rival and Giovanni as the crime boss. That being said, I love Blaine in every generation!
I think Blaine was easy but he BURNED MY BLASTOISE!
In the manga he has a Mewtwo. enough saidV 5 Comments
I can't believe he's the leader of team rocket, but what I think is crazy is that in the comics Silver is his son!
There are stronger but he strong
I did a quiz and I turned out as him
He's Gangster enough SedV 1 Comment
Jasmine is known as the steel clad defense girl but really jasmine is all about attack and speed she became the 6th gym leader for a reason she's so good jasmine is great user of steel and is great gym leader good luck against her
Not only is Jasmine a great battler and a good sport, her request before she gives you her badge is showing a Pokemon some TLC, which also shows that she is very kind-hearted.
Jasmine is called the steel clad defense girl but she's really all about attack and speed she's a great gym leader she sprited to she seems nice but when it comes to gym battle watch out cause she may look weak she's really good if you haven't battled her yet good luck - Tinkerbrat
Cute, and strong. My favourite gym leader of the bunch!. - BillowPillowV 8 Comments
I'm not voting for Blue as a gym leader, but, more as a character. In Gen 1, Blue was a total ungrateful brat, always thinking he had bragging rights. His snarky attitude led to his downfall, as he lost his Raticate because of his desire to push it forward and not show it any love, and lost his possession as Pokemon master to Red, who was quite unlike Blue. Fast forward two years, Blue tries to kill himself because he doesn't think he was important. (I read it in Japanese special manga) Red gave up his position as champion to Lance, because with Giovanni gone people were getting their 8th badge for free. Red took Giovanni's spot for one year. After that, Red went missing, and Blue knew this was his chance. He became the 8th gym leader not bothering to care about his rival's disappearance. Fro, that day forward, Blue showed care and compassion to his Pokemon, and became more of a mentor to the trainers that lost to him.
Unlike all the other gym leaders he didn't specialize and had a balanced team, catching those that were unprepared off guard.
I don't know why blue is higher than Whitney because Blue has a balanced team with strong Pokemon. And hello people he's was a former champion enough said
He's a Champion, Rival, a Gym leader, and he has no type specialzation. Difficult and fun.V 6 Comments
She may be arrogant, but she's definitely strong. I underestimated Ghost Types until she came around. Besides, she's beautiful in that dress.
I got threw her by luck when my monferno used flame wheel and burned her. Had just enough hyper potions and Pokemon to last her out.
She may be arrogant but she is strong for a ghost type user. Plus she is GORGEOUS in that dress.
Come on fantina should be in the top 10 she was my hardest gym leader until whitney came alongV 6 Comments
I can't believe how low this is! Clemont is my favorite reason being because he's smart, but I can't take him seriously in the anime series. What I mean is he's the only gym leader that has glasses. That's the reason why I can't take Clemont seriously, but come on! Why so low on the list? Clemont in my opinion is a gym leader that needs more attention. (but I can't take him seriously with Bonnie right beside him. Bonnie is just so cute.)
He is a cute blonde guy gym leader!
I like his battle style he always uses strategy
He’s really easy to defeat. Hands down terrible gym leaderV 13 Comments
Has a awesome mega lucario and kicks everyone's butts with it
She's the only gym leader who has a Pokemon who can mega evolve so that her quite good
My Luca rip turned out to be one of my best pokemon
Korrina is a really tough gym leader. Simply put, once her Hawlucha uses Flying Press, you're screwed. I actually only won because I caught a Golett before I made it to Shalour, entered her gym, and rekt Hawlucha. seriously, Ghost-types nerf Korrina's Hawlucha. Mienfoo and Machoke were not a problem, but Hawlucha is a serious threat if you don't have a Ghost-type on your team. Now, though, my Mega Lucario is my strongest Pokemon on my copy of Pokemon Y. Her performance in the XY anime was just spectacular. Every time I watched that anime, when Korrina came onscreen, I knew that it was automatically a great episode of the anime I was watching.V 7 Comments
Remember playing red or blue, you find the first gym, but Brock at first is impossible to beat. It took me like ten tries to finally beat him. The second hardest is Watson, from ruby and sapphire, which took me three to beat him.
Brock is so awesome in the anime, and super nice in Pokemon origins, and Misty suck's by the way along with Morty! 1
He's just a very funny person, and an entertaining character on the show. - ShinyHydra1999
Two words: Pokemon AnimeV 9 Comments
This is the gym leader that pisses me off. You start off very easily beating him but once u get to his magneton, Just pray to God that his magneton won't uses shock wave over and over again because the MOVE never misses! - Bhoskmalet
Wattson eats Way too much.
Come on, guys! How could Norman be so low in this list? Norman is the only father of the main character you actually know. In every other generation, your father is the professor! (Well, not really, but you know what I mean). And it's just awesome how you can actually battle him! Father vs Son/Daughter! Come on guys, really? How could he be below Cilan and Chilli? - anythingispossible
Why the heck is Whitney #1? Norman is the true Normal type leader! The reason we hate her is because, Milk Drink is annoying. Norman, we hate/like him because his team is actually tough. He doesn't use cheap healing moves. Even if his Slaking has the Traunt ability, he's still a pain in the neck. Not only that, he's a serious gym leader. He's even your FATHER! - RebelGamer
Norman is stronger than Whitney promise me you'll put number 1 his Pokemon all know retaliate and he defeated my Blaziken Pikachu latias and almost my whole team but I defeated him
All the gym leaders before him are pushovers! Until Norman and Uses Yawn and really powerful moves which get STAB to Beat your swampert up. Blaziken however has an advantage.V 4 Comments
All 3 starters can beat her. So take her off this list!
She was easy for me. - RiverClanRocks
She beat my Torchic blazikens sake people
Brawly has always been the hardest gym leader in my opinion... No offense to the others, but there are only two gym leaders I hate and a few more that I can't stand there gym (Kill Elesa are else I will kill you! )
Good, but seems to much like a water type than a fighting type. But, there's too much water types so they made him a fighting type.
Brawly is easy in Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald and in ORAS (Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire)
I beat Brawly in 2 hits with grovyleV 1 Comment
She became the champion she is equal to Lance
She's a Dragon master, exactly like Lance Drayden and Clair.
Correction. She want's to be a dragon master. At least in the anime. In black and white 2 it shows differently.
Koga is my favourite gym leader! Why is he not higher?! Am I the only person who had trouble with him? Plus he was strong enough to become part of the Elite 4!
He's a ninja... Enough said.
He became an elite four
I like koga's personality in the manga and he is a third of the triad of commanders for team rocket also a gym leader and later becoming a elite four and he's a ninja which is awesome and he uses poison types which are my favorite and has an arbok who is one of my favorite Pokémon plus he's tecnicly the strongest gym leader sense besides blue he's the only one to get in the elite four. Also just a little something extra he in the manga was able to control articuno.V 1 Comment
She is the second hardest gym leader (See Brawly) And definitely deserves to be in the top ten (second. Brawly is really hard! ) Not only do I hate her gym (Until I memorized how to get passed it. ) and her Pokemon. If Brawly wasn't a much harder gym leader, she would get number one.
How does candice do it? I had to do it without a fire type cause it fainted. I was so close to winning! She good!
Candice is such a great gym leader, plus she uses strategy and is easily one of the more charismatic ones. She should definety be much higher on this list.
She is fabulous. - sri007venkatV 1 Comment
He has my favorite electric type! - Pikachufan0922
I think he is pretty annoying. - sri007venkat
He spawned the signle best Pokemon fan theory, so he gets my vote.
He's dj of the pokemon worldV 1 Comment
You do realize that she might be the strongest Gym Leader Ash has ever faced, right? Or at least one of the strongest! Whatever; the point is, Roxie really rocks.
Roxie was very easy to beat and just annoyng in the anime
He is the only gym leader in the first 4 generations to not be a first gym leader using rock type.
I was almost done with his Amaura THEN HE USED A HYPER POTION
and viola likes this jerk
lol jk I love that ship
She was really hard it took me 6 trys to beat her
One of only two ground type gym leaders and boy did he hit hard, Clay was a trainer you would be hard pressed to beat if you weren't prepared because he had a counter for everything on his team. Plus outside the gym I'm pretty sure he's the most interesting and helpful Gym leader of them all.
Clay: WHY YOU LITTLE WHIPPERSNAPPER PIPSQUEAK YOU'RE REALLY STARTING TO MAKE ME MAD! IF THERE IS ONE THING I WILL NOT TOLERATE IT IS AN UNFAIR BATTLE!
Ash: Unfair? What are you talking about? That was just my strategy...
Clay: STRATEGY?! A LITTLE WHIPPERSNAPPER LIKE YOU SHOULD FORGET ABOUT STRATEGY AND ATTACK HEAD ON LIKE A MAN! I GUESS I'LL JUST HAVE TO USE MY SECRET WEAPON! OHH ITS POWER IS ON A WHOLE DIFFERENT LEVEL THAN THE REST OF MY POKEMON. YOU HEARD RIGHT, I'M TALKING ABOUT EXCADRILL, LET'S GET TO WORK!
An amazing flying type gym leader she is good at flying plains from what I know she has a big history with flying her grandfather miles was the real gym leader but past it on to her overall she is great gym leader who hard to go against but you will get a liking to her - Tinkerbrat
An amazing flying type gym leader from what I learned is that she knows a lot about plains and her grandfather miles was the previous gym leader of mistralion city overall skyla is a outgoing go getter who is a strong gym leader who you will have a fun time batteling her
She is probably the hardest gym leader in hoenn! And to my opinion hoenn gym leaders aren't that hard
Skyla is so hawt she is the reason I got back into pokemon because the first time I saw her my wiener got hardV 6 Comments
One of one the easiest gym leaders I ever battled even though he Has a level 59 avalugg - Pikachufan0922
The best kalos gym leaders
With Flannery's strong offense with flamethrower as well as overheat, she is a gym leaders to look twice at, literally. Not to mention, a type advantage with the majority of types. She has a fiery passion that burns.
First thing she says is, "WELCOME! "
Okay, let me get this straight. Roxanne at 20, BUGSY Right above Flannery Impossible. WE ALL KNOW BUGSY, THE GYM LEADER WITH NO TALENT. AND WHY IS SHE OVER FLANNERY, WHO IS STRONG AGAINST HER. GET A LIFE!
What IS she doing down here. Lower than ROXANNE AND BRAWLY AND BUGSY
I love when she has confidence. In the anime, she told ash " Are you ready to lose? " I wish he lost. Ash should lose to bugsy. Now Ash sucks
He is my favorite Gym Leader/Champion, why is he so low on this list?
Love him as a coordinator, gym leader and champion! - sri007venkat
He is so awesome! I love his outfit too
He is the best he should be number 1! He is sooo awesome and I really really like his outfit 😍V 5 Comments
Valerie may not be a strong opponent but she was the first gym leader to show off the new type so that's something
This gym leader had broken the glass ceiling of being the first gym leader of the fairy type. Something similar to that of Jasmine of Oliveine City was also able to achieve.
She's such a cool character that might have relations with the kimono girls!
Love her some much ❤️
I love his french accent and his joking after the gym battle. I also love his beautiful milotic it is just amazing.
Juan's awesome he should be in the top 10
Why is Juan so dang low? He used to be the gym leader of Sootopolis, mentors Wallace the Champion, and uses a Kingdra!
For me, a very iconic gym leader and the reason people began to take bug Pokemon more seriously. R.I.P my chikorita
Were u doing a nuzlocke or something
Dragon master! Hottest guy
Lance is not a gym leader. He is Elite 4/Champion. - POKEGAMERZ
He's the hardest trainer In the game
Winona is my favourite gym leader. She should be number 1, and way better than Skyla and the ones in front. Why is she number 47?
She is way better than Skyla, and she was tough to beat. She should be in the top 10
Her oras sprite is HOT
Best gym leader everV 5 Comments
Cynthia is Champion. Not gym leader. - POKEGAMERZ
! Him and his brothers= Fan service! I love the anime! Too bad we only saw him shirtless three times-
"Minncino Neat and Tidy"- When Bianca pushed him and Ash in the river.
(not an episode but an ending)- "Look Look Here": He, Ash, and Iris were in their swimsuits. I loved the way it looked!
"Mission: Defeat Your Rival! ": The "chilling in the Sauna" scene. Cilan and Ash were in tight shorts.
Way to go for shirtless Cilan!
He's so hot!
Cilan is alright I like chili betterV 1 Comment
I picked snivy, and to those who think snivy is weak I beat more then half of the gym leaders first try using only my serperior.
I picked snivy, and to those who think snivy is weak I beat more than half of the gym leaders first try with only my serperior.
I think chili is kinda cool. The only drawback is that you have to pick SNIVY
I know right. Chili is good, snivy can die.V 1 Comment
She is the best grass gym leader ever
Why down here in 46 - TheUmbreon
Probably one of the only decent grass gyms in the game. =p - BillowPillow
Her Victreebel spams Wrap. - POKEGAMERZ
I really like Maylene. She has a cute design and a Lucario! She's also pretty strong, and was a great character in the anime. (Though I can't say the same for Dawn..)
Guess I'll leave a comment here. Maylene is a weird character to describe. If we never got platinum, I could see why no one would like her... But we did.
Her design is cute, if not a little weird. Unlike Korrina (who I still love) Maylene looks like a proper fighting type gym leader. She has a Lucario, instant win in my books. She is incredibly dedicated, she ran to snow point in the freezing cold. Her and candice are great together, as friends or as something more. Maylene in the anime goes through some actual problems as a gym leader and her battle with Ash is still awesome.
Maylene isn't a tomboy. That is a generic term used to describe any girl with male qualities and its almost never acurate. Maylene likes training and fighting, more male associated qualities. She also likes decorations and clothes, more female qualities. She's a diverse character who doesn't get nearly as much love as she deserves. She gets my vote.
I hate her Cherubi or however you spell it.
Bread, spread some butterfree on it and bam! Dedz! - SwampertBABY
WHEN I USED WING ATTACK, BAM! HER ROSERADE FAINTED! SUPER EASY! I HAVE TO ADMIT, GARDENIA SUCKS!
When I used an earthquake on his bastidoon bam! It fainted. I have to admit, BYRON SUCKS!
So that means his two brothers are better then him.
Cress: The forgotten brother.
HE'S THE BEST GYM LEADER EVER WHY WOULD YOU PUT HIM WAYYY DOWN AT #51!?!?
