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
For how early in the game she occurs, and for how easily defeated pretty much every one of the other 15 gym leaders in her generation are, Whitney is hugely overpowered. She may only have two Pokémon of which only one is any good, but that Miltank deals out a punishment, even if you bring a ground-rock type, pretty much her ultimate counter.V 39 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...
Hottest leader aliveV 24 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.
She is my favorite character of pokemonV 8 Comments
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.
The first time I watched the episode with her in it I was scared to death. Even now the mystery and creepiness surrounding her scares the crap out of me.
IF YOU THINK SHE'S COOL, REPLACE "COOL" WITH "PSYCHOTIC"!V 12 Comments
Elesa is the utmost memorable gym leader there is. What makes her most ideal to lead the top is her gym theme and her intentions. Her gym is a literal catwalk. The gym theme is beyond magnificent with the music (which I wish they brought back) and the modeling. She even built an amusement park in BW2. More significantly, she opens Bianca's father's mind and convinces him to let Bianca travel with Hilbert/Hilda. Affirmatively, I believe that Elesa belongs in the top. She's a literal model being a role model. It's a double whammy!
She is beautiful and really strong. She's clearly the best.
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
GO ELESA!V 20 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!
He’s the worst. Remember the anime. “Yeah just take the badge. U did nothing but I’m to lazy to see I’m your a skilled trainer to make the league.” - boltslegendV 3 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!
Best psychic type users everV 18 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!
YOU BETTER HAVE BURN HEALV 6 Comments
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.
I got lost after being told Fantina wasn’t in her gym and went 2 Wakes instead I almost clutched his team with a staraviaV 6 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!
The coolest in anime. Had a stronger affect in the whole pokemon series than anyone else.
There are stronger but he strong
He's Gangster enough SedV 2 Comments
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
Needs to be higher. I personaly found This gym the hardest in soul silverV 9 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.
Anime for her sucks. “I’m skipping 6 months to find myself. Screwing over all kinds of trainers that can’t make sinnoh because it’s impossible to get my badge.” That’s her. Ever wonder why the sinnoh league had the least competitors - boltslegendV 7 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
Clemont should be #1 he da man.V 15 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.
He's just a very funny person, and an entertaining character on the show. - ShinyHydra1999
Brock is so awesome in the anime, and super nice in Pokemon origins, and Misty suck's by the way along with Morty! 1
Two words: Pokemon AnimeV 9 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
I can't tell ya how many nuzlocks I lost cause of her Hawlucha.V 8 Comments
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
Ok,I just beat him, it took me 7 tyres, his slacking is O.P, I had a 32 grovile, 31 gardivoir, 26 shedinja (divided I did not want him anymore) and a 20 vigoroth(wanted to get him after 4th gym) with stab facade, focus punch, yawn,and faint attack, he is one serious dude, he has a slacking for heaven's sack, witch has the strongest base stat totally of any non legendary pokemon, better then some legendarys toV 5 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.
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)
Brawly' s personality is amazing and. intreags meV 2 Comments
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.
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
Awesome! Needs to be in the top five!
He has my favorite electric type! - Pikachufan0922
I think he is pretty annoying. - sri007venkat
He's dj of the pokemon worldV 2 Comments
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
He is the hardest gym leaders of all!
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
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.
Flannery can kick Roxanne's butt, so Roxanne at 20 is stupid
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!V 4 Comments
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
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.
I don't know why I love Valerie so much, but I do. For starters, she's so pretty, but also, she has a range of talents. Her clothing is beautiful, but sewing in the Pokémon world is often associated with the Pokémon Leavanny, and being the first gym to introduce the Fairy Type, this further highlights new things. Plus, her gym is so creative - a teleportation dollhouse? The imagination put into that is higher than Skyla's ego. -Topaz
She's such a cool character that might have relations with the kimono girls!
Love her some much ❤️
One of one the easiest gym leaders I ever battled even though he Has a level 59 avalugg - Pikachufan0922
The best kalos gym leaders
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 better
NUMBER 36? WHAT? He should be number 2 next to Clemont! - RiverClanRocks
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
Where did cress go? oh wait, he is number 55, so it looks like both of his brothers are better then him.V 1 Comment
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!
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
When I used an earthquake on his bastidoon bam! It fainted. I have to admit, BYRON SUCKS!
Best “teacher” ever ... my favorite Gym Leader of all time... I’m a little upset that he is so low on this list, I love him so much! I liked him as a rival but as a Gym Leader he is amazing! I wish he was in the anime more (really ONE episode) he’s such a great Gym Leader who wasn’t that hard for me in Black2 because I had a Riolu with Counter on my team... love him!
