Most Difficult Boss Battles in the Pokemon Video Games

The Top Ten
1 Ghetsis Ghetsis Harmonia, or simply Ghetsis, is the main antagonist in Pokemon Black and White and the direct sequels, as well as the adoptive father of N, Concordia, and Athea.

His Cofagrigus can easily stall you to death with a hugely amazing combination of toxic, defenses, and protect. And then there is his Hydreigon. Who pretty much outspeeds all of my Pokemon and has the coverage in order to easily be able to easily one shot them.

When I played Pokémon Black, I hated fighting Ghetsis. You fought him after N, allegedly making you the champion, but no, Ghetsis just has to intervene for no reason! Thank god for my Embroar.

Hard battle set to the beat of ominous drum beats and Latin chanting.

2 Cynthia

Me: Finally! The champion! Let's see what...
(Piano starts up)
Cynthia: I've been waiting for you, kid. You wanna know why I'm wearing black? It's your funeral.
Me: Eeek! (Flies back to Twinleaf Town). Faster, Staraptor!

She's way too hard in Diamond, Pearl and Platinum. I think her difficulty is getting toned down in Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, though.

Every single Pokemon on her team is extremely dangerous. literally all of them. her Garchomp will haunt me forever. That thing is a hacker. How is it so darn good at scoring Dragon Rush flinches? The only way to remedy him is to have a strong special attacker who has ice beam and then also outspeeds him.

Also, at the time, her Spiritomb literally had literally no sorts of weaknesses whatsoever.

Cynthia is hard but there are other fights that are much harder than she is.

She is the only champion that actually needs a well balanced team

3 Totem Mimikyu

I played Pokemon Sun first and he Always outspeeds me and one shots me with Play Rough. His ally pokemon always outspeed me and put me to sleep with Hypnosis. the only reason why I beat him on my very first try was because I always spammed revives during the battle. But well for whatever reason, he was much easier for me when I played Moon and I am really not very sure why though.

4 Whitney

Everybody knows the story of her overly terrifying Miltank. in my opinion.

Drinking milk to heal.

5 Darkrai (Pokemon Mystery Dungeon 2) Darkrai, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Cresselia goes down in history as the biggest waste of time in the history of Pokemon companions.

I love Darkrai! And Darkrai is so annoying to beat!

6 Clair

Her Kingdra was, at the time, only weak to Dragon Type Moves. Which I never had at that very moment in the Video Game. Ever.

She was awful in crystal.

7 Greevil

Greevil makes Ghetsis fight look like a joke. If anyone played Pokemon : Gale of Darkness, they know what I'm talking about.

NO! STOP! this is the longest video game boss battle, even longer than that ugly absolute virtue!

8 Evice
9 Elesa

Her Emolga's Volt Switch Spam was horrifying in my opinion.

Her sequel battles aren't that difficult, but the prequel versions... hope you like those two Emolgas. c:

10 Ardos
The Contenders
11 Fantina
12 Juan
13 Lenora

For whatever reasons Normal Type gym LEaders have always been able to be giving me among the most trouble. Her Watchog was irritating as hell and while her Herdier was not quite as bad I hated her Herdier too.

Well, if you chose Oshawott, this battle should be smooth sailing. Tepig and Snivy, on the other hand...

14 Norman
15 Blue

I have to admit, I hated his character but he really truly did have one of the most competitively balanced teams in the whole entire game.

16 Primal Dialga
