The Top Ten

1 Sabrina Sabrina Sabrina is a fictional character in the Pokemon universe as the gym leader of the Saffron City Gym who specializes in psychic type Pokemon.

Sabrina might be the creepiest things in Pokemon, I mean who would use psychic powers to turn people into dolls?

Surge is a fictional character in the Pokémon series and the Gym Leader of Vermillion City who specializes in electric type Pokémon, in the anime he's extremely arrogant, aggressive and refers to other trainers as babies for not meeting his qualities his main Pokémon is Raichu who he evolved more.

A guy who purposely tries to have his Raichu injure other trainers Pokémon - egnomac

Along with Violet and Lily the three sisters were the least qualified gym leaders running the Cerulean City Gym while Misty left to become a Pokémon trainer, after just three loses one of which was Gary they completely gave up having Pokémon battles and focused on their performances and just handing out gym badges to trainers and not making them earn them at one point they were going to give Ash a badge until Misty stepped in and battles Ash her self as she's the only sister who can actually battle, several seasons later they straight up abandon the gym and put Misty in charge without her having any say in the matter resulting in her having the leave Ash. - egnomac

4 Flannery Flannery

Flannery was literally handed the reasonability's of being Gym Leader from her grandfather unfortunately he forgot to actually teach Flannery on how to run a Pokémon Gym as Flannery barely knows what she's doing and doesn't even know the rules of a Pokémon Gym battle or even where the gym badges were. - egnomac

5 Violet

Same as Daisy and Violet, all three of them have no business running an official Pokemon Gym. - egnomac

Though a really strong trainer but after a awhile he stopped caring and just started giving gym badges away for free to trainers and not making them earn them until Ash and Flynt convinced him to return to being an active gym leader. - egnomac

10 Erika Erika

She refused to let Ash into her gym and challenge her for a badge simply because he insulted her perfume shop casing him to dress up in drag so that he could sneak in while yeah Ash was a jerk for insulting her perfume shop but she's still a gym leader and has responsibility to accept any and all challengers no matter what. - egnomac
