Top Ten Worst Pokemon Gym Leaders / Elite Four


The Top Ten

1 Bugsy

Really, he, or she, as some people say, is a terrible idea! Pink hair, short jeans, neon green. - moonwolf

Is Bugsy a boy or a girl? Seriously, look at him/her. It doesn't help that he/she specializes in the type with the lowest average base stat total.

I beat this guy/gal. WITH MY CHIKORITA. AND JUST MY CHIKORITA. Moral of the story? Don't hate on Chikorita, hate on Bugsy.

Worst trainer of all time

4 Clemont Clemont Clemont originates in Pokemon XY, created by Nintendo & game freak. is a gym leader of the lumoise city. He specialized in electric Pokemon and is known as a genius. more.

I'm honestly conflicted about this character; and I'm drawing most of the inspiration from the anime. He's a decent brother and a good friend, but in context of the series, he's the least developed. Oh and if you're facing him in the games, he might as well be down graded to second gym leader position. He sucks as a gym leader and the least developed in the series. - Thifer20

Cute, Handsome, Nerdy, Cool, and motherly in the anime. Coldhearted, neglectful brother in the games. Geez! Just take care of Bonnie like you do in the anime!

We don't yet know how tough Clemont is as a gym leader. So I can't rate him now. - Kiteretsunu

Gross nerd

A Pidgey and a Pidgeotto. Best. Team. Ever.

His Gym and his Pokemon were GIVEN to him by his OWN Father. Yeah, that's how much he sucks

That gosh darn idiot. He's a fraud. Pidgey. PIDGEY

He sucks so bad he has to spam sand attack and roost to be even decently good

7 Cilan Cilan Cilan is one of the three Gym Leaders of Striaton City's Gym, known officially as the Striaton Gym, in Pokemon Black and White. In the anime, he is classified as an A-class Pokemon Connoisseur and traveled with Ash Ketchum in the Unova region. He first debuted in Triple Leaders, Team Threats!.

Why did you put cilan on duh list he is awesome

What is Cilan doing on this list? I don't get why everyone hates him! - RiverClanRocks

Ignoring the anime, cilantro shares his spot with two others and is replaced in the next game. This leaves a really boring first impression that's never expanded upon. I'm not the biggest fan of pansage, his signature Pokemon, either. Cilan is just forgettable.
Regarding the anime, the 20 episodes I watched and the movies he was in made me dislike him. His voice was annoying and his talks about food boring. I can see why people would defend cilan. I'm only voting for him out of process of elimination

8 Glacia

I don't know if it is just me, but I just can't stand Glacia. I only played Omega Ruby, not the original one, so I don't know if she was better or worse. She was forgettable, and I didn't really like what she said before the battle. Her design is really nothing speical, and she was the number one person in the whole game that I had trouble with beating. My Pokemon were always getting confused, and were always getting frozen. I had to waste 8 revives and over a dozen full restores to finally kill her stupid Froslass. Right when I kill Froslass though, I was like, "Finally... Wait... She has ANOTHER FROSLASS!? DANGET! " I haven't played the original Ruby and Sapphire yet, so I can't say much more but in omega and alpha, I just really hate Glacia.

I thought glacia was elite four...

She just was forgettable, but not as disappointing as Wulfric.

The Contenders

11 Aaron

Aaron uses one of the worst types of Pokemon. And to those who says he's the one with the Lucario, the Aaron we are talking about is in the Elite 4.

I ALWAYS forget about him, because he doesn't really have anything to do with the plot.

Aaron, the one that died with the Lucario? Ya, he was really annoying. I don't know any other Aaron, so..

He should be steel not bug his name explain it

How dare you I loved her mil tank it made me feel accomplished when I beat her

The Clefairy was more of a problem than the Miltank. You were given tons of chances to block out the Mitank, but Clefairy could even have Sacred Fire!

You hated her Milktank too and you know it...

She's really not that strong on pokemon silver I destroyed her with only quilava just use smokescreen twice and quilava was only lv22

13 Maylene

Can I ask what the hell Maylene is doing here?

14 Wulfric
15 Clay
16 Elesa Elesa

She is a cheater, can you believe that in the anime, Zebstrika dodged Swift from Bianca's Minccinno? An attack that NEVER misses ACTUALLY MISSED. I don't like her and she annoys me in the anime, I don't hate super models but she's got to be the worst. Sorry, guys. - ClassicGaminer

Despite her emolga's, this girl was pretty cool. She is in my top 10 favorites to be honest

Elesa is really irritating in the anime, and her quotes are annoying. PLUS (it's my opinion, I'm not being whiny and judgemental like I used to be) the fact that I just HAPPEN TO HATE SUPERMODELS!

Preety hot and sexy for not being a blond

17 Clair Clair

The worst part about Clair is that you have to go out of your way to do something for her to "prove your worth" when you beat her instead of getting the final badge. At least with Jasmine, there was a sick Pokemon in need of tlc, but Clair just has anger management problems.

Will not give the dang badge! 😤

18 Valerie Valerie

Uses the worst pokemon type of all time. - pokemonrater

But...but I love Valerie ;_; - InklingSethO

20 Lt. Surge Lt. Surge

In the manga he almost killed Red, and when facing the Masked Man, he almost blew the man and himself up! On purpose! - Thorite_Gem

Hands down one of the lamest gyms puzzles. All you have to is search for two switches in each bin.

His puzzle is so aggravating, but there is also fun to be had with it.

I hate this guy for some reason. Don't know why. - RiverClanRocks
