Thread: top 10 Favorite Gym Leaders

  1. #1

    Default top 10 Favorite Gym Leaders

    So going by anime apperance only....who are everyones top 10 favorite gym leaders? They had to have appeared already in the anime...in america. So we cant count Maylene yet.

    So From Brock all the way to Gardenia....Whats everyones top 10 list look like? You can base it off of there apperance, or characteristics or team or any development they might have gotten. Anything, but share your reasons if you would like!

    For myself....i will put a quick little list together.

    1-Blaine
    2-Wattson
    3-Flannery
    4-Norman
    5-Morty
    6-Lt.Surge
    7-Claire
    8-Pryce
    9-Brawly
    10-Giovanni

    (i could probably fix that up a bit, but thats a good start to the topic! I look forward to seeing others opinions on their favs!)

    Well, personally speaking, I think the Gym Leaders are poorly represented in the anime. But I remember the battle with Claire being epic, because Ash used Charizard during that battle.

    I remember the battle with Brawly fairly well, too....I think my top 10 would have to be...

    1. Claire
    2. Gardenia (second time)
    3. Brawly (Second time)
    4. Sabrina (second time, with Haunter)
    5. Blaine
    6. Juan
    7. Roark
    8. Falkner
    9. Morty
    10. Jasmine
    Back to give competitive battling another go, then heading to Johto in March!!

    ah sabrina totally slipped my mind.....i want her on my list cause she was like a super villan...ha ha

    It sucks that they only started developing the leaders a bit better. They were such cool characters in the games...it would have been cool if from the start they gave them all like 3 or 4 episodes...

    1. Misty - She's my favorite Pokegirl <33
    2. Brock - Cuz hes a pimp
    3. Flannery - hottest gym leader
    4. Jasmine - She's cute. ;]
    5. Lt. Surge - He's awesome.
    6. Volker - Almost as awesome as Surge.
    7. Norman - May's dad, plus he's pretty nifty.
    8. Giovanni - Most secretive gym leader there is, and leader of Team Rocket!
    9. Claire - I<3drags.
    10. Wallace - Well he <i>used</i> to be a gym leader.

    My list would be, with only GL's:

    01. Giovanni (leader of TR, the best there is)
    02. Blaine (funny and strong)
    03. Koga (I like ninja's)
    04. Sabrina (dark, mystique, kinda evil)
    05. LT. Surge (strong guy)
    06. Pryce (best Ice gym ever)
    07. Claire (Dragons; enough said)
    08. Winona (beautiful)
    09. Misty (Kinda cute)
    10. Jasmine (pure innocence)

    But i wonder do you count frontier brains too?? if so then it would be:
    Giovanni, Pyramid King Brandon, Salon maiden Anabel, Sabrina, Factory brain Noland, LT. Surge, Claire, Winona, Misty,and Jasmine.

    1. Erika - she is a living perfection
    2. Volkner - I am not sure how he will look in the anime but I love his game personality
    3. Misty - first I used to hate her but now I watch the old episodes with pleasure. She really didn't know how to speak about the feelings she felt.
    4. Clair - every woman should be like her. No doubt.
    5. Winona - she is very kind and battling is her strong side
    6. Blaine - I really adore his sense of humor. He is one of the best Gym Leaders in the show and the battle Magmar vs Charizard still is one of the bests in the PokemonHistory.
    7. Roxanne - she is nice and I liked the battle she had against Ash.

    I have only 7 favorites. The rest of GLs is okay too but I am not a fan of them.

    o8. Cissy: She doesn't get enough love. D:
    o7. Pryce: The way he was often cold and cruel was neat, and I enjoyed his story behind it all.
    o6. Erika: I loved how she explained why grass pokemon were important to her and provoked Ash to crossdress. <3
    o5. Rudy: He was pretty fun to watch as well. The way he wanted to woo Misty was just awesome, yes.
    o4. Blaine: I loved his riddles and how Kasu-chan got to figure out all of them. :3
    o3. Sabrina: The way she turned Misty, Brock, and her own mother into dolls was simply made of pure win. I want the Misty doll! D:
    o2. Lt. Surge: HEY BABY! I loved his sense of humor and cocky side. He was a very fun character to watch and get his Raichu handed to him.
    o1. Misty: If I were to explain why I adore this girl, it might as well be a pretty long essay. For short, she's my favorite and the top in my book. KASUMI > ALL. <3

    The show is rather uneven when giving devotion to its leaders. Even though apparently they're the main plot! Some of these guys I wouldn't even like if it wasn't for their episode.

    1. Wallace - heck, who doesn't love a guy with his own action sequences
    2. Winona - with frequent poses like this, and deus ex Hyper Beam swellow
    3. Koga - holds the best gym and evolves Venonat on demand?!
    4. Sabrina - cool story, cool arc
    5. Maylene - whoa for anime development
    6. Gardenia - "What a whack!"
    8. Erika - Ah, she drove our character to edges
    7. Brawly - Brave the Wave
    9. Blaine - between awesome and cheesy
    10. Juan - Anyone who could do that with a Luvdisc..

    Notable choices were Surge for killing in the American War, Giovanni, Liza and Tate's Thunder Armor, and Claire for actually performing like the 8th gym leader. Brock and Misty were DQ'd ;o

    Im going to have to say with this topic that the frontier brains are not to be included. They are cool on there own but theres not nearly enough of them, with the gym leaders there more than enough. Even the orange island ones, they are allowed to be included.

    I love these threads x3. They're so entertaining :3. Can I count Frontier Brains too?

    Tucker: I LOVE HIS HAIR. <3
    Anabel: I like her personality. It's pretty unique x3.
    Lucy: I like her clothes + the Battle Pike. :3
    Whitney: I love Normal-type Pokémon. <~
    Juan: He loves Pokémon Contests, I love Pokémon Contests. 8D
    Bugsy: Even though I hate bugs, Bugsy's Hive badge's pretty cute. ><
    Erika: C: I love Grass-type Pokémon.
    Tate + Liza: I like their badge, that's it.
    Rudy: ...
    Koga: I like his badge. <3



    THE END.

    It's hard to pick because every gym leader brings character to the pokémon world.

    So... in no particular order. Here is my list.

    Janine (She's a ninja who's awsome. Plus she gets no recognition as a gym leader)
    Blaine (His wit and humour is funny. I love answering his questions at his gym)
    Bugsy (He's young and adrogynous. Plus he's cool)
    Whitney (She's loud and funny and never sits still)
    Pryce (He's knowledgable and I love the animé storyline with him and his Piloswine)
    Claire (She is the only 8th Gym Leader out of all Gens who are female. Awsome or what?)
    Winona (Her costume amuses me)
    Tate and Liza (They are too funny in the animé and were cool in the games)
    Fantina (Her engrish makes me laugh. And what the hell is up with her dress, and hair?)
    Candice (It takes guts to wear a t-shirt and a skirt in an ice type gym in a wintery town)
