    Kanto. Always has been. Perhaps, it was simply because I Overtrained for Sinnoh (all my pokemon were lv58, except Empoleon and Dialga (lv60)).
    Hoenn, I initially found annnoying but I now can do it easily and Johto was a pushover!

    Kanto was the hardest for me. Johto was pretty easy, Hoenn was a cinch for me. Second hardest I would probably say Kanto.

    I think it pretty much depends upon which game you played first. The E4 (and the metagame in general) is always hardest the first time you play one of these games. Every time after that, you're more used to how the games work, and so you're better-prepared for what it has to throw at you. Personally, I remember fighting the Johto E4 first when I was ten, and not being ready for it, so they knocked me down at least three times before I got 'em.

    I will admit, though, that Kanto and Hoenn seem like they would have the hardest repertoires for a first-timer.

    Kanto. I can't beat them. That's excluding Green/Blue & Lance.
    Hoenn was easy for me, but it took a while to beat the Dragon guy and the Champ went down after I first reached him. Sinnoh took a while since I didn't train half of my team (I fail ), now its all easy. Never could do Johto since my friend has my Gold.

    Realistly I found none of them challenging. ( although I only beat Kanto's and Sinnoh's LOL), but for me it was kanto's the E4 had some quite strong lvl pokemon. Now Kanto's is too easy because I beat it 35-40 times. Sinnoh's was meh because most of my pokemon were quite strong.

    Kanto take two in Fr/Lg.

    Seriously, their entire teams raise around 6 levels.

    I hack pokemon with my AR. Don't like it? Tough.

    FFIII DS sucks, and MMX6 sucks even more, but MMX7 is just crap.

    It is said that when it roars, a volcano erupts somewhere around the globe.

    ENTEI embodies the passion of magma. This POKEMON is thought to have been born in the eruption of a volcano. It blasts fire that consumes all it touches.

    ENTEI learns Roar at level 15.

    Hoenn's E4 just downright sucked

    Kanto was the complete opposite.

    Kanto was the hardest for me x_x and Shinnoh was sooo hard too D: Johto was easy altough I was way underleveled for it. I have never played R/S/E so I dunno about that xD

    I'm surprised people think Kanto was that hard. Is it just nostalgia or what? RBY Kanto is a piece of cake, and in FR/LG, even though it's pretty challenging, it's not so bad if you prepare and level up. I actually found Agatha the most irritating on my second run through, to be honest.

    Johto was the easiest E4. It got to the point where I was bored of kicking their asses repeatedly and had to fight Red over and over. They're just too low leveled, I think.

    Hoenn was admittedly kind of tough for me, especially when I had Sceptile or Swampert. Part of the problem is that Steven's Pokemon are just so good. But then, it's not too bad at all if you can take his team out.

    Sinnoh was definitely the hardest E4 for me, because much like Hoenn before it, there was some actual versatility in the movesets and some genuinely strong Pokemon. Mostly on Lucian and Cynthia's teams, but still. Nothing was quite as challenging to beat as that Garchomp.

    Just my own opinion, of course.

    For me Kanto was the hardest to beat because Agatha's pokemon kept using Hypnosis. It was so frustrating but she was the only person i had a big problem with.

    Kanto. Johto was a pushover, because I hyped up my Typhlosion to 100. hoenn was harder, but still pretty easy. Steven murdered me a couple times, but Groudon fissured him out. Emerald-Hoenn was even easier with Sceptile and a Lv 72 Rayquaza. Umm, Sinnoh...fail. Aaron easy, Bertha easy, Flint really easy, Lucian kinda tricky with Bronzong, Cynthis was abotu half as hard as Steven.

    It took me a bit to get through Kanto's elite four when I first started playing, but I was younger and didn't use strategy like I do now. I kind of think I'm better at the games now than I was when I was younger so it's tough to compare.

    I have to say Sinnoh was tough. I beat Johto and Hoenn pretty easily, but Sinnoh gave me a lot of trouble especially the final two. I actually barely beat Cynthia in the end and I've only gone through once so far.

    I remember finding Kanto easy, even though I could have only been like, 12 at the time. I rocked the legendary birds (I figured "hey, legendary, they must be good at stuff!") and blastoise. Articune destroyed Lance until he rock throw'd, and then blastoise finished up. I'm pretty sure I had a magmar or something to take out Gary's exeggutor and venusaur.

    The real challenge was catching Mewtwo without a master ball.

    For me it was Kanto, but that's just because I was 5-6 when i got red version, I would defeat them with ease now.


    95% of all teens would cry if thy saw Miley Cyrus jumping off of a building, paste this into your sig if you have brown hair.

    I use "uber" Pokemon, I calculate stat values, I breed my way to perfection, and I care about natures. I catch my pokemon and throw them away like a piece of garbage if they are not worthy of my greatness, and I treat them like brainless drones instead of individuals. If you use this philosophy, copy and paste this into your signature. (Started by Swalot=yes)

    For me, Kanto was real hard. It took me about like 2 months to pass them.

    It might have been because I was 11, but man I remember playing blue and just getting killed over and over again by Lance and his stupid dragons. I don't remember Gary actually being that hard though....
    When I did the remakes...well I was 19 so they weren't as hard as I remember.

    For anyone who played blue and red and then did leaf green and fire red later, which do you think was harder?

    Hoenn, just because of the wierd types. Dark, Ghost, Dragon, and then you get to Steven, who just has to have Steel and Rock types.
