    Default Favorite Johto Gym Leader

    The Johto games had eight amazing Gym Leaders; which were your favorites?

    I personally loved Jasmine the most because she was a reserved and quiet character and I found that endearing, plus as an avid fan of Steel-types, I admired her for her type specialty. I also liked Morty’s and Clair’s designs, plus Whitney wasn’t too bad either.

    Please explain your choice(s) a little. No spamming!

    I would say my favourites are:

    Falkner: probably my overall favourite of the Johto leaders, I've always really liked his design
    Bugsy: he's always seemed like a cute, sweet little kid to me. Plus, I've always been quite amused by all the "I thought Bugsy was a girl!!1!" posts I've seen over the years.
    Clair: I've thought she was a very strong trainer ever since I lost to her many times back on Gold. I like her personality too, even if she can be annoying, e.g. by refusing to give you the badge right away.

    My favorites are Falkner and Pryce. Falkner because I think his hairstyle is awesome, and he is a Flying-specialist which I like as it used to be my favorite type. Pryce because I think he is cool (not only because he uses Ice-types) and because he uses a Mamoswine (in the rematches).

    Probably just plain old Falkner for me. I love his design and battle start animation.

    Clair is my favorite of all the Johto Gym Leaders.I like her design and her attitude after you finally beat her.Defeating her can also be difficult because of the annoying Thunder Wave and Kingdra's type combination.Her rematch team in the remakes is very disappointing,though-Dragonair isn't even a fully evolved Pokemon.She should have replaced it with something like Flygon.Morty is pretty mysterious and cool,too.

    Falkner, Whitney, Morty, and Jasmine.

    Falkner because I loved his design since the original GSC.
    Morty would actually be the top of my favorite Johto Gym Leader list. I loved everything about him since the original too, but those droopy eyes! His redesign was awesome too because I love the color purple. lol
    Whitney because she, to me, absolutely adorable. lol Loved her bubbly personality and she likes cute Pokemon too. :P
    Jasmine I thought was pretty since the original. She was cute and simple, but I guess it's the fact that someone so shy commands a a giant steel snake... It's polarizing to me.

    Whitney, if my avatar didn't make it obvious :P She's adorable, her personality is a lot like mine, she resides in one of my favorite cities in Pokemon, and I like pink hair.

    Mine is Falkner. Like many others, I love his design. I've always had a soft spot for Flying-types as well, so that helped his case.

    It took me a moment to think about this, and I was going to say maybe Claire until I remembered Morty! I really like his reverence for the Johto legends, and his relationship with Eusine really gives him a lot of character. He also got a very nice redesign in HG/SS.

    Morty, he was like, i don't know, mysterious and calm, also him using ghost types was pretty cool. I think just the way he seems calm but tough is why I though he was awesome

    My favorite is Clair cause she is a Dragon user, Dragons are my favorite type in the games.
    Currently playing Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire and waiting for the guidebook(s).

    Currently own: X and Y, Black 2 and White 2, Black and White, Heart Gold and Soul Silver, Platinum, Diamond and Pearl, Super Pokemon Rumble, Ranger 3, Ranger 2, Mystery Dungeon Explorers of Time and Dragon Ball Z: Super Sonic Warriors. Guidebooks for Johto games, Unova games and Kalos games.

    Own quite a number shinies, especially in Y thanks to Consecutive Fishing.

    Own all 5 gen event legends in White 2, many came from my brother which I like to thank.

    Pryce because I have a thing for ice type pokemon.
    Claire because I love dragon types as well and I like her determination and personality type
    Morty because of his gym style. Ghost pokemon are pretty sick too and he is more than a gym leader.

    Jasmine is my favorite, the Ampharos quest really solidifies her as a caring person who loves her Pokemon. She's serious and mature but not overconfident and rude, either. Plus she's cute and introduced the Steel type.

    Clair was an equally awesome and challenging Gym leader in the game. I liked Clair for her stubborn, edgy, and somewhat cold attitude; something of a rarity for female Gym leaders. And poor Chuck. *Votes for him as well* Chuck was also my favorite Gym leader in the game, mainly for being the first Gym leader to specialize in the fighting type. His Gym design was much to be desired, though. But the concept proved its type well.

    I really liked Falkner. His design, to his love for bird Pokemon. Morty wasn't bad though.

    In GSC it would have been a tie between Falkner and Morty. Falkner for his design and awesome hair, Morty for his type and how he was connected to his city.

    With the remakes Morty became my definite favorite. His redesign is more fitting (not to mention much cooler) and he was even more involved in Ecruteak's lore.

    My favourite is actually Chuck which seems like an unpopular opinion looking at the poll. I like how he's meant to look strong but just kinda looks fat.

    Morty, mainly because of his design but also because he had the most interesting backstory (what little there was).

    To be honest I don't like any of the Johto gym leaders except for Clair. Her design was my favorite. She was also memorable because she made you go through that cave instead of handing over the badge. It was a nice to have an extra challenge as a requirement for the badge for once.

    How would anyone not be a fan of Pryce after his badassery in the PokéSpe manga?
    That old man gave everyone a run for their money, and sometimes just with that adorable little Swinub.

    Surprised to see Whitney get votes at all. Thought everyone hated her.
