    Elesa. My only pokemon with a Rock type attack was my Lucario with Rock Tomb, so I keep him in for the duration of the battle. Elesa keeps Volt Switching until eventually she switches into Zebstrika. I had forgotten that her Zebsrtika knew Flame Charge and my Lucario was down in one shot D:

    I had no trouble, whats so ever. I found it really easy, so I didn't have a problem with any of them. I mean, the last gym leader has 3 Pokemon, way to easy in my opinion.

    Clay. His Rxcadrill was really strong and tended to KO all my Pokémon..

    I struggled with Burgh the most. That darn Leavanny! It always KOed my Oshawott with Razor Blade. ;^; (And, no, I didn't have a Pansear.)

    Elesa was the hardest for me, with her Volt Switch Emolgas and Zebstrika with flame charge. It was really tough with Servine..

    I never really found any of them that hard, but I will admit to being guilty of massive over preperation. I went into most gyms with a two or three level advantage...so that might have helped.

    I didn't really find any of them to be challenging, but if I had to choose I would probably say Iris. Just because I didn't have any SE moves against her pokemon. However I found Elesa to be extremely annoying because of her Volt Switch abuse. I felt it was even worse in B2/W2 she was constantly using Volt Switch multiple times in a row. She's no Gym Leader she's a Noob!

    Lenora, mostly because I just didn't have any fast Fighting types at that point in the game to dispatch that Watchog before it used Retaliate. Elesa was a pain in the neck, too, but I wouldn't say that she was hard to beat, though...

    Burgh was the only one I had to battle a second time.
    Within my lifetime, I've done a lot of walking. I started my journey walking on a little path called Route 1. Little did I know that walking down that route would lead me onwards to a road that went by the name of Victory. Just west of Victory Road, I walked up an entire mountain where atop stood a silent trainer who was one of the mightiest I had ever faced. I've walked, through sandstorms, across the hard desert of Hoenn. I've walked through pelting hail, across the snow covered terrains of Sinnoh. And now as I look back on all my travels I find myself walking across the Skyarrow Bridge of Unova. It took a lot of walking through tall grass patches to get where I am today...But it was worth the walk.

    I didn't find any of them to be particularly challenging but Elesa's Emolga was annoying as hell.

    I thnk they were all relatively easy. If anything, the most challenging was Elesa.

    I agree that Unova had a relatively easy array of gym leaders. Probably due to the Audino allowing me to easily stay on-par with their levels, I also never found much challenge.

    For me, if I had to choose the hardest, though, the answer is Clay. That Excadrill is very efficient at giving my team a hard time, probably due to the fact that I rarely have a water type by that point (I've actually never started with Oshawott), and the only Fire or Fighting type I usually have is my most common starter choice Emboar, who is easily outsped and Earthquaked by that thing.

    Iris/Drayden took me forever to beat second time playing through...I had to go catch an ice Pokémon before I could beat Iris. Brycen was definitely the easiest gym leader for me to beat.

    Elesa. Had nothing to quickly KO one of the damn Emolgas, Servine was my strongest and couldn't stop them. Had to get a Roggenrola to stop them.

    Lenora. I lost 4 times before I found a Throh in Pinwheel forest and beat her easily.

    Elesa was hardest for me. Those fast Pokemon with Volt Switch made it hard to score a super effective hit.

    Lenora and Elesa! That Watchog and Emolga! They haunt me!
    Um but since i can only vote for one, i would say Lenora since that Watchog kept destroying my team. It's good that i had good old pignite with me or it would not end goood! Sawk and throrh (i cant spell his name) work too.
    I love every Pokemon!

    I found Elesa pretty easy. (Mostly because I used Palpitoad with potion-spamming) I think the hardest was Drayden/Iris was the hardest because the only pokemon I had that managed to kill Haxorus was Zororark in Black 2. I don't even know how I won in the original one!

    By now Oshawott would be evolved unless u were doing a solo run or hit me with your best shot challenge and not using the Pansear or evolving Oshawott.


    For me... ELESA. Yup I chose with oshawott and none of my pokemon had a rock type move. Darn. Since I wasnt using anything else and I slipped into the "under leveled" pokemon zone I had to evolve dewott (level 20 at that time) into a samurott in hours or a day or 2 leveling up 16 levels.

    Dunno why Lenora was hard for some people. On another playthrough with over leveled untraded pokemon I used Oshawott and Tranquiel for the lenora battle. I just hated retaliate from Watchog. Was that the thing that messed up peoples pokemon? Then again I don't like watchogs to battle. And hypnosise is annoying...

    The title is extremely misleading to me. I voted Burgh for that reason.

    Seriously though, for me the hardest was....Clay. My team was weak to Excadrill. EQ, Rockslide was too much for my team.

    Elesa. At the time, I only had Dewott and Pansage. Both of which I had to train extensively and evolve (much earlier than I had hoped in Pansage's case), in order to beat her. Simisage was able to take out Zebstrika and one of the Emolga's before falling to an aerial ace crit from the other. Samurott was luckily able to finish it off. Overall, it was still an extremely painful battle.
