    Default Hardest Unova Gym Leader

    OK so I decided to make a poll on who people think was the hardest Unova gym leader and why. For me it was Clay. Krokorok and Palpitoad were easy wins but Excadrill destroyed me twice before I managed to beat Clay. Anyone else had a gym leader who was a pain?

    Solo'ed Lenora with my Dewott. Was pretty easy imo. Used a xdef or two at the beginning and started building up fury cutters.

    First gym on the other hand... Took at least five tries.
    Guess where meditite
    got its design from?

    I would say that Cilan/Chili/Cress were the hardest Leaders to beat, mostly because I didn't want to use the gift monkey for the battle. I suppose it would have been quite easy if I had used it, though. Anyway, my vote still goes to them.

    I've only challenged 3 gyms, but the hardest was probably Cilan, he took out 2 of my guys but the monkey saved me.

    I don't know why people are saying Lenora was the hardest, I beat her in one go. But maybe it's because I caught a Sawk before trying

    Clay was the hardest for me. I had to reset, because once Excadrill came out, it kept getting crits on everything I had for some reason. I also had no potions. Every other gym leader was fairly easy for me.

    Lenora was a pain on my first playthrough of B/W, due to a mix of my Pokemon being somewhat underleveled, as well the AI being smart enough to keep using Retaliate for STAB.

    Elesa gave me a good bit of trouble. That is until my cute little Crustle (named Debbie) learned rock throw

    Elesa gave me the most trouble out of my 5 gym battles so far. Boldore handled the Emolga twins pretty well, but I had nothing that could deal massive damage to Zebstrika. Leavanny would have done well if it weren't for Flame Charge.... doh!

    I wouldnt say any were easy (except Burgh but his Leavanny was annoying) perhaps because I didnt grind any gyms beforehand like I usually do.

    But Iris was the hardest. Just because all my types were not very effective against her. Ended up using my Zeburaikas stomp over and over again til I won.

    I just beat gym 7 last night so I cant speak for the 8th gym.

    Elesa was by far the hardest and to be honest the only gym that was a challenge(I had no type advantage or super effective moves). Had to use alot of super potions, but had no paralyze heal so that was annoying.

    Elesa was the hardest for me did every other gym in 1 try. But Elesa took me about 4 resets before I won.

    I can't honestly say I remember any of them giving me too much trouble. Probably Iris, just because I was a smidge underleveled at the time.

    after clearing all 8 across 4 saves, and using all three starters. the only gym leader i found consistently hard was elesa, electric to sort out oshawatt, and flying for snivy/tepig. as well as flame charge on the zebra.
    the first gym is made trivial by the gift monkey
    the second by the lvl 17+ throh/sawk in the nearby grass
    the third can be a pain for water/grass starter. but bad movepools and low stats on his pokemon make him ok
    fourth is a pain, as stated
    fifth is fairly 'meh' never fought him and come out thinking he was exceptionally hard, or easy
    sixth was a pain with snivy, but trivial with tepig (and rollout), or slash with oshawott
    seventh was a pain with snivy (again) but fairly 'meh' with osha, trivial with tepig
    i always had a haxorus in my team by the time i got to the eigth gym, so was very trivial too.

    the only recurring theme was how snivy has not one gym where he is super effective against all pokemon (he's weak to 5 or 6 out of 8)
    while tepig is strong vs 5 or 6 with the right moveset.

    this surprised me, as they normally give the grass starter the type advantage to make up for the less then impressive movepool and stats

    I've only done 5 gyms so far.

    Cilan-Was rather easy for me.
    Lenora-Easy one again.
    Burgh-Easy.
    Elesa-Easy.
    Clay-Easy.

    But for the most part my Pokemon were much higher leveled them theirs.

    EDIT: So I don't really know who was the hardest so far, I guess maybe Burgh.

    Elesa's the Electric gym right? She was REALLY tough. I was using my Pignite's fighting moves in that gym, but her blasted flying electric type destroyed me, so I got in a slug match with her using my Zebstrika. The battle took FOREVER!!!!

    For me it was Elesa. She kept annoying me with that Electric-Switch-Out-Attack and she always paralyzed me.

    Krokorok was very helpful against Elesa, being immune to Electric attacks made her pretty much useless. Krokorok basically took out each Pokemon with one or two hits. I've seen Lenora and Elesa being mentioned by people to be really tough, too bad for those two they didn't get a chance to show their battling style against me.

    I went with Lenora. Her Herdier is pretty difficult to take down and then she has that Watchog with all sorts of tough moves. I forget exactly how I ended up defeating her in the Japanese games, but I recall losing several Pokemon to her Watchog. Lenora is like Generation 5's Whitney :x
