Whitney and Clair, because Whitney spammed rollout and milk drink and not to mention attract, so annoying.
As for clair, her dragon Pokemon always gave my Typhlosion a hard time.
the hardest Gym Leader usually depends on what my team are.
Whitney is hell when starting with Cyndaquil, bugsy when starting with Chikorita, and Totodile makes Chuck a bit harder than necessary.
I never had the problems with Whitney in HG/SS that I did in G/S. I don't even think Miltank used Rollout the last time I faced her.
I found Whitney extremely tough when it comes to her Milktank that does the same moves over and over.

Quite a few of the HG/SS gym leaders were quite tricky, I thought.. well, much tougher than the Platinum gym leaders anyway.
For me, Whitney and Clair were the toughest (ggah, Miltank and Kingdra), though Chuck could also be pretty tough if his Primeape got 2 or so Double teams in.. in which case, that + Focus Punch could rip through half of my team if I didn't have Aerial Ace (and Rock Slide would pretty much KO any Flying-types I would try and use). Poliwrath isn't so hard; Hypnosis is thankfully fairly inaccurate, and is kind enough to miss sometimes (though not often)
Falkner can be a bit of a challenge if you started with Chikorita.. Pidgeotto can actually get pretty annoying if you don't kill it quickly

Current Progress: 4th Gym Leader
In this poll in the GS discussion, I said Whitney, and indeed usually she is the toughest for me, but in my most recent SS playthrough I had a female steelix that saved me and actually made whitney quite easy for me. (immunity to attract and NVE attacks) So I'll have to say Clair this time.
Claire, by far.
Even with a Typhlosion and a Feralagatr that knew Ice Beam, she still took a while to beat.
Bugsy was really hard since I started with chikorita.
and others, just ask me...
Make your offers!
Whitney for sure! Such a pain in the Bidoof.
whitney is hard to beat.
I had a problem with Bugsy.
I didn't have a rock or fire type.
And the stupid Scyther destroyed my Pidgeotto as well.
My friend safari: Noibat, Gabite, Druddigon
Mine were Bugsy and Whitney!
Bugsy because I chose chikorita as my partner and her Scyther was a massive pain.
Whitney because Stomp, Milk Drink and it's high Def.
I manged to beat Bugsy with Unknown while spamming potions and Whitney because of Elekid I go of the Pokewalker.
Long Live the Ring of Fire
For me it must have been Pryce.
When i came to his gym i realized i didn´t have a single super effective move against ice. Ended up in starting to level a larvitar who later became part of my main team.
Blue, the only guy who really use some tactics not just brute force.
Clair is tough but that is only because her pokemons are powerful.

If it's not Whitney, then it was Blue. Trick Room really threw me off, I had to level-grind for a bit before facing him again.
Definitely Whitney! Her Miltank's attract got me angry and when I couldn't attack, and she used stomp. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

Whitney was the toughest Gym Leader for me. Her Miltank always gives me trouble in these ganes. During my Cyndaquil runthrough however, Clair really gave me problems.
A lovely tie between Clair and Whitney
Spoiler:- My latest challenge:
If Red doesn't count then Claire. Piplup vs .... Hard battle. Difficult battle.
