Favorite Gen 1 Gym Leader?

Discussion in 'Pokémon Generation I & II Discussion' started by Wednesdayz, Dec 28, 2016.

    I would say Misty, but I’m probably biased because her ace Pokémon happens to be my favorite. Blaine’s probably the second because I love quizzes and him being a scientist that worked on Mewtwo was cool.

    I would have to say a tie between Brock and Sabrina. I liked them both in the cartoon so maybe my impression of them in the games is impacted by that. Sabrina has a cool design in the Kanto remake games and Brock's always been a pretty chill kind of guy.

    Erika mainly for the set up of her Gym and her appearance. I’ve always liked kimonos and seeing Erika dressed in a traditional one was very interesting to see and really set her apart from all the other Gym Leaders except Giovanni.

    I think my opinion of Natsume (Sabrina) is influenced by the anime as well. She wasn't spectacular in the games as far as I can remember, although I do remember that her team in Red and Blue had a random Morphon (Venomoth) for whatever reason. That always irked me.

    I will say Misty as of right now because I like her design in the Gen 1 series, but I also think that Erika and Sabrina look cool. Out of the male gym leaders, Blaine is my favourite because of his bald look.

    I like Giovanni and how he uses being a gym leader as a cover for being the boss of Team Rocket.I also usually really like the final gym leader of a region.The only problem is that you can easily beat his team by using practicaly any water type.

    Speaking of him, I've always preferred his completely bald with sunglasses design from the late Gen I era as seen in Ken Sugimori's artwork from the Gym Leader TCG sets as opposed to his first design that had some hair, which was rather boring to look at.

    I liked Blaine but he is terribly eat and his gym puzzle has nothing to do with fire types really.

    I don't remember what Blaine's first design looked like. I only remember how he looked like in the cartoon when he took off his wig and then what he looked like in the trading card game.

    Katsura's (Blaine's) design from the anime is basically what his first Ken Sugimori design looked like. I don't have an image, but I remember seeing his old design in one of the R/G/B/Y era guidebooks.

    definitely Erika these days

    Koga has the coolest aesthetic though, i love the backstory of his hundred-years old ninja line

    Liked Koga, Blaine and Giovanni

    1. Koga because he's a ninja and those are awesome. Also his poison strategy was smart and effective.
    2. Blaine because he had the funnest gym puzzle with those quiz machines and really cool sunglasses.
    3. Giovanni because he was foreshadowed early in the game and he was the boss of Team Rocket.

    Katsura's (Blaine's) Gym puzzle was rather entertaining, although I purposely got the answers wrong sometimes so that I could defeat the Gym trainers inside the Gym for some extra experience. I also really liked how Sakaki (Giovanni) was technically the first Gym Leader that we heard about in R/G/B/Y, although not the first one we battled.

    Sabrina was the best one although I remember getting all confused because I didn't understand the right order of the Kanto gym leaders when I played Blue lol. Also her gym badge name is stupid.

    The order of the Gym Leaders in Gen I was a bit confusing to me as well, and as for her Gym badge, I always assumed that Nintendo got her badge mixed up with Kyou's (Koga's).

    Sabrina is a stark contrast from her anime counterpart so I'd have to go with her.

    Noa Pokemon Crystal is my happy place

    Erika, she is a perfect mix of pretty girl and strong leader. I also like how her gym is full of cute girls and nice smelling flowers. She's really living her best life.

    Brock because I've seen him so much in the anime that I'm so used to him. Sabrina and Giovanni are also some of my favorites behind Brock.
