Least Favorite Gen 2 gym leader?

    My least favorite was Falkner. He was quite easy to beat and he hasn't had any johto flying types like Natu/Xatu or Hoothoot/Noctowl. Even if you did have a Chikorita, you could have just gotten a Geodude.

    I like all of the Gym leaders now but as a kid she was the one who I used to find annoying because of her sassy nature lol.

    I guess I'll have to go with Falkner as well for this one. I don't really dislike him, to be honest, but for some reason he's always been the least memorable of Johto's Gym Leaders for me. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Bugsy! He's a gym leader with a Kakuna AND a Metapod!!! Bugs were already underpowered in gen 1 and he made no difference in gen 2 (he should have had Pinser and/or Heracross to complement his Scyther or at least their evolved forms).

    Actually, most Johto Gym Leaders had lame teams (Morty, Falkner, Bugsy and Chuck don't even have any Generation II Pokemon). I say Falkner is the worst, because not only does he use only Kanto critters, but they are also members of the same family.

    The gym leaders for the most part have always been the lamest part of gen 2.

    With the exception of Whitney and (my personal favorite) Jasmine.

    Claire kind of bugs me the most because she gives you a task she believes you can't pass on purpose because she didn't want to accept defeat.

    I'm not fond of Faulkner and Chuck. Chuck's gym is cool, but his personality is typical. Faulkner just didn't feel like anything important, but most of the first Gym Leaders don't, in my opinion.

    From first playthrough (from some years back): Whitney (That dang Miltank!)

    Second: Morty (His Gengar is a pain!)

    I don't really have a least favourite Gen 2 Gym Leader but I do have one that's my least favourite to battle and it's an obvious choice. Of course it's Whitney because of her Miltank. The last time I battled her I used a good number of X Defenses on my female Geodude to even deal with its Rollout.

    Akane (Whitney) was dreadful, not just due to her Miltank, but also because she was immature as seen by the way she whined when she lost the match in the games.

    Morty was awful to me because his Ghosts always gave me trouble since back in the Gold and Silver days it was tough finding good Psychic and Dark types.

    Word. Psyduck and Growlithe were a big help there with him. Scyther was ok and so was Butterfree. But other than that, it takes luck and chance when facing off against him.

    Matsuba (Morty) was pretty diffcult in the sense that he used Pokemon with only two weaknesses, although there were a few Psychic-types available near Kogane (Goldenrod) City which helped.

    Whitney was annoying as heck because not only did she wreck teams, but Whitney herself was a crybaby. Clair was a mess too since she had massive attitude issues.

    Word. Thank Arceus for the Machop you can trade for in game. It came in handy against that Miltank.

    Funny how both Akane and Ibuki threw some kind of tantrum when they lost, yet Mikan accepted her loss with shy dignity.

    Seriously, I used a female Machop before and she didn’t do too well. She would quite often get beaten by Miltank for some reason.
