>>24618376 Depends on what you start with and catch really. Some can be hard or easy. Whitney for example, if you have nothing but female pokemon she's a pushover, but she's a huge annoyance with male pokemon.
Or say, Clair if you don't have an ice/dragon Pokemon, she can be a bit of a bitch at times. Blue/Green is probably the hardest though just considering his team comp. isn't one type.
>>24618376 >gen 1 none >gen 2 Whitney and Claire >Gen 3 Juan broly and Winona if you let them set up >gen 4 none >gen 5 cheren if he sets up, Burgh if you have nothing for leavany ,Elesa if your not prepared for acrobatics >gen 6 Grant both his pokemon hit hard
>>24618376 Whitney's a piece of shit, but I actually think Clair is worse, just because there's an enormous level trough right in front of her. Unless you want to grind against level 25 Graveler for six years you'll go in against most of her team at least 5 levels below her.
Lenora's murderdog and Elesa's Amazing Cunt Squirrel Sisters get an honorable mention. Sabrina if you count her Gen 1 version I guess.
For some reason never had problems outside with gym leaders except for some RNG bullshit and evasive/para tactics Clair can pull sometimes and outstalling Winona's set ups whenever I do shitmon runs.
I think I have lost like 3 times to the Striaton trio as soon as the first ROMs of BW were shared, I have played in Japanese and finished it easily but damn, fuck Lillipup's Work Up. When you sum up relatively good strats on gym side and an overall shitty regional dex and shitty starters you realize you'll find some problems. Also Lenora's Retaliate still against shitmons often got easy kills but Striaton kept stomping on me in Japanese BW.
Also Roxanne's immortal Nosepass is always a pain because I hate 2/3 Hoenn staters and don't feel to using Mudkip in every run, Hoenn didn't really have that good mon selection in Gen 3, just like Unova BW.
depends on teams whitney is a stereotype but true, gen 1 there was nothing really but level gap between erika and sabrina/koga can be a problem, gen 3 didn't give me any problems, gen 4 volkner can be a pain with ice punch electivire, gen 5 drayden with all those dragon dances, gen 6 nothing
>>24618376 Most of them are pussies, but here's a short list of the ones that gave me trouble.
>Misty >Sabrina >Whitney >Winoa, Tat/Liza was difficult first time when I was a kid because I Earthquaked myself and her rocks floated above it because I didn't know how doubles battles worked. >Maylene >Gen 5 and 6 had no tough gym leaders, all of them were jokes.
>>24619578 Psychic-types tend to have high special defense, and when you combine that with Surf's reduced spread damage and the fact that Tate&Liza have multiple pokemon with Sunny Day and Light Screen, Surf isn't doing much at all.
>>24619578 It hits your own Pokemon as well though, asshole. Back in the RSE days when there was no Exp Share, chances are your Swampert would've fucked its partner up, or your other surfer wasn't high level enough.
All these Tate and Liz replies, go you guys even Surf?
Gen 1 had decent consistent difficulty but no one leader stands out Gen 2 Whitney, Jasmine and Clair could all be troublesome, particularly Clair cause Kingdra is annoying Gen 3 is incredibly easy Gen 4 is tedious but not hard Gen 5 has a couple potential challenges; even Clay's Excadrill can be annoying Gen 6 was very easy; Grant was the only slighty hard gym leader
>>24620054 I a normal type move, and not a very good one. If you mean the one that keeps you from attacking for 5 turns, you get a free attack on the 5th turn since you are faster than Onix. Also, you can use Potions and shit while you're being binded. Does no one else use Potions?
If you mean "Bide", Brock's TM Move, just use Growl or Leer or whatever while he stands there and don't hit him until it's over. It's not like he'll outspeed you and use Bide before you attack. If Onix is outspeeding your pokemon you are full of fail.
>>24618376 >Gen 1 Sabrina because Alakazam can rape your team and has basicaly no counter in RBY >Gen 2 Morty with Hypnosis Dream Eater Gengar Claire with that fucking Kingdra with basically no counter >Gen 3 Brawly's team hits hard and has barely any early counters Wattson's Manetric in Emerald, unless you started with Mudkip Norman if you don't have Protect Winona if you let Altaria setup Juan and that fucking Kingdra again >Gen 4 I don't remember anything, haven't played in a few years. >Gen 5 Triplets with Work Up Lillipup Lenora with Retaliate and Hypnosis, a fighting type makes this easier tho Elesa with Double Team Emolgas - FUCK THIS GYM Clay with that OP Excadrill >gen 6 Korrina with Hone Claws Hawlucha, good luck if you don't have resists/immunities
1: none? koga? 2: xXx_GENGAR_EATS_YOUR_DREAMS_xXx 3: Liza and Tate. That is all. 4: Byron??? 5: Brycen, fo sho. Dual types work wonders. 6: Its hard rep should be enough to convince y'all that it's hard. Olympia. Nobody loves her.
>>24619578 >one uses sunny day >the other uses calm mind >both heal pokemon and van double target the water type >sharpedo has barely no bulk at all See the problem? Even if you use Swampert in depends on the RNG wih the moves they are going to use.
Unless you are tryhard and clean all the water routes before their gym, included the current streams and pre-Pacific Log ones.
Those two twins have an actual strategy programmed and planned in.
>>24620194 >Byron That's the wrong Bronzong anon, Lucian's one was the immortal mon. >Brycen >any Unova leader past Lenora being a challenge ever yet alone an Ice type specialist that doesn't abuse RNG like Glacia and Candice
