This poll is now closed.
To pass the time until Pokemon X/Y much anticipated arrival, I want to hold a series of polls that rates every single gym leader that appears in the main series game. Everyday I will hold a poll dedicated to one of the main series gym leaders, and you have a chance to rate them on a scale of 1-10. The poll will be open for 24 hours and the gym leader will be chosen at random. You can rate the gym leaders on whatever you like: gym puzzles, gym battle, appearance, line-up, difficulty, etc.

Previous Results:

Day One - Pryce: 4.84
Day Two - Blaine: 8.15
Day Three - Gardenia: 7.09
Day Four - Tate & Liza: 6.90
Day Five - Burgh: 4.47
Day Six - Morty - 6.58
Day Seven - Winona: 7.94
Day Eight - Misty: 7.74
Day Nine - Byron: 6.00
Day Ten - Clay: 6.83

Day Eleven: Claire
Region: Johto
Town: Blackthorn City
Type Specialty: Dragon

Gold and Silver Line-up:
Dragonair lvl 37, Dragonair lvl 37, Dragonair lvl 37, Kingdra lvl 40

HeartGold and SoulSilver Line-up:
Gyarados lvl 38, Dragonair lvl 38, Dragonair lvl 38, Kingdra lvl 41

She is going to get an 8 from me. Clair is pretty much the only gym leader I like from Johto. Her gym battle has always been fun and memorable IMO. I remember back during the G/S/C days where Kingdra always kicked my ass. Having three Dragonairs on her team was pretty lame, but at least they replaced one with Gyarados in HG/SS. Her design is also pretty neat too. On the the downside, I am not too crazy about her gym puzzle. Also, the little Dragon's Den sidequest was a pain in the ass too. Luckily, no other gym leader did something like that. So I am not going to slam her too much for that since its only unique to her.

Cool team, but her ingame attitude is terrible! She's such a snob.

6/10, her attitude kills her awesomeness.

7. She's good looking and fun to fight, but her attitude is annoying.

^ Pretty much this, except replace "awesomeness" with "adequacy". The gym is crappy (Strength rock puzzles are slow and boring with a high potential for frustration/time wasting), her team is stupid and predictable (although fair play, gen 2 only had like, what, 4 dragons?), and she's such an unpleasant, raging [c-bomb].

I almost wouldn't have minded if the obviously obvious filler dungeon afterwards was either free of encounters or a lot shorter/didn't require 2 different (but similar, I guess) HMs to navigate. Lastly, while it's bad enough that most of the gym trainers are mandatory (IIRC), these jerks are mostly positioned at obvious choke-points where you can see them just waiting for you, probably grinning all stupidly and thinking how clever they are for standing right there are forcing you to fight them.

That whole city is full of [more c words, yo].

7/10

Her attitude is her only flaw.

Sadly, that's a glaring flaw.
