So, since we've had some time to get used to the Kalos leaders and E4, I felt we should start seeing where they stand in regards to other region's Gym Leaders and Elite 4. Are they more popular? Are they more challenging? (Hahaha...)

So we start with the first of the traditional starter types: Grass. I personally have never particularly bothered with Grass types that much, but they are handy. Since I always pick the Water starter though, I find Grass tough to deal with (I rarely use the early bird Pokemon). I personally always struggle against Erika though I like Gardenia the most since she has just enough challenge to make it difficult, but winnable and her gym layout in Platinum is more interesting than the others (Ramos', in particular, was just annoying).

But still, which of the Grass-type Gym Leaders do you guys like best?

NOTE: Some people take issue with Cilan being a Grass-type "Gym Leader". Yes, he isn't in the strictest sense since in BW since he has Lillipup too. But, in my personal opinion, his decision in BW2 to be solely Grass-based inflects a retrospective light on him as a Gym Leader. The Trio Badge itself has red, blue and green gems in the badge which alludes to the triplets' signature Pokemon's types. Finally, Lenora is already a Normal-type leader in BW and no 2 Gym Leaders have had the same typing in the same game and there are no other "diversity" based Gym Leaders, and they can't be in a poll on their own. Those reasons make me compelled enough to feel that he does belong here (as will his brothers later in their respective polls) moreso than anywhere else. You can feel free to disagree of course.

The latter two lack presence, and Erika is one of the most goonish Gym leaders ever. I, also, happen to really like one of Gardenia's episodes in the anime. Very touching.

Gardenia. She has enthusiasm in her character, whereas Erika spends all day asleep in her Gym and has to be pestered for a fight. Cilan is okay, but he's kind of stuck sharing the spotlight with the other two. Can't say anything about Ramos yet.

Erika was great
Gardenia was alright
Cilan I hated, even more so based on his anime counterpart
Ramos seemed a little flat (which is kind of ironic seeing how the games are about dimensions), but I loved his design

Gardenia. She had actual character, not to mention a unique look with that crazy hair and belly shirt/poncho thing combo.
