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?

Only 2 Kalos types left now and so we move onto another type that is somewhat popular: Psychic. A trainer specializes in this type in every Gen, much like Fighting. I always find these trainers to be good: Sabrina has those teleporters that send you everywhere your first time through along with some development in her character. Will is the Psychic version of Wallace, which is cool. Liza & Tate are unique in that they're the only Gym Leader(s) you fight in a Double Battle for their badge. Lucian might just be the only Psychic specialist without any psychic abilities. Caitlin has a lot of backstory with regards to her powers and the Battle Castle. Finally, Olympia seems to be this Gen's most popular Gym Leader with her design and her gym's layout. Like Electric, I'm struggling to choose!

As usual, you're voting for the one you personally think was the best. This could be because of their design, personality, difficulty or gym/room layout or whatever else you see fit.

NOTE: Liza and Tate are not separated because they are fought together in their gym and are, for all intents and purposes, a single unit in regards to number of Gym Leaders in Hoenn. PWT is not their gym battle.

Sabrina ... because she'll always be in my mind as the gym leader who kicked Ashs butt so hard, that he had that he had to resort to cheating to win the badge ... exposing him as the mind boggingly stupid cheat he really is. (in the Anime of course)

... thx Sabrina!

... and also thx to mini Sabrina too

I like how in the anime they say use ghost to beat psychic, but there were only 3 ghost pokemon in gen 1, and all three were weak to psychic. And psychic wasn't weak to ghost

Hello Aki :)

I gotta go oldschool with Sabrina on this one.

Emerald Liza & Tate put up the best fight. I'm measuring Sabrina on FRLG standards because Gen I Psychic was completely broken and not a fair assessment of her actual team.

Yeah, I had to vote Sabrina. Probably the gym leader (and by extension, trainer and in game fight XD) I've ever had the most trouble with XD Although Lance in yellow when I was 8 comes very close.

Because not all Champions can be identified as type specialists...


Just wanted to say, ok. Never got around to responding in the other topic cuz I'm dumb, so just wanted to acknowledge that you bothered to reply :D that makes a lot of sense, actually.
