He's a cool Gym Leader. Everyone always mention how cool and awesome Surge, Volkner and Elesa are. Why is Wattson overlooked?
Damn, I'm good!

Wattson is the cheerful old man in that one town near Route 18 or something and the Day Care and that Desert in Gen III?
If so I thought he was okay. I didn't think he was great or worthwhile to truly remember other than that huge smile on his face.... and his hairdo.

Aesthetics, really. For most people, an army's lieutenant, a blonde guy with cool clothes and a hot girl are better than an old, chubby dude.

Also, I think Wattson kinda fails to stand out as a Gym Leader; in Ruby & Sapphire, he doesn't even use a 3rd Gen Pokémon (that's fixed in Emerald), and his strategy is almost a rip-off of Surge's: just paralyze the opposition, try a Supersonic here and there, then attack.

Didn't think anyone would say that about the guy.

He still deserves to be talked about every once in a while. People remember Youngster Joey but not Wattson? What is wrong with the fanbase?

Because Hoenn had some of the most forgettable Leaders and Elites in the series. I think the only ones that people seem to recognize are Flannery (hot chick), Norman (an actual father for the MC), and Wallace (since he became Champion in Emerald)

People don't talk about him because A he's not a young Pokegirl and B because there really isn't anything horribly wrong with his personality. He's perfectly fine as a Gym Leader so he's accepted and pretty much left to tinker away as he pleases.
