I'm with you 100% on that. Everyone seems to pack extra hate for Gen III. It may be because we haven't had any recent Hoenn games, because there was no backward compatibility with other Generations, or because it was the first game to look different in terms of graphics. But Hoenn was one of my favorite regions, and I still play my Ruby when I get the chance. =)I think the only reason the Hoenn Gym leader's are being forgotten is:
- R/S are very old games that haven't been remade
- HGSS reminded everyone of the Johto Gym leaders
- The Kanto Gym leaders have been in every gen and everyone will always remember them
- DP Gym leaders was just last gen.
That being said some of the Hoenn Gym leaders like Flannery, Wallace, Tate/Liza etc. are very memorable.
I pretty much remember her from the anime. I think the actual gym battle with her and Ash took just 1 episode, but she was introduced some episodes back. Plus she has a "crazy girl" personality.I doubt too many people remember who Candice is.
That's why I like the Unova gym leaders. They actually do things outside of battling you.
Lols, I see what you mean with Roark. The only time I remember seeing him out of a gym was in the mine right before I challenged him.I always forget about Roark. All the other Sinnoh gym leaders are pretty 'out-there' or have some interesting quirk, including the likes of luchadore or extravagant foreign diva.
Then you've got Roark, who's just...a guy wearing a hard hat, I guess. It doesn't help that most of his team is playing copycat to Brock, either.
I used to foget Chuck a lot, but then he got that badass Sugimori art for the remakes.
Yeah, Jasmine was always bland to me. But I don't think "boring" is the best word to me. I just thought she was really quiet and shy. Maybe even cold and emotionless like steel. (which happens to be her type...)All the ones I've forgot, I suppose. There are a few who I recall as being so bland it hurts though. Like Bugsy or Jasmine.
I think you mean Drake. His team was so beatable, it wasn't even funny. Well, the whole Hoenn E4 was easy when I think about it..I remember all of the gym leaders except for the Hoeen Elite Four. Their probably the most forgetful for me because I have never seen them anywhere except for the Dragon Guy (Still dunno his name) who appeared in the anime.
I'm with you there! The first time I beat my Platinum, I got lost in Mt. Coronet for a while.Wow. Volkner. VOLK-NER. I remember him because it took me forever to get to Sunyshore on account of the fact that I got lose on Mt. Coronet, and a friend had to show me how to get to Palkia. :/
What?? Not Misty? Well, I admit she's stuck in my mind because of the anime, but I also remember her for not being at the Cerulean City gym in my Crystal Version (and my Heartgold).None of them. But ones with significance are more memorable. That said, none of the ones from Kanto are memorable, not even Misty. Giovanni's the only exception one because he's the only one with any part in the story outside the badge-collecting sections.
Lols, I actually forgot that Brock was a gymleader too until I played my Heartgold. Right after I got it, I remembered that I can get the 8 badges in Kanto after I beat the Elite 4.Chuck, Brock, Erika, Cissy, and Juan.
Why Brock you say? Because he's been on the show so long, that I forgot he was even a gymleader.
Why Chuck? Because I just forgot.
Why Erika? Because she and her girl slaves made it seem like Ash was challenging Erika for a Perfume badge instead of a Rainbow one.
Why Cissy? Pokemon surfing? Is that even a real battle?
Why Juan? Becuase I was still dreaming of Wallace instead.
xDDDD That would be funny lolsI have a feeling by the end of this thread most people will remember Chuck for being the most forgettable Gym Leader. XD I see how this works...
Really? I remember her for giving me the most trouble so far...I don't remember any of the Hoenn ones (probably because last time i played Emerald Version was when i was like 8.)
Strength-wise? Lenora was just too easy. I killed both her pokemon in 1 hit each.
