Re: Official Pokemon Discussion Thread!
Whitney, Lucien (Diamond/Pearl), Blue (Red/Blue/Yellow) and Cynthia (D/P/B/W/B2/W2) are the only trainers who actually provide a serious challenge in these games..
Each one has that one Pokemon who just takes things to a whole 'nother level..
Whitney - Miltank
Lucien - Bronzong
Blue/Gary/1st Gen Rival.. - Alakazam
Cynthia - Garchomp
1 Gym Leader, 1 Elite 4 Member & 2 Champions.. Out of around about 60 or so Gym Leaders, Elite 4 Members and Champions, only 4 pose a real challenge.. After your first playthrough all that challenge has gone as you are now a lot more prepared which just makes the game too easy which is when all the 'Gimmick' playthroughs start. (Solo, Nuzlocke, Mono-Colour, Mono-Type etc.)
