In Closing

The Johto Gym Leaders picked up the pace after the first games. They did have some changes when it comes to the remakes but that’s just normal. The Gen 2 games didn’t have the concept of abilities yet but that’s where the addition of new types and updated stats are very important.

Their lineup may have been the same but the updates are something that you have to watch out for. The other thing is that updated Physical and Special split present in Gen 4 so it gives you an idea what to expect from these Leaders when you finally encounter them in the game.
