I tried improving the Johto gym leaders as best as I could, but I ran into a few problems.

First, there were 2 Ghost-type Pokemon families to choose from for Morty, which is why I only gave him two Pokemon. I could've given him a Gengar, but it seemed like too much.

Second, I wasn't sure if I should've given Chuck a Poliwrath or not, to I kept up the Generation II scheme and all, so I decided against it.

Third, Jasmine only has two Pokemon. I feel if I gave her a Scizor, it would make Bugsy look COMPLETELY inferior in rematches, and the chances of someone actually having a Fire-type besides Typhlosion seemed slim.

And lastly, the Gen I - Gen II Dragon-type Pokemon are extremely scarce. I gave Clair only three Pokemon, because I feel I would be copying Lance if I gave her a Charizard or an Aerodactyl (inb4 Lance has a Gyarados, she had one in HGSS, so blame Gamefreak, not me.) Also, I'm at a loss for giving Gyarados a 4th move, so if you have any ideas, don't hesitate to say anything.

This is not for a romhack or anything, it's just GSC/HGSS had horrid Gym Leaders, and I wanted to improve them. Tell me what you guys think.

Yes, I kept Whitney's Miltank exactly the same, so don't bitch about it.

Can Gyrados learn Dragonbreath? I know DragonPulse makes it uneccesary but if you need a 4th move it could be possible.
Also I think its a bit odd you go from 3 Pokemon in Gyms 2+3 to 2 for 4, 5 and 6. So I'd suggest possibly doing the following:
Morty - Add a Ghastly at level 20 to his roster.
Chuck - Give him a Tyrogue at level 25, I know it isn't very strong but its a Gen2 at least, plus you could give it some decent moves that could be acquired through breeding.
Janine - A level 28-30 Magnemite might be good here, again not so tough compared to Magneton and Steelix, but just two Pokemon may be a bit easy. I'd say either this or possibly level Magneton and Steelix up by 2 levels.

Otherwise I think it looks pretty good.
You gonna be using this for anything? Like actually editing a HG/SS Rom with those changes?

I wish I could make a ROM for this. And thank you for your insight. The reason I made this was because I just really didn't like how the Gym Leaders were set up in HG/SS.

No problem, and fair enough :P
I know there are programs that let you do it easily enough, might take a look at it myself soon.

Remove the Machop you can trade to get in Goldenrod City and Whitney is fine.
