        All good OP, Johto is part of Kanto since they need to use Kanto's Elite Four. Might as well say Johto badges are Kanto badges since both are part of the same league.

      How haven't league officials fired Sabrina or had her arrested?

      Giovanni could be defeated if he didn't have Mewtwo that day. Sabrina looked too skilled, though Ash was a rookie at the time.

      What about Misty? Erika? Brock (sorta)? None of these were earned and Ash was kinda getting clapped in those gym battles until the activation of plot convenience (although Ash did surprisingly well against Giovanni's regular team).
      Overall, Ash only earned like 4 gym badges in total. It's no wonder that Charizard didn't respect him.

        Sounds too complicated for a 10 year old, but maybe Brock did it?

        Maybe theres a layer of nothing between the inside and outside.

    >Pewter
    Yes. Sprinkler system is Brock's responsibility and Brock's siblings interference should have been a DQ in Ash's favor anyway.
    >Cerulean
    Yes.
    Was winning despite a handicap when the match was interrupted.
    >Saffron
    No. Should have been disqualified for outside interference, Haunter "beat" Sabrina while explicitly not being on Ash's team.
    >Celadon
    Probably not.
    Earning the badge through heroics is fine, but very sketchy considering how he helped cause the problem in the first place by helping criminals enter the gym.
    >Viridian
    Yes.
    Was actively cheated against yet managed to turn it around and win.
    >Vermillion, Fuchsia, Cinnabar
    Yes.
    No question

      He would win Celadon without the interference too, it's the same situation as Misty's.

        >He would win Celadon without the interference too,

        >Brock
        The fight was stupid but he was winning but due to Brock’s siblings interference yeah it was deserved. Still dumb that he only used Pikachu tho
        >Misty
        He was winning till TRio interfered
        >LT. Surge
        It was deserved
        >Erika
        He was winning. Weird that this is the second fight with TRio interference
        >Sabrina
        This was stupid so no
        >Koga
        Yeah as anti climatic as that fight was
        >Blaine
        Yes
        >Giovanni/TRio
        Given that they were constantly cheating yes.

        >He was winning.
        He wasn't, at all. He was actually losing quite bad.
        Tangela beat Bulbasaur(paralysis was basically a KO in the anime back then), and was then recalled for Weepinbell, which Charmander beat. Charmander then lost to Gloom.
        It was 2-1 Erika, with Ash already sure he'd lose.
        >If Gloom beats Charmander, what Pokémon can I use next?
        >Squirtle, Pidgeotto and Pikachu couldn't take that terrible smell.
        >Chu!
        >Pikachu?
        >Pika.
        >You're saying you want to battle?
        >Pikachu.
        >You know you're probably going to lose, but you're still willing to battle Gloom to help me out?
        >Pika, pika!
        >What? You say you're sure you'll win?
        And then the battle gets interrupted.

      Checking those badges, Gary defeated Brock (or one of his brothers pretending to be him), Misty (or one of her sisters, Sabrina, and even Dr Blaine. But who are the other 6 leaders? I imagine the one loking like a piramid must be Ground, and the little yellow blob must be Ghost. What about the other 4?

        He beat Erika, not Sabrina. Sabrina was never beaten by anybody in the anime fairly iirc. Even that Marowak guy who had the badge was shown fighting a Hitmonlee meaning he beat the dojo.

          So, Gary fought the dojo before Sabrina took over.
          Wow, I though Sabrina had a long time being a Gym Leader, but I think she had the gym for, like, 2-3 months? Time is hard to measure on cartoons.

    Adventures Red won them in almost the same stupid way and nobody complaints, so yes since if that's fair this is too.

      Actually, I don't think Spe Red got any Badges other than Boulder, Cascade and Rainbow
      Most of his fights against Gym Leaders were unofficial

      Fun fact: Adventures Red never got all 8 gym badges.
      >Brock
      He won the same stupid way Ash did arguably worse since Pikachu blew up Onix with his electricity
      >Misty
      She was beating his ass and Red realized he was outmatched. So the 2 of them trained for a while he gave him the badge out of respect
      >LT Surge
      Never was a gym battle. He was fighting for his life and Surge dropped it when he was defeated
      >Erika
      She was beating his ass. But it was a test to see if he’d give up or not so she gave it to him
      >Koga
      He didn’t fight him in a gym battle. He and Blue teamed up to fight him. Red took the badge after the battle was done
      >Sabrina
      He never fought her. Green did and defeated her to steal the badge. Then she decided to trade it to Red for a moon stone.
      >Blaine
      Never fought. They worked together to stop Mewtwo. Not sure if he got the Badge as a result or not
      >Giovanni
      The battle was for his freedom. Even after defeating him he never took the badge
      Turns out that you don’t need 8 gym badges to enter the Pokémon league.

        Red got the badge before that, when he tried to protect Moltres from Team Rocket. He failed, but Blaine gave him the badge anyway

      Nah, he did beat Koga and beat Surge and Blaine both on the rematch. He also genuinely beat Jesse & James for the 8th (although if Giovanni was there to fight that out, he probably wouldn't have done so well).

    Speaking of things both the anime and PokeSpe did
    It's funny that they both chose two of the same Gym Leaders to make more antagonistic
