Actually Falkner was anything but a disappointment. If anything, he was one of the most disappointingly strong NPC's. Mud Slap is the reason he is so annoying in GSC. In HGSS, Roost Pidgeotto is really really realllllly annoying to take down even with Geodude. I also do not know why you have great expectations for the first gym leader in a region.....
