A Gym (Japanese: ジム Gym) is a place where Pokémon Trainers go to train their Pokémon. Just like real life gymnasiums, where one can go to work out and build physical strength, Pokémon Gyms are places where Trainers can go to sharpen their battling skills and where their Pokémon can go to gain experience.

Often specializing in a particular type, Gyms create an environment which allows Trainers to test both their skills and Pokémon against those of others. The most powerful Trainer in a given Gym is called the Gym Leader, who is revered by both the lower-ranking members of the Gym and local fans. In the games, there is a character that stands near the door giving tips on how to beat the Gym's challenges.

Official GymsEdit

Gyms that are certified by the Pokémon League are vital to a Trainer's Pokémon journey. Leagues are designed so that conventional Trainers must travel far and wide before entering a League Competition, as the only way to enter one is by gaining at least eight official Gym Badges, and there can only be one official Gym per city.

In the gamesEdit

In the games, most Gyms feature a number of Trainers the player may face before battling the Gym Leader. Their teams typically consisting of the same type of Pokémon that the Gym Leader has. These Trainers cannot be battled after the Gym Leader has been defeated.

There are eight known official Gyms in each region.

While the Golune Gym is an official Gym, its official Gym Leader, Luna, doesn't reside in it until after the Dune Badge is obtained. Despite this, it can still be visited and challenged beforehand, but will be run by the unofficial Leader, Jasper. The player can challenge and defeat him, but will not receive a badge for their efforts. However, if this is done, the player can return to the Gym after obtaining the Dune Badge and instantly receive the badge from Luna without having to battle her.
