Every Gym (And Their Pokemon) in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet


Pokemon Scarlet & Violet were released amidst several critiques due to the reported issues with performance & graphics, as well as some technical problems that are causing visual bugs or even shiny-duplication glitches. Still, while the dust has yet to settle, many players are happy with the game’s incredible open world, which provides a lot of content in & of itself due to how exploration works & how frequently Tera Raid battles or solitary Tera Pokemon can be found in Paldea. Pokemon Scarlet & Violet‘s Terastallization is also a Huge aspect of the game, as notable trainers & the main character alike can use this phenomenon to change their Pokemon’s type or make them stronger with a same-type Terastallization.


Great examples of how notable characters use Terastallization Approach from Academy teachers &, more importantly, from the various Gym Leaders in Paldea. In fact, every Gym Leader in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet has access to Terastallization, which they all take advantage of in order to make their non-type-specific Pokemon share the same type of their Gym, instead. Because there is no level scaling in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet, players can expect all Paldean Gym Leaders to always use the same team of critters regardless of levels, possible evolutions, & types.

Cortondo is one of the main cities in Paldea, & it’s found west of Mesagoza. The Gym Leader is called Katy, & her secondary job is that of managing a pastry shop.

  • Tarountula, level 14
  • Teddiursa, level 15, which becomes Bug-type when Katy uses her Tera Orb

Medali Gym – Larry, Normal-type Gym Leader


Pokemon Scarlet & Violet is an atypical set of games in the sense that they don’t feature four completely different members of the Elite Four, & Medali Gym’s Larry eventually joins the iconic group as a Flying-type trainer.
