Pokemon Scarlet And Violet Gym Leaders: What We Know So Far

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Gym Leaders are set to be a feature of these games, much as they were in previous entries. Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are changing much about the Pokemon formula, but Gyms and Gym Leaders will still play an important part. The cast of Gym Leaders usually makes up a significant portion of the interesting characters found in most Pokemon games. Here is everything we know so far about the Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Gym Leaders.

Pokemon Scarlet And Violet Gym Leaders: How Gyms Work

Before we chat about the Gym Leaders, let's talk about how Gyms work in these new games. In all previous Pokemon games, Gyms, or the equivalent thereof, have always been in a set order. This is set to change with Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, as these games are bringing a more open-world design to the series. As such, players will be able to choose the order in which they approach the Gyms.

How this will work is unclear so far, perhaps the game will scale the levels of each Gym Leader's Pokemon relative to your own. Regardless, you will be able to meet these new Gym Leaders at your own pace, in whichever order you choose.

 

Pokemon Scarlet And Violet Gym Leaders: Grusha

Grusha, the Ice-type Gym Leader of these new games

So far, Grusha is the only Gym Leader we have seen. He is a former professional snowboarder turned Ice-type Gym Leader. Apparently, this extreme sports aficionado likes to keep cool in more ways than one, but gets pretty fired up in the heat of a Pokemon battle.

As an Ice-type Gym Leader, Grusha employs mainly Ice-type Pokemon. His partner Pokemon is Cetitan, a brand new Pokemon in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. Be sure to bring some Fire-type Pokemon when going up against Grusha.

That is everything we know so far about Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Gym Leaders. We will be back when there is more information available, but for now check out our Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Region guide to learn more about Paldea.
