In the anime

The Aspertia Gym made an appearance in There's a New Gym Leader in Town!. Ash battled Cheren's Herdier with his Oshawott, but eventually lost.

The Gym also operates as a school dedicated exclusively to the education of aspiring Pokémon Trainers. The Gym is a tall building with a central tower, and the outside includes a place for the students to play. Inside, there are many classrooms and corridors in between. The school consists of a library, where students can learn about Pokémon from regions outside of Unova using the numerous books and computers, a swimming pool, a kitchen with dining tables and a room where announcements can be broadcast all around the grounds. Outdoor field projects are held to study wild Pokémon so that students can become familiar with and eventually catch their own Pokémon.

The school also raises and keeps Pokémon in a Pokémon House, which allow students to interact with various Pokémon. The Pokémon House is a large glass-caged structure with a forest-like environment inside. Behind the Pokémon House includes a large area with trees, flowers and a fountain.

The Gym's battlefield looks like an ordinary schoolyard but is yet to be completed. However, it is finished enough for Ash and Cheren to conduct an exhibition match.

Aspertia Gym in Pokémon Adventures

The Aspertia Gym first made its appearance in the Black 2 & White 2 chapter Prologue. Hugh first entered the Gym to look for the runaway Purrloin he had planned to give to his sister for her birthday. Although he assumes there was a Gym Leader there to help him capture Purrloin, Hugh's grandfather revealed that since Aspertia City is such a rural area, the Gym is currently empty as not many candidates have come to take it over.

Five years later, Cheren has become the new teacher of the Aspertia Trainer's School. He teaches Class 75, which consists of 150 students from all across the Unova region.
