Battlefield

The Azalea Gym (Japanese: ヒワダジム Hiwada Gym) is the official Gym of Azalea Town. It is based on Bug-type Pokémon. The Gym Leader is Bugsy. Trainers who defeat him receive the Hive Badge.

In the games

Azalea Gym cannot be challenged when the player first arrives in Azalea Town, as a Team Rocket Grunt is blocking the entrance. He doesn't leave until Team Rocket has been defeated at the Slowpoke Well.

In Pokémon Gold, Silver, and Crystal, the Azalea Gym is a giant forest maze. Trainers such as Twins and Bug Catchers hide around every corner, ready to spring upon Trainers. Bugsy is located in the middle of the maze, where he can be challenged to earn the Hive Badge.

A field based on the Gym also appears in Pokémon Stadium 2's Johto Gym Leader Castle.

The Walking Bug Pokémon Encyclopedia

In Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, many aesthetic changes have been made to the Azalea Gym, including a new feature that lets the player ride on Spinarak-shaped karts that travel across different areas of the Gym. The player must travel on the correct spider to advance through the Gym. If the player gets on the wrong spider, however, they will travel to a different area where they must battle a Trainer.

In the anime

The only anime appearance of Bugsy and his Gym came in Gettin' the Bugs Out. The Gym strongly resembles a forest in appearance, with trees and grass growing everywhere. Bugsy lets all of his Pokémon roam free in the Gym, much to Misty's chagrin.

Ash felt confident that his Cyndaquil would be able to easily defeat Bugsy and his Pokémon, but Cyndaquil needed to get warmed up before it was able to use its Fire-type attacks. In the meantime, Ash used his Chikorita and Pikachu to defeat Bugsy's Pokémon. When Ash was down to Cyndaquil, the young Pokémon was able to warm its flame up in time and defeat Bugsy's Scyther.
