Battlefield

The Castelia Gym (Japanese: ヒウンジム Hiun Gym) is the official Gym of Castelia City. It is based on Bug-type Pokémon. The Gym Leader is Burgh. Trainers who defeat him receive the Insect Badge.

In the games

Castelia City Pokémon Gym
Leader: Burgh

"Premier Insect Artist"

In Black and White, the Castelia Gym is designed like a huge beehive. It contains many small hexagonal rooms, several of which are cut off by walls of honey, which are at first barricaded by gates. There are buttons which are placed in the center of most of the rooms, and if certain buttons are stepped on, they trigger the gates to descend. However, a few buttons make Trainers who battle the player appear instead. The player is able to walk through the walls of honey once these gates are gone, allowing them to venture through the Gym and battle Burgh. The Gym is also decorated with pictures painted by Burgh himself. The room in which Burgh stands is slightly different to the previous rooms. The hexagonal room leads to a set of stairs, which leads up to a platform on which Burgh stands.

In Black 2 and White 2, the Gym has been redesigned. The Gym is now made up of multiple levels of silk, and the player must travel through silk cocoons to go between the different levels, battling Harlequins along the way, eventually making their way to the top floor, where Burgh is. The top floor is filled with colored paint on the floor, and Burgh's paintings are hung around the room. After reaching Burgh's room, the player is able to jump down a hole on the left side that leads to the bottom of the Gym.

In the anime

The Gym is a lilac building with huge glass windows on the walls and roof and a plant pattern above the front door. It is surrounded by skyscrapers and trees on a street called Gym Street. Leading to the front door are camouflage tiles. The inside is a botanical garden with a path for Trainers to walk on. Bug Pokémon such as Sewaddle also reside here. Some of the trees are from Pinwheel Forest. The battlefield rises through the floor, it is a sandy terrain. Around the battlefield is more foliage with two huge propagators either side of it.

Ash and his friends arrived there in Battling For The Love of Bug-Types! where Ash challenged Burgh to a Gym battle and won his third Badge. His Sewaddle evolved into a Swadloon here too. In addition to Swadloon, Ash also used his Pikachu and his Tepig in their Gym battle.

In the manga

In Pokémon Adventures

The Gym appears in Big City Battles and The Case of the Missing Pokémon. The Gym puzzle is one of Burgh's artworks created by painting the walls with honey, and it was crafted for Black's Gym challenge. In the latter round, Iris brought an unconscious Bianca to the Gym.
