The Cerulean Gym is designed like an indoor swimming pool, with platforms above the water for the player to walk on. In Generation IV, the Gym consists of a large pool roped off into lanes with certain parts of the area circling the pool blocked. There are no puzzles to solve in this Gym.

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

Cerulean Gym's Aquarium

In the main series

Cerulean Gym has appeared in several episodes of the anime. On the exterior, the building is a dome-shaped brightly colored Gym with a gigantic painting of a Dewgong on top of it. On the inside, the gym is equipped with a large aquarium and swimming pool.

Another view of the battlefield

It first appeared in The Water Flowers of Cerulean City. Ash was heading there so he could earn his Cascade Badge. Misty kept telling him not to go to Cerulean, and he soon discovered why she tried to stop him; her three sisters, Violet, Lily and Daisy, were the Gym Leaders. However, they had turned the battlefield into a performance hall for their water acrobatics shows. Incapable of giving Ash a proper Gym battle, they were about to simply give Ash the Badge when Misty intervened. She challenged Ash to a battle in her capacity as an official Gym Leader, but it was interrupted by Team Rocket. In the end, Daisy gave Ash the Cascade Badge, saying that if it weren't for him, the Gym would have been destroyed.

The Gym's next appearance was in The Misty Mermaid. While on the way to the Viridian Gym, Misty's Horsea had become sick. Realizing the Gym was nearby, Misty decided to go and see if they could make Horsea feel better. The Dragon Pokémon felt better immediately. However, the sisters made Misty participate in one of their water ballet shows. During a Team Rocket battle, the Seel the Sensational Sisters had in their first appearance evolved into Dewgong and saved the Gym. Before leaving, Misty left her Horsea and Starmie at the Gym, hoping one day to come back for them.

The Gym also played key roles in several Pokémon Chronicles episodes. In Cerulean Blues, the Gym was in danger of being shut down. Misty, who was recently named Gym Leader after her sisters won a trip around the world, was successfully able to fix it up and stop it from getting shut down. In the process, she earned a Gym Gyarados's trust. In The Blue Badge of Courage, Sakura challenged Misty to a Gym battle and won her own Cascade Badge. Casey visited the Gym in A Date with Delcatty, and Misty and Daisy's two Luvdisc, Caserin and Luverin, were stolen by Butch and Cassidy in Luvdisc is a Many Splendored Thing.

Cerulean Gym in Pokémon Origins

In Pokémon Origins

Cerulean Gym was briefly seen in the Pokémon Origins episode File 2 - Cubone, when Red recalled of having a tough battle with Misty, but eventually emerging victorious, thus earning the Cascade Badge.

In the manga

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

The Cerulean Gym debuted in Suddenly Starmie! in the Red, Green & Blue chapter where Red and Misty trained to fight Team Rocket using Bulbasaur and Starmie. There is an abundance of rooms but at the end Misty revealed that she was the Gym Leader and she had attacked him the night before, ending in tears.

Cerulean Gym in Pokémon Pocket Monsters

In Pokémon Pocket Monsters, the Cerulean Gym only appeared in Obtain the Moon Stone!! where Red and his Pokémon fought Misty in order to obtain the Moon Stone she had with her. In the manga, the Cerulean Gym is depicted in a very traditional Japanese architectural style.

In the TCG

The Cerulean Gym was featured in the TCG as both a Japan exclusive Theme Deck and as a card. The following is a list of cards named Cerulean City Gym.

Trivia

  • Prior to Crystal, it was possible to catch wild Pokémon inside the Gym by fishing in the water. This makes the Cerulean Gym the only Gym where it is possible to catch wild Pokémon inside the facility itself.
  • In Gold, Silver, and Crystal, the player can walk along the path around the edge of the Gym and use Surf to go directly to Misty, bypassing all Trainers lying along the normal path.
  • In Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver Versions, if the player brings a Togepi inside the Gym, it may begin to cry softly when the player talks to it. This is a reference to Misty's Togepi in the anime.
