Cyllage Gym (Japanese: ショウヨウジム Shōyō Gym) is the official Gym of Cyllage City and the second Gym the player character challenges. It is based on Rock-type Pokémon. The Gym Leader is Grant, who will give out the Cliff Badge upon being defeated.

In the games

The Cyllage Gym exists within a large cave containing an underground waterfall.The gym provides a bench in the rear where the player can sit and view the waterfall. A large, rocky hill takes up the center of the gym, which is covered in rock walls that the player must climb. After defeating Grant, the player can slide down two slopes for a shortcut to the entrance of the gym.

In the anime

The Cyllage Gym was featured in the episode XY025, where Ash and his friends visited it during Ash's Gym challenge. Like in the games, the battlefield is located on the top of a tall climbing wall, but there is also an elevator for those who wish not to climb.

Before the battle, Ash was informed that he was allowed to use all of his current Pokémon in hand against Grant's two Pokémon, as Grant wanted challengers to come at him with everything they had. Thanks to Ash's intensive training after witnessing Grant's battle against Viola at the Battle Chateau, he was able to counter Grant's Onix's Rock Tomb by having his Froakie jump on the boulders, a tactic he had dubbed as "Rock Tomb Climb". Thanks to this method, Froakie was able to get close enough to finish Onix with a super effective Water Pulse.

Grant's second Pokémon, Tyrunt, proved to be a much tougher opponent, surprising Ash with its amazing jumping skills and ability to use Draco Meteor. With these factors on its side, Tyrunt managed to defeat both Froakie and Fletchling, although not before receiving some damage from them, leaving Ash with just Pikachu. Even though Tyrunt as a Dragon-type had the type advantage over Pikachu, Ash was able to come up with a counter method for Draco Meteor, having Pikachu jump on it by using Iron Tail, thus evolving "Rock Tomb Climb" into "Draco Meteor Climb". Afterwards, Pikachu sent one of Tyrunt's Rock Tomb rocks into the Royal Heir Pokémon's mouth with Iron Tail, and then finished it with a Thunderbolt, earning Ash the Cliff Badge.


  • The Cyllage Gym is the only Rock-type Gym that is not the first Gym in its region.
    • The Cyllage Gym is also the only Rock-type Gym where no Trainer uses Geodude at any point.
