Battlefield

The Dewford Gym (Japanese: ムロジム Muro Gym) is the official Gym of Dewford Town. It is the second of the eight official Hoenn League Gyms. The Gym Leader, Brawly, specializes in Fighting-type Pokémon. Trainers who defeat him will receive the Knuckle Badge.

In the games

In Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald, the Dewford Gym is a pitch-black maze, with Gym Trainers hiding in the darkness. As Trainers are defeated, the Gym lights up bit by bit. Once Brawly is beaten, the entire Gym lights up completely.

In Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, the Gym is redesigned as a darkened exercise gym with a lit central hallway with conveyor belts that restrict movement. The hallway also contains switches on the floor that momentarily light up the side passages through the rest of the gym when stepped on, giving the player a glimpse of the maze before they attempt it to progress. Once Brawly is defeated, the Gym is permanently lit up.

When defeated, Brawly will give the player the Knuckle Badge as well as TM08 (Bulk Up) as a reward.

In the anime

Dewford Gym first appeared in Brave the Wave. Brock, May and Max are woken up by Ash so that he can battle Brawly. However when they reach the Gym they find Brawly at surfing practice. He tells them he will battle Ash later.

When Brawly finally does begin the battle, Ash is thoroughly annoyed. The battle is a two Pokémon each, no time limit rule battle. Ash sends out Taillow which is defeated by Brawly's Machop. Treecko then defeats the Machop, before in turn being beaten by Brawly's Makuhita which evolves into Hariyama during the battle. Ash is disheartened by this defeat, but Brawly encourages him to go on.

In the manga

Dewford Gym in the Pokémon Pocket Monsters manga

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Dewford Gym first appeared in Mashing Makuhita, when Sapphire challenged Brawly into a Gym battle. Using his surfing tactics to avoid Sapphire's attacks, Brawly easily gained the upper hand, especially when his Makuhita evolved into Hariyama. However, thanks to Chic's Double Kick, Sapphire was eventually able to defeat Hariyama and win the battle, earning herself the Knuckle Badge.

In the Pokémon Pocket Monsters manga

Dewford Gym makes its only appearance in The Haunted Gym where a Sableye helps Red navigate through the Gym since it was too dark for him to see.
