The Fuchsia Gym (Japanese: セキチクジム Sekichiku Gym) is the official Gym of Fuchsia City. It is based on Poison-type Pokémon. In Generations I and III, the Gym Leader is Koga. However, by Generations II and IV, the Gym Leader's duties had been taken up by Koga's daughter, Janine, as he had advanced to the Elite Four. Trainers who are victorious over this Gym will receive the Soul Badge.

The Fuchsia Gym can be difficult to navigate, as it features invisible walls that were installed by Ninja Master Koga. Janine kept these in place when she took over. In addition, she added another layer of difficulty: all the other Trainers in the Gym look exactly like her.

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

In the anime

In the main series

Fuchsia Gym appeared in only one episode of the anime. Its appearance is based on an old-fashioned Japanese mansion. Located in a forest outside of the main city, the Gym is filled with booby traps, including invisible walls and a horde of explosive Voltorb. Battles take place either inside the mansion or in the courtyard outside.

In The Ninja Poké-Showdown, Ash sought out the Fuchsia Gym in order to defeat Koga for his sixth Badge. Before he could find Koga, he found what appeared to be a stray Venonat. After following it into the Gym and finding several Voltorb, Ash and his friends encountered Aya, who revealed the Venonat to be hers. After defeating her, Koga, Aya's brother, appeared and accepted Ash's challenge. The battle was interrupted by Team Rocket, who wanted to steal all of the Gym's Pokémon. Thanks to Psyduck, and Koga's use of a slanted room, the trio was sent blasting off. Ash and Koga continued their battle outside. With the help of Charmander, Ash defeated Koga and earned his Soul Badge.

While trying to find their way through the Fuchsia Gym, Ash and friends encountered Aya, who challenged Ash to a battle. During the battle, Aya used Venonat and Ash used Bulbasaur. Eventually, Bulbasaur was able to defeat Venonat with its Leech Seed. Aya also tried to use Venonat to battle against Team Rocket, but was tied up by a sticky net cast by James and Jessie.

Venonat reappeared in Ash's flashback in Bad to the Bone, when he remembered how he obtained his Gym Badges.

In Ariados, Amigos, Aya used Venonat in a rematch against Ash, who used Bulbasaur again. Like before, Venonat lost the battle. It was also later used to battle and defeat Team Rocket who had stolen Poké Balls from the dojo.

Venonat's known moves are Stun Spore, Psybeam, Poison Sting, Tackle, Supersonic, and Rest.

When Ash challenged Koga, Koga sent out his Venonat, which Ash originally underestimated since he had previously defeated his sister's Venonat quite easily but then it instantly evolved into a Venomoth, and proceeded to get the upper hand in its Gym battle with Pidgeotto. The battle was interrupted by Team Rocket, and afterwards, Koga offered to trade Venomoth to Misty for her Psyduck, but she declined.

Venomoth's known moves are Stun Spore and Sleep Powder.
