Battlefield

The Olivine Gym (Japanese: アサギジム Asagi Gym) is the official Gym of Olivine City. It is based on Steel-type Pokémon. The Gym Leader is Jasmine. Trainers who defeat her receive the Mineral Badge.

In the games

Generation II

Olivine City
Pokémon Gym
Leader: Jasmine
The Steel-Clad Defense Girl

In Pokémon Gold, Silver, and Crystal, the Gym is completely free from any Gym Trainers or puzzles, allowing the player to go straight to Jasmine immediately after clearing the Glitter Lighthouse.

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

Generation IV

Olivine City Pokémon Gym
Leader: Jasmine
The Steel-Clad Defense Girl

In Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, the Gym has changed, but only slightly. There are now two Gym Trainers, but they won't battle the player. Instead, they simply express their gratitude of the player for helping the sick Ampharos at the Glitter Lighthouse, thus serving no problem for reaching Jasmine.

In the anime

Olivine Gym has made two appearances in the anime. It first appeared in Fight for the Light!. After a long journey, Ash and his friends had finally reached Olivine, and Ash was eager for a Gym battle. When he entered the Gym, a girl claiming to be Jasmine challenged him to a battle. After losing to her Onix, Ash learned that the girl wasn't Jasmine at all. It was her apprentice, Janina. She apologized for misleading Ash, and the Trainer forgave her.

Jasmine herself wasn't in the mood for a battle. Sparkle, the Ampharos who provided the light for the Olivine Lighthouse, had gotten very sick. The way to treat it was with medicine found in Cianwood City. Ash and the others went with Janina to Cianwood to pick up the medicine.

After his adventures in the Whirl Islands, Ash returned to Olivine to battle Jasmine again in Nerves of Steelix!. She accepted his challenge, with Janina serving as referee. After Pikachu defeated her Magnemite, she sent out her Steelix, which quickly defeated the Electric-type. But Cyndaquil managed to defeat the Iron Snake Pokémon, earning Ash his Mineral Badge.

Trivia

  • The Olivine Gym is one of three Gyms in the games thus far not to have any Trainers but the Leader. The others are Generation II's Viridian Gym and Cinnabar Gym.
    • In the Generation IV remakes, the Gym contains Gentleman Preston and Lass Connie, who were battled by the player at the Glitter Lighthouse, though neither Trainer challenges the player in the Gym. Strangely, neither Trainer uses Steel-type Pokémon when battled at the Glitter Lighthouse.
