Battlefield

The Petalburg Gym (Japanese: トウカジム Touka Gym) is the official Gym of Petalburg City. It is based on Normal-type Pokémon. The Gym Leader is Norman. Trainers who defeat him receive the Balance Badge.

In the games

Between the entrance and Gym Leader Norman are a series of rooms, each containing a Trainer. In order to access these rooms, all of the first four Badges must be obtained first; otherwise, the doors will be locked. The Trainers have special methods of battling, as displayed on the doors leading to their rooms. They include the One-Hit KO Room, Accuracy Room, Attack Room, Defense Room, Speed Room, Recovery Room and either Zero Reduction RoomRS or Confusion RoomE. Once three rooms in a row are completed, they can access the Gym Leader Room with Norman. In Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire, all seven Trainers in their respective rooms use items in the battle, whereas in Pokémon Emerald, the strategy of these Trainers is dependent on the moves of their Pokémon.

When defeated, Norman will give the player the Balance Badge as well as TM42 (Facade) as a reward.

In the anime

The Petalburg Gym has appeared in multiple episodes of the anime.

It first appeared in There's No Place Like Hoenn. Ash and May reached the Gym, where Ash intended to battle Norman and win his first Badge. However, when Norman learned that Ash only had Pikachu with him, he declined the battle. He did agree to an unofficial battle, which the young Trainer lost.

Its next major appearance came in Love, Petalburg Style, when Ash had his official Gym battle against Norman. This time, with the help of his Grovyle and Torkoal, Ash defeated the Gym Leader and earned the Balance Badge.

In addition to housing the battlefield, the Gym is also home to Norman, his family and the Gym assistant Kenny. A greenhouse is also on the Gym's property. The various Normal Pokémon at the Gym make their home in the greenhouse when they're not battling. May has also left her Pokémon at the greenhouse for her parents to watch.

It is Max's dream to one day succeed his father as Gym Leader, and he approaches this goal through the knowledge of Pokémon battle strategy tactics.
