Battlefield

The Santalune Gym (Japanese: ハクダンジム Hakudan Gym) is the official Gym of Santalune City, and is the first Gym the player challenges in Pokémon X and Y. It is based on Bug-type Pokémon. The Gym Leader is Viola. Trainers that defeat her receive the Bug Badge.

In the games

The first room of the Gym resembles a gallery, and displays many of Viola's photographs. Sliding down the rope in the center of the room takes the player to the room below, which is large, dark, and has many giant plants growing in it. Several Trainers await challengers in this room, standing on wooden platforms that are linked together by a giant spiderweb. The player may walk on this spiderweb to navigate the room, though there are several darker sections that cannot be stepped on. Although there are many paths leading to the end of the room, a series of large water droplets will mark out the quickest route that the player can take while facing as little Trainers as possible. After defeating Viola, who resides on a large, wooden platform towards the back of the room, the tent behind her will pull back to reveal a staircase that leads to a hidden passage. This passage opens out behind one of the photographs in the first room, which will slide back into place once the player has left.

In the anime

The Santalune Gym first appeared in A Blustery Santalune Gym Battle!, where Ash challenged Viola to a gym battle, but lost. The Gym reappeared in Battling on Thin Ice! for Ash's rematch, in which he defeated Viola.

Trivia

  • Two of the photographs that appear in the first room of the Gym are titled "To Be Evolved" and "Nectar's Siren Song", and feature a Metapod and a Butterfree, respectively.
