Battlefield

The Opelucid Gym (Japanese: ソウリュウジム Soryu Gym) is the official Gym of Opelucid City. The Gym specializes in Dragon-type Pokémon. The Gym Leader the player battles is dependent on the version being played. In Pokémon Black, Black 2 and White 2, the player will battle Drayden and in Pokémon White, the player will battle Iris. Trainers who defeat them receive the Legend Badge.

In the games

Opelucid City Pokémon Gym
Leader: Drayden

"The Spartan Mayor"

Opelucid City Pokémon Gym
Leader: Iris

"The Girl Who Knows the Hearts of Dragons"


The Opelucid Gym is designed like a thin maze, with switches to open up the correct path. These switches cause dragon statues' heads to move, creating new paths for the player. After the switches have been hit in the right order, the path will lead the player to the Leader.

Clyde tells the player about the mechanics of the maze, although he says there are only two dragons, when there are actually three.

In the two years between Black and White and Black 2 and White 2, the Opelucid Gym was remodeled to hide the DNA Splicers; signs of construction can still be seen around the Gym.

In Black 2 and White 2, the Gym features a whiteB2/blackW2 dragon vertically on a wall and a blackB2/whiteW2 dragon which the player can control to move to a certain position by stepping on the buttons appearing on its head. The Trainers of the Gym are on four different levels; the player must defeat at least one Trainer from each level to be able to proceed to the next level. On the topmost level, the player will meet Drayden. The DNA Splicers are hidden within the Gym. Because of this, Team Plasma froze Opelucid City.

In the anime

Opelucid Gym was first mentioned by Brycen in Caution: Icy Battle Conditions! as the next Gym that Ash could challenge. However, before Ash and his friends could start on their road to there, a Nurse Joy in Clash of the Connoisseurs! mentioned that the Gym was closed, in which Iris seemed to be very happy about.

The Gym appeared for the first time in Drayden Versus Iris: Past, Present, and Future!, where Drayden battled Iris and won. Afterwards it was revealed that Drayden was considering Iris to replace him as the Opelucid Gym Leader one day.

In the anime, the Gym is a stone building with two stone dragon statues lining the entrance to the building. Inside is a dimly lit battlefield with statues of Druddigon, Haxorus, and Hydreigon overlooking the field near the ceiling.

Trivia

  • Iris and Drayden's teams are identical except for their genders and the Ability of their Druddigon and the ability of their Haxorus. Iris's Pokémon are all female and Drayden's are all male, Iris's Druddigon has Sheer Force and Drayden's Druddigon has Rough Skin, and Iris's Haxorus has Mold Breaker while Drayden's Haxorus has Rivalry.
  • In Black 2 and White 2, the Veterans' Japanese names are all based on the word "dragon" in different languages: Ryūsei, Tatsumi, and Tatsurō are from the Japanese words ryū and tatsu, Drake is a term sometimes used to refer to European dragons, and Long is Chinese for dragon.
