Battlefield

The Veilstone Gym (Japanese: トバリジム Tobari Gym) is the official Gym of Veilstone City. It is based on Fighting-type Pokémon. The Gym Leader is Maylene. Trainers who defeat her receive the Cobble Badge.

The Veilstone Gym was the third Gym in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, but in Pokémon Platinum this was changed to the fourth Gym.

In the games

Veilstone City Pokémon Gym
Leader: Maylene
The Barefoot, Fighting Genius!

Pokémon Diamond and Pearl

The Veilstone Gym is a dojo composed of several smaller rooms intersected with mobile walls. Trainers wait in the tiny cubicles. To get to Maylene, the walls must be shifted in and out of the cubicles so that the empty spaces in the walls line up with each other and a path is clear. Maylene's students are four brothers who call themselves the "Karate Quads" and insist they fight "for LOVE!" "for COURAGE!" "for HOPE!" and "for TEARS!"

Pokémon Platinum

In Pokémon Platinum, the player must push around punching bags in order to knock over piles of tires that are blocking the player's path. The Black Belts await the player in roped-off boxing arenas.

Maylene's Meditite
Meditite
Meditite first appeared in a flashback in Lost Leader Strategy! where it was used in Maylene's battle against Paul. As Maylene was out of sync with Meditite, it was easily defeated by Honchkrow.

Its first full appearance was during Maylene's Gym battle against Dawn in Crossing the Battle Line!. Unlike the battle against Paul, in this battle Meditite was used to its full potential, being able to defeat Buneary before being knocked out by Ambipom's Double Hit.

It was next used in the Gym battle against Ash, where it was able to confuse both Staravia and Chimchar but was unable to defeat them. It eventually fell to Staravia's newly learned Brave Bird.

Meditite's known moves are Detect, Drain Punch, Confusion, and Meditate.

Machoke
Machoke first appeared in Lost Leader Strategy! during the flashback of Maylene's Gym battle against Paul. It was called upon second to battle Honchkrow but it was quickly knocked out by Sky Attack. It was not used during the Gym battle against Dawn.

It was the first Pokémon used by Maylene during her Gym battle against Ash, where it put up a strong defense against his Staravia despite the type disadvantage. Despite this however Machoke was still defeated by the Starling Pokémon's combination of Quick Attack and Aerial Ace.

Machoke's known moves are Dynamic Punch, Brick Break, Cross Chop, and Seismic Toss.

Main article: Maylene's Lucario

Lucario first appeared alongside Maylene training during Lost Leader Strategy! where it was unhappy with Maylene due to her depression from losing against Paul and, as a result, their bond was extremely strained. However, after defeating Dawn's Ambipom and Piplup, Lucario and Maylene were soon back in sync with each other which helped it to defeat Staravia and Chimchar and force Ash's Buizel to a draw during the Gym battle against Ash.

Lucario was later used to help protect Veilstone City's famous meteorites from being stolen by Saturn during Enter Galactic!.
