Battlefield

The Virbank Gym (Japanese: タチワキジム Tachiwaki Gym) is the official Gym of Virbank City. It is based on Poison-type Pokémon. The Gym Leader is Roxie. Trainers who defeat her receive the Toxic Badge.

In the games

Virbank City Pokémon Gym
Leader: Roxie

"Poison days, poison on the stage!"

The Virbank Gym is designed as an underground music club. Upon entering, the player will have to go down some stairs and enter the club, where Roxie and her band are performing on the stage. The club also doubles as a place for bands to form, as posters fill the walls next to the staircase, and one of them notes a vocalist in the search of the rest of a band. The Gym has a large stage with a picture of a Koffing made out of graffiti on it, chairs and tables, a bar, and a booth for a DJ. Trainers must battle Roxie's two band members before she will battle them.
