The Lavaridge Gym appeared in two episodes of the anime. Its first appearance was in Poetry Commotion!. Flannery had just taken over the Gym from her grandfather, but had not yet had a battle. In fact, the battlefield was filled with holes and hadn't been cleaned up since the last Gym battle. Ash and his friends helped Flannery clean up the battlefield, and they had their Gym battle in the following episode.
