In the anime

Olivine Gym has made two appearances in the anime. It first appeared in Fight for the Light!. After a long journey, Ash and his friends had finally reached Olivine, and Ash was eager for a Gym battle. When he entered the Gym, a girl claiming to be Jasmine challenged him to a battle. After losing to her Onix, Ash learned that the girl wasn't Jasmine at all. It was her apprentice, Janina. She apologized for misleading Ash, and the Trainer forgave her.

Jasmine herself wasn't in the mood for a battle. Sparkle, the Ampharos who provided the light for the Olivine Lighthouse, had gotten very sick. The way to treat it was with medicine found in Cianwood City. Ash and the others went with Janina to Cianwood to pick up the medicine.

After his adventures in the Whirl Islands, Ash returned to Olivine to battle Jasmine again in Nerves of Steelix!. She accepted his challenge, with Janina serving as referee. After Pikachu defeated her Magnemite, she sent out her Steelix, which quickly defeated the Electric-type. But Cyndaquil managed to defeat the Iron Snake Pokémon, earning Ash his Mineral Badge.


  • The Olivine Gym is one of three Gyms in the games thus far not to have any Trainers but the Leader. The others are Generation II's Viridian Gym and Cinnabar Gym.
    • In the Generation IV remakes, the Gym contains Gentleman Preston and Lass Connie, who were battled by the player at the Glitter Lighthouse, though neither Trainer challenges the player in the Gym. Strangely, neither Trainer uses Steel-type Pokémon when battled at the Glitter Lighthouse.
