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.

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. Behind the Gym Leader, there's a [[warp tile]] the player can use as a shortcut back to the entrance.
   
 
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 {{2v2|Black|White|2}}, the Gym features a white{{sup/5|B2}}/black{{sup/5|W2}} dragon vertically on a wall and a black{{sup/5|B2}}/white{{sup/5|W2}} 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.

Opelucid Gym was first mentioned by [[Brycen]] in ''[[BW079|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 ''[[BW080|Clash of the Connoisseurs!]]'' mentions that the Gym was closed, in which {{an|Iris}} seemed to be very happy about.

The Opelucid Gym first appeared in ''[[PS504|The Cold Hard Truth]]'', where Drayden was seen holding a press conference in front of the Gym. He announced that the date of the {{un|Pokémon League}} tournament had been pushed up, being held in one week instead of the originally planned three months. Inside the Gym, Drayden explained [[Kimi]], his secretary, that the decision was made in order to lure [[Team Plasma]] out of hiding.
  +
  +
In ''[[PS526|Mr. Perfect]]'', it was revealed that Iris had been made the new Gym Leader of the Opelucid Gym, although Drayden has plans to reclaim his position at some point.
  +
  +
In [[Pokémon Adventures]], as shown in ''[[PS505|A Cold Reception]]'', the Gym has similar dragon statues as in {{2v2|Black|White}}.

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"

Pokémon Black and White

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. Behind the Gym Leader, there's a warp tile the player can use as a shortcut back to the entrance.

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

Pokémon Black 2 and White 2

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.

The Gym now 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 freezes Opelucid City after the player has defeated Drayden.

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, 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.

Haxorus's moves are Rock Smash and Giga Impact.

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

The Opelucid Gym first appeared in The Cold Hard Truth, where Drayden was seen holding a press conference in front of the Gym. He announced that the date of the Pokémon League tournament had been pushed up, being held in one week instead of the originally planned three months. Inside the Gym, Drayden explained Kimi, his secretary, that the decision was made in order to lure Team Plasma out of hiding.

In Mr. Perfect, it was revealed that Iris had been made the new Gym Leader of the Opelucid Gym, although Drayden has plans to reclaim his position at some point.

In Pokémon Adventures, as shown in A Cold Reception, the Gym has similar dragon statues as in Black and White.

Druddigon
Druddigon is Drayden's only known Pokémon. It was first used to battle Iris's Fraxure, where it easily defeated its opponent. When Drayden was speaking to the press in front of his Gym, Druddigon roared at the crowd to get them to quiet down. During Drayden's Gym battle against Black, Druddigon went up against Black's Brav. With its speed, Druddigon proved to be a powerful foe, but was defeated when Brav opened a door to let in a blizzard, freezing Druddigon in place and making it defenseless from an attack.

Druddigon's known moves are Dragon Tail, Dragon Rage, and Rock Climb, and its Ability is Sheer Force.
