From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
The Violet Gym (Japanese: キキョウジム Kikyō Gym) is the official gym of Violet City. It is based on Template:Type2 Pokémon. The Gym Leader is Falkner. Trainers who defeat him receive the Zephyr Badge.
In the anime
The Violet Gym made its only anime appearance in Fighting Flyer with Fire. The battlefield is on the top of a tall building and is without a roof so that Flying Pokémon can make full use of their abilities.
After saving Pikachu from Team Rocket, Ash challenged Falkner to a battle. The battle got off to a bad start for the young trainer, but it became better when Ash defeated Falkner's Hoothoot and Dodrio. However, the gym leader's Pidgeot proved to be too tough for Pikachu. Using Charizard, Ash was able to defeat Pidgeot and earn his first Johto League badge, the Zephyr Badge.
