Milo (Japanese: ヤロー Yarrow) is a farmer who is the Gym Leader of Turffield's Gym, known officially as Turffield Stadium. He specializes in Grass-type Pokémon. He gives the Grass Badge to Trainers who defeat him.

In the core series games

Milo is the first Gym Leader Galarian Trainers face in their Gym Challenge. He is a farmer that honed his skills working on his farm with his Pokémon, and can be often seen in Turffield trying to wrangle wandering Wooloo with his farm's herding Yamper. Despite his size and strength, Milo is a gentle, laid-back Trainer who has trouble giving it his all on weaker opponents and doesn't worry about winning or losing so long as each party is having fun. Nessa considers Milo her rival, as revealed in her League Card, but Milo doesn't seem to acknowledge this, claiming the only rival he has is himself.

After Milo's initial defeat, the player is awarded with the Grass Badge, TM10 (Magical Leaf), and the Grass Uniform.

League Cards

This is a transcript of the back of Milo's League Cards in Pokémon Sword and Shield.

Normal League Card
"This Trainer was born as the son of farmers. He has honed his strength, stamina, and skill as a Pokémon Trainer from a young age by working together with his Pokémon. Because of his gentle nature, he has trouble going all out on weaker opponents, which is why his Gym is the first one for challengers to attempt during the Gym Challenge. He always wears his boots, as apparently they let him dig in his heels when he needs to."
Rare League Card
"Though his record isn't the best due to his focus on simply having fun in battles, Milo himself is incredibly strong. The rolls of hay used in his Gym Challenge each weigh over 770 pounds, yet Milo can roll them around easily. Wooloo tend to roll around, too, and sometimes they can get carried away and roll out of the Gym Stadium. It has become common in Turffield to see the whole town chasing after Milo, who is in turn chasing after a stray Wooloo, along with Yamper."


Milo keeps his Pokémon in Ultra Balls.
