Ryme (Japanese: ライム Lime) is a Gym Leader of Montenevera's Gym, known officially as the Montenevera Gym. She specializes in Ghost-type Pokémon.

In the core series games

Ryme is the younger sister of Tyme, the math instructor of Naranja AcademyS/Uva AcademyV, who was previously the Montenevera Gym Leader. Ryme is also a renowned hip-hop artist who often partakes in rap battles. She puts great emotions and passions into both her rapping and her Pokémon battles.[4] She has been a legendary rapper for four decades. As a teen, she wrote a song to express her grief over the death of her Puppy Pokémon. Her singing revived it as a ghost Pokémon. She is still said to "bring the dead to their feet" as the "MC of RIP" thanks to the themes of death in her rap music. It is for these reasons that she decided to become a Ghost-type Pokémon Trainer.

In addition to her Gym Badge, Ryme gives out TM114 (Shadow Ball) after defeating her.

In The Indigo Disk, Ryme can be invited to Blueberry Academy as a special coach.


Ryme is always faced in a Double Battle. She will Terastallize her Toxtricity at the first opportunity.

Gym battle

Certain actions during the Gym battle will cause the spectators to cheer for either Trainer. This causes the Pokémon from the supported side to receive stat boosts in one or more of their stats.


League Club Room

Traded to the player

Upon the third unique interaction with Ryme in the League Club Room, she will trade a Greavard to the player in exchange for almost any Pokémon excluding Shiny, Legendary, or Mythical Pokémon.

In the TCG

Ultra rare print of Ryme
Main article: Ryme (Obsidian Flames 194)

Ryme was introduced as a Supporter card in the Pokémon Trading Card Game during the English Scarlet & Violet Series (the Japanese Scarlet & Violet Era). It was first released in the Japanese Ruler of the Black Flame expansion and the English Obsidian Flames expansion, with artwork by nagimiso. An ultra rare version with artwork by the same illustrator was released in the same sets. It allows players to draw 3 cards, and then switch out their opponent's Active Pokémon to the Bench (the new Active Pokémon is chosen by the opponent).


  • Ryme's Japanese Gym Leader title is ソウルフルビート.
  • Befitting her status as a Ghost-type specialist, Ryme's front-falling ponytail resembles a skeleton's arm and her central back braid ends in a shape resembling a simplified representation of a pelvis.
  • Ryme's ace and Terastallized Pokémon being Toxtricity alludes to their shared trait of music.
