Pokémon Scarlet & Violet: All eight gyms in order of difficulty

LIKE most Pokémon games, Pokémon Scarlet and Violet have eight Gyms for you to challenge.

However, the levels aren’t scalable, so it can be difficult to know which ones to try first.

Each one has a mini-game that you must accept first, and there aren’t many instructions on what to do next.

This is the order we think you should take against the Pokémon Scarlet and Violet Gyms to ensure you don’t suffer defeat.

Cortondo Gym – Katy the Bug-type Gym Leader

Katy has the lowest Pokemon of any Gym Leader, making her a great place to start.

The Bug-type is also one of the weaker types in the game, and any Fire, Flying, or Rock-type Pokémon can defeat them.

You can find the latter two types easily, and if you’ve settled on Fuecoco, you’ll have a strong Fire type to start with.

Artazon Gym – Brassius the Grass-type Gym Leader

Brassius should be the next boss you defeat in your journey as his team is a small step away from Katy’s.

Fuecoco trainers will sweep them again, but flying types you picked up will also help.

Grass is also weak to Bug, Poison, and Ice-type attacks, giving you a number of options for taking him down.

Levincia Gym – Iono, the Electro-type Gym Leader

Iono was one of the arena bosses shown in the trailers and is actually one of the easier bosses to defeat.

None of your starter’s attacks will be particularly helpful here, as Electric-types are only weak to Ground-type attacks.

However, their levels aren’t all that impressive, so you should be able to beat them with some resistances like the grass type.

Cascarrafa Gym – Kofu, the water-type gym leader

Sprigatito fans have the edge over Kofu’s Water-type team here again, but we recommend getting it to tier two before attempting this.

Electric-type Pokémon are also useful here, along with any other Grass-types you’ve picked up along the way.

With a few by your side, you shouldn’t have any problems.

Medali Gym – Larry, the regular gym leader

Normal-type Pokémon are weak in battle, but their attacks are neutral for all types except Steel, Ghost, and Stone types.

Ghosts are plentiful throughout Paldea, so you shouldn’t have any trouble picking up a few to bring Larry down.

If your launcher is not in its final form, you should try this before adopting it.

Montenevera Gym – Ryme, the ghost-type gym leader

Ryme is a powerful Gym Leader and her Ghost-type Pokémon should be respected.

They take no damage from Normal or Fighting-type attacks, so don’t try here.

Ghost-types are again the way to go, however, but Dark-types also give you a boost.

Alfornada Gym – Tulip, the Psychic-type gym leader

Tulip has a team of very powerful Psycho-types, and you can get into a bad spot if you’re not prepared.

Ghost, Dark, and Bug-type attacks are a must here, although Bug-types are a little lackluster in Paldea.

By this point, however, you should have a Ghost-type strong enough to take on the Gym, but be wary of Haunter’s Ghost/Poison dual typing.

Glaseado Gym – Grusha, the ice-type gym leader

Ice-type Pokémon have long been thought of as glass cannons, so while they may have little defense, they pack a punch.

Grusha’s team is at a much higher level than the other leaders, which is a difficult challenge.

By now, however, you should have enough Fire, Fighting, Rock, or Steel attacks to take out his team.
