*Saffron City is unique, in that it has two gyms, the official Psychic Gym and the Fighting Dojo. Originally the Fighting Dojo was a Kanto League operated gym before it fought for its position against the psychic applicants. They obviously lost. Though it was once filled with Blackbelts, the Gym is reduced to a sparring facility among Gym Leaders and a guest of their choice as the head of the Dojo, Karate Master Kiyo, left to train in Mt. Mortar.

*** AJ's Gym: A infamous gym in Kanto known for his strict training and perfect 100 win streak. The gym was shut down by AJ, its owner, after going out to collect badges from official Gyms.

* Unofficial Gyms not authorized by the Pokemon League are sometimes opened by aspiring would-be Gym Leaders, and serve many of the same purposes as officially sanctioned Gyms. It is illegal for these Gyms to issue official League badges, although they may issue their own tokens to trainers who beat their Leaders. Unofficial Gyms that acquire strong reputations can become highly sought after as [[BraggingRightsReward proof of a trainer's skill]], despite not being usable for entry into a League tournament or an Elite Four challenge. Of course, unofficial Gyms may also apply for and receive official sanction from the Pokemon League if they satisfy all the necessary criteria, and their tokens will become official League badges.

!! Purpose

Any organization involved in society needs a public face, and
the edit button Pokémon League is no exception.

Gyms are found in most major cities of consequence. As implied by their name, they serve as centers of training expertise, as well as meeting facilities.

Each Gym has a Leader, responsible for managing the Gym's schedule of events and heading various programs. Leaders are expected
to start this new page. be accomplished Trainers, and are typically drawn in a competitive process from a pool of tournament finalists.

!! Functions / Duties

For competitive Trainers, Gyms are primarily seen as obstacles to overcome, as the traditional tournament requires possession of eight Gym Badges for entry.

A Gym awards its Badge to Trainers who can defeat its Leader in a controlled Pokémon Battle. The Leader typically does not field their personal team, however; rather, based on the challenger's Badge count, the Leader will assemble a challenging, but fairly matched, team from the Gym Pokémon.

While Badge matches are a high-profile Gym function, the bulk of a Leader's time is spent each day on simply overseeing the training of the Gym's Pokémon. Gyms are encouraged to explore and develop novel battle tactics and fitness regimens; to aid focus, modern Gyms continue the traditional practice of limiting one's training to one type.

During times of crisis, the local Gym and its Pokémon are expected to be the first responders.
