Are there gyms in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet?

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet (SV) will go in an interesting direction for the series. Rather than having a linear adventure that you can follow from start to finish, it will be an open world adventure that will allow you to explore any region you wish to visit while playing the game. You don’t have to focus on a specific area and advance like everyone else. Instead, you can embark on a unique adventure and try something new. Since Pokemon Scarlet and Violet is an open world, can we expect gyms?

Will Gyms be in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet?

It has not been confirmed whether Gyms have been removed for Pokémon SV or not. Towards the end of the second Pokémon SV trailer, however, we see an arena-like area before we catch a glimpse of the two upcoming Legendary Pokémon. The arena has the iconic PokéBall symbol in the center, with flowers surrounding it where people would sit to watch the grand spectacle.

We only see the arena briefly in the trailer. With no active battles or people around, we can only speculate where a gym would take place.

However, since there’s no confirmation that the Pokémon Company has removed Gyms from SV, we doubt they won’t be in the game. They have been featured in all major Pokémon games. Pokémon Legends: Arceus is one of the few Pokémon games that didn’t feature gyms, but this was a unique adventure and not one of the main games in the series.

Hopefully we’ll hear more details before Pokémon SV releases on November 18th. We cannot confirm if arenas will be in the game or not. However, we advise you to expect them since it will be one of the most important Pokémon games. Are there gyms in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet?
