How Do Pokemon Gyms Work?

Unlike previous Mainstream Pokemon Games, Pokemon Gyms in Pokemon Sword & Shield are comprised of two separate aspects. The first is the Gym Mission, where players must complete certain tasks as the battle through trainers on their way to Stadium. Once the Stadium of a Pokemon Gym is reached, trainers will battle the Gym Leader. Each and every Gym Leader will Dynamax or Gigantamax their final Pokemon, and players will always receive a TM and Uniform for earning the Gym Badge (as well as the ability for Pokemon up to a certain level to listen to them).


Early rumors were that there would be a Pokemon Gym for every Pokemon Type, but that turned out not to be the case. Instead, a player will still only need to defeat 8 Pokemon Gyms before earning access to the Champion Cup. There are a actually a total of 10 Pokemon Gyms in The Galar Region, but each version of the game has two exclusive Pokemon Gyms. Furthermore, there is no Elite Four in the Galar Region. Instead, players will compete in a tournament style competition called the Champion Cup. This is where players will face off with Rivals and Gym Leaders on their way to battling Leon to become the next Galar Region Champion.
