After completing the Main Story, you can rematch the Champion Cup as many times as you would like. This time around, you can select which opponents will be added to the tournament or if you would prefer a random set of foes. There are twenty-six trainers you can face this time around, including Hop
, the eight Gym Leaders, and fifteen Random Pokemon Trainers. Unlike the Random Pokemon Trainers, the Gym Leaders and other Main Characters have stronger Pokemon and each have the ability to Dynamax
one of their Pokemon.Gordie
, of course, is one of the eight Gym Leaders you can face in Pokemon Sword
when rematching the Champion Cup. Gordie still focuses on using Rock Type Pokemon, having Barbaracle, Shuckle, Stonjourner, Tyranitar, and Coalossal when in battle. All of Gordie's Pokemon will be between Levels 60-62, and he'll always Gigantamax
his Coalossal. Because of this, Gordie is still weak against Water Type Pokemon & Attacks. Gordie continues to also struggle against Grass Type and Ground Type Pokemon & Attacks, since most Rock Types are extremely weak against them as well.
