Debut Showdown at Dark City

Dark City (Japanese: ダークシティ Dark City) is an anime-exclusive location in Kanto found in between the Safari Zone and Cinnabar Island.

The city does not have an official Pokémon Gym, but two rival Gyms seek the wealth and glory that comes with having an official Gym. When Ash and his friends visit the city in Showdown at Dark City, the city was shown to be in disrepair because of the constant warfare from the competing Gyms. The residents of this town detest and fear Pokémon Trainers.

Neither the Yas Gym nor the Kaz Gym specialize in a certain type, and their leaders' main Pokémon are Scyther and Electabuzz respectively. For this reason, their followers do not appear to join for personal connection with a type of Pokémon (unlike in most Gyms), and the actions of Yas and Kaz appear to intimidate Trainers into joining their Gym (lest they join the rival Gym).

After an agent for the Pokémon Inspection Agency determined that neither Gym was worthy of being an official Gym due to using Pokémon as gang tools, the two rivals agree to stop fighting and work together to reconstruct the town that they had destroyed with their vicious and cruel fighting.
