The Artazon Gym (Japanese: ボウルジム Bowl Gym) is the official Gym of Artazon. It is based on Grass-type Pokémon. The Gym Leader is Brassius. Trainers who defeat him receive the Grass Badge.

In the games

Like all other Gyms in Paldea, the Artazon Gym building itself is simply used for registering Gym challengers. The Gym Test and Gym battle are both conducted at other locations within Artazon.

Gym Test

The Artazon Gym Test is Sunflora Hide-and-Seek, which is initiated at the Sunflora Lawn. The player must find ten Sunflora hiding across Artazon in order to pass. After a Sunflora is found, it will follow the player until the end of the Gym Test. Sometimes, a Sunflora will battle the player upon being found.

These Sunflora cannot be caught; the Bag will not display the Poké Balls pocket and the battle interface will not display the X Button shortcut to use a Poké Ball. The player also cannot escape; the game will display "You can't escape!" (instead of the usual "You couldn't get away!") and not take up the player's turn.

Gym battle

Brassius will Terastallize his Sudowoodo at the first opportunity.

In the anime

The Artazon Gym appeared in Nemona and Brassius and…, where Brassius had temporarily closed it due to him experiencing an artist's slump. After Liko, Roy, and Nemona had gathered lots of Sunflora to the Sunflora Lawn in the hopes of cheering Brassius up, Brassius challenged Roy to an unofficial battle to test if he was worthy of facing the Black Rayquaza. Despite Roy's Fuecoco learning Stomping Tantrum during the match, he was still defeated after Brassius Terastallized his Sudowoodo.

Pokémon used in the Gym


Sudowoodo is Brassius's second known Pokémon. It is capable of Terastallizing into a Grass type. Brassius used it in his battle against Roy and his Fuecoco. Despite Fuecoco learning Stomping Tantrum during the battle, Sudowoodo was still able to defeat it after Terastallizing.

In HZ048, Sudowoodo was used to battle Roy and his Fuecoco a second time for his Terastal Training test, only to be defeated.

Sudowoodo's known moves are Rock Throw, Substitute, Taunt, Trailblaze, and Stone Edge.
