Battlefield

The Celadon Gym (Japanese: タマムシジム Tamamushi Gym) is the official Gym of Celadon City. It is based on Grass-type Pokémon. The Gym Leader is Erika. Trainers who defeat her receive the Rainbow Badge.

In all versions and adaptations of Pokémon, Celadon Gym is consistently rendered as a greenhouse.

In the games, the Celadon Gym is a garden full of Trainers, all of which are female. It is impossible to reach Erika without fighting at least one other Trainer and using CutRBYGSCFRLGHGSS or Chop DownPE. In Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, the Gym consists of lanes lined with flower pots and flower-covered archways that form a maze. In Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!, the maze is once again present, although this time consisting of hedges. Also in these games, a ledge allows a one-way shortcut from Erika back to the entrance.

In every game in which the Celadon Gym is present, an old man has appeared outside the Gym, cackling about the girls inside. In Generations IV and VII, his dialogue was changed to comment on the presence of "strong Trainers" instead.

In Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!, the player must show a "cute Pokémon" to Lass Kay at the entrance in order to be allowed to challenge the Gym.

A field based on the Gym also appears in Pokémon Stadium's Gym Leader Castle and Stadium 2's Kanto Gym Leader Castle.

In the anime

Main series

The Celadon Gym appeared in Pokémon Scent-sation!. Ash wanted to challenge the Gym Leader to a Gym battle, but the workers at the Gym refused to allow his entry because he had earlier insulted a perfume shop the Gym made perfumes for. With help from Team Rocket, Ash, in the guise of "Ashley", was able to enter the Gym. However, Pikachu saw through his disguise and Thunder Shocked him to reveal his true identity to everyone else. Ash then challenged Erika to a Gym battle, which she accepted.

However, the battle was interrupted by Team Rocket, who set off a bomb in order to cover their escape with what they assumed was the Gym's perfume's secret formula, setting the entire Gym ablaze. While most of the Pokémon inside were evacuated safely, Erika's Gloom was accidentally left behind, prompting Ash to enter the burning building in order to save it. After the fire was put out, Erika gave Ash a Rainbow Badge as thanks for saving her Pokémon, as well as revealing that Team Rocket had actually only stolen one of the perfume's ingredients, the essence of Gloom, much to the Rocket trio's dismay and disgust.

In the anime, the Celadon Gym is a giant greenhouse, where Erika's multiple Grass-type Pokémon wander around while they're not used for battles.

Pokémon used in Gym

 
Tangela
One of Erika's battling Pokémon, Tangela is a strong Pokémon that manages to use its vines and Stun Spore in order to incapacitate the enemy. In its battle against Ash, it managed to take out Bulbasaur by using this combination. Erika then recalled Tangela when Ash sent out his Charmander.

Tangela's known moves are Constrict and Stun Spore.

Debut Pokémon Scent-sation!
 
Weepinbell
Weepinbell was the next Pokémon Erika sent out to counter Ash's Charmander. Although Erika thought Charmander would be no match against her Grass-type Pokémon, Weepinbell's Razor Leaf was easily knocked away with Flamethrower, and while the Flycatcher Pokémon was dodging the flaming leaves, it was easily finished off with Skull Bash.

It reappeared in a flashback in Bad to the Bone, where it was defeated in a Gym battle by Otoshi's Marowak.

Weepinbell's only known move is Razor Leaf.

Gloom
Gloom once saved Erika from a Grimer when she was a girl. From that moment onwards, they have become very close friends.

Erika used Gloom as her final Pokémon in her Gym battle against Ash Ketchum. With its horrid scent, it defeated Charmander easily. But before it could fight with Ash's Pikachu, a bomb placed in the Gym by Team Rocket exploded, setting the Gym ablaze.

Even though everyone managed to escape, Gloom was still trapped in the Gym surrounded by flames. Ash rushed into the Gym and rescued Gloom. In gratitude for saving Gloom, Erika gave Ash the Rainbow Badge.

It also reappeared in a flashback in Pikachu's Goodbye and Gotta Catch Ya Later!.

None of Gloom's moves are known.

The Celadon Gym also has an outdoor archery range, where Erika occasionally practices her archery skills.

Red, Green & Blue chapter

The Celadon Gym debuted in Meanwhile...Vileplume!, where Erika requested Red to catch Eevee before she would accept his challenge for a Gym battle. When Red found out that Eevee was capable of changing freely between its evolutions and back, he immediately rushed to the Gym, suspecting Erika's involvement, and placed Eevee's Poké Ball into the Gym's healing machine. Before he could start the machine however, Erika appeared and challenged Red to a battle. Red's Saur and Poli didn't stand a chance against Erika's Pokémon, so Red switched for Pika, but even it struggled to withstand Erika's attacks. As Eevee was close to dying, Erika told that she'd give it a painless death. Red refused to accept this and had Pika use Substitute to distract Erika long enough so that Pika could get to the healing machine first. Seeing this, Erika congratulated Red of the well-fought battle and activated the healing machine, restoring Eevee's health. She then explained that she had merely been testing Red to see if he was a brave and trustworthy ally for the fight against Team Rocket, who had been the ones to manipulate Eevee in the first place. As a reward for showing his skills, Erika gave Red a Rainbow Badge.

Yellow chapter

The Celadon Gym, along with the rest of Celadon City, was attacked by Lorelei's army of Shellder and Cloyster. Erika fought against the attackers, preferring to immobilize them rather than hurting them. After Yellow defeated Lance on Cerise Island, the army lost all of its power and collapsed.

Pokémon used in Gym

 
Angela
Angela (Japanese: モンちゃん Mon-chan), Erika's Tangela, first appeared on Cycling Road, where it hopped in front of Red on his bicycle and was nearly run over. Later on, Erika used it to fight Red's Saur when Red and Bill confronted her, thinking that she had been working with Team Rocket. During the Elite Four's invasion of Kanto, it was used to fight off their Ice-type Pokémon that had been attacking Celadon City.

Angela's known moves are Vine Whip, Bind, Absorb, Constrict, and Growth.

Debut Blame It on Eevee
 
Bellsprout
Bellsprout first appeared during Erika's battle with Red, where it used Mimic to defeat Red's Poli.

Bellsprout's only known move is Mimic.
Bellsprout has also used Double Slap* via Mimic.

Debut Meanwhile...Vileplume!
 
Vileplume
Vileplume was first sent out to defend Erika from an attacking Drowzee. When Erika fought Red, she used Vileplume against Pika, lasting a long time before Erika ended the match and awarded Red the Badge. She was later seen when Erika met up with Yellow.

Vileplume's known moves are Petal Dance and Swords Dance, and her Ability is Chlorophyll.

Debut Blame It on Eevee

Pokémon Zensho

Celadon Gym appeared in Celadon City, where Satoshi challenged Erika to a Gym battle, using his Charmeleon against Erika's Vileplume. As Charmeleon was blinded by Vileplume's Petal Dance, one of its Fire attacks accidentally set Erika's kimono on fire, and Satoshi had Charmeleon slash off the burning portion of the kimono before Erika could get hurt. Erika was about to be declared the winner, but she intervened, saying Satoshi had raised his Charmeleon well. She then rewarded Satoshi with a Rainbow Badge.

Trivia

  • In Generations I, III, and VII, Celadon Gym's Gym guide can be found playing at the Rocket Game Corner, instead of advising the player on how to defeat Erika.
  • The Celadon Gym is the only Kanto Gym that requires the use of an HM as part of a Gym puzzle in order to progress in all generations where HMs are present, except Generation II.
    • Despite Cut not being required inside the Gym in Generation II, it is required in all Generations to access the Gym itself.
  • In Generations I, II, and III, the Gym is shaped like the female gender symbol (♀), representing its all-female population of Gym Trainers.
  • In Generation IV, just like in rain, Water- and Grass-type walking Pokémon will feel very happy under the Gym's showers, while Fire-, Ground-, and Rock-type Pokémon will feel unhappy.
  • In Pokémon Yellow, if the player uses Cut on the bottom tree and battles the Cooltrainer directly north of it, after the battle, the cut tree will have respawn. If the player's Pikachu is present in the overworld, it will be standing on the tree. This won't prevent the player from using Cut on the tree, however.
