The Fuchsia Gym (Japanese: セキチクジム Sekichiku Gym) is the official Gym of Fuchsia City. It is based on Poison-type Pokémon. In Generations I, III, and VII, the Gym Leader is Koga. However, by Generations II and IV, the Gym Leader's duties have been taken up by Koga's daughter, Janine, as he has advanced to the Elite Four. Trainers who are victorious over this Gym will receive the Soul Badge.

The Fuchsia Gym's puzzle involves a maze of invisible walls, filled with Trainers studying under the Gym Leader. In Generations II and IV, the new Gym Leader, Janine, has added a new level of difficulty into the puzzle by having all the Trainers in the Gym disguise themselves as her until they are challenged or she herself is defeated. In Generation II, the real Janine is located near the west wall, while in Generation IV, she's standing in the middle of the Gym, much like her father before her. In Generation VII, the Gym also has a ledge, and the invisible walls disappear once the Gym Leader has been defeated.

In Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!, the player must have caught Pokémon from at least 50 different species 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 Fuchsia Gym appeared in The Ninja Poké-Showdown. Its appearance is based on an old-fashioned Japanese mansion. Located in a forest outside of Fuchsia City itself, the Gym is filled with booby traps, including invisible walls, turning and collapsing walls, a slanted room, and a horde of explosive Voltorb. Battles take place either inside the mansion or in the courtyard outside.

Ash sought out the Fuchsia Gym in order to defeat its Gym Leader for his sixth Badge. After wandering around the Gym for a while, Ash and his friends met Aya, who challenged Ash to a battle. After Ash had defeated Aya, the Gym Leader and Aya's older brother, Koga, appeared and accepted Ash's challenge for a Gym battle. Although the battle was temporarily interrupted by Team Rocket, who were eventually defeated by Misty's Psyduck, in the end, Ash was able to defeat Koga and earn himself a Soul Badge.

Pokémon used in the Gym

 

 
Venonat → Venomoth
When Ash challenged Koga, Koga sent out his Venonat, which Ash originally underestimated since he had previously defeated his sister's Venonat quite easily but then it instantly evolved into a Venomoth, and proceeded to get the upper hand in its Gym battle with Pidgeotto. The battle was interrupted by Team Rocket, and afterwards, Koga offered to trade Venomoth to Misty for her Psyduck, but she declined.

Venomoth's known moves are Stun Spore and Sleep Powder.

The Electric Tale of Pikachu

Although never actually seen, Fuchsia Gym was mentioned in Pikachu's Excellent Adventure. While accompanying Pikachu (whom Ash had accidentally left behind), a group of other Pokémon, and Tommy to the Hidden Village, Team Rocket got trapped in Koga's Ninja Mansion for a while, encountering both Koga and Aya there.

Pokémon Adventures

Gold, Silver & Crystal chapter

Fuchsia Gym was mentioned in Sunkern Treasure, where it was revealed that while Lt. Surge and Sabrina had returned to their respective Gyms after Team Rocket's supposed downfall, the Gym Leaders of the Viridian and Fuchsia Gyms were currently missing, meaning that those two Gyms were currently empty. In Crossing Crobat, it was revealed that Koga's daughter, Janine, had taken over her father's Gym, although she frequently leaves it in search for both her father and a master for herself.

Pokémon Pocket Monsters

Fuchsia Gym appeared in Save the Chansey!!, where Red, Clefairy, and Pikachu sneaked into the Gym in order to save a group of Chansey that were being tortured by Koga. When Koga found out about the intruders, he had his Koffing and Grimer attack them, but they were beaten by Clefairy, and the Chansey were saved.
