The Great Gavel organization (Japanese: グレートガベル ) is a villainous group in the Pokémon RéBURST manga.
The Great Gavel organization first appears in Madoro Town where the grunts can be seen terrorizing the citizens, destroying the town, and stealing their Pokémon. Ryouga sneaks into the town and battles some of the grunts, defeating them until he is attacked by their commander, Yaza. Ryouga, after being rescued by Miruto, goes back to fight Yaza after he captures a little girl and defeats him with his new Burst abilities.
Next, a group of grunts that were attempting to flee from the organization were pursued and captured by one of the Seven Warriors, Major Hilgreitz. He is seen with an unknown member who tells him about Ryouga; the report gives Hilgreitz an interest in challenging him. Hilgreitz is defeated, and Ryouga is challenged by the other of the Seven Warriors in succession.
Much later, the members of Great Gavel appears at the Burst Warrior tournament Burst Heart Survival alongside their leader Fraud and his Strategic Advisor Gerubu, with the prize money meant for the winner. After the final match between Fraud and Ryouga ends in a tie, the Great Gavel members flee, taking their unconscious master with them.
Sometime later, they lead an operation to capture the legendary Pokémon, Cobalion, Virizion, and Terrakion. They succeed, and the three are turned into Burst Hearts and given to the Three Generals as Bursts. After obtaining what he wanted, Fraud does away with Gerubu and disbands Great Gavel in favor of achieving his own goal. However, he is defeated once and for all by Ryouga.
The members of Great Gavel are usually seen using actual weapons such as laser guns rather than Pokémon to terrorize the populace of wherever they attack. Those that have actual been seen using Pokémon have used them solely for the Burst technique.
Higher leveled members such as Commander Yaza have been seen using more powerful weapons such as an ararebo that uses the life force of Fire-type Pokémon so that it can be set on fire, making it more powerful than usual. These weapons are by-products created from research that the organization had done.
The organization has a group of people known as the Seven Warriors (Japanese: 七戦騎). The Seven Warriors are seven powerful Burst Warriors and high-ranking members of Great Gavel. As of The Three Assassins, two members have been defeated, and five have been considered traitors to Great Gavel.
The Three Generals (Japanese: 三闘将) are three high-ranking members of Great Gavel, even higher than the Seven Warriors. Each are Burst Warriors equipped with the Bursts of the Swords of Justice, Cobalion, Virizion, and Terrakion.
