Ryuki, the Kantonian Gym Leader in the anime

At the end of Drawn with the Wind!, Charlie Charma, who had been the tour guide for Ash and his classmates during their visit to Malie City, revealed he was a Trainer at the Kantonian Gym, and invited them to visit after resting for the night. In Aiming for the Top Floor!, Charlie led Ash and his classmates to the Gym, where they met Farley, Darley, and Shirataki, who were collectively shocked to learn from Ash that not all Kanto Gyms were like the ninja-style obstacle course they had set up.

At the top of the Gym tower, Kiawe and Ash fought the Leader of the Kantonian Gym, Ryuki. While Kiawe and Marowak were unsuccessful, Ash was able to defeat Ryuki's Zweilous and Druddigon in a Double Battle with Rowlet and Meltan. In the end, Ash was rewarded with a novelty Badge with Ryuki's face on it.


  • Excluding the Leader, the Kantonian Gym Trainers all walk up to the player upon spotting them, a reference to how Trainers would walk up to the player to battle them prior to Generation VII. The Kantonian Gym Trainers refer to this walking style as the "Gym Walk".
