All the Pokémon Scarlet and Violet gym leaders we’ve seen so far

While the new Pokémon game is breaking a handful of the series formulas, there are some things returning, like the new Pokémon Scarlet and Violet gym leaders

Grusha, a Pokémon Scarlet and Violet gym leader with long blue hair, a red and blue scarf covering the bottom of their face, yellow winter coat, blue trousers, and fluffy blue boots. The Pokémon Cetitan is next to them, a white and grey orb with three spikes on top, a long spiky tail, and stubby arms and legs.

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet are the first open-world mainline Pokémon games. Sure, we sort of got that with Pokémon Legends: Arceus, but that’s a different sort of game to what players expect. While the next instalment may be a tad different, it’s still definitely a mainline Pokémon.

So, one thing we can be sure of is gyms, and with gyms come Pokémon Scarlet and Violet’s gym leaders. There’s only one confirmed gym leader so far, an ice-type specialist called Grusha, but there’s bound to be more revealed in the future, so be sure to check back here down the line for all the latest details.

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet gym leaders

Below, you can find a list of all the currently announced Pokémon Scarlet and Violet gym leaders.

Grusha, a Pokémon Scarlet and Violet gym leader with long blue hair, a red and blue scarf covering the bottom of their face, yellow winter coat, blue trousers, and fluffy blue boots. They are on a blurred background of greenery and foliage.

Grusha

The first gym leader we learned about, Grusha, used to be a professional snowboarder, but now he’s the Glaseado gym’s leader. With Cetitan as his partner, he’s also an Ice-type specialist who’s usually pretty chill. Still, when battles get heated, he can reveal some things about himself he’d usually keep hidden.

Another gym leader is Brassius, a hard-looking dude with the cutest little Smoliv for company. He’s a grass-type specialist, with his whip looking like a nasty, thorny vine.

Geeta is the Pokémon League Chariwoman. She’s tall, with long black hair and blue gloves. Snazzy. Who knows what role she takes in the game, but I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s a battle down the line.
