The Gym Leaders wiki last edited by NightFang on 04/15/14 06:14AM View full history

The main job of a Gym Leader is to test trainers and their Pokemon to see if they are ready to challenge the Elite Four. When a trainer defeats a Gym Leader they earn a Badge; winning 8 Badges allows for a trainer to compete in a regional tournament. Contrary to what people believe, Frontier Brains are not Gym Leaders.
