Galar Gym Leaders – Information & Battling Guide

0

Generation VIII is the latest offering from Pokemon and it takes place in the Galar Region. This means that you have to plow through a plethora of Galar Gym Leaders. It’s interesting here because depending on which game you play, Sword or Shield, there will be two different Leaders for each game.

Don’t worry, because we will tackle all of them with regards to what Pokemon they have and every single detail. One other thing is that the game has Gigantamax and Dynamax which the Leaders will use it on one of their Pokemon. We’ll tell you which one it is and everything else in between.

In Closing

Now that you have an idea of what the Unova Gym Leaders can do, you have time to make a strategy and even grind the Pokemon that you need. The different Gym Leaders depending on the game can be also something that you might think about in case you want to buy the game.

The Gigantamax aspect does add a layer of fun and intrigue but now that you know what to do, you can browse through these battles easily. Don’t ignore the music as well because the Gym Leader’s battle theme is so hyped if you like that kind of thing.
