Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Gym order + What to expect - Cover

Are you only starting your journey as a Trainer in Pokemon: Scarlet and Violet? Since it is the first time a Pokemon game has featured an open-world map, it’s understandable for some players to feel overwhelmed by what they should do. One of the things you can do in Pokemon: Scarlet and Violet is to participate in gym fights in any order but what exactly should Trainers expect in these encounters? Stay with us to learn more!

Recommended Gym order in Pokemon: Scarlet and Violet

Unlike the previous Pokemon titles, you are free to go to any Gym you have access to in Scarlet and Violet. Although there is no particular order for you to take them on, you should be careful not to get too ahead of yourself by taking on difficult Gyms. To put it simply, there is no level capping or scaling in the game, so you may be easily overpowered if you and your Pokemon don’t have any experience yet.
