Pokemon Scarlet And Violet Gym Leader Levels

Before you start tackling Gym Leaders to complete your Victory Road path, you must be aware of the Gym Leaders’ levels. When we talk about Gym Leader’s level, what we really mean is the Level of the Pokemon they use for combat. As Pokemon Scarlet and Violet don’t offer Level-scaling, it means your opponents’ levels remain the same throughout your adventure. 

Therefore, Gym Leaders’ Level awareness would ensure you conquer all the Gyms in a proper order without feeling too overpowered or under-leveled in certain situations. Let’s look at the level of all 8 Gym Leaders in the game and the Pokemon in their possession. We have arranged the Gym Leaders list from the lowest to the highest levels.

1. Gym Leader Katy (Level 14 – 15)

The Gym Leader you encounter in Cortondo, Katy, is hardly a challenge for players. She uses Bug-type Pokemon with levels 14 and 15 and, thus, should be the first opponent on your list. The best types of Pokemon to counter Katy are Fire-, Flying-, and Rock.

Her Pokemon kit, their types, and respective levels are given below.

Katy’s PokemonTypeLevelRecommended Pokemon
NymphBug14Fuecoco (Lvl 15)
TarountulaBug14Fletchinder (Lvl 15)

2. Gym Leader Brassius (Level 16 – 17)

The 2nd Gym Leader you should take on is Brassius, residing in Artazon. He makes use of Grass-type Pokemons lying between 16 and 17 levels. Brassius is also a pretty breezy challenge to take on early game, and you will easily find victory in the battle against him. You can use a variety of Pokemon to fight him, including Fire-, Bug-, Flying-, and Ice-type.

Take a look at his Pokemon, their details, and the recommended kit you need to beat them:

3. Gym Leader Iono (Level 23 – 24)

Iono is where the challenge in the games really starts to pick up, but this is exactly the right time to take her on if you want a decent challenge (and don’t want to fail miserably in battle). She lives in Levincia and uses Electric-type Pokemon with Level ranges of 23 – 24. You should use Ground-type Pokemon to counter her Electric-types. Rock- and Ice-types can also work here.

4. Gym Leader Kofu (Level 29 – 30)

If you’re following our guide, your next stop should be Cascarrafa to fight the Gym Leader there, named Kofu. With the Water-type Pokemon having 29 to 30 levels, Kofu puts up a massive challenge for unprepared Trainers. However, you can exploit his weakness to Grass- and Electric-type Pokemon to make your life easy.

We recommend doing your homework by learning about his Pokemon types and levels beforehand:

Kofu’s PokemonTypeLevelRecommended Pokemon
VeluzaWater / Psychic29Sprigatito (Lvl 30)
WugtrioWater29Dolliv (Lvl 30)
CrabominableWater (Tera type)30Tadbulb (Lvl 30)

5. Gym Leader Larry (Level 35 – 36)

Up next on our list is the Gym Leader Larry, a Normal-type Pokemon aficionado from Medali. If you have been leveling up properly by this point and know how to counter Normal-type Pokemon, Larry will be a piece of cake for you, despite his 35 – 36 leveled Pokemon. Normal Type Pokemon are usually weaker to Fighting Type moves, so that’s your best bet against him.

Check out the list of Pokemon he uses and their traits below. Make sure to bring in certain Pokemon to counter Larry’s kit:

Larry’s PokemonTypeLevelRecommended Pokemon
KomalaNormal35Quaquaval (Lvl 36)
DudunsparceNormal35Pawmo (Lvl 36)
StaraptorNormal (Tera type)36Primeape (Lvl 36)

7. Gym Leader Tulip (Level 44 – 45)

The second-last Gym Leader you should consider encountering is a charming resident of the town of Alfornada, Tulip. She uses solid Psychic-type Pokemon, which are leveled up to 44 and 45. However, you can eventually come victorious by using Bug-, Dark-, and Ghost-type Pokemon, which serve as her weakness.

8. Gym Leader Grusha (Level 47 – 48)

The last and the strongest Gym Leader, Grusha, resides on the top of Glaseado Mountain. Reaching the top of the mountain is one thing, but overcoming Grusha is an entirely different challenge. He makes use of Ice-type Pokemon with Levels 47 and 48, which will be a fair challenge to beat but not as difficult as it would’ve been if you took him on early-game. 

Make sure you’re accustomed to his Pokemon kit and prepared to tackle any smart moves he’s going to throw your way. Your best options in this last Gym battle would be to take Fire-, Fighting-, and Steel-type Pokemon in your kit.

BearticIce47Medicham (Lvl 48)
CetitanIce47Glimmora (Lvl 48)
