Jump to: navigation, search

Gym Badges (バッジ Gym Badges) are collected throughout all the regions in all of the main series Pokémon games and also in the Pokémon Anime. Badges are obtained usually by defeating the holder of the badge in a Pokémon battle, a Gym Leader. In the game series, there are a total of 8 badges per region (game). However, in the anime it has been noted that there are many other Gyms where badges can be obtained. In order to compete in the Pokémon League, Pokémon Trainers must collect a total of 8 Gym Badges in their respective region.

Some Gym Badges have the ability to affect a Pokémon's behavior, making them obedient up to certain levels, though this is only in Generations previous to IV. Also, certain badges will allow for a specified HM to be used outside of battle. Additionally, in the Generation IV and Generation V games, having more badges affects the amount of items that Poké Marts will have.

In Generation VII, the Alola region does not have gyms, and therefore there are no gym badges: it can be argued that Z-Crystals take their place.

Also, the badges themselves are no longer the factor in the obedience of Pokémon, rather it is the amount of badges the player owns. Additionally, the amount of badges also affects the available items at Poké Marts.

Obedience of Pokémon:

  • 2 Badges - Obedient up to level 30
  • 4 Badges - Obedient up to level 50
  • 6 Badges - Obedient up to level 70
  • 8 Badges - All Pokémon are obedient.

A new addition to the Generation IV games, players can shine the badges that they have earned, and show them off in the union room. However, if the badges are neglected they will become dull and dusty.
