Crasher Wake's Gym in Pastoria

Useful Pokemon to have in gym 5 are ones which have Grass type moves. They are effective against Quagsire and Pokemon, which have Electric type attacks like Luxray to use against Gyarados and Floatzel who are weak against that type of attack.

Gardenia's Gym in Eterna

To reach Gardenia in gym 2 you must first deafeat the other trainers to make the middle blades unlock and move around. Pokemon have Flying type attacks, Fire and Poison are useful and if you don't have Chimchar you must have Noctowl or Stavia to have any chance of beating this gym.

Roark's Gym in Oreburgh

Pokemon with Water, Grass and Fighting moves will be useful in gym 1 as Roarak's Pokemon are weak against Pokemon with those type of moves. Be careful of Cranidos as it has a high attack but a weak defense, a good Pokemon to have against it is Machop who can defeat it easily.

Volkner's Gym in Sunyshore

In gym 8 Pokemon that know Magnatiude or Earthquake will be useful as all of Volkner's Pokemon are weak to Ground type moves. Be careful of Electivire who is quite powerful and knows several types of moves.

Byron's Gym in Canalave

A high leveled Pokemon which has Fire and Ground attack moves is useful in gym 6 as all three of Byron's Pokemon are weak against those type of attacks. Fighting moves are effective against Magneton and a Pokemon that knows Surf will be able to bowl over Bastioden and Steelix.

Maylene's Gym in Veilstone

To beat gym 4 you have to move the red punching bags around to get rid of the tires. Noctowl, Staravia, Kirlia and Kadabra are all good Pokemon to have in this gym.

Fantina's Gym in Hearthrome

To beat gym 3 you must first reach Fantina by navigating the two dark maze like rooms using a flashlight.
