Versus Fighting-type Pokemon

The skaters follow a set path, so observe, then give chase with your own Roller Skates!

Here we are at the third gym! Look keen! This is a Fighting-type gym, so the types listed above are good or bad, depending on which ones you’re looking at. The gym itself is a roller skating arena. Move up to the rail, then got on your roller skates and charge at it. You’ll jump on and slide to the other side.

As roller skaters move past they’ll challenge you. Each has their own set path and you need to defeat them all before you can challenge the leader, as pieces of a bridge slowly move into place with each trainer beaten. The member that will move by the point where you entered the arena is as follows:

Gym Member Battle: Roller Skater Kate

Pokémon Level Type
"Meditite" IconMeditite 28 Fighting/Psychic
"Mienfoo" IconMienfoo 28 Fighting

The one moving around the three cones to your west is keen for some battles too.

Gym Member Battle: Roller Skater Shun

Pokémon Level Type
"Pancham" IconPancham 27 Fighting
"Throh" IconThroh 27 Fighting
"Machoke" IconMachoke 27 Fighting

There’s another person to the north, doing a sort of figure eight. Get in her way and she’ll take you on.

Gym Member Battle: Roller Skater Rolanda

Pokémon Level Type
"Sawk" IconSawk 27 Fighting
"Hariyama" IconHariyama 29 Fighting

Head to the south-west area of the arena to find the last of the gym members. Here we go!

Gym Member Battle: Roller Skater Dash

Pokémon Level Type
"Heracross" IconHeracross 30 Bug/Fighting

After defeating the fourth and final gym member, you’ll be able to reach Korrina in the centre of the gym. Ride the rail there, although you might want to head back to the Pokémon Center and heal and stock up on items. Once you’re ready to go, speak with her!

Gym Leader Battle! Leader Korrina

There's more to Korrina than meets the eye…

Pokémon Level Type
"Mienfoo" IconMienfoo 29 Fighting
"Machoke" IconMachoke 28 Fighting
"Hawlucha" IconHawlucha 32 Fighting/Flying

"Sigilyph" IconSigilyph is the perfect Pokemon to bring with its Psychic and Flying type moves.

"Mienfoo" IconMienfoo and "Machoke" IconMachoke are a simple affair, being pure Fighting-types, so just refer to the type list to see where you stand. "Hawlucha" IconHawlucha is slightly more complicated, since it’s a Flying-type too, but it barely makes a difference for your Psychic, Flying or Fairy-type Pokemon.

After defeating Leader Korrina, you’ll receive the Rumble Badge . This means that any Pokemon up to Level 50 that you received in a trade will obey. Do a little dance! You’ll also be able to use Surf outside of battle. As well as that you’ll get give TM98 - Power-Up Punch for your efforts.

Back to the Tower of Mastery

Now that you’re all done; she’ll ask you to battle her for a third freaking time, back in the Tower of Mastery. Put your skates back on and take the south rail out of the area. You’ll wind up back at the start of the gym. Head outside, heal your Pokemon then head to the top of the Tower of Mastery.

Make sure you stop by the third room on the way up and talk to the guy with purple hair. He’ll give you TM47 - Low Sweep . Once you’re at the top of the tower, talk with Korrina and she’ll give you a Mega Ring . Now you can mega evolve. OH YEAH! Turns out Korrina’s "Lucario" IconLucario also wants to fight for you, so let’s try it out! Let the battle begin!

Trainer Battle: Successor Korrina

Korrina's "Lucario" IconLucario comes with Lucarionite, meaning it's ready to Mega Evolve from the bat!

Pokémon Level Type
"Lucario" IconLucario 32 Fighting/Steel

Easy Win! When the battle begins; enter the Fight screen and click the Mega Evolution button. From there, choose your move and attack! Just use Power-Up Punch twice now and you should win. Easy; but it was only meant to be a tutorial. If you lose, no sweat; it’s not a real battle.

After that epic battle, you’ll be asked by Korrina if you wish to take the "Lucario" IconLucario you just fought with, with you. Obviously say yes! After that you’ll be done talking, so head back outside. It’s time to head out of Shalour City. Take the east exit, to Route 12!
