Pokémon X Y Gym Leader Walkthrough – Anistar City

Pokémon X Y Gym Leader Walkthrough – Anistar City

Hello and welcome to our Pokémon X&Y Gym Guide! Every Friday we will be guiding you through one of the eight Kalos Region Gyms in Pokémon X and Y, showing you everything you need to know to beat them and get your badges. We will show you how to find the gyms, what Pokémon they have and how you can defeat them, and even where to head next!

This week, we are looking at the seventh Gym in Anistar City with Gym Leader Olympia. If you are reading this guide, you should have already beaten  X & Y’s first six gym leaders, Viola, Grant, Korrina, Ramos, Clemont and Valerie. If not, check out our earlier Pokémon X&Y Gym Guides for hints, tricks and tips on how to ace your way to the top and perfect your team, before coming back here to take on the leader of the Anistar City Gym, Olympia!

Anistar City Gym

Gym Type

This Gym is a Psychic type gym. A favourite type with many trainers, Psychic Pokémon are only weak to three types: Bug, Ghost and Dark Pokémon. Pokémon that are weak against Psychic types are Fighting and Poison types, so make sure to keep these Pokémon out of the arena or they will probably get knocked out fairly quickly from a psybeam attack. Psychic types are also immune to Fighting and Psychic attacks, so if you have any dual type Pokémon don’t waste their fighting and psychic moves on this bunch.

How to find the Gym

After adventuring through the Frost Cavern and catching your fill of wild Pokémon there, you must travel through Route 17 to get to Anistar City. Anistar city is a small town located in mountain Kalos, and after exploring the town and taking a look at the awesome ancient sundial to the west, it’s time to head to the Anistar City Gym to the east side of town. Before you can enter, your Rival appears challenging you to a battle, so you may want to heal up at a Pokémon centre afterwards.

This Gym itself is pretty crazy looking, as it takes the form of a giant 3D floating maze in a galaxy far away. This means you get to look at some awesome images of stars, planets and galaxies as you make your way through it.


However, when you first step inside the gym, it looks pretty normal. Don’t be fooled though, because as soon as you step onto the symbol on the carpet in the centre of the gym you are magically transported to the crazy cosmic maze. While the previous few gyms have been pretty tricky to navigate this maze is actually super easy. It is basically just a one way path with the only few wrong turns quickly ending in a dead-end or leading you to a trainer, so you won’t waste much time by getting lost. The aim of the maze is to travel down the path until you find a yellow warp tile, similar to the ones in Valerie’s gym. By stepping on these tiles you will be transported to another part of the maze. If you still need some help to get through in the quickest way possible, don’t worry we have you covered if you follow our simple steps below.


Tip: Once you enter this gym’s alternate reality, it can be a bit tough to get back through the maze, so we suggest stocking up on lots of potions and healing items for your Pokemon before taking the plunge.

Trainers in the Gym

Psychic Paschal

You will first be given two paths to choose from: one going south and one leading up north. Don’t take the path that goes south as this leads to a dead-end. Instead, head north. A trainer will be waiting for you here, so you cannot avoid this battle.

His Pokémon are:


Exeggutor (level. 46)

Type: Psychic and Grass

Ability: Chlorophyll

Moves: Wood Hammer, Stomp, Psyshock, Egg Bomb

Money for Winning: P2,576


Psychic Harry

After defeating Psychic Paschal, continue north up to the end of this path where a yellow warp tile will be waiting. Step on the tile to be transported to the next path. Keep on heading straight and stepping on any warp tiles you come across, as any other paths off to the right will lead to dead-ends. This will eventually lead you to the next trainer, Psychic Harry.

His Pokémon are:


Medicham (level. 46)

Type: Psychic and Fighting

Ability: Pure Power

Moves: Acupressure, Psych Up, High Jump Kick, Force Palm

Money for Winning: P2,576


Psychic Arthur

After defeating Psychic Harry, head south to the end of the path. There will be two paths ahead, so make sure to take the path that leads east or left as there is another yellow warp tile down this route. Follow this new path straight up north to the next yellow tile, and head straight north again to reach the next trainer, Psychic Arthur.

His Pokémon are:


Reuniclus (level. 46)

Type: Psychic

Ability: Magic Guard

Moves: Pain Split, Psychic, Dizzy Punch, Skill Swap

Money for Winning: P2,576


Hex Maniac Arachna

Continue right to the end of the path you are on where the next warp tile is waiting to transport you yet again to a new area. From here, the path directly north leads to another trainer, however there is no yellow warp tile down this way, so you can skip this trainer altogether if you want by instead choosing the path heading left.

Her Pokémon are:


Jynx (Level. 46)

Type: Psychic and Ice

Ability: Oblivious

Moves: Wake-Up Slap, Fake Tears, Avalanche, Body Slam

Money for Winning: P1,472


Hex Maniac Melanie

If you challenged Hex Maniac Arachna, you need to head back down the path you came and instead take the path to the left or west to the warp tile. This will lead you to yet another path, however never fear as you are nearing the end of this maze. Keep heading west to reach the final Pokémon trainer you must face before taking on gym leader Olympia.

Her Pokémon are:


Gardevoir (Level. 46)

Type: Psychic and Fairy

Ability: Trace

Moves: Imprison, Calm Mind, Psychic

Money for Winning: P1,472


Leader Olympia


Continue going west until the end of the path, where you will find the very last warp tile. Step on it to be transported to the final path, and head straight up north to reach Olympia. Olympia has crazy purple floating hair and a really cool galaxy themed outfit. Just talk to her to begin the battle.

Olympia’s Pokémon are:


Sigilyph (Level. 44)

Type: Pyschic and Flying

Ability: Magic Guard

Item: None

Moves: Light Screen, Reflect, Psychic, Air Slash


Slowking (Level. 45)

Type: Psychic and Water

Ability: Oblivious

Item: None

Moves: Power Gem, Yawn, Calm Mind, Psychic


Meowstic (Level. 48)

Type: Psychic

Ability: Infiltrator

Item: None

Moves: Psychic, Calm Mind, Fake Out, Shadow Ball


How to defeat Olympia

This particular Gym Battle should be a little bit easier than the last few. We suggest not only filling your team with Bug, Ghost, and Dark type Pokémon who will deal double damage against Psychic types, but also to pack a punch with an Electric type Pokémon, as two of Olympia’s Pokémon have dual types that are weak to Electric attacks. If you followed our tips in our 10 Best Pokémon to catch in Pokémon X and Y guide, you will have no problem with this gym as you should have at least one of each of these types caught already.


As Dark type Pokémon are immune to Psychic attacks, you might be tempted to fill your party with these awesome fighters, however there are some dual Fighting types in this gym that will do super damage to Dark types so we suggest trying to get one of each of the recommended types in your team. If you chose Froakie as your starter Pokémon as we suggested in our 10 Best Pokémon to catch in Pokémon X and Y guide, this trusty bubble frog Pokémon should have evolved into its final form Greninja by now: a dual Water and Dark type Pokémon, and will be a perfect addition to your team. We also suggest adding a Pikachu, as Pikachu can use the awesome Thunderbolt attack that will quickly defeat both Sigilyph and Slowking due to their dual Flying and Water types. Find out where you can add one to your team by following the link to our guide above!


Finally, adding a Bug or Ghost Pokémon to your line-up will help you balance your team. We suggest either a Haunter or Aegislash, as both these Pokémon have some great Ghost attacks. Haunter can be caught on Route 14, and if you want to catch Aegislash check out our 10 Best Pokémon to catch in Pokémon X and Y guide again.


With these Pokémon on your team you should have no trouble besting this Psychic gym.

Tip: Olympia’s Slowking knows the move Yawn, so it would be helpful to bring along a Pokémon that has the Insomnia ability, like Murkrow, or if you don’t have one of these on your team, why not give your Pokémon a Chesto Berry to hold, which will stop them drifting off.



After defeating Olympia, she will give you the Psychic Badge which allows all Pokémon up to Level 90 to obey you without question, even those Pokémon that you got in trades. She also gives you TM04 Calm Mind. Calm Mind is a move that builds the Pokémon’s special attack and special defence stats up one each time it is used. You will also get P7,680.


Where to go next

When you have finished talking to Olympia she will ask you if you want to be warped to the entrance, which you should say yes to if you don’t want to have to take the long way back out. Once outside, you’ll notice a Team Flare Grunt standing nearby. Your rival quickly appears to ask you for a rematch, but you receive a threatening Holo Clip from the leader of Team Flare, where you discover that they are up to no good again. Your rival says you should look for the Team Flare hideout and suggests going back to where you met the Team Flare leader in Lumiose City, which means that its time to head back to Lumiose City yet again, this time to the Lysandre Cafe. Before you fly back there, make sure to talk to the Team Flare Grunts next to the gym to get all the clues you can about what their boss is up to and where to look for him. Prepare yourself for a long journey from badge seven to badge eight as you have to face off with Team Flare in a big fight before you can take on the final gym leader.


Congratulations on getting this far as you are now almost done with the main part of the game! Don’t forget to come back here to Anistar City when you’ve become Kalos champion, as the Sun Dial in the west holds some interesting secrets about Mega Evolution, Mega Stones and Mega Rings.
