Pokemon Sword and Shield Gym Leaders Guide
Every Pokemon game typically has 8 Gym Leaders after which you can battle the Elite Four and finally your Rival often the NPC you battle along your journey through the game’s storyline. Your starter pokemon can affect what the first couple of gyms difficulty will be, for example, if I choose Bulbasaur and my first two gym types are Rock and then Water. This will make the start of the game fairly easy for me as my main pokemon is strong against those Elemental Types.
