Sunyshore Pokémon Gym
The Sunyshore Gym is the eighth and final Gym in Sinnoh. The whole gym is made of massive gears, and there are switches on some gears which can turn the gears. Different colors of the switches rotate the gears a different amount of times and in a different direction. Green colored switches make the gears rotate once in a counter clockwise direction. Blue colored switches make the gears rotate once in a clockwise direction. Red colored switches make the gears rotate twice in a clockwise direction. There is however one trainer in the gym disguised as a Pikachu.
Young Volkner was a lot like Ash in personality. Also, like Ash, he probably got a Pikachu instead of the three usual starters for his first Pokémon and had a rival that later became his friend, Flint. These things are shown in flashbacks.
Volkner was first referred to by Tower Tycoon Palmer, saying that, after seeing his battling skills, Ash would be able to give Volkner "a shock." Though Volkner's Pikachu was defeated, soon after Volkner had a re-match with him and defeated his Chimchar. Daily they would test their strength.
While they became rivals, one day they encountered a poacher. While they chased him away, they got hurt pretty badly, but did not lose their confidence and became friends. When they split up, Volkner became a Gym Leader and Flint a member of Elite Four. It is when Volkner started to lose interest in battles and turned on building solar panels across town; and it is when he just started giving badges without a battle.
