In the Unova region, there are eight gyms in eight different cities. To enter the Unova Pokémon League, you must beat the Gym Leaders of these gyms. What makes the Gyms in Unova so unique as compared to the gyms in the previous generation games is that each of these Gyms looks different from one-another on the outside.
Black and White (Striaton City)
This is the official gym of Striaton City and the first gym of the region. This gym is unique from all other first gyms because it doubles as a restaurant.
