The Pokémon Company launched the latest 9th generation Pokémon game which is Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. Like other Pokémon games, Scarlet and Violet also feature gym leaders, whom the players need to fight and win. Katy, the bug-type gym leader of Cortondo is going to be the first gym leader to face as a part of the walkthrough. Additionally, before battling with Katy, players must also complete the Cortondo gym test. In this article, we will provide you with a detailed guide about the Cortondo gym, its rewards, and also gym tests.

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet Cortondo gym test: Olive Roll Challenge

Before fighting with the gym leader, players must complete the gym test, Olive Roll Challenge. In the gym test, you have to roll the olive ball starting from one end of the field to the end goal on the other side of the field. The goal is located on the other end of the field so you have to get through the fences and obstacles to clear the gym test.

Gym test steps

  • First talk to the Gym staff about the challenge to start.
  • Then, you have to go out of the gym and head to the northwest and look for the field covered with fences.
  • Speak to the staff to begin the challenge. The staff will explain all the necessary details about the gym test.
  • Then start your challenge of rolling the giant olive egg to the other end of the field dodging the fences to the endpoint of the field.

Tips to complete the Olive Roll challenge

1. Rolling the olive egg through ramps

You can push the egg across the ramps to get to your goal faster. It will save you more time. You are free to unfollow the original route which is extremely time-saving.

2. Battle trainers to get shortcuts

There will be trainers waiting near the shortcut routes. If you want to choose the shortcut routes, then you have to defeat them. It is up to you whether you will battle or not. If you think, your team needs more training you can opt for the battle and earn experience points or else go for the longer route.

After successfully finishing the gym test, players will move to fight the gym leader.
