Pokémon Scarlet and Violet Medali Gym guide: List of Pokémon, how to beat Larry, and rewards

Beat the normal type leader

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. Larry, the normal-type gym leader of Medali is going to be the fifth gym leader to face as a part of the walkthrough. Additionally, before battling with Larry, players must also complete the Medali gym test. In this article, we will provide you with a detailed guide about the Medali gym in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, its rewards, and also gym tests.

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet gym test: Order the secret menu item

In the gym test, you will be in the Treasure Eatery. You have to order the special dish from here. But you have no idea about the special dish. So, you have to battle with trainers to get clues about the dish. After defeating them, they will hand over the clues about the dish around Medali. After you get it, head back to the Treasure Eatery again and order the secret dish.

Gym test steps

  • Speak to the Gym Staff to get your clue. You have to order the special dish in the Treasure Eatery restaurant. A total of four orders are there and you have to get clues about the special dish.
  • To get the clues, you have to battle with the trainers. After defeating them, they will provide you with clues about the secret dish.
  • Continue to gather clues about the secret dish by defeating the trainers around Medali.
  • After getting the clues, head back to the Treasure Eatery restaurant and order the special dish. Your challenge will be completed.

3. Skip Looking for Clues

If you don’t want to battle with the trainers, you can go to the restaurant and face the gym leader by ordering the special dish correctly. But in this process, you will not be earning the money and experience points you get from the battle with the trainers.
