As in other regions, the Kanto region holds a number of Gyms located throughout the area. In the Generation I games and their remakes there are a total of eight Gyms. In the Pokémon Anime, the main character Ash, battled at eight Gyms as well. However, as seen with several characters' Badges, there were other unidentified Gyms that were not shown.

The Fuchsia City gym is in Fuchsia City. The leader varies in the games. In Red/Blue/Yellow, Koga is the leader, but in HeartGold and SoulSilver, Janine, Koga's daughter, is the leader. Both focus on the Poison-type. Like the other gyms, this uses a special tactic against the player. The gym leader uses a series of invisible walls to confuse new trainers. In some games, the outlines of the walls  can be seen and avoided.
