In Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, the only one who can choose what to do in the game is the player: disband the evil Team Star, complete the Pokedex by catching them all, discover the mysterious new Titan Pokemon, or defeat all of the Pokemon Gyms, become champion, and become the best like no one ever was. However, once the player has done all this, the player can still do a lot in the post-game. One of these is challenging all the Pokemon Gyms in a rematch!

Also, Director Clavell mentions he is willing to overlook that they entered a restricted area as it was necessary. Then, Director Clavell will give the player a Master Ball.

After a few bits of dialogue, Nemona suggests they hold a Pokemon battle contest at the academy to celebrate the player becoming a Champion. Then, Top Champion Geeta will enter the room and say that the Pokemon League would be happy to lend a hand in organizing this contest, then suggest that both the students and the staff should compete for the title of the strongest trainer at the academy as everyone has the potential to be the greatest.

Then, Top Champion Geeta will also mention that she cannot participate unless the player helps her with her work. Select “I’d be happy to help!” on the prompt, and Top Champion Geeta will ask the player to inspect the various Pokemon Gyms in the Paldea region on her behalf and check if they are still fulfilling their duties as beacons of strength and inspiration for all those aiming to achieve the Champion Rank.

She will explain further that the player can do this by bringing their full might as Champion and challenging each Pokemon Gym Leader to test their battle skills Champion Geeta will leave with Penny to do some work.

Ursaring is a Normal-type Pokemon, but, as Gym Leader Katy will Terastallize her Ursaring, it will change into a Bug-type because of its Tera-Type so, which means it now has a weakness to Fire-type, Flying-type, and Rock-type moves (super effective) and resistance to Fighting-type, Grass-type, and Ground-type moves (not very effective).

Conclusion

As Gym Leader Katy’s Pokemon are Level 65 and 66, it is recommended that the player use Pokemon that are Level 67 and above with Flying-type and Fire-type moves to defeat Gym Leader Katy and her Pokemon easily as Flying-type moves will deal super effective damage to Gym Leader Katy’s Lokix, Spidops, Ursaring, and, especially, Heracross, and Fire-type moves will deal super effective damage to her Forretress.

Additionally, the player should watch out for Gym Leader Katy’s Forretress as it has the Sturdy Ability, which allows it to withstand one-hit KOs and survive with 1 HP if attacked with full HP.

As it is 4x weak to Fire-type moves, attacking it with this type of move will likely activate its Ability. Then, on its turn with 1 HP remaining, it will counter with its Stone Edge attack, which, again, is a Rock-type move that can effectively damage Fire-type Pokemon.

After winning the battle, Gym Leader Katy will realize that maybe being too soft on Trainers is not good for both parties, and she will decide to conduct battles in more of her style.

She will then continue that if people complain that the Cortondo Gym is suddenly more difficult, she will tell them that not all pastries are sweet.

After defeating Gym Leader Katy in the rematch, the player can continue challenging other Gym Leaders!
