Pokémon Scarlet and Violet Levincia Gym, including how to beat Electric Gym Leader Iono and Mr Walksabout locations

How to defeat the Levincia Electric Gym Leader.

You have to battle Iono, the Electric-type Gym Leader of Levincia, during Victory Road in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.

Before you battle her in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, however, you must complete the Levincia Gym Test by locating Mr Walksabouts three times (AKA Director Clavell).

Below, we cover how to reach Levincia, where to find Mr Walksabouts and how to beat Electric Gym Leader Iono, so you can add another Gym Badge to your collection.

How to reach Levincia in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

If you've not unlocked any Pokémon Centers near the town yet, the easiest way to reach Levincia in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet is to travel the main path east of Zapapico, then up to the northern coast where Levincia resides.

You'll have to either clear the Team Star Fire Crew base or unlock an ability for Koraidon or Miraidon to make your way to Levincia, however.

If you’re getting lost, remember to set Levincia as the destination on your map to ensure it appears as a waypoint on your mini-map.

Where to find Mr Walksabouts in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet for Levincia Gym test

For the Levincia Gym test, you have to find Mr Walksabouts (AKA Director Clavell) three times by searching for him with the help of cameras. You'll also have to fight a trainer after locating each Mr Walksabout position, so make sure all your Pokémon are healed and ready to battle!

Here's where to find Mr Walksabout for the Levincia Gym test:

Mr Walksabout location 1 in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

You'll find Director Clavell sitting by the round table with a parasol, to the right. Move the cursor over to his position and press 'A' to officially find him and start the first trainer battle.

Here's how to beat Trainer Marti:

Pokémon LevelTypeWeaknesses

You'll get 3,080 prize money for defeating Marti, and can move on to the next Mr Walksabout Hide-and-Seek challenge.

Mr Walksabout location 2 in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

For the second Mr Walsabout Hide-and-Seek challenge, you'll see a different camera perspective near a Pokémon Center. You'll find Director Clavell inside the center itself.

Here's how to beat Trainer Michael:

Pokémon LevelTypeWeaknesses

You'll get 3,080 prize money for defeating Michael, and can move on to the last Mr Walksabout Hide-and-Seek challenge.

Mr Walksabout location 3 in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

For the last Mr Walksabout Hide-and-Seek challenge, you'll change to yet another camera, this time above the Gym's battle court. It's a little trickier to find Director Clavell here, as the people look smaller, but you can spot him to the right, on a boat.

There won't be a trainer battle after, and now that you've completed the Mr Walksabout challenge you can go back to the Gym and challenge Iono.

Our Pokémon Scarlet and Violet walkthrough can take you though the entire game - including The First Day of School, Victory Road, Starfall Street, Path of Legends and when you're ready, The Way Home and the final boss. Elsewhere, we can help with the Normal Gym test Secret Item menu, version differences, the best Scarlet and Violet starter, EXP farming, shiny Pokémon and learning how to fly, swim, climb and dash. When it comes to individual Pokemon, we can help with Gimmighoul, Ditto, Bellibolt, Pawmot, Scovillain, Frigibax, Sinistea, Brambleghast, Annihilape, Farigiraf, Dudunsparce, Lycanrock forms, Armarouge and Ceruledge.

How to beat Electric Gym Leader Iono in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

Iono - the Levincia Gym Leader - loves Electric-type Pokémon, and her team reflects that.

Electric-type Pokémon are weak to Ground-type Pokémon.

One of the best options to use then is Paldean Wooper or its evolution, Clodsire. Paldean Wooper is a common Pokémon that can be found in southern Paldea near ponds and wetlands, and likes to sleep in mud.

Its evolution, Clodsire, is rarer, but can be found in a few different areas around Paldea, including the south. They're also found near ponds and wetlands.

Remember, like all Gym Leaders, Iono will Terastallize her last Pokémon, so, even though it’s not an Electric-type at first, it will become one.

Iono’s Pokémon team is:

Pokémon LevelTypeWeaknesses
Wattrel23Electric / FlyingBug, Dark, Electric, Grass and Ghost
Bellibolt23ElectricElectric and Grass
Luxio23ElectricElectric and Grass
Terra Type: Electric
Dark and Ghost
Terra Type: Ground

For defeating Iono, you’ll receive 4,320 prize money, TM048 Volt Switch and a Gym Badge - the level limit increase for having Pokémon listen to you and making them easier to catch will depend on where you are in the Victory Road storyline.

Also depending on where you are in Victory Road, you may have a battle with Nemona after beating Iono.

Who will you face next on Victory Road? Will it be Katy, Brassius, Kofu, Larry, Ryme, Tulip or Grusha? Or maybe you’re ready to battle the Elite Four and the Top Champion! If you want to take a break from Gyms, there's always the Path of Legends and Starfall Street stories to tackle as well.
