1. Choosing your Super Secret Base locations.
You can’t set-up a Pokemon Gym without selecting your Super Secret Base location. There are dozens upon dozens of Super Secret Base location scattered through out Hoenn. As for where you should set-up base, there isn’t a right or wrong answer. Select the location based on convenience, aesthetics and your preference. I would highly recommend using Serebii’s guide on the Super Secret Base Locations.
2. Decorating your Secret Base Gym
Once you have selected your secret base location you can decorate your gym with a number of decals, furniture and other jiggles. You are free to decorate the Super Secret Base in any manner that pleases you. However, if you want to create an authentic Pokemon Gym, then I would advise using the following items to decorate your Secret Base Gym.
- Stand – Can be purchased at Lilycove Department Store.
- Gym Statue – Can be purchased at the Fortree City Secret Base Shop.
- Square-One mat – Can be purchased at the Fortree City Secret Base Shop. (Must be Silver rank)
- Red, Blue or Yellow Spin Panel – Can be purchased at the Fortree City Secret Base Shop (available at various ranks)
- Red, Blue or Yellow Warp Panel – Can be purchased at the Fortree City Secret Base Shop (available at various ranks)
Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire features a robust number of items to use for you Super Secret Base. In fact, you can make a Gym of substance with the tools given to you. How the final product turns out depends on your creativity and the effort put in. So put in your decorating hat on and make the best Gym possible.
3. Setting up the NPC trainers
To set up NPC trainers around your Gym, you will need to befriend Secret Pals. Secret Pals can be befriended from Street Pass hits or you can scan QR codes from Pokemon Global Link . Once you have the desired amount of Secret Pals, you can position them around your secret base as NPC trainers for your Gym.
4. Setting up your Team and battle rules.
Have all the Pokemon you want in the Gym team in your party. Unfortunately, you may need to make some compromises as you will need a Pokemon with Secret Power in one of those slots and if your Secret Base is accessed by a HM you may need to accommodate that.
When you are happy with the appearance of your Gym and team, there is one last thing to do and that is setting up the proclamation. Proclamation is a decoration that is available from the beginning which allows you to set-up what battle type for your gym challenge (Singles, Doubles, Triples, and Rotation). Select your desired battle type, but I would select Single or Doubles as these are the most popular and what most people train their team for.
5. Saving your
Once the proclamation is up, your gym is ready to go for others to challenge. Save and share the QR code in order for others to take on your own Gym.
That’s it! These are the basic principles on how to make your very own Super Secret Base Gym leader in Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.
