Your next challenge will be none other than the poison gym leader, Alice King. Not only is she the 8th gym leader, but she is also a psychologist and therapist for both humans and pokemon! While some of her practices are rumored to be questionable, she is considered to be a miracle worker. Wyley seemed to have wanted you to talk to her about something... But first, a battle!
If you beat her, she'll give you the Potion Badge and a TM for Sludge Bomb!
It seems that Wyley has returned after your battle with Alice... Your 9th gym battle awaits!
