The Fairy Gym in Ballonlea is one of the most nefarious in Pokémon Sword & Shield — instead of completing a little challenge, you’ll have to answer questions or get a nasty stat penalty. The more questions you get wrong, the worse your Pokémon stats will become while trying to complete the gym.
Below, we’ve got all the answers to each question. They’re always the same, so if you follow our guide, you’ll ace the test and avoid annoying negative state effects.
Seeing as this is the Fairy Gym, I recommend grabbing a Pokémon like Corviknight. Corviknight evolves from Corvisquire and Rookidee — both very common Pokémon. You can find Rookidee in Route 1, 2 and 3! His Steel moves can absolutely slam Fairy type Pokémon, so he’s one of my easy recommendations to make this gym a breeze.
