Specifically, he heads up the ice-type gym in the town of Glaseado. He was formally a professional snowboarder but now runs the Glaseado gym full-time instead. As would be expected for an ice-type gym \u2014 and indeed, for a gym leader as well wrapped-up as Grusha \u2014 he fights with a team of ice-type Pok\u00e9mon, and his main Pok\u00e9-partner appears to be Cetitan, one of the new Pok\u00e9mon added for Scarlet and Violet.
