Fortree Gym is lead by Leader Winona, who specializes in Flying-type Pokémon. To navigate the gym you'll need to find a path through the one-way barriers that change direction when you walk through them. Most of Winona's Pokémon have a weakness to Electric-types, so a strong Manectric or Plusle/Minun should make quick work of her first three Pokémon. Her Altaria is also part Dragon-type and knows Earthquake, which is capable of massive damage to Electric-types. For this reason, it's also recommended you bring a strong Rock type to finish Winona off. Keep in mind that she will be using Potions to heal.

Your reward for defeating Winona will be the Feather Badge and TM19 - Roost. With the Feather Badge you'll be able to use Fly outside of battle and Pokémon up to Level 70 will obey you.
