See the maps in the first post. The 7th badge is in Tabuli Town, however, to prevent a glitch, please follow my instructions...

1. Defeat the evil group in Mt Pyre in Pyre Path.
2. Fly to Monatami City and finish the event in the stolen submarine.
3. Fly back to Retazo City and enter the cave there and beat all the grunts in that base.

After, you can now safely go to the 7th gym. ;)
