The easiest route is shown below.
With the arrival of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, the established Pokemon formula has undergone a significant alteration.

Here are our suggestions for how to tackle the various difficulties, so read them before you rush to the hardest gyms.
Which Gym to perform first?
In total, Scarlet and Violet have eight gym badges, five Team Star badges, and five Titan badges, totaling a total of 18 badges.
You will receive those rewards for completing the game’s three different mission types, Victory Road, Starfall Street, and Path of Legends.
By the time the lesson is complete, your map will be marked with each mission for each of those three mission kinds, and you will be free to explore.
However, the game doesn’t specify the level of your opponents, making it simple to accidentally enter a gym that is too difficult for you.
Similar to this, further Titans and Team Star bases would be built at considerably higher altitudes.
As a general rule, tasks become more challenging the further north you travel.
You’ll probably need to complete these roughly in the order of the gyms itself because you need gym badges to influence higher-level Pokemon. This will allow you to have powerful monsters to match.
You might not be able to tell how tough your Gym Leader opponent will be until you come face to face with them in combat because gyms in Scarlet and Violet frequently revolve around some non-battle activity.
