The Elite Four

The Elite Four in HeartGold & SoulSilver are positioned within the Indigo Plateau in Kanto. However, despite their positioning, you need to get all 8 Johto gym badges in order to access them. Once you have the 8 badges, you face a decent challenge.

Elite Four Member #1 - Will

Specialty Type: Psychic

The first Elite Four member you will battle is the new Elite Four member Will. He is a Psychic trainer so Dark and Bug type Pokémon would be the most logical choice here.
