Gym Leader Rematches

Like in Pokémon Platinum, HeartGold & SoulSilver allow you to rebattle the gym leaders, with them having widely superior teams than before. However, there is a lot more to it than simply rebattling them. Each Gym Leader is away from the gym at a certain point each week and you need to find them and get the PokéGear number. Once you have the PokéGear number, you have to call them at another specific time in order to organise the rematch.

After the match has been organised, you can find the Gym Leaders at the Fighting Dojo in Saffron City. The gym leaders are there until you defeat them so you don't have to go up at a certain time to battle them.

This page details all of the Gym Leaders, their teams and how to obtain them.
