HeartGold/SoulSilver gym leader rematches

Pokémon HeartGold & SoulSilver continue the trend of trainer rematches. However there are some differences here. You must first find each leader when they are away from their gym; they will be registered in the PokéGear and tell you a day and/or time to call them for rematch battles.

Setting up rematches

Before you can actually challenge a gym leader, you must find them when they are away from their gym. The list below has the information for each leader, plus we also provide a handy timetable format so you can easily see which trainers you can meet right now.

Special cases

  • Chuck never leaves his gym. Talk to his wife outside to get the PokéGear number.
  • Lt. Surge appears outside the power plant after you have captured/defeated Zapdos. You must show him a Pikachu to get his phone number.
  • Blue never leaves his gym either. Talk to his sister Daisy in Pallet Town after she has given 5 Pokémon massages and show her a Pokémon with full happiness.
