Gym Leader Rematches

Like a few past Pokemon games, Pokemon HeartGold and SoulSilver allow you to rebattle gym leaders! The difference here is they are more time-dependant, and you must first find a gym leader and get their PokeKlink number before you can rebattle them. Their teams are far stronger than their original ones, although this guide won't spoil the surprise for you. After organizing a rematch through the phone, a gym leader will appear in Saffron City's old Fighting Dojo, where the battle is held.

A nice feature is that the gym leaders don't leave the gym until you beat them! You can always come back later, or even wait until another gym leader accepts your battle before you even go to the gym. Each day, there are different gym leaders who either leave their gym or are open for rematches, which this guide illustrates.

Any Day

Pryce Rematch Pryce Leaves his Gym
During the morning, between 6 AM and 10 AM, Pryce can be found at the Lake of Rage. To find him, you'll need to use Surf near the lake where the red Gyarados once appeared, and head west. He's standing on a small grassy area just in front of the flooded-out part of the Lake of Rage.

Lt. Surge Rematch Lt. Surge Leaves his Gym
After you catch or defeat Zapdos, Lt. Surge shows up just outside the Power Plant between 9 AM and 12 PM every day. You must first show him a Pikachu. After that, he will give you his number, allowing you to call for a rematch.

Brock Rematch Brock Leaves his Gym
Between 12 PM and 3 PM, Brock leaves his gym in Pewter City to Diglett's Cave. The most convenient way to reach him is to get a Pokemon with Cut to cut down the shrub right next to the northern exit of Viridian City, and go inside Diglett's Cave.
