Talk:Rematch

Every Gym leader you can re-match has been linked to this page (every gym leader except Wallace (Hoenn) and Ginovachni (Kanto) can be re-matched. Now then, lets get on with the Elite 4 and the Rivals... SpecialK Leiks Lucario and The Celebi Glitch 19:31, 17 January 2010 (UTC)

Elite 4 done. SpecialK Leiks Lucario and The Celebi Glitch 19:53, 17 January 2010 (UTC)

first

Wasn't this in the games as early as Red and Green? After you defeated the E4 you could battle them again and again. Turtwig A (talk | contribs) 15:55, 6 February 2010 (UTC)

That is good point. Lets add it! Something like:

Elite 4 and Champ

In all games so far (and probably in the future, soon to be confermed) the elite 4 and champ have been battleable again and again. Sometimes, after a Checkpoint in the game, they gat higher leveled pokémon.

Gym Leader phone numbers

The prerequisites listed for getting HGSS Gym Leaders' phone numbers aren't entirely correct; both Sabrina's number and Janine's number can be obtained before getting all 16 badges. The Pokégear page also says that Erika's number can be obtained before defeating Blue, but my experience seems to suggest otherwise. I'd correct this page, but I'm not sure what the best way to do it is. --Minimiscience 15:13, 7 December 2010 (UTC)

Oops, I missed out that detail when doing the table :P I actually copied from the Pokégear table but just changed the format so it looked more presentable. Anyway, the table is slightly changed to reflect that detail now. If there isn't a need for 16 badges to obtain Erika's number, feel free to change it, though i did cross-reference the Appendix. :) ---> AquaDragon 02:42, 8 December 2010 (UTC)

Error with one of the screenshots

230px-Trainercafe.png

This isn't how it really looks in Platinum. The trainers are supposed to be more darker in the buidling, where in this screenshot they appear to be who they are in the overworld during the day. Shiramu Kuromu 00:51, 2 January 2011 (UTC)

This picture was taken from the article Battleground. I'd replace the image with a better one if i could. Anyways it looks like it was taken from seribii. ---> AquaDragon 03:52, 2 January 2011 (UTC)

Gen V

So, still haven't heard anything on Black and White. Back to only Elite 4 + champ again, or what? PLA 18:34, 18 January 2011 (UTC)

There are many daily battles in Raimon city, Black City, Royal Unova, plus Morimoto, Cynthia, Bianca/Cheren and White Forest.----無限の知性DENNOUZENSHI 18:40, 18 January 2011 (UTC)

Pokégear rematches in HGSS?

It's already noted that you in HGSS you can call registered Gym Leaders for a rematch at certain times of days, but does something similar apply to normal Trainers registered in your Pokegear? For example, it seems that every time I call School Kid Billy on a Friday afternoon/night he asks for a rematch rather than dropping the usual hints about where to find Gym Leaders. --Stratelier 14:41, 3 July 2011 (UTC)

Rematching Legendaries

The article says that you can only rematch Legendaries after defeating them from Platinum onwards. However, I ran away from Uxie and Azelf in Diamond when I was playing through it so I could see them in my Pokedex without actually catching them. They were gone from their caves afterwards (and I re-entered their caves multiple times and they were still gone), but when I defeated the Elite Four, they reappeared. Keep in mind this is from Diamond onwards. Did anyone else have this happen so I can add it to the article? Porygon-man 15:20, 19 November 2011 (UTC)

Experience Gains in HGSS

I just compiled a table of the experience gains from rematching the various gym leaders in HGSS (it has exp per pokemon as well as exp per person) should I post this somewhere? and if so, where and how? - unsigned comment from Meltonkyle (talkcontribs)

I don't think it is really relevant to Bulbapedia. --SnorlaxMonster 16:06, 9 January 2012 (UTC)

Chili

Shouldn't Ash's battle with Chili in BW058 go in the Anime section? If so, then the fact about him rematching only one Gym leader he had already beaten that was outside his circle of friends should be removed. Sneaking from page to page...

Template needed

Since certain trainers on certain routes in Pokémon Black 2 and White 2 will re-challege the player in a rematch just be returning to that route I think adding a template will definitely by helpful. I also think somehow working on the route pages connected to this will help. So far I have only found two of these areas, Route 4 and Lostlorn Forest. -Tyler53841 (talk) 14:15, 9 October 2012 (UTC)

From what I can tell, it's pretty much only Breeders who do this, as every Breeder I went against when I played B2 did it. --It's Funktastic~! (talk) 14:23, 9 October 2012 (UTC)
Then that would be an important connection to use, but I think that should be added once the evidence can be completely confirmed. -Tyler53841 (talk) 14:27, 9 October 2012 (UTC)
It has been confirmed that this happened to all Breeders in the Japanese games so I'm guessing that this wasn't a bug and was intended, since it still happens in the US games then. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 14:54, 9 October 2012 (UTC)
Guess so, but as a personal statement it can still be a bit of problem at times since there is no control over this and I do not always want to rebattle in that area. -Tyler53841 (talk) 15:06, 9 October 2012 (UTC)

Black and White

Perhaps the page should mention that rematches are not possible and Black and White? RS89 (talk) 05:37, 21 November 2012 (UTC)

You can rebattle the Elite Four and Champion as always, and both Cheren and Bianca are available for rematches on certain days of the week. I don't know about regular Trainers or Gym Leaders though. GamerGeek 07:00, 13 December 2012 (UTC)
