After defeating the Elite Four for the first time in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, you can challenge them to a rematch, in which they will use higher levelled Pokémon and more powerful teams. In this guide, we’ll detail how to rematch the Elite Four in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, as well as their new teams

How to Rematch the Elite Four in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl

To rematch the Elite Four in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, simply visit the Pokémon League and enter the door you entered the first time you fought the Elite Four. All of the Elite Four members, and the Champion, will now have the same team they used in Pokémon Platinum, which is much more balanced and harder to face. Their levels will also rise by around six.

Once Heatran has been caught or defeated, rematches will get even harder. Their teams will gain a new member and/or have members replaced for an even better overall balance. Not only this, but their Pokémon are all EV trained, have increased by ten levels and have incredibly dangerous movesets. Do not attempt rematches without being prepared. Lucky for you, we’ve listed the teams for all Elite Four members, and Cynthia, during their rematches in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl below.
