Gardenia is the second Gym Leader in the Sinnoh Region. She uses Grass types and, after you have defeated her, will give you the forest badge and the TM Grass Knot.


Gardenia has several lines that she says in the Games. They are as follows:

Diamond and Pearl Only (Blocking door to maze)
At my Gym, no one gets to battle with the Gym Leader - me - until they've beaten all the other Trainers. I'll be waiting out in the back. Good luck, challenger!
Platinum Only (Outside of the building)
Hi! I'm Gardenia! I'm this town's Gym Leader! My last challenger was this awfully speedy young guy. ...Actually, his name was <rival>. He told me about you. He said that another challenger's on the way, so that made me antsy! At my Gym, no one gets to battle with the Gym Leader, me, until the end. The challenger has to beat all the other Gym Trainers first. I'll be waiting for you in the back, Trainer. Don't disappoint me!
When you are about to battle her
You kept me waiting! I'm Eterna's Gym Leader, Gardenia, the Grass-type master! When I first saw you, I was convinced you'd find your way to me. My hunch was right on the money. You have a winning aura about you. So, anyway, this will be fun. Let's have our battle.
Once last Pokemon is sent out
It's not the end yet.
Whilst Battling
Are you saying something? You think you have me cornered?
After Battle
Amazing! You're very good, aren't you?
After being Defeated
I might've said it before, but you're really tough! Wasn't it hard for you to raise your Pokémon to be so good? I guess that's a measure of how much you love your Pokémon. In recognition of that, I proudly grant you this!
Yup! If there's one thing I can tell about you, it's this! You and your Pokémon are gonna get even tougher, and I mean seriously!
By the way... have you been to the Old Chateau? Me? Uh, well, you know, I have my Gym Leader job and all, so... Well, actually, I'm here training... I'm here just for fun... Ahahaha! Don't mind me!
At the Old Chateau
Hiya! Were you intrigued by the rumors going around, too? You know, people've been talking about the ghost Pokémon of the Old Chateau. I've been hearing rumors about sinister shadows, too. I should check it out myself, but going in there is... ...Well, you know, being that I'm a Gym Leader, I'm always busy. So, since I'm so busy, I can't go in. It's not because I'm s-scared! S-so, good luck with your investigation!
At your Villa Platinum Only
Listen, listen! I came for a visit! Can I go in?
...I'm in a dilemma now. You see, I don't like ghost Pokémon very much. But, what if... What if there was a Grass-type ghost Pokémon? What then?
