First and foremost, you'll need to solve the Eterna City Gym puzzle in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl before you can battle Gardenia. This puzzle is a rather simple one, and requires you to locate four Pokémon Trainers hiding amongst the forest in the gym. Pictured above, we have shown the location of all four Trainers; if you can't see the trainer, our player is facing their position. Simply walk to that area and press A, then let the battle commence!

Once all four Trainers have been successfully beaten, Gardenia will appear. Here are the three Pokémon she throws at you, their type, approximate level, and weaknesses:
