In several of the post-game guides for Pokemon Sword & Shield, I see that people say that you can rematch the gym trainers in the Wyndom Stadium. They say that you need to invite them, but no one seems to describe how to invite them. They are not in their original gyms and they are not in Wyndom stadium.

I feel like it has to be something obvious since no one describes how to do it, but I just can't seem to see it.

Apparently you can also rematch Hop, but again, how?

To be able to invite each gym leaders (also Leon, Hop, Bede, and Marnie), you need to get their gold cards.

  • You need to have finish the post-game adventure, for next trainers :

    Leon : Battle him at Battle Tower
    Hop : Finish the post-game by battling him, deep inside Slumbering Weald (You must have begin the post-game part by beginning at this place too, the endgame show that we must return to this place)
    Marnie : You need to find her in Budew Drop Inn, then go rebattle her at Spikemuth after the post-game adventure, next to the Pokemon Center

  • These one are given during the post-game adventure :

    Piers : You get it during the post-game
    Post-game Gym Leaders : you get their gold cards when you go to their stadium during the post-game

    Note that Bede is the new Fairy Gym Leader

  • Unknow location :

    Opal : I don't remember when or where you get it, probably during post-game

  • Marnie is not during the post-game story like Bede, it's a separate thing after that whole story is over. First you find her in Budew Drop Inn, then she'll be in Spikemuth.

  • Also, I checked if I had the Opal gold card (which is the case), but don't know when and where I get it :(

    @Maxim you need to start the post-game adventure (did you catch Zacian/Zamazenta which depends of your version sword/shield ?); if you don't catch them, you need to go deep into Slumbering Weald as said in the Hop part)

    @Maxim You won't catch Zacian at this position, that's just the start point to begin (and end) the post-game adventure, which is necessary to get each gold cards
