GymFlyable to?: Yes
The Hearthome City Gym is the most changed gym in Sinnoh. In Diamond & Pearl, it was the fifth gym and opened up after you met Fantina in the Super Contest Hall. In the gym, you had to progress up multiple levels by opening doors and hoping it provided a lift upwards. If it didn't, you had to fight a trainer. In Platinum, the gym is the third gym and has you navigating a maze through a dark room, having given you a torch to navigate. Various trainers follow through the maze and will battle you if you're spotted. At the end is the Ghost-type leader; Fantina. Defeating Fantina allows you to use HM05; Defog in Platinum and HM03; Surf in Diamond & Pearl
