Get Into the Gym

Before you are allowed into the gym, you have to have at least one pokémon that is level 45 in your party. If you don't have one, you might want to explore Route 12 and Route 16 now that you can use the Poké Flute to wake up the sleeping Snorlaxes. Each time you wake up a Snorlax, you have to battle and defeat it within 5 minutes. After that, you can try to catch it.
