How to Get the Leaf That's Growing on a Pokemon's Head in "Pokemon HeartGold"

The children's video game "Pokémon HeartGold" for the Nintendo DS is an updated remake of 1999's "Pokémon Gold Version" for the Game Boy Color. As with the original game, "Pokémon HeartGold" casts the player as a trainer of creatures called Pokémon. The player collects and catalogs the Pokémon, which fight one another and change form. The leaves that you may see growing from a monster's head form a crown. The crown serves no tactical purpose, but it decorates your Pokémon and adds a star to the corresponding trainer card.
