This is a contraction of どうなっているんだ, "what's going on with that gym leader?"

You may also hear なにやってんだ (from なにやっているんだ), "what is he doing?"

So, this "どうなっている" means what 's going on?

What's up with him?
What the hell is his problem?
etc etc etc

Impossible to say without the context, which you have and we don't.

You're right, the translation is something like: what's going on, what's up, what's wrong, etc. I thank all.
