The Snowbelle Gym appeared in Sliding Into Seventh!, where Ash challenged Candice to a Gym battle for his seventh Sinnoh League Badge. In the battle, Ash used his Grotle, Staraptor, Gliscor, and Chimchar, even though the first three were weak against Candice's Ice Pokémon. Despite this, Ash was able to defeat Candice and earn himself the Icicle Badge.

In the manga

The Snowpoint Gym in Pokémon Adventures

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

The Snowpoint Gym appeared in Striking Out Snover and To and Fro with Froslass, where Platinum entered the Gym in order to tell Candice about her plan of going to Lake Acuity to stop Team Galactic from capturing Uxie. However, it turned out that she was forced to clear the Gym before she could meet Candice. After quickly plowing through the Gym puzzle and Gym Trainers, Platinum reached Candice and started a Gym battle with her. Wanting to get to Lake Acuity as soon as possible, Platinum intended to finish the battle quickly.

As Platinum had recently parted ways with Diamond and Pearl in order for each of them to protect one of the lake guardians, she was still lacking some of her own self-confidence, which she had previously received from her friends. Thankfully, due to Candice scolding her of her half-baked efforts, Platinum was able to make herself use her boldest strategies and beat Candice, earning her her seventh Badge. After the battle, Candice told Platinum how she had been contacted by Byron about the Team Galactic crisis, and agreed to come help Platinum and Maylene fight the villainous team at Lake Acuity.

The Gym is also inhabited by numerous wild Ice-type Pokémon, one of which was caught by Platinum after the Gym battle and later given to Diamond.

After switching with Abomasnow, and the latter being defeated, she went against Lopunny, and stopped its jumping strategy and defeated it, but just before she could claim victory, she was defeated by Rapidash who had it energy restored by Lopunny's Healing Wish, earning Platinum the battle. After the Gym battle, she was taken to Lake Acuity where she was defeated by Jupiter. Later, at the Spear Pillar, Candice gave her to Platinum.
