In the anime

The Mahogany Gym appeared in Nice Pryce, Baby!, when Ash battled Pryce for the Glacier Badge. Using his Pikachu and Cyndaquil, Ash was determined to bring down Pryce and earn his seventh Badge. After successfully defeating Pryce's Dewgong, Ash had to face off against his Piloswine. Mostly due to Piloswine's ability to use Rest, Ash struggled throughout the whole battle. However, just when Ash was about to be defeated, Pryce abruptly conceded the match, saying that he didn't want his Piloswine, whom he had only reunited with the previous day, to be injured. Although Ash won by default, he was still happy to get his Badge.

The Mahogany Gym's battlefield is entirely made of ice, except for a small pool of water at its center, which Pryce uses to his advantage when battling with his Dewgong. Outside the Gym, all of Pryce's other Pokémon rest when he's not using them in battle.

The Gym assistant is Pryce's longtime friend Sheila, who also referees the battles there.

Pokémon used in the Gym

 
Dewgong
Dewgong is one of Pryce's main Pokémon. It was first seen preventing the Red Gyarados from entering the Mahogany Town in Rage of Innocence by freezing the river.

Pryce later used Dewgong during his Gym battle with Ash, where it battled Ash's Cyndaquil. The Sea Lion Pokémon was eventually defeated by Cyndaquil's Flamethrower.

Dewgong's known moves are Ice Beam, Aurora Beam, and Headbutt.

Piloswine

Pryce has owned his Piloswine ever since he was a young Trainer. After Pryce was hurt during a battle against a Magmar, Piloswine went looking for healing herbs, but was frozen on the way back. Years later, Ash and Pryce found it and freed it.

In Nice Pryce, Baby! Pryce used Piloswine during his Gym battle with Ash. It easily defeated Ash's Cyndaquil and fought fiercely against Ash's Pikachu. However, Pryce abruptly forfeited after Piloswine started becoming exhausted, earning Ash the Glacier Badge.

Gold, Silver & Crystal chapter

Mahogany Gym appeared in Irked Igglybuff and Curmudgeonly Cleffa and Savvy Swinub, where the Goldenrod Radio Tower crew, along with the Pokémon Association Chairman and Whitney, visited it. The Chairman believed that Suicune, the Legendary Pokémon that had been challenging Johto Gym Leaders recently, would be coming for Pryce next. During the visit, one of Pryce's ice sculptures, a Suicune, seemed to become alive. Whitney battled it, with Pryce using the information about Suicune based on its previous battles to predict its strategies. When Suicune was finally defeated, Whitney tried to catch it, only to discover that the "Suicune" was nothing more than an ice sculpture after all, being moved by Pryce's Ice Pokémon rapidly melting and re-freezing its joints, making it look like it was able to move on its own. After the visitors had left, Pryce mused to himself how he knew very well that the real Suicune wouldn't be coming for him for a very good reason.
