Away from the town and set by the seashore is the Mikan Gym, run by Gym Leader Cissy with her younger brother's assistance.
The battle facility was shown to be highly automated. The battle arena can be transformed to reveal a pool underneath. The main arena's right wall can slide up like a garage door, so the challengers and Gym Leader can hit frisbees with their Pokémon's Water Gun. The left side's grandstand opens up to reveal a row of empty soda cans the challengers and Gym Leaders also hit with their Pokémon's Water Gun.
In the back, there is a large beach area where the challengers and Gym leader can compete in a Pokémon Wave Ride. There are flags indicating where a Pokémon should turn. If the challenger wins the battle, they receive the Coral-Eye Badge.
