Trivia

  • Not counting the player character forming a sync pair with a Seel, Pryce and Seel are the only playable sync pair whose type does not correspond to their partner Pokémon's type from the core series games, as Seel's type is pure Water until it evolves.

Origin

Pryce's design is based on his appearance in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver. Pryce uses Seel and Dewgong during his Gym battle with the player in the Johto-based core series games. He also uses Dewgong during rematches in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, and in the Pokémon World Tournament in Pokémon Black 2 and White 2. Seel's Dex entry comes from Pokémon Ultra Moon. Dewgong's Dex entry comes from Pokémon Ultra Sun.
