In Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald, to reach the Gym Leader, Trainers must step on every ice tile to activate the stairways to the next level. If any tile is used twice, the player will fall to a lower floor, where the Gym Trainers are located. No matter where he or she falls, at least one Trainer must be challenged before the stairs can be returned to. The levels on the basement floor are separated with ice slides, allowing the player to only move downwards.
When defeated, theWallace{{sup/3|RS}} Gymor LeaderJuan{{sup/3|E}} will give the player the {{Badge|Rain}} as well as {{TM|03|Water Pulse}} as a reward.
===Generation VI===
In Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, the player can walk across the ice diagonally instead of just straight. The second and third puzzles now also contain solid platforms which can be stepped onto multiple times without them breaking. Once a puzzle is solved and the player has entered the next level, the cracked tiles on the lower levels can be stepped onto without them breaking. The ice slides on the lower floor are replaced with stairs, allowing the player to freely move between the different levels of the floor. In addition, two Trainers can now be battled on the main floor.
When defeated, Wallace will give the player the {{Badge|Rain}} as well as {{HM|05|Waterfall}}{{sup/6|ORAS}} as a reward.
In the [[AG111|next episode]], Sealeo was one of the two Pokémon Juan used in the first round of his battle with Ash. Sealeo used Blizzard on {{AP|Pikachu}} and {{AP|Snorunt}}, but Snorunt countered it with {{m|Icy Wind}}. It then tried to hit Pikachu with Aurora Beam, but Pikachu dodged. When Ash switched Snorunt for {{AP|Corphish}} and attacked with {{m|BubbleBeam}}, Sealeo dived into the water and tried hitting Pikachu again, but once again Pikachu dodged. After Sealeo was left alone against both of Ash's Pokémon it used Ice Ball repeatedly and almost won the battle, but was eventually taken down by Corphish's {{m|Crabhammer}}.
Sealeo's known moves are {{m|Blizzard}}, {{m|Aurora Beam}}, and {{m|Ice Ball}}.}}
|desc={{p|Seaking}} battled alongside Sealeo in the Double Battle against Pikachu and Snorunt. It used Horn Drill to reflect Pikachu's {{t|Electric}} attacks at Snorunt. When Ash's Pokémon were attempting to attack from up close, Seaking hit Snorunt with Hyper Beam, forcing Ash to switch Snorunt for {{AP|Corphish}}. Seaking then dived and used Horn Attack, but Corphish caught it by the horn. Seaking followed up with Horn Drill, damaging Corphish, but was then hit by Pikachu's {{m|Iron Tail}} and fainted.
Seaking's known moves are {{m|Horn Drill}}, {{m|Hyper Beam}}, and {{m|Horn Attack}}.}}
The second round of his battle with Ash, Juan chose {{p|Luvdisc}} against {{AP|Grovyle}}. Luvdisc started out with Water Pulse, but Grovyle dodged in time and countered with {{m|Leaf Blade}}. Luvdisc, however, was fast enough to dodge that attack and use Sweet Kiss, confusing Grovyle. Grovyle hit itself in confusion, and Luvdisc finished it off with Water Gun, which resulted in a loss for Grovyle despite the type advantage. Ash switched back to Corphish. The two Pokémon kept dodging each other's attacks, until Luvdisc dived underwater and Ash ordered Corphish to hit the water with {{m|Crabhammer}}. Corphish's attack, however, sprayed the battlefield with water, simulating heavy rain, which activated Luvdisc's Ability, Swift Swim, allowing it to move even faster than before. Eventually, though, Corphish managed to hit Luvdisc with another {{m|Crabhammer}}, taking it out of the battle.
Luvdisc's known moves are {{m|Water Pulse}}, {{m|Sweet Kiss}}, and {{m|Water Gun}}, and its Ability is {{a|Swift Swim}}.}}
|desc=The fourth Pokémon Juan used against Ash was {{p|Whiscash}}, who easily defeated Ash's Corphish with Surf and Rock Smash. Ash then chose {{AP|Swellow}}, but Whiscash grabbed it and used Tickle, followed by Hyper Beam. Juan thought he won the round, but Swellow recovered and used {{m|Aerial Ace}}, even after Whiscash dived underwater. After missing another Hyper Beam and getting hit by another Aerial Ace, Whiscash was unable to battle.
Whiscash's known moves are {{m|Surf}}, {{m|Rock Smash}}, {{m|Tickle}}, and {{m|Hyper Beam}}.}}
With its elegant grace and power, it was able to gain the upper hand against Ash. It defeated Ash's Swellow with Hydro Pump and Twister and put up a good fight against Pikachu as well thanks to its ability to Recover after Electric attacks and drawing in Pikachu's {{m|Thunder}} with Iron Tail. However, Pikachu pulled Milotic below the water and then used Thunder to defeat it earning Ash the {{Badge|Rain}}.
Milotic's known moves are {{m|Twister}}, {{m|Hydro Pump}}, {{m|Iron Tail}}, and {{m|Recover}}.}}
* Despite being a {{type|Water}} Gym, itsthis Gym's puzzle resembles an {{type|Ice}} Gym.
* ItThis is one of the only two Gyms that have different [[Gym Leader]]s in the same generation depending on the version. The other Gym is [[Opelucid Gym]].
** ItThis is also the only eighth Gym to not have any {{tc|Ace Trainer}}s in any of its appearances.
* There is a [[glitch]] in {{game|Emerald}} on the bottom floor of the gymGym where the player can walk into the wall above the ladder.
* Due to Wallace giving {{HM|05|Waterfall}} in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, this is the only Gym in which the player is ever rewarded with an [[HM]] rather than a [[TM]].
