Tips for Beating Pryce

  • Level Up Your Party to Around Level 30: Seel and Dewgong are both Level 29 and under, but the Level 31 Piloswine is formidable. The smaller your party, the more you need to train.
  • Use Fire-type Pokémon: Fire-types are resistant against Ice-type moves, and Fire-type moves are super effective against all of Pryce’s critters. If you didn’t pick Cyndaquil as your starter, consider catching a Growlithe on Routes 35, 36, or 37 between 4 AM and 6 PM.
  • Avoid Grass-type Pokémon: Although Grass-type moves are super-effective against all of Pryce’s team, Grass-type Pokémon are vulnerable to Ice-type damage. One Aurora Beam or Icy Wind might be enough to put you in a tough spot.
  • Expect Healing: Pryce has a Hyper Potion that he won’t hesitate to use. It’s especially troublesome when he uses it on the tanky Piloswine. Don’t get caught off-guard.

Rewards for Defeating Pryce

Here’s what you’ll get from Pryce after winning the Pokémon battle:

The Glacier Badge has the following effects:

  • Lets your Pokémon use Whirlpool outside of battle to cross over whirlpools in the water.
  • Boosts your Pokémon’s Special stats by 12.5%.
