It is time to take on the Mahogany Gym, which is full of Ice Pokemon! Now, if this was a Gym with pure Ice type Pokemon, I would be doing well, with Kindle and S.MachoMan being my main strikers, with Cannonbolt and Escargo being used on rare occasion mostly. However, ALL Ice types up to 2nd Gen are NOT pure Ice! Dewgong and Cloyster laugh at Kindle and Cannonbolt (though lets Nassie be used), Jynx can also defeat S.MachoMan easily, and Swinub can Mud Bomb Escargo. So really, all I can really do is power through with whatever I have. S.MachoMan and Nassie were my star players in this gym.
I love the Male Skier's overworld Sprite. The fact that it always looks like it's actually skiing makes me laugh. It's a shame you only fight them here (though maybe in the Battle Frontier). Anyway, we challenge...
Against Seel, I sent out Kindle. Thankfully the Seel (I think) doesn't know any Water type moves and isn't even the Water type! However, it did set up Hail as Kindle headbutted. The Seel used Icy Wind after Kindle Leered at it, and one more Headbutt knocked it down. Then it was the Piloswine. I sent S.MachoMan at it and told it to keep using Brick Break. He defeated it except it took a lot of HP from taking a Blizzard beforehand.
Last up was Dewgong, and I sent Nassie to Energy Ball it, thinking it would be easy but... wait... no! Dewgong got a critical hit with Aurora Beam! I sent S.MachoMan again, and told it to Brick Break, who got a critical hit on it BUT did not knock it out, living with just a sliver of HP left! An Aurora Beam brought my Machoke's HP to the red, so I switched to Escargo while Pryce healed with a Hyper Potion. I got Escargo to start a Rollout combo, while Dewgong was slowly weakening it. After a critical hit and a Full Restore later, Escargo beats the Dewgong on its 4th or 5th turn of Rollout (and he's Modest...).
We finally earn the Badge from Pryce (the name escapes me) and we exit the gym. That may have been our most tight Gym Fight yet, because if Escargo fainted, I'd have to heal S.MachoMan and see how the fight went from there... Anyway, we head outside, Prof. Elm URGENTLY calls us and tells us to listen to the radio. We listen and hear this transmission (0:07-0:31)
