Much like the Ruby/Sapphire version of this Gym, the puzzle in this Gym - when you approach it after the first step of stairs - is to simply step on each icy tile one time.

Use the diagrams to figure out where to go and how. We will note that, if you wish to fight most of the Gym Trainers, fall at least once.

And, of course, at the end lies…

Rewards : $5,520; Rain Badge; HM05 (Waterfall)

For the record, most of these Pokémon should be able to be unilaterally defeated by your Cosplay "Pikachu" IconPikachu (particularly with Light Ball), "Sceptile" IconSceptile, a different Grass Pokémon such as "Breloom" IconBreloom or "Vileplume" IconVileplume, another Electric Pokémon such as "Magnezone" IconMagnezone, or Primal "Kyogre" IconKyogre with Thunder.

"Luvdisc" IconLuvdisc is mostly about an initial weakening of your party: it can potentially force you into Infatuation before Sweet Kissing you and Water Pulsing you to death. The latter can cause Confusion and you really don’t want both (Infatuated + Confused means a 1/4 chance of attacking).

Taking out "Luvdisc" IconLuvdisc before the damage can accumulate is crucial; as usual, a One-Hit KO is preferable. Any of your starters should be able to manage this with a STAB attack. (Blaziken can do his with with Sky Uppercut or Brick Break.)

"Whiscash" IconWhiscash is here to screw over Electric Pokémon, because of his immunity to Electric and because Mud Sport weakens Electric moves. A good Grass attack would be nice to take care of this, or just a general nuking/STAB attack. Nothing special to note otherwise, really.

Beware "Sealeo" IconSealeo’s Encore and just starter-STAB him to death. (Again, "Blaziken" IconBlaziken will get his in with Fighting.) Or just generally STAB. Nothing special.

"Seaking" IconSeaking likes to make this team into what its made for; a Rain Dance team. Sort of. Notice how there are two Swift Swim Pokémon on this team.

Only "Seaking" IconSeaking actually benefits though, barring Water’s power boost, which isn’t too bad if you don’t keep a Fire/Rock/Ground Pokémon around. Of course, Rain Dance also helps you, giving STAB Water attacks on "Whiscash" IconWhiscash a chance, and making Thunder 100% accurate.

Horn Drill is a One-Hit KO move with its accuracy being equal to [User Lv. - Target Lv. + 30]%. If you have a Lv. 74+ Pokémon, you will avoid Horn Drill’s One Hit KO chance altogether, but that’s significant overleveling. Your highest level Pokémon with a STAB attack will do.

"Milotic" IconMilotic is the cornerstone of Wallace’s team, mostly a wall Pokémon whenever it’s used, particularly towards Sp. Def. Here, Recover’s presence alongside several healing items is no help to you at all.

For the most part, you’ll either sink this gal in one hit or however long it takes Recover’s PP to run out, whichever comes first, and it’ll hopefully be the former since she’ll more or less force out Recover whenever she falls below half HP.

So general nuking tactics - preferably from Physical-oriented Pokémon and preferably Grass/Electric moves - will be the general tactic here. No surprise here.

Wallace is too special to give you a TM like the other Gym Leaders…

After the battle, Wallace will give you the Rain Badge , which makes all Pokémon, even traded ones, obey you without question. It also allows you to use HM05 (Waterfall) out of battle, which he’ll give you.

Waterfall not only allows you… well, to climb waterfalls, but it also is a good physical Water move, particularly if you have "Swampert" IconSwampert.

So, in any case, we have eight Gym Badges! At last!
