Season 5: Master Quest

Pryce was a champion Trainer in his youth, but was severely burned in a battle. While he was bedridden, his Piloswine went out the door during a severe snow storm and never came back, believeing it abandoned him and became cold-hearted. Because of this, he refused to fight Ash thinking him to be a weak Trainer. When Ash compelled him to a battle, Pryce finally accepted, but he beat Ash's Phanpy using his Dewgong.

When Ash again tried to talk Pryce into a battle, they stumbled onto a cave where they found Pryce's Piloswine frozen in ice. It had some plants that aided in the healing of burns, so Pryce realized Piloswine was frozen when it was searching for berries. Piloswine was defrosted and on being reunited with Piloswine, Pryce lost his cold-heartedness.

The next morning, Ash battled Pryce in a gym battle. After a fierce battle, Pryce forfeited as his Piloswine became tired and he knew it would serve no purpose to keep going.

Trivia

  • Pryce's name is a play on the word ICE, seeing as he is an Ice-type trainer.
  • In his Generation II sprite he was seen wearing a short-sleved shirt with stripes, but in the anime his shirt didn't have stripes. His Generation IV artwork and sprite show him to dress more appropriately for the coldness in his gym with a slight resemblance to the clothes he wore in the anime during his youth.
  • Despite Pryce being the 7th gym leader in Johto, the levels of his Pokémon are actually lower than the 6th gym leader, Jasmine's Pokémon.
  • In the manga, Pryce is in a wheel chair, unlike his anime and game counterpart where he's able to walk, but with a cane.
  • His appearance is also somewhat similar to the famed actor Jonathan Pryce.
