Battlefield

The Pastoria Gym (Japanese: ノモセジム Nomose Gym) is the official Gym of Pastoria City. It is based on Water-type Pokémon. The Gym Leader is Crasher Wake. Trainers who defeat him receive the Fen Badge.

The Pastoria Gym was the fourth Gym in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, but in Pokémon Platinum this was changed to the fifth Gym.

In the games

The Pastoria Gym is a large in-door swimming pool composed of three levels and numerous floating platforms. Switches on the floor of the pool raise and lower the water level. To get to the Gym Leader, the switches must be hit in a certain order so that a path will be formed with the floating platforms.

In Pokémon Platinum, before heading into the Gym, the player is challenged by Barry.

In the anime

The Pastoria Gym was featured in the anime episode A Crasher Course in Power!. Like most Water Gyms in the anime, the Gym's battlefield is featured as a pool with several floating platforms on it for non-swimming Pokémon.

Ash faced Crasher Wake in a 3-on-3 battle, which culminated in Ash's Buizel battling against Wake's powerhouse, Floatzel. Buizel was eventually able to defeat its evolved form, earning Ash the Fen Badge.

Pokémon used in Gym

Crasher Wake's Gyarados
Gyarados
The first Pokémon used by Crasher Wake during the Gym battle against Ash was his Gyarados which went up against Pikachu. Gyarados showed its strength by standing up to Pikachu's Thunderbolt, but was defeated when Pikachu combined the speed it picked up by falling alongside a Volt Tackle.

It also reappeared briefly in Mamie's flashback in For The Love Of Meowth.

Gyarados's known moves are Dragon Rage and Bite.

Crasher Wake's Quagsire
Quagsire
Crasher Wake used Quagsire as his second Pokémon during his Gym battle against Ash, and it proved itself to be very tricky, able to counteract Turtwig's high speed with its excellent hearing and as Quagsire had attacks perfectly suited to battle Grass-types, Ash was forced to recall it.

Quagsire next went up against Buizel and although Quagsire was able to absorb Buizel's SonicBooms with its bulky body, it was knocked out by the sheer force of Ice Aqua Jet.

It also reappeared briefly in Mamie's flashback in For The Love Of Meowth.

Quagsire's known moves are Sludge Bomb and Ice Beam.

Crasher Wake's Floatzel
Floatzel
Floatzel is Crasher Wake's main Pokémon. He was introduced right after Ash's Buizel got into a fight with Pikachu. Upon seeing his evolved form, Buizel became hyped up for battle and a chance to prove himself to Ash.

Floatzel seems to know many different defensive techniques to guard himself from attacks such as inflating the flotation sac around his body and blocking with his fin. He also knows a variety of different and powerful moves. Crasher Wake claimed that Floatzel is powerful enough to endure even a Giga Impact by using his flotation sac. At one point he used his flotation sac to reflect Buizel's Water Pulse back at him, confusing him. Later in the battle he used Ice Fang to freeze part of Pikachu's back. Despite all this, he lost to Buizel after Buizel fired a Water Pulse attack at him which sent him crashing into the ceiling and getting knocked out.

He also reappeared briefly in flashbacks in DP120, For The Love Of Meowth, and League Unleashed!.

Floatzel also appeared alongside Wake during the credits of Zoroark: Master of Illusions.

Floatzel's known moves are Razor Wind, Bulk Up, Whirlpool, and Ice Fang.
