Story

Spoiler warning: this article may contain major plot or ending details.
201

When the player first arrives here, it is announced that Gyarados has recently claimed ownership of the zone, ever since Empoleon stopped communicating with anyone. Feraligatr has been trying to reason with Gyarados, only ending up causing fights between the two, resulting in the destruction of many of the bridges in the zone. An earthquake occurs and blocks the way to the cape and to Lapras. When trying to cross the only bridge left, the player is challenged to a quiz by a Corsola. Once the player has finished the quiz, Corsola allows the player to cross the bridge and they become friends. Once the player crosses the bridge, Feraligatr asks the player to ask Gyarados if they can become friends again.

After the player has talked to Feraligatr, Piplup is on a different island with a Wynaut and asks the player to go to the Meadow Zone and ask the Bidoof there to build a bridge. The Bidoof from the Meadow Zone agrees to rebuild the bridges. When the player and Bidoof go back to the Beach Zone and are about to build a bridge, both Sharpedo and Carvanha suddenly appear, saying that one of Gyarados's rules is that no bridges are allowed to be built and they retaliate and challenge the player to beat Pelipper's Circle Circuit first. Once that is accomplished, the pair will allow Bidoof to construct new bridges and they become the player's friend, thus giving the player access to Gyarados once the player has given Bidoof 2 more bundles of lumber. The bridge leads to Piplup and Wynaut.

Wynaut and Piplup thank the player and Wynaut becomes the player's friend. Gyarados will challenge the player to his attraction, Gyarados's Aqua Dash. Once the player successfully completes it, Gyarados apologizes for his rash behavior. This triggers Feraligatr to open a path to Lapras, who takes the player to the Iceberg Zone, where Empoleon is stationed. A deflated hot air balloon lays on the beach just beside Lapras, who allows the player to take it for their own if they choose. Piplup appears and says that he'll take it back to the Meeting Place. The player then hops on Lapras' back and ventures off to the Iceberg Zone.
