Candice (Japanese: スズナ Suzuna) is the Gym Leader of Snowpoint City's Gym, known officially as the Snowpoint Gym. She hands out the Icicle Badge to trainers who defeat her. She specializes in Ice-type Pokémon.

In the anime


In the games

Candice uses Ice-type Pokémon in her battles. Trainers who defeat her will receive the Icicle Badge, TM72 Avalanche and will be able to use Rock Climb outside of battle. Candice teaches that before battling with Pokémon, you need to befriend them first. Candice has an interest in fashion and romance as well as Pokémon, and believes a person should put all their focus into whatever they do. She sometimes muses that she acts the opposite of the way people would expect a Ice-type Gym Leader to behave - warm and friendly instead of cold and distant.

She later allows the player entry into the Snowpoint Temple.


Her team consists of the following Pokémon: Template:Team


Before battle
"You want to challenge Candice? Sure thing! I was waiting for someone tough! But I should tell you, I'm tough because I know how to focus. Pokémon, fashion, romance... It's all about focus! I'll show you just what I mean. Get ready to lose!"
When sending out last Pokémon
"I'm going to break the ice and bring out my last-resort Pokémon!"
When defeated
"I must say, I've warmed up to you! I might even admire you a little."
After being defeated
"Wow! you are great! You've earned my respect! I think your focus and will bowled us over totally. Oh, that's right! I'm supposed to give you this!"
When player attempts to access Snowpoint Temple
"It's OK! You can let that person in. Cynthia sent word to me. You're working on a Pokédex, aren't you? There should be many rare Pokémon in the temple. Enjoy your exploring!"
