Abomasnow (Japanese: ユキノオー Yukinooh) is a dual-type Grass/Ice Pokémon.

It evolves from Snover starting at level 40.

Biology

Physiology

Abomasnow are large, white creatures covered in thick, shaggy, white fur. Their feet and hands are dark green and they have short, dark green tails. As Abomasnow evolve from Snover, they grow two more green spikes on their backs for a total of four. These spikes resemble mountains or pinecones. Abomasnow have shaggy fur covering their mouths, light-purple eyes and large, bushy eyebrows that stick out like antennae.

Gender differences

The fur on a female's chest is thicker than that of a male.

Special abilities

Abomasnow have the ability to sense snow from miles away. Not only can they sense it, but when Abomasnow get too angry or form in packs, they have the ability to create high and low pressure in the air resulting in small snow storms. Also, Abomasnow's feet allow them to clutch into the ground. Therefore, even the harshest winds cannot blow this Pokémon down.

Behavior

Abomasnow are a tad short-tempered. They can become very territorial, and because of this, they live solitarily high atop cold, icy mountain caps so that they can have their space. They are also very stiff Pokémon both mentally and physically. They are sometimes hard to manage because of this.

Habitat

Abomasnow dwell on snowy mountaintops.
