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

It evolves from Snover starting at level 40. It can Mega Evolve into Mega Abomasnow using the Abomasite.

Biology

Abomasnow is a large, bipedal creature covered in shaggy, white fur. It has pale purple eyes with bushy eyebrows and long strands of fur covering its mouth. Two tufts of longer fur grow on both its back and chest, with the chest fur being longer on the female. Its hands, feet, and tail are dark green and spiky, similar to the foliage of an evergreen tree. On its back are four green spikes that resemble pinecones. Abomasnow lives in snowy mountains and appears only when snow flowers bloom. Once the flowers die, it retreats to isolated areas. It is able to create blizzards to hide itself.

The sprouts on its back grow into great shafts of ice when this Pokémon Mega Evolves into Mega Abomasnow[1]. Its fur becomes longer and shaggy over its entire body, particularly around its head. Green fur or sprout remnants surround the base of the large icicles on its back, while white fur covers the middle.
