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



Abomasnow is a large, white creature covered in thick, white fur. Abomasnow's feet and hands are dark-green. It has a short, dark-green tail. Abomasnow has four green spikes on its back that resemble mountains instead of only having two, like its pre-evolution. Abomasnow appears to have a bushy moustache covering its mouth, light-purple eyes and large, bushy eyebrows that stick out like antennae.

Gender differences

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

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 making it so some of the harshest winds can not blow this Pokémon down.


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


Abomasnow dwell on snowy mountaintops.
