Ash's Glalie (Japanese: サトシのオニゴーリ Satoshi's Onigohri) was the fifth Pokémon caught by Ash during his travels through Hoenn. Its Japanese voice actor is 小西克幸 Katsuyuki Konishi and its English voice actor is Pete Zarustica. As a Snorunt, its voice actress is Japanese was 伊東みやこ Miyako Itō and its English voice actress was Kayzie Rogers.

Glalie made his first appearance as a Snorunt in Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snorunt. At the Pokémon Center, Snorunt stole Ash's badge case, causing him to chase after it into a blizzard. Seeing that Ash was in danger after knocking his head on a rock, Snorunt built an igloo around him and gave him an apple to eat. Later, Ash saved Snorunt from Team Rocket, and after agreeing to battle it, Ash captured Snorunt with the help of Pikachu.

As a Snorunt it would occasionally use Powder Snow on Ash. Ash had also used Snorunt in the gym battle against Juan. But due to its inexperience, it was defeated easily.

It had problems using Ice Beam as it could not aim properly. As a result of extensive training as well as the help of Robert, Snorunt evolved into Glalie in Rhapsody In Drew while May was participating in the Grand Festival. Robert mentioned that since it has evolved, Glalie would not have any problems using Ice Beam.

Ash used Glalie in the Ever Grande Conference where it proved to be a powerhouse in battles. It became Ash's trump card in many battles in the league. The most notable being the battle with Morrison's Metang, which it won. However Ash left Glalie after the Hoenn League at Professor Oak's lab.

Moves used


  • Glalie was the only one of Ash's Hoenn Pokémon that he did not use in the Battle Frontier at one time or another.
  • This is Ash's second Template:Type2 Pokémon. His first was Lapras. However, Glalie is Ash's first pure Ice-type, as Lapras was also part Template:Type2.
  • It is interesting to note that Snorunt evolved right after learning Ice Beam. In the games, such a method of evolution did not come until Generation IV, and Snorunt still do not evolve the way this particular one did.
