Created by Game Freak, Inc.

Abomasnow is a Grass/Ice Pokémon whose juvenile stage is known as Snover. When exposed to Abomasite, it will temporarily transform into Mega Abomasnow.

It lives a quiet life on mountains that are perpetually covered in snow. It hides itself, blanketing wide areas in snow by whipping up blizzards in mountains that are always buried in snow. They appear when the snow flowers bloom. When the petals fall, they retreat to places unknown again.

It is the abominable snowman; it is also known as "The Ice Monster."


Abomasnow appears to be based on a cross between an evergreen tree covered in snow and a yeti. It may also be based on juhyou, trees completely covered in snow known as "snow monsters".
