The Mega Abomasnow saw no difference in the number of its opponents, it towered over them all the same. Though its Snover subordinates had begun to be attacked, it had still received a boost from their Ingrained roots.

Melissa sent out her Sableye, Ore and directed him to get the first priority in this part of the battle. Just as Abomasnow was about to strike the group of trainers with Ice Punch, Ore landed a Sucker Punch across Abomasnow’s face. Although the Sableye was the size of a Joltik compared to the Mega Pokemon, the punch caught it off guard. Mio the Pikachu took advantage of the distraction to Flash Abomasnow with a bright light, causing it to shut its eyes and groan before blindly trying to strike anyone it could reach. She then Quickly Attacked the towering Pokemon on its opposite side. Ore, still near Abomasnow, Jabbed the Ice type with Poison. As Abomasnow regained its sight, it swats Ore away as he uses Brick Break and delivers a swift chop to Abomasnow’s body. Mio surrounded her fist with electricity and Punched Abomasnow with the power of Thunder. The electricity danced across Abomasnow’s body but was not enough to paralyze it.

After attacking Snover with Incinerate Kyle the Heatmor kept to his fire attacks and started up more flames for Fire Pledge. He sent a column of fire rushing toward Abomasnow, striking part of the fur hanging off its arm. It lifted up its arm in the air just as Kyle’s Fire Blast grazed it. It grumbled as it surrounded its arm with ice cold air and caused several Ice Shards to come up from the ground. One struck Kyle and sent him flying into the air. Before another shard can hit Hotstuff, he is surrounded by light and powerful energy. His form changes and as the light fades the Charmeleon begins to follow his trainer’s next instructions. He leapt into the air and slashed Abomasnow up and then down with Aerial Ace. Abomasnow attempted to strike Hotstuff out of the air, but the Charmeleon blew two Flamethrowers as it continued to soar through the air. Abomasnow took the damage from the fire attacks, causing it to not notice that Hotstuff had landed behind it.

Rorik and Volg decided to switch up their strategy. The Charizard used its powerful wings to make its way through the storm to the wall of the cliff that the Delibird had been on. He sent down a Rock Slide that poured down on to Abomasnow. Abomasnow raised its huge head up to blow and Icy Wind at Volg, making it harder for him to keep flying. As he comes down, the Charizard hits his opponent with Acrobatics. While his wings were still near Abomasnow, he hardened them with Steel Wing and sliced across its body. While Abomasnow is distracted with Volg, Rena Jump and Kicked the Frost Tree Pokemon. It knocked Abomasnow off balance, and Rena pushed it the rest of the way by smashing her antlers into it with Megahorn. Abomasnow yelled in anger as it was pushed into the wall of its cave. Taking a note from Volg, it swiped an Avalanche down onto Volg and Rena. Rena acted fast and blasted some rocks and snow out of the way with Hyper Beam. The move obviously took a lot out of her, and she would definitely have to take a short rest and recharge before she could attack again. Volg was nowehere to be seen under the pile of snow and rocks. The Avalanche had also landed on Kimball the Vanillite. The icy Pokemon was surprised at the amount of snow that had landed on her, but didn’t mind the cold too much. She shook off a layer of snow and ice with Autotomize and immediately felt much faster. She charged up and sent a beam of prismatic light, hitting Abomasnow with a Signal Beam square in the chest. Excited to have a bit of fun with her moves, Kimball created a big heart-shaped Chocolate and let it explode like a Bomb. Abomasnow looked confused that it had just been attacked with confectionaries. Small pieces of chocolate landed in the snow, laying there for anyone to take a bite if they wanted to.

Abomasnow raised the two sharp icicles on its back into the air and Swaggered at Kimball and Mio. The Pokemon felt their attack power raise as the Abomasnow acknowledged them, but also became rather confused. It had noticed that Rena’s Sap Sipper negated the effects of its Seed Bomb, so tried instead to hit as many targets as it could with Blizzard. Every Pokemon and trainer felt the effect of the freezing cold wind, but Kyle was frozen in place.

However, the trainers’ spirits burned as bright as ever as they carried on with determination to take the beast down and return the Cloud Garden to the way it should be.

Mistilteinn, the other Mega Abomasnow in the fight, braced himself for another round against his much larger doppelganger. He pumped his long, tree trunk-like arms as a pair of light blue Swords of energy Danced around him before dissipating and sharply increasing his attack power. Sensing the powerful aura building inside its counterpart, the beastly Mega Abomasnow turned toward Mistilteinn and surrounding Pokemon and prepared to attack. With one wave of its arm, Abomasnow unleashed a flurry of pine needles that were as sharp as a Razor Leaf at them. Kai the Vaporeon prepared herself, ready to Endure whatever was sent her way, but Happy the Flareon had other plans as he quickly Detected the attack and pushed her out of the line of fire, taking the attack for critical damage instead.

Battered from the attack, Happy cheered Mistilteinn on as he gave the Abomasnow a Helping Hand by offering a good chunk of his remaining energy. Mistilteinn hurried up to the Mega Abomasnow as fast as his small legs could take him, and using his powerful arms as a pivot, spun around to strike it with a crushing Iron Tail. Mega Abomasnow certainly felt that one as it took a step back and groaned in displeasure. Not wanting to let the opportunity go to waste, Kai joined in with a combination of back to back Iron Tails of her own, further adding insult to Mega Abomasnow’s injury. Abomasnow roared and released a powerful Blizzard on the group of Pokemon, but this time it was Sigurd the Gallade’s turn to step forward. With one powerful stomp, Sigurd channeled the rocks in the earth below him and summoned a wall of stone that created a Wide Guard to protect Happy, Kai, and Mistilteinn from the attack. As soon as the attack finished, the rocks quickly crumbled away.

Looking to keep up the pressure, Sigurd employed a mental block on Abomasnow and Disabled it from creating more Blizzards. Looking to join in on the barrage of psychological warfare, Kong the Slaking began to channel a great amount of psychic energy as he focused on Abomasnow. The icy boss Pokemon glared at the pair and smacked the Gallade hard with its arm, a powerful Wood Hammer sending Sigurd flying into the Slaking. As the snow kicked up by the collision cleared, Jayson waited for his Pokemon to get up and retaliate. However, Sigurd simply laid there and yawned, playing Truant while Kong got to his feet and flexed with a smile, feeling Justified in his actions.

Fresh on the scene, Glitch the Porygon analyzed its opponent and began to Download its attack data. In order to take countermeasures, the Porygon proceeded to boost its own attack before moving on to increasing its Agility. The Porygon then looked to create an opportunity for others by releasing a wide Electroweb net to pin Abomasnow down. Kong charged forward as a massive amount of energy swelled into his fist. The Slaking connected with a devastating Dynamic Punch, knocking the Abomasnow back a couple of steps and slightly disorienting it a bit. Abomasnow roared and retaliated with an Ice Punch, hitting Kong hard and knocking him back as well.

Having had ample time to charge up energy, Caeda the Skarmory glowed brightly and slammed into Abomasnow for a powerful Sky Attack. Annoyed that it was unable to retaliate with the full force of winter as its Blizzard remained disabled, Abomasnow blew forth an Icy Wind instead, chilling the Skarmory as well as the Slaking and Porygon near her. Mistilteinn stepped in as well, hoping to absorb some of the damage done to his allies before returning the favor with a powerful Avalanche, sending a wave of snow and ice in the direction of Abomasnow. Looking to mitigate future ice damage, Glitch executes its Conversion program version 2.0 as its type begins to change… Not to be deterred, Caeda swooped in to hit Abomasnow with a quick Iron Head before veering off to soar back around once again. The Skarmory began to glow with a burst of blue flames around her body and slammed into Abomasnow with a powerful Brave Bird. Abomasnow roared and its eyes began to glow, firing off an Ice Beam that ripped across the battlefield. Having consumed a massive amount of energy, Caeda was unable to dodge in time and crashed into the snow, defeated. Glitch was hit as well, but took it well as a swell of water energy coursed through its programming. Happy was yet another who was too worn out to dodge, taking the hit before deciding it was time to Pass the Baton to a teammate in wait. Vi the Blaziken quickly took the Flareon’s place, ready to go.

Abomasnow had taken quite a few hits this round and was not quite looking as fresh as before. Despite the few remaining Snover that attempted to support their boss, the trainers’ efforts were making slow and steady progress on the behemoth. It did not come without a price, however, as many of the remaining Pokemon opposing the Abomasnow were beginning to tire out. Abomasnow glared an icy stare out at its opponents, not expecting them to have done this well against it so far. From here on out, it resolved to double its ferocity just as the icy winds that blew across the mountainside seemed to pick up in intensity as well. It seemed to have some kind of plan in mind, and it might just resort to it if pushed hard enough. Whatever it was plotting, only time would tell.

Do not mind how the updates were grouped; we simply organized them that way so it would be easier to type. You are free to collaborate with people from the other updates.
Lucas looked on as Kong charged his Psychic energy, which was no small feat for a brute ape like him. His eyes widened in momentary shock as another trainer’s Gallade was struck with a Wood Hammer and blown into the path of the attack. The two Pokémon picked themselves up and Lucas wondered if the Skill Swap had even been pulled off. Kong gets up eagerly though, pounding his chest in triumph. The Gallade, however, was a bit less fortunate, as it decided to dither on the floor to take a rest. Lucas had to stifle a laugh before calling out to the trainer Jayson and his Argonaut.

“Now you now what it’s like,” Lucas chuckled, realising the Gallade, Sigurd, must have ended up the target of the Skill Swap.

Jayson, however, quickly recalled his ally Pokémon, preferring not to battle with such a disadvantage, and replaced him for his new ally; a Scizor. Lucas clicked his teeth at the sight. ’A pity,’ he thought as he would have liked the idea of having his Gallade fight alongside Sigurd. While Lucas continued his light laughter, Kong moved in with his attacks, upset and angry at the Pokémon thrown towards him. He took it out by charging a Dynamic Punch and smacking the Abomasnow across the cheek. The giant monster appeared in a daze. ’Success’ Lucas thought for a moment, until it turned out it wasn’t enough to stop it, and the Abomasnow retaliated with an Icy Punch.

The attacks piled on top of one another as Kong was struck by an Icy Wind along side some of the other combatants. Blows were dealt by the Slaking’s allies as well though, among which were a Skarmory’s Sky Attack and another Abomasnow’s Avalanche.

“Kong!” he turned to his Slaking, “use-“

“SLAAAA!” he protested as he took in the sight of the other Pokémon attacking the wild Abomasnow.

Lucas pondered for a while what Kong was arguing against when it hit him. Sigurd must have had the ability ‘Justify’. Lucas’ own Gallade had the exact same ability, and it made him a noble combater who preferred honest battles. Gang-ups from an entire team against one Abomasnow didn’t seem fair, even if it was one who was particularly large and savage. Kong, a berserker who preferred brutish tactics, was quite unlike Rags, but gaining the ability ‘Justify’ with Skill Swap in all likelihood made Kong adopt the Gallade’s personality as well. But rather than taking up Sigurd’s quirks, Rags’ extended stay in his surroundings must have rubbed off his sense of Justice.

Lucas contemplated deeply on the problem with a simple ‘I see’. There was no clear way around this. Best options were to focus on one Snover at a time instead, as that wouldn’t have to violate Kong’s newfound sense of ‘justice’.

“King-Ki!” Kong yelled, pointing towards the rubble on the mountain-side caused by the Abomasnow’s Avalanche. Stones and boulders had chipped and cascaded down from the ridge above where Kong pointed to next.


Lucas nodded in defeat. It was as best a plan as any. Lucas didn’t have to understand his Pokémon’s speech to understand his intention. Just like Rags’ would have, Kong now wanted to investigate the party who went after the Delibirds. The Avalanche attack may have caused trouble above, and currently only (one/)two trainers had gone after the Delibirds. For all Lucas knew, they could have been caught underneath some rubble.

“Fine!” Lucas shouted with a hint of dismay. “Let’s go!” He hopped onto the Slaking’s back, slung his arms around his neck and issued the command. “Kong, Rock Climb up the Ridge.”

Lucas turned one last time to Jayson while his Slaking ran towards the cliff’s side. “Thanks for all your help again!” he grinned.

The plan was to scale the cliff towards Delibird’s Ridge with Rock Climb and see if Athena was in any chance trapped or in need of help. Hopefully, Kong could use Strength to move any rubble or boulders if he had to.
