Go Artemis, use Flash Cannon!” Athena yelled out to her Mawile, who stood in front in an attempt to protect the Pokemon nearby. Athena’s Mawile opened the jaw-like appendage on her head wide and a powerful silvery beam shot out at the Abomasnow, who countered with its own Ice Beam. The two beams pushed back on each other, neither side relenting in power as they struggled to push the other one over the top. After a few moments however, Mawile’s Flash Cannon began dwindling in power and the Ice Beam pushed it back closer and closer to Mawile’s body. Mawile yelled as her beam gave out, getting struck by Abomasnow’s unrelenting Ice Beam.

“Artemis!” Athena yelled, concerned for her Mawile. She took a big hit but still stood strong. “Metal Burst!” Artemis yelled in unison with her trainer as the Mawile began glowing red, pulsing with energy. A massive red beam shot out of the Mawile’s jaw-like horn, blasting through the Abomasnow’s Ice Beam and ramming into the Abomasnow at full power. The beastly Abomasnow let out a booming, pained roar as an explosion of light erupted from its body. As the smoke and snow slowly dissipated from the air, the trainers could see Abomasnow lying face down in the snow. All was quiet, save for the occasional rumbling of rocks tumbling down from the mountain above, and people were beginning to wonder if the fight was finally over.

However, to everyone’s dismay, the Mega Abomasnow began to rustle as it slowly got up to its hands and feet. The creature looked completely exhausted, but still possessed a fierce determination to keep going. A commotion of noise suddenly erupted from all around the area as a number of ice type Pokemon began to appear on the scene. Vanillites, Vanillishes, and Vanilluxes floated in the air alongside Cryogonal. Sneasels, Vulpix, Swinub, and Cubchoo watched on as well as the Weavile from the Oran Orchard. Several Smoochum, Snorunt, and Snover showed up while some Delibird fluttered down from above. All of the Pokemon seemed to be in an uproar, and the trainers feared the worst; a much bigger and more drawn-out fight coming up as they were completely surrounded by the army of ice Pokemon.

Abomasnow seemed a bit more confident now that its troops had returned to its side. “Snowww!” it bellowed, calling them forth to attack the trainers. However, the Pokemon remained where they stood. “Gla… lie…” The Glalie from the waterfall floated forward, back in its normal form as Froslass stuck by his side. Glalie looked up and around at the mountainside, as it looked like the aftermath of a warzone. Several rocks continued to fall from above. “Glalie!” it called out again, and the ice Pokemon began to converge on the Abomasnow. For the first time yet, there was a look of panic in the Abomasnow’s eyes as it began to blow a powerful Blizzard to try and defend itself. It was no match however, as the army of ice Pokemon breathed their own flurry of Powder Snows, Icy Winds, Frost Breaths, and Ice Beams at the behemoth.

“I guess the ice Pokemon are upset at their leader for nearly destroying their home,” Athena commented as the Abomasnow’s body began to freeze solid. Pieces of rock seemed to chip off of its body, causing it to shrink in size to that of a normal Mega Abomasnow, although still slightly larger and still in its Mega form. Once the Abomasnow was completely encased in ice, the Pokemon began firing a path made out of Ice Beams into the cave from which Abomasnow came. They then worked together and pushed the frozen beast onto the ice and let gravity take over as the icy slide took it back into the mountain’s depths. With the Abomasnow now put on ice hopefully for a long time, the wild Pokemon began to slowly disperse into their natural environment. The avalanche coming from higher up the mountain seemed to have finally quieted and the Hail trickling down from above seemed to have finally ceased. All that remained was Glalie, Froslass, and a couple of Vanilluxe. Glalie looked at Athena and then to the rest of the trainers and gave an apologetic look, hoping to let bygones be bygones. They then conjured up a small pile of icy rocks and crystals and left them in front of the trainers before departing into the cave’s depths as well, presumable to lock away the Abomasnow and hibernate until next winter.

“We did it!” Athena called out, falling back into the snow as she let out a sigh of relief and made a small snow angel. Sitting back up, she thanked her Mawile for her hard work and recalled her into her Pokeball. “I can’t thank all of you enough for everything you’ve done,” she said, addressing the trainers. “You all have helped save my home. You’ve saved everyone’s home. I can’t thank you all enough!” As she wiped a tear from her eyes, Athena looked out at the remains of the battlefield. Caught up in the action of the battle, a giant boulder caused from a Continental Crush remained front and center. The exterior of the stone had chipped away, revealing a crystalline mineral underneath that shone an icy blue. It was cold to the touch and seemed to emanate a powerful energy. It was too heavy to bring with them, but Athena loaded up all of the smaller crystals into a bag. “Let’s head back down the mountain where it’s safer. I’m sure the townsfolk would like to thank you too!”

For all of their hard work, the following Pokemon have received levels (if a Pokemon is lv.100, you shall receive an equivalent number of rare candies to levels received):

Battered and weary, the trainers made their way back to the waterfall, where Marina and Jet were waiting for them. They were relieved to see that everyone was in one piece and congratulated them as they listened to the story of the epic battle that had taken place. The sun was out in full force now, and much of the snow and ice had already begun to melt across the area. After everyone was loaded back onto the raft, Marina’s Gyarados and Jet’s Drifblim took them back down the falls, where they were greeted by Samuel and Madoka.

Eventually everyone had been loaded up into the carriages where they were taken back towards town. Much of the snow across the plains had already turned to slush, the mysterious force of nature disappearing nearly as fast as it arrived. Once they arrived back in town, the trainers were met by a swarm of people, who roared with cheers upon their return. Arriving into the town square, the trainers were let out where doctors and nurses quickly tended to everyone’s injuries and healed everyone’s Pokemon. Hot cocoa was passed out to everyone, from a group of citizens led by none other than bundled-up Primrose, who had recovered enough to walk. She might have still been fairly weak, but she was going to express her gratitude no matter what.

“Everyone gather ‘round,” Athena called out as she brought forth the loot she had collected up at the mountain. “On behalf of everyone who calls this mountain home, I would like to thank all of you for your valiant effort from the bottom of my heart.” The gathering of citizens erupted in applause once again. “As thanks, I would like to give all of you a piece of the parting gift that Glalie left us with,” Athena said, laying out an assortment of items for the trainers. “Hopefully we can see you return to the Cloud Garden again on better terms; when everything isn’t frozen and covered in snow!” As the trainers gazed across the shiny assortment of crystals and rocks, the sunlight from the sky above reflected off of them in a beautiful glimmer of lights. It was a bright new day for the Cloud Garden, a day that the citizens of Galea Town would never forget.

All trainers have been awarded the following items:
Never-Melt Ice x1
Icy Rock x1
Ice Stone x1
TM Hail x1
Trainers may also select ONE of the following packages:
Package 1: Abomasite x1

I want to take a minute and thank everyone for participating in this campaign over the last three months. It was quite the grind, but we made it through! I especially want to thank Patches and morningstar for all of their hard work in assisting me with this campaign. There is absolutely no way I would have been able to tell this story without their help and their contributions. I really had a lot of fun coming up with this story, as it helped me create quite a bit of world-building for this zone I am so proud of, and so I hope you all had just as much fun participating in it. If you aren’t already adventuring in the Cloud Garden, I hope to see you there in the future, and if not maybe we will get the chance to update you again in a future campaign! Thank you all!
Athena shuddered, not only from the unbearable cold but from the anticipation of her Pokemon's next moves as well. Choux was able to successfully Feint Attack his way back into the battle. The normally placid Snubbull growled, then bit Abomasnow with Firery Fangs. He held on for as long as he could, the growl continuing low and angry. The little pink Pokemon was thrown off after only a few moments, and Athena ran to him as he landed. Panic set in when she couldn't find him under the thick layers of snow. The trainer knelt,
digging her hands through the snow, trying to ignore how close to frostbite her hands were. The crystal inlaid in the bracelet on her wrist began to glow.
"Choux!! Can you hear me?" She called as she stood up with shaky legs. She crossed her wrists over her face, and the crystal shone even brighter. Her arms seemed to move on her own, a dance she somehow knew, had the Springtime Pyukumuku taught it to her? She ended the Z-move with a swift punch of her right fist, and the snow in front of her was enveloped in light. Choux burst from the snow, kicking and punching wildly until he slammed into Abomasnow. The move hit much harder than Athena thought it would. She barely knew anything about Z-moves, but after seeing multiple variations of them throughout this battle, she understood they could do some serious damage. The Abomasnow was knocked off balance into the mountian, creating another Avalanche.
"Choux! Come here!" Athena yelled, her voice cracking. Her Snubbull began to run, his little legs carrying him as fast as he could before jumping into the protection of Athena's arms. She held him close as she ran, sliding to a halt once she felt they were a safe enough distance. "I can't believe we...wow. Are you ok bud?" Athena lifted her Pokemon up to get a better look at him. He was panting, but didn't look too hurt. Choux broke the tension by licking Athena's face. She giggled.

They were too far away to contribute to the battle any further, and the pair watched as several more Z-moves and powerful explosions rained down on Abomasnow. The trial captain that had led them here began a powerful attack with her Mawile. Athena and Choux looked on in awe. Would she be able to have a strong enough bond with her Pokemon to use that kind of power? Had she already done so with Choux? The trial captain's Mawile eventually wavered, Athena winced. Choux started to growl again, looking behind Athena at something approaching. From behind her, as well as from almost every direction, crowds of Ice Pokemon were arriving. As they passed her and the other trainers, they didn't make any sign of attacking. Athena and Choux watched silently as the Pokemon walked and floated by, led by a Glalie and Froslass. The trial captain was able to explain, they were there to help. Once the Abomasnow looked to be completely frozen, Athena felt safe enough to approach the group of trainers gathered around the trial captain and a pile of rocks Glalie had left behind. The trial captain made a celebratory snow angel,
and Athena would have joined her if she wasn't so cold and tired. Choux had fallen asleep in her arms.

Back in Galea Town, Athena joined the group of trainers again, hot chocolate in hand. Choux was at her side, begging for a sip of the chocolatey drink. The trial captain as well as many of the other Cloud Garden natives gave their thanks. Athena made a note to visit this place some time when it wasn't so cold. Once it was her turn, she took a look over the many items offered as a gift. She grabbed a few TMs, thanked Athena, and went on her way, making sure to stop and let Choux drink some hot chocolate before they left.


Monte grew to Lv. 8!
Eclair grew to Lv. 15!
Choux grew to Lv. 16!

Battered and weary, the trainers made their way back to the waterfall, where Marina and Jet were waiting for them. They were relieved to see that everyone was in one piece and congratulated them as they listened to the story of the epic battle that had taken place. The sun was out in full force now, and much of the snow and ice had already begun to melt across the area. After everyone was loaded back onto the raft, Marina’s Gyarados and Jet’s Drifblim took them back down the falls, where they were greeted by Samuel and Madoka.

Eventually everyone had been loaded up into the carriages where they were taken back towards town. Much of the snow across the plains had already turned to slush, the mysterious force of nature disappearing nearly as fast as it arrived. Once they arrived back in town, the trainers were met by a swarm of people, who roared with cheers upon their return. Arriving into the town square, the trainers were let out where doctors and nurses quickly tended to everyone’s injuries and healed everyone’s Pokemon. Hot cocoa was passed out to everyone, from a group of citizens led by none other than bundled-up Primrose, who had recovered enough to walk. She might have still been fairly weak, but she was going to express her gratitude no matter what.

“Everyone gather ‘round,” Athena called out as she brought forth the loot she had collected up at the mountain. “On behalf of everyone who calls this mountain home, I would like to thank all of you for your valiant effort from the bottom of my heart.” The gathering of citizens erupted in applause once again. “As thanks, I would like to give all of you a piece of the parting gift that Glalie left us with,” Athena said, laying out an assortment of items for the trainers. “Hopefully we can see you return to the Cloud Garden again on better terms; when everything isn’t frozen and covered in snow!” As the trainers gazed across the shiny assortment of crystals and rocks, the sunlight from the sky above reflected off of them in a beautiful glimmer of lights. It was a bright new day for the Cloud Garden, a day that the citizens of Galea Town would never forget.

All trainers have been awarded the following items:
Never-Melt Ice x1
Icy Rock x1
Ice Stone x1
TM Hail x1
Trainers may also select ONE of the following packages:

Package 2: Icium-Z x1


I want to take a minute and thank everyone for participating in this campaign over the last three months. It was quite the grind, but we made it through! I especially want to thank Patches and morningstar for all of their hard work in assisting me with this campaign. There is absolutely no way I would have been able to tell this story without their help and their contributions. I really had a lot of fun coming up with this story, as it helped me create quite a bit of world-building for this zone I am so proud of, and so I hope you all had just as much fun participating in it. If you aren’t already adventuring in the Cloud Garden, I hope to see you there in the future, and if not maybe we will get the chance to update you again in a future campaign! Thank you all!
After a large battle of attrition against the massive Mega Evolved Abomasnow, it just kept getting angrier and angrier. It had already one-shotted Megas, despite its best effort. Though, it wasn't before Megas had already given the creature its own nightmares to deal with. Just as all hope seemed to diminish, things went from bad to worse. Hundreds more ice types showed up, apparently ready to fight. However, two Pokemon flew in front, a Glalie and a Froslass.

Much to Bill's surprise, however, the Pokemon weren't surrounding the trainers, well they were, but not because they were planning to fight said trainers. They were actually surrounding the Abomasnow. They all teamed up to fight against the massive beast. Apparently, they weren't such huge fans of the Pokemon, since it had basically invaded their homes, forcing them to try to invade the rest of Cloud Garden, but now that it's weakened, they're fighting back and fighting hard.

It wasn't long before the Abomasnow caved. The ice types all attempted to make amends themselves, especially the Glalie. This Pokemon was apparently the same one that was guarding the Waterfall area. Either way, it seemed very apologetic and sent out its own gifts.

"It's...over, sir," Trono said. "We can finally rest."

"Thank goodness," Bill sighed in relief. "I was worried that we might have to consider this area lost. There's still a lot of places I want to go here..."

After a long rest, the group ended up being given their own presents, Bill received a bag with some Nevermelt Ice, an Ice Stone, an Icy Rock, a TM containing Hail, and some Icium Z. That last one would be very useful later on, especially since water-types mainly have access to ice type moves, and that isn't to mention that his newest addition, Carmen, also is an Ice type with a move to match.

Still though, Bill put the items in his bag, then headed out. He might return to the Cloud Garden, but for now, he was ready to head for his next big adventure.

------

Thank you so much for this event. It was a lot of fun and it was cool. *crickets* ahem... cool. *even more crickets* okay fine. But yeah, I'm happy that we got to go through this.

Mélina's bitten lip turned into a dropped jaw as the whole battle unfolded. Catalina went beyond her expectations, showing great power, but more amazingly, its dedication to her. It knew it was a bit a "suicide" mission, but it did not care, as it fully trusted her and her words, knowing it was the right thing to do. The Minior even made sure its actions were more useful than planned: the Continental Crush's boulder limited some of the Abomasnow's movements, and it protected a few of the knocked out Pokémon from further harm by distracting the monster with is Self-Destruct. Mélina swore she saw a large smile marked across the meteor's rocky shell, and heard a strangely gleeful battle cry through it. Despite it all, it was happy to help.

"This is what being a Pokémon Trainer is," Mélina thought, as she called back Catalina in its Pokéball then stared at it. "Trust between human and Pokémon, working together towards a goal, no matter how hard the decisions are."

The trainer continued to be shocked of the scene. Every single Pokémon of the other trainers, despite their incredible strength, were dropping like flies against the snow abomination. It seemed like there was nothing stopping him...

And then all the other ice Pokémon everyone fought against showed up. Mélina mumbled in worry, believing there was no way her team would keep up and counter such a glacial army, even with the other trainers' help. Her whimpering went to a stop though, when she witnessed the surprising turn of event of the enemies of before actually turning against what everyone first assumed to be their leader. Maybe he was, but did something that rubbed them the wrong way? Mélina couldn't really tell, but assumed that perhaps the Abomasnow went a little bit over the top with his winter rampage to their taste. Even Athena theorized it was because his tantrum started destroying the environment and consequentially their homes; so obviously, they didn't take his actions kindly. With their ice powers combined, they froze their leader completely, and pushed it back into the cave. As most of them departed while the hail and avalanche calmed down, a Glalie and its related of its species stayed longer. the Face Pokémon looked at all the trainers, and despite its fearsome appearance, its eyes spoke volumes, filled with sorrow and regrets, as if asking for forgiveness for how they all acted the last few days. As the sealed the cave shut with a frozen wall, the rest of the ice Pokémon slowly left. Mélina finally brought her jaw back up, and let out a sigh of relief.

It was all finally over.


As everyone arrived at the town, the villagers erupted a celebration to thank their saviors, rushing to heal all the trainer's Pokémon. Excited and wanted to celebrate with everyone who helped her, Mélina let out all the Pokémon she had with her - Glitch, Soleil, Lune, Catalina... even those that didn't had the chance to participate, like Lucette and the recently-captured Oyuki. They all enjoyed themselves as they were pampered with hot chocolate and playful banters with the local children. Before the party died down and the trainers left, Athena gave a last big thanks to everyone, and offered them some parting gifts - shiny, icy rocks that were encased in the giant boulder from the big fight on top of the mountain. (Mélina couldn't help smiling proudly, betting the boulder came from Catalina's Continental Crush.) The trainer nodded politely as she collected her presents, and after a bit of struggling of calling back her Pokémon, she left the mountainous village quietly.

It was surely a couple of days that Gaela Town will never forget, but it was also days that Mélina wouldn't forget, either.



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Glitch's level goes from 23 to 26!

Catalina's level goes from 25 to 28!


Picking up the following:
  • x1 Never-Melted Ice

Abomasnow was not letting up, it was completely ignoring the trainers and their Pokemon in order to take out the mountain in hopes of everyone being taken out along with it. Megas the Golett wasn't about to let that happen and even risked putting themselves in harm's way in order to stop it. They charged around to Abomasnow's front, doing their best to dodge the pieces of mountain that were crashing down and kicked at the ground in order to hurl Mud at the Abomasnow in hopes of Slapping it in the face with it to blind it a bit. It was no use though, through all of the debris, all of the mud was not able to reach the enraged Pokemon's face and only small splatters managed to land. The Avalanche was getting worse, Megas was having a hard time dodging it and knew they needed to do what they could and get out of there fast. They decided to charge in and use their Power-Up Punch on its foot since its arms were impossible to reach with how much they were moving and slamming into the mountain. This attack almost seemed like no use, it must be hurting the Abomasnow but it was hard to tell. Megas wasn't going to give up and kept on hitting but suddenly Abomasnow lifted its large foot and kicked Megas across the snow. They bounced through the snow and crashed into the side of the mountain, the debris began to pile up on top of them and for a moment they thought they were done for. But, they couldn't let it end this way. While under the debris, their trainer Bill activated the power of their z-crystal and this gave Megas the boost they needed.

Megas felt a new kind of energy flowing through them and wasted no time releasing it, causing Abomasnow to have to endure a barrage of a Never-Ending Nightmares. A strange and haunting energy began to surround the beast and flowed into it. The Abomasnow let out an awful sounding scream as it was being mentally tormented by whatever demons were just unleashed on it. Megas was still under the debris but was proud that they finally managed to be noticed. Abomasnow was no longer hitting the mountain because they were too busy clutching thier head in agony. Sigurd the Gallade knew that this was the ideal time to attack with his own z-move. He kicks off the ground and soars up into the air at an astonishing rate, creating a very large amount of distance between him and the ground. Once he lines himself up, he plummets down right toward Abomasnow. Before his attack makes contact, another airborne opponent begins to put up a fight of their own. Cirrus the Swablu swoops in and smashes into Abomasnow's head with Aerial Ace and instantly follows that up with an Air Cutter. They were still clutching their head at the time, but that attack snapped them out of it. Once Abomasnow opened its eyes they immediately looked around for the one who dared attack it, figuring it came from above it looked directly overhead and Swaggered at the first thing it saw, which was Sigurd. Sigurd's attack was now boosted even further and in the next instant, his Supersonic Airstrike made contact with Abomasnow.

The attack was powerful, so powerful that the ground beneath Abomasnow's body shattered and Abomasnow was forced to be half underground. The alteration of the earth also created an earthquake that ripped across the ground and damaged Choux, Vander, Khione, Pouli, as well as Megas who was still covered in debris and the quake shook some more to fall on them, completely knocking them out. The extremely powered up move definitely hurt Abomasnow but at the cost of hurting many of the Pokemon who were grounded as well. Sigurd knew he needed to get out of there but his mind wasn't thinking clearly, the confusion that Abomasnow had caused him was clouding his thoughts. In an attempt to flee, he used his Teleport but in his confused state, teleported to the last place he wanted to be, right in front of Abomasnow. "SNOOOOOOOOW!!!" Abomasnow roared with pure anger and dug its hands into the earth, lifting itself out of the crater at a great speed and slamming right into Sigurd with a Wood Hammer that contained all of the rage it had built inside while also blasting him with a Blizzard. Sigurd was quickly overwhelmed, it was all too much, causing the Gallade to drop into the snow knocked out, but his efforts certainly left an impression on all of those around.

Cirrus was somewhat nervous, he had a similar strategy and after seeing how things went over with Sigurd, going through with it was a bit intimidating. However, Abomasnow began to slam into the side of the mountain once again, it was so enraged that unless everyone wanted to die, everyone would have no choice but to go through with such tactics despite the potential consequences. Cirrus took a deep breath and then began to soar high into the sky. While Cirrus was preparing for his final attack, Choux the Snubbull was ready to show Abomasnow what he was made of. Despite being so small, he had a lot of confidence in this moment. Using his Feint Attack he gets in there nice and close and hits Abomasnow. Abomasnow is extra sensitive to everything going on around it at this point so immediately its attention is brought toward the little feisty Pokemon as he sinks his Flaming Fangs into Abomasnow's side. Abomasnow huffs at such a small Pokemon trying to get the better of it and blows an Icy Wind at Choux, the wind is too much for Choux and he's forced to let go and fly through the air, landing inside of the crater that Abomasnow's body had created earlier. Abomasnow then uses its Blizzard to rapidly fill the hole in an attempt to quickly bury Choux inside of the crater.

Choux was completely submerged in snow but before it got unbearably deep, Cirrus was ready to give Abomasnow another beat down. Cirrus had been diving through the air and finally made contact with his own Supersonic Skystrike. Just like before, the incredibly powerful move hit Abomasnow and it was forced into the earth, only this time it didn't go as deep or cause an earthquake since Cirrus' attack hadn't been raised as high as Sigurd's but it still packed quite a punch. Abomasnow almost immediately went to retaliate with the intent of hurling Ice Shards in the air at Cirrus but this was prevented by a very upset Snubbull. A sudden burst of powerful energy surged through the snow that was once burying Choux, opening up a hole so that he was no longer buried and headed right for Abomasnow. The energy was powerful and upon contact gave Abomasnow an All-Out Pummeling. The Mega Pokemon's entire body was forced against the mountain. The crash caused part of the mountain to break off and an Avalanche proceeded to fall. The trainers as well as their Pokemon began to run to get out of the way but Khione and Vander were slightly behind the rest and got hit with some of the debris.

Abomasnow burst out of the debris that had fallen on top of it from the Avalanche. Its eyes almost appeared to be blood red from the rage it felt which caused its appearance to look even more gruesome. Vander the Zangoose was tired of all the damage he was forced to endure, between the earthquake and the Avalanche he was definitely sore in a few places. He went ahead and put all of that anger into his fist, causing it to burn with flames of rage as he charged right up to Abomasnow and Punched it with all of that raging Fire. Abomasnow was not impressed and it was getting ready to whack the Zangoose away but suddenly it was whacked from another side by a Pursuit. Khione the Sneasel was also not very happy since she had to deal with the exact same treatment as Vander. The two Pokemon glance at each other briefly and then turn their attention back toward Abomasnow. Then almost simultaneously, they attack. Khione hit's Abomasnow hard with a Power-Up Punch and Vander who was on the other side leaps toward Abomasnow and smashes into it with a Low Kick. The sudden impact of the move causes the giant Abomasnow to lose its balance and suddenly it is falling over right toward Khione! Khione can see this and knows she doesn't have enough time to get out of the way so she readies her Iron Tail and whacks it as hard as she can, hoping that her move would have enough impact to stabilize the beast. Unfortunately, it does not and next thing she knows she is completely crushed by a several hundred pound Pokemon and due to her tiny frame she is knocked out instantly.

Vander runs in while Abomasnow is down and quickly slashes at it with a Fury Cutter for good measure before booking it out of there. After seeing everything that Abomasnow had done, no way was he going to stick around long enough for him to get back up. Sal the Salamence began circling around Abomasnow while in the air and began to blow a Firestream at it while it's still down. Despite the flames pelting it, Abomasnow still manages to get back on its feet and now has its eyes set on the annoying fire breathing dragon that is circling around its head. Kimball the Vanillite attempts to Astonish the giant but it doesn't flinch in the slightest. Its eyes are locked on that Salamence. Kimball can see that this is probably for the best, there isn't a single Pokemon out here that wants Abomasnow focusing on them directly. Abomasnow lets out another scream and then makes the Blizzard rage around Sal, the super effective and extremely powerful move was definitely taking its toll rather quickly. Sal doesn't waver, it may hurt but there are lives that depend on this. She moves onto her next attack and begins to blow her Dragon Breath at Abomasnow.

Just before Abomasnow pelts Sal with another one of its super effective moves, suddenly it is being overwhelmed by even more flames and these flames aren't coming from Sal. It was hit by a Blast that was Burning it terribly. Some of the small patches of fur that it had left were quickly melting off and the snow surrounding it melted instantly. Its attention on Sal was finally broken and now it was eyeing up Pouli the Mega Houndoom. Malcolm the Seviper tried to get in close while its attention was elsewhere and stabbed the back of Abomasnow's leg with a Poison Sting. Abomasnow seemed unfazed as it aimed itself perfectly and then lowered its head and began to charge so fast that many were shocked, it was hard to believe that something so huge would move at such a speed, especially after its leg was just stabbed with venom. Before she could even react, suddenly Pouli was being Bashed extremely hard by Abomasnow's Skull. Pouli flew through the air and upon landing in the snow it was clear that by some miracle she had managed to Endure the hit. Abomasnow wasn't about to let that stand though and prepared to inflict more pain but Kimball could see the urgency of the situation and used that moment to release her Signal Beam/Flash Cannon combo. This combination was powerful and even managed to make Abomasnow slide across the snow a few feet.

Before the light from the attack disappeared, Pouli smacked Abomasnow with a very hard hit before quickly Returning safely to her trainer. Kimball also knew that she was going to be in big trouble if Abomasnow figured out that the powerful beam of light came from her so she used her type as an advantage and quickly dropped down and buried herself in the snow. When Abomasnow turned around, the first thing it saw was Sal who was still flying overhead. As soon as they locked eyes, Sal blew a Flamethrower right at Abomasnow. At the same time, Malcolm blew his own Flamethrower at Abomasnow as well. The combination of the two fire attacks somehow enraged Abomasnow even further and it began to Stomp about randomly, crushing Kimball who was hidden in the snow, knocking her out. Malcolm knew he was dangerously close to getting stomped himself and decided to quickly retreat, but before he got away the Abomasnow's foot came down on his tail, holding him in place. Abomasnow was tired of all the heat being forced on it from multiple directions. Having observed how effective its last attack on the flying dragon was, it figured that sticking with that couldn't go wrong. Sal was blasted by another additional Blizzard on top of the blizzard that was already constantly blowing, Abomasnow also made sure that this boosted Blizzard hit the snake it had trapped beneath its foot, and between the crushing weight of Abomasnow's foot and the powerful storm, Malcolm passed out. Being pelted by ice was also quickly overwhelming Sal but she was fighting to hang on and then suddenly the blizzard returned to its normal strength and Sal breathed a sigh of relief. Unfortunately, that relief was felt too soon because an Ice Shard flew through the air and smashed directly into her, knocking her out of the sky and into the snow on the ground unconscious.

The abomination was a horrifying sight as its body was charred black and its eyes glowed a fierce blue as it continued to summon an Avalanche to attempt to snuff out all life around it. “We have to end this now! Go Artemis, use Flash Cannon!” Athena yelled out to her Mawile, who stood in front in an attempt to protect the Pokemon nearby. Athena’s Mawile opened the jaw-like appendage on her head wide and a powerful silvery beam shot out at the Abomasnow, who countered with its own Ice Beam. The two beams pushed back on each other, neither side relenting in power as they struggled to push the other one over the top. After a few moments however, Mawile’s Flash Cannon began dwindling in power and the Ice Beam pushed it back closer and closer to Mawile’s body. Mawile yelled as her beam gave out, getting struck by Abomasnow’s unrelenting Ice Beam.

“Artemis!” Athena yelled, concerned for her Mawile. She took a big hit but still stood strong. “Metal Burst!” Artemis yelled in unison with her trainer as the Mawile began glowing red, pulsing with energy. A massive red beam shot out of the Mawile’s jaw-like horn, blasting through the Abomasnow’s Ice Beam and ramming into the Abomasnow at full power. The beastly Abomasnow let out a booming, pained roar as an explosion of light erupted from its body. As the smoke and snow slowly dissipated from the air, the trainers could see Abomasnow lying face down in the snow. All was quiet, save for the occasional rumbling of rocks tumbling down from the mountain above, and people were beginning to wonder if the fight was finally over.

However, to everyone’s dismay, the Mega Abomasnow began to rustle as it slowly got up to its hands and feet. The creature looked completely exhausted, but still possessed a fierce determination to keep going. A commotion of noise suddenly erupted from all around the area as a number of ice type Pokemon began to appear on the scene. Vanillites, Vanillishes, and Vanilluxes floated in the air alongside Cryogonal. Sneasels, Vulpix, Swinub, and Cubchoo watched on as well as the Weavile from the Oran Orchard. Several Smoochum, Snorunt, and Snover showed up while some Delibird fluttered down from above. All of the Pokemon seemed to be in an uproar, and the trainers feared the worst; a much bigger and more drawn-out fight coming up as they were completely surrounded by the army of ice Pokemon.

Abomasnow seemed a bit more confident now that its troops had returned to its side. “Snowww!” it bellowed, calling them forth to attack the trainers. However, the Pokemon remained where they stood. “Gla… lie…” The Glalie from the waterfall floated forward, back in its normal form as Froslass stuck by his side. Glalie looked up and around at the mountainside, as it looked like the aftermath of a warzone. Several rocks continued to fall from above. “Glalie!” it called out again, and the ice Pokemon began to converge on the Abomasnow. For the first time yet, there was a look of panic in the Abomasnow’s eyes as it began to blow a powerful Blizzard to try and defend itself. It was no match however, as the army of ice Pokemon breathed their own flurry of Powder Snows, Icy Winds, Frost Breaths, and Ice Beams at the behemoth.

“I guess the ice Pokemon are upset at their leader for nearly destroying their home,” Athena commented as the Abomasnow’s body began to freeze solid. Pieces of rock seemed to chip off of its body, causing it to shrink in size to that of a normal Mega Abomasnow, although still slightly larger and still in its Mega form. Once the Abomasnow was completely encased in ice, the Pokemon began firing a path made out of Ice Beams into the cave from which Abomasnow came. They then worked together and pushed the frozen beast onto the ice and let gravity take over as the icy slide took it back into the mountain’s depths. With the Abomasnow now put on ice hopefully for a long time, the wild Pokemon began to slowly disperse into their natural environment. The avalanche coming from higher up the mountain seemed to have finally quieted and the Hail trickling down from above seemed to have finally ceased. All that remained was Glalie, Froslass, and a couple of Vanilluxe. Glalie looked at Athena and then to the rest of the trainers and gave an apologetic look, hoping to let bygones be bygones. They then conjured up a small pile of icy rocks and crystals and left them in front of the trainers before departing into the cave’s depths as well, presumable to lock away the Abomasnow and hibernate until next winter.

“We did it!” Athena called out, falling back into the snow as she let out a sigh of relief and made a small snow angel. Sitting back up, she thanked her Mawile for her hard work and recalled her into her Pokeball. “I can’t thank all of you enough for everything you’ve done,” she said, addressing the trainers. “You all have helped save my home. You’ve saved everyone’s home. I can’t thank you all enough!” As she wiped a tear from her eyes, Athena looked out at the remains of the battlefield. Caught up in the action of the battle, a giant boulder caused from a Continental Crush remained front and center. The exterior of the stone had chipped away, revealing a crystalline mineral underneath that shone an icy blue. It was cold to the touch and seemed to emanate a powerful energy. It was too heavy to bring with them, but Athena loaded up all of the smaller crystals into a bag. “Let’s head back down the mountain where it’s safer. I’m sure the townsfolk would like to thank you too!”

Battered and weary, the trainers made their way back to the waterfall, where Marina and Jet were waiting for them. They were relieved to see that everyone was in one piece and congratulated them as they listened to the story of the epic battle that had taken place. The sun was out in full force now, and much of the snow and ice had already begun to melt across the area. After everyone was loaded back onto the raft, Marina’s Gyarados and Jet’s Drifblim took them back down the falls, where they were greeted by Samuel and Madoka.

Eventually everyone had been loaded up into the carriages where they were taken back towards town. Much of the snow across the plains had already turned to slush, the mysterious force of nature disappearing nearly as fast as it arrived. Once they arrived back in town, the trainers were met by a swarm of people, who roared with cheers upon their return. Arriving into the town square, the trainers were let out where doctors and nurses quickly tended to everyone’s injuries and healed everyone’s Pokemon. Hot cocoa was passed out to everyone, from a group of citizens led by none other than bundled-up Primrose, who had recovered enough to walk. She might have still been fairly weak, but she was going to express her gratitude no matter what.

“Everyone gather ‘round,” Athena called out as she brought forth the loot she had collected up at the mountain. “On behalf of everyone who calls this mountain home, I would like to thank all of you for your valiant effort from the bottom of my heart.” The gathering of citizens erupted in applause once again. “As thanks, I would like to give all of you a piece of the parting gift that Glalie left us with,” Athena said, laying out an assortment of items for the trainers. “Hopefully we can see you return to the Cloud Garden again on better terms; when everything isn’t frozen and covered in snow!” As the trainers gazed across the shiny assortment of crystals and rocks, the sunlight from the sky above reflected off of them in a beautiful glimmer of lights. It was a bright new day for the Cloud Garden, a day that the citizens of Galea Town would never forget.

All trainers have been awarded the following items:
Never-Melt Ice x1
Icy Rock x1
Ice Stone x1
TM Hail x1
Trainers may also select ONE of the following packages:

I want to take a minute and thank everyone for participating in this campaign over the last three months. It was quite the grind, but we made it through! I especially want to thank Patches and morningstar for all of their hard work in assisting me with this campaign. There is absolutely no way I would have been able to tell this story without their help and their contributions. I really had a lot of fun coming up with this story, as it helped me create quite a bit of world-building for this zone I am so proud of, and so I hope you all had just as much fun participating in it. If you aren’t already adventuring in the Cloud Garden, I hope to see you there in the future, and if not maybe we will get the chance to update you again in a future campaign! Thank you all!

Between the damage the Abomasnow is causing to the mountain, and the destructive power of multiple Z-moves and other powerful attacks, it feels a bit like the world is ending. Eskil can only flee from the Avalanches and Earthquakes caused by this last climactic battle.

Khione is stuck in the middle of it all, and Eskil can't help but remember the outcome of the last fight he sent her into. This one ends just as poorly for the Sneasel. After dealing with the damage caused by others' attacks, she faces down the monster--and loses. It isn't a surprise given the difference in strength and the other hits she has taken, but Eskil still calls out in worry when she disappears under the Abomasnow's bulk, fighting to the end.

He is quick to return her once the Abomasnow is back on its feet. The mountain isn't safe for anyone, let alone a tiny fainted Sneasel. With Khione down for the count, he can only watch the rest of the Pokemon fight. For a moment, it seems that they have won, as the Abomasnow collapses, and even when it manages to stand, it is obvious that it has nearly run out of energy.

He is distracted from the fight by Nyx's hiss of warning. He turns to look, and his heart sinks. With victory so close at hand, the sight of an army of the Ice Pokemon they had spent the last few days driving off surrounding them is like a punch in the gut. The trainers likely don't have the numbers or energy to fight off all of them this point.

But the Ice types make no move to attack the trainers, and instead, apparently angered by the destruction, drive back and seal away the Abomasnow.

Everything has ended so abruptly, that Eskil stands numbly for a few moments. Athena calls out her relief, and after gathering up the rocks left behind by the Ice types as an apology, guides the weary trainers back down the mountain.

Eskil doesn't have the energy to celebrate, just mechanically follow the rest back. Loaded into carriages to return to town, Eskil cradles Khione's Pokeball in his hands. The fight had been brutal, and he feels responsible for forcing her to take on another enemy that was so much stronger. He'd have to apologize once she was all healed up.

The townsfolk greet them warmly, and Eskil is relieved when someone takes Belial and Khione for healing. Nyx waves them off, having had no part in the battle, and stays by his side as he nurses the hot cocoa passed out by the townspeople. Resting for a bit sounds good, especially as the hot drink banishes some of the chill.

Athena calls the trainers together to offer them the gifts left by Glaile, and Eskil takes the ones handed to him without much thought. One catches his eye. A shimmering blue Z-crystal. Having seen the power unleashed by the small items, he takes it with little hesitation. Perhaps it would be useful if they ever found themselves in another situation.

Pokemon healed, loot collected, and threat neutralized, Eskil doesn't stick around. Finding a warm place to sleep for a week is the next thing on his agenda.


(OOC: Belial grows from Lv. 29 to Lv. 33. Khione grows from Lv. 20 to Lv. 22.

A Cloud Garden Winter Campaign

Abomasnow was not letting up, it was completely ignoring the trainers and their Pokemon in order to take out the mountain in hopes of everyone being taken out along with it. Megas the Golett wasn't about to let that happen and even risked putting themselves in harm's way in order to stop it. They charged around to Abomasnow's front, doing their best to dodge the pieces of mountain that were crashing down and kicked at the ground in order to hurl Mud at the Abomasnow in hopes of Slapping it in the face with it to blind it a bit. It was no use though, through all of the debris, all of the mud was not able to reach the enraged Pokemon's face and only small splatters managed to land. The Avalanche was getting worse, Megas was having a hard time dodging it and knew they needed to do what they could and get out of there fast. They decided to charge in and use their Power-Up Punch on its foot since its arms were impossible to reach with how much they were moving and slamming into the mountain. This attack almost seemed like no use, it must be hurting the Abomasnow but it was hard to tell. Megas wasn't going to give up and kept on hitting but suddenly Abomasnow lifted its large foot and kicked Megas across the snow. They bounced through the snow and crashed into the side of the mountain, the debris began to pile up on top of them and for a moment they thought they were done for. But, they couldn't let it end this way. While under the debris, their trainer Bill activated the power of their z-crystal and this gave Megas the boost they needed.

Megas felt a new kind of energy flowing through them and wasted no time releasing it, causing Abomasnow to have to endure a barrage of a Never-Ending Nightmares. A strange and haunting energy began to surround the beast and flowed into it. The Abomasnow let out an awful sounding scream as it was being mentally tormented by whatever demons were just unleashed on it. Megas was still under the debris but was proud that they finally managed to be noticed. Abomasnow was no longer hitting the mountain because they were too busy clutching thier head in agony. Sigurd the Gallade knew that this was the ideal time to attack with his own z-move. He kicks off the ground and soars up into the air at an astonishing rate, creating a very large amount of distance between him and the ground. Once he lines himself up, he plummets down right toward Abomasnow. Before his attack makes contact, another airborne opponent begins to put up a fight of their own. Cirrus the Swablu swoops in and smashes into Abomasnow's head with Aerial Ace and instantly follows that up with an Air Cutter. They were still clutching their head at the time, but that attack snapped them out of it. Once Abomasnow opened its eyes they immediately looked around for the one who dared attack it, figuring it came from above it looked directly overhead and Swaggered at the first thing it saw, which was Sigurd. Sigurd's attack was now boosted even further and in the next instant, his Supersonic Airstrike made contact with Abomasnow.

The attack was powerful, so powerful that the ground beneath Abomasnow's body shattered and Abomasnow was forced to be half underground. The alteration of the earth also created an earthquake that ripped across the ground and damaged Choux, Vander, Khione, Pouli, as well as Megas who was still covered in debris and the quake shook some more to fall on them, completely knocking them out. The extremely powered up move definitely hurt Abomasnow but at the cost of hurting many of the Pokemon who were grounded as well. Sigurd knew he needed to get out of there but his mind wasn't thinking clearly, the confusion that Abomasnow had caused him was clouding his thoughts. In an attempt to flee, he used his Teleport but in his confused state, teleported to the last place he wanted to be, right in front of Abomasnow. "SNOOOOOOOOW!!!" Abomasnow roared with pure anger and dug its hands into the earth, lifting itself out of the crater at a great speed and slamming right into Sigurd with a Wood Hammer that contained all of the rage it had built inside while also blasting him with a Blizzard. Sigurd was quickly overwhelmed, it was all too much, causing the Gallade to drop into the snow knocked out, but his efforts certainly left an impression on all of those around.

Cirrus was somewhat nervous, he had a similar strategy and after seeing how things went over with Sigurd, going through with it was a bit intimidating. However, Abomasnow began to slam into the side of the mountain once again, it was so enraged that unless everyone wanted to die, everyone would have no choice but to go through with such tactics despite the potential consequences. Cirrus took a deep breath and then began to soar high into the sky. While Cirrus was preparing for his final attack, Choux the Snubbull was ready to show Abomasnow what he was made of. Despite being so small, he had a lot of confidence in this moment. Using his Feint Attack he gets in there nice and close and hits Abomasnow. Abomasnow is extra sensitive to everything going on around it at this point so immediately its attention is brought toward the little feisty Pokemon as he sinks his Flaming Fangs into Abomasnow's side. Abomasnow huffs at such a small Pokemon trying to get the better of it and blows an Icy Wind at Choux, the wind is too much for Choux and he's forced to let go and fly through the air, landing inside of the crater that Abomasnow's body had created earlier. Abomasnow then uses its Blizzard to rapidly fill the hole in an attempt to quickly bury Choux inside of the crater.

Choux was completely submerged in snow but before it got unbearably deep, Cirrus was ready to give Abomasnow another beat down. Cirrus had been diving through the air and finally made contact with his own Supersonic Skystrike. Just like before, the incredibly powerful move hit Abomasnow and it was forced into the earth, only this time it didn't go as deep or cause an earthquake since Cirrus' attack hadn't been raised as high as Sigurd's but it still packed quite a punch. Abomasnow almost immediately went to retaliate with the intent of hurling Ice Shards in the air at Cirrus but this was prevented by a very upset Snubbull. A sudden burst of powerful energy surged through the snow that was once burying Choux, opening up a hole so that he was no longer buried and headed right for Abomasnow. The energy was powerful and upon contact gave Abomasnow an All-Out Pummeling. The Mega Pokemon's entire body was forced against the mountain. The crash caused part of the mountain to break off and an Avalanche proceeded to fall. The trainers as well as their Pokemon began to run to get out of the way but Khione and Vander were slightly behind the rest and got hit with some of the debris.

Abomasnow burst out of the debris that had fallen on top of it from the Avalanche. Its eyes almost appeared to be blood red from the rage it felt which caused its appearance to look even more gruesome. Vander the Zangoose was tired of all the damage he was forced to endure, between the earthquake and the Avalanche he was definitely sore in a few places. He went ahead and put all of that anger into his fist, causing it to burn with flames of rage as he charged right up to Abomasnow and Punched it with all of that raging Fire. Abomasnow was not impressed and it was getting ready to whack the Zangoose away but suddenly it was whacked from another side by a Pursuit. Khione the Sneasel was also not very happy since she had to deal with the exact same treatment as Vander. The two Pokemon glance at each other briefly and then turn their attention back toward Abomasnow. Then almost simultaneously, they attack. Khione hit's Abomasnow hard with a Power-Up Punch and Vander who was on the other side leaps toward Abomasnow and smashes into it with a Low Kick. The sudden impact of the move causes the giant Abomasnow to lose its balance and suddenly it is falling over right toward Khione! Khione can see this and knows she doesn't have enough time to get out of the way so she readies her Iron Tail and whacks it as hard as she can, hoping that her move would have enough impact to stabilize the beast. Unfortunately, it does not and next thing she knows she is completely crushed by a several hundred pound Pokemon and due to her tiny frame she is knocked out instantly.

Vander runs in while Abomasnow is down and quickly slashes at it with a Fury Cutter for good measure before booking it out of there. After seeing everything that Abomasnow had done, no way was he going to stick around long enough for him to get back up. Sal the Salamence began circling around Abomasnow while in the air and began to blow a Firestream at it while it's still down. Despite the flames pelting it, Abomasnow still manages to get back on its feet and now has its eyes set on the annoying fire breathing dragon that is circling around its head. Kimball the Vanillite attempts to Astonish the giant but it doesn't flinch in the slightest. Its eyes are locked on that Salamence. Kimball can see that this is probably for the best, there isn't a single Pokemon out here that wants Abomasnow focusing on them directly. Abomasnow lets out another scream and then makes the Blizzard rage around Sal, the super effective and extremely powerful move was definitely taking its toll rather quickly. Sal doesn't waver, it may hurt but there are lives that depend on this. She moves onto her next attack and begins to blow her Dragon Breath at Abomasnow.

Just before Abomasnow pelts Sal with another one of its super effective moves, suddenly it is being overwhelmed by even more flames and these flames aren't coming from Sal. It was hit by a Blast that was Burning it terribly. Some of the small patches of fur that it had left were quickly melting off and the snow surrounding it melted instantly. Its attention on Sal was finally broken and now it was eyeing up Pouli the Mega Houndoom. Malcolm the Seviper tried to get in close while its attention was elsewhere and stabbed the back of Abomasnow's leg with a Poison Sting. Abomasnow seemed unfazed as it aimed itself perfectly and then lowered its head and began to charge so fast that many were shocked, it was hard to believe that something so huge would move at such a speed, especially after its leg was just stabbed with venom. Before she could even react, suddenly Pouli was being Bashed extremely hard by Abomasnow's Skull. Pouli flew through the air and upon landing in the snow it was clear that by some miracle she had managed to Endure the hit. Abomasnow wasn't about to let that stand though and prepared to inflict more pain but Kimball could see the urgency of the situation and used that moment to release her Signal Beam/Flash Cannon combo. This combination was powerful and even managed to make Abomasnow slide across the snow a few feet.

Before the light from the attack disappeared, Pouli smacked Abomasnow with a very hard hit before quickly Returning safely to her trainer. Kimball also knew that she was going to be in big trouble if Abomasnow figured out that the powerful beam of light came from her so she used her type as an advantage and quickly dropped down and buried herself in the snow. When Abomasnow turned around, the first thing it saw was Sal who was still flying overhead. As soon as they locked eyes, Sal blew a Flamethrower right at Abomasnow. At the same time, Malcolm blew his own Flamethrower at Abomasnow as well. The combination of the two fire attacks somehow enraged Abomasnow even further and it began to Stomp about randomly, crushing Kimball who was hidden in the snow, knocking her out. Malcolm knew he was dangerously close to getting stomped himself and decided to quickly retreat, but before he got away the Abomasnow's foot came down on his tail, holding him in place. Abomasnow was tired of all the heat being forced on it from multiple directions. Having observed how effective its last attack on the flying dragon was, it figured that sticking with that couldn't go wrong. Sal was blasted by another additional Blizzard on top of the blizzard that was already constantly blowing, Abomasnow also made sure that this boosted Blizzard hit the snake it had trapped beneath its foot, and between the crushing weight of Abomasnow's foot and the powerful storm, Malcolm passed out. Being pelted by ice was also quickly overwhelming Sal but she was fighting to hang on and then suddenly the blizzard returned to its normal strength and Sal breathed a sigh of relief. Unfortunately, that relief was felt too soon because an Ice Shard flew through the air and smashed directly into her, knocking her out of the sky and into the snow on the ground unconscious.

The abomination was a horrifying sight as its body was charred black and its eyes glowed a fierce blue as it continued to summon an Avalanche to attempt to snuff out all life around it. “We have to end this now! Go Artemis, use Flash Cannon!” Athena yelled out to her Mawile, who stood in front in an attempt to protect the Pokemon nearby. Athena’s Mawile opened the jaw-like appendage on her head wide and a powerful silvery beam shot out at the Abomasnow, who countered with its own Ice Beam. The two beams pushed back on each other, neither side relenting in power as they struggled to push the other one over the top. After a few moments however, Mawile’s Flash Cannon began dwindling in power and the Ice Beam pushed it back closer and closer to Mawile’s body. Mawile yelled as her beam gave out, getting struck by Abomasnow’s unrelenting Ice Beam.

“Artemis!” Athena yelled, concerned for her Mawile. She took a big hit but still stood strong. “Metal Burst!” Artemis yelled in unison with her trainer as the Mawile began glowing red, pulsing with energy. A massive red beam shot out of the Mawile’s jaw-like horn, blasting through the Abomasnow’s Ice Beam and ramming into the Abomasnow at full power. The beastly Abomasnow let out a booming, pained roar as an explosion of light erupted from its body. As the smoke and snow slowly dissipated from the air, the trainers could see Abomasnow lying face down in the snow. All was quiet, save for the occasional rumbling of rocks tumbling down from the mountain above, and people were beginning to wonder if the fight was finally over.

However, to everyone’s dismay, the Mega Abomasnow began to rustle as it slowly got up to its hands and feet. The creature looked completely exhausted, but still possessed a fierce determination to keep going. A commotion of noise suddenly erupted from all around the area as a number of ice type Pokemon began to appear on the scene. Vanillites, Vanillishes, and Vanilluxes floated in the air alongside Cryogonal. Sneasels, Vulpix, Swinub, and Cubchoo watched on as well as the Weavile from the Oran Orchard. Several Smoochum, Snorunt, and Snover showed up while some Delibird fluttered down from above. All of the Pokemon seemed to be in an uproar, and the trainers feared the worst; a much bigger and more drawn-out fight coming up as they were completely surrounded by the army of ice Pokemon.

Abomasnow seemed a bit more confident now that its troops had returned to its side. “Snowww!” it bellowed, calling them forth to attack the trainers. However, the Pokemon remained where they stood. “Gla… lie…” The Glalie from the waterfall floated forward, back in its normal form as Froslass stuck by his side. Glalie looked up and around at the mountainside, as it looked like the aftermath of a warzone. Several rocks continued to fall from above. “Glalie!” it called out again, and the ice Pokemon began to converge on the Abomasnow. For the first time yet, there was a look of panic in the Abomasnow’s eyes as it began to blow a powerful Blizzard to try and defend itself. It was no match however, as the army of ice Pokemon breathed their own flurry of Powder Snows, Icy Winds, Frost Breaths, and Ice Beams at the behemoth.

“I guess the ice Pokemon are upset at their leader for nearly destroying their home,” Athena commented as the Abomasnow’s body began to freeze solid. Pieces of rock seemed to chip off of its body, causing it to shrink in size to that of a normal Mega Abomasnow, although still slightly larger and still in its Mega form. Once the Abomasnow was completely encased in ice, the Pokemon began firing a path made out of Ice Beams into the cave from which Abomasnow came. They then worked together and pushed the frozen beast onto the ice and let gravity take over as the icy slide took it back into the mountain’s depths. With the Abomasnow now put on ice hopefully for a long time, the wild Pokemon began to slowly disperse into their natural environment. The avalanche coming from higher up the mountain seemed to have finally quieted and the Hail trickling down from above seemed to have finally ceased. All that remained was Glalie, Froslass, and a couple of Vanilluxe. Glalie looked at Athena and then to the rest of the trainers and gave an apologetic look, hoping to let bygones be bygones. They then conjured up a small pile of icy rocks and crystals and left them in front of the trainers before departing into the cave’s depths as well, presumable to lock away the Abomasnow and hibernate until next winter.

“We did it!” Athena called out, falling back into the snow as she let out a sigh of relief and made a small snow angel. Sitting back up, she thanked her Mawile for her hard work and recalled her into her Pokeball. “I can’t thank all of you enough for everything you’ve done,” she said, addressing the trainers. “You all have helped save my home. You’ve saved everyone’s home. I can’t thank you all enough!” As she wiped a tear from her eyes, Athena looked out at the remains of the battlefield. Caught up in the action of the battle, a giant boulder caused from a Continental Crush remained front and center. The exterior of the stone had chipped away, revealing a crystalline mineral underneath that shone an icy blue. It was cold to the touch and seemed to emanate a powerful energy. It was too heavy to bring with them, but Athena loaded up all of the smaller crystals into a bag. “Let’s head back down the mountain where it’s safer. I’m sure the townsfolk would like to thank you too!”

~~~~~~~

Battered and weary, the trainers made their way back to the waterfall, where Marina and Jet were waiting for them. They were relieved to see that everyone was in one piece and congratulated them as they listened to the story of the epic battle that had taken place. The sun was out in full force now, and much of the snow and ice had already begun to melt across the area. After everyone was loaded back onto the raft, Marina’s Gyarados and Jet’s Drifblim took them back down the falls, where they were greeted by Samuel and Madoka.

Eventually everyone had been loaded up into the carriages where they were taken back towards town. Much of the snow across the plains had already turned to slush, the mysterious force of nature disappearing nearly as fast as it arrived. Once they arrived back in town, the trainers were met by a swarm of people, who roared with cheers upon their return. Arriving into the town square, the trainers were let out where doctors and nurses quickly tended to everyone’s injuries and healed everyone’s Pokemon. Hot cocoa was passed out to everyone, from a group of citizens led by none other than bundled-up Primrose, who had recovered enough to walk. She might have still been fairly weak, but she was going to express her gratitude no matter what.

“Everyone gather ‘round,” Athena called out as she brought forth the loot she had collected up at the mountain. “On behalf of everyone who calls this mountain home, I would like to thank all of you for your valiant effort from the bottom of my heart.” The gathering of citizens erupted in applause once again. “As thanks, I would like to give all of you a piece of the parting gift that Glalie left us with,” Athena said, laying out an assortment of items for the trainers. “Hopefully we can see you return to the Cloud Garden again on better terms; when everything isn’t frozen and covered in snow!” As the trainers gazed across the shiny assortment of crystals and rocks, the sunlight from the sky above reflected off of them in a beautiful glimmer of lights. It was a bright new day for the Cloud Garden, a day that the citizens of Galea Town would never forget.

All trainers have been awarded the following items:
Never-Melt Ice x1
Icy Rock x1
Ice Stone x1
TM Hail x1
Trainers may also select ONE of the following packages:

Sitting back up, she thanked her Mawile for her hard work and recalled her into her Pokeball. “I can’t thank all of you enough for everything you’ve done,” she said, addressing the trainers. “You all have helped save my home. You’ve saved everyone’s home. I can’t thank you all enough!” As she wiped a tear from her eyes, Athena looked out at the remains of the battlefield. Caught up in the action of the battle, a giant boulder caused from a Continental Crush remained front and center. The exterior of the stone had chipped away, revealing a crystalline mineral underneath that shone an icy blue. It was cold to the touch and seemed to emanate a powerful energy. It was too heavy to bring with them, but Athena loaded up all of the smaller crystals into a bag. “Let’s head back down the mountain where it’s safer. I’m sure the townsfolk would like to thank you too!”

For all of their hard work, the following Pokemon have received levels (if a Pokemon is lv.100, you shall receive an equivalent number of rare candies to levels received):


~~~~~~~

Battered and weary, the trainers made their way back to the waterfall, where Marina and Jet were waiting for them. They were relieved to see that everyone was in one piece and congratulated them as they listened to the story of the epic battle that had taken place. The sun was out in full force now, and much of the snow and ice had already begun to melt across the area. After everyone was loaded back onto the raft, Marina’s Gyarados and Jet’s Drifblim took them back down the falls, where they were greeted by Samuel and Madoka.

Eventually everyone had been loaded up into the carriages where they were taken back towards town. Much of the snow across the plains had already turned to slush, the mysterious force of nature disappearing nearly as fast as it arrived. Once they arrived back in town, the trainers were met by a swarm of people, who roared with cheers upon their return. Arriving into the town square, the trainers were let out where doctors and nurses quickly tended to everyone’s injuries and healed everyone’s Pokemon. Hot cocoa was passed out to everyone, from a group of citizens led by none other than bundled-up Primrose, who had recovered enough to walk. She might have still been fairly weak, but she was going to express her gratitude no matter what.

“Everyone gather ‘round,” Athena called out as she brought forth the loot she had collected up at the mountain. “On behalf of everyone who calls this mountain home, I would like to thank all of you for your valiant effort from the bottom of my heart.” The gathering of citizens erupted in applause once again. “As thanks, I would like to give all of you a piece of the parting gift that Glalie left us with,” Athena said, laying out an assortment of items for the trainers. “Hopefully we can see you return to the Cloud Garden again on better terms; when everything isn’t frozen and covered in snow!” As the trainers gazed across the shiny assortment of crystals and rocks, the sunlight from the sky above reflected off of them in a beautiful glimmer of lights. It was a bright new day for the Cloud Garden, a day that the citizens of Galea Town would never forget.

All trainers have been awarded the following items:
Never-Melt Ice x1
Icy Rock x1
Ice Stone x1
TM Hail x1
Trainers may also select ONE of the following packages:

Package 3: TM Collection Consisting of:
TM Ice Beam x1

I want to take a minute and thank everyone for participating in this campaign over the last three months. It was quite the grind, but we made it through! I especially want to thank Patches and morningstar for all of their hard work in assisting me with this campaign. There is absolutely no way I would have been able to tell this story without their help and their contributions. I really had a lot of fun coming up with this story, as it helped me create quite a bit of world-building for this zone I am so proud of, and so I hope you all had just as much fun participating in it. If you aren’t already adventuring in the Cloud Garden, I hope to see you there in the future, and if not maybe we will get the chance to update you again in a future campaign! Thank you all!

Chroma had looked around in a more-than-slight panic as she desperately grasped at multiple pokeballs when the army of Ice Types suddenly appeared over the ridge. There was little chance that the trainers would be able to win now, especially since these foes arrived just as a large swath of their pokemon had just fallen all at once. The rules hardly meant a dang thing when it came to fighting for one's own life, so she doubted that anyone would complain if she used more than one to cover their retreat, if that was even possible at this point. "I refuse to go down here..." she muttered through grit teeth.

Such concerns had ultimately proved to be moot, however, when the army unexpectedly turned on the abomasnow, barraging it with intense waves of cold air that even the frozen behemoth couldn't endure directly anymore. Once their previous leader was disposed of, the mass of frosty critters disappeared just as suddenly as they had arrived, leaving the defending force to stand dumbfounded in the snow-covered clearing.

Both sides were undoubtedly tired out after the long day of fighting, though Chroma couldn't help but wonder what the Ice Types were doing to unwind as she sipped on her much-needed mug of hot chocolate. Certainly, they weren't comfortable with sitting around a bonfire- that'd probably have the opposite effect on them. "I'd better figure that out sooner than later," she stated plainly as she looked at the pokeball in her hand. "This guy's too precious to make uncomfortable every waking moment, after all." She'd probably stay in town for a little bit- this day had put her at high risk of catching a cold, and it wouldn't be very wise to travel in that condition, after all!

In the meantime, she'd have to figure out what to do with all the goodies the glalie had left them. This evening sure was full of surprises...

Jayson breathed a sigh of relief as the Abomasnow went down, he knew Sigurd had played a hand in bringing the beast down, however he couldn't help but feel a little disappointed. Sigurd had fallen in the fight, although the Gallade soon came too, he couldn't break the feeling that he had failed one of his most trusted partners.

"It's alright Jayson", conveyed Sigurd as he slowly dragged himself out of the snow, "that Abomasnow was unlike anything we have ever faced." Jayson rushed to the Gallade's side, quickly putting his arm around the Psychic type to support him.

"We weren't strong enough", Jayson sighed, "both you and Spartacus were knocked unconscious, some trainers didn't even lose one Pokemon!" Jayson clenched his fist, he couldn't stand it. "We need to train harder, we need to get stronger." Sigurd didn't reply, he was far too exhausted, but Jayson could tell by their mental link that the Gallade agreed with him.

They made their way back into town with the rest of the group. Sigurd and Spartacus were treated and healed, thankfully their was no long term injuries from the encounter. Jayson met with a man who had captured a Cubchoo while protecting the town, he was happy to part with the bear, much to Jayson's pleasure. They were rewarded for their efforts, a handful of gifts that Jayson was pleased to receive. Most importantly he managed to get his hands on another Z Crystal, Icium Z which would come in handy considering he had recently added some Ice types to his team.

As everyone started to go their separate ways, Jayson retrieved his Pokegear from his bag and called Valka. "Hey sweetie", Valka had remained at their new base to oversee construction and ensure their Pokemon continued training. "Sorry I haven't called, the situation was a little worse than I expected."

"Well at least I know you're safe now!" Their was a touch of anger in Valka's voice, but Jayson knew it was simply her being worried. "Will you be home soon? The base is coming along nicely."

Jayson sighed, "unfortunately not right now baby, we need to do a bit more work here. Step up the training for all the Pokemon, we need to get stronger, in case something like this happens again."

"Are you alright hun? It sounds like something has gotten too you?" She was spot on, even without seeing him she could tell when he wasn't feeling the best.

"I'll be fine, just need a bit of time, love you honey, I'll be home soon."

"I love you too", Valka replied, hanging up shortly after.

Jayson recalled Sigurd into his Pokeball and began to walk out of the town. He had no real idea of where he was going, but he knew he needed some time to clear his mind.

Abomasnow was not letting up, it was completely ignoring the trainers and their Pokemon in order to take out the mountain in hopes of everyone being taken out along with it. Megas the Golett wasn't about to let that happen and even risked putting themselves in harm's way in order to stop it. They charged around to Abomasnow's front, doing their best to dodge the pieces of mountain that were crashing down and kicked at the ground in order to hurl Mud at the Abomasnow in hopes of Slapping it in the face with it to blind it a bit. It was no use though, through all of the debris, all of the mud was not able to reach the enraged Pokemon's face and only small splatters managed to land. The Avalanche was getting worse, Megas was having a hard time dodging it and knew they needed to do what they could and get out of there fast. They decided to charge in and use their Power-Up Punch on its foot since its arms were impossible to reach with how much they were moving and slamming into the mountain. This attack almost seemed like no use, it must be hurting the Abomasnow but it was hard to tell. Megas wasn't going to give up and kept on hitting but suddenly Abomasnow lifted its large foot and kicked Megas across the snow. They bounced through the snow and crashed into the side of the mountain, the debris began to pile up on top of them and for a moment they thought they were done for. But, they couldn't let it end this way. While under the debris, their trainer Bill activated the power of their z-crystal and this gave Megas the boost they needed.

Megas felt a new kind of energy flowing through them and wasted no time releasing it, causing Abomasnow to have to endure a barrage of a Never-Ending Nightmares. A strange and haunting energy began to surround the beast and flowed into it. The Abomasnow let out an awful sounding scream as it was being mentally tormented by whatever demons were just unleashed on it. Megas was still under the debris but was proud that they finally managed to be noticed. Abomasnow was no longer hitting the mountain because they were too busy clutching thier head in agony. Sigurd the Gallade knew that this was the ideal time to attack with his own z-move. He kicks off the ground and soars up into the air at an astonishing rate, creating a very large amount of distance between him and the ground. Once he lines himself up, he plummets down right toward Abomasnow. Before his attack makes contact, another airborne opponent begins to put up a fight of their own. Cirrus the Swablu swoops in and smashes into Abomasnow's head with Aerial Ace and instantly follows that up with an Air Cutter. They were still clutching their head at the time, but that attack snapped them out of it. Once Abomasnow opened its eyes they immediately looked around for the one who dared attack it, figuring it came from above it looked directly overhead and Swaggered at the first thing it saw, which was Sigurd. Sigurd's attack was now boosted even further and in the next instant, his Supersonic Airstrike made contact with Abomasnow.

The attack was powerful, so powerful that the ground beneath Abomasnow's body shattered and Abomasnow was forced to be half underground. The alteration of the earth also created an earthquake that ripped across the ground and damaged Choux, Vander, Khione, Pouli, as well as Megas who was still covered in debris and the quake shook some more to fall on them, completely knocking them out. The extremely powered up move definitely hurt Abomasnow but at the cost of hurting many of the Pokemon who were grounded as well. Sigurd knew he needed to get out of there but his mind wasn't thinking clearly, the confusion that Abomasnow had caused him was clouding his thoughts. In an attempt to flee, he used his Teleport but in his confused state, teleported to the last place he wanted to be, right in front of Abomasnow. "SNOOOOOOOOW!!!" Abomasnow roared with pure anger and dug its hands into the earth, lifting itself out of the crater at a great speed and slamming right into Sigurd with a Wood Hammer that contained all of the rage it had built inside while also blasting him with a Blizzard. Sigurd was quickly overwhelmed, it was all too much, causing the Gallade to drop into the snow knocked out, but his efforts certainly left an impression on all of those around.

Cirrus was somewhat nervous, he had a similar strategy and after seeing how things went over with Sigurd, going through with it was a bit intimidating. However, Abomasnow began to slam into the side of the mountain once again, it was so enraged that unless everyone wanted to die, everyone would have no choice but to go through with such tactics despite the potential consequences. Cirrus took a deep breath and then began to soar high into the sky. While Cirrus was preparing for his final attack, Choux the Snubbull was ready to show Abomasnow what he was made of. Despite being so small, he had a lot of confidence in this moment. Using his Feint Attack he gets in there nice and close and hits Abomasnow. Abomasnow is extra sensitive to everything going on around it at this point so immediately its attention is brought toward the little feisty Pokemon as he sinks his Flaming Fangs into Abomasnow's side. Abomasnow huffs at such a small Pokemon trying to get the better of it and blows an Icy Wind at Choux, the wind is too much for Choux and he's forced to let go and fly through the air, landing inside of the crater that Abomasnow's body had created earlier. Abomasnow then uses its Blizzard to rapidly fill the hole in an attempt to quickly bury Choux inside of the crater.

Choux was completely submerged in snow but before it got unbearably deep, Cirrus was ready to give Abomasnow another beat down. Cirrus had been diving through the air and finally made contact with his own Supersonic Skystrike. Just like before, the incredibly powerful move hit Abomasnow and it was forced into the earth, only this time it didn't go as deep or cause an earthquake since Cirrus' attack hadn't been raised as high as Sigurd's but it still packed quite a punch. Abomasnow almost immediately went to retaliate with the intent of hurling Ice Shards in the air at Cirrus but this was prevented by a very upset Snubbull. A sudden burst of powerful energy surged through the snow that was once burying Choux, opening up a hole so that he was no longer buried and headed right for Abomasnow. The energy was powerful and upon contact gave Abomasnow an All-Out Pummeling. The Mega Pokemon's entire body was forced against the mountain. The crash caused part of the mountain to break off and an Avalanche proceeded to fall. The trainers as well as their Pokemon began to run to get out of the way but Khione and Vander were slightly behind the rest and got hit with some of the debris.

Abomasnow burst out of the debris that had fallen on top of it from the Avalanche. Its eyes almost appeared to be blood red from the rage it felt which caused its appearance to look even more gruesome. Vander the Zangoose was tired of all the damage he was forced to endure, between the earthquake and the Avalanche he was definitely sore in a few places. He went ahead and put all of that anger into his fist, causing it to burn with flames of rage as he charged right up to Abomasnow and Punched it with all of that raging Fire. Abomasnow was not impressed and it was getting ready to whack the Zangoose away but suddenly it was whacked from another side by a Pursuit. Khione the Sneasel was also not very happy since she had to deal with the exact same treatment as Vander. The two Pokemon glance at each other briefly and then turn their attention back toward Abomasnow. Then almost simultaneously, they attack. Khione hit's Abomasnow hard with a Power-Up Punch and Vander who was on the other side leaps toward Abomasnow and smashes into it with a Low Kick. The sudden impact of the move causes the giant Abomasnow to lose its balance and suddenly it is falling over right toward Khione! Khione can see this and knows she doesn't have enough time to get out of the way so she readies her Iron Tail and whacks it as hard as she can, hoping that her move would have enough impact to stabilize the beast. Unfortunately, it does not and next thing she knows she is completely crushed by a several hundred pound Pokemon and due to her tiny frame she is knocked out instantly.

Vander runs in while Abomasnow is down and quickly slashes at it with a Fury Cutter for good measure before booking it out of there. After seeing everything that Abomasnow had done, no way was he going to stick around long enough for him to get back up. Sal the Salamence began circling around Abomasnow while in the air and began to blow a Firestream at it while it's still down. Despite the flames pelting it, Abomasnow still manages to get back on its feet and now has its eyes set on the annoying fire breathing dragon that is circling around its head. Kimball the Vanillite attempts to Astonish the giant but it doesn't flinch in the slightest. Its eyes are locked on that Salamence. Kimball can see that this is probably for the best, there isn't a single Pokemon out here that wants Abomasnow focusing on them directly. Abomasnow lets out another scream and then makes the Blizzard rage around Sal, the super effective and extremely powerful move was definitely taking its toll rather quickly. Sal doesn't waver, it may hurt but there are lives that depend on this. She moves onto her next attack and begins to blow her Dragon Breath at Abomasnow.

Just before Abomasnow pelts Sal with another one of its super effective moves, suddenly it is being overwhelmed by even more flames and these flames aren't coming from Sal. It was hit by a Blast that was Burning it terribly. Some of the small patches of fur that it had left were quickly melting off and the snow surrounding it melted instantly. Its attention on Sal was finally broken and now it was eyeing up Pouli the Mega Houndoom. Malcolm the Seviper tried to get in close while its attention was elsewhere and stabbed the back of Abomasnow's leg with a Poison Sting. Abomasnow seemed unfazed as it aimed itself perfectly and then lowered its head and began to charge so fast that many were shocked, it was hard to believe that something so huge would move at such a speed, especially after its leg was just stabbed with venom. Before she could even react, suddenly Pouli was being Bashed extremely hard by Abomasnow's Skull. Pouli flew through the air and upon landing in the snow it was clear that by some miracle she had managed to Endure the hit. Abomasnow wasn't about to let that stand though and prepared to inflict more pain but Kimball could see the urgency of the situation and used that moment to release her Signal Beam/Flash Cannon combo. This combination was powerful and even managed to make Abomasnow slide across the snow a few feet.

Before the light from the attack disappeared, Pouli smacked Abomasnow with a very hard hit before quickly Returning safely to her trainer. Kimball also knew that she was going to be in big trouble if Abomasnow figured out that the powerful beam of light came from her so she used her type as an advantage and quickly dropped down and buried herself in the snow. When Abomasnow turned around, the first thing it saw was Sal who was still flying overhead. As soon as they locked eyes, Sal blew a Flamethrower right at Abomasnow. At the same time, Malcolm blew his own Flamethrower at Abomasnow as well. The combination of the two fire attacks somehow enraged Abomasnow even further and it began to Stomp about randomly, crushing Kimball who was hidden in the snow, knocking her out. Malcolm knew he was dangerously close to getting stomped himself and decided to quickly retreat, but before he got away the Abomasnow's foot came down on his tail, holding him in place. Abomasnow was tired of all the heat being forced on it from multiple directions. Having observed how effective its last attack on the flying dragon was, it figured that sticking with that couldn't go wrong. Sal was blasted by another additional Blizzard on top of the blizzard that was already constantly blowing, Abomasnow also made sure that this boosted Blizzard hit the snake it had trapped beneath its foot, and between the crushing weight of Abomasnow's foot and the powerful storm, Malcolm passed out. Being pelted by ice was also quickly overwhelming Sal but she was fighting to hang on and then suddenly the blizzard returned to its normal strength and Sal breathed a sigh of relief. Unfortunately, that relief was felt too soon because an Ice Shard flew through the air and smashed directly into her, knocking her out of the sky and into the snow on the ground unconscious.

The abomination was a horrifying sight as its body was charred black and its eyes glowed a fierce blue as it continued to summon an Avalanche to attempt to snuff out all life around it. “We have to end this now! Go Artemis, use Flash Cannon!” Athena yelled out to her Mawile, who stood in front in an attempt to protect the Pokemon nearby. Athena’s Mawile opened the jaw-like appendage on her head wide and a powerful silvery beam shot out at the Abomasnow, who countered with its own Ice Beam. The two beams pushed back on each other, neither side relenting in power as they struggled to push the other one over the top. After a few moments however, Mawile’s Flash Cannon began dwindling in power and the Ice Beam pushed it back closer and closer to Mawile’s body. Mawile yelled as her beam gave out, getting struck by Abomasnow’s unrelenting Ice Beam.

“Artemis!” Athena yelled, concerned for her Mawile. She took a big hit but still stood strong. “Metal Burst!” Artemis yelled in unison with her trainer as the Mawile began glowing red, pulsing with energy. A massive red beam shot out of the Mawile’s jaw-like horn, blasting through the Abomasnow’s Ice Beam and ramming into the Abomasnow at full power. The beastly Abomasnow let out a booming, pained roar as an explosion of light erupted from its body. As the smoke and snow slowly dissipated from the air, the trainers could see Abomasnow lying face down in the snow. All was quiet, save for the occasional rumbling of rocks tumbling down from the mountain above, and people were beginning to wonder if the fight was finally over.

However, to everyone’s dismay, the Mega Abomasnow began to rustle as it slowly got up to its hands and feet. The creature looked completely exhausted, but still possessed a fierce determination to keep going. A commotion of noise suddenly erupted from all around the area as a number of ice type Pokemon began to appear on the scene. Vanillites, Vanillishes, and Vanilluxes floated in the air alongside Cryogonal. Sneasels, Vulpix, Swinub, and Cubchoo watched on as well as the Weavile from the Oran Orchard. Several Smoochum, Snorunt, and Snover showed up while some Delibird fluttered down from above. All of the Pokemon seemed to be in an uproar, and the trainers feared the worst; a much bigger and more drawn-out fight coming up as they were completely surrounded by the army of ice Pokemon.

Abomasnow seemed a bit more confident now that its troops had returned to its side. “Snowww!” it bellowed, calling them forth to attack the trainers. However, the Pokemon remained where they stood. “Gla… lie…” The Glalie from the waterfall floated forward, back in its normal form as Froslass stuck by his side. Glalie looked up and around at the mountainside, as it looked like the aftermath of a warzone. Several rocks continued to fall from above. “Glalie!” it called out again, and the ice Pokemon began to converge on the Abomasnow. For the first time yet, there was a look of panic in the Abomasnow’s eyes as it began to blow a powerful Blizzard to try and defend itself. It was no match however, as the army of ice Pokemon breathed their own flurry of Powder Snows, Icy Winds, Frost Breaths, and Ice Beams at the behemoth.

“I guess the ice Pokemon are upset at their leader for nearly destroying their home,” Athena commented as the Abomasnow’s body began to freeze solid. Pieces of rock seemed to chip off of its body, causing it to shrink in size to that of a normal Mega Abomasnow, although still slightly larger and still in its Mega form. Once the Abomasnow was completely encased in ice, the Pokemon began firing a path made out of Ice Beams into the cave from which Abomasnow came. They then worked together and pushed the frozen beast onto the ice and let gravity take over as the icy slide took it back into the mountain’s depths. With the Abomasnow now put on ice hopefully for a long time, the wild Pokemon began to slowly disperse into their natural environment. The avalanche coming from higher up the mountain seemed to have finally quieted and the Hail trickling down from above seemed to have finally ceased. All that remained was Glalie, Froslass, and a couple of Vanilluxe. Glalie looked at Athena and then to the rest of the trainers and gave an apologetic look, hoping to let bygones be bygones. They then conjured up a small pile of icy rocks and crystals and left them in front of the trainers before departing into the cave’s depths as well, presumable to lock away the Abomasnow and hibernate until next winter.

“We did it!” Athena called out, falling back into the snow as she let out a sigh of relief and made a small snow angel. Sitting back up, she thanked her Mawile for her hard work and recalled her into her Pokeball. “I can’t thank all of you enough for everything you’ve done,” she said, addressing the trainers. “You all have helped save my home. You’ve saved everyone’s home. I can’t thank you all enough!” As she wiped a tear from her eyes, Athena looked out at the remains of the battlefield. Caught up in the action of the battle, a giant boulder caused from a Continental Crush remained front and center. The exterior of the stone had chipped away, revealing a crystalline mineral underneath that shone an icy blue. It was cold to the touch and seemed to emanate a powerful energy. It was too heavy to bring with them, but Athena loaded up all of the smaller crystals into a bag. “Let’s head back down the mountain where it’s safer. I’m sure the townsfolk would like to thank you too!”

For all of their hard work, the following Pokemon have received levels (if a Pokemon is lv.100, you shall receive an equivalent number of rare candies to levels received):

Battered and weary, the trainers made their way back to the waterfall, where Marina and Jet were waiting for them. They were relieved to see that everyone was in one piece and congratulated them as they listened to the story of the epic battle that had taken place. The sun was out in full force now, and much of the snow and ice had already begun to melt across the area. After everyone was loaded back onto the raft, Marina’s Gyarados and Jet’s Drifblim took them back down the falls, where they were greeted by Samuel and Madoka.

Eventually everyone had been loaded up into the carriages where they were taken back towards town. Much of the snow across the plains had already turned to slush, the mysterious force of nature disappearing nearly as fast as it arrived. Once they arrived back in town, the trainers were met by a swarm of people, who roared with cheers upon their return. Arriving into the town square, the trainers were let out where doctors and nurses quickly tended to everyone’s injuries and healed everyone’s Pokemon. Hot cocoa was passed out to everyone, from a group of citizens led by none other than bundled-up Primrose, who had recovered enough to walk. She might have still been fairly weak, but she was going to express her gratitude no matter what.

“Everyone gather ‘round,” Athena called out as she brought forth the loot she had collected up at the mountain. “On behalf of everyone who calls this mountain home, I would like to thank all of you for your valiant effort from the bottom of my heart.” The gathering of citizens erupted in applause once again. “As thanks, I would like to give all of you a piece of the parting gift that Glalie left us with,” Athena said, laying out an assortment of items for the trainers. “Hopefully we can see you return to the Cloud Garden again on better terms; when everything isn’t frozen and covered in snow!” As the trainers gazed across the shiny assortment of crystals and rocks, the sunlight from the sky above reflected off of them in a beautiful glimmer of lights. It was a bright new day for the Cloud Garden, a day that the citizens of Galea Town would never forget.

All trainers have been awarded the following items:
Never-Melt Ice x1
Icy Rock x1
Ice Stone x1

I don't want to die in here.

They had survived; that was the miracle of it. Six unfortunate Pokémon, under the care of an inept loser from Johto. Kai and her children, who had refused to leave Tate's side, should have died as a matter of that lack of proficiency; Pouli, too. Pahalo and Kauka, having taken off well before the final battle had begun, would perhaps have lived through the event regardless, although it wasn't as though Pahalo had not seen her own share of danger, largely due to her keeper's magnificent failure as a trainer and as a human being.

When the clouds dissipated and the sun came out, it was as though Solgaleo himself had embraced them. Sitting in the snow among countless other people and their exhausted Pokémon, Tate stroked Pouli's fur, the Houndoom having all but collapsed once the energy fueling her mega evolution had been exhausted. Her diaphragm rose and fell rapidly as she panted, flat pink tongue extended in an effort to lower her internal body temperature to something more manageable. Tate wondered as to how much metabolic heat must be produced before it becomes significant to a Fire-type Pokémon.

The Ice-types -- having made their appearance -- had all but disappeared entirely. Did the Glalie and Froslass know Ulupi‘i? (This was the name Tate had decided to give to the Snorunt captured the day before, at the waterfall.) Would they miss her? Would she miss them? Is this where she would have rather stayed? It was something of a moral dilemma, not that Tate had much of a chance to contemplate it. The other trainers were beginning to pack up, a few already meandering back down the trail towards the base camp, when -- for just a split second -- something eclipsed the sun.

Take looked up, squinting into the bright light, as two distant flecks spiraled downwards, growing in size util it became apparent that it was a pair of birds, their wings curved upwards to catch the dense thermal drafts. That they needed to stay upright. It happened in a smooth motion; Tate stood up as they swooped down, heavy bodies coming to land in the snow.


"...Kauka?" Tate questioned. Of the two Mandibuzz, one was known and one was strangely familiar. The orange-dappled bird hissed warmly and hopped through the dense snow towards the trainer, beautiful blue eyes glittering like sapphires. At Tate's feet she threw her wings open proudly. Pahalo watched on, looking about as smug as a bird could. This was definitely Kauka. "Shit, you got big."

Too tired to be as enthusiastic as the situation probably warranted, Tate gave Kauka's bald head a single pat. At that moment Kai -- evidently done with her harrowing family time -- appeared with her children in tow, and flung her heavy body heavily against her trainer's legs. She was ready to get the hell out of here.

"Let's go, guys," Tate agreed, tiredly. It took a couple of minutes to work through all of the Luxury Balls, but in the end, all but Kai were turned to their capsules. Once the balls were returned to their belt clips, Tate stooped down, and picked Kai up, visibly struggling to carry the massive aquatic mammal. Kai looked absolutely thrilled with the development, body going limp in her trainer's arms. The walk down the mountain to the raft was a long one, but Tate didn't mind.

Kai grew from Lv. 50 to Lv. 52!

Pouli grew from Lv. 28 to Lv. 31!

Claiming the following items:
x01 Never-Melt Ice
x01 Icy Rock
x01 Ice Stone
x01 TM Hail

Abomasnow was not letting up, it was completely ignoring the trainers and their Pokemon in order to take out the mountain in hopes of everyone being taken out along with it. Megas the Golett wasn't about to let that happen and even risked putting themselves in harm's way in order to stop it. They charged around to Abomasnow's front, doing their best to dodge the pieces of mountain that were crashing down and kicked at the ground in order to hurl Mud at the Abomasnow in hopes of Slapping it in the face with it to blind it a bit. It was no use though, through all of the debris, all of the mud was not able to reach the enraged Pokemon's face and only small splatters managed to land. The Avalanche was getting worse, Megas was having a hard time dodging it and knew they needed to do what they could and get out of there fast. They decided to charge in and use their Power-Up Punch on its foot since its arms were impossible to reach with how much they were moving and slamming into the mountain. This attack almost seemed like no use, it must be hurting the Abomasnow but it was hard to tell. Megas wasn't going to give up and kept on hitting but suddenly Abomasnow lifted its large foot and kicked Megas across the snow. They bounced through the snow and crashed into the side of the mountain, the debris began to pile up on top of them and for a moment they thought they were done for. But, they couldn't let it end this way. While under the debris, their trainer Bill activated the power of their z-crystal and this gave Megas the boost they needed.

Megas felt a new kind of energy flowing through them and wasted no time releasing it, causing Abomasnow to have to endure a barrage of a Never-Ending Nightmares. A strange and haunting energy began to surround the beast and flowed into it. The Abomasnow let out an awful sounding scream as it was being mentally tormented by whatever demons were just unleashed on it. Megas was still under the debris but was proud that they finally managed to be noticed. Abomasnow was no longer hitting the mountain because they were too busy clutching thier head in agony. Sigurd the Gallade knew that this was the ideal time to attack with his own z-move. He kicks off the ground and soars up into the air at an astonishing rate, creating a very large amount of distance between him and the ground. Once he lines himself up, he plummets down right toward Abomasnow. Before his attack makes contact, another airborne opponent begins to put up a fight of their own. Cirrus the Swablu swoops in and smashes into Abomasnow's head with Aerial Ace and instantly follows that up with an Air Cutter. They were still clutching their head at the time, but that attack snapped them out of it. Once Abomasnow opened its eyes they immediately looked around for the one who dared attack it, figuring it came from above it looked directly overhead and Swaggered at the first thing it saw, which was Sigurd. Sigurd's attack was now boosted even further and in the next instant, his Supersonic Airstrike made contact with Abomasnow.

The attack was powerful, so powerful that the ground beneath Abomasnow's body shattered and Abomasnow was forced to be half underground. The alteration of the earth also created an earthquake that ripped across the ground and damaged Choux, Vander, Khione, Pouli, as well as Megas who was still covered in debris and the quake shook some more to fall on them, completely knocking them out. The extremely powered up move definitely hurt Abomasnow but at the cost of hurting many of the Pokemon who were grounded as well. Sigurd knew he needed to get out of there but his mind wasn't thinking clearly, the confusion that Abomasnow had caused him was clouding his thoughts. In an attempt to flee, he used his Teleport but in his confused state, teleported to the last place he wanted to be, right in front of Abomasnow. "SNOOOOOOOOW!!!" Abomasnow roared with pure anger and dug its hands into the earth, lifting itself out of the crater at a great speed and slamming right into Sigurd with a Wood Hammer that contained all of the rage it had built inside while also blasting him with a Blizzard. Sigurd was quickly overwhelmed, it was all too much, causing the Gallade to drop into the snow knocked out, but his efforts certainly left an impression on all of those around.

Cirrus was somewhat nervous, he had a similar strategy and after seeing how things went over with Sigurd, going through with it was a bit intimidating. However, Abomasnow began to slam into the side of the mountain once again, it was so enraged that unless everyone wanted to die, everyone would have no choice but to go through with such tactics despite the potential consequences. Cirrus took a deep breath and then began to soar high into the sky. While Cirrus was preparing for his final attack, Choux the Snubbull was ready to show Abomasnow what he was made of. Despite being so small, he had a lot of confidence in this moment. Using his Feint Attack he gets in there nice and close and hits Abomasnow. Abomasnow is extra sensitive to everything going on around it at this point so immediately its attention is brought toward the little feisty Pokemon as he sinks his Flaming Fangs into Abomasnow's side. Abomasnow huffs at such a small Pokemon trying to get the better of it and blows an Icy Wind at Choux, the wind is too much for Choux and he's forced to let go and fly through the air, landing inside of the crater that Abomasnow's body had created earlier. Abomasnow then uses its Blizzard to rapidly fill the hole in an attempt to quickly bury Choux inside of the crater.

Choux was completely submerged in snow but before it got unbearably deep, Cirrus was ready to give Abomasnow another beat down. Cirrus had been diving through the air and finally made contact with his own Supersonic Skystrike. Just like before, the incredibly powerful move hit Abomasnow and it was forced into the earth, only this time it didn't go as deep or cause an earthquake since Cirrus' attack hadn't been raised as high as Sigurd's but it still packed quite a punch. Abomasnow almost immediately went to retaliate with the intent of hurling Ice Shards in the air at Cirrus but this was prevented by a very upset Snubbull. A sudden burst of powerful energy surged through the snow that was once burying Choux, opening up a hole so that he was no longer buried and headed right for Abomasnow. The energy was powerful and upon contact gave Abomasnow an All-Out Pummeling. The Mega Pokemon's entire body was forced against the mountain. The crash caused part of the mountain to break off and an Avalanche proceeded to fall. The trainers as well as their Pokemon began to run to get out of the way but Khione and Vander were slightly behind the rest and got hit with some of the debris.

Abomasnow burst out of the debris that had fallen on top of it from the Avalanche. Its eyes almost appeared to be blood red from the rage it felt which caused its appearance to look even more gruesome. Vander the Zangoose was tired of all the damage he was forced to endure, between the earthquake and the Avalanche he was definitely sore in a few places. He went ahead and put all of that anger into his fist, causing it to burn with flames of rage as he charged right up to Abomasnow and Punched it with all of that raging Fire. Abomasnow was not impressed and it was getting ready to whack the Zangoose away but suddenly it was whacked from another side by a Pursuit. Khione the Sneasel was also not very happy since she had to deal with the exact same treatment as Vander. The two Pokemon glance at each other briefly and then turn their attention back toward Abomasnow. Then almost simultaneously, they attack. Khione hit's Abomasnow hard with a Power-Up Punch and Vander who was on the other side leaps toward Abomasnow and smashes into it with a Low Kick. The sudden impact of the move causes the giant Abomasnow to lose its balance and suddenly it is falling over right toward Khione! Khione can see this and knows she doesn't have enough time to get out of the way so she readies her Iron Tail and whacks it as hard as she can, hoping that her move would have enough impact to stabilize the beast. Unfortunately, it does not and next thing she knows she is completely crushed by a several hundred pound Pokemon and due to her tiny frame she is knocked out instantly.

Vander runs in while Abomasnow is down and quickly slashes at it with a Fury Cutter for good measure before booking it out of there. After seeing everything that Abomasnow had done, no way was he going to stick around long enough for him to get back up. Sal the Salamence began circling around Abomasnow while in the air and began to blow a Firestream at it while it's still down. Despite the flames pelting it, Abomasnow still manages to get back on its feet and now has its eyes set on the annoying fire breathing dragon that is circling around its head. Kimball the Vanillite attempts to Astonish the giant but it doesn't flinch in the slightest. Its eyes are locked on that Salamence. Kimball can see that this is probably for the best, there isn't a single Pokemon out here that wants Abomasnow focusing on them directly. Abomasnow lets out another scream and then makes the Blizzard rage around Sal, the super effective and extremely powerful move was definitely taking its toll rather quickly. Sal doesn't waver, it may hurt but there are lives that depend on this. She moves onto her next attack and begins to blow her Dragon Breath at Abomasnow.

Just before Abomasnow pelts Sal with another one of its super effective moves, suddenly it is being overwhelmed by even more flames and these flames aren't coming from Sal. It was hit by a Blast that was Burning it terribly. Some of the small patches of fur that it had left were quickly melting off and the snow surrounding it melted instantly. Its attention on Sal was finally broken and now it was eyeing up Pouli the Mega Houndoom. Malcolm the Seviper tried to get in close while its attention was elsewhere and stabbed the back of Abomasnow's leg with a Poison Sting. Abomasnow seemed unfazed as it aimed itself perfectly and then lowered its head and began to charge so fast that many were shocked, it was hard to believe that something so huge would move at such a speed, especially after its leg was just stabbed with venom. Before she could even react, suddenly Pouli was being Bashed extremely hard by Abomasnow's Skull. Pouli flew through the air and upon landing in the snow it was clear that by some miracle she had managed to Endure the hit. Abomasnow wasn't about to let that stand though and prepared to inflict more pain but Kimball could see the urgency of the situation and used that moment to release her Signal Beam/Flash Cannon combo. This combination was powerful and even managed to make Abomasnow slide across the snow a few feet.

Before the light from the attack disappeared, Pouli smacked Abomasnow with a very hard hit before quickly Returning safely to her trainer. Kimball also knew that she was going to be in big trouble if Abomasnow figured out that the powerful beam of light came from her so she used her type as an advantage and quickly dropped down and buried herself in the snow. When Abomasnow turned around, the first thing it saw was Sal who was still flying overhead. As soon as they locked eyes, Sal blew a Flamethrower right at Abomasnow. At the same time, Malcolm blew his own Flamethrower at Abomasnow as well. The combination of the two fire attacks somehow enraged Abomasnow even further and it began to Stomp about randomly, crushing Kimball who was hidden in the snow, knocking her out. Malcolm knew he was dangerously close to getting stomped himself and decided to quickly retreat, but before he got away the Abomasnow's foot came down on his tail, holding him in place. Abomasnow was tired of all the heat being forced on it from multiple directions. Having observed how effective its last attack on the flying dragon was, it figured that sticking with that couldn't go wrong. Sal was blasted by another additional Blizzard on top of the blizzard that was already constantly blowing, Abomasnow also made sure that this boosted Blizzard hit the snake it had trapped beneath its foot, and between the crushing weight of Abomasnow's foot and the powerful storm, Malcolm passed out. Being pelted by ice was also quickly overwhelming Sal but she was fighting to hang on and then suddenly the blizzard returned to its normal strength and Sal breathed a sigh of relief. Unfortunately, that relief was felt too soon because an Ice Shard flew through the air and smashed directly into her, knocking her out of the sky and into the snow on the ground unconscious.

The flames around his neck burned bright despite the strong winds. Gary started giving orders to Typhu who listened intently. Rorik and Guntz noticed the Fire-type newcomer to the field. Taking note of Typhu’s ability, Rorik directed Guntz to aim a Flamethrower in the Typhlosion’s direction. Typhu’s Flash Fire activated, and Guntz flames joined in with Typhu’s own. Typhu bounded toward Abomasnow. He reached the base of the Pokemon’s towering body and ducked his head to the ground. A huge, pillar of flame Erupted from Typhu’s back and scorched the length of Abomasnow. After the smoke cleared, Vi the Blaziken had joined Typhu’s side. The two Fire-starters turned to look at their trainers, an immense amount of trust in their eyes. The Firium Z on Gary and Hyrem’s Z-bracelet shimmered and glowed. The trainers brought their arms together in front of them, and an aura surrounded Typhu and Vi. As Gary and Hyrem brought down their arms for the final portion of the Z-move, the Typhlosion and Blaziken let out a triumphant battle cry. Typhu charged up a huge fireball, the flames surrounding him entirely. Vi called forth a similar amount of fire. The two locked eyes with each other, and their two fireballs meshed together to create one huge burning, star-like mass. Abomasnow brought an arm down to bat the fireball away in anger. The Z-move surged toward it, smashing into its huge body. For a moment, Abomasnow was obscured by a dome of flames and explosions. The fire cleared, sections of Abomasnow’s fur still smoldering. It took a deep breath in, wiped soot from its face, and blew a Blizzard at Typhu and Vi in disgust. The Fire-types braced themselves, trying their hardest to keep up their flames so they would not be frozen. Inspired by the spectacle of Fire-moves he had just witnessed, Calem the Caterpie tried out some moves of his own. He sprayed a Flamethrower at the base of one of Abomasnow’s legs. After already being burned, Abomasnow barely registered the pain. Adorned in an adorably fluffy bunny suit, Calem launched himself into the air. Abomasnow saw the tiniest speck fly above its head. Calem blew another Flamethrower, the steady stream reaching the tip of Abomasnow that was still partly covered in fur. The attack was just enough to burn up another patch of Abomasnow’s fur and grassy covering. It grumbled as it tried to surround itself with ice again, but almost nothing was sticking to its skin. The Bug-type Calem landed on the snow again, his mouth hurting from the Fire-type moves he had somehow conjured up. As he tried to recover, Abomasnow brought down a foot to Stomp the pest, and Liawe watched in horror as her Pokemon disappeared under the beast’s limb. Abomasnow moved its foot away, pleased that it had gotten rid of the Caterpie. A small pile of snow suddenly began to wiggle, and Calem popped his head out, still covered in a String Shot that he had used to propel himself off of Abomasnow and bury himself in the snow. Though he wasn’t smashed, it would be difficult for little Calem to dig himself out completely.

Geddy twitched his little tail back in forth to his own Metronome. A sparkling, Magic Coat suddenly surrounded the Tynamo, providing a barrier from any special effects that Abomasnow might try to throw at him. He continued moving his tail back and forth to his own rhythm, and soon found himself Chanting wishes of good Luck to the rest of his allies. Much like Athena’s Clefable at the Waterfall, Geddy was bringing the promise of protection against critical hits to everyone on the battlefield. He still had time for one last chance to see what his Metronome would bring. The Tynamo suddenly struck the ground, and several pillars of fire burst up from the ground. Though the Electric-type had little experience with fire moves, it was able to direct the Fire Pledge at Abomasnow. The pillars of fire surrounded one of Abomasnow’s legs, trapping it momentarily so it could not move to attack the mountain again. Newly evolved Maasa took advantage of his increased size and prepared itself to Endure any hits he might face. The Piloswine barreled toward Abomasnow to Take it Down. His new pair of tusks smashed into Abomasnow, followed crashing into it with his head. He took a moment to collect himself after the recoil, taking a few steps back. Abomasnow batted at the flames Geddy had created. Maasa threw himself into the Mega evolved Pokemon once more, recoiling this time from the impact of Double-Edge. Abomasnow swiped its huge across the ground, Punching Maasa and Geddy with an Icy fist. Maasa was able to barely hang on, struggling to lift himself up and return to his trainer. Geddy wasn’t so lucky, and the little Tynamo collapsed.

Mélina called out her Minior Catalina. The meteor Pokemon floated above its trainer and enjoyed a quick snack that made it feel much better. It was able to form a sturdy shield around itself once more, protecting its delicate core. It picked up more rocks, surrounding them with an Ancient Power before tossing them at Abomasnow. Abomasnow seemed to have thought that it was part of the mountain it was tearing apart rather than an attack from its annoying, tiny opponents. It reached for another section of the mountain but the rocks were drawn away from its claws. It looked up in confusion and noticed Catalina soaring high above, a large boulder forming above it. On the ground, Mélina had finished performing her Z-move, ending with a perfect twist of the hips and a strong pose that reflected the power of the earth. The boulder Catalina had created was now the size of Abomasnow, and it brought the Continent-like rock down to Crush its opponent. Abomasnow had no time to move out of the way. There was a huge explosion of dust and snow and Abomasnow found one of its arms trapped under the remainder of Catalina and Mélina’s Z-move. The Mega-evolved monster roared and tried to free itself, struggling under the weight of the huge rock.

Guntz approached Abomasnow, but instead of Smashing the Rock Abomasnow was trapped under, he brought a powerful fist to Abomasnow’s weakened body. Abomasnow was unable to move the Snorlax away before he smashed into Abomasnow once more. Helga saw an opening for her own moves, acknowledging Guntz before she took over and struck Abomasnow in the same place with Mega Punch. The Hariyama found a particularly weak spot, an open cut that had been cauterized with fire moves, and Jabbed into the wound with Poison. She then used the Force of striking Abomasnow with her Palm to move a safe distance away. A dark, purple streak Slashed through the air, bringing the power of darkness and Night with it. Abomasnow was shocked as Elenchos struck it across the face.

Keeping his distance, Nothung Blasted Abomasnow with Fire. The Infernape Focused his Fighting-type energy and sent it in a spherical Blast. Abomasnow noticed the attack coming its way and blew an Icy Wind to redirect it. It smashed into the rock covering its arm, destroying it just enough so that Abomasnow could free itself. With a roar, it began to bring its arms down in succession, Wood Hammering everything in front of it. Guntz and Helga were struck multiple times. The attacks came so quickly, Guntz and Helga were unable to stay conscious and defend themselves. Realizing it was his attack that had caused this, Nothung jumped in and let himself Overheat, hoping to send away further attacks from Abomasnow. He ended up being hit by a Wood Hammer himself, and although it wasn’t very effective, it definitely hurt. Like a falling star, Catalina floated down between Abomasnow and the Pokemon being attacked. Right as Abomasnow brought a fist down to crush the Minior, Catalina Self-destructed, sacrificing itself for the sake of its teammates. The explosion gave Guntz, Helga, and Nothung enough time to move far away from Abomasnow and back to their trainers. Catalina, core exposed, fell to the ground as it was knocked out from the blast.

Mega Abomasnow, recoiling from the blast, covered its face in its hands. The icicles on its back had chunks blown out of them. It suddenly removed its hands from its huge face and roared. Ice Shards rained over the entire battlefield, huge sections of ice spearing themselves into the ground. It turned back to the mountain, grabbing a huge chunk of it and hurling it in an Avalanche toward the Pokemon still standing. Rocks rained down on Elenchos, Vi, and Nothung, and their trainers found their Pokemon knocked out as the move finished.

Abomasnow bellowed loudly as rocks and ice continued to tumble down from the cliffs above. The abomination was a horrifying sight as its body was charred black and its eyes glowed a fierce blue as it continued to summon an Avalanche to attempt to snuff out all life around it. “We have to end this now! Go Artemis, use Flash Cannon!” Athena yelled out to her Mawile, who stood in front in an attempt to protect the Pokemon nearby. Athena’s Mawile opened the jaw-like appendage on her head wide and a powerful silvery beam shot out at the Abomasnow, who countered with its own Ice Beam. The two beams pushed back on each other, neither side relenting in power as they struggled to push the other one over the top. After a few moments however, Mawile’s Flash Cannon began dwindling in power and the Ice Beam pushed it back closer and closer to Mawile’s body. Mawile yelled as her beam gave out, getting struck by Abomasnow’s unrelenting Ice Beam.

“Artemis!” Athena yelled, concerned for her Mawile. She took a big hit but still stood strong. “Metal Burst!” Artemis yelled in unison with her trainer as the Mawile began glowing red, pulsing with energy. A massive red beam shot out of the Mawile’s jaw-like horn, blasting through the Abomasnow’s Ice Beam and ramming into the Abomasnow at full power. The beastly Abomasnow let out a booming, pained roar as an explosion of light erupted from its body. As the smoke and snow slowly dissipated from the air, the trainers could see Abomasnow lying face down in the snow. All was quiet, save for the occasional rumbling of rocks tumbling down from the mountain above, and people were beginning to wonder if the fight was finally over.

However, to everyone’s dismay, the Mega Abomasnow began to rustle as it slowly got up to its hands and feet. The creature looked completely exhausted, but still possessed a fierce determination to keep going. A commotion of noise suddenly erupted from all around the area as a number of ice type Pokemon began to appear on the scene. Vanillites, Vanillishes, and Vanilluxes floated in the air alongside Cryogonal. Sneasels, Vulpix, Swinub, and Cubchoo watched on as well as the Weavile from the Oran Orchard. Several Smoochum, Snorunt, and Snover showed up while some Delibird fluttered down from above. All of the Pokemon seemed to be in an uproar, and the trainers feared the worst; a much bigger and more drawn-out fight coming up as they were completely surrounded by the army of ice Pokemon.

Abomasnow seemed a bit more confident now that its troops had returned to its side. “Snowww!” it bellowed, calling them forth to attack the trainers. However, the Pokemon remained where they stood. “Gla… lie…” The Glalie from the waterfall floated forward, back in its normal form as Froslass stuck by his side. Glalie looked up and around at the mountainside, as it looked like the aftermath of a warzone. Several rocks continued to fall from above. “Glalie!” it called out again, and the ice Pokemon began to converge on the Abomasnow. For the first time yet, there was a look of panic in the Abomasnow’s eyes as it began to blow a powerful Blizzard to try and defend itself. It was no match however, as the army of ice Pokemon breathed their own flurry of Powder Snows, Icy Winds, Frost Breaths, and Ice Beams at the behemoth.

“I guess the ice Pokemon are upset at their leader for nearly destroying their home,” Athena commented as the Abomasnow’s body began to freeze solid. Pieces of rock seemed to chip off of its body, causing it to shrink in size to that of a normal Mega Abomasnow, although still slightly larger and still in its Mega form. Once the Abomasnow was completely encased in ice, the Pokemon began firing a path made out of Ice Beams into the cave from which Abomasnow came. They then worked together and pushed the frozen beast onto the ice and let gravity take over as the icy slide took it back into the mountain’s depths. With the Abomasnow now put on ice hopefully for a long time, the wild Pokemon began to slowly disperse into their natural environment. The avalanche coming from higher up the mountain seemed to have finally quieted and the Hail trickling down from above seemed to have finally ceased. All that remained was Glalie, Froslass, and a couple of Vanilluxe. Glalie looked at Athena and then to the rest of the trainers and gave an apologetic look, hoping to let bygones be bygones. They then conjured up a small pile of icy rocks and crystals and left them in front of the trainers before departing into the cave’s depths as well, presumable to lock away the Abomasnow and hibernate until next winter.

“We did it!” Athena called out, falling back into the snow as she let out a sigh of relief and made a small snow angel. Sitting back up, she thanked her Mawile for her hard work and recalled her into her Pokeball. “I can’t thank all of you enough for everything you’ve done,” she said, addressing the trainers. “You all have helped save my home. You’ve saved everyone’s home. I can’t thank you all enough!” As she wiped a tear from her eyes, Athena looked out at the remains of the battlefield. Caught up in the action of the battle, a giant boulder caused from a Continental Crush remained front and center. The exterior of the stone had chipped away, revealing a crystalline mineral underneath that shone an icy blue. It was cold to the touch and seemed to emanate a powerful energy. It was too heavy to bring with them, but Athena loaded up all of the smaller crystals into a bag. “Let’s head back down the mountain where it’s safer. I’m sure the townsfolk would like to thank you too!”

For all of their hard work, the following Pokemon have received levels (if a Pokemon is lv.100, you shall receive an equivalent number of rare candies to levels received):
Drew: Malcolm the Seviper (2)

Battered and weary, the trainers made their way back to the waterfall, where Marina and Jet were waiting for them. They were relieved to see that everyone was in one piece and congratulated them as they listened to the story of the epic battle that had taken place. The sun was out in full force now, and much of the snow and ice had already begun to melt across the area. After everyone was loaded back onto the raft, Marina’s Gyarados and Jet’s Drifblim took them back down the falls, where they were greeted by Samuel and Madoka.

Eventually everyone had been loaded up into the carriages where they were taken back towards town. Much of the snow across the plains had already turned to slush, the mysterious force of nature disappearing nearly as fast as it arrived. Once they arrived back in town, the trainers were met by a swarm of people, who roared with cheers upon their return. Arriving into the town square, the trainers were let out where doctors and nurses quickly tended to everyone’s injuries and healed everyone’s Pokemon. Hot cocoa was passed out to everyone, from a group of citizens led by none other than bundled-up Primrose, who had recovered enough to walk. She might have still been fairly weak, but she was going to express her gratitude no matter what.

“Everyone gather ‘round,” Athena called out as she brought forth the loot she had collected up at the mountain. “On behalf of everyone who calls this mountain home, I would like to thank all of you for your valiant effort from the bottom of my heart.” The gathering of citizens erupted in applause once again. “As thanks, I would like to give all of you a piece of the parting gift that Glalie left us with,” Athena said, laying out an assortment of items for the trainers. “Hopefully we can see you return to the Cloud Garden again on better terms; when everything isn’t frozen and covered in snow!” As the trainers gazed across the shiny assortment of crystals and rocks, the sunlight from the sky above reflected off of them in a beautiful glimmer of lights. It was a bright new day for the Cloud Garden, a day that the citizens of Galea Town would never forget.

All trainers have been awarded the following items:
Never-Melt Ice x1
Icy Rock x1
Ice Stone x1
TM Hail x1
Trainers may also select ONE of the following packages:
Package 2: Icium-Z x1
I want to take a minute and thank everyone for participating in this campaign over the last three months. It was quite the grind, but we made it through! I especially want to thank Patches and morningstar for all of their hard work in assisting me with this campaign. There is absolutely no way I would have been able to tell this story without their help and their contributions. I really had a lot of fun coming up with this story, as it helped me create quite a bit of world-building for this zone I am so proud of, and so I hope you all had just as much fun participating in it. If you aren’t already adventuring in the Cloud Garden, I hope to see you there in the future, and if not maybe we will get the chance to update you again in a future campaign! Thank you all!
Taking the opportunity since this is unlocked briefly (& thanks for that, by the way, even if for me this is just a happy accident I've stumbled upon).

Malcolm Lv.24->Lv.26 *learns Night Slash*
Picking up: Never Melt Ice, Icy Rock, Ice Stone, TM Hail, Icium Z

Thanks for the campaign you three, for all I was able to participate in the end. I wish I'd been able to finish the epilogue post I'd planned, but such is life. It'll probably appear in a VG recap when I ever actually get to those.
