I rotated in a new team of Pokémon: Purrloin, Carnivine, Gogoat, and Escavalier. I decided to leave Couriway Town, and explore the next route. Route 19, or Grande Vallée Way, was swampy area that surrounded some hills. A large wooden bridge spanned a wide valley between two of the hills, making a convenient shortcut to Snowbelle City. I saw some wild Sliggoo in some of the deeper waters. They must love this damp area.

I battled a trainer who had a pair of Pumpkaboo, and my Purrloin easily defeated them, and evolved into Liepard!

April 13, 2015

I did a lot of exploring of Grande Vallée Way in the evening. Most of the wild Pokémon I saw in the area were ones I’ve already encountered in the eastern mountain region of Kalos. I had battles with plenty of trainers, many of whom were Pokémon Rangers helping to take care of the Pokémon who made the murky water here their home. While I was on one of the hills, I came across a horde of Gligar! So I found another familiar Pokémon in Kalos. One of them was able to withstand a Leaf Tornado attack from my Carnivine. The rest were knocked out in a single hit. Since the one that was weakened likely had a higher defense, I decided to try to catch it. It took two Poké Balls, but I managed to catch it!

“Gligar, the Flyscoripion Pokémon. Gligar usually cling to cliffs. When they spot prey, they spread their wings and glide down to attack. They fly straight at their targets’ faces, then clamp down on the startled victims to inject poison.”

375. Gligar

A little later, I found Shauna exploring the route near the large bridge. She said she would like to challenge me to a Pokémon battle, since it’s been over a year since we battled and our Kalos journey has taken us far and wide. Since it was getting late, I asked if we could have our battle tomorrow, so that we each have time to train. She agreed.

I finished training the current team, and then brought them to the Pokémon Center for treatment. I then had Cubone, Wingull, and Pancham join Delibird, and decided that those four Pokémon would be the team I challenge Shauna with. I had them each practice their moves, and I received a little surprise. As Wingull fired some Air Slashes, it started to form a powerful gust which was able to lift objects into the air. It looks like Wingull learned a new move. Now it can use Hurricane in addition to Air Slash! I still think both moves are essential, because although Hurricane is quite powerful, it is not very accurate. But hopefully, adding a move like that to our arsenal will help with any grass or fighting-type Pokémon we might face!

April 14, 2015

Shauna and I postponed our battle for now, but I did take the opportunity to train my Pokémon. First I took Delibird to a Super Training facility, and we kept training until it defeated all 30 challenges. I always forget how difficult some of those challenges are. In addition to Delibird getting all 30 Super Training medals, we earned a Dusk Stone, Dawn Stone, and a Fire Stone, the latter of which I don’t currently have any of. It also allowed Delibird to earn the Training Ribbon!

April 15, 2015

I finally had my battle with Shauna. We met on Grande Vallée Way like we planned. I was excited for the battle because one of my Pokémon had learned a new move, which I couldn’t wait to try out.

“This reminds me of our battle back when we met in Aquacorde Town!” Shauna exclaimed. “You’ll get to see my Pokémon friends that I caught on my journey! Starting with… my Delcatty!”

“A Delcatty, eh? Ok.” I sent out my first Pokémon. “Pancham, maximize!”

“Your Pancham looks great!” She commented. “Ok, I’ll attack first. Delcatty, use Charm!”

“Pancham, dodge that!” My Pokémon easily dodged the attack. “Great job! Now do the opposite of what they wanted. Use Swords Dance!”

“Powering up your Pokémon, I see. Delcatty, time to Play Rough!”

The super-effective attack hit, but Pancham was able to withstand the damage.

“You’re doing great, Pancham!” I encouraged my Pokémon. “Now let’s show off your new move. Use Sky Uppercut!”

Pancham quickly ran up to Delcatty, winding up its arm, and then launching Delcatty into the air with a very strong super-effective attack!

“That was really powerful. You’ve really become strong on your journey,” Shauna recalled her Pokémon. “Let me show you how strong I’ve become. Go, Greninja!”

“Hey, that’s the Froakie you started your journey with!” I was prepared for it though. “Pancham, return, you did great out there. Time to relive our first battle, Shauna! Chesnaught, maximize!”

“You think I’m not ready for that?” Shauna seemed to have a plan. “Greninja, use Extrasensory!”

The unexpected attack was super-effective, doing significant damage.

“Chesnaught, no! Quick, strike back with Leech Seed!”

Leech Seed hit, slowly draining Greninja’s energy.

“That won’t be enough!” Shauna yelled. “Use Extrasensory again!”

“Chesnaught, use Spiky Shield to defend!” I called out a counter move.

“That shield won’t do much against a special attack,” Shauna observed. “Greninja keep up the Extrasensory attack!”

She was right. Chesnaught’s shield broke, and it was blasted with the psychic attack. Chesnaught fell.

“I win!” Shauna cheered.

But I saw that Chesnaught was holding on! “Not quite yet, Shauna! Now, Chesnaught, use Seed Bomb!”

Since Greninja was weakened from the Leech Seed, the attack was just enough to knock it out!

“Chesnaught, return, you deserve a good long rest.” Both of us recalled our Pokémon.

“Ok, Steve, here comes my last Pokémon,” said Shauna. “Goodra, I choose you!”

“Goodra?” I asked. “What’s a Goodra?”

“Goodra, the Dragon Pokémon, and the evolved form of Sliggoo. Goodra attack with retractable horns. They throw punches that are the equivalent of the force of a hundred pro boxers. These very friendly dragon-type Pokémon will hug their beloved trainers, leaving those trainers covered in sticky slime.”

“Wow, so it looks like that little Goomy I caught has a powerful final evolution,” I commented as I put away my Pokédex. “Guess I’ll go with the obvious choice. Delibird, maximize!”

“Wow, I can’t believe you found another differently-colored Pokémon,” Shauna looked at it with wide eyes.

“I’ve been lucky in Kalos, I guess,” I called my first move. “Delibird, use Frost Breath!”

Frost Breath hit, but didn’t do as much damage as I had hoped.

“Goodra, use Dragon Pulse!”

The blast hit Delibird, knocking it out immediately!

“Wow, that was some power,” I recalled my Pokémon. “Delibird, thank you, you tried your best.”

“Want to try another Pokémon against my Goodra?” Shauna asked.

“I do.” I tossed out my next Poké Ball. “Cubone, you’re up!”

“We got this, Goodra,” Shauna said, sounding confident. “Use Dragon Pulse!”

“Get ready, Cubone!” My Pokémon responded in understanding, bracing itself. The attack hit, but Cubone was able to take it fairly well! “Nice job! Now strike back with Power-Up Punch!”

Cubone got in close and struck Goodra, but what I was really going for was the attack boost.

Shauna responded. “Knock it away with another Dragon Pulse!”

Since Cubone was closed in on Goodra, the blast knocked it back quite a bit.

“Cubone, before it can recover, use Boneberang!”

The double hit from Cubone’s weapon was all we needed. Cubone defeated Shauna’s Goodra!

Before we could recover from the battle, Tierno and Trevor showed up, and Tierno challenged me to a battle. I knew my Pokémon were not up for the challenge, but Tierno immediately sent out his Talonflame. After powering up with Swords Dance, it easily wiped the floor with all of my Pokémon. I told him I would give my Pokémon some recovery time, train some more, and be back to challenge him, and win this time!

April 17, 2015

I took the opportunity today to have my Wingull earn its 11th ribbon, the Relax Ribbon. I can’t wait to get back to the Hoenn region and enter my Pokémon in some Pokémon Contests!

After a bit more training with my Pokémon, I re-challenged Tierno. I decided to bring along Lanturn, since I figured it would make a good match-up for Tierno’s Talonflame. With a little assist from Delibird, we were able to defeat it. Then Wingull easily beat his Roserade with a single Hurricane. Finally, my Pancham was a perfect type match-up for his Crawdaunt.

After my battle with Tierno, Trevor decided to battle me for the first time! He started off with a Raichu. My choice of Pokémon was obvious. I went with Cubone, and easily won the match. Next up was Aerodactyl, who proved a little more difficult. It took both Gligar and Wingull to bring it down. And last up was Trevor’s Florges, and I had to use Cubone and Delibird to win that one. After our battle, they left in the direction of Couriway Town. Meanwhile, I finished crossing the bridge, and entered Snowbelle City!

Despite being the season of spring, here in Snowbelle City you would think it was the dead of winter. When I asked some folks at the Pokémon Canter, they said that it was because of all the ice-types in the Pokémon Gym. So my last gym challenge will be an ice challenge. Good to know. I left my Pokémon who just battled hard with Nurse Joy, then had another group of Pokémon sent to me. This time it will be Yanmega, Sneasel, Eevee, and Voltorb.

April 22, 2015

I explored a little bit of Snowbelle City. I think I would have been more in awe of its beauty if I wasn’t so sick of cold, snowy weather by now. I found the Pokémon Gym, but the gym leader was not there. I was told he went into the nearby Winding Woods. I believe that’s where Professor Sycamore said he was going to be, so I decided that’s a good place as any to explore next.

Near the entrance to the forest, I ran into the professor. He gave me a Pokémon egg and told me that somewhere on the other side of these woods is a place called the Pokémon Village, where Pokémon who are injured or abandoned go to rest and recover. He also said that he has a few more Pokémon eggs for me, once I’m ready. Then he left for the Pokémon Center.

As I walked around the Winding Woods, the egg I was given hatched. It was an Igglybuff! I’m still shocked to discover familiar species of Pokémon in the Kalos region.

“Igglybuff, the Balloon Pokémon. Igglybuff have very soft bodies. Instead of walking with their short legs, they move around by bouncing. If they start to roll, they will bounce all over and be impossible to stop.”

376. Igglybuff

I found a large, moss-covered rock near the entrance to the forest. Figuring out what it was, I brought out my Eevee to train. We battled against some wild Jigglypuff that were in the area, and it wasn’t long before my Eevee evolved into Leafeon!

“Jigglypuff, the Balloon Pokémon, and the evolved form of Igglybuff. Jigglypuff captivate foes with their huge, round eyes, then lull them to sleep by singing a soothing melody. If they inflate to sing a lullaby, they can perform longer and cause sure drowsiness in their audiences.”

377. Leafeon

April 23, 2015

I continued to train my current team around Snowbelle City. My Voltorb evolved into Electrode, and my Igglybuff evolved into Jigglypuff!

378. Electrode

379. Jigglypuff


May 1, 2015

After training the current team at the Battle Chateau over the last few days, I rotated in the next group of Pokémon consisting of Seadra, Diggersby, Poliwag, and Trubbish. I then stopped in Couriway Town and took my Pancham to the hotel there, where it earned a Relax Ribbon, making 11 ribbons for it.

May 8, 2015

I started the morning off in Couriway Town, where I obtained a Relax Ribbon for my Delibird. Now, all four of my shiny Pokémon have the same 11 ribbons, except for Delibird which has yet to earn the Footprint Ribbon.

Then I decided to train my team in the nearby Terminus Cave. There were a few entrances to explore of the old mine. The first chamber I found was rather small, but I did manage to find a Normal Gem, and even more importantly, a Dragon Scale! I gave it to my Seadra, and it evolved into Kingdra! Kingdra is one of those Pokémon I don’t think I’ve had the opportunity to train much before, so I am excited to have it on my team.

“Kingdra, the Dragon Pokémon, and the evolved form of Seadra. Kingdra store energy by sleeping at underwater depths at which no other life-forms can survive. It is said that they usually hide in underwater caves. They can create whirlpools by yawning.”

380. Kingdra

I found a small second chamber, but didn’t really find much of interest there. After a brief stop at the Pokémon Center, I returned to the mines, battling wild Pokémon along the way. And my Poliwag evolved into Poliwhirl! So I gave it a King’s Rock, and it evolved further into a Politoed! Like Slowking and Kingdra, this is a Pokémon I’m very excited to train, because I never really got to train a Politoed before.

“Politoed, the Frog Pokémon, and an evolved form of Poliwhirl. Politoed sing in a loud voice that sounds like bellowing whenever they get together. If Poliwag and Poliwhirl hear their echoing cries, they respond by gathering from far and wide.”

381. Politoed

The third entrance to the mines proved to lead into a much larger cave to explore. I trained my Pokémon against the wild Pokémon there for a little experience. Then I ran into a horde of Larvitar! I picked one out, and had Politoed use Hypnosis on it. Two Poké Balls later, and I caught it!

“Larvitar, the Rock Skin Pokémon. Larvitar feed on soil. Born deep underground, they come aboveground once they have finished eating the surrounding soil. After they eat a large mountain, they fall asleep so they can grow.”

382. Larvitar

I then decided to leave the cave for a while and train my team in the area around Couriway Town. During this time, my Trubbish evolved into Garbodor!

383. Garbodor

After a bit more battling with that group, I rotated my Pokémon out, having Barbaracle, Cubchoo, Houndoom, and Kangaskhan sent to me. Also, I noticed I had received another Kalos medal a few weeks ago, bringing my total to 84!

A-040-1 Adventure O-Power Pro A Medal to recognize those who have received all of the O-Powers from Mr. Bonding. 04/23/2015

While training with my current team, my Cubchoo evolved into Beartic!

384. Beartic

Then I continued my exploration of Terminus Cave. Among the other familiar wild Pokémon I passed by in the cave, I found a few Ariados that ambushed me and my Pokémon from the ceiling of the cavern!

“Ariados, the Long Leg Pokémon, and the evolved form of Spinarak. Ariados spin string not only from their rear but also from their mouth. It’s hard to tell which end is which. They attach silk to their prey and set it free, only to track the prey later.”

I also saw some fluttering up in the ceiling. I assumed it was some Zubat, but the Pokédex says that Zubat don’t live in the mountains of Kalos. One finally flew down closer, and it definitely wasn’t a Zubat! Who’s that Pokémon?

“Noibat, the Sound Wave Pokémon. Noibat live in pitch-black caves. Their enormous ears can emit ultrasonic waves of 200,000 hertz. Even a robust wrestler will become dizzy and unable to stand when exposed to these ultrasonic waves.”

A new Pokémon! I tried to catch one, but the Poké Ball failed, and then it used Whirlwind to escape. I tried to find another, but any time I did the result was the same. Since I was becoming frustrated with the search, I decided to take a break from it for the rest of the afternoon.

Later in the evening, I gave it another try. I spent a good few hours searching. When I did find a Noibat, it would usually use Whirlwind to escape, and once was my own fault when I had Beartic use Slash to weaken it and ended up landing a critical hit. I finally decided to get smarter about it. I went back to the Pokémon Center and had my Octillery sent over to me. With its ability of Suction Cups, Whirlwind would have no effect! That was a perfect strategy, because the next one I encounter, I finally was able to capture!

385. Noibat

May 12, 2015

There was something I didn’t realize yesterday. Noibat has a very interesting type combination. Zubat are flying and poison-types, Woobat are flying and psychic-types, and now Noibat are flying and dragon-type! I thought that was pretty cool and interesting. Although that combination does make it terribly weak to ice-type attacks. And I wonder if it has an evolution?

I continued to explore Terminus Cave. I eventually covered the entire first floor, battling a few trainers with rock and ground-type Pokémon, and even found a Moon Stone, which will be useful when my Jigglypuff is ready to evolve. Then I decided to head to the Battle Chateau for some more efficient training of my Pokémon team. Once I felt they all had a good workout, I returned to the Pokémon Center in Snowbelle City, and rotated out my Pokémon for Furfrou, Murkrow, Magnemite, and Stunfisk.

I stopped in the Winding Woods as well, where Professor Sycamore gave me another Pokémon egg. It hatched into a Shuppet!

“Shuppet, the Puppet Pokémon. Shuppet love vengeful emotions and hang in rows under the eaves of houses where vengeful people live. It is said they use their horn to feed on envy and malice. They are very active at night.”

386. Shuppet

I think it’s interesting to note, that I now have as many Pokémon in Kalos as there were in the first three Pokémon regions combined. And back then, despite traveling Hoenn and Kanto for four years, I never caught them all. And I caught 386 in Kalos in a year and a half. Still so many more to go, though!

May 13, 2015

I took my team back to Terminus Cave for more training and exploration. I went deeper into the cave and found a trainer named Andrea who challenged me to a battle. She used a Throh and a Conkeldurr!

“Conkeldurr, the Muscular Pokémon, and the evolved form of Gurdurr. Conkeldurr master moves that utilize the centrifugal force of spinning concrete rather than relying on pure force. It is thought that they taught humans how to make concrete more than 2,000 years ago.”

Unfortunately, my entire team was ultimately defeated by her two Pokémon. So after bringing them to the Pokémon Center for recovery, we did a little more training. My Magnemite evolved into Magneton!

387. Magneton

Then we explored a little bit more of Terminus Cave near Andrea, and I found a Dusk Stone in one of the cave’s corners. That’s actually quite convenient. I gave it to my Murkrow, and it evolved into Honchkrow!

388. Honchkrow

With my newly evolved Pokémon, I re-challenged Andrea, and won, though barely. It came down to my little Shuppet landing repeated Phantom Force attacks on a paralyzed Conkeldurr. I then explored more of the cave, battling many more trainers who mostly had fighting-type Pokémon. They made great opponents for my Honchkrow. Although there was a Sawk with the ability Sturdy that proved a challenge, Shuppet came through again with its priority Shadow Sneak attack.

The battles were tough, but my Pokémon became stronger from them. And my Delibird learned a new defensive move; now it can use Double Team! After the long hours of exploring the tunnels, I returned to the Pokémon Center and gave my Pokémon a well-deserved rest with Nurse Joy. I then had Accelgor, Swinub, Chesnaught, and Sylveon sent over to me.

May 14, 2015

I stopped to see Professor Sycamore in the Winding Woods, and he gave me a Pokémon egg that hatched into Zorua! For as rare as Zorua are in Unova, I never expected to find any in Kalos.

“Zorua, the Tricky Fox Pokémon. Zorua hide their true identities by transforming into people and Pokémon to protect themselves from danger. They change so they look like their foes, trick them, and then use that opportunity to flee.”

389. Zorua

I then decided to take that team to the Battle Chateau for some training. While I was there, my Swinub evolved into Piloswine!

390. Piloswine


May 18, 2015

I did more training at the chateau, and then rotated my team for Foongus, Basculin, Carbink, and Sliggoo.

May 19, 2015

I received yet another Pokémon egg from the professor in the Winding Woods, and it hatched into a Gothita!

“Gothita, the Fixation Pokémon. Gothita have ribbonlike feelers that increase their psychic power. They are always intently staring at something. Apparently, they are looking at something that only they can see.”

391. Gothita

Then it was back to the Battle Chateau, for yet more training. This time, my Foongus evolved into Amoonguss!

“Amoonguss, the Mushroom Pokémon, and the evolved form of Foongus. Amoonguss lure prey close by dancing and waving their arm caps, which look like Poké Balls, in a swaying motion. Very few Pokémon are fooled by this.”

392. Amoonguss

After finishing with that team, I had Aegislash, Smoochum, Snover, and Patrat.

May 21, 2015

I took my team of five Pokémon to the Winding Woods, and received another egg from Professor Sycamore. This egg hatched into a Bonsly!

“Bonsly, the Bonsai Pokémon, and pre-evolved form of Sudowoodo. Bonsly prefer arid environments. They leak water that looks like tears when adjusting their moisture levels.”

393. Bonsly

“That’s the last Pokémon egg I have for you,” stated the professor. “You’re well on your way to completing the Kalos Pokédex. Though I do have one more surprise for you. Come see me at my lab once you’ve completed your Central Kalos Pokédex, and I’ll share it with you!”

So the professor left, and I decided I would finally explore the Winding Woods. I trained my team against many of the wild Pokémon in the area. I saw some Pokémon I haven’t seen yet in Kalos, so I scanned them with my Pokédex!

“Noctowl, the Owl Pokémon, and the evolved form of Hoothoot. Noctowl have eyes that are specially adapted. They concentrate even faint light and enable them to see in the dark. When they need to think, they rotate their head 180 degrees to sharpen their intellectual power.”

“Gothorita, the Manipulate Pokémon, and the evolved form of Gothita. Gothorita mark star positions by using psychic power to float stones. Starlight is the source of their power. According to many old tales, they create friends for themselves by controlling sleeping children on starry nights.”


After my Smoochum battled the wild Gothorita we encountered, it evolved into Jynx!

394. Jynx

May 24, 2015

I did some more training in the Winding Woods. My Snover had a hard battle against a wild Noctowl, and afterwards it evolved into Abomasnow!

“Abomasnow, the Frosted Tree Pokémon, and the evolved form of Snover. Abomasnow live quiet lives on mountains that are perpetually covered in snow. They blanket wide areas in snow by whipping up blizzards. Travelers sometimes refer to one they’ve spotted as ‘The Ice Monster.’ “

395. Abomasnow

After that, it was my Patrat’s turn at some battling. After a battle with a wild Jigglypuff, which was a battle of Sing versus Hypnosis, my Patrat evolved into Watchog!

396. Watchog

May 25, 2015

Now that I have an Abomasnow, I can use the Abomasite I was given back in Frost Cavern. I tried it out, and my Abomasnow mega evolved into Mega Abomasnow! It gets a huge boost to its attack and special attack, in exchange for losing a bit in its defenses.

I continued exploring the Winding Woods while training my team. I can see why they call it the Winding Woods! It was very easy to get turned around and lost despite following the path. After extensively exploring, I was on my way out of the forest and ran into one final surprise Pokémon. It was a Zoroark! I can’t believe such a rare Pokémon can be found in the wild in Kalos!

“Zoroark, the Illusion Fox Pokémon, and the evolved form of Zorua. Zoroark have the ability to fool a large group of people simultaneously. The bond between these Pokémon are strong. They protect their lairs by tricking their opponents with illusionary scenery.”

May 26, 2015

Finally, I am on my last rotation of Pokémon for this round of training! I had Tyrantrum, Vivillon, Pinsir, and Bergmite sent to me. I finished making my way through the Winding Woods, and exited out onto an open field. There was a man there surrounded by some Pokémon. The Pokémon scattered when they saw me emerge from the forest. The man turned around to address me.

“Do you know what this place is?” The man began. “This is the Pokémon Village. Most of the Pokémon here are runaways from trainers who did awful things to them. It’s a shame how many heartless trainers there are out there.”

The man looked down at my Delibird who was happily standing beside me. “Your Pokémon seems to think highly of you. You’ve had some good times together, haven’t you?”

He then turned around and called all the Pokémon to come back. They gathered around him once more. He introduced himself as Wulfric, the Snowbelle City Gym Leader. I introduced myself and mentioned that I would like to challenge him for my eighth and final gym badge. He accepted, and told me to stop by the gym whenever I was ready. Meanwhile, he gave me permission to explore Pokémon Village, and even battle or capture the wild Pokémon that live here.

So explore I did. I didn’t immediately find any new Pokémon, but these wild Pokémon were of a very high level, and made good opponents to give my team experience. Soon, my Bergmite evolved into Avalugg!

397. Avalugg

I continued to walk around the wide open area, battling more Pokémon, and even saw a Snorlax fast asleep under a small canopy. Then I found an interesting item. Though I have documented it, I have been finding the type plates all through Kalos. I found one here as well. It seems a plate for fairy-type exists, as I picked up a Pixie Plate. These plates change the Alpha Pokémon Arceus into different types, so it appears it can change form to fairy-type as well! I placed it in my bag with the other plates and continued to explore.

Then I found a Pokémon I haven’t seen yet in Kalos. Or, maybe I did and just didn’t realize it. It was a shape-changing Ditto! I tossed a few Poké Balls, and managed to catch it on the second try.

“Ditto, the Transform Pokémon. Ditto can freely recombine their own cellular structures to transform into any other life-form they see. Some have been said to have the ability to even transform into inanimate objects.”

398. Ditto

May 27, 2015

I finished training that team of Pokémon, and then begin to consider what Pokémon to take with me into the Snowbelle City Gym. I think Pancham is a good choice; it would be its first gym battle, but fighting-type moves will be very helpful. Not many of the new Kalos Pokémon seem to be good matchups, though I think Talonflame and Aegislash would do well. I decided on Aegislash. And as for a Pokémon that could mega evolve… that’s even tougher. The only ones who haven’t battled in a gym yet are all weak against ice-type attacks, except for Lucario and Blastoise. Since I already have steel and fighting covered with my other two choices, I decided to go with Blastoise.

So I entered the freezing cold Pokémon gym, and battled the many Ace Trainers inside to give my trio of Pokémon some practice battling ice-types. Some of them used some evolved ice-types I haven’t seen in a while, but pretty much predicted I would run into in the gym. Although, I really thought it would be the gym leader that might use at least one of them.

“Mamoswine, the Twin Tusk Pokémon, and the evolved form of Piloswine. Mamoswine have impressive tusks made of ice. One was dug from ice dating back 10,000 years. These Pokémon have been around a long, long time, but the population thinned when it turned warm after the ice age.”

“Vanilluxe, the Snowstorm Pokémon, and the evolved form of Vanillish. Vanilluxe swallow large amounts of water and make snow clouds inside their bodies. If both heads get angry simultaneously, they expel a blizzard, burying everything in snow.”


I returned to the Pokémon Center, and gave my Pokémon a brief rest before taking on Wulfric!
