Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Ginji's Rescue Team

Ginji and Mudkip traveled through Frosty Forest on their way to meet Ninetales in Battle in a Bitter Cold Land!!. Along the way, they met Absol. At first, Absol was scared of Ginji because of the rumour that he was the cursed human causing natural disasters, but when Ginji and Mudkip explained it that they were on their way to meet Ninetales to find out the truth, Absol calmed down, as it too understood what it felt like to be blamed for causing natural disasters for no good reason. Soon after, Ginji and Mudkip encountered Articuno, which Gengar had told to attack Ginji. Thankfully, Absol then arrived and convinced Articuno that everything about Ginji was just rumours, and that a much bigger power would be at work behind everything. Waiting nearby, Gengar decided to stop Ginji on his own, and used a Gravelerock to start an avalanche. However, the Pokémon below were saved when Articuno used Sheer Cold to stop the mass of snow, allowing Ginji and Mudkip to continue their travel to the Magma Cavern to meet Ninetales.
