Morana visited the Striaton Gym, though she did not wish to acquire the Trio Badge. Instead, when confronted by Chili and Cress, she challenged them to a battle, with the status of their Gym at stake. Initially, the brothers were reluctant, but they soon decided to accept her challenge after she insulted Cress. She defeated Chili and Cress in short order, but then learned that she had to defeat Cilan, the third Gym Leader, to fully defeat the Gym.
With that knowledge, Morana traveled to Paladin Island in the Decolore Islands, as did Chili and Cress, to meet up with Cilan. After Cilan learned all about the events that had played out, he accepted Morana's challenge and decided to use his Pansage, as it was his closest partner. She used her Abomasnow and took an early lead in the battle. However, during the battle, Cilan performed an evaluation on Morana's relationship with Abomasnow, in which he concluded that she put victory in battle above all else, even her relationship with her Pokémon. After confirming his evaluation, Morana tried to overpower Cilan and win, but Cilan and Pansage overwhelmed her using a tactical attack. She bitterly admitted defeat and swore that she would defeat Cilan the next time they met.

Abomasnow is Morana's main Pokémon. He challenged Cilan's Pansage and lost after a long battle, gaining respect for Pansage afterwards. Like his Trainer, he is shown to be rather rude, as he attacked Pansage without any provocation.
