Abomasnow is a large, bipedal Pokémon covered in shaggy, white fur. It has pale purple eyes with bushy eyebrows and long strands of fur covering its mouth. Two tufts of longer fur grow on both its back and chest, with the chest fur being longer on the female. Its hands, feet, and tail are dark green and spiky, similar to the foliage of an evergreen tree. On its back are four green spikes that resemble pinecones.
Abomasnow lives in snowy mountains and appears only when snow flowers bloom. Once the flowers die, it retreats to isolated areas. The reason is because Abomasnow prefers to be alone and not associate with others. It is able to create blizzards to hide itself. It can also cause whiteout conditions with just a shake of its massive body. Abomasnow is also known as the "Ice Monster" and "abominable snowman". It protects Snover from packs of Galarian Darumaka, who chase them for the Berries they grow; Abomasnow does so by swinging its arms like hammers. Abomasnow is powerful enough to split huge boulders in two.
The sprouts on its back grow into great shafts of ice when this Pokémon Mega Evolves into Mega Abomasnow. Its fur becomes longer and shaggy over its entire body, particularly around its head. Green fur or sprout remnants surround the base of the large icicles on its back, while white fur covers the middle.
A soldier's Abomasnow appeared in The Redemption, during a fantasy of a story from the past. It was one of the many Pokémon fighting in the great war of Kalos 3,000 years previously. Two additional Abomasnow were later seen petrified after the ultimate weapon was used by AZ to end the war.
Abomasnow appears as a Poké Ball summon in both versions of the game. When summoned, it will use Blizzard to draw in opponents, and can also attack with Ice Punch.
Abomasnow trophy in Super Smash Bros. for 3DS
Abomasnow appears as a trophy in both versions.
NA:A solitary Grass/Ice type, Abomasnow loves to live in the snowy mountains, though it occasionally mingles with people as well. In Smash Bros., it uses a combo of Blizzard and Ice Punch, punishing anyone who gets too close. It can change direction when attacking, so sneaking up on it from behind won't work!
PAL:Abomasnow is a Grass- and Ice-type Pokémon said to live the quiet life in snowy mountains, but it's been known to mingle with humans too. It can whip up blizzards to attack anyone who strays too close, and it can throw a powerful Ice Punch either straight in front of back over its shoulder, so there's nowhere to hide!
Abomasnow appears to be based on a cross between an evergreen tree covered in snow and a yeti. It may also be based on 樹氷 juhyou, trees completely covered in snow known as "snow monsters". It also resembles a snowy owl.
Abomasnow may be derived from Abominable Snowman, another name for the yeti.
Yukinooh may be derived from 雪の王 yuki no ō (snow king).
