As you can see, Route 17 is completely covered in snow! It’s like this all year round.
People usually ride on the back of a Mamoswine to plow their way through to the other side.
But unfortunately, the Mamoswine is hanging out in front of the Frost Cavern and won’t budge…
Is something wrong in the Frost Cavern, Mamoswine?
Are you headed to the Frost Cavern, Trainer?
This Mamoswine here usually can’t get enough of giving people rides on Route 17, but…
These days, it seems to be too worried about something in the Frost Cavern to give rides.
Mamoswine is a Pokémon that loves cold climates.
So, maybe it has sensed something amiss in the Frost Cavern.
And you are?
My name is Trevor.
I’m researching the distribution of Pokémon in the Kalos region at Professor Sycamore’s request.
I see. So that’s why you’re walking clear out to the Frost Cavern, then.
Mamoswine seems concerned about something over there, so be careful.
I will. Thank you.
What are you going to do, ○○○○?
I’m going to prepare for my expedition.
It’s really cold in here, isn’t it, ○○○○?
Is there something going on up ahead?
This Abomasnow is a fine specimen!
It’s absolutely brimming with energy.
The more we agitate it, the stronger its Snow Warning Ability becomes, making the snow fall even more furiously.
Let’s catch it swiftly and get out of here.
Hey, you Poké Ball thieves!
What are you doing here?!
What does it look like?
We’re catching Pokémon. Why else would we have grabbed all of those Poké Balls?
It was all so we could catch powerful Pokémon like this Abomasnow. It’s full of potent energy!
You’re not the brightest one, are you?
Whoever has the most Pokémon and the most energy will come out on top!
Lazy people who just wait for things to be handed to them don’t get to have these resources!
But why is Team Flare amassing Pokémon, energy, and money?
To put it another way, why is Team Flare always trying to take everything for itself?
Allow me to spell it out for you! It’s so Team Flare—and only Team Flare—can survive!
After all, why should we care about saving people who aren’t on our side?
Anyway, I don’t mind a healthy curiosity, but I’m afraid I just don’t have any more time for you.
Did they say only Team Flare will survive?
These people have a few screws loose…
You two—hurry up and send these kids packing!
Let’s go! Team Flare!
This is the trademark pose of Team Flare!
It’s the very definition of fashionable!
Hmm… How do you think I could reverse time to the point before I lost?
I may have lost… I may have lost, but…
Isn’t this winter wonderful beautiful?
Almost as beautiful as the Team Flare pose…
