Main articles: Candice's Abomasnow and Morana's Abomasnow

Candice's Abomasnow was used to fight against Ash in a Gym Battle in the episode Sliding Into Seventh!. It battled Ash's Chimchar, proved to be powerful opponent. It was later followed by Morana's Abomasnow in the near end of Best Wishes series from the episode, Survival of the Striaton Gym!, and was used to fight against Cilan and his Pansage in order to take over the Striaton City Gym after she defeated both of his brothers, Chili and Cress. As Cilan mentioned to his evaluation, her Abomasnow uses both offensive attacks and its ice abilities but if she keeps using the same strategy it will be unpredictable.

In the XY series, Wulfric's Abomasnow is more powerful than both Candice and Morana's as it can mega evolve into a Mega Abomasnow. During the Gym rematch with Ash, it was the final Pokémon used to fight against Ash's Greninja but was defeated from its Ash-Greninja form via Bond Phenomenon.
