On a blizzard night, Articuno comes from the Ice Island to freeze the sea. After managing to avoid being captured by Lawrence III, it, along with Moltres and Zapdos, goes on a rampage. When Lugia emerges from the water to stop the birds, Articuno, Zapdos and Moltres ultimately knock it out. During the fray, Articuno gets knocked out by Moltres and Zapdos in the Ice Island. It eventually regains consciousness, but is later calmed by the ancient song played by Melody.
