Morana had Abomasnow attack Pansage when they met Cilan at the island, where the fabled Sinnoh and Unova trainers had fought their battle. Cilan accepted the challenge to protect his Gym and soon faced Morana. Abomasnow's Snow Warning activated, triggering a hail. Pansage tried to attack Abomasnow, but was countered by his same move, Bullet Seed. Abomasnow also used Strength to prevent Pansage's Dig and froze Pansage with Blizzard, after Pansage's attempt at Rock Tomb. Cilan put his feelings through Pansage, who crushed the ice and defeated Abomasnow with Solar Beam. After the battle, Pansage shared some of his leaves with Abomasnow, who ate them and felt better, making a new friend.
