PostSubject: #460 Abomasnow   Mon Dec 22, 2008 10:00 am

After a somewhat lenghty wait, I have finally got round to writing a new article for the poke University. I have chosen Abomasnow, the Frost Tree Pokemon as the basis of my work.
If you have any questions, comments or ideas, please feel free to post.
