OILD: Snowbelle City

Is it Day 7 of Obligatory Ice Level Day? It is?! Great! This is a goofy, fake holiday meant to build hype for The Speed Gamers’ Zelda marathon, which starts December 12th! We’re raising money for Mercy Corps, so I hope you all help us out by promoting and donating! Y’know, a certain pedantic weirdo got me the latest entry in a certain game series. And a certain charity group is going to do a marathon based on that same certain game series. That’s why today’s ice level is Snowbelle City, from Pokémon X and Y!

Snowbelle City! And I took the screenshot myself and everything! Anyway, you know Pokémon. You run around, catch monsters, make ’em fight, etc. Pokémon X and Y take place in the Kalos region, which is based on France. As you catch a bunch of goofy little creatures, you run into Team Flare, whose evil goals are as cartoonish as their costumes. X and Y had a lot of cool new features, such as trainer customization, 3-d models, the new Fairy-type, and Mega Evolution. And I say all this as if all of you haven’t already beaten the game!

Snowbelle City lies north in the Kalos region, and you have to travel by riding a Mamoswine through the blizzards to get there. The city contains the last gym in the game as well. This snowy town is home to Wulfric, the Ice-type gym leader. When you first get there, Wulfric’s nowhere to be found, but as it turns out, he’s hanging out in the Pokémon Village, which is a secluded forest just outside of the city. When he returns, it’s time for a crazy battle. The gym itself is covered in brightly-colored, frozen platforms. Stepping on switches will rotate these bridges and thus allow you to reach the leader. Wulfric himself has a few powerful Pokémon at his disposal, including Avalugg, a new Ice-Type.
