Satoshi and his friends have come to a mountain where they can see the "Koiking waterfall climb", but the waterfall is frozen over! A Tunbear peeks out from behind a rock to see Satoshi and his friends, and sighs deeply.......


▲ Tunbear sighs deeply. The sigh freezes everyone around him!

Satoshi is excited by Tunbear's powerful ice powers, but Tunbear runs away with sad eyes. Maybe it can't use its power in the forest as much as it wants.......?
