A blizzard forces Ash and friends to seek shelter in a Pokémon Center, but no sooner do they enter than a Snorunt, which Joy euphemistically describes as playful, absconds with Ash’s eight hard-earned gym badges. As though toying with Ash, the Snorunt leaves a trail of badges, leading him further from the Center. No one is left laughing, though, when a fierce storm sets in and Ash is left far from his friends and exposed to the harsh elements. Only with the help of the very Snorunt that landed him in this predicament, does Ash stand a chance at surviving the cold.
