|2||Absol (Lv. 28) will join your team|
During this part of the game, you'll be unable to gain any new friends aside from Absol. In addition, there are few options to raise your level or obtain useful Items. The only options to increase your level and collect Items are the optional Dungeons Rock Path and Snow Path. If you get stuck in continuing the story in this difficult part of the game, consider visiting these Dungeons to get ready to power through.
Before entering Frosty Forest, it is recommended to have your team at around Level 22. As recovery items are rare during this part of the game, be sure to use them sparingly, and purchase Oran Berries from Kecleon Shops when they are available. You can find a Kangaskhan Statue after 9F, before the Boss battle, so be sure to stock up on items here, if you have any in storage.
Furret and Snorunt aren't necessarily strong enemies. However, they have Coil and Double Team respectively so it might take a while before you are able to defeat them. If you see them with a group of Pokemon, take them out first so that they would not be able to stack on the stats buffs.
You're disallowed from using any Pokemon other than your Starter and Partner in this Dungeon, so your choices are limited. However, if you happened to use, Totodile, Mudkip or Squirtle as a Starter or Partner, you'll have an advantage against the Pokemon appering here.
Some of the floors in Frosty Forest might have Hail in it. This means that you will take continuous damage if your Pokemon are not immune to it. You will also not regain any of your health while in that said floor. This means that it is helpful to bring Oran Berries with you.
If you happen to find yourself without a Oran Berries, the best thing to do is to head to the next floor as soon as possible, and hope that the next floor does not have hail so you can recover your health through walking.
With only two Pokemon available to you at this point in the Story, your team will be highly vulnerable to Articuno' attacks. Articuno can use Mist to prevent you from draining its stats. Also, its Icy Wind can decrease your travel speed. When this happens, Articuno can attack twice before that Pokemon can retaliate.
Articuno can easily knock your team out if your speed is lowered. So be sure to have Tiny Reviver Seeds or Reviver Seeds with you. Having other items which inflict Status effects on Articuno, such as Confuse Wands, will make the battle easier to handle. With the right Items, you can prevent Articuno from unleashing its potential, or even being able to attack at all.
