Twila was a gift from Glacier's mother Psyche, whose strongest pokemon is Twilight the Xatu. Whenever Glacier looks at Twila he sees his mother, an extremely skilled Psychic Knight who always taught him to try his hardest. Becuase she reminds him of his mother, Glacier has a soft spot for Twila, giving her extra treats when she begs and always giving her time out of her ball. Twila is the strategic one of Glacier's ragtag team of pokemon, always calculating calmly the options before and on the battle field. Ninja sometimes bothers her while she stares mystical at the sun, but she still loves her family.

Keen Eye: (Innate)This Pokemon has extremely good vision and cannot have its accuracy lowered by an opponent through any means (including accuracy lowering attacks, Smogs, Hazes, Fog, etc.). Its attacks are still affected by an opponent’s evasion and the Pokemon's own accuracy. Pickpocket (DW): (Innate) This Pokemon's mischievous nature and greed make it very effective at pawning off an opponents item. If this Pokemon has no item and either it or the opposing Pokemon strikes with a contact attack, their item is stolen and becomes the held item of this Pokemon. Pokemon with Pickpocket can be commanded to swap items with an ally, and only they will need to expend an action to do so because of their swifter sleight of hand.
