Snow Cloak is an ability introduced in Generation IV. It raises Evasiveness when it is hailing. It also makes it less probable that you will come across wild Pokémon when it is hailing. If a non-Ice-type Pokémon possesses this ability, it will not be hurt when it is hailing. It is an exclusive ability to Ice-type Pokémon.


Effect in Battle

Snow Cloak raises the user's evasion in a hailstorm.

Effect outside of Battle

If a Pokémon with the ability Snow Cloak is placed first in the party in hailing weather, the chances of running into wild Pokémon decreases by 50%.
