The Snowball is an item introduced in Generation VI.


If a Pokémon holding a Snowball is hit by an Ice-type move, it raises the holder's Attack stat by one stage as well as consumes the Snowball. It cannot be activated if the user already has +6 Attack stat (-6 if the holder's Ability is Contrary), or if the holder is protected from or unaffected by the move.

In Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, the Snowball is one of the items a nicknamed Regice should hold in order to encounter Regigigas in Island Cave.
