Snow Cloak
In-game description
Boosts evasion in a hailstorm.

Snow Cloak is an ability introduced in Generation IV. So far 4 Pokémon have this ability.


In battle

Snow Cloak increases the evasion of the bearer during hail by 25%. A Pokémon with this Ability will take no damage from hail if it otherwise would. It can be seen as a hail counterpart to Sand Veil.

Outside of battle

If a Pokémon with Snow Cloak is the leading party Pokémon while travelling in a hail storm/blizzard, wild Pokémon are only half as likely to appear.
