Trading Card Game
Snover is listed as a Common Card in the Mysterious Treasures and Stormfront sets.
A Wild Snover was featured in the episode The Lonely Snover; then Candice would use a Snover of her own in the episode Sliding Into Seventh, which was Ash's Gym Battle against her. Snover would defeat Ash's Gliscor before getting beaten by Chimchar.
Wild Snover appear in Giratina and the Sky Warrior, along with the Pikachu Shorts "Pikachu's Exploration Club" and "Pikachu's Great Ice Adventure."
Snover's Manga Information is unknown as of writing.
Snover is in the Little Cup (LC) tier of competitive battling. Thanks to Snow Warning, Snover is one of two Pokémon in the tier with a 100% accurate Blizzard. It can negate other weathers and can shut down Chlorophyll, Swift Swim, and Sand Rush users. Snover best runs a Choice Scarf set that can spam Blizzard, but can also run an Eviolite set to be a consistent switch in to Water, Grass, and Ground attacks. The problems with Snover are that it is not as potent as it used to be with the nerf in power to Blizzard, weather sweepers are not very common, and Fletchling is one of the biggest threats in the tier and can easily take out Snover.
