Snover (ユキカブリ) is the 142nd Pokémon in the Sinnoh Pokédex. It is a Grass/Ice Type, and is known as the Frost Tree Pokémon.

Snover uses the Snow Warning Ability. Whenever Snover enters battle when it's using this Ability, a Hailstorm will start, and will continue for the duration of the battle or a different weather condition takes effect. A second Ability is available to Snover from the Dream World, the Soundproof Ability. This Ability gives it an immunity to all moves that are Sound-Based, but switching with Baton Pass won't protect the substituted Pokémon from Perish Song.

Snover gain the opportunity to evolve into Abomasnow starting at Level 40.

Snover is in the Egg Groups Monster and Grass, and its Egg takes approximately 5,120 Steps to hatch. It takes Snover 1,250,000 Experience Points to reach Level 100.

[edit] Anime/Manga Information

[edit] Pokémon Information

[edit] Competitive Battling

Snover finds itself in the RarelyUsed Tier of Competitive Battling as a result of being shafted by its evolution Abomasnow, but it has a noteworthy niche in this tier due to its Snow Warning Ability, giving Blizzard 100% Accuracy and allowing abilities like Ice Body take into effect. This is particularly useful for Pokemon such as Walrein, which becomes a very sturdy Pokemon with hail support. The ability to offer 100% Accurate Blizzards makes Pokemon such as Rotom-F and Glaceon extremely viable, as they can launch off powerful Blizzards with no drawbacks.
