 Pokémon Information
 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.
