Hail (Japanese: あられ Hail) is a non-damaging Ice-type move introduced in Generation III. It was TM07 from Generation III to Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, as well as in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. It was TM35 in Pokémon Sword and Shield.

Effect

Generation III

When Hail is used, a hailstorm will begin on the field. This effect will last for 5 turns. This clears any other type of weather.

While Hail is in effect, all Pokémon not of the Ice type will be damaged for 1⁄16 of their maximum HP at the end of each turn. Synthesis, Morning Sun, and Moonlight will recover only ¼ of the user's maximum HP. Additionally, Castform and the move Weather Ball become Ice-type.

Hail can be used as the first move of a Pokémon Contest combination, causing Blizzard, Powder Snow, and Weather Ball to score double the normal appeal if used in the next turn.

Generation IV to VIII

Blizzard will now hit during Hail regardless of target's evasion and user's accuracy. In Diamond and Pearl only, it can strike through Protect and Detect with 30% accuracy.

Pokémon with the Ice Body Ability recover 1⁄16 of their maximum HP each round. Pokémon with the Snow Cloak Ability increase their evasiveness by 20%. Pokémon with the Slush Rush Ability have their Speed doubled. If an Icy Rock is held by the Pokémon using Hail at the time of use, the duration of Hail will increase from 5 to 8 turns.

If heavy rain, extremely harsh sunlight, or strong winds are present, Hail will fail.

Hail can also be used as part of a Contest Spectacular combination, causing certain moves (Blizzard, Glaciate, Icicle Crash, Icy Wind, Powder Snow and Weather Ball) to give extra three appeal points if used in the next turn.

If powered up by an Icium Z into Z-Hail, the user's Speed stat is raised by one stage.

Generation IX

Hail cannot be selected in a battle, and is instead functionally replaced by the move Snowscape (creating a snowstorm).

User First Used In Notes
  Froslass's body glows light-blue and she floats into the sky. Then, thick clouds appear above the battlefield and a thick fog forms. Froslass then floats into the clouds. Snow starts to fall from the clouds, and occasionally, large balls of hail fly down and repeatedly hit combatants that are not Ice type. When Froslass takes enough damage, the clouds fade away and disappear.
