| Hidden in the Snow
Snow Cloak (Japanese: ゆきがくれ Hidden in the Snow) is an Ability introduced in Generation IV.
During hail, the accuracy of any move used against a Pokémon with this Ability is modified by a factor of 4/5. A Pokémon with this Ability will take no damage from hail if it otherwise would.
Outside of battle
If a Pokémon with Snow Cloak is in the first place in the party (even if fainted) in an area with hail, the chance of encountering a wild Pokémon is decreased by 50%.
