Trivia

  • Alongside its evolution, Abomasnow, Exeggcute, Exeggutor, and Celebi, Snover has the most weaknesses in the game, with 7 types super-effective against it.
  • As of Generation IV, Snover is the last Pokémon in the National Dex that evolves into another Pokémon.

Origin

Snover appears to have been based on the daikon radish, also known as the winter radish, which are traditionally harvested and eaten during the winter. It's also possible that Snover was made to resemble a snow-covered fir tree. Its 'hat' resembles three mountain peaks.

Name origin

Snover may be derived from snow and clover or cover – as in covered with snow. Alternatively, it could be a shortening of the phrase "snowed over." Yukikabli's name comes the Japanese words 雪 yuki, snow, and 頭 kaburi, head. Alternatively, 蕪菁 kabu is Japanese for turnip, -bli may come from blizzard, and 被せる kabuseru means to cover – in this case, with snow. Its German name, Shnebedeck, comes from Schnee and bedeckt. Its French name, Blizzi, comes from blizzard.
