A snow tile is a type of tile that first appeared in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl.


In Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum, snow tiles can be found on Route 216, Route 217, Acuity Lakefront, Snowpoint City, and Mt. Coronet.

In HeartGold and SoulSilver, they appear at Mt. Silver Cave and at the Sinjoh Ruins.

In Pokémon X and Y, snow tiles are found on Route 17.


Generation IV

In Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum, the player can sink into the snow at four different levels:

  • sinking only minimally, which does not affect movement speed;
  • sinking a moderate amount, preventing running;
  • sinking a lot, preventing running and halving walking speed; and
  • sinking the farthest possible, preventing running and reducing walking speed to 1/4.

It is not possible for the player to cycle over a snow tile.

Generation VI

In Pokémon X and Y, snow tiles can only be traversed by riding Mamoswine. A Mamoswine Ride Pokémon is available on Route 17 for the player to use. Wild Pokémon can appear when the player traverses snow tiles, even when there is no tall grass.

In battle

Certain moves have special effects when used in a battle on a snow tile.
