Blizzard (Japanese: ふぶき Blizzard) is a damage-dealing Ice-type move introduced in Generation I.

It is:

Effect

Generation I

Blizzard does damage and has a 10% chance of freezing the target. It has an accuracy of 90% in Generation I.

In the Japanese versions of the Generation I core series games, Blizzard had a 30% chance of freezing. The chance was lowered to 10% for Pokémon Yellow's Colosseum 2, the Stadium games, and all international Generation I games.

Generations II and III

The accuracy of Blizzard was reduced to 70%. Blizzard will hit both opponents in a Double Battle.

Blizzard can be used as the second move of a Pokémon Contest combination, with the user gaining 4 bonus appeal points if Hail or Powder Snow was used in the previous turn.

Generations IV and V

When used during hail, Blizzard bypasses accuracy checks to always hit, unless the target is in the semi-invulnerable turn of a move such as Dig or Fly. In Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, due to a glitch, when used in hail, it has a 30% chance to hit a target that has used Protect or Detect; this was fixed in Pokémon Platinum onward.

In Triple Battles, Blizzard will only hit opposing adjacent Pokémon.

Generation VI onward

Blizzard's power was lowered from 120 to 110. In Horde Encounters, it will target all opponents. Blizzard will also knock down Berries growing on Berry trees found in the background of battles.

Blizzard can also be used as part of a Contest Spectacular combination, with the user gaining extra three appeal points if the move Hail was used in the prior turn.

Like all other moves in Pokémon Legends: Arceus, Blizzard only hits one target.

Generations IX

When used during snow, Blizzard bypasses accuracy checks to always hit, unless the target is in the semi-invulnerable turn of a move such as Dig or Fly.

Blizzard is considered a wind move, and will activate Wind Power or Wind Rider if a Pokémon with that Ability is hit with it.

Pokémon UNITE

In Pokémon UNITE, Blizzard is Alolan Ninetales's second move. It is obtained by reaching level 6 and upgrading Icy Wind into it instead of Aurora Veil. The user blasts twice in a line. The first blast penetrates walls. The second blast deals double damage, shoves enemies back, and if it hits a wall, it creates a frost area at the impact location for 3s, dealing damage every .5s. At level 13, its damage increases. Due to the effect of Snow Warning, Blizzard slings snow and contributes to Alolan Ninetales freezing opposing Pokémon.

Trivia

  • The English manual for Pokémon Yellow mentions that "Blizzard's probability of freezing changes by 10%" when used in Colosseum 2. This is actually a mistranslation of something that only occurs in the Japanese version. In the Japanese Generation I handheld games, Blizzard has a 30% chance of freezing its target, but in Pokémon Yellow's Colosseum 2 this is reduced to 10%; in international releases, Blizzard always has a 10% chance of freezing its target.
  • Save for Snom, every Ice-type is capable of learning Blizzard.
