Blizzard (Japanese: ふぶき Blizzard) is a damage-dealing Ice-type move introduced in Generation I. It has been TM14 in every generation so far.

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 has a 10% chance of freezing the target.

Blizzard will hit both opponents in a Double Battle.

Blizzard can also be used as part of a Pokémon Contest combination, with the user gaining extra four appeal points if either the move Hail or Powder Snow was used in the prior turn.

Generations IV and V

When used during hail, Blizzard bypasses accuracy checks to always hit, unless the opponent 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 destroy 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.

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.
