Blizzard (Japanese: ふぶき Blizzard) is a damage-dealing Ice-type move introduced in Generation I. It is TM14 from Generation I to Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon and in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, and TM51 in Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!. It is TR06 in Pokémon Sword and Shield.

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.

Inflicts the target with frostbite

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 Mystery Dungeon series

In Red Rescue Team and Blue Rescue Team, Blizzard is a move with 24 base power, 84% accuracy, and 10 PP. It damages an enemy in front of the user, cutting corners, possibly freezing the enemy.

In Explorers of Time, Darkness, and Explorers of Sky, the move now targets all enemies in the same room, possibly freezing them. In hallways, this move targets Pokémon up two tiles away (or one in one-tile darkness). Additionally, the move's PP was decreased to 7, and its accuracy to 67.2%. Reflecting the change in the main series, this move never misses if the current floor weather is hail.

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.
