The '''Icy Rock''' (Japanese: '''つめたいいわ''' ''Icy Rock'') is a type of [[held item]] introduced in [[Generation IV]]. It extends the duration of {{weather|hail}}.
==In the core series games==
If the Pokémon holding this item usescreates {{weather|hail}} with the move {{m|Hail}} or hasthe Ability {{a|Snow Warning}}, [[hail]]it lasts eight turns instead of five turns. (Prior to [[Generation VI]], it has no effect on Snow Warning, which creates hail with indefinite length in those games.)
In the [[Generation VII]] games, if hail has its duration extended by the Icy Rock, the turn counter on the user interface for these effects will indicate that it lasts for 8 turns for the player whose Pokémon used the move, while it will display that it lasts for 5 turns for their opponent. After 5 turns of hail have passed, the user interface will display that it lasts for 8 turns for both players.
