Effect

Snow Cloak raises ability-bearer's evasion by 20% in a hail storm. It also gives immunity to damage by hail (if they are not already protected by being Ice type).

Outside of battle

If a Pokémon with Snow Cloak is the leading party Pokémon while travelling in a hail storm/blizzard, wild Pokémon are only half as likely to appear.
