Snow Warning (ability)

Effect

Snow Warning creates a hailstorm when the ability-bearer enters battle. The effect lasts 5 turns, unless it is cleared via Air Lock or Cloud Nine or replaced by another weather condition.

If multiple Pokémon with weather-generating abilities (Snow Warning, Drizzle, Drought or Sand Stream) enter the field on the same turn, each weather condition will activate consecutively, fastest Pokémon first. In other words, the resultant weather condition will be that of the slowest Pokémon.

Changes

Prior to Generation 6, Snow Warning lasts indefinitely upon activation.
