Flavor Text

The user knocks away the target's held item, and that item can't be used in that battle. The move does more damage if the target has a held item.

Move Description

The user lobs a tightly-packed ball of ice and snow that stings when it hits its target, even moreso when it smacks the target right where it's holding something. The thrown snowball will knock held items out of the opponent's grip.


Target loses its held item, even if this move would cause the target to faint. If this move is used against a Pokémon holding an item that can be lost (even if the actual item loss is prevented), it does 1.5× its usual damage. If this move would trigger that item's effect then that effect will occur before the item is removed (and the item will be consumed rather than removed if it would normally be consumed).

Neither the user nor the target can recover the lost item by any means.

If the target is Giratina holding a Griseous Orb, Genesect holding a Drive, Athlauria holding a Gilded Crown or Wilted Crown, a Pokémon with Multitype holding a Plate, or a Pokémon holding its corresponding Mega Stone, it will take damage but not lose its item. The 1.5× damage boost does not apply in these cases. If the target has Sticky Hold and its item would otherwise be lost due to Snow Throw, it will keep its item but will still take the extra damage.
