Snorunt (Japanese: ユキワラシ Yukiwarashi) is an Ice-type Pokémon. It evolves into either Glalie starting at level 42 or, if female, Froslass when exposed to a Dawn Stone.



Snorunt is a small, black Pokémon with an egg-shaped body, round fingerless hands and toeless feet. It has blue eyes and a upside down grin. This grin, along with how it is usually posed, gives Snorunt the expression of shivering. Snorunt's body is covered with a yellow cone-shaped cloak with an orange rim. The back of the cloak has three orange rhombus-shaped spots on it.

Gender differences

There are no physical differences; however, female Snorunt are able to evolve into Froslass when exposed to radiation from a Dawn Stone.

Special abilities

Snorunt is capable of several ice moves, such as Ice Beam and Avalanche. Snorunt apparently has powerful jaws, since it can learn Crunch and Ice Fang.


They usually move about in small groups of about five or so. Snorunt are also social creatures, known to visit houses and greet humans.


Snorunt live in icy caverns, but they're quite hard to find. They can withstand cold of -150 degrees Fahrenheit (-100 degrees of Celsius).


Snorunt's diet mainly consists of snow and ice.
