Snover is a snow-covered tree-like Pokémon with a white top body and a brown bottom body. If male, it will be two-thirds brown and two-thirds white. It has three points on top of its head and green eyes. It has stubby feet and a green tail, as well as two green spikes on its back that resemble pinecones. Its hand is made up of five cones: a huge core cone with four smaller cones around it. Snover’s stomach is covered with edible white Berries.

Snover’s natural predator, Galarian Darumaka, enjoys eating the Berries produced by Snover. As a consequence, Abomasnow often chases them away in order to protect it. Snover spends the warm seasons on snowy peaks, but migrates down when the temperature cools. It is an inquisitive Pokémon that often approaches humans and may be seen investigating footsteps in the snow. Snover is said to have visited human communities and formed bonds with the children who lived there. Snover may dip its feet into the snow to collect water, which helps it cool off.
