Avalanche (ゆきなだれ Snow Avalanche) is a damaging Ice-typemove introduced in Generation IV. The player can find it along the snowy mountain just outside of Mt. Coronet. In Generation V, this move was concidered to be the signature move of the Vanillite evolutionary family.
Avalanche is an attack move that inflicts double the damage if the user has been hurt by the foe in the same turn. It also is a low-priority move, which causes the user to attack after other Pokémon that are using ordinary priority moves.
In super contests, the points double if this move was used last to appeal.
