How can we improve the ice type?

It has a ton of weaknesses and isreally bad defensively, and all of the ice types seem to have really bad movepools and stats for some reason.

There needs to be a move, or an item, or something that makes them more viable. Or just a few really good ice types.

I mean sure it was probably a waste of time to ev train a glaceon but yeah...

I always found ground to be the most boring type but they always end up being high tier

Ice types kill Garchomp. My favourite pokemon.

I'm fine with the Ice type staying weak.

Really GF need to make an effort to make all of the weaker types viable, ice was just the first to come to mind. Now that I think about it poison is worse.

Ice is an offensive type, not a defensive.

This. Otherwise we'll be arguing over how many weaknesses Rock or Grass has instead. Future Ice Pokémon should be at least 1 speed point faster than Chomp (or whatever dominates future battles) and carry anti-priority moves or abilities (not counting Quick Guard).

Gamefreak should stop Distributing Ice-type's stats as if they're going to Wall anything.

They made a moon base to survey my standards but they have yet to make visual contact.

They can't do the base stat allocation just on countering one Pokémon. If Garchomp is a concern you should have other Pokémon to deal with him.
