C/D: Is this the generation where Ice finally stops being crap?

Ice got some really terrible Pokemon added to it's arsenal last Gen, and the game surrounding them got even nastier with more Fighting types running around. The only standout is Kyurem, who isn't that great anyway and needed a new form to be any good.

Ice really needs an injection of super-buff in Gen VI. Like Bug-Types got in Gen V.

Fact: Things are so much better when taken at face value.

I don't see why not. Bug and Fighting types seemed to have gotten special treatment last gen, so why not Ice this gen?

That would be neat, but with Game Freak you never know. And while we are at it, Ice is great offensively, it's only crap defensively; and Poison needs more love too.

Ice already has great offensive moves with great distribution. Its not like bug type was prior to gen 4 where its best move was limited to mostly non-bug pokemon. The problem is that short of tweaking its weaknesses as a defensive type there's nothing you can do to really improve ice in anyway.

Ice moves are really good.

But Ice Pokemon generally suck. Not because of their weaknesses, but because of lack of good ability and moves.

Ice Pokemon can be really good and interesting (Mamoswine), but are hampered by really bad design.
