Being part Poison or part Grass can be a good thing. See Ferrothorn or Drapion. Being part Ice can ruin a Pokémon. See Walrein or Regice.


Looking at Smogon's (lol) current OU list, the only Ice-types are Cloyster, Mamoswine, and Kyurem-B who's clearly only here because his typing has kept him out of Ubers. Grass has Breloom, Venusaur, Ferrothorn, and Celebi, and Poison includes Gengar, Venusaur, and Tentacruel.

Most of those are just really good Pokemon anyway. Venusaur and Cloyster are there pretty much only because they got rescued with really great, fitting abilities this gen. So I wonder if it's actually typing that's kept Ice-types out or just bad Pokemon design in general. See Weavile and its miserable STAB moves.

Cloyster's had Skill Link since Gen 4, it just got Shell Smash this gen, which boosted it into OU.

Poison and Grass are far worse types than Ice. Ice may be horrible defensively, but it's also one of the best and most popular attacking types. Poison and Grass, however, get nothing. Grass Knot and Toxic. That's about it.

Being part Poison or part Grass can be a good thing. See Ferrothorn or Drapion. Being part Ice can ruin a Pokémon. See Walrein or Regice.


What I see is:-
a) 4x to Fire
b) 2x to Ground.

Everyone and their mother learns Toxic and EQ. And flamethrower is a staple move.

That's even better proof of how bad the Ice type is.

Cloyster has one of the 2 most overpowered types in the game, but it still couldn't make OU unless it had both Skill Link AND Shell Smash

Offensivelly, ice is an excellent type. Grass is quite useful when mixed with other types. But poison don't add anything to any pokemon, the only good pokemon i can think off which is poison type is gengar, but he has a lot of other things going for him.
