Ice type Pokemon appreciation topic

#1Goten55Posted 9/11/2013 11:53:06 AM
This topic is for people who love ice type Pokemon. The people who follow the ways of Lorelei, Pryce, Glacia, Candice and Brycen.

With fairy being introduced this generation it seems that ice types might lose their niche. I for one don't want to see that happen. Anyway, lets talk Gamefaqs.

I was thinking about ways that the new Freeze skin ability could help Pokemon from previous generations. But it looks like it'll help Pokemon with more of a physical moveset over Pokemon with a special one. Like if Mamoswine got Freeze Skin; Thrash would an ice type Outrage. Giga Impact would really be destructive as well (Not that it isn't destructive already).

Ice STAB makes a world of difference, otherwise nobody would use Mamoswine over Donphan.
Freeze Skin looks like a great ability so at least it's something.
Now if only they boosted hail...

For what it's worth, I actually don't mind the Ice-type. It has some very good moves, and I really like mons like Weavile and Lapras, and even Glalie.

The problem is...well, Lapras aside, most Ice-types tend to break under direct pressure. Much like actual ice, now that I think about it.

Amarusu's freeze skin seems pretty awesome.

Ice is probably in my top 5 types. I love Lapras, Articuno, Glaceon, Weavile, Froslass, and Vanilluxe.

Really considering using Amarusu. There's just so many good Pokes this gen though -_-

I'm hoping Froslass get a new ability.Curse Body usually doesn't work that well for me and Snow Cloak is banned.

Ice is actually my 3rd favourite typing...
Fangirls are gamers too...
Only we're pretty...

Kyurem should totally get Freeze Skin, by the way.
It makes perfect sense (its skin is frozen) so TrollFreak will never do that.

Ice is one of my favorite types, but that has a lot to do with nostalgia from gen I where Pokemon couldn't thaw out from freezing.

I love them!! With their stab they can ohko any dragon with a powerful ice move such as icicle crash or ice beam. But buff their defense!!!
