I was trying to pet IcyU (my Cryogonal) but the hand kept freezing and becoming immobile lol. IcyU would also have ? Marks hover over it's head it was sad lol

You have to have a pokemon with flame body in the same party to counter the ice, otherwise your trainer catches on freeze.

You can buy a $500 console and a $500 computer and have two crap machines, or you can spend $1000 building your own computer and have the best of both worlds.

Wait, so you just need an Ice Body pokemon to pet Slugma?

I think Cryogonal is just the Ice type's equivalent of Slugma in that it can't be touched at all (And no, having something with Flame Body doesn't do anything).

I'm kind of surprised Rotom isn't the same.

That's a good question. I'm not sure if he's joking or not, though.

I do know I was able to touch Aururus without my hand freezing (except for if I touched those little ice crystals), so I assume its just when you touch pure ice that you freeze. Ice types like Aururus, Jynx, Articuno and Dewgong are likely exempt from the "No touching" rule. That said, you probably shouldn't be touching Jynx anyway...

Ok lol so that guy was lying?

I went to pet my Chandelure right after and had no problems. Except I don't think I tried touching the fire lol

Nevermind.

There are spots you can touch it without getting frozen, which are the top left and top right protrusions on its body.

It likes being touched on one of them, but dislikes the other.

I've been wondering how the player can pet Gastly: it's a ball of gas/spirit stuff...>_>

Ok interesting. So I probably can't touch Avalugg? But Beartic would be ok, except maybe the beard lol. What's wrong with Jynx?
