Because ice IS water, just in a solid state.


this is the stupidest argument I've read today, but in fairness to you, I've been working and haven't read too many topics just yet. "ice is water!" doesn't mean anything because ice melting is no longer ice, and it is DEPENDENT ON REMAINING ICE, which water can inhibit


Maybe read the rest of my post then, instead of picking and choosing likes to take out of context.
Water becomes ice when it gets cold, Ice becomes water when it becomes warm.

That being said, water is not inherently warm, and is in fact, usually cold.
The only reason water melts ice at all is due to water being warmer than the ice(Or the water would be ice).
Considering how many water pokemon learn ice type moves, we can safely assume the water is cold.
Cold water does not melt ice, as a matter of fact, Ice resists melting in cold water.

Also, it IS NOT dependant on remaining ice, it is dependant on the Ice Pokémon's ability to generate ice, and/or freezing conditions.
What specifically about water types can negate an Ice Pokémon's natural abilities to freeze the surroundings?

It'd make more sense for the user of a water move against an ice pokemon to have a chance of being frozen

What happened when you put an ice cube in a glass of water?

It melts.


Well what happens when you dump water on frozen ground?

It freezes.

C.


And while you're at it, make Ice weak to everything.


Or just remove its Ice resistance.

Because it needs a resistance and water is fairy powerful type so nerfing it is fine. Ice also needs a rock neutrality because stealth rocks takes a big dump on every ice type not named Mamoswine.


If you're going meta, then sure. I thought maybe people had a "logical" explanation for it, which is what I would have argued with. Makes sense.


If you are wanting a logical argument I would have to say ice should resist water because ice IS water, just frozen.


What happened when you put an ice cube in a glass of water?

It melts.


Ice melts when you put in on grass, or ground, or rocks, or birds, or martial artists, or electrical objects, or a dragon, or pretty much anything. Thus ice should be weak to everything.

C/D Scald should be super effective against Ice

Only if all other Water-type moves are resisted by Ice.

Solar beam should be super effective against dark. Not because light>dark. Instead, it would be because of the team laser finishing moves.
