How should Ice get buffed?

Topic title basically.

As a starting point:
Resist water, normal, fairy and fighting

Lol at anything else resisting normal. Let's nerf the worse offensive type into the ground.

Real talk:

Neutral damage from stealth ro...err I mean rock type attacks.

Resistance to water.

These are the absolute minimum requirements.

I'd go with this, perhaps neutral damage to fighting as well, I mean if you punch an iceberg it really shouldn't be shattering into a million pieces.

It should maybe resist Water, I can't think of anything else.

Also better usage for Hail, it's really sucky compared to Sandstorm, Sunny Day, and Rain Dance with hardly any decent secondary effects.

If it were to be buffed it'd start with it's weaknesses and resistances. Maybe make it resist grass or something and not have it weak to rock and/or steel/fighting. Nothing absurd. Ice only sucks because it only resists itself and is weak to Stealth Rock.

I look to Karate Kid whenever I think of why ice is weak to fighting.

But yeah, make it resist water.

Really now!!! If GF is kind enough to boost rock sp.def in sand, why not ices defenses in hail?

Or maybe hail can inflict damage based on type like stealth rock.
