Why does Game Freak keep making defensive Ice-types?

Are they confusing Ice and Steel?

It is, but all that Defense goes to waste on such a terrible defensive type.

How is it terrible? I was planning on using one, but you just crushed my hopes.

Ice is the reason it is terrible. If it was pretty much any other type it would be amazing

Ice is pretty much among the worst defensive types.

Ice type only has 1 resistance and a few common weaknesses.
Defensively.....yeah
But Avalugg is a pretty good defensive ice type, can take a Blaze Kick or 2 to the face. However, all it takes is an ember to cripple it.

It's a solid candidate for the dubious honor of 'worst defensive typing'. Maybe alongside Grass and Rock.
