Anime

Cryogonal appeared in Caution: Icy Battle Conditions!, as one of Brycen's Pokémon. Multiple Cryogonal are seen when they're with their master: Kyurem in the movie called "Kyurem VS The Sword of Justice", and they also appear in "Team Eevee and the Pokémon Rescue Squad!".

Trivia

  • Cryogonal is currently the only non-legendary, pure Ice-type to not have a branching or linear evolution.
  • Currently, Cryogonal, Dhelmise, Minior & Mew are the only genderless Pokémon that can learn Attract (although they can only learn Attract via TM), however, the move always fails.
  • Cryogonal is the only Ice-type Pokémon that can learn Haze despite it being an Ice-type move.
  • Cryogonal, Delibird & Lapras are the only Ice-type Pokémon that don't have an evolutionary line or alternate form and are also not Legendary Pokémon.

Origin

Cryogonal is based on a snowflake.

Etymology

Its English name is a combination of the words "cryo-" (the Latin word for ice and cold) and "hexagonal" (the Pokémon's hexagon-shaped body). Cryogonal's ability to transform into water vapor and rise up may be based on the concept of evaporation (one of the stages of the water cycle).
