Ice-type Pokémon stand out for being able to endure very low temperatures, as well as adapting to freezing weathers. They control ice at will. Their habitats go from the top of mountains, frozen caves and caverns or even the poles.
Many Ice-type moves have chances of freezing the target, which prevents them from attacking until they thaw out.
Famous Ice-type Pokémon Trainers include Lorelei, a member of the Kanto Elite Four; Pryce, the seventh Gym Leader of the Johto region's Mahogany Town; Glacia, a member of the Hoenn Elite Four; Candice, the seventh Gym Leader of Sinnoh's Snowpoint City; Brycen, once a Gym Leader in Unova, and Wulfric, the last Gym Leader in Kalos.
