Talk:Freeze-Dry (move)

Water is mentioned countless times in the type chart. Not sure if this is an error... JEFLIV (talk) 22:18, 16 November 2013 (UTC)

It's intentional, the chart is there to demonstrate the effectiveness of the move on type combinations involving Water.--Cold (talk) 22:32, 16 November 2013 (UTC)
That's overkill. Wouldn't it be quicker just to list super-effectiveness and resistances like this? Users can figure out how it applies to dual-type Pokemon on their own. --Stratelier 05:24, 21 November 2013 (UTC)

Speaking of overkill, I personally don't think this table is necessary at all. Anyone reading the article can easily figure out on their own that the only difference between this move and other ice-type moves is the fact that it's super effective against water-type moves. That's why I don't think it should be on the page. TheBlazikenMaster (talk) 16:09, 1 December 2013 (UTC)

The page image...

I have only one peeve about the image currently used for Freeze-Dry: Tyrantrum, being part Dragon, is naturally vulnerable to Ice anyway. A better illustration would be a picture of Freeze-Drying an actual Water-type (on which it is super effective instead of resisted).

No hurry, though. :) --Stratelier 19:10, 21 November 2013 (UTC)

It's a pre-release image. --The Truth aka Relicant 19:47, 21 November 2013 (UTC)
I know. I just find it ironic that when the official site describes how Freeze-Dry is super-effective against Water, they show it being used on a dragon. --Stratelier 01:31, 30 November 2013 (UTC)

Type Effectiveness Chart

I don't think this is necessary. The only difference between whichever type-chart the battle is using (Inverse or Normal) is that it hits Water super effectively.--V4Victini (talk) 10:39, 7 January 2014 (UTC)
