Hail

Shouldnt hail be under damage-dealing moves, since technically it does damage every turn?Jaller95 14:03, 21 July 2010 (UTC)

no because hail does not damage direct, what damage is the weather --Hanmac 14:08, 21 July 2010 (UTC)

Offensive Position

I think that Ice is on par with Rock offensively. Proof: More Pokémon are quad weak to to Ice than any other type. There are some Pokémon who quad resist Ice, nearly all who are also part-Ice. There are only two Pokémon who quad resist Ice and aren't Ice-types themselves: Empoleon and Heatran, who are part- Steel-type, the best type defensively in the game (Resists 11 types, and immune to one other). In comparison, Rock is quad resisted by only four Pokémon, and Ice is quad resisted by numerous other Pokémon, but only two aren't Ice-types themselves. So, Ice is pretty much one of the best types offensively, to me. KirbyRider 23:46, 9 March 2012 (UTC)

So... you're just saying Ice is the best type? Frozen Fennec 23:57, 9 March 2012 (UTC)
I'm saying it's one of the best types, and is arguably comparable to Rock. Go read its offensive-wise info. --KirbyRider 20:59, 23 March 2012 (UTC)

"There are more Pokémon with double weaknesses to Ice than any other type."

Err... if I counted properly... It gave me 17 double weakness to Ice and FRIGGIN 27 to Grass, and Grass had more since Gen I (1/5/10/16/17 for Ice and 10/15/20/23/27 for Grass). If I am wrong then... derp. Marked +-+-+ 20:54, 27 March 2012 (UTC)

Frost Rotom

Frost Rotom is mentioned as not having more weaknesses than resistances and immunities, but it does. The Electric type cancels out the Steel weakness and adds resistance to Flying and Electric, but also adds a weakness to Ground, making the totals 3 resistances and 4 weaknesses. So Froslass is the only Ice Pokémon that breaks even. AsbestosBill 18:22, 1 April 2012 (UTC)

It's counting Levitate, making the Ground weakness an immunity. - Blazios talk 18:48, 1 April 2012 (UTC)
Oh. Of course. My bad. AsbestosBill 17:50, 11 April 2012 (UTC)

Bug type?

Okay why is it that in the Ice-type section there's a mention of bug types? And I'm not talking about the compare attack stats and what not. In the little triva section it says, and I qoute "Generation I introduced the most Ice-type moves of any Generation, with six and Generation II introduced the least Bug-type moves, with two." That should be Ice-type moves right? I don't want to argue with people who obviously know a whole lot more about Pokemon than me, but I'm pretty sure that's wrong. And this is how you sign right?

Looks like a copypaste error to me. G50 fixed it shortly after you left your comment. Werdnae (talk) 20:34, 9 June 2012 (UTC)

Generation with the least number of ice types introduced

The trivia section states: "Generation V introduced the most Ice-type Pokémon of any generation, with eight, and Generation II introduced the least Ice-type Pokémon, with five."

The five introduced in Generation II were as follows: Sneasel, Swinub, Piloswine, Delibird, and Smoochum.

I feel the trivia should state that both generation I & II introduced five pokemon,and are therefore tied for the least number introduced in a generation. The generation I Pokemon being: Dewgong, Cloyster, Jynx, Lapras, and Articuno.

Weird. I wonder why it wasn't there already? Thanks for pointing it out. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 08:39, 29 September 2013 (UTC)
