The ice tile is featured in Generation II, III, IV, and V. There are two types.

Slippery ice tile

When the player moves onto this tile, they will slide in the direction which they walk. They will continue sliding in this direction until they hit an obstacle or land on another form of tile. This type of ice tile was first introduced in Generation II. Its most prominent use is in Mahogany Gym and Ice Path; it has continued to be featured in all generations since. The slippery ice tile is used to create maze-like puzzles, in which the player has to work out which way to slide and what obstacles to hit in order to continue. It has also been used in Shoal Cave, Icefall Cave, Snowpoint Gym, and Snowpoint Temple. A similar slippery tile is used in the Trick House, though it is not made of ice.

Cracked ice tile

This form of tile was first introduced in Ruby and Sapphire in Sootopolis Gym. If a player walks on the tile once, the ice becomes cracked. If the player walks over a cracked tile, the ice will break and the player will fall through to a cavern below. This type of tile was also featured alongside the slippery variety in FireRed and LeafGreen in Icefall Cave.
