Froslass (Japanese: ユキメノコ Yukimenoko) is a dual-type Ice/Ghost Pokémon introduced in Generation IV.

It evolves from a female Snorunt when exposed to a Dawn Stone. It is one of Snorunt's final forms, the other being Glalie.

Biology

Froslass is a humanoid Pokémon with a hollow torso that resembles a kimono. It wears a red band around its waist, reminiscent of an Obi. Its body lacks feet and it floats in the air like its counterpart, Glalie. Its arms are connected to the sides of its head, and flare at the wrists. The flared portion has dappled, light blue coloration. Its hands consist of three small fingers. Froslass's head is shaped similar to a sideways water droplet, and is topped with two ice crystals that resemble horns. Its head has several holes on it, resembling a mask. Through two of these holes, crystal blue eyes with yellow sclera can be seen. It also has a mouth below this "mask".

Froslass lives in snowy areas and has the ability to freeze foes with its -58 degrees Fahrenheit breath. It is thought to display its victims secretly after freezing them. As evidenced in the anime, it can create illusions to manipulate others. Froslass is a female only species, and is said in legends to be the spirit of a woman who was lost in the mountains.

In the anime

Froslass in the anime

Major appearances

Froslass made its anime debut in The Drifting Snorunt! where one kidnapped Dawn's Piplup and Meowth forcing Ash, Dawn, Brock, and Team Rocket to help her by saving her friend Snorunt from a poacher.

Paul used a Froslass during his Full Battle against Ash in the Lily of the Valley Conference in A Real Rival Rouser!. Froslass battled against Ash's Pikachu but was eventually defeated after a hard-fought match.

Minor appearances

A Froslass first appeared in a brief cameo in the movie Giratina and the Sky Warrior where it helped Ash's friends stop the glacier.

A Coordinator's Froslass was seen on TV in Unlocking the Red Chain of Events! participating in a Double Performance along with a Lucario.

Pokédex entries

Episode Pokémon Source Entry
DP116 Froslass Dawn's Pokédex Froslass, the Snow Land Pokémon and an evolved form of Snorunt. It freezes its opponents to temperatures nearly minus sixty degrees.
This concludes the entries from the Diamond & Pearl series.

In the manga

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

A Froslass first appeared under the ownership of Candice in To and Fro with Froslass, where she is presented as her secret weapon to battle Platinum. Due to her Rapidash and his speed, her attacks rarely hit, and didn't dish out much damage due to the type matchup, but the moment Platinum ordered him to use Rest, her Wake-Up Slap dealt out lethal damage, forcing her to recall him. Then, after Platinum's Lopunny managed to defeat Candice's Abomasnow, and Froslass seemed to have the battle won when Lopunny fainted as well, she was finally beaten by Rapidash. Platinum, revealing that she had Lopunny faint herself with her Healing Wish, Candice handed her the Icicle Badge, and the three head out to Lake Acuity. This Froslass is later given to Platinum at the Spear Pillar.

Trivia

Origin

Froslass is most likely based on Yuki-onna, a female ice-spirit of Japanese folklore.

Name origin

Froslass is a combination of frost and lass.

Yukimenoko may be a combination of 雪 yuki (snow) and 女の子 menoko (archaic word for girl). Kimeno also sounds like a corruption of 着物 kimono.
