In battle

When an Eiscue that's in its Ice Face form is hit by a physical move, it takes no damage and changes into its Noice Face form. If a hailstorm begins while Eiscue is in its Noice Face form, or if it is sent out in its Noice Face form during hail, it will revert to its Ice Face form at the end of the turn. Eiscue will not revert to its Ice Face form if there is already hail when it changes into its Noice Face form. This form change persists even when Eiscue is switched out, but is undone at the end of the battle.

Ice Face does not protect against special moves.

Generation IX

Due to the removal of hail, Eiscue will now revert to Ice Face form during snow in whatever circumstances it would have reverted to Ice Face form in Generation VIII.

Outside of battle

Ice Face has no effect outside of battle.
