[[File:Ash Buizel Ice Aqua Jet.png|thumb|250px|{{AP|Buizel}} is frozen]]
In the {{pkmn|anime}}, the frozen status is literally the same as in the {{pkmn|games}}; once a Pokémon is frozen, it can't move and is open to attacks. In some cases, a [[Battle judge|referee]] may call a frozen Pokémon unable to battle.
* In ''[[EP189|Freeze Frame]]'', {{an|Jigglypuff}} was frozen, but was then thawed out by a {{m|Flamethrower}} from [[Ash's Cyndaquil]].
* In ''[[AG190|Pace - The Final Frontier!]]'', [[Ash's Pikachu]] was frozen by an Ice Beam from {{DL|Brandon's Legendary titans|Regice|Brandon's Regice}}'s Ice Beam. However, thanks to Ash's encouragement, Pikachu was able to break free from the ice with a {{m|Thunderbolt}}.
* In ''[[M10|The Rise of Darkrai]]'', {{OBP|Darkrai|M10}} was briefly frozen by an Ice Beam from {{OBP|Kai|M10}}'s {{p|Empoleon}} before the former broke out of the ice with brute force.
* In ''[[DP063|Hot Springing a Leak!]]'', [[Ash's Chimchar]], [[Brock's Sudowoodo]], [[Dawn's Piplup]], and [[Leona]]'s {{p|Swinub}}{{tt|*|as an Ice-type, Swinub should be immune to freezing}} were all frozen by Blizzard, the former two by Swinub's Blizzard, and the latter two by Sudowoodo's Blizzard, which was used via {{m|Mimic}}.
* In ''[[DP067|Crossing the Battle Line!]]'', during {{an|Dawn}}'s first [[Gym]] {{pkmn|battle}}, [[Dawn's Buneary]] briefly froze [[Maylene]]'s {{p|Meditite}} with an Ice Beam before the latter broke out of the ice with {{m|Confusion}}.
* In ''[[DP128|A Pyramiding Rage!]]'', [[Paul]]'s {{p|Lairon}} was frozen when it was hit by {{an|Brandon}}'s Regice's Ice Beam.
* In ''[[DP179|The Eighth Wonder of the Sinnoh World!]]'', [[Ash's Torterra]] was briefly frozen by a [[Type#Type effectiveness|double super effective]] {{m|Ice Punch}} from [[Volkner]]'s {{p|Electivire}} during a [[Gym]] {{pkmn|battle}} with the latter's {{pkmn|Trainer}}, before the [[Pokémon category|Continent Pokémon]] fell to the ground from the force of the punch, breaking the ice but rendering it [[Fainting|unable to battle]].
* In ''[[DP187|A Real Rival Rouser]]'', Ash's Pikachu was frozen by Paul's {{p|Froslass}}'s Ice Beam, but thawed itself out by using {{m|Volt Tackle}}.
