Freeze Shock is an Ice-type special move introduced in Generation V, and Black Kyurem's signature move.


Freeze Shock is a two-turn attack move. On the turn it is selected in, it charges its attack. This charge turn can be skipped if the user is holding a Power Herb. On the following turn, the user will shoot electrically charged ice to deal damage.


In Battle

It has a 30% chance of paralyzing the target.

Despite the move taking up two turns, it only counts as one turn. If Freeze Shock is not fully executed, PP will not be deducted from it, and it will not count as the last move used. If the target uses Mirror Move during the turn that the user is charging, Mirror Move will copy the move that the user executed immediately before using Freeze Shock (or fail if it can't).

Sleep, freeze, partial trapping, and flinching will pause but not disrupt the duration of Freeze Shock.
