Ice-type Pokémon are usually affiliated with cold weather conditions, surroundings and the abilities to manipulate ice to use for many things. Many Ice-type attacks have a chance of causing the Freeze status effect, which prevents the frozen Pokémon from attacking until it is thawed. Ice-type Pokémon are immune to the Freeze status. In the First Generation, Ice-types were the rarest of all types, and was relatively powerful, but in later generations, with the addition of more powerful Fire, Rock, and Fighting types that are vulnerable against, along with the introduction of the Steel-type, their usefulness declined.
