( Ice type こおりタイプ Kōri taipu in Japanese) is one of the eighteen Pokémon elemental types.
Ice-type Pokémon stand out for being able to endure very low temperatures, as well as adapting to freezing weathers. They control ice at will. Their habitats go from the top of mountains, frozen caves and caverns or even the poles.
Many Ice-type moves have chances of freezing the target, which prevents them from attacking until they thaw out.
