Vanillite is a small Pokémon that resembles an ice cream cone with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for a head. Vanillite's head is covered with white snow that resembles a swirled scoop of vanilla ice cream. Beneath the snowy cover, Vanillite's head is made of the same icy material as its light blue, semi-translucent body. It is possible for the snowy material covering its head to melt if exposed to high temperatures. Vanillite has light blue ovular eyes with dark blue pupils, a small dark-blue mouth, and a diamond-shaped ice crystal on each cheek. Its small body is sprinkled with particles of ice, and has short icy arms. The cylindrical bottom part of its body resembles a small ice cream cone made of translucent bluish ice.
Vanillite can create small snowstorms by producing ice crystals in the atmosphere with its freezing breath.
