Okay, I know this sounds REALLY, REALLY, weird, but this thread is dedicated to the Neo Team Rocket leader, also known as Mask of Ice. He's so....original. And how more evil can you get than kidnapping children? So, who else likes him, and why?

You know what's more evil about him? That no one knew about his activities for like 6 years and he was actually a GYM LEADER! I mean how more discraceful can you get?!

Mask or Ice is cool.
He kidnapped kids and STILL kept up his reputaton of a seemingly normal gym leader.
You gotta be smart to do that.
BTW. I've always wondered, why did he choose Blue? We all know he chose Silver because Giovanni's his dad.. but why Blue?

Maybe there's something special about Blue that hasn't been revealed in the Manga yet.

Yeah!!! That kills me; why did he choose Blue? Maybe she could determine evolution at a young age.

He chose children of multiple backgrounds. Silver had a more elite background, being the son of Giovanni, whereas Blue probably had a more humble, meager living.

I like him because hes one of the most evil characters but he isn't planing on "world domination" which is refreshing =)
He was also doing all that to save his Laprases(I love Lapras). Can you imagine spending 10 YEARS kidnapping children, taking over Team Rocket and taking control of two legendaries so you could save your Laprases? Some people wouldn't even go that far for their friends :/

Brilliant villain. The ending is so weird though, makes you want to think what really happened to Pryce.

My most scary part was when they revealed him. That humanoid figure was freaky.

Hmm... Mask of Ice is a poor person actually. He is actually, Pryce the oldest Gym Leader. When he was young, he lost his precious Lapras parents I think. Until he older and older, he planned many years and kidnap children to help him because he wants the Lapras back. To get the Lapras back, he has to get Celebi. And it's no use he's being good when he's Mask of Ice. Because no ones will give him a special Pokeball, help him without using "evil".

Makes you think....by the time he had everything planned out and ready, he was too old to do it without difficulty due to his age....

Anyway, about why is Mask of Ice chose Blue...
Here's my theory. In the Pokemon League, the winner is always Pallet Town trainers. That's mean Pallet Town trainers are strong or something. And Red, Green and Blue are the future champion when they were 5... So this could be maybe Mask of Ice chose her.
The other reason also can be, Blue has a very smart brain... She has many tricks.. So this could be also Mask of Ice chose her.
About the Evolution Ability, it's not suppose to be possible. Because in the GSC Saga, Silver or Blue said they learnt Evolution and Exchange"Trade" when they were young while they were kidnapped.

i fell sorry for what happened to the mask of ice
he got lost in time...or what
he was working hard, but in the end, he did not get his lapras

Pryce's one interesting character.....I hope he'll return on the DP saga as a good guy, riding a Mamoswine and the Lapras whose parents he was going to save.

Maybe he'll appear somewhere in Snowpoint....

That's impossible, dude. His body already destroy when he lost the Rainbow and Silver feathers and he was destroyed. I wonder why Gold can come out... Maybe in the time and space, Gold was saved by Celebi?

Hmmm...that makes a lot of sense.

I wish that they went further into what happened to him. I mean, how can he be trapped in time? That would kinda suck, except for spying on people through time and then laughing about it^_^

Any theories about what you think happened?

Also, I wish that they would have shown what Blue and Silver's childhoods were like, aside from "Escape" and the Last Battle chapters. What was so horrible about the training? Escape was only about their, well, escape. If you do the math, Blue and Silver were with the Mask of Ice for four years. What happened during those years? Maybe I'm just asking too many questions....

i think, they learnt about pokemon exchange and evolution and for sure about battles
if only there were more chapters about the past of those two
after seing the chapter "escape" i think the mask of ice took good care of them, well i think that, because of the page where all of them were unmasked and happy (ice sculptures)
that would represent pryce's love for the six of them

If he knew what their real faces looked like, why didn't he just show them to his underlings after they escaped, making them easier to capture? But then again, that could also be a sign of affection.....maybe he thought of them like his children...

I can only think of Dialga. Maybe we can find out what happened to him.

Good idea.....but then again, the writers probably aren't planning on putting him into the story again....

I alwyas thought he picked Blue because of the giant age year difference..

He chose few kids that he doesn't know and a prodigy known as Silver.

Maybe it was just random?

Anyway, what form of him do you like the best? I like it when he gets SUPER pissed at Gold and Crys and his mask grows horns or.....something. That was pretty cool, a lot more intimidating than his regular form. Which do you like?

They won't probaly make Mask of Ice re-appear in other Saga anymore. Because, Pryce died in the Time and Space... You all didn't read the GSC Volume 15? When Silver put his hand into the little wood house of Space and TIme, Silver's hand is gonna break or destroy inside the Space and Time and Crystal said "Becareful! You can't put your hand like that". And Gold said only the one who has Rainbow and Silver Feathers can be able to go inside. Why Pryce can go inside the Space and Time? Because when he used Lugia and Ho-Oh to attack the Pokemon League, he took Lugia's and Ho-Oh's feathers as known as Silver and Rainbow Feathers. So that's why he was able to enter the Space and Time. When Gold went away from Crystal and Silver, he left the two feathers and Gold defeated Pryce, released Celebi, Pryce's Lapras went back to their parents and Pryce has lost the feathers. Oh, maybe Celebi rescued Gold so Gold can alive. Pryce won't be able to be back he's died.

that's too bad
it would be great having him as ally in emerald chapter...or diamond and pearl chapter

Wallace Berlitz
November 9th, 2008, 06:35 PM
Nah~ I think he become a good guy better. But I'm not very interested of him so whatever he is, I don't really care XD
But he's the greatest enemy in GSC!

he's great as a good guy and as a bad guy

You know what I've noticed? In every media, Pryce is bitter up until the end. Maybe the creators are suggesting that all old men are bitter(I don't really think that, because of my grandpas)

RivalGator

I am in love with this thread. I can't think of anyone in the entire Pokemon world better than the Masked Man.

No, not all old men are bitter. Actually, I find that most older people are more wonderful and reliable than younger people. I love the Masked Man because he is so mean, but he is totally determined and strong. He stands for what he believes in and he misses his Glacier so much that he'll go through anything to get it back. It really messed him up, which means that he really cared about something and has emotions in there somewhere, but they are just totally wrecked up.

I love him.

bleh! mask of ice wasn't cool enough for MY attention.

I only like pokemon with claws for god's sake.

Heh! gotta go!

CLAW YA LATER!!!!

^Then why did you post in this thread?

ANYWAY. Mask of Ice. Favorite villain of all time, hands down. I loved his backstory, and I love how he was shown to not be all that bad. A hypocrite who nearly destroyed Silver and Blue's lives because his lapras died...but at the same time, it's just something so HUMAN. He was selfish, he was cruel...but at the same time, he was a sad, lonely old man who just wanted his lapras back.

Also, for why he chose Blue...I imagine Palletspawn + her intelligence. She's always been shown as incredibly smart, so I could imagine that PLUS the fact she hit the three year age gap he wanted for all the kids.

Now that the HGSS chapter is starting, maybe we will see him again.

He didn't die or anything, so they might of kept him alive so that he could come back later.

He's the main villain in my Pokemon Game. I'm making him more evil than he was in the manga. I found the best laugh ever for him.

Hint: Shishio's death laugh in Episode 60 of Ruroni Kenshin, english dub.

I love this guy, he's so awesome. And he makes Delibird evil. I wish he would appear in the anime or the next pokemon game. But, yeah right...

They must continue his story in HGSS.

And they WILL. This is not the Pokemon Anime, where they want to make the fans forget about old plots. PokeSpe is usually consistent and I'm sure that the unfinished story of Mask of Ice will play a crucial role in HGSS saga.

Also, I'm wondering who's replacing Pryce in Mahogany Gym.
