2 Partner Pokemon: Glaceon and Mamoswine
Why do you want to join? I've always loved ice type moves even as a kid. Eventually I realized how much cooler Ice Beam was when it was used with an actual ice type, so I tried to train more of them and really liked the type!

Ugh, I really don't like Hail. I don't battle competitively too often but I wouldn't think to use Hail since it isn't as useful as the other weather moves. Same goes for ingame battles; I never use it since I often find myself switching to non ice-types. Definitely use ice types as sweepers, though. :3 As for my favorite ice battlers.. probably Lapras or Mamoswine. Lapras makes a good tank as well as sweeper and Mamoswine has such great attack.
