An explanation inexplicable. They are beautiful and cute for the most part. Unfortunately they are so few have this kind of type!
I will be glad to see more of Ice-Type Pokémon to be honnest.

With the experience of fighting Pokémon, I see mainly in OverUsed teams that there is only one Pokémon often used. About the power that is too bad that side. But on the other hand, they are so cute and graceful.
And on the other hand, I love the snow. The snow and calm atmosphere.

Current topic:
It would be Glaceon without one doubt.
Glaceon is graceful, with her ​​pretty little bangs. And it has remained my favorite Pokémon Leafeon. I love to use them in a double.
I love to use Glaceon with Abomansnow theheh.

Current Topic: What is your favorite ice types and why?
My favorite ice types are a toss up between Beartic and Mamoswine. Both very big, powerfull, and adorably fluffy(more so mamoswine). Theyre also based on some of my favorite aninals. Overall I think theyre both awesome.

Glalie, has been since I first saw it in the anime. I just think it's an amazing all-round Pokemon; powerful, charming, cunning.

Who said sign-up forms need to be long?

O.o ....Ok my least favorite is Jynx. Sorry for all you Jynx fans out there but, its just so disturbing to me Dx, and I rarely say that. Whats worse is that during her sprite animate her lips oscillate >.> . Smoochum is kinda cute imo but Jynx? Naw...But be honest. Who would want to be kissed by jynx?

Only one name Delibird.
Because it is Delibird.
No...Really...Delibird is one of the worst Pokémon that I have ever seen!
It is so useful that it helps better opponent than his own trainer, is that not crazy? :3
Anyway it is nice to fill your party with Delibird when it is Christmas xD
Delibird is well designed in my opinion, and funny, but so usless...What a pity!

Oh, there is only one thing that Delibird is useful in Christmas, or even, the other days...Here is you answer:

why the shocked expression?? xD XD
brock would like to be kissed by jynx xD XD

My least favorite Ice-Type is Cryognal. It's hideous and it is kinda weird.
Another one I'm not so fond of is Glalie, it just looks... quite frightening, actually And it has a constant angry face, like what are you so mad about you're a floating ice ball xD It's just creepy.

Spoiler:
Umm.... Maybe the value of a pokemon isnt measured in its effectiveness in battle but a trainer's general fondness of it as a pokemon? Thinking about it, I would say like deliberd not because how often it could win me matches, but how Deliberd is portrayed as a happy-go-lucky pokemon that likes to share nice gifts with others. Ya dont like how deliberd performs in battles? Then why dont ya go take your lucky pokemon to PokeStar studios, pokemon contest, pokemon musical or something. That way you can both have fun .

I always thought cryogonal and glalie to be like cousins or something. But yea I do agree that their appearences are somewhat uninviting. Especially if you ran into an angry Glalie in an Ice Cave PX. Cryogonal cuz...i dunno cyborg like pokemon that also lack the visible facial features kinda weird me out too. But I always thought Ash's Glalie to be kinda cute .

@Avishka Sorry to bother but my Beartic's sprite isnt showing up in the member's pannel

Deliberd in terms of usefulness. I mean, it only has one move in its movepool, a limited movepool through TMs and Tutors, and has horrendous base stats as well as a double weakness to Rock. No thanks.

Design-wise, I'd say Snorunt. I doesn't even look like an Ice Type. Eh.

Definitely Jynx, it looks hideous and a poor defensive typing not to mention she was involved in racist controversy? I actually hated her looks to start off with.

Delibird may look cute, but its stats and movepool suck as well as a double Rock weakness. I do like using it for Christmas though.

In terms of uniqueness what instantly comes to mind is Rotom-Frost. Not only is it the only Ice-Electric type but can also rotate through numerous forms to acheive different types and advantages. I beleive rotom is unique in that reguard.

rotom is an unique pokemon :3
...the Pokémon that instantly came to my head was Froslass. Ice/Ghost is an incredibly surprising type combination and it's design is unique and This "body" resembles a kimono xD XD

I would also say the vanillish line would also be unique as the only "Edible" ice type. Not that i would ever try >.>. My friend said that if you would try eating a Vanilluxe it would freeze you from the inside.

Well, if I try to eat ice cream, it freezes my brain (My little brain haha)
I can not imagine a vanillish xD

Cryogonal looks unique for me, by it's design and physicaly speaking.
A large snowflake, which still scares me...

Type speaking, I think Rotom is the best one. As CourageHound said, it can rotate to achieve its advantages and all. And its form are really funny xD
Seriously, a fridge! Haha

It's really adorable as a Shiny, with a beautiful mix of a green-blue.

Some other mentions include Froslass, the Snover line and Vanillite line. And again it's cos I like the color schemes. I might also mention Jynx, despite being one of my most-hated Ice Pokemon, it does have a nice pink color when shiny which makes up for that.
