How and how often do you use Ice types in battle?
Mamoswine, Froslass, Frost-Rotom, Articuno, Regice, Weavile; they're all wonderful! There's not really much to discuss about those Pokémon though since their battle styles are all very much famous - especially my main Pokémon Mamoswine x]

What would you say we could do about fixing that? My best bet would be to teach it non-Ice moves to deal with them effective types, but that's obviously not a good cure-all strategy.

What do all of you say?
Interesting... Well, I think the best way is to go for out-speeding the opponent. I mean, the majority of Ice types do get a huge speed stat so it's not really a huge problem when it comes to being faster than the enemy. The only problem is that with things like Mach Punch/Bullet Punch where you're up against priority moves, this strategy certainly ain't going to work ;; I guess other than out-speeding, you'd just have to buff their defenses with as many items or moves as you can before all the rocks, fists and metal start pounding into you whilst setting you on fire. x]
