Are there any pure Ice-type Pokémon that you think should have a secondary typing? If so, which typing would that be? I used to be convinced that Glalie was half Dark. Also, Cryogonal seems like it should be Ice/Steel with its almost mechanical appearance.

Are there any non-Ice-type Pokémon that you think should've been Ice-type? Piplup line and Suicune, though I guess the latter wouldn't have fit the legend of the Burned Tower had it been.

Are there any Ice-type Pokémon you think shouldn't be Ice-type? I don't really get Cloyster being an Ice-type, but I'm cool with it.

Ice hasn't been combined with Normal or Poison yet. Additionally, Ice has only been combined with Fire in a temporary form (Zen Mode Galar Darmanitan). Do you have any ideas for what an Ice-type Pokémon combined with any of these types would look like? (You can also use a new Regional Form for this if you want.) Obviously some kind of pun on "frostbite" for Ice/Poison. Maybe a Regional Zubat/Golbat/Crobat or a brand new bat Pokémon?

First up, sorry I've been a bit of a cold club member of late ;)

Glalie should definitely be Ice / Dark imo, especially with Froslass being Ice / Ghost. I agree that Eiscue should have been Ice(d) / Water!


Are there any Non-Ice type Pokemon that you think should have been Ice Type? Are there any Ice Type pokemon you think shouldn't be Ice Type?

I think the Horsea line could have been Water / Ice, just look at them! Dratini and Dragonair always looked icy too, Dragonite obviously less so. Sign me up for a regional Altaria that is Fairy / Ice pls :)

I would love to see a an Ice / Poison branch of the Nidoqueen/king line!


Btw, Jynx is half Ice type because it is at least partially based on Yuki-onna!

Did anyone else expect the new Hisuian Zorua and Zoroark to be Ice type? I was surprised to see it was normal/ghost! Either way it really looks like something that is a cute little icy boy and I love him. ;w; Is it just me?

It looks like one to me yes, but Wyrdeer looked like an Ice type to me too so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
😅
I like the new Zorua, dunno how to feel about zoroark yet.

omg... can I join? Ice types are like one of my favourites in the series and have been since Gen 1!!!! So much so, that I'd love to pick Articuno as my Guardian! I'll go ahead and answer the first post questions:

-What is/are your favorite Ice Type Pokemon?
Articuno hands down.

-Have you ever used an Ice Type on any of your playthrough teams? If yes, do you remember which one it was and/or in which game?
Aye aye aye, I've played so many runs of most of the games that I've probably used them all minus like Gen 8 ones, so I'll go moreso with the favourites I've used, which are 100% Cloyster and Sneasel in my Gen 2 runs, I almost always used one if not both of the critters!

Of course you can, there is no deadline for signing up =p
Nor for the questions btw if you saw any more you want to answer 😉
I've gone and added them all to the opening post in a spoiler, figured it would be more convenient for people who join later on than sifting though all the posts =D
Not that you absolutely have to answer each and every question or anything =p

Anyway, you have been admitted to the Glacial Gathering through your Guardian: Articuno.

What are some of your favorite snowy/icy location(s) in any of the games? (Snowy routes... Icy caverns etc.)

The Unova games had seasons. Did you like this mechanic? How do you feel about the Winter season in them?

Deerling/Sawsbuck had forms based on the current season. Do you like the idea of mons having seasonal forms? Do you think one of their typings should be adjusted along with the season? Or perhaps a different ability or move they can only have/use in a particular season?

In SM/USUM a new Evolution stone was introduced for the regional Ice Types: the Ice Stone.
Before Sw/Sh Eevee needed to be in a specific location in order to evolve into Glaceon. In SwSh this has been replaced by the Ice Stone. If Crabrawler were to be in SwSh it would probably have received the same treatment.
Do you think this is a good change? Do you prefer the location based evolutions for Ice Types such as Glaceon or the new Ice Stones?


For those who watch the Anime: Are there any moments from the Anime that are set in a snowy or icy location that you find particularly memorable?
For those who collect or play the TCG: Are there any Ice mon cards (I believe they are Water type in the TCG?) that you think have a great snow/ice locale on the background? Or perhaps you just like the picture as a whole?
Feel free to share any pictures if you have any =3
Also, you can ofc reply to these last 2 questions even if you don't actively follow the Anime or TCG if something came to mind =3

Also, I stumbled on a short article on the 'evolution of Ice' places, linking it in case anyone wants to read it: https://pokejungle.net/2017/12/19/ice-appreciation-frozen-places/

My own Answers:
Spoiler:

What is/are some of your favorite snowy/icy location(s) in any of the games? (Snowy routes/cities... Icy caverns etc.)

Route 17 (Mamoswine Road) in X/Y! I really liked plowing through the snow riding on Mamoswine's back =D
I sometimes just used Repels so I could keep playing around in it without being hit by random encounters ^.^

I also liked being able to sink almost all the way into the snow in DPPt (route 217 I think? 216?).
And the Shiver Snowfields in New Snap just look really pretty. ^.^

The Unova games had seasons. Did you like this mechanic? How do you feel about the Winter season in them?

Yes! There were even some areas you couldn't access unless it was the right season iirc.
I really loved the idea and wish it didn't immediately get scrapped next gen to never return (except for maybe in gen 5 remakes I guess).
I really liked seeing everything covered in snow too when it was Winter =D

Deerling/Sawsbuck had forms based on the current season. Do you like the idea of mons having seasonal forms? Do you think one of their typings should be adjusted along with the season? Or perhaps a different ability or move they can only have/use in a particular season?

I do like the idea, but feel like the amount of mons you could do this with would be limited.
I've always wished this Pokemon line would change types based on what season it is. Either the Summer or Autumn Form would be Normal/Grass, with the other one becoming maybe Grass/Bug or Grass/Ground. Spring form could be Grass/Fairy. Winter form would definitely be Grass/Ice though!
A Seasonal move to match the typing could definitely fit too!
I don't think there's a need to swap abilities based on seasons, if that's even possible in the first place.

In SM/USUM a new Evolution stone was introduced for the regional Ice Types: the Ice Stone.
Before Sw/Sh Eevee needed to be in a specific location in order to evolve into Glaceon. In SwSh this has been replaced by the Ice Stone. If Crabrawler were to be in SwSh it would probably have received the same treatment.
Do you think this is a good change? Do you prefer the location based evolutions for Ice Types such as Glaceon or the new Ice Stones?


I do like the idea of certain Ice types evolving in certain cold areas only. Unfortunately these areas are usually pretty late into the game D=
Which is where I'd personally like the Ice stones to come in. An early game alternative for location based evolutions, rather than a complete replacement. Sadly Ice stones so far aren't accessible all that much earlier either.
So basically I like their addition, but would prefer to have them as an alternative rather than a complete replacement.

For those who watch the Anime: Are there any moments from the Anime that are set in a snowy or icy location that you find particularly memorable?

Can't really speak for the Anime as I don't watch it anymore and the only Ice related thing I can remember is Ash and crew riding on the back of Lapras... but, for the TCG I just googled and saw these:

Spoiler:



I like the pictures on the cards as a whole: nice icy/snowy backgrounds and the mons on them have nice poses =D

Optional:
Battle Tower Challenge #1

Time for a Battle Tower challenge for those who are interested!
You can do this on any of the gen 6, 7 & 8 games that have a variation of the Battle Tower.

This first challenge is kind of to test things out tbh as I'm not sure how high or low to set the goals atm =D (or if people are interested)
I'm pretty sure some Battle Facilities had a choice between level 50 and level 100, but they've been changed bit by bit over the gens so I'm not sure when/what game this was anymore xD

Anyway at your game's Battle Tower facility: pick Single Battle and then Level 50 (if you even have the choice between level 50 and 100).

Rules:
-Mono Ice type team (all your pokemon need to have Ice as one of their typings, this is the Ice Type club after all =3).
-Held items ARE allowed.
-IV/EV Trained mons ARE allowed if you have them.
-No Dynamax/Megas etc. if the Tower allows them (gen 8 tower allows Dynamax for example).
-No legendaries. (I feel like these weren't allowed at Battle Towers, but when I checked in gen 8 Battle Tower they were, so...)

The Gen 8 Tower doesn't have the win streak system the previous Towers had, so I'm kind of forced to alter what I had in mind a little for gen 8.

For Gen 6/7 Battle Tower:
-Start a new streak with your Mono Ice team.
-Get a win streak of at least 30 to be eligible for prizes =D Preferably take a photo of your win streak if possible when finished (not a hard requirement though).

Once you've reached the required numbers you can keep going if you want to see how far you can get =D

For Gen 8:
-Write down your current amount of victories so you don't forget how many you started with (you see this number on the right on the screen where you pick between Single and Double Battle). Preferably take a screenshot or photo too (again, not a hard requirement).
-Get at least 50 wins with your Mono Ice Team to be eligible for prizes (since they don't need to be consecutive in this battle tower, the number is higher). Preferably take another screenshot/photo when done (not a hard requirement).

Whichever gen you're doing this challenge in, be sure to post the Team you used! Be it a screenshot/photo or just text.

As for Prizes, I have a bunch of excess legendaries I can give away. The following legendaries are prizes this time (1 Prize Legendary Per Participant atm):

ORAS (I have Bank so these can go to XY and SM/USUM too):
-Raikou, Entei, Suicune (all x 2)
-Regirock, Regice, Registeel (all x 2)
-Cobalion, Terrakion, Virizion (all x2)

SwSh/Home:
-Type:Null
-Poipole
-Raikou, Entei, Suicune
-Zapdos, Articuno, Moltres
-Cobalion, Terrakion, Virizion
-Ho-oh (x2)
-Heatran

Kinda wish I could hand out only Ice type legendaries, but I just don't have enough of them to do so xD

You have a month to attempt this challenge, so deadline would be 27 November.

What are some of your favorite snowy/icy location(s) in any of the games? (Snowy routes... Icy caverns etc.) Gen. II's Ice Path is the most significant for being where I found my first ever full-odds Shiny (a Golbat), but my favorite visually would probably be the Crown Tundra's Frigid Sea.

The Unova games had seasons. Did you like this mechanic? How do you feel about the Winter season in them? I do enjoy it, especially since it reminds me of one of my favorite GBC games (Oracle of Seasons), but I would've preferred if we had more control over them (besides changing our clock) or if they changed more frequently. I didn't really do much post-game exploring back then so I didn't really get to appreciate this cool feature in full.

Deerling/Sawsbuck had forms based on the current season. Do you like the idea of mons having seasonal forms? Do you think one of their typings should be adjusted along with the season? Or perhaps a different ability or move they can only have/use in a particular season? I would LOVE more Pokémon to have seasonal forms. Honestly wish this was the case for Sandslash (Alolan Sandslash being its winter form). Of course, it'd be nice if there was an item/feature that let us lock forms in case we wanted to use them out of season.

In SM/USUM a new Evolution stone was introduced for the regional Ice Types: the Ice Stone. Before Sw/Sh Eevee needed to be in a specific location in order to evolve into Glaceon. In SwSh this has been replaced by the Ice Stone. If Crabrawler were to be in SwSh it would probably have received the same treatment. Do you think this is a good change? Do you prefer the location based evolutions for Ice Types such as Glaceon or the new Ice Stones? I don't mind the Ice Stone, but I don't like that they broke the consistency with the Eeveelutions by making items that were ineffective on Eevee before work in SWSH. (I also don't get why they didn't change Espeon, Umbreon, and Sylveon to stone evolutions as well while they were at it, as we've got stones that fit all of them.)

For those who watch the Anime: Are there any moments from the Anime that are set in a snowy or icy location that you find particularly memorable? Snow Way Out, especially Ash's Pokémon staying out of their Poké Balls to keep him from freezing and Jessie's "snowgesbord."

For those who collect or play the TCG: Are there any Ice mon cards (I believe they are Water type in the TCG?) that you think have a great snow/ice locale on the background? Or perhaps you just like the picture as a whole? There may be nicer ones out there, but my favorite off the top of my head is probably this Alolan Sandslash (Rising Guardians):
