Top 10 Best Ice Type Pokemon

The Top Ten
1 Lapras

One of the best designed pokemon In my opinion of all time especially considering that its kind of one of the most loved pokemon out there.

How is Glaceon number 1 instead of Lapras? Lapras is based off the Loch Ness monster and has a great design. It's Water/Ice typing is awesome and it is so love able. Seriously though, Lapras outclasses Glaceon in every aspect. Why is Lapras not in 1st?

Lapras was my favorite since I was a kid. I really likes its appearance and stats. High HP, Ice Type and two 1 hit K. O moves - Sheer Cold and Perish Song. It is Very Cute yet a Formidable Pokemon in battles. A Pokemon which is worth keeping in your team for.

My surfing buddy. A friendly reliable sweet cunning DRAGON TAMER. Laugh out loud. It's great defenses is a win and its always a sweeper in the game. It was my first pokemon ever that I taught surf to and will always be my team maker. (Ps) mine is purple

2 Glaceon Glaceon, known in Japan as Glacia, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Yay! I absolutely love Glaceon! It's strong, easy to get and beautiful! In Pokémon Moon, I evolved my level 36 Eevee into a Glaceon and she kind of stole my heart a little. Because I chose Popplio, fighting grass types was tricky for me. But when I got her, all grass-types were a breeze to fight. They would all be knocked out in only one or two hits. She really helped my team! Also, Glaceon are beautiful. They have this very mythical look. Because of it's power and beauty, Glaceon totally deserves this number #2 spot. Vote for Glaceon!

I've loved Pokemon for 3 years now and glaceon has always been my favourite. She is beautiful, strong and graceful. Seriously what more could you want from an ice type! How is lapras first, it's a big blue blob of lumpy old turtle with a gray slab on it's back. I mean is a great Pokemon and ice type, but face it, glaceon is just better. Glaceon is the best and should be first not 2nd.

One time in Pokemon white 2, I was training an eevee at night to become an umbreon, I forgot about the fact that I was in the blizzard near the ice stone so when it evolved, it was a glaceon, at first I was disappointed but in the elite 4 it was my strongest Pokemon, never had I used a revive on it... it's strong and cute, and my eevee was a female...

Glaceon has been my favorite Pokemon for so long now, and it feels great it's getting some love. I use my Glaceon in battle, and it goes weeks without losing! She's just so powerful! With a wide range for a mono Ice type, good defenses, and a KILLER Special Attack, Glaceon is one of the most underrated Pokemon there is!

3 Articuno Articuno, known in Japan as Freezer, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

MY Favourite Gen 1 Legendary pokemon even more than Mew. Also Articuno is the reason I chose to join Team Mystic on Pokemon Go. Because I like Articuno more!

I love love LOVE birds, and especially Articuno, for it looks like an eagle. My friends say I like it only because it's a legendary Pokemon, but that's not true. If it wasn't a legendary I would love it just as much. The attacks are great, and the design, I think, is even better. Moltres looks like a stork and Zapdos looks like a songbird with zig-zag wings. To end it all, Articuno is my favorite ice Pokemon.

I'm sorry but when it comes to ice-type pokemon, nothing beats Articuno. Base stats aren't everything. You also need to consider other factors such as type, appearance, history, strengths, weaknesses etc. to consider the true value of pokemon. I say this because some consider Kyurem as the best ice-type pokemon due to higher base stats. Nothing beats the original kanto pokemon.

Why is Articuno 3rd? It should 1ST! It is the most powerful of the legendary birds and the only Pokemon in the entire game that can legitimately learn Mind Reader + Sheer Cold! And Sheer Cold is the only OHKO move in the game that can't be resisted! It also has decent type resistances for an Ice-Type and can even take down Mewtwo with Signal Beam in Pokemon Showdown!

4 Kyurem Kyurem, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Kyurem didn't just break the record but also the ICE! It has the powers of BOTH Reshiram and Zekrom. Lapras has a stat total of 535, Glaceon: 525, Froslass: 480, Articuno: 580 and mamoswine: 530, nothing close to Kyurem's 660 stat total. In a battle with all five of them, Kyurem could turn white and freeze them (ALL of them) into an ice statue so Kyurem is the winner. In fact Kyurem is the ONLY one of the strongest legendary Pokemon on the list.

While I like Lapras more when it comes to design, Kyurem is clearly stronger. Specifically, its white form is the only ice type strong enough to be banned to the Ubers tier (aside from Arceus-Ice). Additionally, it's black form is the only consistently viable ice type in the OU tier. However, the fact that Kyurem-Black is the only box legendary to not be banned to Ubers should tell you that Ice type is a pretty terrible type to have.

Kyurem is an Ice Dragon. Come on ice and dragon, it just makes that ice a normal attack on a dragon, that's cool and it's the only Dragon and Ice type which is cool and it's also very powerful I mean look at it's stats
And abilities and it has two mega evolutions which are just too awesome.

I don't even know where to start with kyurem. Its dragon AND ice, the ice takig away ice being good. Kyurem is even better when you combine it with either reshiram or zekrom. I don't know about reshiram because I have alpha sapphire, but it's really good!

5 Weavile

I think Weavile needs to be a bit higher. Sure Glaceon is a bit bulky and all but dude just outpaces every pokemon and sweeps using its STAB attacks. Ice punch, swords dance, and night slash is all you need for a powerful glass cannon.

Weavile has good Speed and Attack and a decent move-pool to compliment it, such as a STAB Icicle Crash, though the accuracy hurts a little, and Knock Off, as well as some coverage through Low Kick / Poison Jab or priority in Ice Shard. Slap on a Life Orb and it's an amazing revenge killer, that being said, with a 4x weakness to fighting as well as a weakness to Stealth Rock it doesn't do much more than that. Both these weaknesses are common among ice-types though.

Come on, guys! Weavile with Ice Punch, Night Slash, Slash, and Swords Dance (need to teach it to her) will take on anything and KO it using the high speed to attack first.
Unlike other ice and dark types, Weavile has a higher attack. So giving her attack based moves and teaching her Swords Dance, she'll do insane am8unts 8f damage to anything stupid enough to challenge her.

I can't believe how under appreciated weavile is. With 125 attack and speed and an unexpecting move pool. Very few things can switch in on weavile and not be severely damaged or most likely ko'd. I keep one on nearly every competitive team I have. It always sweeps through the elite 4 as well. Weavile deserves to be in the top 5 at least. Speaking he is amount dark types.

6 Froslass Froslass, known in Japan as Yukimenoko, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Why isn't Froslass number one?
Not only can it set up Spikes (egg move) it can also be a really good setup or suicide lead. It gets access to Destiny Bond, Will-O-Wisp, and Confuse Ray. If you have some HP left you could also teach it Substitute and troll away! It's incredibly fast and has 3 resistances and 2 immunities, pretty good for ice types. Really cool typing too. I have a Shiny Froslass and it WRECKS everything! Best Ice Type.

First of all it evolves from snorunt, which Is my favorite Pokemon of all time. Plus it has great speed, and is the only ghost type that can learn spikes (making it immune to rapid spin) and double team makes it hard to take down.

Froslass is awesome! Great learn set, a BoltBeam (Thunderbolt and Ice Beam) user AND a ghost type! The type combination is awesome and Shadow Ball is great! It sweeps at least one member of every E4 it's in (based on their specialized type).

Cursed Body+Focus Sash can disable enemies super effective moves, while you set up Spikes and then, next turn, you can just use Destiny Bond and take down one of your opponents Pokemon while getting spikes down. Probably the best Spikes user in UU.

7 Mamoswine

Imagine doing your own pokemon adventure traveling on the back of the mamoswine and carrying several heavy things on the way. You can even feel warm on the hottest day because of its ice type.

Well Walrein may be a big blue walrus but this... This is a gigantic dirt, ice pig with even bigger and sharper tusks. Not to mention... (oh wait I already did) it's a gigantic dirt ice pig!

It's great. It's resistant to fire of which is an ice type's few fears and it can learn sheer cold and earthquake.

Come on! Mamoswine not number 1?!?!? Mamoswine in pokemon showdown! Just use earthquake, blizzard, hidden power pyshic and stone edge!
Remember to give it iron ball, it allows ground moves to hit flying

8 Regice Regice is a legendary Pokemon and part of the Regi trio. According to scientific research its body is made entirely of Antarctic ice during an ice age. It is said to always control frigid air of minus 328 degrees F. Regice was first introduced in Generation III. Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, FireRed, and LeafGreen.

Regice is the best ice type, my signature Pokemon, and the best ice type!
In fact, I own a team of ice-types. I am the official ice-type master of ALL of Pokémon. Read this and read it well. If you think you have a team of ice types that can beat mine, then your ballistic.

It's so beast it has little ice cannons for hands
That shoot ice beams that could kill a man on contact
It doesn't have the greatest move pool but it's still great
But it has very useable stats.

Explosion is the first move he learns so obviously, he is #1!

Regice can freeze anything in its path!

9 Glalie

I just obtained a Glalie in Pokemon Diamond and it is amazing! The incredible attack stats balance out my mostly Defense team. Glalie's design is amazing to and it is a pure Ice-type. That makes it incredibly rare. Vote for Glalie

One of my favorites! It's often regarded as pretty weak for its average stats and single typing, but it's one of the best Pokemon I've ever used!

Defiantly one of the best ice types. It was the first ice type that Ash managed to obtain and has always been on of my favourite Pokemon.

For the generation 3 I think it is the best, it helped me through countless battles and I would love to make it an 100 Beatstick again!

10 Beartic

It's not your average Bear and that's whats I liek about it plus it's a Polar Bear reference which is awesome as I'm Canadian! But also Beatric has been useful for me when I used it especially in pokemon Black

He looks so menacing! Not to mention his attack stat is very high and it's about time Nintendo had a polar bear.

Two words Slush Rush beartic is one of only 2 evolution lines that gets slush rush! And sandslash has 2 4X weaknesses Beartic is too powerful the only let down is it cannot be used defensively becuase it's ice typing

Cubchoo, sit your 3D model booty down. Get to level 37, then we'll talk.

The Contenders
11 Aurorus Aurorus, known in Japan as Amaruruga, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Yes I love aurorus because first of all she is a prehistoric pokemon her colors are very colorful are amazingly beautiful.

This is a pretty good Pokemon and the best part is: It's from Kalos! That was where I was from when I went to Alola.

This is my favorite Pokemon of all time. I wipe out fighting type Pokemon with it.

I really want to know how to get her in pokemon sun.

12 Abomasnow

I really liek its reference and design and the ice grass typing is very unique too I dunno I just like this pokemon in many ways.

Abomasnow is one of the best sweepers I've ever seen! He diserves way more credit! I had one on my team in X&Y and it crushed everything. It may have a four times weakness to fire, but it makes up four that with a four times effectiveness to ground! And don't even get me started on it's mega! Abomasnow is amazing and will always be my fave ice type Pokemon(lapras and weavile are good to).

OK I know its weak against fire, but why will someone use it against fire type? with its snow warning it can sweep opponents with blizzard.Plus it has wood hammer attack so in my opinion it is amongst top 3 ice types after kyurem and weavile.

Ice and grass type! 4x weak to fire but starts a hail storm to make blizzard 100% accurate. Best ice type ever!

13 Cloyster

I love running shell smash focus sash set, with explosion or rock blast. He's a really fun Pokemon to use, and he is very unpredictable if he is physical or special. He also made it onto my competitive team, where he has perfect synergy with my rapid spinner. Cloyster only downsides are multi-hits hitting him, priority moves, and he can't take a special hit without using focus sash. The downsides are smaller then you may seem. He fills the role of a sweeper amazingly, so I recommend him.

With skill link, cloyster is beast. Icicle spear is guaranteed to hit 5 times! Plus, shell smash! This thing sweeper my team because of skill link,

Cloyster was one of my favorites back in Gen 1, and with Shell Smash and Skill Link, it's only gotten better since.

Skill Link, max speed and attack, Ice spear and Rock blast? With shell smash! Your opponent wont see it coming. They're going' down

14 Walrein

Kyrurem is great as a legendary and whatever, but walrein is the best wall I ever know of. It's even in the name. Just give it stockpile, ice beam, rest and snore and it is basically invincible, even to strong fighting types like lucario. It is so underrated, and few people know of it.

I don't know if this is a legendary, or if they count, but the legendary ice Pokemon should be the first ones because they are undoubtedly the best.

Walrein is the big blue walrus everyone needs in their team. It's my favorite pokemon and I doubt anybody would hate on it.

Walrien is blue walrus that is SUPER DESTRUCTIVE and is better than some Pokemon on this list like mamoswine. I have him in omega ruby and really helps me out because he is a good sweeper against fire and dragon

15 Vanillish

Vanillish is my favorite Pokemon, and I'm not joking. The losers who make fun of the design can resort to their Charizard, and their missing out. Vanillish is catchable from early in the game, is tied with Lapras for the best non legendary ice type stat-wise. He SHOULD have gotten a Mega Evolution...

Best Unova Ice Type. Now, I understand people hate it because of the design, but it is better than the living pile of goo that Muk is or the extremely generic Pidgey, Rattata, Lillipup, Sentret, Seel, and others.

Best in Unova. The design is cute (opinion of course) nice speed, well rounded, Nice movepool. You gotta kill those killer Dragon types right?

16 Black Kyurem

What is black kyurem this low, with 700 base stats, which the only ice type matched in stat total is white kyurem, but black looks way cooler so it should be higher. Speaking of the order, the top 3 should be black kyurem, white kyurem, the normal kyurem.

Dude, are you joking? Even if he is the only demoted Uber tier Pokemon, he can still kick butt in OU with his great stats and mixed attacking capabilities.

17 Vanilluxe Vanilluxe is an Ice-type Pokémon introduced in Generation V. It evolves from Vanillish. It is the final form of Vanillite. It is known as the Snowstorm Pokémon.

Probably one of the most over looked ice types out there. Despite what people may say about it's design, Vanilluxe is one cool customer. Sporting a very respectable base 110 special attack Vanilluxe can be deceptively powerful. Access to speed boosts in the forms of automize and weak armor can raise Vanilluxe's speed to amazing levels. Ice beam hits any Pokemon foolish enough to stay in very hard. Flash cannon provides some nice coverage against fairies and opposing ice types. Don't underestimate Vanilluxe. When left unchecked Vanilluxe can run away with a match and punch large holes in the opponent's defense.

So, I know people are hating on Vanilluxe because of design, but there are worse designs out there, like geodude. I know it has a limited move pool, but with acid armor, leftovers, and ice body, this ice cream cone can kick some dragon type butt!

A boss ice type. It has awesome attack plus it learns blizzard and sheer cold by level up. It also has hail and ice body for a great alternative to leftovers. It's got an adorable design that does not suck. Behind those cute faces is a frozen nightmare for dragon trainers. #icebeam!

Why do people hate it so much? Because its ice cream? Statistically its tied with LAPRAS for strongest non legendary ice type and it looks so cute and happy:) Also its suggested that in the pokemon world ice cream is based off Vanilluxe not the other way around.

18 Alolan Ninetales

By far one of the best ice types in the game. Whenever I am making a team for a battle and I end up needing an ice type, it seems like I can never go wrong with choosing Alolan ninetales for that spot. Being able to set up hail and then use perfect accuracy blizzard along with aurora veil is just amazing!

This pokemon is amazing - it is good in double battles with water types and is effective against dragon with both fairy and ice. Not to mention it is beautiful and elegant

It's beautiful! Plus, it has fairy type, which is one of my fairy types. This TOOTALLY needs more votes. It's pre evolution, Alolan Vulpix is ADORABLE! And Ninetales is also great. It helps my team a lot.

I love alolan ninetales. dazzling gleam is really good in double battles and is really good with a water starter since it is good against ice

19 Dewgong Dewgong, known in Japan as Jugon, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Dewgong is SO GOOD! It's so cute, it's my favorite color of blue, it's an ice-water type, which combines two of my favorite types, it has sick moves, and when I'm reading the comments below, Dewgong could probably beat the Elite Four. It has Ice Beam, Aurora Beam, Hail, and a bunch of other moves that are really cool, too! And just imagine if it got a mega evolution! That would look so sick! And a vmax would be really cool too! This is by far my favorite pokemon ever and I don't even need it in a pokemon game to convince me about that. (I've never played a pokemon game, actually... But I have seen that it's pretty good. Thanks, Youtube.)

Dewgong should be number one! I mean, actually, Glaceon and Dewgong should be number one. Dewgong is the second cutest Pokémon in the world, right after Eevee and Growlithe. It's just a white fur ball, but it defeated Mewtwo in "Mewtwo Strikes Back!" Whoo hoo! Well, actually, any Pokémon could defeat Mewtwo in one shot. When I was playing Pokémon with my sister, my Magikarp just killed her Mega Mewtwo in one shot! I was like, "Yay! Look how bad it is!" and she was like, "Man, this is awful."

But a Dewgong, on the other hand, even defeated a Mewtwo in the anime and in the trading cards! How cool is that? Its Aurora Beam could defeat almost everybody (except for Arcanine, Reshiram, Chansey, or Blissey). So Dewgong is just an unbeatable Pokémon!

I just absolutely love Dewgong! So cute and powerful with the right move set.

I am undefeated with my dewgong! Sadly underrated, esp. For generations 2/3.

20 Spheal

Do I really need to explain? Fine. He. Is. The. CUTEST! One of my friends actually used his Master Ball to catch one of these because he was having a bad time (wink wink).

It's a cute, blue, seal! I love seals! All you need for a powerful team is cute Pokemon, because the other Pokemon will be knocked out by their pure cuteness!

Hands down Spheal is the Cutest & most adorable pokemon of all time! It's among my top 10 fave pokemon ever!

Spheal is really cute and awesome too. I've got one on my ice type team and its boss!

21 Snorunt

Look at snorunt and love him. It's impossible to do otherwise. My favorite Pokemon ever.

For the win snorunt can destroy mewtwo and every legendary.

Snorunt is a G. You can't not like snorunt

22 Galarian Darmanitan

I love these because they look so funny and they also look like they have an afro... and yes I did spend like an hour on looking for a Galarian Darumaka.

23 Sneasel

Badass looking! First ice pokemon I ever caught, and helped me beat gym leader.

I love this pokemon, it's so cool and mysterious.

Cool and powerful

This dude is lit

24 Delibird

It has a fairly decent move set with TMs, and I love the descriptions of it and how it will save people lost on mountains with food in its tail. Overall I just really like Delibird.

How is Delibird on this list!? It can't learn any attack moves, whoever thinks pokemon is good, is stupid.

25 Avalugg

Avalugg is a gigantic iceberg tank pokemon. How on earth is he at 38th?
With super great defense, and very good special defense, this pokemon is a horror for people with ground/rock pokemon who think that they can just one shot an ice pokemon and it be over with. It's more like a 25 shot kill with earthquake.

Avalugg is only good if you know how to use him. My Avalugg has a sassy nature, knows Avalanche, Earthquake, Curse and recover, while holding leftovers and it's a BEAST, I don't even remember the last time it fainted. If you ask me Avalugg is sooo Underrated and deserves more love

If you ever need a bulky ice type, this is your choice. Great defense, great attack, and decent enough hp. Its only downside is that it has awful speed. However, if it has ice body, is holding leftovers and hail is up, it's basically another stallrein.

As far as ice types go, the big walking glacier should be number 1 right?
