Top 10 Best Ice Type Pokemon

The Top Ten
1 Lapras

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

Lapras has been my favorite since I was a kid. I really like its appearance and stats. High HP, Ice Type, and two 1-hit KO 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.

My surfing buddy. A friendly, reliable, sweet, cunning DRAGON TAMER. Laugh out loud. Its great defenses are a win, and it's always a sweeper in the game. It was my first Pokemon ever that I taught Surf to and will always be my team maker. (P.S.) 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 its power and beauty, Glaceon totally deserves this number 2 spot. Vote for Glaceon!

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

I love birds, especially Articuno, because it looks like an eagle. My friends say I like it only because it's a legendary Pokemon, but that's not true. Even if it weren't legendary, I would love it just as much. The attacks are great, and I think the design 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 determine the true value of a Pokemon. I say this because some consider Kyurem as the best ice-type Pokemon due to higher base stats. But nothing beats the original Kanto Pokemon.

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, its Black Form is the only consistently viable ice type in the OU tier. However, the fact that Kyurem-Black is the only box legendary not to be banned to Ubers should tell you that Ice type is a pretty terrible type to have.

5 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.

6 Weavile

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 (you need to teach it to her) will take on anything and KO it by 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 amounts of damage to anything stupid enough to challenge her.

7 Mamoswine

Imagine embarking on your own Pokemon adventure, traveling on the back of a Mamoswine and carrying several heavy items along the way. You could 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, which is one of an Ice type's few fears, and it can learn Sheer Cold and Earthquake.

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... read more

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 you're ballistic.

It's so beastly it has little ice cannons for hands that shoot ice beams capable of killing a man on contact. It doesn't have the greatest move pool, but it's still great. Plus, it has very usable stats.

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

9 Glalie

I just obtained a Glalie in Pokemon Diamond, and it is amazing! The incredible attack stats balance out my mostly defensive team. Glalie's design is amazing too, 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 due to its average stats and single typing, but it's one of the best Pokemon I've ever used!

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

10 Beartic

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 two evolution lines that get Slush Rush! And Sandslash has two 4x weaknesses. Beartic is too powerful. The only letdown is it cannot be used defensively because it's an 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 and 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.

12 Abomasnow

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

OK, I know it's weak against Fire, but why would someone use it against a 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 the top 3 Ice types after Kyurem and Weavile.

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's 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 than you may think. He fills the role of a sweeper amazingly, so I recommend him.

With Skill Link, Cloyster is a beast. Icicle Spear is guaranteed to hit 5 times! Plus, Shell Smash! This thing swept my team because of Skill Link.

14 Walrein

Kyurem 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 on their team. It's my favorite Pokemon, and I doubt anybody would hate it.

15 Black Kyurem

Why is Black Kyurem this low, with 700 base stats, which is only matched in stat total by 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, then 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.

16 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 they're missing out. Vanillish is catchable from early in the game and 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.

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 overlooked ice types out there. Despite what people may say about its 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.

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 dragons with both fairy and ice types. Not to mention it is beautiful and elegant.

It's beautiful! Plus, it has Fairy type, which is one of my favorite types. This totally needs more votes. Its pre-evolution, Alolan Vulpix, is adorable! And Ninetales is also great. It helps my team a lot.

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, and 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.)

20 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.

21 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.

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 and most adorable Pokemon of all time! It's among my top 10 favorite Pokemon ever!

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 looking for a Galarian Darumaka.

23 Delibird

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

24 Sneasel

Badass looking! The first Ice Pokemon I ever caught, and it helped me beat the gym leader.

I love this Pokemon. It's so cool and mysterious.

I agree. Awesome-looking Pokemon, great candidate for any team.

25 Avalugg Avalugg is an Ice-type Pokémon introduced in the Pokémon franchise's sixth generation. It evolves from Bergmite and is characterized by its massive, glacier-like body. Avalugg's thick ice armor provides it with impressive defensive capabilities. Its design and icy attributes reflect its habitat in... read more

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 so underrated and deserves more love.
