Characteristics

Defense

Resisting only itself, the Ice type is tied with Normal as the least-resistant type. However, it is immune to freezing, damage from hail, and Sheer Cold (as of Generation VII).

Offense

Ice pairs well with other common attacking types, most notably Ground, which deals at least neutral damage to all types resisting Ice and covers Fire and Steel while Ice covers Flying and Grass. As of Generation VII, Sheer Cold is more accurate when used by an Ice Pokémon.
