I understand that. BUt, thanks to the lack of resistances great ice types have to suffer a lot competitive. Take Kyurem for example. It is stuck in BL due to being ice.
So yeah, offensively they are amazing...defensively they suck. I wish that they'd give the ice types resistances to water, fairy and maybe ground.
I added you back! And sure, if you see me online (my trainer and 3DS name are both Carly) feel free to challenge me to a battle. If I decline it means I don't have my proper team with me atm, is all, but sure!!
Interesting teams you've got there. Though you're probably aware of this by now, but just an FYI, weather-based Abilities have been nerfed: they only last 5 turns now. But you've probably already found a way around that, so I guess that's water under the bridge.
Not a clue. I haven't gotten that far, to be honest, since I've spent a lot of time exploring/catching/item hunting in the main game, so I can't help you there.
