Yes/No: change Ice-type to Cold-type


The biggest criticism of Ice-type is that its treated like frozen water, so it is weak to anything that can melt or break it, which is a lot of common attacks.

Its really the opposite of fire, the absence of heat. So if it were changed to the Cold-type, then it would still modified to being...

Strong: Dragon, Grass, Ground, Flying
Resist: Cold
Immune: -
Weak: Fire and ?

No. We have Water and Fire. If they were Wet and Hot (giggity), Water wouldn't be weak to Electricity, and Fire wouldn't be weak to Rock and Ground

Water makes things wet. Heat and subsequently combustion are caused by friction.

The lack of movement in molecules makes things cold, and Ice is just the result of water being cold.

Of course! Because when I see a giant f***ing ice table, or a ghostly snow maiden, or a big wooly mammoth with tusks of ice, all I think is "Damn, they must be cold."
One more time, we're gonna celebrate! Ah yeah, all right, don't stop the dancing!

We should also change Grass type to Plants type and Bug type to Insect type. And Dragon type to "Most of them are dragons but some are also dinosaurs, wyverns or just some big beasts"

I agree about changing Grass to Plant.

Arachnids are not insects but they are Bugs.

Dragons have many appearances in myth and legend, so it makes sense in that regard. Also wyverns and wyrms are sub categories of dragons.
