Really hoping Mr. Rime is fast and strong. That design is too good not to put to use!

Frosmoth gets quiver dance


Won't mean much of anything if it's base speed is too low.

Do we have stats for mr rhyme yet?
No, I'm hopeful that it will be fast though. Psychic/Ice isn't an ideal combo offensive wise though


Hopefully it gets some bulk or a good ability


It would still be weak to Dark, Ghost, Steel, Rock, Bug, Fire. "Good bulk" might not be good enough to save it.

The Ice type as it is right now doesn't really work at all.

Even with a glass cannon Ice-type, there's still the question of "why use this when I can use a non-Ice-type with Ice-type moves?"

Frosmoth is the only fast Ice type, and I'm so glad. It has 100 base speed, 100 base sp. def. and a whopping 125 base sp. atk. Literally made for Quiver Dancing. Can't wait to use her!

Why do some people say that cross-gen evos don’t count as new Pokemon? Of course they do...

They definitely count as new Pokemon, though it kind of sucks how most of the new Ice types in the past two gens have been regional variants. Gen 7 had more regional variant Ice type lines than native lines!

Our only hope for a fast Ice type outside of Frosmoth now is Darmanitan.
