While we’ve pointed out the best Pokemon in the ice category, winning your battles will still depend on how you train your Pokemon. A well-trained Froslass might even defeat a Kyurem.

Sometimes, even if you max out your Pokemon’s stats, you can still be defeated if you fight against fire, rock, steel, or water type.
