Default Favourite Non-Legendary Unovian Ice Type?

(This poll was made because Simmi said his avatar was cuter than mine. :[)

Ice is probably my favourite type. Slaying dragons with spears forged from icicles? Nothing can compare. Generation Five introduced plenty a few Ice Types into the fray, and I want to know which one of the pure 5th Gen Ice types you think is best.


Name: Vanillite | Vanillish | Vanilluxe |
Species: Fresh Snow | Icy Snow | Snowstorm |
Abilities: Ice Body | Weak Armor (Hidden) |
Unova Pokedex #: 88 | 89 | 90 |
National Pokedex #: 582 | 583 | 584 |
Highest evolved form's base stats:
  • HP: 71 [346 Max.]
  • Attack: 95 [317 Max.]
  • Defense: 85 [295 Max.]
  • Special. Attack: 110 [350 Max.]
  • Special. Defense: 95 [317 Max.]
  • Speed: 79 [282 Max.]
  • Total: 535 [14th Highest Base Stat Total of all Pokemon!]

Positives:
  • The line has a decent ability when used in conjunction with Abomasnow.
  • The line actually has very decent stats. Give them a new typing and a better moveset, and you have an OU contender right there.
  • They're. Freaking. Adorable. :3
  • Have you seen their German and French names? Vanillite is known as Sorbébé in French. I find that incredibly cute. Vanilluxe is known as Gelatwino (ice cream and twin) in German and Vanillish is known as Gelatroppo, which literally means 'too much ice cream'. Their names are hilarious!

Negatives:
  • The line don pretty decent defensive stats...but they have an awful defensive typing to really pull anything 'wallish' off.
  • They have an incredibly shallow movepool.
  • They are deemed as 'unoriginal' by many fans.

My Opinion?
Look at my avatar. My opinion? I love the Vanillite line. Easily my favourite Pokemon of the 5th Gen.

------------------------------


Name: Cubchoo | Beartic |
Species: Chill | Freezing |
Abilities: Snow Cloak | Rattled [as Cubchoo] / Swift Swim [as Beartic] (Hidden) |
Unova Pokedex #: 119 | 120 |
National Pokedex #: 613 | 614 |
Highest evolved form's base stats:
  • HP: 95 [394 Max.]
  • Attack: 110 [350 Max.]
  • Defense: 80 [284 Max.]
  • Special. Attack: 70 [262 Max.]
  • Special. Defense: 80 [284 Max.]
  • Speed: 50 [218 Max.]
  • Total: 485

Positives:
  • I'll admit, Cubchoo is adorable.
  • Again, decent abilities when used in conjunction with Rain and Hail abusers, although Rain is preferred to boost Beartic's pitiful speed.
  • Has a very diverse movepool.

Negatives:
  • Again, pitiful Speed ruins its chances of ever being a top tier threat. Low speed means less sweeping oppurtunities, and if it can't sweep its best bet is walling....which it doesn't have the stats to do. Of course, this can be solved with Swift Swim.

My Opinion:
I really like Cubchoo. I started noticing how much I liked it after the Japanese event for it came out. But Beartic? Eh, it's not really grown on me as such, and I don't think it will.

------------------------------


Name: Cryogonal
Species: Crystallizing |
Abilities: Levitate |
Unova Pokedex #: 121 |
National Pokedex #: 615 |
Base stats:
  • HP: 70 [344 Max.]
  • Attack: 50 [218 Max.]
  • Defense: 30 [174 Max.]
  • Special. Attack: 95 [317 Max.]
  • Special. Defense: 135 [405 Max.]
  • Speed: 105 [339 Max.]
  • Total: 485

Positives:
  • Cryogonal has the highest Special Defense of all non-legendary Ice type Pokemon.
  • Cryogonal definately has the best movepool by far. And it certainly has the stats to use them well.
  • It looks like a happy dude with a moustache. Instant 'cool' points, if you'll pardon the pun.

Negatives:
  • Despite its pretty decent stats, it is deemed an inferior Blissey. Its Ice typing also ruins whatever chance it had at defending, too.

My opinion:
Cryogonal definately makes 2nd place for me here. I loved how it looks, its just one of those 'quirky' Pokemon, and those are generally the kind of Pokemon I like. Hint: Ditto. And then whilst writing all this up, I saw its movepool. Sharpen, Slash, Night Slash, Acrobatics, Recover and Acid Armor? Among the 'strange' move choices for Cryogonal, it still learns the basic Ice Beam and even Solarbeam (my favourite move whilst typing I almost typed 'food'. Bloody Vanillite.) naturally. Yeah, I'm definitely using Cryogonal sometime.

------------------------------

Feel free to vote on your favourite and your reasons why. :]

For design purposes, Vanillite/Vanillish/Vanilluxe. They suffer from a poor movepool, though.

I know the ice cream trio will probably get the most votes, but I'm voting for Chubchoo and Beartic.

One, Vanilluxe is tied with Lapras for the highest base stat total of all non-legendary ice-type Pokémon, and I'm not happy about that. Lapras is freaking amazing, and only IT has the right to such a title!

Two, ice cream? I now realize that if it really is true that many of the Unovian (I love the adjective; and the rumor is true) Pokémon are based off of animals at the zoo, then they must have thought out of the box and thought about the food and even the garbage (Garbodor) there, too.

I'm not even going to comment on Cryogonal. I refuse to acknowledge it's existence; it's horrible. And my favorite type is the ice type, so that really says a lot.

Oh, it's going to be delicious. I'm referring to the visuals you'll get when Vanilluxe uses Flash Cannon on Beartic.

Aside from the fact that it's a freaking ICE CREAM CONE, Vanniluxe is a total bro.

I think Vanillite is completely adorable but I really don't like its evos at all :( Those German/French names are waaaay better than the English ones xD

Cubchoo is cute, but again, don't like its evo and that icicle/snot thing on its nose is gross.

Crygonal is creepy. :(

Guess I'll have to vote for the Vanillite line xD

The Vanillite line I think is the best because they are ice cream Pokemon, how cool is that?
