Cryogonal (Japanese: フリージオ Freegeo) is an Ice-type Pokémon introduced in Generation V.

It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon.

Contents

Biology

Cryogonal resembles a shiny, blue hexagonal snowflake. Its facial expression is frozen, which leaves Cryogonal with a still, aggressive-looking face. Two cracks run through its face, the upper opening contains its eyes and the lower serves as a mouth. It has two glowing eyes and its large mouth contains an extendable chain of ice, which is used for hunting.

When its body heat rises it will turn into steam and vanish, but will revert to ice when the body temperature lowers. Cryogonal is born in snow clouds in the form of ice crystals. Cryogonal uses chains made of ice crystals with a temperature of -148° F to capture its prey.

Trivia

Origin

Cryogonal's appearance seems to be based on both snowflakes and ice crystals. The ability to trap prey in ice crystals may be a reference to the hrímþursar, Nordic giants who were made of ice, who also have this ability. Because of its back sprite and ability to learn several light-based moves, it may also be based on a glass mirror.

Name origin

Cryogonal is a combination of the prefix cryo-, from κρύος kruos, Greek for icy cold, and the adjectival form of the suffix -gon, from γωνία gōnia, Greek for angle.

Freegeo may be a combination of freeze or frigid and geometrical.
