Freezing causes a Pokémon to be unable to make a move for an indeterminate number of moves. The specifics vary between generations.
Same as Generation II, but Pokémon can attack on the turn that they defrost. Animation also shows up on every turn Pokémon is frozen (in contrast to previous generations, where animation showed up only when freeze was inflicted).
Freezing also disables the ability {{a|Flash Fire}}.
Freezing also disables the ability {{a|Flash Fire}}
In addition, a frozen [[Form differences#Shaymin|Sky Forme]] {{p|Shaymin}} will revert to its Land Forme.
A frozen Pokémon can still use the moves {{m|Flame Wheel}}, {{m|Sacred Fire}}, {{m|Flare Blitz}}, {{m|Fusion Flare}} and {{m|Scald}} while frozen; these moves will thaw the user, thaw the opponent if possible, and deal damage to the opponent. {{type2|Ice}} Pokémon and those with the {{a|Magma Armor}} ability are completely immune to being frozen by Ice-type moves; however, Ice-type Pokémon can be frozen by {{m|Tri Attack}}.
