Prevention and curing
Being frozen can be cured with the use of an {{DL|Status condition healing item|Ice Heal}} or an [[Aspear Berry]] ({{DL|Berry (Generation II)|Burnt Berry}} in [[Generation II]], [[Pumkin Berry]] in [[Generation III]]). In addition, like all other major [[status condition]]s, it can be cured by the items {{DL|Status condition healing item|Full Heal}}, {{DL|Status condition healing item|Lava Cookie}}, {{DL|Potion|Full Restore}}, {{DL|Status condition healing item|Old Gateau}}, {{DL|Herbal medicine|Heal Powder}}, [[Lum Berry]], {{DL|Status condition healing item|Casteliacone}}, and [[Sacred Ash]]. {{m|Heal Bell}} and {{m|Aromatherapy}} also removes it from all Pokémon in the party. A Pokémon with {{a|Natural Cure}} will be cured upon switching out, one with the {{a|Hydration}} Ability will be cured while it is {{weather|raining}}, and one with {{a|Shed Skin}} has a 30% chance of being cured every turn.

However, from [[Generation V]] onward, Pokémon with the Ability {{a|Flash Fire}} will not be thawed out by any Fire-type moves in Generation V, since they will not be damaged by them (prior to Generation V, Flash Fire cannot be activated while the Pokémon is frozen). In Generation VI, if a frozen Pokémon is hit by {{m|Scald}} and takes damage, it will thawbe itsimmediately targetthawed; ifsince itPokémon hitswith the Ability {{a|Water Absorb}} or {{a|Storm Drain}} do not take damage from Scald, they cannot be thawed by it.
 
A frozen Pokémon can still use the moves {{m|Flame Wheel}}, {{m|Sacred Fire}}, {{m|Flare Blitz}}, {{m|Fusion Flare}}, {{m|Scald}}, and {{m|Steam Eruption}} while frozen; these moves will thaw the user, then execute normally (the user is thawed regardless of if the move is used successfully). Pokémon with the {{a|Magma Armor}} Ability cannot be frozen. {{type|Ice}} Pokémon cannot be frozen except by {{m|Tri Attack}} in Generation II.
