The '''freeze''' condition (FRZ) (Japanese: '''{{tt|凍|こお}}り''' ''Ice''), also called '''ice''' in the [[Pokémon Stadium series]], causes a Pokémon to be unable to make a move. It is the only [[status condition]] that does not have a [[move]] that will always cause it or an ability[[Ability]] that can cause it, and because of this, it is arguably the most uncommon.
It is associated with the {{t|Ice}} type, as the majority of moves that can freeze are of this type. {{type|Ice}} Pokémon are usually immune to being frozen, except from {{m|Tri Attack}} in [[Generation II]]. In [[Generation V]], Pokémon glow blue and stop moving when frozen.
