In the {{pkmn|anime}}, the frozen status is literally the same as in the {{pkmn|games}}; once a Pokémon is frozen, it can't move and is open to attacks. In some cases, a [[Battle judge|referee]] may call a frozen Pokémon unable to battle.
Freezing is one of the most common status conditions featured in the anime, resulting often when a Pokémon gets hit by an Ice-type attack like {{m|Ice Beam}} or {{m|Blizzard}}.
