The '''freeze''' condition (FRZ) (Japanese: '''{{tt|凍|こお}}り''' ''Ice''), also called '''ice''' in the [[Pokémon Stadium series]], causes a {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} 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]] that can cause it, and because of this, it is arguably the most uncommon.
 
* In ''[[SM088|Full Moon and Many Arms!]]'', a {{pkmn2|wild}} {{DL|Light trio (anime)|Necrozma}} was briefly frozen by an Ice Beam from {{an|Lana}}'s [[Poké Ride|Ride]] {{p|Dragonair}} before the former broke out of the ice with brute force.
 
* In ''[[JN011|Best Friend...Worst Nightmare!]]'', [[ChloeProfessor Cerise's Yamper]] was briefly frozen by a {{AP|Gengar}}'s Ice Punch, but was thawed by the heat pads on [[Goh's Scorbunny]]'s feet.
 
* In ''[[JN016|A Chilling Curse!]]'', Ash's Pikachu got his foot frozen from one of Team Rocket's {{p|Dusclops}} using Ice Punch on it. The Gengar from ''Best Friend...Worst Nightmare!'' used {{m|Shadow Ball}} on Pikachu's foot, freeing the [[Pokémon category|Mouse Pokémon]]'s foot from the ice.
