Defensively, the Ice type is one of the worst types, only bearing a resistance to one type (itself) and being weak to four types, although two of those types are not very common. This disadvantage in defensive weaknesses is made up somewhat, since the Ice type often finds itself paired up with the [[{{t|Water]]}} type, which effectively neutralises two of its four weaknesses and gives it an offensive advantage against Rock-types.
Offensively, the Ice type is very strong, being one of only two types that is super-effective against Dragon types (indeed, it finds itself more useful for handling Dragon types than Dragon moves since most fully-evolved Dragons have a 4x weakness to Ice moves) and having relatively uncommon types it is not as effective against.
