Lesson 7 - Water & Ice Pokémon
Water is one of the three Starter Types for Pokémon and has the most Pokémon in it out of any type with 111 total. Water moves are super-effective against Fire, Ground, and Rock Pokémon and are not very effective against Water, Grass, and Dragon Pokémon. Fire, Water, Ice, and Steel Pokémon are all not very effective against Water Pokémon, while Electric and Grass are super-effective against them.
magikarp - gyarados
Magikarp are infamous for being pathetically weak. In battle, the most they are known to do is flop around, making them almost impossible to use. At level 20 though, they evolve into Gyarados. Gyarados are much more powerful and violent than Magikarp, which some scientists attribute to the incredible genetic changes it went under during evolution. Gyarados are known to come out during human violence and will burn cities to the ground. The Lake of Rage is best known for having may Gyarados, and even a few red Gyarados, which involuntarily evolved and gave them their red color. They are one of the few Water Pokémon that can use both Electric and Fire moves.
wailmer - wailord
Wailmer are extremely playful Pokémon that look like whales without tails at the end. They can fill themselves with water and bounce around, even occasionally bouncing outside of water while they do so. They eat over a ton of food a day, which they filter through their baleen plates. Wailord are the largest known Pokémon in the world. Despite being so large, they can breed with much smaller Pokémon like Skitty, Diglett, Seedot, Eevee, and Rattata to name a few because of their status in the Egg Group. This has sparked a lot of groups discussing how this would be possible.
With only 29 Pokémon total, Ice types are quite elusive. There are only five pure Ice Types in their final evolution. Ice moves are super-effective against Grass, Ground, Flying, and Dragon and are not very effective against Fire, Water, Ice, and Steel. Ice Pokémon are not very effective against other Ice Pokémon, but Fire, Fighting, Rock, and Steel Pokémon are all super-effective against Ice.
vanillite - vanillish - vanilluxe
Vanillite represent a swirled scoop of ice cream, and will become extremely embarrassed if they are seen without their snow covering on top. Their breath is as cold as -50 degrees Celcius and they can create ice crystals merely from their breath. Vanillish live in snowy mountains and create shards of ice to ward off enemies. Vanilluxe are easily angered and can expel violent blizzards at their victims.
snorunt - glalie - froslass
Snorunt live in icy caverns where they feed on ice and snow. They roam around in groups of five or six, but they are not easy to capture because they can withstand temperatures of up to -150 degrees Fahrenheit. Female Snorunt can turn into Froslass, which is a hollow Pokémon that can freeze her foes with her -58 degree Fahrenheit breath. It is rumored that she will keep her prey on display frozen where she lives. Glalie tend to be mischievous and can block paths so that travelers are led into mountain top caves or dwellings. They are actually very loyal Pokémon and are often misjudged for their unfriendly appearance and physical disposition. While Glalie are often considered to be the male version of Froslass, there are female Glalie. They are very similar to Snorunt, just stronger, and their ice moves can literally freeze their prey in their tracks.
