Long story short. Some guy managed to freeze me 3 times in a row.

Turn 1
Me: Rain dance
Him: Scald

Turn 2
Me: Scald
Him: Ice beam, freezes me.

It was a repeat of turn 2 ( each time freezing me) until my Pokemon fainted. 3 turns of turn 2s.

I just wanna know the odds as Im too curious.

I think you asked wrong, it looks like you're trying to say what is the chance that I stay frozen for three turns
I used scald on my turns to defrostbmyself. So inwas asking wuts the chances of freezing me again and again.
But 1 in 1000. If it froze me again. Dats like me getting 2 shinys.
lol no it isn't. Shinies are rarer.
Oh ok I forgot about that scald effect

Ice Beam has a 10% chance to freeze, so some simple maths will give the answer.
10% = 0.1
0.1 x 0.1 x 0.1 = 0.001
0.001 = 0.1%
So Ice Beam has a 0.1% chance to freeze three times in a row. In other words, it might happen once for every thousand times it is tried.

Ice Beam has a 10% chance of freezing.

Since there are 3 instances, you would just multiply it by itself 3 times.

10% x 10% x 10% = 0.1%

So, a 1 in 1000 chance.
