It got frozen by Ice Beam, then it thawed out and used Thunder Wave. I thought only Sacred Fire stuff can do it. Can anybody help?

asked by
you mean it thawed out immediately after it was frozen? like, in the same turn?
im not sure it either thawed out at the end of the turn or at the start of the next turn b4 it used Thunder Wave
It can thaw out at any turn. It doesn't always take forever, like sleep, it can cure itself immediately (if you have a truckload of lucky charms to help you of course).

Frozen:

Effect:
>Freezing causes a Pokémon to be unable to make a move for an indeterminate number of moves. The specifics vary between generations.

Further,

From Generation II onward, freeze has a random, 20% chance to be cured on its own on the frozen Pokémon's turn. Consequently, the frozen Pokémon may thaw out on the turn of freezing.

There it is! A simple matter of probability and chance, and you were caught on the better end of the deal. Good for you, you lucky person! Now go wish for a trip to Disney or a Shiny before your luck runs out!
