Ice (type)

Ice type Pokémon are now the rarest of all types: there are just 33 in total (ignoring Megas/Formes). They are ranked quite well defensively in terms of stats, although multiple type weaknesses let them down. Some are based on typical Arctic creatures like seals or yaks, while others are more mythical.
