Snorunt, the Snow Hat Pokémon. Snorunt primarially inhabits very snowy regions. It has long been said that any home visited by a Snorunt will be blessed with good fortune.
– Ash’s Pokedex


Despite it being introduced in 3rd Gen, and having a Pokedex number of 361, Snorunt is the first pure Ice type in the National Pokedex. Yes, there were no pure Ice types in gen 1 or 2.

I’m quite familiar with Snorunt, because I bred a lot of them for 2 Froslass on Candice’s team. I’m not sure whether to classify it as cute or weird, but it’s rather unique-looking. As an Ice type, its colours certainly don’t indicate it; it looks more like a Dark type, though its shiny sprite does have ice blue on it.

Its stats are all even, with 50 base stat in every field, so you can go either way; it learns both physical and special attacks. Ice isn’t a very good type defensively though.

Snorunt has a branched evolution: Glalie, or Froslass if female and used a Dawn Stone. I like Froslass, but Glalie is rather creepy and weird-looking, and also has even stats, which is hard to work with.
