Denny Sinnoh's "Akihabara Starlight"

Cyogonal is using what is known in Pokémon battling as a “Special Move”.

Cryogonal (in Japanese: フリージオ  “Freegeo”) was introduced in 2011 in Pokémon Black and White. Cryogonal is an ICE-type Pokémon.


(Thank you again Bulbapedia)

Cryogonal is basically a big ice crystal or snowflake. The English The name is a combination of “cryo” meaning ice, and hexagon, as many snow flakes are six sided. It does not evolve from any other form. It does not have a Mega-Evolution form. Cyrogonal has neither a male or female form.

Clearly, Cyogonal is a “gender-less” Pokémon.

Quoted directly from BulbapediaCryogonal resembles a shiny, blue hexagonal snowflake. Its facial expression is frozen, which leaves Cryogonal with a still, aggressive-looking face. Two cracks run through its face, the upper opening contains its eyes and the lower serves as a mouth. It has two glowing eyes and its large mouth contains an extendable chain of ice, which is used for hunting. When its body heat rises it will turn into steam and vanish, but will revert to ice when the body temperature lowers. Cryogonal is born in snow clouds.

My favorite name for Cryogonal is “Bergeron” after “Bergeron’s concept” in meteorology. Did you know that most rain actually starts out as snow? Even a warm summer raindrop starts out as an ice-cystal in the top, supercooled layer of rainclouds. The ice-cystal attracts moisture from the supercooled cloud droplets – much as the way Cryogonal may use the Pokémon move “Attract”.


Oddly, Cryogonal may use Attract even though it is GENDER-LESS! If defense is your strategy, Cryogonal may also use the move “Protect“.

This was the closest free image I could find for Cryogonal using “Protect”.

Other names I have used are: “Whiteout” after the term for Blizzard conditions, “Crystal Beth” after the drug popular with my redneck relatives, “White X-Mas” and “Let-It-Snow” after holiday songs, “Schmidlin” after the famous snow climatologist, and “Eat-My-Sleet” because I thought it would be a funny name to see when the Pokémon switches in to a trainer battle.

I also have Cryogonals named “Heart-of-Ice”, “Wind Rime” (after rime ice, and it sounds like wind chime, which Cryogonal somewhat resembles), “Six Points” like the hexagon or when you are scoring a touchdown, “Robert Frost” for the poet you studied in high school, and “Flakes” as in a crazy person.

You may think of other snow/ice themed names. Lady cosplayers may like the “Snow Queen” or “Ice Princess” concept.

I suppose that many players may make some type of “Frozen” movie reference. The Snowman song is linked here.


“Bergeron: Let it SNOW!”

What is the name of your powerful Ice Crystal? Please comment!

  1. Cryogonal can use attract because it looks so n-ice.
