In Pokémon, there are lots of different moves used by different Pokémon. However, there are certain moves we don't normally see being used, heard about, or used in a meaningful manner. On the other hand, there are moves that are famous or used often. In this type of discussion, we shall discuss the ins-and-outs of the move of the topic, and there will be some base questions that would help you start this off. Every week, a different move will be the centre of discussion.
After some voting between choosing a summer move (Fire) or a winter move (Ice), a winter move won out.

Introduced in Generation 5, Frost Breath guarantees a critical hit. This is the first of its kind, as previous moves require chance to get that kind of effect. Frost Breath is also one of the moves that is learned exclusively by Ice-types, giving them something to differentiate from the dominating Water-types. This move is sure to chill anybody, so it's probably cool for those who are experiencing summer right now!Originally Posted by In-game Description (BW)
