This snowflake looks pissed. KeepCryogonal away from physical attackers at all costs, because ofits absolutely dismaldefense stat. And don't even bother with trying to compensate with EVs, because it's not worth it.Cryogonal makes up for it with an impressive special defense though, which is the highest of any non-legendary Ice-type. LikeVanilluxe, your best STAB option is easily Ice Beam, although you could go for Blizzard if you're willing to take a risk.

Depending on the rest of your team, Rapid Spin is also a good option forCryogonal because its Levitate ability makes it immune to Spikes, so you can spin them away without taking damage, but this is only really useful if you're going to be battling competitively. Among the pure Ice-types of Black and White, theVanillite family is definitely a more interesting option.

Life is nature's way of keeping meat fresh.
