Walrein is a Water and Ice dual-type Pokémon which gives it few weaknesses. Walrein has decent stats and a pretty good special attack. Its defense and special defense can leave it a bit vulnerable to its 2x weaknesses to Fighting, Rock, Grass, and Electric-type moves.

Other strong Ice Type Pokémon in Pokémon Legends: Arceus

There may not be many options for Ice-type Pokémon in Pokémon Legends: Arceus, but that doesn’t mean there are great options. Mamoswine, Glaceon, and the newly debuted Hisuian Avalugg are all good choices for players needing an Ice-type attacker on their team.


Mamoswine’s highlight is its huge attack stat. Coming in at 130, Mamoswine’s attack stat allows it to deal huge amounts of damage to opponents in battle. Mamoswine has Ice and Ground dual-typings, giving it five 2x damage weaknesses but also an immunity to Electric-type moves.

  • Stat Total: 530
    • HP: 110
    • Attack: 130
    • Special Attack: 70

Hisuian Avalugg

Hisuian Avalugg isn’t necessarily a great Pokémon, but it can do in a pinch. It has an incredibly high defense stat and a great attack stat, but that’s about as far as it goes.
