Yes! Alonan Ninetales is the only Ice and Fairy Pokémon. It evolves from Alonan Vulpix, a fire-type Pokémon, due to exposure to Ice Stone.
I am among many Pokémon fans in utter awe of Alonan Ninetales. I fell in love with Alonan Ninetales not just because of its radiance but also because it’s the only one of its kind.
Its Ice and Fairy combination made me seek other Pokémon that could match its abilities. I had to figure out the ice-type Pokémon that could learn Fairy moves and vice versa 🔎.
So, let’s talk about Ice and Fairy Pokémon and how we can manipulate their abilities to imitate Alonan Ninetales.
Are there fairy Pokémon that can learn ice-type moves?
Yes, there are. Alonan Ninetales is the first obvious answer, but it is already a Fairy and Ice Pokémon. It can learn Aurora Veil, Blizzard, and even Ice Beam.
Fairy-type Pokémon like Togekiss and Azumarill can learn ice-type moves like Ice Beam and Blizzard, and Ice Punch and Play Rough, respectively.
Azumarill can learn through Technical Machines and Breeding, Mawile can learn through leveling up and breeding, and Togekiss and Mimikyu can learn through TM.
What is a fairy-type Pokémon weak against?
Fairy-type Pokémon are weak against Poison and Steel-type Pokémon. Fairy-type Pokémon have mystical qualities, and the theory is that the metallic nature of steel types affects fairy-types just like mythical creatures are known to be harmed by iron.
Pokémon fans aren’t short on imagination; some believe that the weakness comes from fairy types being radiant and metals reflecting light 🤷.
As for Poison, some believe that fairy types represent nature, and Poison destroys its beauty. The theory leans on the fact that Grass-types are weak to poison, which makes sense ✔️.
What is the best moveset for a fairy-type Pokémon?
There are about 74 fairy-type Pokémon, which makes the possible move combinations for the strongest fairy Pokémon endless.
You should also consider factors like the specific Pokémon and your play style. The most straightforward move that is effective for STAB (Same Type Attack Bonus) is Moonblast.
Since your Pokémon is a fairy-type, you need a fairy-type move.
Coverage moves like Dazzling Gleam help when going against Pokémon that are resistant to fairy moves, and Thunderbolt helps beat Electric and Ice-type Pokémon. Here is a table of possible movesets for specific Pokémon.
Mega Horn, Outrage Close Combat, Moonblast
Dazzling Gleam, Thunderbolt, Play Rough
Sky Attack, Solar Beam, Fly, Draining Kiss
Play Rough, Giga Impact, curse, Shadow Claw
Spirit Break, Hammer Arm, Play Rough
Psychic, Draining Kiss, Moonblast, Destiny Bond
There is no moveset formula that you can adapt to help your Pokémon. If I’ve learned anything since I started playing Pokémon, it’s that experimenting with moves is the only sure way to get your Pokémon ready for battle.
Ice and Fairy Pokémon, whether dual-type or single, are the best to have in a team. They have effective moves, and you can also teach them extra moves to make them stronger 💪.
