The current full SC, highlighting any problem areas

Spoiler: show
Snorunt (Ice): Snorunt have powerful jaws that allow them to eat ice and snow. If there is ice or snow in the arena, Snorunt may eat the ice or snow using a move, restoring good health and energy once a battle. If the snow is tainted or poisoned, it will harm them instead. Their biting attacks are 10% more effective than normal. They are adept at hiding in blizzards and can see through them easily. They can see in the dark.

Glalie (Ice): Glalie levitate by default. Their appearance makes them intimidating and their fear based attacks are more effective than normal. They can see in the dark. Due to their massive jaw, biting attacks are 1.2x more powerful than normal. They are adept at hiding in blizzards and can see through them easily. If there is ice or snow in the arena, Glalie may eat the ice or snow using a move, restoring good health and energy once a battle. If the snow is tainted or poisoned, it will harm them instead. Their icy bodies are extremely cold. Any Pokémon coming in contact with them will be chilled similarly to Icy Wind. In its Mega Forme, it surges with icy energies, which actively sap the heat from the air. When using biting moves, it will chill the foe, chilling them as if they were hit with Glaciate. In addition, when performing XX or NO moves, they may choose to cloak them in an aura of Ice energy, causing them to become Ice typed.

Spheal (Water/Ice): Spheal have rotund bodies which allow them to gain speed and momentum very quickly with Rollout. They move primarily by rolling when on land but prefer to swim if possible. If the floor is slippery like an Ice field, they can maneuverable easily using their flippers and tail. They are highly resistant to freezing temperatures and remain nimble in the coldest waters where other Pokémon might be numbed. They are very agile swimmers, generally. They can easily conceal themselves in snowy and icy environments. They are able to hold objects on their nose, allowing them to manipulate objects and use them in attacks. They can see in the dark.

Sealeo (Water/Ice): Sealeo have rotund bodies which allow them to gain speed and momentum very quickly with Rollout. They move primarily by rolling or sliding when on land but prefer to swim if possible. If the floor is slippery like an Ice field, they can maneuverable easily using their flippers and tail. They are highly resistant to freezing temperatures and remain nimble in the coldest waters where other Pokémon might be numbed. They are very agile swimmers, generally. They can easily conceal themselves in snowy and icy environments. They are able to hold objects on their nose, allowing them to manipulate objects and use them in attacks. They can see in the dark.

Walrein (Water/Ice): Walrein have rotund bodies which allow them to gain speed and momentum very quickly with Rollout. They move primarily by rolling or sliding when on land but prefer to swim if possible. If the floor is slippery like an Ice field, they can maneuverable easily using their flippers and tail. They are highly resistant to freezing temperatures and remain nimble in the coldest waters where other Pokémon might be numbed. They are very agile swimmers, generally. They can easily conceal themselves in snowy and icy environments. They are able to hold objects on their nose, allowing them to manipulate objects and use them in attacks. Their large tusks add additional crushing damage to biting attacks, making them 1.2x more potent. They can see in the dark.

Vanillish (Ice): Vanillish move primarily through levitation, able to use bursts of mist to propel themselves. As such, they are relatively agile though not particularly fast. The Vanillite line, being made primarily of Ice, can easily manipulate ice and water, able to produce mists and fogs with great ease and summon up water or ice based attacks faster than others. Their Hail attack is far more effective than normal, starting faster and dealing mild damage to any non Ice-types on the field for each round it is used. Their icy bodies are extremely cold. Any Pokémon coming in contact with them will be chilled similarly to Icy Wind.

Vanillite (Ice): Vanillite move by 'skating' over the ground and levitation, propelling themselves with bursts of mist, able to move fairly quickly and with decent agility. The Vanillite line, being made primarily of Ice, can easily manipulate ice and water, able to produce mists and fogs with great ease and summon up water or ice based attacks faster than others. Their Hail attack is far more effective than normal, starting faster and dealing mild damage to any non Ice-types on the field for each round it is used. Their icy bodies are extremely cold. Any Pokémon coming in contact with them will be chilled similarly to Icy Wind.

Vanilluxe (Ice): Vanilluxe levitates by default, and can move more quickly through the air with bursts of mist. The Vanillite line, being made primarily of Ice, can easily manipulate ice and water, able to produce mists and fogs with great ease and summon up water or ice based attacks faster than others. Their Hail attack is far more effective than normal, starting faster and dealing mild damage to any non Ice-types on the field for each round it is used. Their icy bodies are extremely cold. Any Pokémon coming in contact with them will be chilled similarly to Icy Wind. Their Blizzard attack is more powerful than usual, and won't tire them as much to use.

Bergmite (Ice): Bergmite's icy bodies are extremely cold. Any Pokémon coming in contact with them will be chilled similarly to Icy Wind. Their bodies are also tough and they take only 90% damage from physical attacks.

Avalugg (Ice): Avalugg's large, hefty body is hard as steel, but also causes them to be relatively slow. Their thick carapace of ice mean that take 80% damage from physical attacks. Their icy body is extremely cold. Any Pokémon coming in contact with them will be chilled similarly to Icy Wind.

Seel (Water): Seel can move on land but, being slow and awkward, they prefer to swim if they can. If the floor is slippery like an Ice field, Seel can maneuverable easily using its flippers and tail. They also are very agile swimmers. They are highly resistant to freezing temperatures and remain nimble in the coldest waters where other Pokémon might be numbed. They can easily conceal themselves in snowy and icy environments. They can see in the dark.

Dewgong (Water/Ice): Dewgong can move on land but, being slow and awkward, they prefer to swim if they can. If the floor is slippery like an Ice field, Dewgong can maneuverable easily using its flippers and tail. They are also very agile swimmers. Dewgong are highly resistant to freezing temperatures and remain nimble in the coldest waters where other Pokémon might be numbed. They can easily conceal itself in snowy and icy environments. They can see in the dark.

Glaceon (Ice): Members of the Eevee line have sensitive hearing, at the expense of being more vulnerable to sound-based status techniques like Supersonic. Their Baton Pass and Helping Hand attacks take slightly less time and energy to perform compared to other Pokémon. Glaceon's light colouring and ice-like body patterns allow them to hide better among ice and in blizzards. Glaceon deals slightly more damage with Ice typed attacks than usual.

Regice (Ice): Effectively a living glacier, Regice is always extremely cold. Pokémon who are not used to the cold will become uncomfortable within 5 feet of Regice. This cold aura also slightly reduces the power of Fire attacks. Being inorganic, Regice cannot be affected by Poison in any way.


The issues with the SC (in bullet points or short paragraphs, if applicable)

Ice body is anime canon now.

The proposed changes or additions (please do not rewrite the SC yourself)

[Grass]: Rainstorms will heal them slightly every round the rain falls, while very bright sunlight will regenerate their energy instead.

The concept already exist for all grass types, could we apply this to these select ice types with the same stipulation for either health or rain, whichever you guys feels more appropriate. If you guys want to be liberal, all ice types could use it! In my mind, this promotes defensive play and stall, despite ice being offensively inclined and super frail.
