the world's angriest snowflake
I'm not sure what I think about this guy. It's a rare no-evolution Pokemon in this 5th Generation, and also the 3rd straight pure-Ice type. Sure, it specializes in Defense, but is that really different enough?
that's something that bugs me. Unova has a bunch of creative new typings for Ghost and Bug, but at the same time it has like 4 pure-Psychic lines, 4 pure-Fighting lines, and 3 pure-Ice lines. Not much ingenuity there, huh?
But back to Cryogonal, I just think it's a weird face it has. I don't know if that's a mouth or mustache down there, and I don't know if the eyes are supposed to be fierce or happy. They're in the ^_^ shape, but for some reason they look imposing to me. Like they're angry. But in the end, they're obviously just a glowing circle behind a mask of sorts. It's ambiguous, is what I'm saying.
I mean, I think he looks kinda cool, I like the interlocking look (like Cofagrigus' face), but I don't think Cryogonal is really anything special, either. just too damn confusing.
