Cryogonal Pokémon GO: What You Need to Know

Cryogonal is an Ice-Type Pokémon Nintendo introduced in Generation 5. It is known in the Pokédex as the Crystallizing Pokémon, and has no evolutions in either direction.

In Pokémon GO, Cryogonal sports a maximum CP of 2,798, with 190 attack, 218 defense and 190 stamina. It can use Frost Breath, Ice Shard, Aurora Beam, Night Slash and Water Pulse.

From a player-vs-environment perspective, Cryogonal is an all-around lackluster Pokémon with few applications. It is outclassed in almost every way by other Pokémon. The same is largely true in player-vs-player contexts, making Cryogonal more decorative than useful.
