Articuno (Japanese: フリーザー Furiizaa) is an Ice/Flying-type legendary introduced in the Red and Blue versions. Articuno is one of the three legendary birds along with Zapdos and Moltres, the original legendary trio. As with the other two birds, its role is primarily defensive, which it does in a very effective manner. High Base defences and a nice HP combine with a excellent supporting movepool to create a Pokémon which can be very versatile in the support it offers its teammates. Although rarely seen in the standard metagame, it makes for an excellent phazer (a Pokémon using Roar or Whirlwind), as well as being able to provide plenty of support with attacks like Toxic, Heal Bell and Reflect. The addition of Roost to its movepool in Diamond and Pearl transformed Articuno into something with incredible staying power, and its ability Pressure works wonders at whittling away your opponent's PP.
