Although a Freezer only has an ice attack of 3, its Swift ability means you need to be able to block twice its attack (6 ice attack) - I'm happy with that.

However, since a physical block is only 50% effective against an ice attack, does that mean you need 12 physical block to block the Freezer's attack (assuming no fire block or cold fire block)?

Only fire block works at full effectiveness. Ice block is still half, just like physical.

Sorta. Both fire block and cold fire block will do.

Wait, what? Fire block blocks ice attacks at full effectiveness. Vice versa for Ice blocks.

Simon is correct. And Martin actually. I just realized I misread his original post and thought he was saying ice block could effectively block an ice attack. I was trying to correct that, but no need.
