New Status Conditions
As Pokémon Legends Arceus has got a new battle system, it has removed two of the status conditions that can be found in other Pokémon games and has replaced them with some new ones that follow the similar details.
Frostbite is a new status condition that works in a similar manner to burns, but with a cold focus. Instead of being frozen, the effects are slightly differentEffects:
Each turn, the Pokémon afflicted with the Frostbite loses 1/16th of its Max HP
The Pokémon's Special Attack Stat is cut by 50%.
Frostbite can be removed when the opponent or user uses the moves: Flame Wheel, Flare Blitz
During the snow weather, Pokémon are more likely to be afflicted by Frostbite.
