The updated trivia and/or battle strategy can be found here.
- Froslass is classified as the Snow Land Pokémon.
- All Froslass are female, because they come from using a Dawn Stone on a female Snorunt.
- Its name comes from the words "Frost" and "Lass".
- Its Japanese name is "Yukimenoko", a mix of "Yuki" meaning snow, and "Menoko" meaning girl.

Scary Ghost-Type Stories Edit
- There is a Japanese story that tells of two woodcutters, one old and one young. These men get trapped in a hut during an intense blizzard.
- The older one awoke to see a woman dressed in white, beckoning him to draw nearer.
- Once he got close enough, the woman froze the man with her breath.
- She was about to do the same to the younger man, but stopped at the last second.
- The woman changed her mind because the man had his whole life ahead of him. She told the man to never tell anyone of what happened.
- Many years later, the man found and married a woman named Oyuki (Remember Yuki means Snow). The two ended up having kids together and led a happy life.
- The man noticed that she never aged, and told her that he reminded her of the ghost he had met.
- Turns out she WAS the ghost from long ago. She almost killed him for attempting to break the promise, but when thinking of their children, she simply melted away and was never seen again.
