Cryogonal is a Pokémon that looks like a gleaming blue hexagonal snowflake. Its facial expression is frozen, leaving Cryogonal with a motionless, hostile countenance. Two fractures run across its face; the higher one houses its eyes, while the lower one functions as a mouth. It has two luminous eyes and a big mouth that holds an extensible chain of ice for hunting.

When its body temperature rises, it turns into steam and vanishes, but when it cools, it returns to ice. As a consequence, Cryogonal is uncommon in the summer. It appears in the form of ice crystals in snow clouds. Cryogonal captures its prey using chains constructed of ice crystals at a temperature of -148° F. Cryogonal has been known to transport victims to an unknown place.
