Frozen in Shin Megami Tensei

Freeze (氷結, Hyōketsu)? is a negative status effect that is commonly inflicted after being struck by Ice Skills, but can also be caused by the effect of some weapons and bullets. The target's evasion is dropped to zero when frozen, but there are additional effects depending on the game.
