Let's go into some more detail on each below.

Cold Resistant Monsties

Some Monsties have the Warming Gene, which mean they cannot be frozen. These generally include Popo, Zamtrios, Lagombi, and others found in the Loloska region.

Use Hot Mist

Hot Mist can be purchased from the general store in Loloska. You can then apply it to your party to grant cold resistance for a short amount of time.

Armour

Some Armour is naturally Cold Resistant. The Zamtrios and Popo equipment will stop you from being frozen, but not your Monsties. You can check an armour pieces skills in the equipment menu to see if it grants Cold Resist.

Talismans

Some Talismans can grant Cold Resistance. Check the Melynx Inc. merchant for new talismans, keeping an eye out for blue Cold Res ones.
