    All the Pokemon that could be given this ability could just as easily be given Thick Fat. Really, this is a little unnecessary.

    Does Thick Fat protect against Freeze and Burn? I forget. I'll have to go check.

    EDIT: No, it doesn't. So Thermaproof is an ability of its own right.

    But it seems like we're adding this ability in for no reason. If a Pokemon would gain something from no freeze/burn, great, it should get the ability. But if it wouldn't need the ability, cool, give it Thick Fat. The Pokemon who would benefit from this is limited to Physical Sweepers (who hate burns), but for everything else, Thick Fat would suffice.

    The thing is, the making of a pokemon game is all about looks. We're not trying to construct a competitive environment, as people won't be able to battle each other. This ability is mainly gimmicky and intended for filler pokemon anyway.

    But there it some competitive value to this ability. Remember that a pokemon with Thermaproof could safely switch in to a Will-o-wisp or any other burning move we may invent.
