It feels really weird to change Chromera since its state of balance is perfectly acceptable. Ice Beam is primarily for hitting Garchomp, it does hit shit like Tomohawk, Dragapult, Zapdos, Dragonite, Landorus-T and Rillaboom. I think people arguing that its only for Garchomp aren't completely wrong, but it is not a dead moveslot if your opp doesn't bring Chomper. Anyways, Chromera's ability to instantly drop Garchomp was one of its useful traits; ultimately I don't think that trait should have existed in the first place. Cutting Ice Beam is moving Chromera more towards what I think is an ideal place in terms of design.

Thunder(bolt) are mostly useless and keeping them would be solely for futureproofing against some Electric-weak shit added to the meta since currently its really for Pex and Argh and Chromera has better tools for both.
