    I don't think any Ice-type Pokémon is actually fully made of ice other than Regice, so no. Even Regice, according to its Pokédex entries, can never melt.

    I think just the attacks, like a ice beam, but I don't think they will melt, obviously they gonna feel different.

    Why can Regice never melt?

    Well it isn't like they just melt. They pry do slowly melt if at all, but a trainer would most likely call it back before it got serious.

    Ice-type Pokemon do not directly experience any adverse effects from strong sunlight. However, Fire-type moves, which Ice-type Pokemon are weak to, are boosted further in power, and Water-type moves, which some Ice-types are associated with, are weakened. Additionally, strong sunlight reduces the chances of freeze being inflicted, a status condition that the Ice-type is often associated with. While they don't directly experience any adverse effects, Ice-types are not the best options to use in strong sunlight.

    Pokedex says so.

    Ice types are not MADE of ice, just like how fire types are only associated with fire, not fire theirselves.

    So i'd say no on this one.

    No, they don't. Just like how Fire-type Pokémon aren't physically affected by rain.

    Crygonal is made of ice, just as Heatran and Slugma are made of magma.

    Crygonal's pokedex entry even says so.
    When its body temperature goes up, it turns into steam and vanishes. When its temperature lowers, it returns to ice.
    And Slugma's body will turn to stone if it cools. So, yeah, if more ice types were made of ice, I guess they would melt.

    No the mere fact most ice types can generate subzero cold means the heat of the sun shouldn't really affect them

    Of course not, sunlight reaches in the poles, in a low degree, though.

    Maybe ice-made Pokemons would melt on a volcano area... maybe!

    I would personally think that an Ice-Type has their temperature regulated inside their body so they would not lose heat regardless whether if they jump in a pool of lava.But honestly, real world biology and physics don't apply to Pokemon.
