# 471.

Type: Ice.

Ability: Snow cloak.

Locations: Evolve Eevee. (Diamond, Pearl).


Hi everyone. Welcome to another Pokémon of the Week. Today we’re reviewing Glaceon, the Fresh snow Pokémon.


Glaceon is the new special sweeper Eevee evolution, Ice is a pretty uncommon and kind of vulnerable type, but overall its ability balances things. It has a decent speed and special attack, defense is ok and move pool is decent as well, it is a very specific Pokémon for very specific situations, but overall useable.


Snow cloak is great. It raises evasion during hailstorm and that’s where you take advantage of specific situations. If you are using a hail team or just use hail at any point your opponent will either take the risk of failing or switching. Most opponents would attack anyway, but if you are winning they will probably switch, and then you will have an extra turn (for switching, attacking or whatever), as I said before, is all about specific situations, whenever you need an extra turn you can earn it this way.


Let’s move on to the move combinations, let’s see what’s up with this guy…



Nature: Modest (+ Special attack, - Attack).

Equip: Petaya berry.

EV´s: 252 Special attack, 129 Defense, 129 Special defense.

- Ice beam

- Shadow ball

- HP fire

- Water pulse / Hyper beam


This is the standard sweeper and easiest set to use. If you are starting to use it or you are a general Pokémon novice try this one first. Sweep and use hyper bean when necessary, no need to switch a lot with this one.



Nature: Calm (+ Special defense, - Attack).

Equip: Leftovers.

EV´s: 252 Defense, 129 Special defense, 129 Special attack.

- Ice beam

- Shadow ball

- Substitute

- Wish


The pseudo-healer set is fairly easy to use. Just sweep and then use substitute-wish combo. Glaceon is not that fast, so keep that in mind and watch your timing when using it.



Nature: Modest (+ Special attack, - Attack).

Equip: Icy rock.

EV´s: 252 Special attack, 252 HP, 6 Speed.

- Blizzard

- Shadow ball

- HP fire/ Water pulse

- Hail


This is the one I told you about some lines ago. If you use hail and your opponent know you have blizzard. Either he/she will risk or if in disadvantage, will switch for sure. So use hail, then sweep. I’d go for HP fire but if you can’t get it water pulse is a decent move as well.



Nature: Careful (+ Special defense, - Special attack).

Equip: Leftovers.

EV´s: 252 HP, 252 Special defense, 6 Attack.

- Curse

- Avalanche

- Tickle / Yawn / Mirror coat / Protect

- Ice shard / Wish / Last resort / Toxic


I know some of you think thare are a lot of special sweepers already, and you are right. Here is a physical variation of Glaceon, and with some variant for you to choose whichever you like the most. I’d go for yawn and toxic for the last moves but try the ones the fit better with your style and needs.


When should I use this Pokémon?

In your casual Eevee team. But if you are going to use it competitively I’d suggest using it in doubles along with Abomasnow as your opening pair. Then things will get interesting. It is ok as your standard special sweeper.


What should I use against this Pokémon?

For what I’ve seen so far, thick fat Snorlax and Miltanks are two major problems for Glaceon, if you see one of these switch or force them to switch. Steel and fighting types are also good against this one, especially if they are fast enough.


Bottom line:

I like this one, but I have to say it is not comparable to Jolteon as special sweeper…





If you have some questions about any game or specific strategy feel free to write to reeve@pojo.com if you find that you can’t write to that address because of some issues, then try reeve.ryu@gmail.com I’ll be glad to help, trade or battle you…


Hope you enjoyed.
