Pojo's Nintendo GameBoy/DS
Pokemon of the Week



Rating: 2.70

Date Reviewed: 08.18.08

Ratings are based on a 1 to 5 scale.
1 being the worst.  3 ... average.  
5 is the highest rating.



Japanese name: オニゴーリ (Onigoori).

# 362.

Face Pokémon.

Type: Ice.


Inner focus: This Pokémon won’t flinch.

            Ice body: HP restores when Hail is active.


Height: 4’11’’.

Weight: 565.5 lbs.

Locations: Evolver Snorunt (All versions).


Base stats:

            HP: 80

            Attack: 80

            Defense: 80

            Special attack: 80

            Special defense: 80

            Speed: 80


Pokédex Data:

To protect itself, it clads its body in an armor of ice, made by freezing moisture in the air.


It’s Glalie’s turn today and man it is balanced. 80 is a little bit low for all of the stats, and that makes it very underused in today’s environment but it is not all that bad. It has a predictable but effective moveset. Overall those stats can be fixed in battle thanks to baton pass or choice items.


The movesets for today are…


Glalie@Salac berry.
Nature: Adamant (+ Attack, - Special attack), Jolly (+ Speed, - Special attack).
EV’s: 252 Attack / 129 Defense / 129 Special defense.
- Earthquake
- Ice fang / Ice shard
- Endure
- Explosion


Earthquake and your preferred ice attack are you main weapons, use endure with a good timing and you’ll raise your speed and explode. I like this set in doubles, but works fine in singles as well.


Choice bander.
Glalie@Choice band.
Nature: Adamant (+ Attack, - Special attack).
EV’s: 252 Attack / 252 Speed / 6 HP.
- Ice fang / Ice shard

- Earthquake
- Crunch
- Explosion


This is a pure physical sweeper. You can also make a special one thanks to choice specs and switching the first three moves with ice beam, HP ground and shadow ball


Nature: Timid (+ Speed, - Attack).
EV’s: 252 Speed / 129 Defense / 129 Special defense.
- Spikes

- Substitute
- Toxic
- Block / Protect / Ice beam


This is a decent defensive option with some variations so you can adapt it to your own needs. It lacks of speed but will work ok if you have baton passed some.



Glalie can get a lot better thanks to hail and ice body and/or some berries. It is a good spiker and a decent sweeper specially in underused environments. It can even face some overused Pokémon if you are an experienced trainer and have some luck. Explosion is always a nice finishing move and I’ve always liked ice types.



Fighting type attacks are going to be Glalie’s doom. A quick bribk break from Tyranitar or Aura sphere from Lucario will be more than enough. Fire and rock types will do good as well, but might not be as fast as you need to avoid explosion, so be careful.


Bottom line.

Thanks for reading, I’ll see you next week with another Pokémon of the week. Have a nice summer if it is still summer over there…





Hope you enjoyed.
