Glaceon (グレイシア) is the 170th Pokémon in the Sinnoh Pokédex. It is an Ice-Type, and is known as the Fresh Snow Pokémon.

Glaceon uses the Snow Cloak Ability, which increases its Evasion by one stage whilst Hailing. Its Hidden Ability is Ice Body, which heals 1/16th of its maximum HP while it is hailing.

Eevee can evolve into a Glaceon if it Levels Up near an Icy Rock.

Glaceon is in the Field Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 8,960 Steps to hatch. It takes Glaceon One Million Experience Points to reach Level 100.

Biology

Physiology

Glaceon, like the other Eevee evolutions, resembles a canine/feline. Glaceon's fur consists of multiple shades of blue; it is covered in mostly light blue, but has spots on its back, paws, tail and ears that are a much darker blue. Glaceon has three large dark-blue tufts of fur on its face, with two elongated tufts draping each side, resembling icicles.

Gender Differences

Glaceon has no distinguished features that make it appear male or female.

Game Information

Original Games

In all of its game appearances, the only way to obtain Glaceon is to evolve an Eevee. As there is no Icy Rock in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, Eevee cannot evolve into Glaceon in these games.

Spin-Off Games

Glaceon can be found at Crevice Cave B1-B10 & DPB1-B4 in Explorers of Time, Explorers of Darkness and Explorers of Sky. Glaceon is exclusive to Blazing Adventure Squad in Mystery Dungeon 3, appearing at Ripple Seas 1F-17F.

Glaceon makes an appearance at The Ice Lake in Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia. In Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs, Glaceon can be found at the Cave Entrance on Mt. Sorbet in the Present, and in the Ice Temple missions "Time, Time, Time!" and "Save the Frightened Vulpix" by defeating it and obtaining its Slate.

Glaceon inhabits the Iceberg Zone in PokéPark Wii: Pikachu's Adventure. To obtain it you'll have to complete a Tag Race. In PokéPark 2: Wonders Beyond, Glaceon can be found at the Crag Area's Colosseum after retrieving it from Wish Park. To befriend it you'll have to complete an obstacle course that requires climbing the volcano in the area.

The only way to obtain a Glaceon in Pokémon Conquest is to evolve an Eevee.

Trading Card Game

Glaceon is listed as an Uncommon Card in the Rising Rivals and Dark Explorers sets, and as a Rare Card in the Majestic Dawn (2) set. A third Glaceon is in the Majestic Dawn set, but this Glaceon is an Ultra Rare Lv. X Card.

Anime/Manga Information

Anime

May's Glaceon
Glaceon's main appearances in the anime came when May rejoined the Ash and friends during Pokémon Diamond and Pearl temporarily for the Wallace Cup.

Before meeting up with Ash and the others, May decided to evolve her Eevee into Glaceon near Sinnoh's Ice Rock. As there is no known way to evolve Eevee into Glaceon in Hoenn, May came to Sinnoh early in order to evolve her Pokémon before the competition.

May used Glaceon in her final round battle against Dawn's Piplup in the Wallace Cup. The 2 put on an amazing performance that Dawn would win by the slightest of margins.

Cynthia would use her own Glaceon in the episode All For The Love of Meloetta.

Movies

Another trainer would use a Glaceon in Giratina and the Sky Warrior. A Wild Glaceon made an appearance in the Pikachu Short "Pikachu's Great Ice Adventure."

Manga

Glaceon's Manga Information is unknown as of writing.

Pokémon Information

Competitive Battling

Glaceon finds itself in the PU Tier of Competitive Battling as a result of having less-than-stellar type coverage and a limited movepool. Hail being banned in the Never-Utilized Tier didn't do Glaceon any favors, but despite this its Special Attack is on par with Kyurem, making its Special Attacks dangerous. Special Walls will do well because its Attack Statistic is significantly lower than its Special Attack, as will Fire-Type Pokémon provided that Glaceon isn't using Hidden Power Water, Ground or Rock. Also, Stealth Rock limits how many times a Glaceon can be entered into a battle.
