Icicle Spear Build Explanation

This build is centered on quickly accumulating Ice Crystals using Ice Shard, then unleashing a barrage of Icicle Spears to burst down targets.

  • Wise Glasses provides Glaceon with a large Sp. Atk. boost thanks to the item's percentage bonus.
  • Slick Spoon gives Glaceon more Sp. Atk. and a Sp. Def. penetration effect. It also boosts the Pokemon's HP for durability.
  • Energy Amplifier further boosts Glaceon's overall damage output when it uses Glacial Stage.
  • Curse Incense can also be a replacement for Energy Amplifier, allowing Glaceon to apply an HP regeneration reduction using its attacks and moves.
  • X Speed gives Glaceon the mobility it needs to get in range of Icicle Spear and maneuver around while channeling.
  • The build's Boost Emblem loadout should consist of 6 Green Emblems to maximize Glaceon's damage and 7 Black Emblems for cooldown reductions. This can be achieved by equipping at least three (3) Emblems that are both Green and Black.
  • Equip Emblems that increase Sp. Atk to improve Icicle Spear's damage further.
  • Attack, Sp. Def., and Defense can be freely traded for the other stats.

Since the build is centered on Ice Shard and Icicle Spear, equipping items that will maximize Glaceon's attack damage during Ice Shard and Icicle Spear's damage output is the ideal item combination.

As the results show, Wise Glasses, Slick Spoon, and Energy Amplifier will produce the best results for the build. The item combination's Icicle Spear damage is only marginally lower than the highest result while doing decently for Ice Shard's attack damage. It also does not require stacking for maximum damage.


The Icicle Spear damage tests are conducted in Practice Mode with Goodra as the Training Partner. The Pokemon is set to level 15 and has no items equipped. The results are taken from the Dmg. Taken data of the Training Partner that's shown in the Battle Data tab in the match results screen.

The Ice Shard damage test is conducted using the Training Dummy in Practice Mode. The results are taken from the Total Damage data.

Icy Wind Build Explanation

This build utilizes the mobility and burst damage of Icy Wind and the slow from Freeze Dry to pick off targets.

  • Slick Spoon gives Glaceon Sp. Atk., HP, and a Sp. Def. penetration effect.
  • Shell Bell gives Glaceon more Sp. Atk. and a healing effect. It also lowers the Pokemon's move cooldowns.
  • Energy Amplifier further boosts Glaceon's overall damage output when it uses Glacial Stage. It also provides more cooldown reduction for the Pokemon's moves.
  • Wise Glasses can be a great replacement for Energy Amplifier, providing a large, flat Sp. Atk. boost.
  • Eject Button gives Glaceon more mobility on top of Icy Wind.
  • However, X Speed can work just as well.
  • The build's Boost Emblem loadout should consist of 6 Green Emblems to maximize Glaceon's damage and 6 Black Emblems for more move cooldown reduction. This can be done by equipping at least three (3) Emblems that are both Green and Black.
  • Equip Emblems that increase Sp. Atk to improve Icy Wind's damage further.
  • Attack, Sp. Def., and Defense can be freely traded for the other stats.

Since the buid is centered on Freeze-Dry and Icy Wind, equipping items that will maximize their damage is the best item combination.

As the results show, Slick Spoon, Shell Bell, and Energy Amplifier will yield the best outcome for the build. The item combination produced the second best result for Icy Wind, but it did just average for Freeze-Dry, which is perfectly acceptable considering Icy Wind will be Glaceon's primary means of damage. Also, the cooldown reduction from Shell Bell and Energy Amplifier will be benefitial for Glaceon in the long run since it needs to constantly cast Icy Wind to maintain its ice crystals.

As for alternatives, replacing Energy Amplifier with Wise Glasses will be the best choice. The item combination generated the best result for Icy Wind without the need for extra tasks like stacking or triggering effects to be done first.


These damage tests are conducted in Practice Mode with Goodra as the Training Partner. The Pokemon is set to level 15 and has no items equipped. The results are taken from the Dmg. Taken data of the Training Partner that's shown in the Battle Data tab in the match results screen.

Move Explanation
Icicle Spear ImageIcicle Spear Icicle Spear is a great single target, burst move with the crystal mechanic. The move synergizes well with Glacial Stage, turning Glaceon into a mini turret when it uses the move while inside the affected area!
Ice Shard ImageIce Shard Ice Shard can keep Glaceon's Ice Crystal supply going while giving the Pokemon extra damage and a small boost in movement speed.

For a more mobile playstyle, pick Icy Wind over Icicle Spear. Ice Shard gives more consistent Ice Crystals for Glaceon to use. If you want to generate Ice Crystals while also dealing damage, pick Freeze-Dry instead

How to Play Glaceon

Jump to Section

Get to Level 6 Quickly

Pokemon UNITE - Glaceon Reaching Level 6

Unlike other Eeveelutions like Sylveon and Espeon, Glaceon's power spike happens when it learns its Ice Crystal generating move at level 6. Moreover, Glaceon's initial moveset is lacking when it comes to damage, negatively impacting its security capabilities during the early game. You will want to focus on securing all the Wild Pokemon spawns that you can so you can evolve and get to your move upgrades early. You will depend on Glaceon's Boosted Attacks to generate Ice Crystals during the early game.

Jungle is Recommended

Pokemon UNITE - Glaceon Attacking Baltoy

It is recommended to take the Jungler role and clear out the Wild Pokemon camps in the center part of the map to get the most EXP during the early game as fast as possible. This ensures that Glaceon reaches level 5 after the first wave of spawns in the central area.

Pick Damaging Move Based on Playstyle

Pokemon UNITE - Glaceon Using Icicle Spear on Snorlax

Both of Glaceon's damaging moves offer a decent amount of firepower. However, they have key differences that can help augment your playstyle.

Get Extra Mobility with Icy Wind

Icy Wind gives Glaceon extra mobility to maneuver around the battlefield. The move lets you jump over small walls and chase down fleeing enemies. Although its overall damage output is lower than Icicle Spear, you will find the move's utility helpful as you dash around to flank enemies and dodge attacks. Moreover, Icy Wind is great during the early game as Ice Crystals can be sustained just by attacking.

Icy Wind: Glaceon Move Effect and Cooldown

Get More Damage with Icicle Spear

Icicle Spear offers high amounts of damage, especially when you have full Ice Crystals. The move synergizes well with Glacial Stage as you can effectively bombard a target with endless shards while Glaceon is within the icy zone. Although it is not as flexible as Icy Wind, it is still a great move for bursting down single targets.

Icicle Spear: Glaceon Move Effect and Cooldown

Generate Crystals Before Using Icicle Spear or Icy Wind

Aside from its Boosted Attacks, Glaceon can generate additional Ice Crystals from the move it learns at level 6. Depending on your playstyle, one choice may be more efficient in generating Ice Crystals than the other.

Get More Offense with Freeze-Dry

Freeze-Dry is a more straightforward, damaging move that can also freeze enemies in place. A can generate extra 2 Ice Crystals for each opposing Pokemon it hits. However, missing the hit will not give Glaceon any Ice Crystals. Keep this in mind if you are trying to set up combos!

Freeze-Dry: Glaceon Move Effect and Cooldown

Get Consistent Ice Crystals with Ice Shard

Ice Shard increases Glaceon's Standard Attack speed and damage while giving the Pokemon a small boost in movement speed. Once activated, Glaceon can generate Ice Crystals outright or when you deal damage with Standard Attacks. One notable interaction is that you can activate the move even while Icicle Spear is active, allowing you to get extra shards to throw at the target!

Ice Shard: Glaceon Move Effect and Cooldown

Stick to the Backlines

Glaceon's passive ability, Snow Cloak, can negate one crowd control move per cooldown allowing you to charge enemies effectively. While you are incentivized to get aggressive with the ability, it is still important to still keep Glaceon situated at the back of the line so it can offer suppressive fire for the team. Glaceon also lacks proper sustaining moves that can help it stay in the fight longer. Additionally, Being a squishy Attacker, it is advised to steer clear from Speedsters or All-Rounders, which can dive towards you and break your position.

Stay Within the Zone After Activating Glacial Stage

After using Glacial Stage, standing within the icy zone will allow Glaceon to generate Ice Crystals in quick succession. Activating Icy Wind or Icicle Spear while inside the zone will quickly replenish each crystal and cause the move to keep firing shards!

Counter with Burst Damage

Much like other Eeveelutions, although Glaceon can dish out massive damage, it can easily be bursted down due to its low defenses. Pokemon that can burst down Glaceon before it can fill up its Ice Crystals are the best picks against Glaceon.

How to Beat
• Much like Glaceon, these Pokemon prefer to keep their distance from opponents when fighting. They also have high damage potential that can knock out Glaceon quickly. However, they are fragile and can get knocked out by Glaceon fast. Winning against these Pokemon is all a matter of striking first.
• When using Icicle Spear, either make sure to max out on ice crystals first before unleashing it on them or build up ice crystals by activating Ice Shard and attacking them before using Icicle Spear.

• When using Icy Wind, use Freeze-Dry to increase Glaceon's Sp. Atk. temporarily and slow them, then unleash the projectiles on them. Make sure to max out on ice crystals first before releasing the projectiles.
• If needed, use Glacial Stage to quickly build up ice crystals, particularly when using Icicle Spear since Glaceon can fire more projectiles.

Easy Matchups for Glaceon

How to Beat
• These Pokemon excel in close combat and rely mostly on their attacks or combos to deal damage. However, they're melee and Glaceon can kite them down with its burst damage.
• When using Icicle Spear, build up ice crystals by activating Ice Shard and attacking them before using Icicle Spear.
• When using Icy Wind, use Freeze-Dry to increase Glaceon's Sp. Atk. temporarily and slow them, then unleash the projectiles on them. Make sure to max out on ice crystals first before releasing the projectiles.
• If needed, use Glacial Stage to quickly build up ice crystals, particularly when using Icicle Spear since Glaceon can fire more projectiles.

How to Beat
• These Pokemon usually stick with their allies and rarely venture alone. Although they themselves pose no threat to Glaceon, their support capabilities makes them valuable during fights.
• Take them out first using Icicle Spear or Icy Wind with the help of Ice Shard or Freeze-Dry and Glacial Stage to remove their team's support.

Shred Through Their Durability

Highly Durable Pokemon
Goodra Image Lapras Image Snorlax Image Trevenant Image
How to Beat
• These Pokemon are extremely durable, making it hard for Glaceon to take them out quickly. However, Glaceon's ice crystals can still shred through their durability.
• When using Icicle Spear, build up ice crystals by activating Ice Shard and attacking them before using Icicle Spear.
• When using Icy Wind, use Freeze-Dry to increase Glaceon's Sp. Atk. temporarily and slow them, then unleash the projectiles on them. Make sure to max out on ice crystals first before releasing the projectiles.
• If needed, use Glacial Stage to quickly build up ice crystals, particularly when using Icicle Spear since Glaceon can fire more projectiles.

Best Teammates for Glaceon

Pokemon Explanation
Machamp ImageMachamp Mr. Mime ImageMr. Mime Snorlax ImageSnorlax Aggressive Frontliners
Pokemon that can stay in the frontlines and grab the enemy's attention allows Glaceon to freely and safely move around and pick off targets. They can also keep enemies away from Glaceon using moves like Heavy Slam and Submission to ensure Glaceon's survival.
Hoopa ImageHoopa Sylveon ImageSylveon Wigglytuff ImageWigglytuff Can Weaken Defenses
Pokemon that can decrease a target's defenses can indirectly increase Glaceon's damage output. Although Glaceon is more than capable of taking out targets on its own, having moves that can also slow or disable enemies like Shadow Ball and Sing makes Glaceon's job as a damage dealer easier.
Absol ImageAbsol Aegislash ImageAegislash Cinderace ImageCinderace Standard Attack Damage Dealers
Since Glaceon's moves can rip through a target's HP quickly, Pokemon that rely heavily on their attacks to knock out enemies can benefit from Glaceon's offense. Glaceon should be able to deplete an opponent's HP low enough to give the damage dealers confidence to go in for the knockout.
