This is an offense-focused build perfect for aggressive playstyles. It takes advantage of Glaceon's Ice Crystal mechanic, using the move combination that can generate crystals as fast as possible and deal the most damage.

Muscle Band Increases Glaceon's Standard Attack damage, which works well when generating Ice Crystals while dealing boosted attacks, and Ice Shard is active. Wise Glasses increases Glaceon's Sp. Attack stat, which adds more damage to its moves. For defense, Buddy Barrier will protect Glaceon with extra shields when it charges toward the enemy with Glacial Stage. It also gives a decent amount of HP, which raises Glaceon's survivability.

Eject Button will mainly be used as an escape tool when you get caught out of position. Take note that you can still use the item while you set up Icicle Spear, giving you a chance to reposition.

Your Boost Emblem loadout should consist of 6 Green Emblems to maximize your moves' damage and 4 White Emblems for additional HP. Equip Emblems that improve Sp. Atk since Icicle Spear is your main source of damage.You can freely trade Attack, Critical-Hit Rate, and Movement Speed.

This is a high mobility build that takes advantage of Glaceon's dash abilities to make it hard for enemies to target. It also utilizes stacking items that can bolster Glaceon's offense further. Your gameplay should revolve around maintaining your distance away from the enemy so you can kite them down using Ice Shard without interruption. Maneuver around the battlefield with Icy Wind and keep activating the move to get your ice crystals topped off.

Sp. Attack Specs and Choice Specs provide significant amounts of firepower, especially if you get to stack multiple bonuses during the early game. Make sure to take advantage of the dash you get from Icy Wind and the small movement speed boost you get from Ice Shard to go and out of enemy goal zones to score quick points. Muscle Band, on the other hand, increases Glaceon's Standard Attack damage for a better burst with Icy Wind.

X Speed provides more movement speed for Glaceon to maneuver around the battlefield. Alternatively, running Full Heal gives more protection from crowd control.

Your Boost Emblem loadout should consist of 6 Green Emblems to maximize your moves' damage and 4 Emblems of any color. Equip Emblems that improve Sp. Atk since the build's gameplay is dealing burst damage using Icy Wind. You can freely trade Attack and Critical-Hit Rate.

This is a Unite move-focused build that utilizes Icicle Spear's synergy with Glacial Stage where Glaceon bombards opponents with infinite ice shards when standing on the icy aura, effectively turning the Pokemon into a deadly turret. Your playstyle will consist of getting free hits with both Icicle Spear and Freeze-Dry from afar and leveling up to reach Glaceon's Unite move. Since the build puts a heavy focus on Glaceon's Unite move, it is best to run the build at a party with friends or a squad so you can strategize properly when distributing EXP.

Both Buddy Barrier and Energy Amplifier are the main items of this build as it gives you extra protection and damage once you activate Glacial Stage, respectively. Thanks to Glaceon's fast level scaling, Glaceon will be able to learn its unite move by level 8, which makes securing the first Regice, Registeel, Regirock spawn important. Shell Bell bolsters Glaceon's Sp. Attack stat, increasing the damage output of its moves and ensuring it gets enough firepower during the early game while also sustaining it with HP recovery. The combination of cooldown reduction items and the bonus you get from reaching the Black color threshold allows you to activate Glaceon's moves more frequently.

Your Boost Emblem loadout should consist of 6 Green Emblems to maximize your moves' damage and 4 Black Emblems for extra cooldown reduction. As much as possible, you should aim for emblems that both give Green and Black colors so you can reach their respective color bonus. Otherwise, Green is the priority.

This is Glaceon's full offense build that has you beating down targets with burst damage. Since this build trades off defense for firepower, Glaceon will be easy to knock down and should remain at the back line during most of the fighting. It is best to use this build in a queue with friends or squads so you can coordinate your plays properly.

The build uses all Sp. Attack-related Held Items, which all contribute to increasing Glaceon's move damage: Choice Specs gives a bump up in damage each time Glaceon's moves hit, Sp. Atk. Specs increases Glaceon's Sp. Attack stat each time you score a goal, and Wise Glasses further increases Glaceon's Sp. Attack stat by a set percentage. Having no defensive items means that you must be able to maintain the ranged advantage over the enemy.

Eject Button gives Glaceon extra mobility for repositioning. It should only be used for disengaging from losing fights.

Your Boost Emblem loadout should consist of 6 Green Emblems to maximize your moves' damage and 4 Emblems of any color. Equip Emblems that improve Sp. Atk since the build's gameplay is dealing burst damage using Icy Wind. You can freely trade Attack and Critical-Hit Rate.

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!

Progression and Leveling Guide

Top or Bottom Lane Guide

Level Objectives
1 - 5 • Secure as many Wild Pokemon as you can and get EXP. Do not seek out to knock down opponents unless they over extend their position.
• Steer clear from the enemy Attackers as they may outdamage you in this stage of the game.
• Once you learn either Icicle Spear or Icy Wind, focus on using them to farm Wild Pokemon camps to reach higher levels. Only engage opponents when you have HP or position advantage.
6 - 8 • Glaceon's damage output drastically increases once it learns Ice Shard or Freeze-Dry. You will now be able to generate ice crystals consistently. At this point, use the moves only at easy matchups for quick knockdowns.
• If you have stacking items like Sp. Atk. Specs or Aeos Cookie, use Icy Wind and Ice Shard's boost in moblity to get quick scores.
• Use Glacial Stage for focusing down opponents. Use it to get a burst of strength when contesting objectives.
9+ • Once you reach level 9, you can face off against even matchups using your move combos. Make sure you only activate your moves when you are carrying full ice crystals to get the maximum amount of damage possible.
• The next objective spawns are much easier to contest thanks to the increase in damage output you received from move upgrades. Rally your teammates to lead the charge towards securing Regice, Registeel, Regirock or Regieleki.
• During the final stretch, focus on knocking down opponents instead of Rayquaza.

Jungle Guide

• Hide in the tall grass and wait for the opposing team to over-extend. If you have it learned, gank targets with Icy Wind. Otherwise, join in the fight with your teammates and provide extra damage for pushing the lane with Icicle Spear. then immediately follow it up with a Flame Charge or Aerial Ace, for a surprise attack. However, when the gank fails, do not chase targets towards goal zones.
• Help the lane secure the Vespiquen and Combee spawn.
• If the opportunity presents itself, score your accumulated Aeos Energy.
6 - 9 • Clear the second wave of jungle camps to reach level 6 and get either Ice Shard or Freeze-Dry, your ice crystal generating move.
• Transition back to a lane and help secure its respective objective.
• Seek out and knock down easy targets like enemy Attackers or Supporters.
10+ • Use Glacial Stage for picking off single targets.
• During the final stretch, focus on knocking down opponents instead of Rayquaza.
