Pokémon GO Glalie, the “Face Pokémon”, evolves from a Pokémon GO Snorunt, the “Snow Hat Pokémon”. Both Pokémon are pure ice types. Glalie’s best moveset is Ice Shard with Avalanche.
Snorunt is a social creature, has been known to visit human dwellings. Glalie’s icy body will not melt, and it can control ice by freezing moisture in the air.
Glalie has a max CP of 1945. Much like its CP, its stats are also average: STA (160), DEF (162) and ATK (162).
Glalie in the Pokémon GO meta
Glalie is a typical glass cannon in Pokémon GO, with access to several strong movesets and interesting move combinations. Unfortunately, due to it’s weak stats and low Max CP, it’s not really a meta relevant Pokémon.
Luckily, Glalie is known to have a mega evolution, boosting it’s quick attacks with Refrigerate, an ability that converts all Normal Type attacks to Ice type.
Where to find Snorunt and Glalie in Pokemon GO?
Snorunt and Glalie are known to live in caves. Drowzee Biomes are the most likely places for Pokémon GO trainers to encounter these Pokémon. Since Snorunt visits human dwellings, perhaps trainers living in the city would encounter easier.
