Since Shadow Pokémon are extremely expensive to power up and require specific events to remove Frustration with a Charge TM, they will NOT be listed as raid counters in this article. That being said, if you have the shadow form of a listed raid counter Pokémon powered up and TMed, use it.

With common counters, melting through Glaceon shouldn’t be too much of a challenge for the high-level trainer with the correct counters and movesets. Lower level trainers may wish to group together in a duo or trio to ensure a win.

All the best, trainers!
