Glaceon Raid Counters

Raid Boss Movepool

Fast Moves Charge Moves
  • Frost Breath Ice
  • Ice Shard Ice
  • Ice Beam Ice
  • Avalanche Ice
  • Icy Wind Ice
  • Last Resort* Normal
  • Water Pulse* Water

*Note: You need Elite Charged TMs to teach Glaceon its exclusive legacy moves: Last Resort and/or Water Pulse.

Frost Breath deals higher DPS but generates energy slower than Ice Shard.

Avalanche hits like, well, an avalanche. Ice Beam is a little behind in DPS.

Icy Wind is a 3-bar charged move that hits often, especially when paired with Ice Shard.


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!
