No really, how do you make Glaceon top tier in Pokemon X/Y? I don’t know how. Ready for some internet fluff on your Saturday?
For those who don’t know, Glaceon is my second favorite Pokemon (to the god that is Metagross). He’s a gentleman’s gentleman, and the only faces he makes range from “smug” to “so f***ing smug it’s uncomfortable for everyone.” He also rocks all of the bangs. And he owns the family of Eevee evolutions. He’s like the Godfather of the Eevees. Sylveon? F*** that guy.
Here’s my issue – in the illegal animal fighting circuit known as “Pokemon,” Glaceon sort of sucks. His smugness just doesn’t translate into ripping the jugulars out of Pikachus. He’s a glass cannon, because (prepare for Pokemon jargon) he’s the absolute worst typing in the game, and the fact that he gains STAB with ice type moves, which is one of the best type coverages, just can’t make up for the fact that literally everything kills this little guy.
Before, you could sort of mask Glaceon’s deficiencies by creating a “Hail” team, but that’s not really doable anymore. So my question to you, dear “The Audience,” is how do I make Glaceon viable? Is it possible? Can you try? Because I can’t make it happen and it’s making me a sad panda.
