How to catch Glaceon in Pokemon Sword and Shield

Glaceon is one of the many “Eeveelutions.” It features in most Pokémon games, along with the TV show and movies. Glaceon even appears in the Super Smash Brothers franchise! In early Generations of Pokémon, all the evolutions of Eevee were difficult to acquire, and often required breeding with a Ditto, along with a hunt for the required evolution method. However, it’s easy to catch all of the “Eeveelutions”, including Glaceon, in Pokémon Sword and Shield!

Glaceon: Pre-evolutions


Glaceon has one pre-evolution, Eevee.


  1. To acquire Glaceon’s pre-evolution, Eevee, breed Glaceon at the Pokémon Daycare, and then travel with the egg in your party until it hatches. You can also find Eevee on Route 4 and in a few other places on the overworld. Eevee sometimes appears in certain Max Raid Battles. To evolve Eevee into Glaceon, use an Ice Stone on Eevee.


Additional Glaceon Facts


  1. Glaceon has the third highest Special Attack stat of all Ice type Pokémon, only lower than White Kyurem and Mega Abomasnow, making it an excellent supplement to certain competitive strategies.


  1. Glaceon can drop its body temperature below -75 degrees Fahrenheit (-59.4 degrees Celsius). Glaceon’s body is so cold that it can create icicles on its fur and flurries of ice in the air around it.


  1. In order to simplify Glaceon’s evolution in Pokémon Sword and Shield, the developers made it possible to evolve Eevee into Glaceon via exposure to a Leaf Stone, instead of having to level Eevee up in proximity to an Ice Rock as in previous titles.


Final Words


Glaceon is a long time favorite of Pokémon fans due to its history of elusivity and its status as one of the Eeveelutions! Lucky for us, it’s easy to find Glaceon in Pokémon Sword and Shield!
