Glaceon is a quadruped, mammalian creature covered in light-blue fur that can be frozen into sharp quills. It has long, pointed ears, dark eyes, and a small nose. A teal crest with two dangling flaps adorn its head, resembling hair or headgear. Glaceon has two dark blue, rhombus-shaped markings on its back; the tip of its tail, feet, and flaps are the same shade of blue.
By controlling its body temperature, the moisture in the air freezes, producing ice crystals surrounding it. It is capable of freezing its fur into sharp needle-like icicles, used to tackle its prey. It can drop its body temperature below -75 degrees Fahrenheit. Those captivated by Glaceon's beautiful snowfall will be instantly frozen without realizing it. Glaceon is rather popular in ski resorts due to its ability to create powdery snow. Glaceon is usually found in urban areas under the care of humans. It is rarely found in the wild.
A Glaceon appeared in Eevee & Friends along with an Eevee and its evolved forms, including the newly introduced Sylveon. It has an artistic personality and decorates its room with elaborate ice sculptures.
Glaceon appears as a trophy alongside its counterpart, Leafeon.
A Fresh Snow Pokémon and a Verdant Pokémon. They are both evolutions of Eevee. Eevee can evolve into seven different Pokémon depending on what it has in its possession and where it is when it evolves. Glaceon is an Ice-type and can freeze all the fur on its body into protective quills. Leafeon is a Grass-type, and the air around it is always fresh and clean.
This Pokémon was unavailable prior to Generation IV.
Glaceon has the lowest base Attack stat of all Eeveelutions.
Like many of the Eeveelutions, Glaceon shares characteristics with foxes, dogs, and cats. It may be more closely based on an arctic fox, due to their habitat. Assuming Leafeon draws inspiration from Siamese or other colorpoint cats, Glaceon may also draw some inspiration from them (especially blue points). Its "hair" resembles an ushanka or a scarf hat.
Glaceon is a combination of glace (French for ice) or glacier (a large, slow moving mass of ice on land) and eon (an immeasurably long period of time, possibly referring to how long evolution takes naturally). Eon is a suffix all Eeveeevolutions share and was Eevee's English prototype name. Its name may also be an anagram of the English word congeal (meaning to freeze)
Glacia may derive from glace (French for ice), glacier (a large, slow moving mass of ice on land), or grace (as in graceful).
