Gen 4's Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum introduces two new pokemon - two more members of the Eevee family: Glaceon and Leafeon! It's a little bit different to evolve Eevee into these two pokemon though: Leafeon evolves from Eevee by leveling one up near the Moss Rock in Eterna Forest. Glaceon evolves from Eevee by leveling one up near the Ice Rock near Snowpoint City.

Leafeon リーフィア


Leafeon is a grass type pokemon. It has great attack, but not as much as Flareon. But, it can make up for that by learning Swords Dance, with great moves like Yawn, and Synthesis for backup! Plus it's defense isn't that bad to tank hits too.


Glaceon グレイシア


Glaceon is an Ice type pokemon! It has really great Special Attack to use it's signature Ice moves like Ice Beam and Blizzard. It also has the ability Snow Cloak to make it more evasive during a Hail storm! The only problem is it's lack of speed and HP, so treat it with care!


At any case: Which Eeveelution in this game do you prefer, Glaceon, or Leafeon? Which one did you play with in-game in D/P/Pl, if you did have one? What did you think of this new Eeveelution method? Share any other thoughts here!

Honestly, they are kinda bland. Design-wise, they lack some more intense colors. These light blue and light green colors dont really make them stand out.
Also, lets face it, there are many Eeveeloutions. Most of my attention is directed to Umbreon and Jolteon followed by Vaporeon, Flareon and Espeon.
Still though, they are pretty cool and its nice they are completing the Eevee family.
I prefer Glaceon mostly cos of the Ice typing.

I think this new mechanic was pretty interesting, especially on top of all the other weird evolution methods we got in this generation. I sadly never used either on my in-game team because I often had a full team before I was even able to get the Eevee, or before getting to the required location. Still, I sometimes used them in other games but that's out of the question. I like both, but because I love blue Pokemon I like Glaceon slightly better. Also, I do like Ice-types a bit over Grass-types so it fits.

If it was between these two, I'd totally pick Leafeon. In fact, Leafeon is my favourite eeveeelution. Leafeon has a better design imo, it's totally cuter than any other eeveelution, and it's really underrated.

I think Leafeon is the rarest eeveelution amongst people, but it's not fair to it. I really can't understand is not rated amongst other people, I really do think it's a really great pokemon.

When it comes to Leafeon and Glaceon, I prefer Glaceon. I actually did consider using Glaceon as a member of my World Leaders team in Platinum, but I went with Abomasnow instead. I admit that leveling up an Eevee near the Mossy Rock or Icy Rock sure is different.

Glaceon is easily my favourite Eeveelution; I love how graceful its design is. I didn't play with one - and I doubt I will in my current Platinum playthrough - but I'm not generally fond of using Eevee in my games. It's evolution method is a serious pain as well, as it means you can't get one until fairly late in the game.

I think these two have the best designs in the Eevee family. I also really like that they are monotype.

I traded an Eevee egg to my Diamond version so I could use Leafeon during my Egyptian Myths challenge. He was bred on my HG with Sunny Day and I named him Ra :]

When it comes to Leafeon and Glaceon, I prefer Leafeon. I've used it in Pokemon Conquest, and it was wonderful.

Glaceon is overrated in my opinion. On one hand, it's cute and strong, and has a nice design. On the other hand, it's slow, not so bulky, has little coverage, is weak to four types, and resists nothing but Ice. Even though it has 110 Defense, a strong physical Fire or Fighting type move is enough to do it in.

Personally in my Platinum runs, I tend to go for Leafeon more since I'm way to impatient to wait until I can go up to Snowpoint City just to evolve Eevee to Glaceon, ugh. Still though, it wasn't too bad! I really love it's Leaf Blade destroying those Water and Ground types for my Chimchar, nyahaha.

Still though in terms of design, Glaceon is pretty much one of my all time favourite Eeveelutions in general because while it looks simple, it's adorable! The ears remind me of Zelda, weird as that sounds, but yeah!

Glaceon is my favorite eeveeloution. It's design is adorable I love it. I tend to always go for Glaceon if that specific eeveeloution is available. That or id go for Espeon.

I find these two underrated, most probably because they joined the eeveelution party kinda late. Personally these are my two favourite eeveelutions type and appearance wise.

Leafeon.

I like its whole natural appearance, I like how easy it is to evolve an Eevee into it (screw heading all the way up Route Snow-in-my-Feet/216 and 216 to get a Glaceon), and I like the moveset it has. Leaf Blade is an amazing move.

yo I totally designed a very similar Leafeon when I was like nine and I'm pretty sure a lot of others did too lmao

but I do like Glaceon more just cause I don't really like grass types so much? Ice is fun~ And May has a Glaceon <3 but I only used them when I did an Eeveelution team, otherwise I'm not a fan of single-type Pokémon. :P

Which Eeveelution in this game do you prefer, Glaceon, or Leafeon? Which one did you play with in-game in D/P/Pl, if you did have one? What did you think of this new Eeveelution method?

I have always preferred ice types over many and glaceon was no different its easily on my top ten list with its cuteness and elegance! Its shiny form was also very appealing and i was happy to have it and it easily took out all my rivals although its form of receiving was harder than leafeons it was definately worth it for me!

I used both actually to compare in my platinum adventure i used leafeon and in diamond glaceon. Both performed very well but glaceon won me over completely but leafeon is still a very cool eeveelution!

Oh god this evolution method was a lot of work haha mainly cause for me i needed a rare candy for glaceon at that level and it was quite the hike to Mt. coronet haha but overall i kinda like it although i do wonder some days if we had a freeze stone for glaceon and a leaf stone for leafeon i just feel it would be weird and this way made it pretty cool although you have to transfer the stones to each new game no GF Haha :D

I like these two! Glaceon is my favourite out of the pair though mainly because of its appearance as May's evolved Eevee and the fat that it's evolutionary "rock" is near Snowpoint city, one of my favourite places in Sinnoh.

I love these two! Originally I didn't care much for them but they grew on me and are some of my favorite eeveelutions now. :') Leafeon is probably my favorite since it served me so well in Diamond.. the attack and defense stats were awesome, especially with the physical and special split. I loved my Leafeon so much it was one of my first Pokemon to get to the lv. 90s+ in these games. Go Leaf Blade.

Glaceon is lovely too but really frail and slow so I didn't train it until later, though I do love mine.

Glaceon was my favourite eeveelution for a while because it was a really cool Pokémon concept with a stunning design, but since my boyfriend bought a Leafeon plushie for me I've found the Pokémon to be so damn cute and it has a really cool playstyle too. Definitely my two favourite eeveelutions overall haha, they're really cool Pokémon and much more interesting than the standard other Pokemon Eevee turns into.

I remember not liking them very much at first, but in recent years I have definitely had a change of heart. Glaceon is the one I prefer, and I am pretty sure I used it in my SS game. It's been a while, so I could be wrong lol. Leafeon is pretty neat too, and I also like grass Pokemon in general so. I've never used either of them on WiFi battles or anything, but in-game they seem to be useful. I'm pretty sure I used Glaceon to take down most of Lance's dragons.

Glaceon is probably my favorite Eeveelution. Except its always available at the damn end so I never really use it. :( I've actually never really liked Leafeon. I find its design kind of awkward and I prefer many other Grass types available in the same games as it. :(

I love them both but I have to go with Leafeon! Because I tend to like grass-type Pokemon more. However Glaceon is a close second.

Which one did you play with in-game in D/P/Pl, if you did have one?
I have Played with both but the first time playing through Diamond I used Leafeon.

What did you think of this new Eeveelution method? Share any other thoughts here!
I like it, it's something different. However I have to say I wished more Pokemon evolved the same way. It makes the rocks a little bit more useful.

Both are adorable and among my favorites design wise. Leafeon probably gets the nod though because I have used it a bit more than Glaceon. Though it really is hard to pick D: It's also a shame that Glaceon has quite a sad move pool overall :(

I really like both Glaceon and Leafeon. I thought they could've been better utilised in Diamond and Pearl (like basically all of the new evolutions to older Pokémon, who suffered terribly from basically not existing until Platinum). I haven't used them much, at all, but from the extent that I did use them, I really liked them. Their designs are great too.

It's a shame that, depending on game, you don't really get to use them until late in the game, or even until the postgame. I mean if you give yourself an Eevee in DPPt, you can get Leafeon before the second Gym, but can't get Glaceon until about the 7th. Then you have B2W2 where you can't get Glaceon until about 5/6 badges in, and Leafeon until you've completed the game.

Sure, plenty of nice Pokémon are restricted by not being available until later in the game, but Eevee (and its evolutions) just feels like one of those Pokémon you'd use earlier on, who eventually becomes OUTRAGEOUS towards the end.

Either way, I like Glaceon and Leafeon a lot, but Glaceon seems to fare better whenever I use them.

On my first play through of Platinum I used Leafeon, loved it. Very solid team member. I have to admit though, Glaceon is my number 2 Eeveelution behind Espeon so I tend to prefer him out of the two. I liked the idea of how they evolve, something different and I think it really works.

I love both of them, but I prefer using Glaceon. It's been always in top 10 of my favorites, and I use it almost all the time when I have the opportunity. Right now I have Shiny Glaceon not on Platinum but on OR and she's my number one contest Pokemon :)
