Glaceon is garbage, unless it's in Hail. Most of the time it'll be a waste of a slot. If you're worried about Hail just slap on a weather-abuser or like...a Fire Pokemon. Something like RD Kingdra or even just slap on something really powerful like Victini or Darmanitan to help with Hail. You can hit half to 3/4 of most Hail teams for SE damage + SR.

I back PlatinumDude's suggestion of Heracross, at present Scarf Mienshao can OHKO 5/6 of your team and that is a massive problem. Adding Cross is not going to alleviate the problem entirely but at least you have something that can survive HJK spam. Actually I think Specs Chandelure > Porygon will help greatly against Hail/ScarfMienShao.

Chandelure @ Choice Specs
Nature: Modest
EV: 252 SpAtk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
- Overheat / Fire Blast
- Energy Ball
- Trick
- Shadow Ball

Absolute monster, I'd go with Fire Blast for extra power but Overheat does deal like 70% to Umberon.
