    Meh. Nothing special. Wasn't good this year, will only be worse next year because of Magnezone.

    5/10.

    Stoping claydol is always helpful and the spread is nice but as ^ said Magnezone wont help this cards popularity

    This season 7/10
    Next season 5/10

    I have to say that I am partial to this one. I ran a strictly Glaceon deck at nats and went 6-3 (my first Nats).

    Shutting down an opponents powers and still using your own is so nice. The attack allows spread damage and sets up OHKOs on other Pokémon form the bench.

    You also have to consider Glaceon's Snow Cloak, it frustrates any deck out side of empoleon when you get heads.

    7/10, I think it has more potential next year when DRE and Scramble is gone

    I agree with ^. This card is AWESOME! I still think Next format will still make it playble, just run UMBREON with it. Damage Spread is goin to be BACK, and a card lik this, fits in WELL!!!

    Now, 7/10
    Next Format, 9/10

    Would be good if Warp Point didn't exist.

    lol, low HP unless u got an espeon out but 120 is still little and its not super easy to get both those things out. 50-50 spread, nothing impressive. Good lock, not a super nice attacker, just a soso for a lvl.x. not bad tho so i give it a 6.5/10

    Leafeon is the better of the two. Its more of a support and maybe power with big damage but that is pretty much it
    6/10

    Good weakness (for now), good retreat, great body, and nice attack. He's rather good.

    8/10 for now

    Glaceon is great, until IFDS comes out. Then there's a problem.

    8/10

    For now, the card rocks. Certainly will slow down G&G and a few others. However next year, I honeslty can't guess how good it'll do.

    The one thing that dissapoints me the most with this card is its low HP for a Stage1 Lv.X.
    7/10

    Say hello to your only power denial next format :/

    Someone will try using it. How well will it do? Only time will tell.

    It's an interesting card. By itself, I wouldn't rate it high. But if you are using the #5 Glaceon with Snow Cloak, it has a decent feel to it! :) Stall and shut down powers, while building up for the big hits. I like that it's a stage 1 lvX powerhouse, I like the +30 instead of the x2, and I like the durability that comes in all Eevee decks, the ability to have another choice of evolution if this one isn't the right one at the time. :) This card has potenial all the way to the (snow)bank.

    85/100 (Probobly lower in the next format though....)

    Poke Power lockdown is a great thing... even for just a few turns.

    The weakness to metal can be overcome with Umbreon and many cases won't even be an issue.

    Speed Slide and Snow Cloak from Glaceon #5 are very good attacks as well.

    Easily 88% out of 100.

    ^And next season, Pory may see some play!

    Not really that good. There are easy ways to get around it, unlike Gardy. A bit slow, and it will be even worse next format.

    5/10

    Glaceon lv X. The card it self is a good card. 100 Hp is normal for a stage 1 lv x. It's attack dose 70 for WWC with a chance to do 20 to each of your opponent's bench is an ok attack, and it would be better if it did not require a coin flip. A retreat cost of 1 is great. With a weakness to Metal is a good weakness to have in this format but with the next format coming up this weakness will not be so great to have as Magnezone will most likely become more popular. It Poke-body is what makes this card kind of playable. It shuts off your opponent's poke-powers while it is active. If warp point was not in this card would be much better.
    This card is good but out of everything else out there it hardly makes the cut 6/10

    An awesome card. throw in umbreon and espeon and you have yourself a good deck. Plus who said you have to use espeon and umbreons' attack

    Well...shall we observe?

    Stage 1 Lv.X, it is achievable by T3.

    100 HP, meh, not very good, but 120 with Espeon which can make all the more difference.

    Depending on what Glaceon you play, this card can Level-Up from something very good, 1 for 30 and possible agility is good.

    Glaceon Lv.X's Poke-Body is insanely good, Power Lock is something that is very deadly in the format (just look at Gardy). True, it does have to be active, but it is for a majority of the time.

    It's attack, for WWC is pretty good, 70 with a possible 20 to the bench, if you can hit your flip and that damage builds up fast, your opponent is in deep.

    Weakness to Metal, not much of that around, but Magnezone will get popular by next set.

    Retreat Cost of 1 isn't bad, but if you have Umbreon in play, it's 0, heck, Umbreon even applies with my statement above

    Overall, this is a good card with alot of potential.

    8/10

    ive been looking at this card (mostly because 3/5 of the lvl x's ive ever pulled have been glaceon :confused:)

    It seems pretty good, 3 for 70 isnt bad with 20 to all bench is good.

    8/10
