Eevee is one of the most interesting Pokemon in the entire series, with its ability to evolve into eight different Pokemon, each with a differing type.

Flareon, Jolteon and Vaporeon were part of the original games, Umbreon and Espeon joined in Gold and Silver, they were followed by Leafeon and Glaceon in Diamond and Pearl and then finally, the Fairy-type Sylveon joined in Pokemon X and Y.

The nine total Pokemon are now the focus of another Pokemon GO Community Day, with people wondering which Pokemon they should use their Eevee candies on, as well as their Stardust.

We take a look at if Leafeon or Glaceon are good in Pokemon GO, as well as their best moveset and how they perform in the GO Battle League.

Is Leafeon Good in Pokemon GO? Best Moveset and PVP Details

The Grass-type Pokemon ranks in the top half of the Eeveelutions overall performance, however, that doesn’t necessarily make it a good Pokemon.

PVPoke ranks it as the 206th best Pokemon in the Great League and the 191st in the Master League. It peaks in the Ultra League but can still only muster 170th place.

That being said, the Ultra League does have a range of strong Water-type Pokemon, including Swampert, Lapras and Gyarados that Leafeon can help to take down. There are better Grass-type picks though.

If you do decide to use Leafeon, its best moveset is:

  • Fast Move – Bullet Seed
  • Charge Move – Leaf Blade
  • Charge Move – Last Resort

Is Glaceon Good in Pokemon GO? Best Moveset and PVP Details

Glaceon performs better than Leafeon in two out of the three main GO Battle Leagues, however, its Great League performance really lets it down overall. It ranks as the 444th best Pokemon in that division.

Thankfully, it doesn’t perform anywhere nearly as bad in the Ultra League, coming in at 148th and it does even better in the Master League, due to its ability to take on Flying and Dragon-type Pokemon.

PVPoke ranks it as the 48th best option in the whole division, with Glaceon picking up key wins against Togekiss, Dragonite, Yveltal, Gyarados, Groudon and more.

Sadly, Glaceon’s best moveset doesn’t require its Community Day move, you can check it out below:

  • Fast Move – Ice Shard
  • Charge Move – Avalanche
  • Charge Move – Icy Wind
