  • Ice Beam/Blizzard
  • Hidden power [ground]
  • Shadow Ball/Substitute
  • Hail/Wish

Pretty simple set. Ice beam/Blizzard gives STAb if you want to go with hail, HP ground covers rock, steel, and ground all at one, shadow ball gives support, and the rest is pretty easy to figure out.

Although I heard from trachy that crits bypass all stat boosts. Maybe that's why people use it.
Makes sense
well in x and y even though this is based on 2011
ice breathe now has 60 power
making  it as strong as blizzard pretty much but no chance to freeze
HP, EVs, Ability, Nature and Item?
you mean hp [ground] covers fire, not ground. I'd give it ice body ability, 252 hp/56 sdef/200 spd (give it some speed for a fighting chance against bulky rock/steel types, modest/bold/calm nature (whatever complements your moveset), and leftovers.

Ice Beam-STAB
Water Pulse-for rock and fire types
Hidden Power Fire-for steel types
Shadow ball-coverage

My glaceon is kinda different but the same as other movesets so here goes

Barrier: max this out to go with mirror coat

Mirror coat: after max barrier opponents will probably go with special so this works

Ice Beam: classic ice STAB

Hidden power(ground): covers most if not all weaknesses

Gen V

Glaceon (F) @ Leftovers
Trait: Snow Cloak
EVs: 252 Def / 252 SAtk / 4 SDef
Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
- Water Pulse
- Blizzard
- Shadow Ball
- Signal Beam

answered Apr 30, 2011 by trachy
is there a TM signal beam?
I think this moveset would be for Gen IV. Glaceon can't learn Water Pulse in Gen V, tell me if I'm wrong.

Hail Team Glaceon

Glaceon - Timid (^Speed -Atk) # Choice Specs/Leftovers
Snow Cloak / Ice Body (DW)
+ 252 Sp Atk EVs / 200 Speed EVs / 58 HP EVs

  • Blizzard (100% accuracy in Hail, STAB, just really powerful)*

  • Hail (JUST in case someone cancels out your wonderful Hail)

  • Substitute/Protect (If you get the chance to set up Only with Leftovers and Ice Body, where you will heal enough HP to actually Sub up, otherwise get Barrier, again, if you get the chance to set up)

  • Shadow Ball/Wish/ (You should get Wish, if with Protect, and if not, get Shadow Ball just for some extra coverage)

The idea behind this Glaceon is one of two choices basically.

Either Spam Blizzard until death with Choice Specs (make sure you use PP Max on Blizzard if this is your option)

~ or ~

Just have a normal type of Glaceon with whatever strategies you have in store for it.
Glaceon may not be useful in these situations, but you can also take advantage of its great Sp. Attack. ~

Status Inducing Move; Yawn: Causes Sleep, or Toxic: Poison foe
Weakness Move; Hidden Power or Dig: covers ground, rock, and steel
Type Move; Ice Beam: ice move with the most power and will never miss
Extra Move; Shadow Ball: 80 power

Equip with Lum Berry to protect from the first status attack
or
NeverMeltIce to power up Ice Beam

Hope I helped :)

  • Shadow Ball
  • Water Pulse
  • Hail

Thanks to all of your answers :)

EVs, Natures? At least give Roles!
You have broken the rules several times, despite me saying it to you. You deserve my down-vote.
EVs, Natures, and roles are not needed for moveset questions, only for RMT. They are preferred however, meaning it is unlikely they will be voted up if they do not have them.

I know this is a little old but here it is:
Glaceon (F) @ Leftovers
Trait: Ice Body
EVs: 252 Def / 252 SDef / 4 HP
Modest Nature
- Hail
- Blizzard
- Protect
- Toxic

This is a role played for stalling.
Hail is to help heal herself while making Blizzard hit no matter what, as Blizzard is her STAB move. Toxic as her stall move and protect so it can help her regain health while blocking a move and slightly injuring an enemy during Hail.

Glaceon (F) Leftovers

Ice Beam
Yawn

Baton Pass/Hidden Power [ground]/Wish

For a hail team staller:
Ability: Snow Cloak
EVs: 128 sp atk, 188 def, 188 sp def, and 6 hp
Nature: Bold (+ defense, - attack)
@Leftovers
- Blizzard (100% accuracy in hail)
- Shadow Ball (coverage)
- Double Team (makes you even more elusive)
- Toxic (ultimate stalling move)
With the high defenses of this Glaceon, you should be able to pull this off in a hailstorm (obviously this isn't the lead of your hail team with this moveset). If you find yourself needing to fight back more conventionally, blizzard and shadow ball cover all types besides most steel types, and are very powerful with Glaceon with it's immense special attack. The strategy is basically to become pretty much un-hittable with snow cloak and double team, and then your opponent won't be able to retaliate from toxic. If you don't think you need shadow ball you can replace it with protect but I don't like to have less than two damaging attacks.

Personally, I think Umbrion makes for a better wall so I'd gather that the best way to go about Glaceon's learnset is to take advantage of it's special attack and pure Ice type and make a Pseudo-Legendary Grass/Ground Dragon buster for breaking through those big, bulky Pokemon like Dragonite, Venusaur, Garchomp, and Zapdos!

enter image description here

Gen VI
Glacion (M) @ Focus Sash
Ability: Ice Body
Modest Nature (+SpAtk, -Atk)

Moves:
-Frost Breath/Ice Beam
-Shadow Ball
-Hidden Power (Ground)
-Wish/Hail

  • Frost Breath: STAB and bypasses stat boosting defensive moves (Like
    Light Screen/Calm Mind)
  • Ice Beam: STAB, 100% Accuracy and has a chance of Freezing the target.
  • Hidden Power (Ground): Covers Rock/Steel/Ground
  • Shadow Ball: Support
  • Wish: Delay/Healing
  • Hail: Healing (If you have Ice Body)

A couple of options here: You can take advantage of the cover hidden power gives, but its power in Gen VI has been fixed to only 60 base SpAtk, so you could swap it with Wish/Hail.

If you can't get HP (Ground), Then (Psychic) is also acceptable as it covers Fighting and Poison types. You can also switch out Hail or Hidden Power for Substitute if you want, but I find that substitute is only really effective if you have a faster Pokemon, (or Trick Room active), which makes it not the best of choices for slow Glaceon.

(Battling Tip: Glaceon makes a great addition to any Trick Room Team!) =D

Actually Frost Breath is no better than it was last Generation. As if to compensate for the increased critical hit ratio this Generation, the power of critical hits is 1.5x rather then 2x. So Frost Breath remains at what is essentially 80 Base Power.
Hmm..Dang you're right. Just checked. >.< Thanks for pointing that out lol.

That being said though, critical attacks apparently bypass all stat modifiers and I believe it is 90 base attack but yea, good point lol. So yea. Knowing that now, I'd go with Blizzard for a bulky Glaceon and Ice Beam/Frost Breath for more more of a sweeper.
hp ground also covers fire
go with ice beam, hp ground, protect, and toxic. this can stall like crazy and can also hit hard. my team goes really well with glaceon, and glaceon can be a big threat to garchomp, salamence, and all the pseudo-dragons (except goodra).

My Team is a UU team and consists of
Klefki
Hariyama
Crobat
(Eviolite) Dusclops
Glaceon
Mega Scizor

Glaceon is my 1st favourite ice type Pokemon and another favourite Eeveelution, This Pokemon has good Sp.Atk tied with the well known cat like eeveelution, Espeon it is also great for its Sp.Def too! But for this set there is no Baton Passing....

Glaceon
Item: Leftovers
Nature: Modest
Ability: Ice Body or Snow Cloak
EVs: 252 Sp.Atk, 252 Sp.Def and 4 HP
Moveset:
-Ice Beam
-Hidden Power (Ground)
-Water Pulse
-Hail

Ice Beam is for STAB and 10% of freezing the target, With this Hidden a Power , a You can take out all your weaknesses except for fighting :( which you will have to defeate with luck, Water Pulse is also for coverage but also confuses the target sometimes, Hail is good to cause damage on everyone and yes sadly your team unless they are all ice types and Hail will activaite it's ability so if you have a snow cloak Glaceon then you can raise your evaison a little so you are slightly hard to hit and if you have ice body you will gain HP ecspeicaly with the leftovers.
