Compare their stats
Cryogonal
HP: 80 ATK and DEF same stats: 50 Sp. Atk: 95 Sp. Def: 135 Speed: 105
Cryogonal has high Special Defense and Speed so, if you want fast Pokemon I will recommend Cryogonal well, it's kinda good Pokemon
Glaceon
HP: 65 Atk: 60 Defense: 110 Sp. Atk: 130 Sp. Def: 95 Speed: 65
Glaceon has high defense and special attack but, its speed is low so, I recommend Glaceon for special attacks and I recommend Cryogonal for special defenses.
There you have it your answer.

Cryogonal can learn recover, and that alone makes it better than Glaceon. Recover will save you a lot of time and money from getting potions. While it is true that Cryogonal's special attack is lower, recover is more than worth the 35-point difference.

Rapid spin is also another perk that cryogonal gets
Rapid spin's only real benefit is the ability to remove hazards, leech seeds, and some trapping effects, none of which are problematic in Nuzlocke runs.
