    To be honest I never really enjoyed Glaceon's addition to the Fouth generation as there were plenty other ice types with double types, such as Weavile. As far as that goes, I preferred Leafeon mostly because of it's Leaf Blade attack it learns around lvl 65.


    As far as that goes.. what do you guys think?

  • It personally depends on who I need added to my team. If I need a killing machine good against Dragons and Cynthia's Garchomp, I would pick Glaceon. Other than that, I would pick Leafeon.


    Yea I definately agree with that, Cynthia's Garchomp is a butt to defeat. However, it's extremely weak against Leafeon. In fact, you can take her Garchomp out with on hit if you use Growth twice and then use a Leaf Blade.

    That may be true. However, Glaceon has a gigantic type advantage due to Garchomp being a Ground/Dragon type, which Ice is super-effective against both. Add that in with a STAB attack and Garchomp is screwed.

    Then again, Garchomp being a Ground type, it's specific weakness being Grass. It does x4 damage for Grass type moves and if the user is a grass type it's another x2. So x8 damage.

  • nah dragon resists grass so grass is neutral on garchomp, you just get the stab.


    Interesting you said that... because I did a lets play of Pokémon Platnium... and while using Leafeon and her Leaf Blade it played the Super Effective sound.. Hrrm... maybe I wasn't paying attention.


    Yep, Cressel you're right. Pardon my mistake.


    "Defensively, Dragon types have resistances to Electric, Grass, Water and Fire. However, many fully-evolved Dragon-type Pokémon have a double weakness to Ice-type moves, due to their secondary types.Dragon is the only type resistant to all types of starter Pokémon, including Electric." -Bulbapedia
