Glalie is appearing in 3-Star Raids in Pokemon Go, and if you’re having difficulty defeating it or catching it, we’ve got all the information you need on counters, weaknesses, and best movesets.
The Ice-type creature Glalie first appeared in the Hoenn region of Gen 3’s games Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald. It was added to the Go Pokedex during the Holiday event on December 21, 2017, along with its Shiny variant.
In order to get a Glalie, you’ll either need to defeat and catch it in a raid, or you can instead evolve a Snorunt. A male version will evolve into Glalie with 100 Candy, while a female Snorunt can evolve into Froslass with 100 Candy and a Sinnoh Stone.
Glalie is currently appearing in 3-Star Raids in Pokemon Go, so trainers are keen to defeat it. Here’s everything you need to know about the best counters to take advantage of its weaknesses, and the best movesets if you catch one.
Glalie weaknesses in Pokemon Go
If its appearance didn’t already give it away, Glalie is a pure Ice-type Pokemon. This means it’s resistant to other Ice-type moves, but weak against Fire, Fighting, Rock, and Steel-type moves, so focus on those types.

While Glalie won’t be as difficult to take down as the Legendaries you’ll meet in 5-Star Raids, it will still put up a decent fight with 14,128 CP. Avoid battling it during Snow, as its power will be boosted during this weather type.
Glalie best counters in Pokemon Go
The absolute best counters here would be Mega Y Charizard or Shadow Metagross, but the chances are most trainers won’t have access to these powered-up forms.
Below, you’ll find the best non-Mega and non-Shadow Pokemon to take into battle against Glalie.
|Pokemon||Fast Move||Charged Move||Sprite|
|Metagross||Bullet Punch||Meteor Mash|
|Rampardos||Smack Down||Rock Slide|
|Rhyperior||Smack Down||Rock Wrecker|
We’ve included a good mix of rare and more common Pokemon in the list above, so there should be something for every trainer to use.
If you don’t have any of those, don’t worry, just focus on your strongest Fire and Fighting-types.
While it’s possible to defeat Glalie by yourself, we’d recommend teaming up with at least one other trainer in order to have the best chance at success.
