The Ice-type is one of seven Eevee forms in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl and there’s a very specific method of obtaining it. Here’s how to get Glaceon in BDSP, including location and evolution.

Added to the series in Diamond & Pearl in 2006, it is evolved from the Gen I ‘mon in the Sinnoh remakes. But like Leafeon, it’s not as simple as it sounds and you could miss it altogether if you don’t know what to do.

It is well worth the effort if you’re a fan of the Eeveelutions and want to collect them all for your Pokedex, though.

You cannot obtain Glaceon without Eevee, which you can’t get until you’ve defeated the Pokemon Champion and acquired the National Pokedex unless you trade with someone else. If you do get one before completing the game, you need to have beaten Byron in Canalave City.

Once you have its pre-evolution, follow the steps below to get the ‘mon:

  1. Go to Route 217, just southwest of Snowpoint City.
  2. Head to the most northeastern corner until you reach an icy rock. You’ll know it’s correct if you click on it and it says it’s “bone-chilling” to the touch.
  3. Evolve your Eevee by one level while you’re standing next to it. You can do this either by battling in the nearby grass or by giving it a Rare Candy.
  4. Congratulations! You should now have your very own Glaceon.
