Glaceon as a SubProtect user vs. Walrein Glaceon (F) @ Leftovers Trait: Ice Body EVs: 208 HP / 44 Def / 232 SAtk / 24 Spd Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk) - Substitute - Protect - Blizzard - Hidden Power [Ground] / Toxic Glaceon's advantages: More power: This is Glaceon's main advantage. With a base 130 Special Attack, Glaceon is going to be hitting pretty dang hard when it needs to. This lets Glaceon be more flexible in play than Walrein as it can get out of jams with this firepower. This also lets Glaceon run HP Ground to beat Magneton and Lanturn; 2 Pokemon Walrein could never hope to beat one-on-one. Ability to beat Taunt users: This stems off of the power advantage, but an easy way to stop Walrein in its tracks is to Taunt it. However, basically every common Taunt user is 2HKOed at worst by Glaceon. Not as predictable: While Walrein rarely has an issue with this, the fact that most opponents will scurry to find something to handle a possible Choice Specs Blizzard from Glaceon can often times allow Glaceon to have an easier time than Walrein to get that first Sub up. With SubProtect, that first Sub is often all Glaceon will need to start stalling out the opposition. Glaceon's disadvantages: Less bulk: This is the price Glaceon pays for all that power. Although Glaceon has more power to let it be more flexible in its play, Walrein by far has superior bulk to Glaceon. This lets Walrein set up on a much wider range of offensive threats that Glaceon could only dream about setting up on. Worse typing defensively: Again, this kind of stems from the lack of bulk. Walrein's secondary Water-typing may hinder it with weaknesses to Electric- and Grass-type moves, but it also gives the walrus a resistance to Water-type moves as well as a neutrality to Fire- and Steel-type moves. This is big if Walrein is forced to try and setup against something like Ferroseed or Moltres as Glaceon has no hope to set up on either. Super Fang: While Glaceon does have offensive firepower, it simply can't cut through the likes of Cryogonal and Slowking. However, thanks to Super Fang, Walrein can cut through these 2 with relative ease as it will clip off 50% of the remaining HP that such threats have. This can also spare some SubProtect PP should Walrein start stalling very early in a match.
