Normal-type Pokémon first seen in Generation I, Eevee (Japanese: Eievui) is known by its Japanese name.
It is possible to develop into one of the following eight distinct Pokémon through a variety of means:
- When an Eevee is exposed to a Water Stone, it will develop into a Vaporeon.
- When exposed to a Thunder Stone, Eevee undergoes the evolution that allows it to become a Jolteon.
- When it comes into contact with a Fire Stone, Eevee will develop into Flareon.
- When leveled up during the daylight with a high friendship during the day (Generation II forward, except for Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen), Eevee will evolve into Espeon. This evolution cannot take place in locations with a Moss Rock or Ice Rock or when the Pokémon is familiar with a Fairy-type attack.
- In Pokémon XD, it also develops into Espeon when the player raises its level with a high friendship while carrying a Sun Shard in their Bag.
- Eevee will evolve into Umbreon if it is leveled up during the nighttime with a high friendship (from Generation II forward, with the exception of Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen), unless it is in a place with a Moss Rock or Ice Rock, or if it is already familiar with a move of the Fairy type.
- In Pokémon XD, it also develops into Umbreon when the player raises its friendship level to high and carries a Moon Shard in their Bag at the same time.
- When Eevee is leveled up in the vicinity of a Moss Rock (Generations IV to VII and Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl), when it is exposed to a Leaf Stone (Sword and Shield, and Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl), or when the evolution is forced in proximity to a Moss Rock while either being exposed to a Leaf Stone or leveling up in the vicinity of a Moss Rock, it will evolve into Leafeon (Legends: Arceus).
- Eevee evolves into Glaceon (except for Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl) when it is leveled up in proximity to an Ice Rock (Generations IV to VII and Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl), when it is exposed to an Ice Stone (Sword and Shield), or either through exposure to an Ice Stone or the evolution being forced in proximity to an Ice Rock (Legends: Arceus). Eevee evolves into Sylveon (except for Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl)
- The Gigantamax variant of Eevee is available. If your Eevee has the Gigantamax Factor, it will never develop.
Eevee is the game mascot and the Pokémon that players use to begin their adventure in Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!. It is also the Pokémon that serves as the starting Pokémon for the main protagonists in Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness and Pokémon Conquest.
In Pokémon Café Mix, it is the player’s first Pokémon employee and the starter Pokémon when they begin the game. In Pokémon Yellow, it is also the player’s opponent’s beginning Pokémon, despite the fact that Professor Oak had planned to give it to the player at first.
Eevee is a little mammalian Pokémon that walks on all fours and has fur that is mostly brown in color.
A cream hue may be seen at the very end of its bushy tail, as well as on its huge, hairy collar. It has thin, short legs with three little toes and a pink paw pad on each foot.
Its legs are shorter than its body. Eevee has dark brown eyes, long pointed ears that are dark brown on the inside, and a black nose that is rather little.
In Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!, the player begins the game with an Eevee known as a Partner Eevee, which is a unique variant of the Pokémon.
The Partner Eevee has eyes of a purplish color, and its fur is a lighter color overall. It’s quite possible that these design features were lifted straight from the Pokémon anime, which began utilizing comparable characteristics with the release of Pokémon the Series: Ruby and Sapphire.
The base statistics of Partner Eevee are greater, and it can learn moves that regular Eevee cannot learn. The flower-shaped marking may be found at the very tip of a female Partner Eevee’s tail.
Prior to the release of Pokémon Sword and Shield, this characteristic was one of a kind and could not be seen on any other female Eevee.
As a real indicator of gender, the distinctive pattern on the Eevee’s tail appears on every female Eevee in Pokémon Sword and Shield and subsequent upgrades to Pokémon GO.
The natural population of Eevee is quite small, and the vast majority of the population lives in urban and suburban areas.
On the other hand, it is considered to have an abnormally structured genetic structure that is susceptible to being molded by the environment in which it lives. Because of this, it is able to evolve to survive in a wide variety of environments.
Eevee has the ability to undergo eight distinct evolutions during its lifetime. Eevee has the ability to take on the appearance of its Trainer if given the chance. It is claimed that the answers to the riddles behind Pokémon evolution may be found inside Eevee’s chromosomes.
As a Gigantamax Eevee, it has grown in size and acquired a fluffier appearance. The fur collar grows larger and features many triangular furs that point upward in a straight line. There are three red clouds that encircle the right ear in the shape of a circle.
Because the fur is getting fluffier and more luscious, any adversaries that get trapped in it will get attracted by it and lose the will to fight as a result. After using Gigantamax, Eevee becomes even more active and rowdy, seeking to play with its opponent despite frequently inadvertently crushing them with its bulk due to their smaller stature.
Eevee is the only Pokémon that has ever been discovered to have the ability to use the Z-Move Extreme Evoboost.
Only Partner Eevee is able to execute moves such as Bouncy Bubble, Buzzy Buzz, Sizzly Slide, Glitzy Glow, Baddy Bad, Sappy Seed, Freezy Frost, Sparkly Swirl, and Veevee Volley, which is a Partner Power.
Gigantamax G-Max Cuddle is a special move that can only be learned by Eevee, the only Pokémon that can learn it.
- Palindrome: “Eevee” is Eevee spelled backward.
- The English name for Eevee likewise consists of just two distinct characters, which is fewer than any other Pokémon’s English name has.
- Motofumi Fujiwara is the one responsible for the design of Eevee.
- With a grand total of eight different forms, Eevee is the Pokémon that has the most branching evolutions.
- Because of its evolved forms, Eevee has acquired a number of traits that set it apart from other Pokémon:
- Eevee is the only Pokémon with more than three different types of evolution, giving it the most evolved forms of any other Pokémon.
- Eeveelutions is a phrase that was created by fans to describe the several evolutions of Eevee. The term became official after it was used in the strategy guide for Pokémon Stadium 2, and then it was used in a TCG Theme Deck.
- Eevee was originally referred to as “Eon” in early English advertising material for Pokémon Red and Blue. “Eon” is the suffix that is added to all of Eevee’s evolved forms.
- Eevee is the only Pokémon in Generation I to have more than one evolution path available to it.
- Due to the absence of a time structure in Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen, it is not feasible for Eevee to develop into Espeon or Umbreon in those games. Because neither Johto nor Kanto contains a Moss Rock or an Ice Rock, it is also impossible for it to develop into Leafeon or Glaceon in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver.
- Although Eevee may be obtained before the Pokémon League in Pokémon Black 2 and White 2, it cannot develop into Leafeon or Glaceon until after entering the Pokémon Hall of Fame. This is despite the fact that Eevee can be obtained before the Pokémon League. This is due to the fact that Twist Mountain and Pinwheel Forest are inaccessible prior to this point in time.
- Although several Pokémon underwent Mega Evolutions, only Eevee from the previous generations acquired a new evolution in Generation VI Pokémon games.
- Within the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series, four of Eevee’s evolved forms are shown to have developed in an unusual manner (Espeon, Umbreon, Leafeon, and Glaceon).
- Eevee may evolve into its many forms in the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon games by utilizing a Sun Ribbon or Lunar Ribbon with at least one star of IQ, a Mossy Rock, or a Frozen Rock. These items must also be used in conjunction with one another.
- Although it is possible to catch all of Eevee’s evolved forms up to the third generation in Pokémon Ranger, the base form of Eevee itself is absolutely unobtainable in this game. This aspect of the game was altered in Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia.
- In spite of the fact that May, Gary, and Sakura each owned an Eevee that eventually evolved, the evolution of Eevee was never depicted onscreen in the anime until the episode Last Call — First Round!, when Ursula evolved her two Eevee into Flareon and Vaporeon during a Contest appeal. This event took place over thirteen years into the anime’s run.
- Eevee has made an appearance in the teams of most of the key protagonists during the course of the anime, with May, Serena, and Lana each having their own Eevee.
- Eevee is now the only Pokémon species in the anime to have been owned by more than two separate major protagonists, making it a unique distinction in the franchise.
- With a total of nine trademark moves, Eevee has more than any other Pokémon in the Pokémon franchise.
- Eevee is the sole Pokémon that was already in existence when the gender distinction was introduced in Generation IV.
