Eevee Pokémon

Last Modified May 26, 2021 07:40 GMT

Eevee is a Normal-type Pokémon, which is one of the eighteen Pokémon elemental types that debuted in Generation I. It's popular for being the Pokémon with the highest number of evolution possibilities (8), largely due to its unstable genetic makeup. It is also the game mascot and starter Pokémon in Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee!


Eevee was created by Ken Sugimori, it first appeared in the video games Pokémon Red and Blue and later in various merchandise, spin-off titles, and animated and printed adaptations of the franchise.

Appearance of Eevee


Appearance of Eevee


Eevee is a mammalian tiny fox-like creature with brown fur. It has a small black triangular nose. It has a ream-colored furry collar around its neck and a short, bushy tail with a creamy tip. Eevee has round deep-brown eyes and long rabbit-like ears with dark brown interiors. It has short, thin legs with three small toes and a pink paw pad on each foot. Its body grows in size as it evolves into a Gigantamax Eevee. With many triangular furs pointed straight up, the fur collar becomes longer and fluffier. Furthermore, its right ear, in the Gigantamax version, is surrounded by three red clouds in the shape of a circle.


Behavior of Eevee


Eevee’s are rarely seen in the wild and are often found in cities and villages, but they are canonically capable of living almost anywhere due to their ability to evolve to suit their environments. Owing to the fur being fluffier and more luxurious in its Gigantamax form, any enemies trapped in it will lose their desire to fight due to its appeal.

Behavior of Eevee


It becomes even more rambunctious as a result of Gigantamaxing, desiring to play with its opponent and sometimes unconsciously crushing them with its size. Moreover, it is also the only Pokémon considered to be capable of using Z-Move Extreme Evoboost and the unique G-Max Move G-Max Cuddle in its Gigantamax version.


Strengths and Weaknesses of Eevee


Being a normal-type Pokémon, it has no apparent strengths except that it receives no damage from ghost-type attacks; however, it also deals no damage when attacking ghost-type Pokémon. As for its weaknesses, it does half the normal damage when attacking rock or steel type Pokémon. In contrast, it receives double the normal damage from fighting-type attacks.


Shiny Eevee


The shiny Eevee is essentially the same color as the usual Eevee, but with a more subdued appearance. The colors have been washed out, giving it a more discreet appearance. Dedicated players want to develop the shiny variants of Eevee in addition to the regular evolutions. If you want to evolve shiny Eeevees, make sure their stats are maxed out so you can get the most powerful versions possible. When you evolve a shiny Eevee, you'll get a shiny evolved version. For example, a shiny Eevee can be evolved into a shiny Flareon or a shiny Leafeon. The odds to find a shiny Eevee in Pokémon Go are 1 to 25, so you are going to have to catch a lot to find the Shiny Eevee.


Pokémon Lets Go Eevee


Eevee is the game mascot and starter Pokémon in Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee! This game is a 2018 remake of the 1998 Game Boy Color role-playing video game Pokémon Yellow. It was developed by Game Freak for the Nintendo Switch. Pokémon Let's Go, Eevee! is set in the Kanto region and includes the original 151 Pokémon in addition to their respective Mega Evolved forms. However, the setting and story remain largely the same as Pokémon Yellow with the eight Gym Leaders and the members of the Elite Four, as well as the antagonist Team Rocket, including Jessie, James, and Meowth from the anime series making their appearance in-game.


Pokémon Let's Go, Eevee! also feature common elements of the main series, such as battling non-player characters Pokémon Trainers and Gym Leaders with caught Pokémon creatures. The player begins Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee! with a rare Eevee known as a Partner Eevee with purple eyes and a brighter hue of fur which distinguishes it from its counterpart. It has higher base stats and access to moves not available to regular Eevee.


Evolving Eevee


Evolving Eevee


Eevee's genetic makeup is said to be irregularly shaped, allowing it to evolve into the different Pokémon:


  1. Vaporeon when exposed to a Water Stone.
  2. Jolteon when exposed to a Thunder Stone.
  3. Flareon when exposed to a Fire Stone.
  4. Espeon when leveled up with high friendship during the daytime.
  5. Umbreon when leveled up with high friendship during the nighttime
  6. Leafeon when leveled up near a Moss Rock or when exposed to a Leaf Stone.
  7. Glaceon when leveled up near an Ice Rock or when exposed to an Ice Stone.
  8. Sylveon when leveled up with a Fairy-type move and either two levels of Affection or high friendship.


For Pokémon GO players evolving Eevee's forms for the first time, the road is significantly easier than those who have already evolved Eevee before. The process for evolving Eevee is fairly simple. All that is needed is to change the player's Eevee's nickname to one of the following nicknames before using candy to start the evolution.

  1. Flareon - Pyro
  2. Jolteon - Sparky
  3. Vaporeon - Rainer
  4. Espeon - Sakura
  5. Umbreon - Tamao
  6. Leafeon - Linnea
  7. Glaceon - Rea
  8. Sylveon – Kira

Most Pokémon GO players will have already evolved Eevee at least once, rendering the nickname trick ineffective. For these players, they'll need to rely on the traditional mechanics for evolving Eevee.

Best Moveset


Eevee isn’t most players' go-to Pokemon in a battle due to its limited abilities and sub-par stats. However, some of its moves are still effective. First of all is Quick Attack which, apart from inflicting damage, has a priority of +1, so it is used before all moves that do not have increased priority. It allows the user to gain an advantage by striking first. However, If both Pokémon use this, the one with higher Speed attacks first. Last Resort has an incredible power of 140, but this move can be used only after the user has used all the other moves it knows in the battle. Using this move earlier will render it ineffective.


At a slightly lower power is the Double Edge. This move is essentially a charging tackle attack, but with an added caveat that half of the damage it inflicts recoils to hurt the attacker. Lastly, Swift inflicts damage and bypasses accuracy checks, unless the target is in the semi-invulnerable turn of a move. In battles featuring multiple Pokémon Swift hits opposing adjacent Pokémon.

How to catch Eevee in Pokémon Go?

Eevee is a normal-type Pokémon, which means it can spawn almost anywhere, unlike fire and electric forms, which usually spawn near fire stations and power plants. To catch Eevee in Pokemon Go, try finding clusters of Pokestops and hang out near them since they spawn there very frequently. Lures will be of great help in drawing in any Eevees that are in the area. As mentioned earlier, no need to look for water or any other special geography since it is a common spawn for a lot of people.

FAQs


Q. Why is Eevee so rare?


Eevee is vulnerable to harmful mutations and birth defects, which makes it a rare find in the wild.

Q. Is Eevee a good Pokémon?


Its spread is comparatively small, so it is unlikely to win several fights on its own. Eevee's exclusive Z-Move is what makes it feasible for competitive play as it can become a decent powerhouse by easily doubling all of its stats except HP.

Q. What is the strongest Eevee evolution?


Vaporeon has the highest HP of all of the Eevee evolutions, making it the best evolution in terms of stats. As one would expect from a water-type Pokémon, it is vulnerable to grass and electric forms; while, being resilient to steel, fire, water, and ice Pokémon.
