Pokemon GO: Each of Eevee's evolutions has various strengths and weaknesses


Currently, Eevee can evolve into the following Pocket Monsters in Pokemon GO:

  • Flareon
  • Vaporeon
  • Jolteon
  • Espeon
  • Umbreon
  • Leafeon
  • Glaceon
  • Sylveon

While "best" overall is hard to define when it comes to Eevee's evolutions, some certainly stand out from the rest when it comes to stats. On the other hand, some of the Pokemon's evolutions are better off in certain battle scenarios than others.

Umbreon is a great Eevee evolution when it comes to Stamina and Defense stats, but the Pokemon lacks heavily in the Attack category. Glaceon, as an Ice-type, demolishes certain Pokemon against whom it has built-in resistance.

If one had to choose the best Eevee evolution in August 2021 based on stats, it would likely be Espeon because it has the highest CP and highest Attack stat.

However, a case could be made for several of Eevee's other evolutions. Sylveon, the most recently added Eevee evolution in Pokemon GO, makes for a close second place. As a decently strong Fairy-type, Sylveon can come in handy when players try to counter certain types in battle leagues.

Overall, the best Eevee evolution in Pokemon GO truly depends on what a player wants from his Pokemon. Each of this Pokemon's evolutions has the potential to serve multiple purposes. Due to different battle scenarios, Eevee's diverse options in evolution could prove to be extremely handy.
