Eevee Evolutions Pokémon GO

You may have encountered them as raid bosses or in the wild but Eevee and its evolutions have a genetic structure that is said to be: not stable. It can thus transform itself according to the environment in which it finds itself. Eevee and its eight evolutions can be found in all video games, animated series, cards, several films and various derived products (plush, figurine, lego, …).

The Game Freak team founded in Tokyo in 1989 imagined Eevee, and its evolutions were designed by Ken Sugimori. It is in 1996 that Eevee makes its appearance as well as its first three evolutions. They can be found in two video games: Pokémon Green and Pokémon Red. 20 years later, those same three evolutions arrived in Pokémon GO.

In fact, in Pokémon GO, eeveelutions came with its generation starting with Vaporeon, Jolteo and Flareon who were there from the start of Niantic’s game Pokémon GO, in 2016.

Eevee can only evolve once, but there are eight possible evolutions because each type is different. In the first generation of video games, Eevee, Jolteon, Flareon and Vaporeon appear. Umbreon and Espeon appear in the second generation and Glaceon and Leafeon in the fourth. Sylveon will only appear in the sixth generation which is not in Pokémon GO yet.

These Pokémon are found in the Pokédex, you can visit our Pokedex for Pokemon GO to learn more about all the other Pokemon. Eevee and its evolutions are number 133, 134, 135, 136, 196, 197, 470, 471 and 700 in the Pokédex. In 2018, the Pokémon Let’s Go Eevee game for Nintendo Switch is released and Eevee is the mascot where he evolves thanks to various stones or radiation.

Eevee measures around 15 inch or 30 cm and weighs around 14 pounds or 6.5 kg. It can be male or female. This mammalian Pokémon, quadruped and cuddly is inspired by the Japanese mythology Bake Danuki where species of canids with magical powers evolve.

Eevee is the first-generation Pokémon with the highest evolutionary capacity of any Pokémon, with a total of eight to its credit. It is mammalian, quadruped, canine (that sometimes looks more like a cat than a dog 🐈) and covered with brown and beige fur on its collar. It has a large tail and small legs with three toes, each with a pink pad. Its face has a small black nose, large brown eyes and pointed ears.

Eevee and its evolutions are nine species of Pokémon named :

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

When Vaporeon is Shiny, its body is pink tending to purple. Its back and the top of its head become dark purple, the collar becomes white and the fins yellow. Vaporeon is able to heal certain alterations of status when it rains and does not suffer any damage when he is hit by a water capacity. Instead, it regains PVs.

Inspired by the Bakeneko which is a cat with supernatural powers and Nekomata which is a legendary ghost also resembling a cat which are two beings of Japanese folklore, Espeon is endowed with supernatural powers 🔮. The orb placed on his forehead also reminds us of the Carbuncle who is a creature from the Book of Imaginary Beings and comes from Latin American mythology.

To get all Eevee’s evolutions, you have to rename them, but be careful, there are a few caveats.
