Pokémon of the Week: Eevee

It’d be great if you followed the blog on Twitter and Facebook, and if you became a follower on WordPress. It’d be wonderful if you told your friends about us too!

Here are the previous ‘Pokémon of the Week’ winners!

I apologize for not posting ‘Pokémon of the Week’ last week. Just been busy with life and all of its hazards.

This week’s ‘Pokémon of the Week’ is Eevee, which was suggested by mk109 (check out their blog!).

Eevee is the Evolution Pokémon; apropos.

Eevee is a unique Pokémon for eight reasons, but we’ll get to that in a minute.  Eevee is a normal type Pokémon, which means it has a weakness to fighting type moves, and an immunity to ghost type moves. It can learn a slew of normal type moves, which are not that great of moves. Even Eevee’s egg moves are subpar at best moves, but the moves Eevee can use are not important to Eevee at all. Eevee is a cute little Pokémon that would make a tremendous pet in the Pokémon universe or ours.

What is unique about Eevee, other than the aforementioned eight reasons, is that (up until Generation Five) you could not catch an Eevee in the wild – Castelia Park Black 2 & White 2. Eevee can normally only be ‘found’ as a gift, bought at the game corner in Gold and Silver (and their remakes), or bred from Eevee (or its evolutions). In Generation six, Eevee can be found in the wild on route 10. I made sure to snag one before I moved on in the game!

Here is a brief description of Eevee from Bulbapedia:

Eevee is a mammalian, quadruped creature with primarily brown fur. The tip of its bushy tail and its large furry collar are cream-colored. It has short, slender legs with three small toes and a pink paw pad on each foot. Eevee has brown eyes, long pointed ears, and a small black nose. This Pokémon is rarely found in the wild, and is mostly only found in cities and towns. However, Eevee is said to have an irregularly shaped genetic structure that allows it to adapt to many different kinds of environments. Eventually, Eevee may evolve to better suit its surroundings. According toPokémon Mystery Dungeon, Eevee has a naive personality. This means that it is childlike, playful, and friendly.

‘Eevee may evolve to better suit its surroundings.’ Hmm. Guess I should not hold it off any longer considering it is the most important part of Eevee. Eevee can evolve into eight different Pokémon, by far more than any other Pokémon. Each evolution is unique as well. Here are Eevee’s eight possible evolutions and how it evolves into that particular Pokémon (from Bulbapedia):

  • Vaporeon when exposed to a Water Stone.
  • Jolteon when exposed to a Thunder Stone.
  • Flareon when exposed to a Fire Stone.
  • Espeon when leveled up with high friendship during the daytime, includingmorning (Generation II onward, excludes areas with a Moss Rock or Ice Rock), or when leveled up with a Sun Shard in the Bag.
  • Umbreon when leveled up with high friendship during the nighttime (Generation IIonward, excludes areas with a Moss Rock or Ice Rock), or when leveled up with a Moon Shard in the Bag.
  • Leafeon when leveled up near a Moss Rock (Generation IV onward).
  • Glaceon when leveled up near an Ice Rock (Generation IV onward).
  • Sylveon when leveled up with a Fairy-type move and 2 Affection hearts inPokémon-Amie (Generation VI onward, excludes areas with a Moss Rock or Ice Rock).

Each evolution is a single type , and the only types remaining to become an ‘Eeveelution’ are:

  • Fighting
  • Flying
  • Poison
  • Ground
  • Rock
  • Bug
  • Ghost
  • Steel
  • Dragon
  • And technically an Eeveelution that is Normal (think of just a bigger Eevee if this were to happen)
  • It is not a type, but there is not a ‘Mega Evolution’ of Eevee (or any of its evolutions)

With the reveal of Sylveon (fairy type), many Pokémon fans speculated that there would be another new Eeveelution that would be paired with Sylveon since Eeveelutions (aside from the original three) came in pairs. Alas, Sylveon is the only Eeveelution in Generation Six and is the only new evolution for a previous generation Pokémon!

As usual I include artwork from deviantArt and remember it is all their credit. This week its The-pink-vodka (CHECK OUT THEIR PAGE!) with an adorable painting of Eevee and Pikachu!

Thanks for reading! I appreciate it. Tell all your Pokémon loving friends!

Speculation On Next Pokémon Game (Already!)

It is almost certain that Game Freak will give us all another game involving the Kalos region. Many believe it will be simply ‘Pokémon Z’ with the legendary represented by Z on the cover, or that it will be X2 and Y2 with the focus on an altered legendary (like Kyurem in B2/W2). Open and shut case, right?

Not so fast my friend.

Apparently Marriland, believes that Game Freak will be giving us an entirely new region in the next game (that would be a sequel to X/Y) already! What?! Madness. But he brings up pretty good, although most are flimsy, points in the below video. Watch it and tell me what you think.


I think the berry part is interesting, but it could be hinting at a new ‘Dream World’ type device. I do hope there are more than 69 new Pokémon (a new legendary trio has been pretty much confirmed, by the way), or at least more mega evolutions.

What do you think?

PokéFriday: Every NFL Team’s Logo As A Pokémon

I came across a thread on reddit yesterday and as soon as I saw the thread title I knew I would post it here on Friday.

It’s quite interesting if you’re a fan of the Pokémon series AND the NFL.  Some of the choices were ‘meh’, while some choices were great and unexpected choices.  Here are several of my personal favorites:

Pokémon of the Week (For Last Friday): Litleo!

Here are the previous ‘Pokémon of the Week.’

Many of you reading this that have not been keeping up with the series may be asking yourself, “Who is Litleo?”

Well, Litleo is a sixth generation Pokémon and looks like this:

Litleo, Pokémon, Sixth Generation

Look at this little cutie!

This is the first Pokémon that appears to be a lion, or mostly a lion, unless you believe that the Shinx line is also based off lions.  I’d say Litleo and it’s future evolution(s), which hasn’t been revealed yet, are more lion than Shinx and it’s evolution line.

There is very little known about Litleo, but here are some known facts about it:

  • It has the unusual typing of Fire/Normal.
  • There appears to be no gender differences.
  • It is weak to ground, rock, water, and fighting type moves.
  • It is immune to ghost type moves because of it’s secondary typing of normal.

That is essentially all that is known about Litleo, but here is some fan speculation.

  • Many believe Litleo will evolve (whether straight into, or a 3-stage line) into a Pokémon based off a Manticore.
  • If it does evolve into said Manticore, it will be Fire/Poison.
  • Fire/Poison would be a unique typing.

As usual here is a deviantArt drawing of The Pokémon of the Week (All credit goes to kore7hatsumine):

A very cute picture of Litleo with another generation six Pokémon, Fletchling.

What do you think of Litleo?  Will it evolve into a Manticore like Pokémon, or is it just extreme fan speculation? Has sixth generation done enough in your eyes for new typings?

Let me know in the comments.
