Espeon (Japanese: エーフィ Eifie) is a Template:Type2 Pokémon.

It evolves from Eevee via Happiness during the day, or when around a Sun Shard.

Biology

Espeon is the result of an Eevee trusting a Pokémon Trainer very much, then being leveled up during the day.

Physiology

Resembling a cat, it has lavender fur, large ears with dark purple or blue ear insides and long tufts of fur below them, a red gem on its forehead and a pair of pupiless eyes with white irises and purple scleras. Its tail, which is forked a bit like a Buizel's, helps it to foresee possible futures. Its catlike appearance and red gem have caused some to mistake it for a relative of Persian, however, this gem merely augments its psychic powers.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Espeon has developed Psychic powers due to a combination of great loyalty to its trainer and sunlight, with several signature special abilities attributable to its fine, sensitive fur. Thus very fine fur, which has the look and feel of velvet, is so sensitive, that as air currents pass through it, Espeon is able to sense things such as minute shifts in the air, and predict changes in the weather or the opponent's next move. Like most fully evolved Pokémon, Espeon can learn Hyper Beam or Giga Impact. One would also assume that Espeon can learn Power Gem due to being a gem-bearing Pokémon, but it cannot. Connecting with its affinity to sunlight, it is able to learn the healing move Morning Sun.

Behavior

Espeon are very loyal to their trainers and will protect them from harm. They enjoy basking in full sunlight. The tip of its forked tail quivers when it is predicting its opponent's next move.

Habitat

Espeon are usually found in areas that receive a lot of light, or, more commonly under the care of people.

Trivia

  • Espeon, Gengar, and Latios all share the same 130 in Special Attack and 110 in Speed.
  • Espeon is not obtainable in FireRed and LeafGreen Versions due to the lack of a time system. In order to be obtained and added to the Pokédex in these versions, an Eevee must be traded to Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald Versions, evolved there, and then traded back, or else traded from Pokémon Colosseum or Pokémon XD.
  • Espeon shares the same species name with Sunflora and Ulgamoth. They are both known as Sun Pokémon.
  • Espeon is the only Eeveelution not to have a type advantage against another.
  • Despite the "ESP" in its name being short for extra-sensory perception, Espeon cannot learn the move Extrasensory.
  • Espeon and Umbreon are the only Starter Pokémon to be received fully evolved. It also, along with Umbreon, is the only Pokémon to be received as a starter Pokémon as well as another.
  • Despite its HeartGold and SoulSilver Pokédex entries, Espeon does not have the Forewarn ability.

Origin

It appears to be based on legend of the nekomata, also known as bake-neko. Nekomata are mysterious two-tailed goblin cats. They are said to be very intelligent and possess incredible powers. It also resembles a carbuncle, a Latin-American mythological beast which had a jewel on its forehead. Its forked tail may also be related to its ability to see the different, forking paths of fate. It has long caracal-like ears and an elegant feline body. In the anime, as well as games like Mystery Dungeon and Poképark Wii, Espeon displays very catlike behavior, such as curling up to sleep, rubbing, licking itself, high jumping and climbing skills, and mewing. It may also be based on a sphynx cat, a breed of hairless cat with large ears and pink skin, although Espeon's pink coloration comes from its fur as oppose to its skin. It also bears some physical resemblance to fennec foxes

Name origin

Espeon's name is derived from ESP, or extra-sensory perception, a branch of psychic abilities. The -eon suffix, common to all Eevee evolutions, comes from Eevee's prototype English name and possibly refers to the ending suffix of evolution itself. Espeon's Japanese name is derived from a combination of エスパー esupaa, lit. ESPer or a psychic, and フィール fiiru, the word "feel" in English, because of its extraordinary sensory abilities. Some think that the Japanese name might come from the fact that its forked tail looks similar to a capital letter "F." However, Espeon's forked tail is based on the legend of the nekomata which is just a splitting of one tail and has nothing to do with the letter "F."

In other languages

  • German: Psiana - From psychic. Ends with -a like every Eeveelution in German.
  • French: Mentali - From mental. Ends with -li like every Eeveelution in French.
  • Korean: 에브이 Ebeui
  • Chinese (Taiwan): 太陽精靈 Tài Yáng Jīng Líng - Literally means "Sun Spirit". Ends with -精靈(spirit) like every Eeveelution in Chinese.
