Jolteon (Japanese: サンダース Thunders) is an Electric-type Pokémon.

It evolves from Eevee when exposed to a Thunderstone. It is one of Eevee's final forms, the others being Vaporeon, Flareon, Espeon, Umbreon, Leafeon, Glaceon, and Sylveon.

Biology

Physiology

Jolteon is a dog-like Pokémon with a very short tail, surrounded by a fringe of spikes on its rear. It has four slender legs, each with a three-toed foot and a pink paw pad. It has large, pointed ears with black insides. Jolteon is covered in yellow fur, and has a white, spiky collar. It can make its fur sharp like needles; this is similar to Glaceon, which also has fur that can be made sharp. Jolteon has dark, fox-like, black eyes.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Jolteon can use the same attacks that Eevee can use, with the addition of the ability to wield electrical attacks, as well as Double Kick and Pin Missile. In order to gather power for electric attacks, it accumulates negative ions in the atmosphere, charges power when its mood changes, or amplifies the weak electric charge of its cells with the static electricity of its electrically-charged needle fur. As a fully evolved Pokémon, Jolteon can learn Hyper Beam and Giga Impact.

Behavior

Jolteon are sensitive Pokémon and easily become sad or angry. Every time its mood changes, it charges power. If startled or angered, it can shoot out bristles that are sharp enough to pierce opponents. Every hair on its body starts to stand sharply on end if it becomes charged with electricity, and the negatively charged ions in its fur create a constant sparking noise. Its fur also stands on end if it is angry or startled.

Habitat

Jolteon usually are found near power plants. Due to the need of a Thunderstone to evolve from Eevee, not many are found. However, because it's an Eeveelution, it can adapt almost anywhere.

Trivia

  • Jolteon is tied with Glaceon as the shortest Eeveelution.
  • Jolteon has the highest Speed base stat of the Eeveelutions with a base speed of 130.
  • Jolteon is the only Eeveelution without an obvious tail. However, in the The Electric Tale of Pikachu manga, it is shown to have a stubby tail under its spikes. The tail is absent from its Generation V backsprite, however.
  • Jolteon shares the same species name with Electrike. They are both known as Lightning Pokémon.
  • Jolteon and Zapdos's Japanese names are almost exactly the same as each others', with a final s being the only difference.

Origin

Its physical anatomy seems to be primarily based on a Herding dog or possibly a fennec fox, with several traits of coyotes. It is also feline-like; its extremely high speed resembles that of a cheetah's. It may also be inspired by the raiju, a beast from Japanese mythology whose body is made of thunder, and may take the form of a cat.

Name origin

Jolteon is a combination of jolt and eon (an immeasurably long period of time, possibly referring to how long evolution takes naturally). Eon is a suffix all Eevee evolutions share and was Eevee's English prototype name.

Thunders is literally thunders (present tense verb of to thunder).
