Umbreon (Japanese: ブラッキー Blacky) is a Template:Type2 Pokémon.

It evolves from Eevee by Happiness during the night or when around a Moon Shard.

Biology

Physiology

Umbreon is the Pokémon that Eevee evolves into when it has gained a complete trust of its trainer at night. It has a black body with a pair of crimson eyes and yellow bands on its ears and tail. Umbreon's forehead and legs have yellow rings on them.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Umbreon can Template:M2 whenever it gets agitated. As a Template:Type2 Pokémon, Umbreon can learn several moves with various disruptive effects, such as Taunt or Snatch. Despite its appearance, Umbreon is a Pokémon of strong endurance. Since Umbreon is a fully evolved Pokémon, it can learn Hyper Beam and Giga Impact.

Behavior

Umbreon stalks prey silently at night time. As it awaits its victims approach the yellow rings on its body begin to glow.

Habitat

Umbreon tend to be found in dark areas such as thick forests, or, more commonly, under the care of people.

Trivia

  • Umbreon is tied with Vaporeon and Leafeon for the tallest Eevee evolution.
  • Although it is often mentioned that it is able to spray poison, Umbreon cannot actually learn Template:Type2 moves by leveling up.
    • In fact, the only Poison-type move Umbreon can learn is Toxic, which nearly every Pokémon can learn through TM06.
  • Umbreon was the first and only pure Template:Type2 until the introduction of Poochyena, Mightyena, and Absol in Generation III.
  • Umbreon is the first Template:Type2 Pokémon in National Pokédex order, and the last Pokémon in National Pokédex order to not share a type with a Pokémon of a lower number.
  • Umbreon portrays the closest stat resemblance to Cresselia, having very high Defense, Special Defense, and HP stats, with average Attack, Special Attack, and Speed. Coincidentally, they are both related to the moon.
  • Umbreon is the only non-Template:Type2 Pokémon with the ability Synchronize.
  • Umbreon is one of two Pokémon than can be obtained via more than one evolution method in the main series of games. The other one is Umbreon's counterpart, Espeon.

Origin

Its physical traits are similar to foxes.

Name origin

Umbreon's name is derived from umbra, Latin for shadow and ghost. Eon was Eevee's prototype name, the Pokémon from which Umbreon evolves.

Its Japanese name may simply refer to the color of its coat.

In other languages

  • German: Nachtara - From Nacht (night). Ends with -a like every Eeveelution in German.
  • French: Noctali - From nocturne (nocturnal). Ends with -li like every Eeveelution in French.
  • Korean: 블래키 Beullaeki
