The Eevee brothers are four Pokémon Trainers from the Pokémon anime, three of which whose signature Pokémon are the Eeveelutions (that existed at the time). They make their appearance in The Battling Eevee Brothers.

Rainer, Sparky, and Pyro appear to be the same age, possibly triplets. Mikey is noticeably younger than the other three brothers.

In the manga

In The Electric Tale of Pikachu manga

Sparky, Pyro, and Rainer

Rainer, Pyro, and Sparky—along with Mikey—appear in the manga series The Electric Tale of Pikachu, which is based on the anime.

In the chapter To Evolve or Not to Evolve, That is the Question!, Rainer, Pyro, and Sparky are members of a fellowship named the Knights of the E Stone. To join, members are required to own at least one Pokémon which was evolved by means of an evolutionary stone. Joining The Knights of The E Stone is a family tradition which the brothers have upheld, and they pressure Mikey to evolve his Eevee so that he may join, too.

With Ash's help, Mikey's Eevee and Ash's Pikachu defeat all three brothers to earn Mikey the right to join the fellowship without evolving his Eevee.

The brothers are shown to have a playful side in the manga as well, teasing Mikey about Misty being his "girlfriend" and disappearing in a cloud of smoke when they leave the room.

Trivia

  • Sparky has the same voice actor in both English and Japanese as Chopper, and Rainer has the same voice actor in both English and Japanese as both Scuz and Pete Pebbleman.
  • The Eevee brothers have no representation in their family of the Eeveelutions debuting after Generation I. There was originally fanon speculation that something might be done to correct this, but like many characters of the day, the Eevee brothers have made no reappearance in the Pokémon anime since their debut episode.
  • This was not the only group of siblings training Eeveelutions to appear on the Pokémon anime. When Ash and his friends went to Johto, they met the Kimono Sisters who, like their counterparts in Pokémon Gold and Silver, each trained one of the five evolutions. Unlike the Eevee brothers, though, they had no representation in their family of Eevee itself, unless one counts Sakura's Eevee, which later evolved into Espeon.
  • The name Sparky was used again in the anime as the name of Ritchie's Pikachu.
  • Oddly, at the time of the episode, Ash, Misty, and Brock each had a Pokémon with them that could evolve via one of the evolutionary stones that are used by Eevee to evolve. Pikachu evolves with the Thunderstone, Vulpix evolves with the Fire Stone, and Staryu evolves with a Water Stone. Pyro and Sparky offer a Fire Stone to Brock and a Thunderstone to Ash in hopes that they will evolve their Pokémon, but Rainer never offers a Water Stone to Misty, most likely because she already has a Starmie.
