Pokémon: Eevee & Friends (Japanese: ピカチュウとイーブイ☆フレンズ Pikachu and Eievui Friends) is the 25th Pikachu short of the Pokémon anime. It debuted alongside Genesect and the Legend Awakened and was made available for the English audience starting on December 6, 2013 through Pokémon TV on the official Pokémon website.
The narration starts off with Pikachu happily running through the grassy fields along with Axew, Oshawott, and Pansage. Eventually, they tumble into a field full of pink flowers in a heap after crashing into each other and falling down a hill. Upon getting up, they hear a Pokemon's voice and decide to split up and find it. After it reveals itself to Pikachu and the others (with Oshawott immediately falling in love with it), the narrator reveals the Pokemon to be Sylveon who leaps away motioning them to follow.
As they follow the Intertwining Pokemon upwards on a trail, Sylveon presents to them its house at their destination. The narrator mentions that Sylveon is having a sleepover party, which Pikachu and the others have been invited to. Sylveon then calls out to Eevee, who excitedly comes out to greet them but ends up crashing into Axew. They both shrug it off however, happily playing with each other.
As Eevee then properly greets the other three, the affectionate Jolteon suddenly shows up and hugs Oshawott, playfully shocking him while doing so. As Axew and Eevee decide to play together by running around (along with Jolteon), an annoyed Oshawott trails after them into the house. Pikachu, Sylveon, and Pansage follow after as well.
The three run up into the artistic Glaceon's room, who watches the events from atop her ice bed. As the other three Pokemon arrive into her room, they find Oshawott chasing the three playful pokemon around while breaking Glaceon's sculptures. An annoyed Glaceon eventually freezes Oshawott into a block using Ice Shard, who then slides out of the room down the entrance. He breaks out of the ice and continues his chase, causing the other three to chase after them.
Outside, they arrive in the relaxed Leafeon's room, whom lays in a small bed hanging from the one of the large tree's branches. As Oshawott disturbs the tree in order to get to Jolteon, Eevee, and Axew, he also unintentionally disturbs Leafeon. Pikachu, Sylveon, and Pansage look on nervously as the Water-type Pokemon continues. Having enough, she unleashes Magical Leaf at Oshawott, covering him with leaves.
The chase continues, with Axew being the first out of Leafeon's room and having a run in with an assuming frightening creature, which causes the Dragon-type Pokemon to run away in fear. As he runs past the other two mischievous Pokemon who are confused by his acts, he then runs away from Oshawott (who is still covered in leaves) along with Jolteon and Eevee, who also run away in fear. The creature, who turns out to be the mysterious Umbreon, exits his room and politely directs Pikachu and the others to where everyone else had run off.
They eventually end up in the shy Flareon's room, who nervously begins to raise the temperature up after a look from the leaf covered Oshawott. As Pikachu's group arrive, they notice the heat building up, so much that the leaves on Oshawott begin to set on fire. The Water Pokemon runs up in alarm and out of Flareon's room along with everyone else; to the relief of the shy Pokemon, and into a stream of water which relieves Oshawott from the burning leaves. Everyone then proceeds to enjoy the water slide from there on out.
The narration introduces the vain Espeon, who admires herself from the lake's mirrored image of herself. The group then exits the water slide using a cave entrance, and fall down into the lake with a big splash. Espeon counters the splash using Psychic, only allowing one drop on her.
While in the lake, they discover Vaporeon, who makes an entrance out of the water. This concludes the introduction of all the Eeveelutions living along with Sylveon.
Meanwhile, Meowth and Wobbuffet arrive with ingredients for the feast. After spotting Pikachu and the others, who had arrived unbeknownst to him, he complains to Vaporeon about there not being enough food for everyone. However, he eventually complies after a worried Leafeon, Espeon, and Glaceon enter the scene (as he is infatuated with them), reassuring them that he would make enough, to their delight. In the kitchen, Meowth, along with Wobbuffet, prepare the feast. As Meowth boasts about his cooking skills, the dough he had been preparing drops on him to his dismay as Wobbuffet exclaims as usual.
Finished, the feast is set out for the rest of the Pokemon, who happily begin eating after Vaporeon officially begins the party. They then proceed to do entertainment beginning with Leafeon, Espeon, and Glaceon, who preforms a dance routine. Meanwhile, the shy Flareon opens up to Eevee and Axew, and joins them in their playful chase. The show continues with Oshawott demonstrating his water technique in a dazzling way, exciting the others. Sylveon, whom Pikachu asks what was wrong, wonders where Umbreon is. As it turns out, Umbreon had its own agenda and went out to signal five other mysterious Pokemon.
Back with the other Pokemon, Pansage mimics Panpour and Pansear in his act, impressing the audience. Meowth, not wanting to be outdone by Pansage and wanting to impress Espeon and the others, dresses up as Leafeon while Wobbuffet dresses as Glaceon for their performance. The audience is not pleased, however, especially Leafeon and Glaceon, who both simultaneously unleash attacks and send the two blasting off.
Afterwards, Umbreon finally shows up to the party, to the relief of Sylveon and the confusion of Pikachu. It uses Psychic to carry off three watermelons from the food table to the bemusement of the others and trots off, causing Sylveon, Pikachu and the others to follow along. They trail Umbreon up to a rocky cliff where a Weavile, Gible, Gothita, Gothorita, and Gothitelle reside, setting down the watermelons to the side. Each of Umbreon's friends introduce themselves to Pikachu and the others, who watch in curiosity and surprise. Arriving back from the blast off, Meowth and Wobbuffet mistakenly assume Pikachu and the others are having a stand off with Umbreon and his friends, and initiate attacks to their alarm. Sylveon reacts quickly and uses Fairy Wind to send the two blasting off once more, to their dismay and confusion.
After that, Umbreon directs Gothitelle to use its special powers, and shows everyone the far away stars in space to the amazement of the others. Umbreon then levitates the watermelons once more, and motions Weavile to cut them using Fury Swipes. Umbreon then proceeds to levitate each slice to the others, to their delight. The narration reveals that Umbreon and his friends were helping out with the rest of the party preparations as Umbreon's surprise present.
Sylveon uses Misty Terrain, further making the scenery spectacular, much to the enjoyment of the others. Gothita and Gothorita then use Energy Ball and Psybeam respectively to add onto the effects, changing the sky color to a kaleidoscopic blue. Umbreon and Weavile then follow suit with Shadow Ball and Hidden Power respectively to change the color to purple. Meanwhile, Meowth and Wobbuffet arrive once more to the cliff and admire the scenery, noting that Gothitelle and the other four weren't bad Pokemon at all, with Wobbuffet agreeing. Glaceon and Vaporeon the use Water Gun and Ice Beam, creating solid bubbles while Umbreon uses Psychic to hold them in place as Sylveon proceeds to jump elegantly onto each of them to Pikachu's amazement and Oshawott's attraction, while its extended feelers, which shine mystically, sway in a beautiful way with her. She then affectionately shows her gratitude to Umbreon and his friends, then proceeds to use her feelers to do more tricks. Umbreon then gives Gible a signal and he uses Draco Meteor, which, after another mystifying view of outer space, ends the show with a shimmering finale to the satisfaction of everyone, who exclaim in amazement to one another.
Meowth apologizes to Umbreon's friends for thinking they were up to no good, then treats everyone to another feast. With their day finally coming to an end, they gather in a room together to rest. Sylveon and Pikachu each give each other a smile before going to sleep themselves. After Jolteon gives an unconscious shock to the nearby Oshawott (who continues to sleep anyway), the story ends off with the narrator saying everyone will play again tomorrow and the credits begin, ending off Pikachu and Sylveon's adventure for the day.
During the credits, it is seen that they continue the next day with more fun filled activities.
