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, such as the ability to predict its opponents' movements by reading the air currents. 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.

Behavior

Espeon are very loyal to their trainers and will protect them from harm. They enjoy basking in full sunlight.

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 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 and then traded back, or traded from Pokémon Colosseum or from Pokémon XD.
  • Espeon shares the same species name with Sunflora. They are both known as Sun Pokémon.
  • Espeon is one of two Pokémon that can be obtained via more than one evolution method. The other one is Espeon's counterpart, Umbreon.
  • Oddly, Espeon can learn Zap Cannon in earlier generations, but cannot learn weaker Template:Type2 moves.
  • Espeon is the only Eeveelution not to have a type advantage against another.
  • Despite ESP in it's name being short for extra-sensory perception, Espeon cannot learn the move Extrasensory.
  • Espeon and Umbreon are the only Starter Pokémon to be recieved fully evolved. It also, along with Umbreon, is the only Pokémon to be recieved as a starter Pokémon as well as another.

Origin

It appears to be based on legend of the nekomata, also known as bake-neko. Nekomata are mysterious two-tailed goblin cats. It can also resemble 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 also bears some resemblance to the Fennec Fox, which are thinly-built foxes with small noses, narrow eyes, and large ears.

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'sprototype English name and possibly refers to the ending suffix of evolution itself. Espeon also sounds like the french word Esprit meaning spirit. 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.
