Umbreon's origins are uncertain, though it could be based on a {{wp|black cat}}, which was considered to be an omen of bad luck (in Western countries, contrary to Japan's viewpoint in which they considered it lucky), and can be interpreted as the reasoning behind the {{t|Dark}} typing. It could also be based on {{wp|serval|servals}}, cats with dog-like bodies and a stripe behind each long ear (believed to function as unnerving {{wp|eyespot (mimicry)|eyespots}}, much like Umbreon's glowing rings). It may also have connections to the {{wp|Moon rabbit}}.

The rings on Umbreon's body resemble Egyptian lunar markings and jewelry that have been associated with animal sculptures, such as cat statues of the Egyptian goddess {{wp|Bastet}}. While Bastet was originally a lioness warrior and the goddess of the sun, Greeks occupying ancient Egypt toward the end of its civilization changed her into the goddess of the moon. This change may have drawn some of the inspiration for the Pokémon's lunar theme.

Umbreon (Japanese: ブラッキー Blacky) is a Dark-type Pokémon introduced in Generation II.

It evolves from Eevee when leveled up with high friendship during the night (in the main series games), or when leveled up with high friendship with a Moon Shard in the Bag (in Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness). It is one of Eevee's final forms, the others being Vaporeon, Jolteon, Flareon, Espeon, Leafeon, Glaceon, and Sylveon.

It is a starter Pokémon in Pokémon Colosseum alongside the other Generation II Eeveelution, Espeon.

Biology

Umbreon has a sleek, black body with four slender legs and crimson eyes. It has two pairs of pointed teeth (one in the upper jaw and one in the lower jaw) which are visible when its mouth is open. It has long, pointed ears and a bushy tail, each with a yellow band around them. Its forehead and legs have yellow rings on them.

Its yellow markings glow at night or when it is excited, and strike fear into anyone nearby. It hides in the darkness while waiting for its opponents, and its yellow rings glow when it leaps to attack. It is also capable of spraying a poisonous sweat when it gets agitated. This Pokémon is rare in the wild, and is more often found in urban areas under the care of people.

Trivia

Origin

Umbreon's origins are uncertain, though it could be based on a black cat, which was considered to be an omen of bad luck (in Western countries, contrary to Japan's viewpoint in which it is considered lucky), and can be interpreted as the reasoning behind the Dark typing. Its long ears are similar to those of a hare and may originate from the East Asian legends concerning a Moon rabbit.

The rings on Umbreon's body resemble Egyptian lunar markings and jewelry that have been associated with animal sculptures, such as cat statues of the Egyptian goddess Bastet. While Bastet was originally a lioness warrior and the goddess of the sun, Greeks occupying ancient Egypt toward the end of its civilization changed her into the goddess of the moon. This change may have drawn some of the inspiration for the Pokémon's lunar theme.

Additionally, Umbreon may be inspired by Tezcatlipoca, a central deity in Aztec religion who took the form of a black jaguar that had yellow horizontal bands, and was associated with the night sky.

Name origin

Umbreon may be a combination of umbra (Latin for shadow and ghost, as well as the English word for the moon's silhouette during a solar eclipse) and eon, a shortened form of evolution, the word also meaning 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.

Blacky may be a combination of black and lucky, as the black cat in Japan is considered lucky. It may also refer to the color of its coat.
