Espeon (Japanese: エーフィ Eifie) is a Psychic-type Pokémon introduced in Generation II.

It evolves from Eevee when leveled up with high friendship during the day or morning, or when leveled up with high friendship with a Sun Shard in the BagXD. It is one of Eevee's final forms, the others being Vaporeon, Jolteon, Flareon, Umbreon, Leafeon, Glaceon, and Sylveon.

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

Biology

Espeon is a quadruped, mammalian Pokémon with slender legs and dainty paws. It is covered in fine, lilac fur. This velvety fur is sensitive for Espeon to sense minute shifts in the air, thus allowing it to predict the weather. Its ears are large, and it has purple eyes with white pupils. There are tufts of fur near its eyes, and a small, red gem embedded in its forehead. The gem boosts the psychic powers that it gained to protect its Trainer from harm. It also has a thin, forked tail that quivers when it predicts its opponent's moves. Espeon is rare in the wilderness, and is more commonly found in urban areas.

Trivia

Origin

Because of its feline appearance, Espeon appears to be based on the legend of the bakeneko and the nekomata, both yōkai depicted as mysterious, intelligent, fork-tailed goblin cats. The orb on its forehead also shares similar traits to that of the carbuncle, a Latin-American mythological beast that had a jewel on its forehead. The red coloring of the jewel could be a reference to a lunar eclipse, an event in which the moon passes directly behind Earth and into its shadow, making it appear red in color.

Its large ears can be traced to caracals, oriental shorthairs, lynxes, and possibly servals. Espeon's ability to sense minute shifts in the air with its sensitive fur mirrors the cat's ability of using its sensitive whiskers to detect the slightest directional change in a breeze.

Name origin

Espeon is a combination of ESP (a branch of psychic abilities) and eon (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.

Eifie is a combination of エスパー esupaa (ESPer, a person with psychic powers) and フィール fiiru (feel), referring to its extraordinary sensory abilities. It is very similar to Eevee, in both writing and sound (イーブイ/エーフィ).
