Vaporeon (Japanese: シャワーズ Showers) is a Water-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

Biology

A Vaporeon melting into water molecules

Vaporeon is a Pokémon that shares physical traits with both aquatic and land animals. Vaporeon's body is light blue with a dark blue marking around its head and a spiky ridge down its spine. It has black eyes and a tiny black nose. There a white fin encircling its neck and three fins with cream-colored webbing on its head. One of these fins is on each side of its head similar to ears and one is directly on top of its head similar in appearance to a dorsal fin. Vaporeon is a quadruped with three small toes on each foot and dark blue paw pads on the hind feet. Its split tail fin has been mistaken for a mermaid's in the past. It can detect moisture with its fins, which vibrate when rain will fall soon.

Vaporeon is mostly found in urban settings under the ownership of a Trainer. It is rarely seen in the wild, but it prefers clean freshwater lakes. It has developed gills to become better suited to an aquatic lifestyle, and its cell composition's similarity to water allows it to melt into the water. This ability enables Vaporeon to remain camouflaged while swimming and ambush its prey: fish Pokémon.

Trivia

  • Vaporeon is the only Water-type that appears in the field section of Pal Park.
  • In Generation I, Vaporeon had a notably different design with the backs of its ears being all black, fins on each leg, and a fin running down the entire length of its back. All of these details were removed in Generation II. Notably, these details weren't present in its original Pokémon Red and Green artwork.
  • In Pokémon Yellow, Vaporeon is programmed to learn both Haze and Mist at level 42; however, a bug prevents a Pokémon from learning more than one move at the same level, so Vaporeon cannot learn Mist in Yellow.
  • Vaporeon was designed by Atsuko Nishida.[1]
  • Vaporeon has the highest base HP stat of all Eeveelutions.
  • Vaporeon is tied with Flareon, Jolteon, and Espeon for the lowest base Defense stat of all Eeveelutions.

Origin

Vaporeon's origins are uncertain, though it could be based on a cross between aquatic creatures, felines, and canids. The fins and dorsal lining may be based on different types of tropical fish. Its ears resemble a mix between a fish's fin and a fennec fox's ears. Its tail also shares characteristics with mermaids or dolphins.

Vaporeon may also be inspired by the Telchines of Greek mythology, or the Merlion, a national symbol of Singapore. Its ability to become invisible and turn into water might be inspired by the Asrai. Vaporeon's resemblance to both carnivorans and cetaceans could be based on primitive whales, such as Kutchicetus. Its fringe around its neck resembles a ruff and gives it a resemblance to a lion.

Name origin

Vaporeon is a combination of vapor (a gaseous form of water) 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.

Showers is literally showers, as in rain showers.
