Full Answer

An Eevee can be obtained by either getting one from Bill’s House in Goldenrod City or breeding an Eevee egg. The egg can be obtained by leaving the Eevee with a mate at a Daycare. The mate can be a Ditto or any evolution of Eevee: Flareon, Vaporeon, Jolteon, Glaceon, Sylveon or Leafeon. A male and a female are needed to breed.

Once the player has the Eevee, keep its happiness level high. This can be done by:

  • Giving Eevee a soothe bell
  • Making sure Eevee doesn’t faint in battle
  • Feeding Eevee berries
  • Grooming Eevee
  • Using stat boost items on Eevee

Happiness directly affects the ability to evolve Eevee into Umbreon or Espeon.

Time is the defining factor in the evolution. Training during the day (between 4 a.m. and 8 p.m.) will yield an Espeon. Training at night will give an Umbreon.

In Pokémon XD, an Espeon can evolve by the player carrying a sun shard in the pack while training Eevee. Similarly, an Umbreon can be obtained by carrying a moon shard in the pack.

Both have interesting status effects and stats:

Espeon:

  • Psychic-type weak against Bug, Dark and Ghost types
  • Strong against Fighting and Poison types
  • Highest Stat is Special Attack and lowest Stat is Defence or Hit Points

Umbreon:

  • Dark-type weak against Fighting and Bug types
  • Strong against Psychic and Ghost
  • Highest Stat is Special Defence and lowest Stat is Attack or Speed

Evolving an Eevee into Umbreon or Espeon requires careful control of happiness levels and training times. Controlling these factors will provide players with their choice of Pokemon.
