Biology

Physiology

Espeon

Dream world Espeon

Espeon is a quadrupedal feline Pokémon. Sleek and very fine lilac purple fur covers its body. It has red jewel encrusted on its forehead; this jewel glows whenever Espeon uses its Psychic abilities. Its face is distinctly catlike with a short, blunt muzzle and a tiny triangular nose. It has long pointed ears, and whisker-like tufts of fur protruding from either side of its face just below its ears. Its eyes are deep purple and almond-shaped with white pupils. It has a slender tail that tapers into two ends, as if it is splitting into two.

Special abilities

Espeon use the fine hairs on their pelts and the gems on their heads to sense air currents and predict their opponent's next move as well as the weather.

Espeon have very high Special Attack and Speed stats. However, all of the other stats are near average. 

Evolution

Espeon is one of the eight evolved forms of Eevee. Eevee evolves into Espeon with Happiness during the day-time. In Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness, Eevee can also evolve into Espeon by using a Sun Shard.

Trivia

  • Espeon can learn Zap Cannon in Generation II. Strangely it can't learn other weaker Electric type moves.
  • Espeon, Sunflora and Volcarona have the same species. All of them are Sun Pokémon.

  • Espeon and Mewtwo are similar. Both are catlike, Psychic Type, and their regular form is purple while their shiny form is green.
  • Out of all the "Eeveelutions", Espeon is the only one that isn't mainly two different colors. For example, Flareon is orange and white, Eevee is brown and white, Jolteon is yellow and white, Glaceon and Vaporeon (if you don't count the white part around its neck) are light blue and dark blue, Umbreon is yellow and black and Sylveon in pink and white while Espeon is only a light purple or pink.
    • However, if you count the color of its jewel, it is a mix of purple and red.

  • Besides having a distinct catlike appearance, the fact that Espeon must gain total trust in their trainer to evolve is another catlike quality. Real cats are solitary, and must be treated with respect in order for them to trust you.
  • Espeon can sense what is going on in its environment with the gem on its forehead.
  • In Generation II, Red used an Espeon, but was later replaced by Lapras in Generation IV.
  • Espeon looks similar to Blaze the Cat from the Sonic series, with the red gem on the forehead and cat-like face.
  • Espeon is somewhat similar to Persian, as they are both catlike, first-evolution Pokémon with jewels on their foreheads.

Origin

Like all Eeveelutions, Espeon resembles a cat. It is most likely be based on a Nekomata, a two-tailed cat of Japanese mythology that holds a variety of psychic powers, which may include the ability to foresee the future or enter someone's dreams.

Etymology

Espeon's name is derived from ESP (Extrasensory Perception), which is the ability to see the future and "eon", as is followed by every evolution of Eevee. It could also be derived from "espionage" (which is the practice of spying to obtain information on an enemy, much like Espeon does by psychically predicting its foes next move with the gem on its forehead).
