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




Dream world Espeon

Espeon are a feline-like Pokémon with light purple colored fur. A red jewel rests on its head, and glows whenever Espeon uses its psychic abilities, Espeon are also able to use the fine hairs that cover its body to predict the future as well as its opponent's next move. It has a slender tail tapering into two ends.

Special abilities

Espeon use the fine hairs on their pelts 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. Overall, Espeon is a good choice for some trainers.


Espeon is one of the seven 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 friendship in daytime.

  • Espeon's name may be derived from ESP (Exrasensory perception), casually referred to as Sixth Sense, which is a psychic ability.
  • Espeon can learn Zap Cannon in Generation II. Strangely it can't learn other weaker Electric type moves, Electric Hidden Power not included.
  • Espeon, Sunflora and Volcarona have the same species. All of them are Sun Pokémon.

  • Espeon and Mewtwo are similar. Both are cat like, Psychic Type, and regular form is purple and 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, and Umbreon is yellow and black while Espeon is only a light purple/pink.
    • However, if you count the color of its jewel, it is a mix of purple and red.

  • Espeon and Umbreon are the most catlike of all of Eevee's evolutions. Besides having catlike appearances, the fact they must gain total trust in their trainer to evolve is another catlike quality. Real cats are solitary, and must treat them with respect for them to trust you.
  • Espeons gem on its forehead can see what's going on.
  • 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 Pokemon with jewels on their foreheads.


It could 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. Nekomata also has two tails, like Espeon.

Name origin

Its 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".
