Leafeon (Japanese: リーフィア Riifia) is a Eevee.-type Pokémon, and is one of the eight evolutionary forms of
AppearanceThe body of a Leafeon is slender and limber. Its tail and ears are styled to resemble torn and tattered leaves. Besides the leaf-like ears and tails, there are a multitude of smaller leaves growing from their bodies; leaves grow out from the knee joint areas on the forelegs and hind legs, its chest and its back. A larger, curled leaf grows from the middle of its forehead and is the same soft-green color of all the other leaves. It has the body that incorporates that of a fox, but shares many cat like qualities, as well as plant-like characteristics.
According to the Pokédex, Leafeon employs photosynthesis on top of its animal capabilities, as a result, it is always surrounded by fresh air.
Most of its behaviour is unknown. The only trainer who took it on was Zoey, appearing only in a Japanese episode of the anime called Pokémon Diamond & Pearl. It is soon to air on American screens. In the Pokemon Platinum Pokédex, it says it does not fight. Aside from this, there is no confirmation as to the behavior of this Pokémon.
In the anime
Leafeon has appeared under the ownership of Zoey. It appeared alongside Zoey's Mismagius
in a Grand Festival Semi Final contest battle with up against Nando's Kricketune and Lopunny. It is not known if Zoey's Leafeon evolved from an Eevee or not. Not much is known about this Pokémon.

Trainers with a Leafeon
- Leafeon is the first mammalian grass type.
- Despite the main way of evolving Eevee into Leafeon being near the mossy rock in Eterna Forest, there is another way in Black and White. A similar mossy rock exists in Pinwheel Forest. This is due to the fact that Eevee can't be transferred back to Gen IV games from Black and White to evolve into Leafeon or Glaceon.
- According to the Diamond and Pearl Pokédex, Leafeon and Glaceon's footprints are the same (this may be related to the fact they both evolve under similar conditions, levelling up near a special rock).
- Like Espeon, Leafeon has a type-disadvantage against its evolutionary counterpart (Umbreon and Glaceon respectively). The psychic-type Espeon is weak against the dark-type Umbreon and the grass-type Leafeon is weak against the Ice-type Glaceon. Interestingly both Espeon and Leafeon are associated with the sun and moves relating to it, as Espeon is the Sun pokemon (and learns Morning Sun via levelling up and Sunny Day via TM) and Leafeon uses the sun for photosynthesis (and learn Sunny Day & Synthesis via levelling up and Solarbeam via TM).
- Unlike Espeon, Leafeon does gain a type-advantage against one of the evolutions of Eevee, as the Water-type Vaporeon is weak against Leafeon's grass-type.
- In addition to Glaceon, the Leafeon has a type disadvantage against the Fire-type Flareon. This makes Leafeon and Vaporeon (as Vaporeon's water-type is also weak against to the Jolteon's Electric-type) the only evolutions of Eevee weak against the types of 2 evolutions of Eevee while they are also strong against at least 1 evolution of Eevee (Leafeon is strong against Vaporeon, while Vaporeon is strong against Flareon (which is strong against Leafeon).
- Both Leafeon and its counterpart Glaceon are weak against Flareon.
- Each eeveelution specialize in a stat; in Leafeon's case this is Defense.
