Umbreon (Japanese: ブラッキー Burakkii) is a Dark-type Pokémon introduced in Generation II.

Biology

Physiology

Umbreon is a quadrupedal feline Pokémon that resembles a black cat. It has mainly black fur with luminescent yellow rings encircling its ears and tail, and round yellow circular patterns on its forehead and on each of its upper legs. The rings glow when under the influence of moonlight. Its physical characteristics are feline, with a lithe thin body, cat-like red eyes with slit pupils, and a short muzzle with a small triangular nose. It has a slightly bushy black tail with a single yellow ring encircling its thickest part; the tail thins out at the tip. Umbreon has small sharp fangs, seen when its opens its mouth.

Eevee's much smaller body had been transformed under the influence of the moon's aura. For it to evolve, an Eevee must have full trust and friendship with its trainer during the night (in the games it is the same but Eevee must be leveled up during the night).

Behavior

Umbreon stalks silently during the night, hunting for prey under the cover of darkness. When it senses an enemy's presence, it waits for its enemy to come into range. When it attacks, its rings give off a bright golden light.

Special abilities

Umbreon can spray a cloud of toxic gas from its sweat glands when agitated. Also, since it's a fully evolved Pokémon, Umbreon can learn the moves Hyper Beam and Giga Impact and even though Umbreon is a Dark-type it is able to learn the move Psychic. Although Umbreon looks small, it has a strong endurance. Its base stats make it a good choice for defensive trainers.

Evolution

Umbreon evolves from Eevee if it achieves a certain level of high friendship and achieves that at night. In Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness, you can also evolve Eevee into Umbreon using a Moon Shard.

Gary Oak's Eevee evolved into an Umbreon shortly before appearing in Power Play!.

In BW004, Ash and company mistake a Tepig for one. Team Rocket's Meowth tried to impersonate an Umbreon, catching the attention of the searchers. Ash found what the "Umbreon" really was: an abandoned Tepig. Ash undid the knot around its snout and it later joined Ash's team.

Trivia

Origin

Like all Eevelutions, Umbreon resembles a cat. It is most likely based on black cats. Its rings also give it an Egyptian like feel, perhaps with roots from Bastet (WereCat). Its ears are rabbit-like, and it shares some traits with the Moon Hare of Japanese folklore.

Etymology

Umbreon's name originates from Umbra and Eon. Umbra means shade or shadow. Eon means a long period of time. That's because since it is one of the eight evolutions of Eevee, it comes from a "long line of evolutions", or an eon of evolutions.
