What animal is Eevee based on?
Eevee resembles the fennec fox, a real-life animal with long, upright ears, large eyes and a tiny snout. Eevee appears to look like a mixture of many other mammals, such as rabbits, cats and dogs, which might be a result of its varied genetic makeup.
Motofumi Fujiwara, a character artist at Game Freak, mentioned that he drew Eevee’s design from a childhood memory of a creature he couldn’t recognize, but which looked like a cute dog or a fluffy cat.
What are the strengths of each Eeveelution?
Every Eeveelution has a particular stat in which they specialize.
Vaporeon is the tankiest, possessing the most HP. Flareon, the Fire-type, naturally has the highest Physical Attack, while Glaceon and Espeon wield the strongest Special Attack stat.
Meanwhile, Leafeon wins the contest for best Defense. Umbreon and Sylveon both have the superior Special Defense stat. True to their type, Jolteon is the quickest among the Eeveelutions.
While their stats are distributed differently, each Eeveelution starts with their base stats totalling 525.
