Eevee is the
rival's starter Pokémon in Pokémon Yellow as well as the starter Pokémon for both Michael in Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness and the Hero/ Heroine in Pokémon Conquest. In Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee!, an Eevee is the starter Pokémon of the player, while in Let's Go, Pikachu!, it is the starter Pokémon of their rival. While Trace always evolves his Eevee into Jolteon, the player's is treated as a Partner Pokémon which cannot evolve. To compensate for this, the player's Partner has higher stats than a regular Eevee and can be taught special moves related to the types of the other Eeveelutions.

Though no new Eeveelutions were introduced in
Generation III, Generation IV added another pair of new Eeveelutions, Leafeon and Glaceon, which are obtained by leveling Eevee up in certain areas, another departure from the methods of evolution in previous generations.
Because there is no
Moss Rock or Icy Rock in HeartGold and SoulSilver, Eevee cannot evolve into Leafeon or Glaceon even though they exist and can be traded in from Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum Versions.
Leafeon Main article: Leafeon Leafeon is the Grass-type evolution of Eevee. When an Eevee is leveled up near a large, mossy rock, it will evolve into this Pokémon.

Eeveelutions once again skip a
generation and introduce a new evolution in Generation VI: Sylveon.
Sylveon Main article: Sylveon Sylveon is a Fairy-type evolution of Eevee. It evolves when leveled up with a Fairy-type move and at least two Affection hearts in Pokémon-Amie or Pokémon Refresh.
Sylveon is the only Eeveelution introduced alone in an individual generation.

In the TCG
Pokémon Trading Card Game, many sets featuring the Eeveelutions have been released. Commonly, all of them will be released within the same expansion set, much as Flareon, Jolteon, and Vaporeon were originally released in the Jungle expansion.
Included with the
Skyridge expansion, also, is a Theme Deck by the name of Eeveelution, which features the original three Eeveelutions as the focus. However, the deck only includes the three Generation I Eeveelutions: whereas Umbreon was released in the set, Espeon was not.
There have also been several
deck archetypes that revolve around the Eeveelutions, mostly due to their versatility and their lack of a unanimous weakness. One of the most recent is Eeveelutions, which utilizes Pokémon-ex variants of all five then-known Eeveelutions. The use of this archetype has been assisted by the release of a great many Energy cards that provide more than one type of Energy, such as Rainbow Energy. In Majestic Dawn, Glaceon and Leafeon were introduced to the TCG; the set also included all previous Eeveelutions. The most recent expansion to include the Eevee family is Plasma Freeze, including all but Sylveon (since the set was released during Generation V). Sylveon was first introduced into the TCG in Furious Fists (if the XY Black Star Promos and the XY Trainer Kit are not counted).
Each Eeveelution has identical
base stat totals, as well as the same 130-110-95-65-65-60 amounts. What differs among them is which amount is allotted to which stat.
No Eeveelution so far has either HP or Special Defense as its lowest base stat. In the TCG, Glaceon and Vaporeon are the only Eeveelutions to share a type:
Water. A chapter of
Magical Pokémon Journey, , parodies this term. ( Eevee-Lu-Tion Eevee and Lu are the names of two characters from the Magical Pokémon Journey manga). The Eeveelutions were featured along with Eevee in the
Eevee Essences Collection. No Eeveelution is of a type that was considered
physical prior to Generation IV. Motofumi Fujiwara designed Eevee, Jolteon, and Flareon. Atsuko Nishida designed all of the other Eeveelutions.  Name origin
