List of Eeveelutions by National Pokédex order
Introduced in Generation I
Generation I, only one Eevee is obtainable in-game, at the Celadon Mansion. It can evolve into Vaporeon, Jolteon, or Flareon through the use of an Evolution stone.
Main article: Eevee
Normal-type Eevee is Blue's starter Pokémon in Pokémon Yellow and Trace's starter Pokémon in Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu!, as well as the player's starter Pokémon in Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee!, XD: Gale of Darkness, and Conquest. In Let's Go, Pikachu!, Trace will always evolve his Eevee into a Jolteon; however, in Let's Go, Eevee!, the player's Eevee cannot evolve, as it is a Partner Pokémon. To compensate for this, the player's Partner Eevee has higher stats than a regular Eevee and can be taught special moves related to the types of the other Eeveelutions.
Galar, certain Eevee, while incapable of evolving, are capable of Gigantamaxing.
At eight, Eevee has the most
branched evolutions. As such, in case of multiple evolutionary conditions being met simultaneously, the following is true: Leafeon and Glaceon are prioritized over Sylveon, and Sylveon is prioritized over Espeon and Umbreon.
Furthermore, Eevee will never evolve into:
Main article: Vaporeon
Water-type Eeveelution, Vaporeon, evolves from Eevee when exposed to a Water Stone.

Introduced in Generation II
Eevee is available relatively early in
Pokémon Gold, Silver, and Crystal, but keeps its rarity. Generation II introduced friendship and a day-night cycle, and alongside them, two new Eeveelutions that take advantage of the new mechanics: Espeon and Umbreon. Each of Ecruteak City's Kimono Girls owns one of the five Eeveelutions that existed in Generation II.
Eevee cannot evolve into Espeon or Umbreon in
Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen, due to the absence of a day-night cycle. However, as both are present in the games, they can be legitimately obtained in a save file by trading an Eevee to Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald, evolving it there, and then trading back, or by trading from Pokémon Colosseum or Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness.
Main article: Espeon
Psychic-type Eeveelution, Espeon, evolves from Eevee when leveled up with a friendship of 220 or higher during the day or with a Sun Shard in the XD player's Bag, except in areas with a Moss Rock or Ice Rock, or while knowing a Fairy-type move S M US UM Sw Sh LA (and having at least two levels of S V affection ).

To have been introduced with a unique
type combination. To be immune to another Eeveelution's type; in this case, Espeon.
Introduced in Generation IV
an entire generation with no new Eeveelutions, Generation IV added another pair of Eeveelutions, Leafeon and Glaceon, which are obtained by leveling Eevee up in certain areas—another departure from the methods of evolution in previous generations. Since Generation VIII, however, they can also be obtained through the use of an Evolution stone.
Eevee cannot evolve into Leafeon or Glaceon in
Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, due to the absence of the areas required for its evolution in either of the regions the games are set in. However, as both are present in the games, they can be legitimately obtained in a save file by trading in from Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum.

Pokémon Pocket Monsters
Vaporeon, Jolteon, and Flareon were seen in the
Pocket Monsters manga.
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. Sylveon was first introduced into the TCG in Furious Fists (if the XY Black Star Promos and the XY Trainer Kit are not counted). The most recent expansion to include the entire Eevee family is Evolving Skies.
Eevee's unique trait of evolving into different types can be traced back to a request made by
Game Freak CEO Satoshi Tajiri to have a Pokémon that evolves into multiple types. Eevee itself was designed as a "blank slate" for its varied evolutions.
 All Eeveelutions initially evolved using a method that was introduced in their respective generations.
No Eeveelution is of a type that was considered
physical prior to Generation IV. No Eeveelution has HP or Special Defense as its lowest base stat.
The Eeveelutions were featured along with Eevee in the
Eevee Essences Collection. A chapter of Magical Pokémon Journey, , parodies this term. Eevee-Lu-Tion Name origin
