In the games
Generation I, Eevee is obtained at the Celadon Mansion and can evolve into Jolteon, Flareon, or Vaporeon through the use of an Evolution stone.
Main article: Eevee
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.
Galar, certain Eevee, while incapable of evolving, are capable of Gigantamaxing.
Main article: Vaporeon Vaporeon, the first of the Eeveelutions in National Pokédex order, is a Water-type Pokémon. It evolves from an Eevee that is exposed to a Water Stone.
Vaporeon is the only Eeveelution that does not share any weakness with another.
Main article: Jolteon Jolteon is the second of the Eeveelutions, evolving from exposure to a Thunder Stone, and is an Electric-type Pokémon.
Jolteon is the only Eeveelution without an obvious tail. However, in the
The Electric Tale of Pikachu manga, it is shown to have a stubby tail under its spikes, although the tail is absent from its Generation V backsprite.
Main article: Flareon
The final member of
Generation I's Eeveelution trio is Flareon, a Fire-type Pokémon, evolving from Eevee when it is exposed to a Fire Stone.
Flareon is the only Eeveelution with a type advantage over more than one other Eeveelution.
Eevee is again available relatively early in
Generation II, which introduces two new Eeveelutions: Espeon and Umbreon, obtained when Eevee is leveled up with high friendship at certain times of the day. Each of Ecruteak City's Kimono Girls owns one of the five Eeveelutions that existed in Generation II.
Because there is no
clock system in FireRed and LeafGreen, Eevee cannot evolve into Espeon or Umbreon even though they exist and can be traded in from Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald Versions.
Main article: Espeon
Psychic-type Espeon evolves from Eevee when it is raised to a friendship of 220 or higher and gains a level during the daytime or if the player has a Sun Shard ( Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness). It, alongside Umbreon, is the starter Pokémon for Pokémon Colosseum.
Espeon is the only Eeveelution not to have a type advantage over another at all.
Main article: Umbreon
Umbreon is the second of the two Generation II Eeveelutions, a Dark-type Pokémon. Umbreon evolves from Eevee when it has a friendship of 220 or higher and gains a level during the nighttime or if the player has a Moon Shard ( Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness). It, alongside Espeon, is the starter Pokémon for Pokémon Colosseum.
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 in those games, and can only be obtained by trading in from Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum Versions.
Main article: Leafeon Leafeon is the Grass-type evolution of Eevee. When an Eevee is leveled up near a large, mossy rock (from Generations IV through VII) or exposed to a Leaf Stone (in Generation VIII), it will evolve into this Pokémon.
Leafeon is the only Eeveelution whose base stat in Special Defense is lower than 95.
Main article: Glaceon
Glaceon is an Ice-type evolution of Eevee. Glaceon evolves from Eevee when it is leveled up near an ice-covered rock (from Generations IV through VII and in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl) or exposed to an Ice Stone (in Pokémon Sword and Shield and Pokémon Legends: Arceus).
Eeveelutions once again skip a
generation and introduce a new evolution in Generation VI: 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, or in Generation VIII, when leveled up with a Fairy-type move and at least 160 base happiness.
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).
