Jolteon (Japanese: サンダース Thunders) is an Electric-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

It evolves from Eevee when exposed to a Thunder Stone.

It is one of Eevee's final forms, the others being Vaporeon, Flareon, Espeon, Umbreon, Leafeon, Glaceon, and Sylveon.

Biology

 
Jolteon jumping up a building

Jolteon is a quadrupedal, mammalian Pokémon. It is covered in yellow fur with a spiky fringe around its tail and a white ruff around its neck. Its ears are large and pointed with black interiors, and its eyes and small nose are black. It has slender legs and small paws, each with three toes and a pink paw-pad.

Jolteon creates electricity using an organ in its lungs, which causes crackling noises as it exhales. It can also generate low-level electricity in its cells, which is amplified by the negative ions it gathers and generates in its fur, allowing it to discharge 10,000-volt lightning bolts. Jolteon's prickly fur is made of electrically charged needles, which create a sparking noise as it moves. It is capable of launching its fur at enemies when agitated or startled; the charge is so powerful that it can remain on the shed fur for a long time. This Pokémon is most often found in cities and towns under the ownership of Trainers. However, its high-strung nature and tendency toward mood swings can make it difficult to train. As mentioned in Pokémon Sleep, the crackling sound of electricity can be heard while Jolteon exhales during its slumber.[1]

Evolution

Jolteon evolves from Eevee.

(For specifics on this Pokémon's evolution in the games, refer to Game data→Evolution data.)

Trivia

  • In English, the category "Lightning Pokémon" is shared by Jolteon and Electrike.
  • If a Thunder Stone is used on a paralyzed Eevee to evolve it into Jolteon, the paralysis will not be removed.
    • In Japanese, Jolteon has the category かみなりポケモン Kaminari Pokémon (Lightning Pokémon), while Electrike has the category いなずまポケモン Inazuma Pokémon (Lightning Pokémon).
  • Jolteon's and Zapdos's Japanese names are almost exactly identical, with a final ~ス ~s being the only difference.

Concept and development

Jolteon was designed by Motofumi Fujiwara.[2][3]

Origin

Jolteon's physical anatomy seems to be primarily based on a herding dog or possibly a fennec fox, with several traits of coyotes. It also resembles jackrabbits and other types of hares, or felines such as the serval and the cheetah; the latter is known for being the fastest land animal, which may be alluded to with Jolteon's speed. Its needle-like fur may derive from porcupines, while its ability to launch its fur may be inspired by the myth that porcupines are able to shoot out their quills when threatened.

Additionally, Jolteon may have been inspired by the raijū, a beast from Japanese mythology whose body is made of lightning, and may take the form of a dog.

Name origin

Jolteon may be a combination of jolt and eon (an immeasurably long period of time, possibly referring to how long evolution takes naturally). Eon is a suffix all Eevee evolutions share and was Eevee's English prototype name.

Thunders is literally thunders.
