* Espeon shares its {{pkmn|category}} name with {{p|Sunflora}} and {{p|Volcarona}}. They are all known as the Sun Pokémon.
* Espeon was designed by [[Atsuko Nishida]].<ref>https://twitter.com/atsuko_nishida/status/783643367523557376</ref>
* Espeon has blue inner ears in the games, but in other forms of media, such as the anime, they are often purple.
 
===Origin===
Because of its feline appearance, Espeon appears to be based on the legend of the Japanese mythological creature, the {{wp|Bakenekobakeneko}} and the {{wp|Nekomatanekomata}}, whichboth areJapanese mythological creatures depicted as mysterious, intelligent, fork-tailed goblin cats. The orb on it'sits forehead couldalso beshares basedsimilar ontraits to that of the {{wp|Carbuncle (mythology)|carbuncle}}, a Latin-American mythological beast whichthat had a jewel on its forehead. The red coloring of the jewel could be a reference to a {{wp|lunar eclipse}}, an event in which the moon passes directly behind Earth and into its shadow, making it appear red in color. It's large ears can be traced within {{wp|caracal}}s, {{wp|sphynx cat}}s, and {{wp|lynx}}es.
 
Its large ears can be traced to {{wp|caracal}}s, {{wp|oriental shorthair}}s, and {{wp|lynx}}es. Espeon's ability to sense minute shifts in the air with its sensitive fur mirrors the cat's ability of using its sensitive whiskers to detect the slightest directional change in a breeze.
 
====Name origin====
Espeon is a combination of ''{{wp|extra-sensory perception|ESP}}'' (a branch of psychic abilities) and ''eon'' (an immeasurably long period of time, possibly referring to how long evolution takes naturally). ''Eon'' is a suffix all {{p|Eevee}} [[evolution]]s share and was Eevee's English prototype name.
