* 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></ref>
* Espeon has blue inner ears in the games, but in other forms of media, such as the anime, they are often purple.
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.
