==Trivia==
==Origin==* Espeon is not obtainable in {{2v|FireRed|LeafGreen}} due to the lack of a time system. In order to be obtained and added to the [[Pokédex]] in these versions, an Eevee must be traded to {{3v|Ruby|Sapphire|Emerald}}, evolved there, and then traded back, or else traded from {{g|Colosseum}} or {{Pokémon XD}}.
It* appearsEspeon toshares beits based{{pkmn|category}} onname legendwith of{{p|Sunflora}} theand [[wp:nekomata{{p|nekomata]], also known as bake-nekoVolcarona}}. NekomataThey are mysteriousall two-tailedknown goblin cats. Simultaneously, Espeon also appeares to be based on an Egyptian goddess ofas the sun [[wp:Bast|Bast]], who was typically depicted with the head of aSun catPokémon.
* 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.
 
===Name originOrigin===
Because of its feline appearance, Espeon's nameappears isto derivedbe frombased on the legend of the ''ESP{{wp|bakeneko}}'', orand [[the ''{{wp:extra-sensory|nekomata}}'', perceptionboth ''{{wp|extra-sensoryyōkai}}'' perception]],depicted aas branchmysterious, ofintelligent, fork-tailed psychicgoblin abilitiescats. ''Eon''The wasorb theon proto-typeits forforehead also shares similar traits to that of the {{pwp|EeveeCarbuncle (mythology)|carbuncle}}, Espeon'sa preLatin-evolvedAmerican formmythological beast that had a jewel on its forehead. Espeon'sThe Japanesered namecoloring isof probablythe derivedjewel fromcould be a reference to a {{wp|lunar eclipse}}, an event in which the factmoon thatpasses it'sdirectly forkedbehind tailEarth looksand likeinto aits shadow, making it appear capitalred letterin "F"color.
 
Its large ears can be traced to {{wp|caracal}}s, {{wp|oriental shorthair}}s, {{wp|lynx}}es, and possibly {{wp|serval}}s. 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.
 
Eifie is a combination of エスパー ''esupaa'' (''ESPer'', a person with psychic powers) and フィール ''fiiru'' (feel), referring to its extraordinary sensory abilities. It is very similar to Eevee, in both writing and sound (イーブイ/エーフィ).
