Does anyone remember their first favorite Pokemon, and is it still your favorite? I remember that when I first watched it, Pikachu was my favorite. I still like Pikachu, but he’s nowhere near my top 10 favorites anymore. Pikachu was first knocked out of the number one spot by Charmander, then Eevee, then Charizard. As it stands now, Charizard (tied with Charmander), Jolteon, and Ninetales are my top three favorites.
I remember feeling so bad for the Charmander that was abandoned by his trainer, yet he still waited in the rain. I guess it’s the loyalty and cuteness of Charmander that made him my favorite, beating Pikachu for the top spot. Charmander is still to this day my number one favorite starter. When Charmander evolved into Charmeleon I wasn’t too happy because of how he wouldn’t listen to Ash.

Last time, I covered the strange mystery that is an Eevee. I will be more specific on how you can get Eevee’s “Eeveelutions” through various games. Through the classic games, a Water Stone would turn Eevee into Vaporeon, the one with lots of HP. A Thunderstone will turn Eevee into Jolteon, and a Fire Stone, into Flareon. To turn Eevee into Espeon or Umbreon, you need to increase its happiness. Before time-based Pokemon games came out (time is the deciding factor for this evolution), you would need a Sun Stone for it to turn into Espeon, the sly, powerful, Psychic-type, or Umbreon, the well-rounded Dark-type.
In games like Pokemon Mystery Dungeon, you would need a Solar or Lunar Ribbon, and of course, feed your Eevee some gummies for its IQ to increase. More specifically, in games (starting from Pokemon Diamond and Pearl Versions) you would need to evolve Eevee between 12pm and 12am; this is considered daytime in Pokemon. On the other hand, 12am to 12pm is considered night time; it’s required you get your Eevee happy enough to turn it into Umbreon. To get the two recent forms, Leafeon and Glaceon, you would need to also make it happy, but you must be near certain stones. Since there are no places with stones in Johto/Kanto (Heart Gold and Soul Silver Versions), it’s impossible to get a Leafeon or Glaceon there; you may need to trade it from Diamond or Pearl version.

Eevee is regarded by many as cute, adorable, but most of all, popular. I find myself a liking to Eevee too, since it is definitely one of a kind. Eevee, the Normal-type Evolution Pokemon, can evolve into seven different forms, each with its own strength and element. It all started with the first three: Vaporeon, the Water-type, Jolteon, the Electric-type, and Flareon, the Fire-type. In fact, I remember seeing these on the actual TV show. Team Rocket (the original antagonists) stole Eevee, as well as its evolved companions. Ash and his group were able to catch them and send them blasting off again. Since I was pretty young, I didn’t know what they were until I heard their names.
Another encounter was when I first started playing Pokemon Coliseum. As the hero, you will start off with Espeon and Umbreon, the Psychic- and Dark-type evolutions of Eevee. The Sinnoh region is currently the most recent one to feature the last evolutions of Eevee: Leafeon and Glaceon, the Grass- and Ice-type. In the game, Eevee is very rare to come upon.
