Eevee Community Day Overview (Via LegendsLima)
By - Amiibofan101
Umbreon and Leafeon look like the winners here. Dunno what they were thinking with vaporeon and jolteon tho lol
Edit: removing “big” from “big winners”. They got the least useless moves.
Sylveon too! Psyshock is better than last resort at first glance from the sims. Leafeon needs double legacy to be good but hey its much better than razor leaf + last resort
If the sims look good then good. I assumed most of the popular poison types would also be dark, negating the advantage. I suppose it would be good against croak and nidoqueen.
Well considering there is a whopping five Poison/Dark types in the whole of Pokémon's catalog of creatures, a psychic type move for Sylveon is huge. Not super familiar with PvP but I assume that Skuntank, Drapion, and Alolan Muk don't see much play, and those are the only Poison/Dark types so.
I used alolan muk a ton during ultra league, less in great league. It’s not so much a matter of raw pokedex count as much as how often a particular pokemon gets used. There’s lots of poison in the dex, but they don’t get much play in pvp. Toxicroak is big, nidoqueen is having a renaissance, but outside of those I can’t think of anything else.
All three of those see plenty of play in PvP actually.
I use toxicroak and the alhoan muk all the time in pvp. Only one of them in my line up though. Muk is ultra and toxicroak is in my great league I belive. Not really hard-core player just ended up having them in my team one time and I slayed so they stayed
I've got a 4* vaporeon, scald isn't an improvement?
For pve, vaporeon would want hydro pump. For pvp, aqua tail is cheap and decent power, while hydro pump is its nuke (or last resort if you need an off-type move). Scald doesn’t really do anything for it.
EDIT: as always though, niantic could change how these moves work at any time, so always evolve 1 in case they do.
True, got my 4* vaporeon from a raid last year - so evolution wasn't an option
Scald is a straight downgrade from aqua tail in PvP. More expensive and less DPE...
Those were my two picks too.
Glad I was too lazy to evolve a Sylveon before this
SCALD IS BACK!
Gives me hope for a rework and wider distribution.
I want it to be icy wind, and I want Tentacruel to get it.
Tentacruel is so ready to be an Great and Ultra League staple but he comes out short.
Same with Crobat, I've being using mine for a long time but it so much better now with Poison Fang, not it just need wing attack/Gust and maybe Crunch/Brave Bird.
Sadly sylveon still get walled by steel.
Yeah I'm not convinced if this is an upgrade for Sylveon. I haven't evolved my PVP ones and may not that weekend either.
Probably better for any GL/UL Sylveon considering the Poison types.
Maybe, when I simmed it didn’t seem to help much ... probably just makes those a friendlier loss unless you have energy. It’s certainly the one that I’m most unsure of.
Bummer. A psychic attack helps it with poison types but they are almost non-existent in master league. Wish it got something that was at least neutral against steel.
Unfortunately the only move (I think) sylveon gets that would be neutral against steel is shadow ball, and niantic gave that to espeon.
Good luck trying to evolve Umbreon above the arctic circle since we still have summer here and sun doesnt go down for enough time for the game to register it is night 😠
Wow that’s an oversight and a half if I’ve ever heard one.
They should renew the name trick for everyone.
Give everyone 5 name trick uses for each eeveelution during the CD.
Or not limit that shiz in the first place. Random evolutions are obnoxious.
Hey, I’m all for it, but niantic gonna niantic.
or at least just for the RNG gen 1 eevees
What are you talking about? The mon in question here are Umbereon and Espeon.

This discussion is evolving, just backwards
Chances of Niantic letting us reuse the eeveelution names?
Are the Kanto evolutions still random? If so, that’s REALLY dumb, considering the others all have specific ways to evolve them…
Wild guess that the $1 research will have you choose which evolution you want to receive. Looks like an obvious use of the branching quest system.
Yes, but if I get good shinies or any 100%s, I’d like to choose which evolution I want.
Umbreon out here like, "All I do is win"
win win no matter what
money on my mind
Umbreon with that move sounds a little op, can someone run the simulations?
I don't have simulation but more of a give and take it seems. With psychic, you give up all hope of beating another dark type, but it does obviously put you in a better place against fighting a poisons. But still, foul play is often still good against the poisons and last resort against the often more frail fighting types. Most are saying right now that the loss to darks isn't worth it. Could depend on the league/cup tho
When I did sims yesterday it did seem like overall a win for Umbreon. Dark is the only real big loss, but Psychic helping vs Poison and Fighters and being overall better in neutral situations seems like a big win to me.
It gives it a few more wins and higher battle rating when I did sims...but definitely not OP.
Hmm I have a hundo Eevee and I haven't been able to figure out what to use it for! I already have a 98% (or maybe 96%, I forget) Umbreon which I am slowly bringing to 50.
What would y'all say the chances of them bringing back the name trick is?
I would say it's at least three
A secondary account can use the name trick of course!
Now I can get a few more shinies to complete the eevee line
I thought the title said "LegendsLigma" and I feel like such a fool
Will the nickname trick be in effect? I just need Flareon and Jolteon to get a full shiny Eevee line
They didn't reset the name trick for the last Eevee Community Day, so I wouldn't expect it for this one. Unfortunately, if you've used them, then you'll just have to rely on luck for Jolteon/Flareon/Vaporeon.
Dang. Thanks for the heads up.
What id do not understand is why aren't they one resetting the name trick for people who have used it? Two allow us to evolve Vap, Flare and Jolt via lures for the event only. The later would mean sale of lure meaning coin in Niantic's pockets.
Nice, a weekend off.
the fact that people are downvoting someone for having an opinion that differs from theirs is both petty and pathetic.
Welcome to /r/TheSilphRoad, where you are only allowed to praise community days even if they are a repeat. Doesn't matter much, I'll be long gone by the time they roll back the extended stop distance.
Downvoting someone isn't petty. Its just online points that mean nothing lol
I suppose this means a PvP Umbreon is in order.
You guys think we can tm moves away? I used an elite charge tm for my flower crown umbreon 😅
So disappointed.. recycled again.
You know there are tons of new players since the original Eevee com day right?
Returning players and XL hunters too.
Yeah, I'll take this over something like Wurmple or Starly any day.
I like the weird ones. I would gladly take the wurmple or finneon or Spheal community day.
But this is fine, too, especially with most of the moves. I don't know what they were thinking with Zap cannon, unless they add a debuff to it or rework it somehow.
While I completely understand the desire for new people to have this CD. I also specifically spent both days last time playing the entire time to ensure id have enough shinies for every current and future evolution of eevee. Kinda makes it seem pointless now...oh well lol
I understand the sentiment but personally Id take a wurmple day.
I think next august Niantic should do ALL multi evolve pokemons on the same day.
That would be the ultimate community day
This may be an unpopular opinion, but simply because there are "tons of new players" doesn't preclude someone from being disappointed that this is a repeat, with a meta-irrelevant pokemon for anyone other than noobs. I get that people want to stay positive, but let's not take that to the point of being fake. It's ok if someone is disappointed, and that doesn't mean it's an invalid opinion.
It's Reddit bud how people are, you show any negativity and everyone jumps on the bandwagon to complain that this person's opinion is irrelevant.
I'm super excited!
Me too, I want XL Sylveon and Vaporeon.
I'm actually looking forward to this even though it is recycled a lot more evolutions have released so even most long term players will likely be happy getting those registered shiny and a chance to get tons of xl candy is really nice
How do you not have enough Eevee XL candy? Or normal candy? Do you like never pinap catches I do it with nearly every Pokémon. Most long term players have the candy for it, Eevee is a very common Pokémon in and out of events.
Because I want to max multiple eevleeloutions also Eevee is not common enough to the point of having xl candy spare for it although I don't tend to use pinaps on Eevee since I've been saving it for events such as go fest so i can stock up on rarer pokemon candy's
Eevees have been unbelievably common.. I have 35k regular candy and about 450 XL candy.. I don't see the point in maxing them I never use them anymore better alternatives. I use pinaps on almost everything thats decent within this game. Guessing your bag is about 2k in size wise? I always have a decent amount of pinaps. I pump nanabs/razz berries into gyms all the time and just stock up on pinaps normally stay on about 100-150 pinaps after I do a lap of town just farming items after I've done catching for the day.
Nope my bag is only 800 since I live in a fairly rural area and I'm not able to get coins regularly so that's probably the biggest difference plus spawn density here is probably worse than where you live
Well I normally have to travel to town I live in the outskirts of a town more near to a rural area. I normally walk 30 minutes to get to a decent spot for pogo. Spawns in my area were decent before the update of spawns now they're pretty much nonexistent. I'm at 3k bag size for Pokémon but other is 2.8k I travel alot to families/for work.
Recycling will always happen, and eevee is one of the best to recycle imo
I just hit level 40 so I’m excited for XL candies
Been playing since day 1 level 49 and it's pushing alot of OG away with the recycled non sense. I wouldn't be excited its nothing special just another money pit for legendaries.
Glaceon got the shaft
It's decent coverage for fire, steel and rock types even if the dpe isn't amazing on water pulse.
So do we only have two hours to evolve after 5pm till 7pm like normal (plus the actual catch hours of course)?
Because what if I get two good Eevee's on the day and I want one as Espeon and one as Umbreon. Have I got walk both 10k before 7pm.... And it won't even be dark/night where I am at 7pm... So I can't get an Umbreon?
The evolve moves run from Friday 13th at 10am PDT to Monday 16th at 10am PDT, so you'll have plenty of time to evolve.
20k is a lot to walk for just two Pokémon. Plus what if I want to do more than one of each. Seems a bit under thought imo
Still better than the last time Eevee had a com day. Was only 3 hours each day then and I don't think they'd added the extra time for evolving for moves back then either.
ETA: Just double checked and they gave you the time between the Saturday and Sunday events to evolve Eevee last time.
Walk them now.
We can’t use charged tm to learn last resort? I got a lucky eevee I wanna evolve but also want last resort
Nope. You'll either need to use an Elite Charge TM for Last Resort or wait for an event that makes Last Resort Umbreon available through evolution.
I know this is probably going to sound dumb but what is the point in having Eevee with a strong move at all because what is Eevee used for in battle, it's so weak? Or does this just mean that you have to catch an Eevee with this move during the event to get the other moves for the evolutions?
For the most part, it's a novelty collector move for Eevee. I don't think Last Resort is very useful for it in Little Cup, either.
You also do not need Last Resort Eevee to get any of the special moves. Any Eevee evolved during the specified hours will get their special move, no matter if it has Last Resort or not.
Thanks for explaining! And just one more to help me if you don't mind... Any Eevee? Lol or just ones caught after the event starts? 😬
Catch date is entirely irrelevant.
Ok the moves the eeveelutions will learn make more sense to why there is another community day for it
Okay, I was not into Pokémon way back when, there are 8 Eevolutions plus Eevee
What happened to the rest? Rock, Ground, Dragon, and so on? Should we not have like Ferrouseon, Sentimenteon, Gastleon, Aireon, and so on to cover all they typing? Sorry I made those up..lol
Wanna have a good time? Google fan made eeveelutions!
Gamefreak slacking on making those evolutions.
What are the Eevee CD moves like for a PvE player?
Nothing of importance for PvE.
Maybe if you wanted it for Rocket Leaders, Bullet Seed + Leaf Blade Leafeon could be useful.
Eeveelutions aren't very meta relevant for PvE players. These coverage moves don't bring anything to the table.
What do we think of superpower for flareon? Will that be a W?
Bro my bday is on the 15th and eevee is the community day?? Hell yes!!! Let’s gooooo
Umbreon uses last resort against dark types, which resists psychic. Psychic has its uses but i would still prefer last resort in pvp in most cases
I just needed one more shiny Eevee (Leafeon) to complete my collection. Now this makes me sad. They should allow us to TM for CD moves on a pokémon's CD.
Why are you sad?
Well you’re about to get a crap load more of them so rejoice.
will these moves be teachable with regular TM's during the CD?
No. That has never been the case.
(Don't @ me about Pikachu, that was a beta test).
