Espeon

Feature by EspeonDude_

 

Espeon is placed in the BL tier, due to its power being too powerful in UU, and too little for OU.
Espeon can fulfill many roles in a team, the most common being a Special Sweeper. It can scout, annoy, among others, though those are the most common

 

Although very underestimated, Espeon is pretty deadly when you don't have the proper counter for it. Be ready to get out anything that resists it or something that can safely take its attacks and proceed to KO it.

 


Where to Find Espeon

 


In the Gold, Silver and Crystal games:
- Get your Eevee from Bill and then max out its happiness by being nice to it, taking Eevee to be groomed, etc. Then during the daytime, level it up, it will evolve into Espeon.

 

In the Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald games:
- Get your Eevee traded over from Fire Red and Leaf Green and be nice to it, by not letting it faint in battle, and when its happiness is maxed out, level it up during the day. Eevee will turn into Espeon.

 

In the Fire Red and Leaf Green games:
- Get your Eevee and trade it over to Ruby, Sapphire or Emerald [because the FR/LG games have no clock] and then do the above method of being nice to it.

 

In the Diamond and Pearl games:
- With Eevee, be nice to it, as usual, and when its friendship is maxed out with you, Level it up during the day.

 

Strengths and Weaknesses

 

Espeon, being a Psychic type, is weak to the following types: Bug, Dark and Ghost. It is resistant to moves being typed as Fighting and Psychic.

 

Now in actual battle, if you come across the following Pokémon, get Espeon out:

 

Tyranitar [Even if your Espeon has Hidden Power [Fighting], it won't OHKO Tyranitar and it can proceed to OHKO you with Crunch.]
Metagross [Can easily take any of Espeon's attack and set anything up.]
Weavile [If it has Focus Sash, it can take a Hidden Power [Fighting] and KO you with Night Slash.]
Spiritomb [Resistant to Psychic and takes no damage from Hidden Power [Fighting] and can go back and hit you with Sucker Punch or Pursuit if you're switching out.]
Blissey [Even if you use the Fake Tears set, it usually will use Thunder Wave, rendering your awesome speed useless and then be taken out with Seismic Toss.]

 

Easy weaknesses.

 

Espeon can easily be strong against the following:

 

Infernape [There is one set in which Espeon utilizes Choice Scarf to outspeed pretty much anything. Mixed Infernape (referred to as Mixape) has attacks rendered useless and because of Choice Scarf, it is slower and will take a OHKO from Psychic in return.]
Gengar [Once again, from the Scarf set.]
Heracross [Once again, Choice Scarf set.]
Blissey [If you use the Fake Tears set, just spam that three times and then you can proceed to KO it with Hidden Power [Fighting]
Umbreon [Umbreon can only attack by spamming Curse, in which by that time you can set up Substitute and do damage to it with Hidden Power [Fighting]
Gyarados [If you have Hidden Power [Electric], Gyarados is easily KOed by this.]

 

Sets

 

Sweeper Set

 

Espeon @ Leftovers
Synchronize
Timid Nature (+ Speed, - Attack)
EVs: 6 HP / 252 Special Attack / 252 Speed
- Psychic
- Hidden Power [Fighting] / Hidden Power [Ice] / Hidden Power [Grass] / Hidden Power [Electric]
- Fake Tears / Calm Mind
- Baton Pass / Shadow Ball

 

A fairly basic set. Psychic for your main source of STAB, and it hits a lot of things that don't resist it. The Hidden Powers are up to preference. HP Fighting hits Blissey, Tyranitar, and Weavile [to name a few.] for Super Effective. Ice hits Dragon types which would KO Espeon anyway due to most of them being faster. Grass for Swampert. Electric for Gyarados. Pick your preference. Fake Tears can force a switch and allow you a free switch in to set up something, such as Tyranitar. Or you could just use Calm Mind for sweeping. Baton Pass is if they have a counter out and you want to escape the deadliness of Pursuit and just get out. Or Shadow Ball if you have Calm Minds / Fake Tears on it and you want to hit it, or any ghost types slower than you.

 

EspyJump

 

Espeon @ Leftovers
Synchronize
Timid Nature (+ Speed, - Attack)
EVs: 196 HP / 122 Special Defense / 192 Speed
- Substitute
- Calm Mind
- Baton Pass
- Psychic

 

This set is a pure Set Up and Run. Set up your Substitute, Calm Mind until you're happy, then Baton Pass it off to your Special Sweepers. Psychic to attack if anything you can hit for super effective damage comes out.

 

Scarf

 

Espeon @ Choice Scarf
Synchronize
Timid Nature (+ Speed, - Attack)
EVs: 6 HP / 252 Special Attack / 252 Speed
- Psychic
- Shadow Ball
- Grass Knot
- Hidden Power [Fighting] / Hidden Power [Ice] / Hidden Power [Electric]

 

Gooood stuff, the BEST revenge killer. Psychic kills Gengar safely, and this thing can act as a Mixape counter. Grass Knot for heavy stuff you may run across such as Rhyperior. The Hidden Powers vary by what you want top hit.
