The brown furball has eight different evolutions modeled after natural elements like fire, water, ice, and wood.


Wood? There's no such type. If you're referring to Leafeon, that's a Grass type.

Yeah, I'm not really a fan. I think the Eevee and Sylveon ones are fine, but the others aren't very good. Especially the Vaporeon one, which doesn't fit at all. I've seen much better from other artists.

I'm kinda bummed out that my two favorite eeveelutions got the worst ones...

Right, sorry if I wasn't clear but traditional elements include wood and grass-type is somewhat based on that.

Eevee's is the best at attaining the Pokemon aesthetic, while Sylveon's is the cutest. Vaporeon's could fit in Pokemon Battle Revolution with a crisper art style, but Glaceon's is tragically plain, why would you do my favorite Eeveelution mediocre like this Japan?

Well, if we're splitting hairs, wood IS an element in many cultures (including Japanese), and "Grass" would be the type, so you're not wrong. (Kind of like how in-game, "Steel" is a type but NPCs and Pokédexes can refer to any metal for Steel-type Pokémon and moves...which can get more confusing because the TCG refers to that type as the Metal-type.)

Say "Wood-type" though, and so many Pokémon fans will be throwing virtual tomatoes.

I'm in love with the Sylveon Trainer. Her cheerleader outfit is amazingly adorable! Smile

I think the Sylveon one's the most creative of these.

Vapereon trainer wins all the style points. I like it the best.

I actually like the Glaceon design the best, which is good since it's my favorite Eeveelution. The Sylveon trainer is definitely cute and creative though.
