    My Fav Eveloution is Espeon and Umbreon. Both because they were my starters in Colosseum. I couldn't decide what eveloution. Totally forgot to download it too. Oh well
  • Crabhand - April 6, 2011 8:29 p.m.

    Oh my, totally forgot to comment. The best Eeveelution is a tough choice. I have an affinity for ice types, so Glaceon is pretty high on my list in general. I really like Leafeon's design. I would have to say, however, that my favorite is Jolteon. All about speed, totally awesome outrunning pretty much anything. It's one of the few since my Pokérenaissance that I leveled to 100.
  • TheHangman - April 6, 2011 12:51 a.m.

    Jolteon was always my favorite because of a long story about my cousin and I playing Pokemon Stadium.
  • SoySauceHater - April 6, 2011 12:23 a.m.

    Plus, have you seen the OU Tier on Pokemon Wifi Battles? Ferrothorn is the most overplayed Pokemon in Gen V.
  • SoySauceHater - April 6, 2011 12:12 a.m.

    That Silhouette there kinda looks like an overweight Houndoom...
  • shyfonzie - April 5, 2011 11:13 p.m.

    Flareon FO LYFE. Flareon has a place of honour to me because it was the fire type on my teams in Blue and Crystal... Before I was old enough to know better. But I still think it's a cutie. Also, why did every eeveelution after the first gen abandon the manes? RIDDLE ME THAT, CAROLYN.
  • SumthingStupid - April 5, 2011 10:31 p.m.

    The original 3 are probably my favourites, just from growing up with the cartoon and playing red, if i had to choose it would be vaporeon he was the first time i evolved an eevee, i would like to see a dragon one that'd be cool the silhouette thing looked like a dog/pig/porcupine i think it was last week you guys dissed trubbish, i like his first form but his second just looks like shit is coming out of everywhere
  • deformedorange - April 5, 2011 9:38 p.m.

    for sure jolteon because it has good speed and an electric type is always important. since you can't get an electrode right away, jolteon works great
  • Larinah - April 5, 2011 7:26 p.m.

    Espeon is definitely my favorite. I love special sweepers, and then on top of that Espeon gets Magic Bounce for it's Dream World ability? HUWUUUUT? Thing I'm wondering is if I'm going to be able to reset to get a timid nature, and if I can get it as a female. If not, I'll just make do with amazingness.
  • chewbaca777 - April 5, 2011 7:10 p.m.

    i would have to say umbreon is my favorite from a pure appearence standpoint. he is so slick and spooky looking but glaceon i think is actually the most useful.i dont know who to choose for the give away!
  • Mallow - April 5, 2011 6:41 p.m.

    Oh dear. Who cannot love sweet, sweet vaporeon? Boasting incredibly high HP, and having some nice stats in special attack and defense, it's a force to be reckoned with. Not to mention its crazy move pool, allowing for some tactical decisions. Not to mention, it's VAPOREON.
  • philipshaw - April 5, 2011 1:04 p.m.

    Seems like another awesome podcast, listening now
  • FVDub - April 5, 2011 11:44 a.m.

    Jolteon for me as well. First Pokemon I ever leveled to 100, way back on Yellow. And hella fast.
  • SimSimSalabim - April 5, 2011 11:10 a.m.

    Jolteon. I know Umbreon and Espeon are good, but ever since playing blue as a kid, Jolteon has been my favorite. Its design, speed, and type are awesome and its definately one of my favorite Generation 1 Pokemon.
  • mackshizzle - April 5, 2011 10:41 a.m.

    I agree. My vote is for the mermaid ninja Jesus.
  • 510BrotherPanda - April 5, 2011 6:28 a.m.

    Tyler Nagata is still my favorite guest host! There WERE people playing DQ6 at Wondercon, Henry. I saw them on Friday and Saturday doing it ( I decided to get the 3-day pass this year). Still a little bummed that I didn't run into you or any of the other GR people... My favorite Eevee-lution is still Vaporeon. It was my main Water Type back in Blue Version, because I started with Bulbasaur and didn't train up any other Water Types like Gyarados. It's got nice defensives and Special Attack stats, and even though it's fish-like, I think it's still furry and not scaly. And that neck frill is so regal like Slowking's!
  • super0sonic - April 5, 2011 6:24 a.m.

    Flareon is the best he is soft and fluffy.
  • Cheech360 - April 5, 2011 4:23 a.m.

  • Amcnally - April 5, 2011 3:53 a.m.

    flareon used to be my favorite eeveelution from the older generations (cause i rocked wit blastoise & flareon was the yang to water's yin), but recently Leafeon hasn't failed me once... it's mad good and super cool looking
  • Xtapolapopotamus - April 5, 2011 3:31 a.m.

    Yay Pokemon Monday! I've always loved Vaporeon. I like water types in general, and something about it was always cool to me. Plus, he makes for a nice wall with his massive HP and ok defenses.
