PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

I'm notreally a battler so I restarted x. I'm trying something different though:all eeveevolution team!
Charizard (Flareon, ignore the name)
Being ev trained in attack
Uncle Psy (soon to be espeon)
Shadow (soon to be Umbreon)
Misty (Vapereon)

But what about 6th slot?
Glaceon for more coverage, leafeon for grass type, or Sylveon for team flare butt kicking?
Thanks, in-game moveset for them too please?

It really just depends on what you want.

They are all very good Pokemon, which excel highly in whatever stats.
Leafeon's a great physical attacker and defender,
While Glaceon and Sylveon are great special attackers and defenders.

Leafeon is a great choice because you don't have many physical attackers in your party (except for Flareon, who unfortunately doesn't get many good Fire moves until much later in the game). So, you could use Leafeon.

But yet again, Sylveon is the Fairy-type - it's only weaknesses are Poison and Steel (two very rare types in the game) and is resistant to quite a few types. Plus, Moonblast is a great move.

Glaceon isn't as good, with only one resistant (and that's itself) as well as about five weaknesses. So it's incredibly fragile. But Blizzard is always a good option, if you want to use it.

I'm not good with movesets, so I'm not answering. :3
Since vaporeon can learn ice type moves, Im gonna cancel out Glaceon.
I think ill use leafeon. Thanks for the help!

First off, here is a nifty chart displaying the stat spread of the Eeveelutions.

Anyways, I would take Sylveon not for "team flare butt kicking" but for its typing and movepool. Sylveon only has two weaknesses - Poison and Steel. It can also learn a variety of moves through TMs and Breeding.

Sylveon @ Pixie Plate (for 20% more power on Fairy Moves)
Quiet Nature (^SpAtk v Speed)
EV Spread: 252 SpAtk, 252 SpDef, 4 HP
Ability: Pixilate
Dazzling Gleam
Hyper Beam
Draining Kiss

Here's to go more in-depth on my answer:

Sylveon has a base SpAtk of 110. With perfect IVs, maxed EVs and a beneficial nature, that's 350 Special Attack at Level 100. Now, to go more into the moveset:

Formula I used was (Base Power x Pixie Plate)STAB

Dazzling Gleam - Decent move, 80 Base Power, hits all adjacent foes. With Pixie Plate and STAB, this equals 144 Base Power. Very nice move to have. Learnt through TM99.

Moonblast - 95 Base Power with 100% Accuracy, and can lower target's SpAtk. Great move to have. With Pixie Plate and STAB this equals 171 Base Power. Learnt at Level 31.

Hyper Beam - HERE'S the big kicker. With Pixilate, the move is powered up 30% and changed to Fairy Type. This equals 195 Base Power. With Pixie Plate and STAB, this equals a whopping 351 Base Power with 90% Accuracy. This is Sylveon's main move. Learnt through TM15.

Draining Kiss - This gives Sylveon some recovery, healing by over half of the damage dealt. With Pixie Plate and STAB, this gives it 90 Base Power. Learnt at Level 20.
but all the Scrafty...
4x weakness to fairy...
I sorta don't agree with hyper beam... That recharge , it bugs me. Sylveon has good bulk but what if it was hit with a super effective move and died? And what about coverage? :  /
I would take Sylveon for many numerous reasons. Its abilities, stat spreads, and moves are awesome. And its Steel and Poison weaknesses are covered with your Flareon and Espeon!
