Or are they a combonation becuase when Leafeon is sent out it licks it's paw a more cat like thing to do and it's paws pattern of color is very similar to some cats(Including my cat) as having the paws a differant color than it's legs as does glaceon. While umbreon and Jolteon have commonly been refered to as dogs. Espeon looks and sits alot like a cat and is a psychic type thus smart and cats are waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay smarter than dogs. This is not an opinionated question it is a question about species so should not be voted down.

By the way scintists discoverd that beacuse dogs are mre social they lern more then cats and get a lot smarter then cats (the london vet universety)
Cats are smarter when they are staring into space they are thinking what to do next and besides dogs roll in and eat poop cats do not and cats use litter boxes dogs can't

"Eevee is a mammalian creature with brown fur, a bushy tail that has a cream-colored tip, and a furry collar that is also cream-colored. It has four short, feline-esque legs with three small toes on each foot. Eevee has brown eyes, big ears, and pink paw pads. It has traits of rabbits, raccoons, foxes, dogs, and cats."

Eevee and the eeveeloutions are usually accepted to be based off of either a fox (Eevee, Jolteon, Umbreon) or a cat (Espeon, Glaceon, Flareon, Vaporeon), depending on the form.

They are based on cats because if it were dogs thier claws woulkd be coming out of thier paws instead of being retracted. And in a way they all look like cats.

I truly believe eevee is a mixture of both, because Eevee itself seems to be based off of a vulpine. So in theory when it evolves, either have more canine or more feline characteristics. Especially with Sylveon now, that thing looks straight up like a cat. Along with Espeon and Glaceon, where Leafeon and Vaporeon could really go either way. Jolteon also looks like a fox or vulpine to me, where Flareon and Umbreon look more like dogs. In my eyes, they are probably all vulpines that associate more with dog or cat like qualities and traits.

I’ve always thought that Eevee was a dog, as it resembles a dog; its physical characteristics are that of a dog along with its personality traits depicted in the anime, etc. But I could see fox too, which would still make it a member of the canid family.

Those that are saying cat: I could see that as well, but only in some of Eevee’s evolutions, and not because cats are smarter. That’s just laughable. Cats are killing machines and not really all that affectionate unless it gets them something. They’re also solitary animals, with the exception of lions. The smartest animals on the planet are Humans, apes, chimps, dolphins, dogs, seals, and some birds. They all have one thing in common: they’re all highly social animals, which contributes to their intelligence as a whole, and can’t thrive on their own.

Cats don’t need that, because they are simply not wired that way, resulting in limited intelligence. And using the litter box is not a sign of intelligence, it’s instinctual for them to cover and hide their scent from other predators.

Dogs are simply more intelligent than cats, that’s not even a debatable fact. Glad I could clear that up for you all.

Like I said, if I had to guess - Eevee is more dog like. And the reason the eevolutions look so much different, could be to let the trainer evolve to their preference: whether they’re a dog person, or a crazy(overexposure to cat poop causes toxoplasmosis, which makes one more prone to mental illness) cat person.

-Someone that’s owned both cats and dogs.
