On my playthrough of Shield, I caught an Eevee as the final member of my team. I only just beat Nessa, and I don’t know what to evolve my Eevee into. Any suggestions?
My team:
Thwackey @ Miracle Seed
Gyarados @ Expert Belt
Sizzlipede @ n/a
Vikavolt @ Magnet
Mudbray @ Shell Bell
Eevee @ Everstone

Espeon is probably your best option. In-game is all about hyper offense, so you want the eeveelution with the best attacking stats. Flareon has great physical attack, but it's slow and has a bad movepool, which is why I didn't mention it. Jolteon is also great, but has type overlap with Vikavolt. Sylveon is also a good option, but Espeon does pretty much everything Sylveon does but better.

Espeon has a great special attack stat, with 130. It also one of the best movepools of the eeveelutions with moves like Shadow Ball, Psychic, and Dazzling Gleam. Another thing Espeon has going for it is it's great 110 speed stat, making it the fastest evolution of Eevee save Jolteon. Espeon is usually a pain to evolve, but the introduction of curry makes it no problem at all.

Here's a moveset to have before the post game:

Espeon @ Twisted Spoon (or whatever you want)
Ability: Synchronize
- Psychic (by TR) / Psybeam (level up)
- Dazzling Gleam (by TR)
- Shadow Ball (by TR)
- Calm Mind (TR) / Work Up (TR, if you can't get Calm Mind)/ Morning Sun (level up, but Potions do it better)

You can also use something like Swift or Hyper Voice in the last slot. Make sure it doesn't have a speed or special attack decreasing nature.

It may seem confusing at first but it makes sense.
Sylveon with it's amazing typing (Fairy) with Great Bulk (130 sp. def) And Nice Special Attack (110 sp. atk)
It's ability Pixilate is monstrous, with stab hyper voice plus pixelate it deals a great amount of damage and you will have nice coverages and resistances over some strong types, and will be able to knock out Dragon Types fairly easily.

You already have coverage on water, electric, and grass, and fire! Fairy will be an excellent addition to your team.

Hope that answers your question!

I think Umbreon would fit nicely on this tea. You don’t have a dark type, and one wold help you later join with leaders such as Allister.
