Eevee (Japanese: イーブイ Eievui), the Evolution Pokémon is a fox distantly related to the fennec. It is a normal-type Pokémon with the uncanny ability to adapt masterly to its surroundings, allowing it the widest known range of possible evolutions of any of the Pocket Monsters; this is due to an irregularly shaped genetic structure. They are naive by nature, which may explain their rarity in the wild as it may indicate that they have become critically endangered, and even more likely close to becoming extinct in the wild as they are almost exclusively found in cities and towns.
Known evolutions, more commonly referred to as "eeveelutions", are listed below:
Eevees are mammalians, related to foxes and more specifically, fennec foxes and like fennecs, they have long, pointed ears. They have primarily brown fur (sable in the case of shiny Pokémon), with a cream coloration to both the tip of their bushy tails and a large furry collar. Their short, slender legs have three small toes, with footpads of a pink hue. Their eyes are brown, while their small nose is black.
Eevee shares traits with foxes, more specifically the fennec fox, dogs and cats. It is possibly based on the folklore of the tanuki (Nyctereutes procyonoides viverrinus), who is said to be able to transform and is the alternative name for the Japanese raccoon dog.
It may also be based on the concept of dog breeding and the multitude of variations that arose from it, or perhaps the fox's ability to adapt to extreme environments, like the desert fox and the arctic fox.
Eevee and Eievui are the pronunciations of E-V, the first two letters in the word evolution.
