If you’re a devoted player of Pokemon GO, you’ve probably made it part of your mission on the game to collect all of the Eeveelutions. Along with the normal evolutions of Eevee, dedicated players also want to evolve the shiny versions, too. With eight Eeveelutions plus Eevee itself, collecting all the shiny Eevee evolutions Pokemon GO has can be quite a task.

For this ranking, we’re not just looking at appearance. We’ll look at appearance in conjunction with max CP, stats, and potential in battle as well, to provide this list of all of the best shiny Eevee evolutions ranked from worst to best.

Updated on August 12, 2021 by Michael Christopher: Another Eevee Community Day is coming up, meaning you might catch a lot more shiny Eevee, so let’s take a look again at all of the shiny Eeveelutions! We’ve given this post a refresh to make it easier to read about each of the shiny Eeveelutions’ max stats and the Eevee nicknames you can use to evolve them.

Shiny Eevee

eevee and shiny eevee

While Eevee isn’t an Eeveelution within the technical feel, it’s miles the begin of all of it. Shiny Eevee is quite neat, muting out the colourful brown of everyday Eevee for extra of a faded grey. The hues are washed out and deliver a more subtle look to this fan-favourite Pokemon.

Even although it has a pleasing shiny variation, it’s going to of course rank the lowest in this listing because it’s simply unusable in most struggle formats.

Eevee is a Normal-type that has a max CP of one,210 (1,071 at stage 40) and 104/114/146 max Attack/Defense/Stamina. If you’re seeking to evolve bright Eevees, you’ll want to ensure their stats are maxed out to get the most effective versions that you could. This is particularly actual if you haven’t used any of the nickname tricks but, as you’ll without difficulty be able to evolve your Eevee into the shiny Eeveelution you want with out the trouble.

Shiny Flareon

Max CP (Lvl 40)Max CP (Lvl 50)ATKDEFSTANickname
Flareon3,0293,424246179163“Pyro”

Flareon was once one of only three shiny Eevee evolutions Pokemon GO had to offer, alongside Vaporeon and Jolteon. A Fire-type that has a max CP of 3,424 (level 40: 3029), Flareon has a nice max Attack/Defense/Stamina distribution of 246/179/163.

Flareon is an alright Pokemon to have when you need a Fire-type, but it pales in comparison to others, like Moltres, Heatran, Entei, Reshiram, and more. It doesn’t have access to a fantastic array of moves, either. However, since it isn’t a Legendary, it can be much cheaper to power up a Flareon than many of the top Fire-types.

Flareon is boosted by sunny weather, which is good to note if you’re trying to battle with your shiny Eevee evolutions. As far as appearance is concerned, the shiny Flareon is mostly just a muted version of the original. The coat is a more gold/tan color as opposed to a brighter orange/red that the original has. It’s alright, but it’s not the best shiny Eeveelution by any metric.

Shiny Leafeon

Max CP (Lvl 40)Max CP (Lvl 50)ATKDEFSTANickname
Leafeon2,9443,328216219163“Linnea”

Leafeon is one of the newer additions to the game as far as Eeveelutions are concerned. This is the Grass-type evolution and has a max CP of 3,328 (level 40: 2,944). While its max CP is lower than Flareon’s, Leafeon isn’t necessarily that much worse. For its stat spread, it has 216 /219/163 for max Attack, Defense, and Stamina. The problem is, Grass-types don’t have much place in the PvE meta, though they aren’t totally useless.

Shiny Leafeon is nice, if not a bit subtle. The colors become a bit darker and more vibrant, which is a nice differentiation from its normal manila-yellow that so many Pokemon are.

If you’re working to collect all the shiny Eeveelutions, this one might not be in your Pokedex yet. You can evolve as many shiny Eevee into Leafeon as you want, though, because they evolve into this Grass-type when you’re near an active Mossy Lure. It isn’t random like Flareon, Jolteon, and Vaporeon after you’ve used their nickname tricks.

Shiny Jolteon

Max CP (Lvl 40)Max CP (Lvl 50)ATKDEFSTANickname
Jolteon2,8883,265232182163“Sparky”

Jolteon is the Electric-type Eeveelution, introduced in Generation I with Vaporeon and Flareon. The brilliant model of Jolteon is not for anyone, however others find it irresistible. Jolteon’s coat modifications from a vivid yellow-gold to nearly lime green. It’s not the most attractive shade ever, however it is a amusing exchange it really is loads less diffused than other Eeveelutions.

With a max Attack/Defense/Stamina spread of 232/182/163, Jolteon sincerely packs a punch, but it’s a chunk of a pitcher cannon. Once upon a time, Jolteon turned into the ruler of Electric-types, but it has due to the fact been outclassed by using other Pokemon, like Electivire and Raikou. However, it nevertheless has some use in PvP, mainly the Ultra League. Its max CP is three,265 (2,888 at stage 40).

5 Shiny Vaporeon

Max CP (Lvl 40)Max CP (Lvl 50)ATKDEFSTANickname
Vapeon3,1143,521205161277“Rainer”

Vaporeon was one of the original Eeveelutions and has a max CP of 3,521 (level 40: 3,114). Players who have been around since Pokemon GO’s release might remember a time when ol’ Vaporeon was the undisputed champion of the game, easily being the best attacker against gyms. However, those days are long past, and Vaporeon has been knocked down the tier list several times, blow by blow.

Nowadays, it’s a nice budget option, but it’s significantly outclassed by Kyogre, Gyarados, Palkia, Swampert, and many more. It sees some use in the GO Battle League, with middling potential. However, it’s once again outclassed by other options in every league. Fortunately, with its 277 max Stamina, it can stay on its feet for a pretty decent amount of time. Its Attack is okay, maxing at 205, while its Defense is a bit disappointing at 161.

As for its shiny, Vaporeon’s new magenta coloring is definitely eye-catching. It’s probably one of the most drastic changes of any Eeveelution between the normal and shiny variants, and it’s definitely one of the more appealing ones.

Shiny Sylveon

Max CP (Lvl 40)Max CP (Lvl 50)ATKDEFSTANickname
Sylveon3,0693,470203205216“Kira”

Sylveon’s battle potential is on par with Vaporeon and Jolteon, but it ranks a bit higher than them thanks to its absolutely fantastic shiny form. Swapping out its pink for blue (and bits of blue for pink), Sylveon’s shiny is a standout that perfectly matches with its normal coloring. The two together are really great.

As for its combat potential, Sylveon is okay. It’s a decent option for a Fairy-type attacker, especially when you’re on a (candy) budget. With a max CP of 3,470 (3.069 at level 40), and 203/205/216 in max Attack/Defense/Stamina, it just can’t measure up to other Fairy-type attackers like Togekiss and Gardevoir. It’ll do alright in PvP, especially since it’s a good check on commonly-used Pokemon like Giratina and Dialga, but it still doesn’t measure up to Togekiss in higher leagues or Wigglytuff/Clefable in lower ones.

Shiny Umbreon

umbreon and shiny umbreon
Max CP (Lvl 40)Max CP (Lvl 50)ATKDEFSTANickname
Umbreon2,1372,416126240216“Tamao”

Umbreon might be one of the most sleekly designed Eeveelutions, and its shiny is just different enough to be a standout while being subtle enough to not be garish. While Umbreon’s black and yellow design is iconic and screams night-sky-with-stars, the shiny also gives off a nightfall vibe, but one that’s a bit more romantic and subdued with the black and blue. Either way, the night-like aesthetic is perfect for this Pokemon that’s so commonly associated with the night.

As for its battle potential, we’re finally getting somewhere on this ranking. Before the introduction of PvP, Umbreon was among the lower ranks of Eeveelutions due to its low CP and Attack. Now, though, it excels in both the Great and Ultra leagues, ranking in the upper tiers of all Pokemon.

With a max CP of 2,416 (level 40: 2,137), Umbreon is an alright defender in gyms, but not great as an attacker. In the Battle League, though, it’s one of the best. Due to its low Attack and high Defense (126 max Attack, 240 max Defense, and 216 max Stamina), it’ll stay standing for a long time against most attackers, save for Fighting-types. It never used to be that great in the Ultra League, but with the Best Buddy boost, it’ll be a massive tank and check common opponents like Giratina.

Shiny Glaceon

glaceon and shiny glaceon
Max CP (Lvl 40)Max CP (Lvl 50)ATKDEFSTANickname
Glaceon3,1263,535238205163“Rea”

Glaceon is the Ice-kind Eeveelution, introduced to the sport on the same time as Leafeon. Glaceon’s max CP is three,535 (stage forty: 3,126), which could be very exceptional. For max stats, you are looking at 238/205/163 in Attack/Defense/Stamina. These may not appearance that magnificent, but in PvE, Glaceon is a superb desire. Sure, it’ll be outclassed by Ice-kinds like Mamoswine and Weavile, but it’s miles a first-rate addition in case you do not have six of the pinnacle Ice-type attackers. Glaceon is without difficulty “B-team” cloth.

PvP is every other count number, as it does not shine an excessive amount of. Against the Dragon- and Ground-styles of the Ultra and Master leagues like Giratina and Groudon, it’s quite precise, however Ice is not extremely good defensively and Glaceon doesn’t have a whole lot of bulk.

As for shiny Glaceon’s layout, the Ice-kind isn’t triumphing any awards, but it’s miles very pretty. It’s possibly one of the most diffused changes at the entire list of vivid Eevee evolutions, swapping out some of the teal for a slightly bluer and lighter coloration. It honestly appears more “icy” in its vivid version, so it is excellent.

Shiny Espeon

Max CP (Lvl 40)Max CP (Lvl 50)ATKDEFSTANickname
Espeon3,1703,583261175163“Sakura”

Espeon is one of the most elegant looking of the Eevee evolutions, but the vivid version is pretty specific from the authentic. The regular Espeon has a light pink-crimson coat even as brilliant Espeon has a brilliant green one. It’s smooth to draw a assessment to a cool animated film alien, what with the brilliant inexperienced coloring, antenna-like tail, and spherical face.

While brilliant Espeon might be a chunk strange-looking, this Psychic-kind is effortlessly the first-class Eeveelution in conflict. With a max CP of 3,583 (three,one hundred seventy at stage 40) and max Attack/Defense/Stamina of 261/a hundred seventy five/163, it dominates against Fighting- and Poison-type raids and gym defenders like Machamp and Venusaur.

Its max Attack stat is the second one-highest of any Eeveelution stat (just at the back of Vaporeon’s max of 271 in Stamina), setting it simply in the back of absolutely the behemoths of the Psychic-kind like Mewtwo and Latios. Like Glaceon, it is a high-quality B-team desire, but it is able to make its way onto the A-group without problems, specifically given how a good deal greater obtainable it’s miles than different Psychic-type top-stages.

As for PvP… Let’s not talk approximately it. It’s horrific. But! If you are seeking to conflict along with your bright Eeveelutions in trendy, shiny Espeon is sincerely the high-quality in PvE, no contest.
