1. Smeargle

235Smeargle 7

Types: Normal
Generation: II

From the tip of its tail, it secretes fluids that it uses to paint and thus mark its territory. The pigmentation of the fluid changes according to his emotions and feelings, so that the color he uses in his drawings is a reflection of his mood. He continually looks for new adventures to increase the color combinations.

It is very rare, and few have seen it, but it tends to inhabit cities. It is said that when a Smeargle reaches adulthood, he allows other Smeargles to leave imprints on his back with their brushes. Although they mainly live in caves, so as not to disturb people and be able to paint freely, Smeargle are peaceful beings.

They feed on berries. They are generally calm but if disturbed they will schema and copy their attacker’s attack and use it against them. Smeargle appears to be a beagle with a brush-shaped tail and the top of his head resembles a beret, an accessory that artists often wear.

4. Vaporeon


Types: Water
Generation: I

If Eevee is exposed to a Water Stone, it evolves into a Vaporeon. He will be an excellent swimmer, capable of becoming invisible in the water, and will have great aquatic abilities. Vaporeon’s body is mostly blue. He has pointed yellow ears that help propel him when he dives, with which he can hear underwater. He has a shark-like fin on his head, and a white ruff on his neck, as if he were an emperor. He has scaly spikes on his spine that extend along his back.

5. Jolteon


Types: Electric
Generation: I

Jolteon is inspired by a fox. His fur allows him to capture and store a large amount of static electricity from the environment, causing it to bristle and harden into spikes, which he can use to focus and direct his electrical attacks against his rival. His hairs only turn into spikes when he feels threatened, scared, or angry.

His cells generate a low level of electricity, which, amplified by the static electricity of his skin, allows him to fire lightning. His neck is white, the rest of his body is bright yellow, his eyes are black, and he is the only Eevee evolution that lacks a tail, which is confused with his hair. He is often seen in mountains or in cities, and also near power plants.

6. Flareon


Types: Fire
Generation: I

If Eevee is exposed to a Fire Stone, it will evolve into Flareon, becoming a Fire Pokémon, so its nobility and exuberance will grow quickly. He is the most faithful of all, but his laziness will also be noticeable unless he is not pampered so much. He has a somewhat calm and cheerful character, but when he gets angry about something serious, he can become quite a fighter, since he has a patient but explosive temperament.

When Flareon gets nervous or anxious, he tends to release a large amount of heat through his fur. When meeting new people, it has some shyness, but as it gets used to it, it will become a loyal and affectionate Pokémon, good for keeping company.
