Espeon, Umbreon, Vaporeon, Flareon, Glaceon, Leafeon and Jolteon, that’s a lot of different evolution paths that one Eevee can take. Expect this to get even more complex with the release of Pokemon X & Y, which will introduce us to a new Eeveelution, Ninfia.
That’s the Japanese name obviously, expect something ending with ‘eon’ when the game is released in the west. Ninfia was revealed in the Japanese magazine CoroCoro, which revealed there is a secret to evolving your Eevee.
With ‘Fire’, ‘Ice’, ‘Grass’, ‘Water’, ‘Electric’, ‘Psychic’ and ‘Dark’ types already conquered, perhaps Ninfia will be a flying type. Whilst that’s little more than mere speculation we can confirm that in the Pokemon universe, Ninfia is 1m tall and weighs in at 23.5kg.
Pokemon X & Y are coming to Nintendo 3DS this October and are set to reinvent the way we look at the series on handhelds.
